Background Check

Background Check

By kgreen20





Lestrade has to conduct a thorough background check on Dr. John Watson before he can allow him to help Sherlock solve crimes. In the process, he has a discussion with one of John’s ex-army friends, and what he learns about the retired army doctor’s history is most enlightening!

Author’s Notes: This story is based in part on the articles that are posted on wellingtongoose’s tumblr and LiveJournal articles, and partly on the history that BlueSkye12 has given John Watson in her stories. As a result, in my story, poor John has had an awfully rough time of it before meeting Sherlock! =) (Incidentally, many thanks to BlueSkye12 and to Jolie Black for beta-reading my story!)

I’m basing the years and John’s age on his CV, which is shown in part on the 1st-season episode, “The Blind Banker,” and which is explained in depth on wellingtongoose’s Web sites. I am assuming that John was 18 when he passed his A-levels and first enrolled in college in 1999. Also, he says during a flashback sequence in “The Sign of Three” that he was in Afghanistan for three years, so he could not have been in his mid-30s when he first met Sherlock.

Disclaimer: Sherlock, John, Murray, and Lestrade do not belong to me, but to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and to the talented team of Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss (who also own the rights to Sergeant Sally Donovan).

God Rest You, Dr. Watson

God Rest You, Dr. Watson

By kgreen20




On the day after Christmas, John sprains his ankle on his way home with the groceries. How does he deal with an impatient Sherlock who wants him to accompany the detective on a case? Set on the day after the Christmas party in the second-season episode, “A Scandal in Belgravia.” One-shot.

Author’s Note: This story was written for the secret Santa fanfiction exchange on the BBC Sherlock fan forum. My prompts are as follows: Mycroft, Violin, Husky, Christmas tree, and London. And/or this object: Christmas tree on Times Square. Merry Christmas, silverblaze! This story is for you. And thanks to ukaunz on the forum, for beta-reading my story!

Answer for question 4574.

As most are already aware, Star Wars: The Force Awakens just opened. If you've seen it, what were your thoughts on it? What were your favorite moments, and what could have been done better? If you have no interest in this Star Wars movie, what current movie(s) would you recommend instead?
Since I haven't seen it yet, I really can't comment on it. But I think it's neat that they've brought back the old stars from the original Star Wars trilogy. It'll be interesting to see how they've been living in the years since the destruction of the Empire.

Have You Ever Thought About What Jesus Did, 2,000 Years Ago?

By kgreen20

I mean, when Jesus came into the world as a newborn baby to become our Savior. Can you imagine what a comedown it was for Him to become a human being? I mean, it was one heck of a comedown! Think about it. For eternity past, He has ruled Heaven, and more recently, the universe. He made the universe, and He has kept it running ever since. He made our planet and everything on it. And he made us. He also created the angels, and they have all worshipped Him ever since. He was all-powerful and all-knowing; there was nothing He could not do and nothing He did not know.

Who Are the 10 Virgins?

Who Are the 10 Virgins?

By kgreen20

This is a legitimate question. Who are the 10 virgins—the Church? The Tribulation saints? Or who? I’ve noticed that so many watchers insist that the Church is a collection of virgins who must keep their lamps lit or else miss out on the Rapture. But are we, truly?

John and Mycroft’s Discussion

John and Mycroft’s Discussion

By kgreen20

In this BBC Sherlock story, Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock's older brother, wants Dr. John Watson to let go of his stubbornness about accepting help. This little one-shot is based on Mycroft’s portrayal in Richefic’s stories, “The Consequences of Caring,” “Partners in Crime,” and “Hope for Heroes.”

Author’s Note: This is my first Sherlock fanfiction story, so any feedback will be welcome! My thanks goes to Yitzock at the BBC Sherlock Fan Forum and AO3 (also known as MewWolf5 at Fanfiction.net) for beta-reading my story.

Disclaimer: Sherlock, John, and Mycroft are not my property, but that of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and of the talented co-creators/writers, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss.

For Someone Besides Himself

For Someone Besides Himself

By kgreen20

What happened to the creatures in Chapter 11: “Aslan is Nearer,” that the White Witch turned into stone statues when she discovered that Father Christmas had given them the means to celebrate? C.S. Lewis never explained in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, but I’d like to think that Aslan found out about it and did something. This little one-shot, which is set in Chapter 17: “The Hunting of the White Stag,” explains how that could have happened. (I want to thank my beta-reader, dreamflower02, for her help in improving this story!)

Disclaimer: Aslan, the Pevensie children, and the creatures of Narnia are not my creation, but C.S. Lewis’s.

An Elf?

An Elf?

By kgreen20


In Chapter 2: “The Shadow of the Past,” of The Fellowship of the Ring, it says, “He [Sam] believed he had once seen an elf in the woods, and still hoped to see more one day.” But when and where does that happen? In this pre-Quest double drabble, Sam sees an elf while taking a walk.
