*Some of this will be C&P'd from 2013's letter

It's Yuletide already?!?!

Thanks so much for taking a look at my letter/offering one of my fandoms. I'm devilinacardigan on AO3 and Tumblr and I'm excited to see what you'll come up with! If this is as far as you'd like to go, I'm gonna take a longish story and make it short. Here are my Bookmarks and the fics I've put into my Memories if you're curious about what I might like. I enjoy works that are set post-canon, Yuleporn, outsider pov, slice of life, sex pollen (dub con), curtain fic,  super plotty shippy fic, drabbles, dark fic (Crueltide is welcome for all except The Tenant of Wildfall Hall. That's my happy place) and AU's that don't stray too far off from canon (Though I like them at other times, I'm not really interested in High School AUs or The Gang Starts A Band type fics for Yuletide).

I want to say thanks in advance and good luck! I can't wait to read whatever you come up with.

Hello! So you matched on one of my requests...

I'm devilinacardigan on AO3 and Tumblr where I mostly hang out these days, and I'm already excited to see what you'll come up with! If this is as far as you'd like to go, I'm gonna take a longish story and make it short. Here are my Bookmarks and the fics I've put into my Memories if you're curious about what I might like. I love works that are set post-canon, missing scenes, slice of life and AU's that don't stray too far off from canon (Though I like them at other times, I'm not really interested in High School AUs or The Gang Starts A Band type fics for Yuletide). Please believe that I requested these fandoms because I love the characters. I will probably enjoy just about anything you come up with as long as it showcases them.

I want to say thanks in advance and good luck! I can't wait to read whatever you come up with. Now, if you've got some time on your hands...


come on inCollapse )

And that's it! This is all optional, of course, so just write what's in your heart. I'm sure I'll enjoy it. Good luck and have fun!

Author. devlinacardigan
Title. All We Can Ask of a Puzzle
Pairing/Character(s). Joan Watson, Joan Watson/Sherlock Holmes
Fandom. Elementary
Disclimer. Don't own 'em, don't sue.
Rating. Adult
Author's Note. I enjoyed the darker tone of 1x12: “M” and have decided to travel further down that rabbit hole. This goes AU during the episode and never looks back. It answers the prompts haptically, checkmate and secret for Porn Battle XIV. I want to thank my beta, random00b and assure you that they are awesome and all lingering mistakes are mine. I hope you all read and enjoy!



Sherlock’s very calmly standing in the waiting room when they get back to the precinct: his hands in his pockets, the toe of his left boot jiggling against the linoleum. Gregson points at him, says, “In my office. Now!” He even waits until the door’s tightly closed, before beginning to yell.



Joan stands outside, pacing, only catching snippets of a mostly one sided argument.


(“… Where… our serial killer again?”

“…Gave me the slip...”

“.... “You apologize! … out on my streets doing god knows what because you decided to try and be a hero!”

“If it makes any difference…he’ll be plying his trade around here anymore. Not with… and his picture floating around.”

“Oh. So he’ll… Delaware or Jersey and start knocking off people…? Do you realize that you’ve aided and abetted a killer? … I’m going to be able to get you out of this, Sherlock. I don’t know if I even want to.”

“Captain—”

“Get out of my office.”)


Gregson sounds weary and Joan can imagine his hand on his temple, the drawn look on his face. He’s been with Sherlock the longest (dealing with his mood swings and his drug use and Watson really can’t begin to imagine what Sherlock on drugs must have been like). She knows he has a soft spot for the man but even he has his breaking points. Sherlock comes flying through the office door not a moment later, arms stiff and unmoving at his sides but she’s hot on his heels.


“Hey!” she calls out once then again. “Hey!” She finally grabs him by the sleeve when he refuses to acknowledge her and his head whips back in her direction. “What happened in there?” He looks down at her hand and she releases the fabric slowly. Joan doesn’t want him to just run off before she gets an answer. “Exactly what I told Captain Gregson. I had him but he got away. I have no idea where he is now.”


She studies him for a moment. “That’s the truth?”


“And nothing but.” He hasn’t given any of his usual tells: no narrowing of the eyes, no fidgeting and no bluster, but she knows he’s lying anyway.

I go where he goes, remember?Collapse )

Hiya author!

I'm DevilinaCardigan (there's an I missing in my lj name) over on AO3 and if this is as far as you'd like to go, I'm gonna take a longish story and make it short. Here are my Bookmarks and the fics I've put into my Memories if you're curious about what I might like. I'd love something set post movie, a missing scene, an AU that has some sort of basis in canon, or whatever else comes to mind. I like quiet fics as well so don't feel the need to do it up big if that's not where your muse is taking you. I enjoy slice of life fictions just as much as the super twisty ones.

I want to say thanks in advance and good luck! I can't wait to read whatever you come up with. Now, if you've got some time on your hands...
