Anonymous said: If you weren't actors, what would you both be doing?

Watson:  When I was a kid, I always wanted to be a doctor.

Holmes:  You’d make a good doctor.

Watson:  What makes you think so?

Holmes:  You’re a caretaker.  It’s in your nature.

Watson:  I know what you’d be doing.  Fighting crime.

Holmes:  Not necessarily.  Puzzles, mysteries, challenges.  That’s what draws me, and one finds those things in many places.  I can’t imagine myself among those whose job it is to fight crime.  I’d have to set myself up as some sort of free agent.

Watson:  Well, you can’t swing a dead cat these days without hitting a show on telly about somebody solving crime with their special expertise.  Perhaps we could solve crime with our acting prowess.

Holmes: How would that work?

Watson:  I don’t know.  Jessica Fletcher managed it, somehow.

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.
