Anonymous said: You’ve both made no secret of the fact that you are fans of the others’ acting. John, what type of role would you like to see Sherlock tackle and vice versa? Are there “dream roles” perhaps known only to you both that you’d like to put out there?

Watson:  Well, I still have a little fantasy of seeing Sherlock in a nice Regency drama.  For my own reasons.

Holmes:  Oh, good Lord.

Watson:  But he wouldn’t want that.  What I’d love is to see him do something funny.  He’s never had a comic role, and he’s really quite funny.

Holmes:  I’m not funny at all.

Watson:  See?  He’s hilarious!

Holmes:  You are delusional, John.

Watson:  He has snappy timing and he’d be fantastic in something sharp and talky with intelligent humor.  I would love that.

Holmes:  I’ll take that under advisement.

Watson:  What about you?

Holmes:  I would enjoy seeing John play a villain.  A master thief, perhaps.  Cary Grant in “To Catch a Thief.”  I think he’d carry that off rather well.

Watson:  You just like me in black turtlenecks.

Holmes:  No comment.

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.
