shiverelectric said: If you could change anything about the other, what would it be? And what about the other would you never change?

Watson:  Oh God.  Are you serious?  

Holmes:  I believe that’s what’s referred to as a “loaded question.”

Watson:  I would make him shorter.

Holmes:  Shorter?

Watson:  It is completely unnecessary for you to be so bloody tall.

Holmes:  I am not excessively tall.  I’m just over six feet.

Watson:  Tall enough.

Holmes:  In that case, I would make you taller.

Watson:  Hey!

Holmes:  Actually…no, that’s incorrect.  I wouldn’t want you to be taller.

Watson:  Let’s declare any and all physical characteristics out of bounds.

Holmes:  Because changes to our personality are somehow less disconcerting?  At least our physical forms are more or less the result of genetics.

Watson:  If I could change one thing, it would be that you’d have a better relationship with your family.  It makes me sad that you don’t.  And one thing that I would never change is…well, whatever wires that got crossed in your head and made you think that being with me was a good idea.

Holmes:  If I could change one thing it would be that you would never again make a self-deprecating comment like the one you just made.  And I would never change…(sighs).  Your hair.

Watson:  My hair?

Holmes:  What shall I say instead, John?  That I’d never change anything about you?  Because that’s the truth.  But that sounds too  much like a greeting card so I shall say that I’d never change your hair and be done with it.

Watson:  …

Holmes:  What?  Why are you staring at my hair?

Watson:  Have you ever thought of going ginger?  It’d look good on you.

Holmes:  Next question, please.

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 ff.net under MadLori as well.

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