Meme time!!!!

Stole it from tarklovishki, who in turn took it from earlgreytea68.

Put a number in the comments and I’ll answer accordingly.

The mission for those of us who answer the questions, should we accept it, is to stay positive about our writing and ourselves, but to also be fair about our shortcomings.

1. Of the fic you’ve written, of which are you most proud?
2. Favourite tense
3. Favourite POV
4. What are some themes you love writing about?
5. What inspires you to write?
6. Thoughts on critique
7. Create a character on the spot... NOW!
8. Is there a character you love writing for the most? The least? Why?
9. A passage from a WIP
10. What are your strengths in writing?
11. What are your weaknesses in writing?
12. Anything else that you want to know... (otherwise known as Fill in the Blank)

I'll cross out the questions I've answered - I answer them in the comment section below, so be sure to check it out :)

New theme :)

Ok so I grew tired of my old theme, which has been around for, like, 4 years or so, and I decided to give my LJ a small retouch. Do you like it? :) I still have to put my Sherlock fics in the Master Fic Index, and I'll think about improving the way I announce new stories. I think right the entries are not clear enough.

Tricks of the Mind, chapters 12-14 + Epilogue = I HAVE FINISHED!

So I have finished the fic and I miss writing it already.

Title
: Tricks of the Mind, chapters 12-14 + Epilogue
STATUS: COMPLETE!!!
Summary of what has happened: John, after a series of disturbing events, is coming to terms with his sexuality; however, Sherlock seems to be eager to destroy his newly regained balance. Or is he? John starts to wonder whether there's more to it than just what his mind suggests. Especially as Sherlock starts to behave in a weird way... In the end John makes up his mind, which leads to even more emotional turmoil, people get killed and John is almost too late, but all ends well.
Pairing: John/Sherlock, more or less one-sided
POV: John's as for now
Genre: Romance + occasional Humour + Angst + Hurt/Comfort...
Rating: M for all the fic because of what happens at the beginning (masturbation and not really graphic sex, just to be on the safe side) and there are swear words, though there is no sex as such
Word count: 1000-ish for chapter 12, 4300-ish for chapter 13, 2100-ish for chapter 13, 850 for chapter 14 and 244 for the Epilogue; the whole story is almost 24k words long!
SPOILERS for episode 3 season 1 and episode 1 season 2 :)

Tricks of the Mind, chapters 8-11

I profited a bit from the long weekend in Poland.

Title
: Tricks of the Mind, chapters 8-11
Summary of what has happened: John, after a series of disturbing events, is coming to terms with his sexuality; however, Sherlock seems to be eager to destroy his newly regained balance. Or is he? John starts to wonder whether there's more to it than just what his mind suggests. Especially as Sherlock starts to behave in a weird way...
Pairing: John/Sherlock, more or less one-sided as for now
POV: John's as for now
Genre: Romance/Humor with occasional darker parts (come on we're all human), actually it has turned out darker than I expected
Rating: M for all the fic, but most of the chapters are K or T because of a few swear words; this one is relatively safe
Word count: 1400-ish for chapter 8, 1200-ish for chapter 9, 2100-ish for chapter 10, 2500 for chapter 11; the whole story will probably be around 21k long.
SPOILERS for episode 3 season 1, so if you haven't seen it yet, you might want to read this chapter when you have :)

Enjoy! And please comment - I've been working on Chapter 11 since I started writing the fic, so it's important for me to know what worked and what didn't!
