Anonymous said: What are each of your dream roles? What's a role you would never want to play?

Watson:  (blushes)

Holmes:  (smiling)  No, go on.  Tell the nice lady.

Watson:  It’s embarrassing.

Holmes:  If you don’t, I will.

Watson:  Oh, all right!  I’ve always wanted to play a superhero.  Any superhero.  Sadly, that’s not looking too likely these days.

Holmes:  Why on earth not?

Watson:  I’m a bit long in the tooth for the tights, Sherlock.

Holmes:  Nonsense.  Robert was older than you when he played Iron Man the first time.

Watson:  I’m too short.

Holmes:  See above, re: Robert.  

Watson:  As for never, well — if I never play a mild-mannered nonthreatening man in a romantic comedy again, I’ll die happy.

Holmes:  I’ve always wanted to play a famous scientist in a biopic.

Watson:  Which one?

Holmes:  Oh, I don’t know.  So many scientists deserve the biopic treatment.  Tesla, perhaps.  He is fascinating.

Watson:  I bet I can guess what role you’d never want.

Holmes:  Yes, I imagine you can.

Watson:  You see, Sherlock is offered parts in period dramas at least once a month and he turns them all down.

Holmes:  I don’t know why they keep asking.

Watson:  Have you looked in the mirror lately?  You absolutely scream “historical,” Sherlock.  You were born to wear breeches and powdered wigs.

Holmes:  I’ll pass, thanks.

Watson:  Pity.  I rather like those period costumes.  Oh, bugger - I just had a vision of you playing Valmont in a remake of “Dangerous Liaisons.”  I think I’m going to pass out.

Holmes:  I never said I wouldn’t wear the clothes for you.  Just as long as I’m not being a) paid or b) filmed.

Watson:  Anyone got a paper bag I can breathe into?

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.
