Title: Charlotte Holmes in the 22nd Century
Recipient: [personal profile] language_escapes
Author: [personal profile] graycardinal
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
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.
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.]

Title: Nostoi
Recipient: Rocío / [tumblr.com profile] disheveledcurls
Author: [personal profile] sanguinity
Verse: New Russian Holmes x The Lost World
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes & John Watson
Rating: Teen
Warnings: None
Tags: Post-Reichenbach, Crossover, Action/Adventure, Hurt/Comfort, Happy Ending
Word Count: approx. 21,000
Summary: Holmes wants to see the last European pterodactyl safely home. Watson just wants to see Holmes happy again.

Author Notes: Comprehensive spoilers for the final episode of New Russian Holmes; light spoilers for Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World (i.e., the basic premise and the climatic moment -- which is a nice bit of drama, but doesn't spoil much of anything about the plot). The Lost World is available on gutenberg.org, but this story requires no specific knowledge of the novel.

Much thanks to [personal profile] language_escapes and [personal profile] grrlpup for beta, and to [personal profile] smallhobbit for Britpick!

Warnings: none
Summary: They have a barter system. It started early.
Author’s Note: Capt_facepalm, in your sign-up I noticed you listed “Humour” as a favored category and the Ritchie ‘verse as a favored adaptation. They seemed like a natural match, so I’ve tried to write you something light-hearted. At the same time, Watson’s first months back in London after the war were difficult for him, and I’ve tried to respect that as well. Thank you, [profile] thesmallhobbit, for beta-reading this and for suggesting the title.

Warnings: Character death (not Holmes or Watson); descriptions of Victorian child labor
Summary: In which Holmes is bested by a dying chimney-sweep, a retired music-hall artiste, and Dr. Watson; the episode does all four persons credit, and yet it is not an occasion for rejoicing.

Thanks as always to my indefatigable beta team, REDACTED.

Happy Holmestice, capt_facepalm! I hope I have done justice to the good Dr. Watson here. I can at least vouch for the research — which, by the way, was fascinating: thank you for welcoming the germ of plot that led me to do it.

Happy Holmestice, [livejournal.com profile] destntoast. You were very kind and generous with your request, providing me with lots of ideas for possible stories. In the end I settled upon the combination of a casefic and the POV from one of the series’ minor characters. I do hope you’ll enjoy!

Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Summary: Well, they had to have a conversation about living together, right?
A/N: I used the surname 'Hound' throughout because the English dub calls him Sherlock Hound. After 20+ years I'm used to calling him that for this version. Sorry if that screws anyone up. This takes place between episodes 1 & 2 (or episodes 11 & 10 if you watch on Youtube). Many thanks to the mods for running this fest.

fact, it actually does arise from a prompt or prompts supplied in
[livejournal.com profile] sanguinity's signup post.

long way since we first met. I daresay nowadays you sound more
like Sherlock Holmes himself than you do an evil mastermind."
