In New Scotland Yard, Detective Inspector Greg Lestrade sat at his desk.  In his hands was a letter from Mycroft, who knew that the inspector was one of the few people that Sherlock could consider as an ally of his.  It had been hand delivered to him by one of Mycroft’s men.  The letter spoke about his previous encounter with the Black Lotus Tong and that they were coming after him and John to get revenge.  Lestrade sighed to himself.  He knew that Sherlock had made enemies in the past, but he knew in his gut that someone was going to get seriously hurt this time.

“Sir, we’ve got a call.  There’s been a body found.” a woman’s voice suddenly piped up, interrupting his thoughts.  The voice belonged to Sergeant Sally Donovan, one of his colleagues.

“Gender, location of body, and who found it?” he asked.

“Female, Lauriston Gardens, and two girls found it.” she replied.  Lestrade felt his stomach knot.  This sounded very familiar to the last of a series of murders he had investigated with Sherlock a few years back.  “Sir, are you alright?” Donovan asked.

“Yeah, I’m fine.  Get a team ready and head to the crime scene.  I’ll meet you there; need to head to Baker Street first.” Lestrade replied.

Donovan nodded, knowing why he was heading to a different location.  “Let’s get moving.” she commanded to some officers.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Meanwhile, Sherlock sat in his flat, deep in thought about the first time he’d encountered the Black Lotus Tong.  It had been an encounter that had almost cost John his life, and he knew that they would be after him to get their vengeance.  At that moment, he saw flashing lights which meant only one thing; there was a murder.  Sherlock turned as he heard footsteps running up to his flat, the footsteps belonging to Lestrade.  “Where is it?” he asked.

“Lauriston Gardens; it’s the same place where the body of Jennifer Wilson was found.” Lestrade replied.  “Donovan’s gone ahead to secure the crime scene.” he added.

Sherlock looked unhappy at the mention of Donovan’s name.  “You know how well Donovan and I get along.” he grimaced.

“I know, but I’ll make sure she stays out of your way.  Will you and John come to investigate?” he asked.

Sherlock sighed.  “Fine, it’s better than being bored here all day.” he replied.
“Thank you.” Lestrade smiled, looking relieved that he’d agreed to help with the investigation.  He made his way downstairs to head to the crime scene.

Sherlock sent John a text asking him to meet him at Lauriston Gardens.  A smile spread across his face.  “And so the game begins.” he grinned to himself.  He grabbed his coat and scarf and started to head downstairs.  “Mrs. Hudson, I’m heading out.  A new crime scene’s appeared.  It seems someone wants to settle the score.” he called to Mrs. Hudson.

“Do be careful out there, Sherlock dear.” Mrs Hudson called back as he walked by her flat.

“Why try to be careful?  It’s much more fun taking risks!” Sherlock smirked, a mischievous look in his eyes.  As he left 221B Baker Street, he hailed for a taxi and departed for Lauriston Gardens.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Eventually, Sherlock arrived at the crime scene.  John was already waiting for him.  “I don’t know about you, Sherlock, but I’m getting a serious case of déjà vu here...” John shivered, looking a little worried.

“Oh relax, you’re fine.  Déjà vu is your body’s reaction to the weakness of melancholy.” Sherlock replied, dismissing John’s worry.  The two men headed upstairs to where the body was laying.  Police officers were gearing up to investigate the crime scene.  Sherlock noticed that Donovan was keeping a watchful eye on the proceedings.  “Sergeant Donovan.” he nodded in greeting.

“Holmes.” Donovan nodded back in reply.  “Well, this must bring up memories.” she grinned.
Sherlock didn’t reply as he went to investigate the body.  “Everyone, move out of the way for a few minutes.” Lestrade ordered his officers.

Once Lestrade had gotten everyone out of the crime scene, Sherlock knelt down next to the body of the woman lying dead before them.  He noticed immediately that she was newly engaged from the shine from the ring on her ring finger.  As he looked over her body, he made more deductions; she wore smart formal clothing that looked very modest, which suggested she probably worked with media as a producer or preferred to work behind the scenes.  He noticed scuff marks on her nails which suggested she had tried to defend herself from the killer.  But there was something else on the crime scene that he recognised immediately; a black lotus made from origami.  “John, I need you to take a look at the body.” Sherlock announced.

Pulling on some protective gloves, John knelt down and had a closer look at the woman’s body.  “Oh, sweetheart, what happened to you?” he whispered sadly.  He noticed that she had bruising around her neck which was consistent with strangulation.  Slightly turning the body, he noticed that someone had carved a lotus into her torso.  “Oh, Jesus Christ...” he croaked, looking like he was about to be sick.

Sherlock looked unfazed, but seemed to be intrigued by the carving.  “Now this is new...” he mused, having a closer look.

“That’s all you have to say?! ‘This is new...’?!” John spluttered, looking alarmed at his friend’s lack of concern.

“Don’t you see the significance?” Sherlock asked.  “The black lotus origami was a message left by the Black Lotus Tong last time.  But the fact that the body has a carving of a lotus can only mean one thing; the motive for this game has changed.  The killer’s warming up for something bigger.” he explained.

Lestrade walked in as soon as Sherlock had finished his main deductions.  “We checked for anything that might give us some clues and found her purse and personal belongings in a rubbish bin.  Victim’s name is Annie Bridges.  She lives in the Camden area.” he announced.  “Alright, what’ve you got for me?” he asked.

“She was newly engaged, going by the shine of her ring.  She worked in media but preferred to work in production, from the look of her clothing.  Her nails show signs of self defence, which means she tried to fight off her attacker.” he began.  “She has bruises on her neck, which means she was strangled to death.  Her torso, however, tells a different story.  The carving was made after her death, which means the killer must have wanted to leave a message...or was unsatisfied until he or she saw some bloodshed.” he continued.

“So, what exactly are we looking for?” Lestrade asked.

“We’re looking for a killer who has a taste for blood.” Sherlock replied.

“Wait a second, Sherlock.  Didn’t Mycroft mention that the new leader of the Black Lotus Tong has a love for blood?” John remembered.

“Yes, that means if she’s the killer, it’ll only be a matter of time until her next victim...” Sherlock nodded, looking solemn for a moment.  He then clapped his hands together.  “We have a serial killer on our hands, brilliant!” he exclaimed.  “Lestrade, locate anyone who knew Annie closely.  John, contact Molly and let her know she has a new addition to St. Bart’s morgue.” he called, running downstairs.

John watched him go.  “Now that part; that wasn’t a case of déjà vu.” he sighed as he dug out his phone.

This is my first Sherlock fanfic, and I hope I’ll do the show and characters justice! The idea for the story came to me when I was asleep, funnily enough, and also by browsing Sherlock x Molly fan art.

But anyways, I hope you all enjoy it! I don’t own Sherlock or the characters from the show; they belong to the BBC, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It was a cold and dreary evening in London.  Near the centre of the city, Big Ben struck 8pm, the eight chimes echoing across the evening sky.  The rain splashed heavily against the pavement, as though the clouds had been pierced and were leaking all the water they stored out on anyone unfortunate to be out in the cold at the time.  All seemed quiet in the city as the people went about their business.

Well, except for the famous ‘consulting detective’ Sherlock Holmes.

He stood in his flat at 221B Baker Street, lost in thought inside his ‘mind palace’ thinking about a case he was working on, his train of thought going over the details like a complicated jigsaw puzzle. The only sound he could hear, or rather was allowing his ears to hear, was the sound of him playing on his violin, playing one of his many melodies to help him think.

SEVERAL HOURS EARLIER...

Earlier that morning, his older brother Mycroft had called for him to see him in his office. “Official business, so make sure you’re on time.  And do make sure you’re wearing clothes, brother of mine.” he’d explained in his secretive ways.  He occupied a minor role in the British Government; yet to Sherlock, Mycroft Holmes was the British Government.

No sooner had Mycroft finished calling him, Sherlock was taken by car to his office, escorted by some men in suits; something Sherlock had now become quite used to whenever Mycroft had a problem he couldn’t solve by himself.  Awaiting him was his best friend John Watson.  He had recently become a father, his wife Mary having given birth to a baby girl.  Sherlock noticed right away the dark circles under John’s eyes.  “You seem more tired than usual.” Sherlock observed.

“Yeah, well, apparently babies think that in order to get some sleep, both Mummy and Daddy need to be awake as well.” John replied, seeming to be slightly moodier than usual.  He stifled a yawn as the two men were led to Mycroft’s office.

“Good to see you again, boys.” Mycroft’s assistant Anthea smiled as they walked by.  Sherlock noticed she was busy with her phone, as she seemed to always be.

“You should cut down visiting those gossip sites; they’re nothing but useless and unimportant news.” Sherlock replied, deducing her from a single glance.  He was definitely in a bad mood this morning.

John rolled his eyes, but gave Anthea a friendly nod.  “Sherlock, what’s going on?  Why does your brother want to see us at this time of morning?  He should’ve realised that taking care of my wife and baby daughter are my main concerns now.” he asked quietly.

“Perhaps he has an itch that he can’t seem to scratch with his umbrella.” Sherlock muttered, causing the two men to grin, trying their hardest to stifle their laughter.

They were led inside Mycroft’s office and directed to their seats.  “Ah, I’m glad you got here on time.  And at such short notice too.” Mycroft beamed at his guests, holding a brown file in his left hand.  In his other hand, he held his trademark umbrella.

Sherlock sighed with contempt with his brother’s ‘welcome’.  “Mycroft, you know I hate rude awakenings, especially when I should be asleep at this time of morning.  Now what could possibly warrant me being awoken at 6 o’clock in the morning?” he asked impatiently.  He clearly didn’t enjoy being here and certainly had more important things to do than clean up the messes his older brother and the government made.

“I’m sure you remember the case involving the Black Lotus Tong?” Mycroft began, showing his brother the contents of the file.  Sherlock leaned over to have a closer look, the cogs and gears of his mind starting to click as he looked over each of the details.

John sat up at the mention of the Black Lotus Tong.  It was a name he recognised all too well.  “I remember them; they’re the ones who thought I was Sherlock and tried to kill me!” he realised.  “I thought they’d escaped back to China?” he asked, with a look of confusion on his face.

“I thought you would.  It seems that they’re back in London, only this time with a different motive.” Mycroft replied, sitting at his desk.  “As I’m sure you remember, the Black Lotus Tong were at one time involved with Moriarty and had tried to smuggle Ancient Chinese artefacts into London.  However, it seemed that one of two English smugglers they’d employed had betrayed them, which led to them eliminating both of them.” he continued, recounting the main details of the case.

“But why have they come back now?” John asked.  He looked more worried than confused now, especially at the thought that his family could be in serious danger.

“Ah, that’s where you and my brother come in.” Mycroft answered, handing him a small leaflet.  “The British Museum will be hosting an event to mark the Chinese New Year with an exhibition of Chinese artefacts as the main headliner.  We’ve received word that the Black Lotus Tong are after you two.” he began.

“Let me guess; they’re still angry that I shut down their little smuggling scheme and now want to come after myself and John to have revenge?” Sherlock interrupted, raising his head from reading the file.

“Well, to put it bluntly; yes.” Mycroft nodded.

“Oh...Boring!” Sherlock replied in a sing-song voice.

“Sherlock, this is serious!  Mary and the baby could be in danger!  If the Black Lotus Tong finds out that I have a wife and daughter, they’ll come after them too!” John exclaimed furiously.

“Oh relax, they’ll be fine.  They probably think you’re with that woman they kidnapped with you...Sadie?” Sherlock answered calmly.

“Sarah.” John corrected him.

“Right, that one.” Sherlock nodded.  “Mycroft, if they were really after me, they would’ve done it a lot sooner, don’t you think?” he added, casting an unamused glance to his brother.

“There’s a new leader in charge here, and she’s not playing any games.  We have reason to believe that she could be as dangerous as Moriarty, perhaps more.” Mycroft answered.

Sherlock sat back with a serious expression on his face.  “What did you say?” he asked quietly.

“There’s someone more dangerous than Moriarty?  That can’t be possible, can it?” John asked.

“Her name is General Lien.  She’s become well known in China for her sadistic personality.  They call her the Daughter of Red, due to her red lipstick...and love of blood.” Mycroft explained as he handed them a file showing details of a young Chinese woman with a photo included.

John looked over the file.  “How did she get to the top of the gang?” he asked.

“There were rumours that she is the daughter of someone higher up in the gang who died and thus their title was passed to her.  Others say she earned the role of leadership by seducing men higher up in the gang and having them promise her their power.” Mycroft replied.

“Do you think she’s here in London, right now?” John asked.  He was looking over to Sherlock, who was engrossed in the file Mycroft had just given them.

“We can’t say for sure, but the Chinese government has begun shipping out artefacts to London for the exhibit.  There have also been several murders committed by the Black Lotus in China, and we have reason to believe that General Lien may plan to commit more while she’s in London in order to draw you out.” Mycroft replied.

Sherlock snapped the file shut.  “Well, that’s just part of the fun with serial killers, isn’t it?” he grinned, a familiar twinkle in his eye.  “John, get your coat.” he began.  
He swiftly took to his feet, pulling on his own coat and wrapping his scarf around his neck.

“Uh, where’re you going?” John called, unsure of what was happening.

“Oh, didn’t you know?  The game, John, is on!” Sherlock exclaimed, leaving Mycroft’s office.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8PM, 221B BAKER STREET

Sherlock played his violin, thinking over every piece of detail, when his thoughts were interrupted by his landlady Mrs. Hudson calling for him; “Sherlock, there’s someone at the door!”

“Tell them I’m busy!  I’m in the middle of a case!” Sherlock answered back with irritation in his voice.  Turning back to his violin, he resumed playing when there was a loud knock on the flat’s front door.  “Mrs. Hudson, I thought I told you I was-!” he yelled, opening the door.  He stopped when he saw who was there in front of him:  “Molly.” he blinked, an uncharacteristic expression of surprise registering on his face.

The pathologist looked like she’d been out in the rain for quite some time; her brown hair was sticking to her wet skin, her clothes were completely drenched with rain and she was shivering.  But what stood out most to Sherlock was the redness of her eyes.  It looked like something had made her cry, and it seemed like she’d come quite a distance to see him.  “I-I’m sorry if I’m interrupting you, but I-I really need to talk to someone.” she stammered, her voice sounding like she was about to cry again.

Sherlock felt his stomach knot.  Part of him wanted to pass this off as part of the weakness that was sentimentality, but the other side of him felt like he owed it to her that he listen to her problems.  After all, she’d been so much help to him, she deserved at least some spare minutes of his time.  “Who’s hurt you?” he asked gently, instinctively knowing that Molly wouldn’t be crying without a reason.

Molly burst into fresh tears, practically throwing herself onto Sherlock.  “I-I don’t know why-” she began, getting choked up with her words through her tears.

Sherlock surprised himself by wrapping his arms around Molly’s quivering form.  “Mrs. Hudson, put the kettle on.  We need some tea.” he called, his voice now in a soft tone.

Molly sat in the sitting area of Sherlock’s flat.  He had given her some of his spare clothing while her wet clothes were being dried by Mrs. Hudson.  The spare clothes were baggy and loose on Molly’s small frame, making it look like she was in her pyjamas.  In her hands was a hot cup of tea, brewed to keep her warm and to stop her shivering.  Sherlock sat down in front of her.  Unlike the many times he’d had people sit before him, she wasn’t his client; instead she was just a friend who needed a shoulder to cry on.  “Now, tell me what happened.” he prompted her.  “Please.” he then added, his voice almost in a soothing tone.

She let out a heavy sigh, as though a heavy burden was on her shoulders.  “Well, I was going to meet Tom for coffee - you remember Tom, my ex-fiancé?” she began.

“Yes, of course.” Sherlock nodded.  He remembered the very moment he met Tom.  The man had dressed similar to Sherlock and looked almost like him; the only thing that could tell the two apart was Tom’s lack of logic.  Sherlock had held his tongue about Molly’s choice for a potential husband, but even he knew she could’ve done better.

“He said he wanted to talk to me about something important, and asked me to meet him for coffee at where we had our first date.” she continued, before suddenly looking a bit embarrassed.  “I’m ashamed to admit this, but I thought that he wanted to see me because he wanted to give us another go.” she confessed, rubbing behind her neck.  “But anyway, I got there and saw him talking to another girl.  I thought that she was probably a cousin or an old friend of his, so I didn’t notice anything suspicious.  So, I waved to him, but he didn’t notice me.” Molly explained.  “A-And then, I saw something else...” she paused.  She bit her bottom lip as more tears started to form in her eyes.

“What is it?  What did you see?” Sherlock asked, even though he knew the answer already from the tearful look on Molly’s face.

She took a gulp of tea to steady her nerves for a moment.  “Tom and that girl; t-they were kissing.” she croaked.  Sherlock looked somewhat saddened when she gave her answer, despite knowing what she would say.  “I didn’t know what to think, so I went in there and shouted at him, saying that if meeting his new bird was that important, he should’ve told me from the beginning.  A-And then I stormed out.  Tom was trying to say something but I was too upset to listen.  I don’t know if he followed me, but I just started running.  I couldn’t stop crying.  It’s like he’d thrown everything about our relationship right back in my face.” she continued.  She looked up at the ceiling, trying to regain her composure.  “I’m sorry you have to see me like this, I know relationships aren’t your cup of tea.  Sherlock, do you think I was stupid to see him?” she asked, turning to face him.

Sherlock listened to her story, making observations about Molly’s behaviour.  It was clear that Tom’s actions had caused her considerable pain.  “You had a lucky escape when your engagement ended.  Tom’s actions were unforgivable and he should’ve considered your feelings when he asked to meet you.” he began, his hands under his chin.  “Listen to me, Molly Hooper; you should never for one second think that you are stupid.  You will find the right man who will treat you as the unique person that you are.” he continued.

Molly felt her cheeks blush with a faint red.  Sherlock Holmes is saying something...nice to me? she thought.  “Thank you, Sherlock.  I feel a little better now.” she smiled.  Sherlock immediately noticed the change in her.  The heaviness on her shoulders now seemed to be lifted.

“Here we are, sweetheart.  Your clothes are now completely bone dry.” Mrs. Hudson smiled, bringing Molly’s now dry clothes.  They’d been ironed and cleaned, now smelling completely fresh instead of the dampness of the rain.

“Thank you, Mrs. Hudson.” Molly beamed, taking the folded clothes from her.  “Um, can I-?” she began, looking at Sherlock rather shyly.

Sherlock nodded to give her the go-ahead.  She didn’t need to finish her sentence.  The only room with enough privacy in the flat was the bathroom.  “Take as much time as you need.” he replied.

Molly gave him a grateful smile and went to get changed.  As soon as the bathroom door was shut, Mrs. Hudson looked towards Sherlock.  “I’m surprised you haven’t asked her out.  The girl is very fond of you, Sherlock.” she beamed.

“Sentimentality is a weakness that affects people’s emotions.  It weakens resolve and renders a person more susceptible to their deeper thoughts.” Sherlock replied coolly.  “And it’s a weakness I do not need.” he added, looking towards his landlady.

“Mark my words, Sherlock Holmes; you’ll end up regretting you said that.  She’ll mean more to you than you thought she did.” Mrs. Hudson chuckled as she left the flat, heading to her own downstairs.  Sherlock shook his head to himself dismissing her words as just that; words.

As soon as she’d left, Molly came out of the bathroom, now dressed in her own clothes.  “I should get going.  Toby will need some feeding, and he tends to get a bit grumpy if I don’t feed him on time.” she smiled.  “I put your spare clothes away for washing.  You don’t mind, do you?” she asked, hoping she hadn’t insulted him in some way.

“No, it’s fine.” he replied, grabbing his coat and scarf.  “Shall we be off then?” he asked.

“Off? Where’re we going?” Molly asked, looking confused.

“I’m escorting you home of course.” Sherlock replied.  “Is that going to be a problem?” he asked.

Molly felt her face go a little more red than earlier. “N-No, of course not...” she stammered, a little shocked that Sherlock was volunteering to take her home.  What did Mrs Hudson put in his tea? she thought.

“Good, then I suggest we go now.  Don’t want to make Toby upset now, do we?” he smiled before heading downstairs.

Molly nodded, somewhat speechless.  A compliment and a walk home on the same day?  I must be dreaming... she thought to herself as she headed after him.

Sherlock opened the door and slightly grimaced at the sight of the weather.  “It’s still raining.  We’ll have to make sure we get there without you getting wet again.” he pondered.  He then slightly removed his coat before offering it to Molly.  Registering the puzzled look on her face, he sighed.  “It’s to cover you from the rain.” he explained, making it as simple as he could.

“Oh, of course.  I should’ve realised.” Molly smiled, laughing a little nervously.  She felt a bit mad at herself for not realising it in the first place, and for making herself look a bit of an idiot in front of the man she cared about more than anything.  As they stepped outside, Sherlock covered Molly with his coat.  Molly felt her face go red once again.  It was true that he could be a gentleman when he wanted to be, but it was a side that Molly had never had the chance to see herself.  She looked up at him as they started to make their way to her home, her heart beating faster.  It was true that Sherlock Holmes was a good looking man, but to Molly, the rain seemed to compliment his looks.

Eventually, they arrived at Molly’s home.  Sherlock kept a close guard on her, using his body as a shield to keep her from the rain.  As she unlocked her front door, Sherlock watched over her.  There was an awkward silence between the two until Sherlock broke the ice with two words: “Thank you.”

Molly stopped in her tracks and turned to him with a look of confusion.  “For what?” she asked.

“For everything you’ve done for me.” he replied softly.  He then lent in and gave her a kiss on the cheek.  Molly felt what seemed to feel like a shot of electricity shooting through her body.  He’d kissed her on the cheek before, but this time it felt...different.  “Goodnight, Molly Hooper.” Sherlock smiled.

“Goodnight, Sherlock Holmes.” she replied, restraining herself from throwing herself onto him again.  His job complete, Sherlock started to walk back home.  Molly watched him go before heading inside.  As soon as she was in the warmth of her home, Molly leant back against the door, her head swimming with emotions about the time she’d spent with Sherlock.  Was all of that a dream, or did it all really happen? she thought.  Her thoughts were interrupted by her cat Toby rubbing against her leg with his head.  “I know; it’s feeding time.  Come on, buddy.” she smiled, heading into the kitchen to get his food.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At the same time, Sherlock was walking back to Baker Street.  Hidden in the shadows, a figure watched his moves very closely.  He held a button on his headset to contact someone.  “General, I have confirmation.  Sherlock Holmes is in London.  Shall I commence the attack?” he asked in Mandarin Chinese.

No.  It is not the right time.” a woman’s voice replied.  “We wait for the New Year exhibit.  Continue your observations.” she ordered.

As you wish.” he replied.

The woman sat back in her chair and gazed at a photograph on her desk.  It featured a middle aged woman; the previous leader of the Black Lotus Tong, General Shan.  “Do not worry.  Your death will be avenged soon.” she vowed, her fingers trailing on the picture frame.

My Sherlock Ship Meme by tifafenrir09
My Sherlock Ship Meme
Original meme by :iconthemusessong:

After watching the TV series Sherlock, I knew I had to find a shipping meme and found one! A word of warning, there will probably be some spoilers, so if you haven't watched the show, be careful!

So, without further ado, let's get on with the show!

OTP:
Sherlock Holmes x Molly Hooper (Sherlolly) These two would make a lovely couple. I like that Molly is willing to do whatever she can to help Sherlock with his cases as it's no secret she has feelings for him, and Sherlock knows this. The only downpart is that he uses her feelings for his own gain, but that doesn't mean he doesn't acknowledge her importance to him, especially during the events of the second series. I seriously hope that they develop more on these two in the fourth series.

Ship:
John Watson x Mary Morstan (Johnary) I love these two together! I loved the fact that Mary is played by Martin Freeman's real-life partner Amanda Abbington, and they have a great chemistry on screen. You can feel the love the two characters have for each other, despite their ups and downs. They have a sweet relationship and I hope they'll find some real happiness.

Sherlock Holmes x Irene Adler/The Woman (Sherlene) I really like these two as a couple. They have some good chemistry, despite Irene being in only one episode in series two and a brief cameo in series three. While Irene claimed that she was "playing the game", I believe she truly did love him. Sherlock probably knew this; why else would he come to save her when she was facing death? I liked how Irene was portrayed on the show, and I hope they bring her back for another episode.

Okay
Greg Lestrade x Mycroft Holmes (Mystrade) This pairing is one I haven't really seen much development for. While it's more of a professional relationship when it comes to work, when it comes to romance it's an unusual one, but then again, Mycroft's sexuality is never really stated, so it could be a potential pairing. But who knows?

Mycroft Holmes x Molly Hooper (Mycrolly) Like Lestrade x Mycroft, this is a pairing without much development, and is more of a professional relationship, but then who knows?

Irene Adler/The Woman x Molly Hooper (Mollrene) This is an interesting pairing, as Irene has done work with both sexes, so it wouldn't surprise me if she and Molly ever got together. I know which one would be the more dominant one in the relationship, and it would make a change for Molly's taste in relationships.

Don't Like
Sherlock Holmes x John Watson (Johnlock) I know I'm probably going to get flamed for this, but...I don't actually like Johnlock! I see them as just friends and partners. I also don't like how some of the pairing's fans have acted due to their love of the pairing. Sorry, but I just don't like them as a couple!

Mycroft Holmes x Sherlock Holmes (Mycrolock) I really don't like this pairing because, 1. they're brothers and 2. it's incest! They've never really got along, what siblings haven't? Enough said.

Jim Moriarty x Sebastian Moran (Jimstian) This paring is barely shown as Sebastian Moran hasn't been shown in Sherlock yet. Should they introduce him or develop a relationship for Moriarty, I'll change this pairing.

Sally Donovan x Greg Lestrade and Philip Anderson x Greg Lestrade (Salstrade and Anderstrade) I don't like either of these pairings as they're just officers and superior. Lestrade is more respectful towards Sherlock than either of his colleagues, so neither of the pairings would last.

Kill It With Fire
Sally Donovan x Philip Anderson (Sallderson) These two are my least favourite characters, but Anderson to his credit is slightly better than Sally, in the fact that he's slightly warmed to Sherlock. Sally on the other hand, I disliked from the very beginning. She was nothing but bitchy towards Sherlock, even calling him a freak when we first meet her. Whether she's warmed up to him now that he's back, I haven't a clue, but a leopard never changes its spots.

Jim Moriarty x Sherlock Holmes (Morialock) I'm not a huge fan of this pairing, because Moriarty has been nothing but a thorn in Sherlock's side from the beginning. He's threatened the lives of all those Sherlock holds dear to him and tried to destroy his reputation as well. If Moriarty's truly back, I think he's in for a world of hurt after everything he's done to Sherlock...

BrOTP
Sherlock Holmes x John Watson (Johnlock) As I mentioned I'm not a fan of the Johnlock pairing romance wise, it doesn't mean I don't like them as best friends or a "bromance". They have a close bond in the series, where the sidekick is trying to keep the hero in check, and most of the time, it works.

Mary Morstan x Sherlock Holmes (Marylock) These two have such a good relationship, almost like a big sister looking after a little brother. She's had a lot to go through and the fact that he approves of her marrying John is a huge sign of respect from him, considering his personality.

Greg Lestrade x Sherlock Holmes (Sherlstrade) These two have an entertaining friendship, based on respect and admiration on Lestrade's side. It shows how far Sherlock has come when he asked for Lestrade's help when he was writing his best man's speech in series three, when before he wouldn't be trusting anyone.

Greg Lestrade x John Watson (Jonstrade) Like Lestrade and Sherlock, these two have a friendship based on respect. They're both in a sense spectators to Sherlock's madness and were the only ones to believe Sherlock was never a fake, despite the seed of doubt being planted in Lestrade's mind by Anderson and Sally.

Mycroft Holmes x Sherlock Holmes (Mycrolock) These two don't necessarily have a bromance, but it's more like sibling rivalry, and Mycroft probably does love his brother, but just has no proper way of showing it. But I hope their relationship will start to improve now that Moriarty is apparently back.

Man, that's a lot of writing! Another note; I will disable comments should any shipping wars start occuring!

Chibi Final Fantasy VII OC Girls by tifafenrir09
Chibi Final Fantasy VII OC Girls
Base: :iconbases-xs:

Here's a pic I did sometime last year, and this shows four of my ocs for one of my favourite games; Final Fantasy VII.

From clockwise from right: Cassidy, Lucy, Rayne and Susan.

Rayne was my first oc for the game, and her bio is on my account. The other 3 are characters I made later on. Susan and Lucy are based on two of my Beyblade ocs Syuza Ivanova and Lucy Shield. In this version, they're known as Susan Valentine and Lucy Song. Cassidy is my geek girl and was in fact made shortly after Rayne, but I worked on her last year.

Hi everyone

Well 2014 is over, and a new year begins; 2015! 2014 was overall a kinda bad year for me, and at midnight I toasted it a "fond" farewell.

Let's hope this year will be a good one!

Happy New Year!

Hey Lizzie I got a questions for you since Kayla said I should ask you as these sort of things, from what Kayla said, are sort of important to you?

I'm working on the Bit Beast for Kayla's Beyblade version of her male Winks Club character and I am wanting to give him Viktor's Bit Beast name, Volya. This is partly because the name hasn't quite worked for Viktor's Bit Beast since I made it a Crow and Volya vaguely hints as a private joke amongst us in the know as a link to the character and his Winks version being related to Valtor.

A question that could possibly earn my fifth or sixth Marshell style slap. Is there enough space somewhere on the image that I use that has the outdoor house on it for a small view of the mountains in the background?

Hey Lizzie, I sent you an email since there's a strong possibility both Kayla and I will be gone or at least away most of the day. Waits for my next Marshell slap.
