Title: The Measure of Goodness, ch. 3 - Ghosts in the Gaps
Fandom: BBC Sherlock, Lie to Me
Rating: R
Pairings: Eventual John/Sherlock, implied one-sided Moriarty/Moran.
Contents: Violence, references to and depictions of suicide

Summary: "Let me be clear. I understand very little, least of all the people closest to me." — Cal Lightman

Moriarty was a diabolically elegant puzzle, but Sebastian Moran is a maddening and contradictory enigma. Not even Mycroft Holmes has any idea of who Moran really is or what he truly wants—or just how far he will go to carry out Moriarty’s final orders.

Then, during the investigation of a bizarre and brutal murder, Sherlock crosses paths with another unconventional genius who may be able to help him get to the truth about Moran. Unfortunately, Cal Lightman also holds the key to another truth, and for once in his life Sherlock Holmes finds there are some things he would give anything not to know.

Notes: Even though this is a crossover with “Lie to Me,” detailed knowledge of that fandom won't be necessary. I simply could not pass up the idea of Sherlock Holmes squaring off against Cal Lightman. Also, many, many thanks to aishuu, incandescens, and mei. This would not be possible without your help and support.

Chapter Three: Lestrade returns to Baker Street, and what he finds is not at all what he expected.

There were gaps in the story, and there were ghosts in the gaps.Collapse )

Greg Lestrade had his pride, he did, and that morning he had decided there was no way in hell he was going to look as low as he truly felt when he went in to hear the inevitable news that his six weeks of unpaid suspension was turning into something a bit more permanent.Collapse )

Characters: Castiel, Kali, Death
Rating/Warning: PG-13
Word Count: c. 10,800
Notes: This was written for the wonderful picture serenada_art did for the 2011 spn_reversebang. The picture piqued my curiosity, making me wonder just what would make those three characters come together. Many thanks to alwaysamyfic for a stellar beta-reading job. As always, thank you aishuu and incandescens, for your help along the way.

Summary: Castiel made a promise to Dean after returning the souls to Purgatory, but actually keeping that promise will be far more complicated than he ever could have imagined.


I will redeem myself to you.Collapse )

Fic title: Apocrypha
Artist name: zestyzorra
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: John/Mary, but the story is primarily gen.
Rating: R
Word count: ~117,000
Warnings: Graphic violence and disturbing imagery, including torture; child abuse; character death as depicted or mentioned in canon; spoilers through the end of S6.

Summary: This is a story that takes place before and between the lines of the Winchester Gospels. It starts in a hospital in Sioux Falls and with a landmine in Vietnam. It starts when two people inexplicably fall in love on the eve of the Great Depression and when a man kills himself at a California reservoir. It starts with a phone call from a man who knows too much, and with a memory of a murder that never happened.

This is the story of how John Winchester learned the truth, piece by shattered piece, and how that truth did not set him free.
