Pinch-hitter banner

I can now reveal my pinch-hitter fic for Sherlockmas this year. It was The Man with the Twisted Life for Goldvermilion87, who likes updated ACD cases and also wondered why Molly had ended up working in the morgue...

Spoilers for The Reichenbach Fall


It's only after Sherlock's funeral that Molly is certain they'll get away with it. She doesn't attend the service in case he decides to reappear then: her heart couldn't stand it. As it is, she's a nervous wreck, but everyone presumes that's just the grief of obsession. People think Molly's pathetic, clinging hopelessly to the belief that Sherlock wasn't a fraud. In fact she's mostly worried that someone will realise who rigged the DNA testing of the corpse.

And who pushed a dead man out of a second-storey window. She's much stronger than she looks; you have to be, in her job. And Sherlock's right, as usual. Smashed onto the pavement, one broken body in a fancy coat does look like another, if you're in complete shock. If you know that it's your friend there, your mind papers over discrepancies. The dead never look quite like the living: every doctor knows that.


Molly feels desperately sad for John, but she's gloriously unconcerned about Sherlock having killed Jim. Not after all the people he murdered, the children he tormented. She'd have shot Moriarty herself if she knew how to use a gun. At least she was useful this time. Though it's somehow typical that Sherlock also left her with the job of secretly removing Jim's body from the roof at Barts.


marysutherland: (Harry the Historian)

Happy Christmas to rabidsamfan

Rating: 12 (embarassing medico-historical facts)

Prompt: Harry/Molly, last word "bananas"


“We get to the junction in about a m-mile,” Harry said, staring at the map by torchlight.

“And what direction do we go?” Molly asked. There was a moment’s intense concentration in the passenger seat.

“Left,” Harry announced triumphantly.

Molly tried not to look relieved when the signpost confirmed that Shrewsbury was the next turn on the left. It hadn’t been an easy drive.

“I could have come on my own,” Harry said mildly. “Taken the train.”

“I wanted to come. You need...” Molly paused. She mustn’t say: You need looking after. “You need someone to discuss medieval medicine with.”

“They should have invited you to speak, not m-me,” Harry said. “Why does a Cadfael Weekend want a historian of eighteenth-century crime?”

“Because one of the organisers heard your talk about hanging, and thought it was brilliant,” Molly replied, smiling. “But please don’t mention post-mortem priapism this time.”

“Not very Ellis P-Peters?” Harry asked. “But it’s fascinating.”

Molly had mostly got over her fear that Harry would start drinking when she went off to conferences. Now she just worried that she’d tell a roomful of elderly women about hanged men getting erections. Or forget to sleep or eat properly. Which was why, besides the sexy underwear she’d packed for herself, their luggage also included ear-plugs, lavender oil, cereal bars and bananas.

The first of my two Summer of Sherlock fics It's raining, it's pouring went up on Thursday. It's yet another new pairing for me (Molly/Sarah).

I had a lot of help for this, when I asked for songs about rain (preferably from the early 1990s, when Molly would have been a teenager). There's a tracklist at the end of the fic, but I also had additional suggestions I couldn't use. So here, thanks to bookletting, flawedamethyst and shouldboverthis, is a tracklist with bonus tracks:


Main tracklist

Barbara Streisand/Donna Summer, No More Tears (Enough is Enough)

Geri Haliwell, It's Raining Men

a-ha, Crying in the Rain

Commitments, I Can't Stand the Rain

Frank and Nancy Sinatra, Something Stupid

Travis, Why Does it Always Rain on Me?

Zoe, Sunshine on a Rainy Day


Bonus Tracks

Madonna, Rain

Garbage, Only Happy When It Rains

Everything But the Girl, Missing

Billy Myers, Kiss the Rain

Heather Nova, London Rain

Jane Siberry, It Can't Rain All the Time

Blind Melon, No Rain

Jars of Clay, Flood

James, Sometimes

Please feel free to leave your own rain-related songs in comments, so my musical education can get expanded further. I am now off on holiday, which will hopefully involve not too much rain, and definitely will include broadband access.
