Fic for language_escapes: Charlotte Holmes in the 22nd Century

Title: Charlotte Holmes in the 22nd Century
Recipient: [personal profile] language_escapes
Author: REDACTED
Verse: Charlotte Holmes (Cavallaro); Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century
Characters: Charlotte Holmes, Beth Lestrade, OCs
Rating: G/Teen (some violence)
Genre: AU/Fusion; Gen
Warnings:
Assumes general knowledge of the Cavallaro books to date, particularly including the genealogical charts in The Last of August, but avoids specific spoilers; extrapolates from there.
Summary:
One hundred forty-seven years. Too long, I thought, and not nearly long enough. “I don’t imagine you’ve woken me just to chat about our respective ancestors. And the Yard has always had trouble with really creative criminals. Still—”

“We had hardly any criminals, period, for over fifty years,” Lestrade interjected. “Then about three months ago, things changed."


Introductory Notes:
I have taken liberties with both canons in developing the following narrative, for which I hope both the creators and the current readership will forgive me. [I have not, as a certain person dared me suggested, crossed over All The Things. But this is most definitely that person's fault.]

A remixed mashup of His Last Vow (3x03) and The Lying Detective (4x02), in which everyone's secrets and lies and unhappiness and anger are forced into a high-stakes confrontation.

For zaffrefic! Thanks for your extra prompts, which gave me lots to work with. I threw together Johnlock, Greek myths brought into world of Sherlock (or is it the other way round…?), John being the one who’s something “other,” defeating Moriarty, first time (erm, does just a kiss count?) – and ended up with this mash-up of mortals and gods. Thanks, too, for introducing me to the captivating music of Carolina Eyck – I don’t know that I used it directly, but I did listen a fair bit to get inspired.

Thanks to [personal profile] pipmer1, the most enthusiastic beta! And thanks to
