Ladies of Sherlock “Once Upon A Time” Challenge
The doctor’s wife must be a little bit bored by now.
Mary Watson saw a chance to do something different with her life when her husband, Dr John H Watson, joined the army in 1914.
They are the law. Sheriff Donovan is not here for bullshit. Try to start something in her town, and you will be dealt with efficiently, ruthlessly and totally within the bounds of the law. And, Moran who? Deputy Anthea is one of the fastest draws and deadliest shots in the West. Screw with them at your own peril.
Due to circumstances in my real life, there will be no July challenge for the Ladies of Sherlock.
The current challenge will run until Monday and we’ll return in August with a new prompt.

My entry for June Challenge for Ladies of Sherlock: Once Upon a Time

The woman slid into the seat next to Sally Donovan’s, the raw silk of her dress whispering against the chair’s upholstery. For several minutes, Mary Morstan gazed dispassionately down on the stage, listening to a soprano twitter in garbled Italian. She gave no acknowledgment that she’d arrived unannounced and uninvited.
Nerves pricked at the back of Sally’s neck, but she schooled her expression into one of outer calm. Slowly. she glanced around to make sure her companions for the evening had not noticed their box’s latest addition before returning her attention to the stage. When a gloved hand slid a piece of paper into her fingers, Sally casually brought it up into her lap. Though she retained her outer calm, she could not bring herself to delay unrolling the vellum that Mary had so recently given her. though she had to squint to make out the words in the dim lighting.
A person’s name and what appeared to be tomorrow’s timetable for train service to York. Nothing else.
Sally looked at Mary out of the corner of her eye, but the other woman was still staring at the Prima Donna. who’d just hit a glass-shattering note to the cringing dismay of everyone. But Sally couldn’t be bothered to react to spectacle or ringing eardrums. Instead, she carefully refolded her instructions and tucked them into her reticule.
As she gazed out over the full house of shadowy faces, Sally could do nothing to tamp down a small smile of anticipation and triumph.
I don’t see this as a problem. But just to let you know: There is only four days left in the challenge.
June Challenge : Once upon a Time - Matching Mr.Flawed (Victorian!Sherlolly)
He had left the clues everywhere for half a year hoping it would get things done without him saying the you-know-what.
Until they went out for a date, the first in thirteen days. She kept waiting for the whole day while he lost count of the pep talks he had given himself (181 after they walked out of Angelo’s and unfortunately still counting).
The two arrived at her doorsteps, staring at each other. Her eyes were broken with disappointment and he finally threw his cowardice in the wind. “Wouldyoumarryme?”
"What? Say it again, William Sherlock Scott Holmes, Say it again like you mean it!"
"You’re a woman whom I would never fully understand but shall always truly appreciate. I can never put into words what I find the most admirable in you because you keep surprising me with more. I’m, on the contrary, as flawed as you’re perfect. Yet, you never leave me. I don’t like being wrong and the biggest mistake I would ever make is letting you go."
"I see a good man in you, flawed but good. And I’m NOT perfect."
"You’re my very own Little Miss Perfect, marry me, would you?"
She took him by his blue scarf and led him inside.
Sherlock didn’t return to 221B until the following morning.
Sherlock’s Pride and Molly’s Prejudice 2 (end)
The happy ending and cute chibi John and Mary is perfect for me :D
Someday I’d be able to draw beautiful background, master the art of coloring and draw consistent looking characters. But in the mean time, I’m quite happy with the result :D
Have a lovey dovey romance everyone :D
Sherlock’s Pride and Molly’s Prejudice
Molly: “You, Mr. Holmes, is vanity in every sense of the way. You sneer, you mock, and you think every one is beneath you.”
Sherlock: “You are actually quite right Miss Hooper. That’s the first meaningful remark you have made so far this night. Bravo”
Molly: “You think you’re worth more than others just because you’re of nobility and wealth. And don’t think I didn’t see the way you look at the people here Mr. Holmes. Your face may be striking handsome and we are just some humble folks, but you are rotten to your core.”
Sherlock: “I care not of physical beauty Miss Hooper, I was merely taking simple observation of human aesthetic. Although I would like to pinpoint your lack of knowledge for socially acceptable female preening. That dress is far too big for you. Not that I care of course, but I can see that you do and you’ve failed, “
Molly: “I…. I swear to God there will not be a day that I think fondly of you Mr. Holmes! I despise you like I despise stale air!
Sherlock: “And I, to you.”
Of course we all know what happens in the end :D
My take on Sherlolly’s Pride and Prejudice.
In the end they kiss, they love and eat each other’s hat :D
Sorry for the roughness, I need some quick sherlolly lovin in between new job jitter.
