Story Title: Do You Want To Be With Somebody Like Me?
Fandom: BBC Sherlock
Link(s): AO3
Summary: Moriarty's return has only granted Sherlock a temporary reprieve from punishment over his actions regarding Magnussen, and when a mission involving Sebastian Moran crosses Mycroft's desk it seems to be the perfect way for Sherlock to pay his penance. This particular mission requires Sherlock to have a paramour, however, but Mycroft has that taken care of in the form of Molly. What begins as a ruse to fool Moran slowly becomes something more real, though, and as this mission takes Sherlock and Molly across the globe chasing after a ghost he begins to realize that there is much more that he can lose this time if he makes another wrong decision.
Warnings: Mild non-graphic violence, language
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft Holmes, Molly Hooper, Anthea & Sebastian Moran
Pairings: Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper
When I Started: June 24th, 2015
How I Lost My Shit: I think I was a tad overambitious when I started plotting out the end game after Prague and it scared me.
How I Finished My Shit: Panic & pride. Once I finished “No More Regrets” I took a good hard look at what else I could finish, and as I’d written four scattered chapters towards the end I decided this would be fic number 2. I managed to write the five chapters I needed to write all in one day, actually, and I think the story turned out well by ending the adventure in Washington DC as opposed to going further with it.

Anti-procrastination Tuesday

So what's on the To Do list for today? No procrastination allowed today - so it doesn't matter if you're tackling washing up, ironing, making a phone call or taking a day of self-care, today you don't procrastinate. You do your thing with all your heart, the available spoons and then you pat yourself on your back and congratulate yourself on a job well done!

In need of a challenge? Set a timer for an appropriate amount of time (appropriate according to your energy/available time/other commitments etc), find something that looks like clutter and either sort it and get rid of what is clutter or pack things away where they belong and create a space. How far can you get? 1/4 of the way through the pile/space, 1/2 of the way or even all the way? Don't be disheartened if it's not all the way - really consider what is a reasonable amount to have progressed through in the time you've allowed. Remember if you come across something important or urgent within the pile, let your priority change as appropriate - forward progress!

Good luck! And many many cheers!

Why this piece is awesome: This is a series of garden-themed pictures that so far includes Pearl, Amethyst, Steven, Peridot, Lapis, and Connie. I love the concept, the colors, and the wealth of detail in each of these — Lapis's picture even has water dripping out of the bottoms of the pots. There's some great characterization (Amethyst's version of a "garden" made me laugh). My favorite is Peridot's, which makes wonderful use of light and captures Peridot's nervousness about being able to take proper care of all these tiny Earth life forms.

Why this piece is awesome: The notes under the art are great - Zyden imagines this as how Rocket would train up baby Groot - starting with a water pistol. I love the energy in the picture and their fierce expressions, even in play.

The Bad Bridesmaid (Mycroft/Lestrade)

Title: The Bad Bridesmaid
Author: out_there
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Pairing/Characters: Mycroft Holmes/Gregory Lestrade
Length: 11,611
Notes: Written for 2017 Unconventional Courtship challenge. Thanks to [personal profile] celli and [personal profile] misbegotten for cheerleading with great enthusiasm. Thanks to [personal profile] tehomet for betaing and Britpicking.

Summary adjusted from Portia Macintosh's "Bad Bridesmaid".


Summary: "My wedding is ruined and my marriage is going to fail. And it’s all your fault!"

As a Geneva-based political consultant, Mycroft Holmes has it all: influence, money, success, a sleek and toned body and a string of sexy lovers. He's almost forgotten his previous self: Mikey Holmes, a plain and pudgy boy, later an awkward and clumsy teenager. Until a wedding invitation arrives requesting (demanding!) his presence as chief bridesmaid at his younger brother Sherlock's upcoming nuptials.

Mycroft's barely been back in England before he's accidentally injured the groom and been caught in a compromising position with his future brother-in-law's best man!

With the wedding of the year about to be doomed, Mycroft has no time to waste – especially with sexy detective and best man Greg Lestrade on hand to help...

It's challenge time!

Comment with Just One Thing you've accomplished in the last 24 hours or so. It doesn't have to be a hard thing, or even a thing that you think is particularly awesome. Just a thing that you did.

Feel free to share more than one thing if you're feeling particularly accomplished!

Extra credit: find someone in the comments and give them props for what they achieved!

Nothing is too big, too small, too strange or too cryptic. And in case you'd rather do this in private, anonymous comments are screened. I will only unscreen if you ask me to.

Go!

I've got three pinch hits to send out tomorrow morning which will have a due date of the evening of 25 August. Assume sometime after 11pm EDT but I can't be exact as I'll be traveling. I'm also still looking for a pinch hitter for pinch hit. There are also still some writers who requested an extension, so if you don't have a story and your prompts don't go out tomorrow morning, don't worry.

Feel free to edit your stories between now and reveals on 28 August. Or write treats for any prompt that catches your eye.

In the 23rd century, humans have colonized the solar system.

The U.N. controls earth.

Mars is an independent military power.

The inner planets depend on the resources of the asteroid belt.

Belters live and work in space.

In the Belt, air and water are more precious than gold.

For decades, tensions have been rising - Earth, Mars and the Belt are now on the brink of war.

All it will take is a single spark …
