samati said: John and Sherlock: What would you have done if coming out as a couple had not been taken so well?

Holmes:  I’m not sure one could characterize the reaction to our unmasking as “taken so well.”

Watson:  Come on, Sherlock, it could have been so much worse.

Holmes:  The fact that it could have been worse does not excuse some of the reactions we did encounter.

Watson:  What would we have done?  Dealt with it, I suppose.

Holmes:  I had a plan.

Watson:  You had a plan?

Holmes:  A brilliant plan.

Watson:  Why am I just now hearing about this brilliant plan?

Holmes:  I never had the need to implement it.

Watson:  Can you hear that little edge of disappointment in his voice?  That he never got to show off his brilliant plan?  Come on, astonish us.

Holmes:  No.

Watson:  Don’t be a git.

Holmes:  No, I’m not telling you now.

Watson:  Fine, I don’t care, anyway.

Holmes:  All I’ll say is that it involved telemark skiing.

Watson:  You don’t ski.

Holmes:  I could ski. 

Watson:  You don’t, though.

Holmes:  Telemark skiing, the Staten Island Ferry and a bottle of single-malt Scotch.  Just a few of the elements of my brilliant plan.

Watson:  You are just making this up now.

Holmes:  I am offended that you doubt the existence of my plan.

Watson:  Go stand in the corner and face the wall.

Who is the MadLori?

I'm Lori. I'm 40, a scientist and a freelance writer). Fanfiction is my drug of choice. This is where I dump all my obsessive fannishness along with whatever else strikes me. At the moment the dominant fandom is Sherlock. That can change at anytime. Be warned. Eye protection should be worn in this area.

I am also a crafter and I have an Etsy store.

You're probably after fic. My fic can be found here at AO3 or here at LJ. The LJ post is more complete for now. Moving fic over to AO3 is a pain in my hinder. I also have some stuff at under MadLori as well.

I have published one novel, a gay romantic thriller, under my pseudonym. You can buy it here or at Amazon.
