The Countdowns SeriesRecipient: rodloxAuthor: scandalbabyVerse:
Joan Watson/Sally Donovan, BBC!Greg Lestrade, Marcus Bell & Elementary!Sherlock Holmes Rating:
This is a world in which most people have a timer on their wrist to count down until they meet their soul mate. Both Joan and Sally, however, have rather given up hope of meeting theirs, until a cross jurisdictional case lands them smack in each others path.Authr's Notes:
! Thank you for allowing me to try something a little different than what you asked for in your sign-up. When I saw you didn't mind allowing Sally Donovan in your fic, I had to ask if I could write my pet ship of Joan Watson/Sally Donovan, and I was so happy you said yes! I was originally going to do one long story, but due to RL issues I ended up writing you a series. It focuses mostly on the beginning of the Joan/Sally relationship, and it revolves around a case (and I made sure everyone was civil to everyone else, except to INTERPOL people) and if you like it I have plans of continuing it after Holmestice. It's also a soulmate AU, based on an idea from silentpeaches
on Tumblr ("It’s been a busy week and after finally having some time to yourself, you just happened to look at your soulmate clock and see that it’s already at 00:00:00:00 and you don’t know when that happened because you don’t religiously check your clock either
"). The series is going to continue after this, BTW, with mentions of other ships and stuff, but this is the start of it.
One thing: it's set after what I know of season 4 of Elementary and what's rumored to be in series 4 of Sherlock (just the vague "ending" feeling) so there's mentions of both Holmes/Moriarty and Holmes/Fiona as well as oblique but not spoilery series 4 stuff for Sherlock.( Read more... )
