Anonymous asked: Did you lose friends in Hollywood when you decided to go public as a couple?

Watson:  Real friends, no.  Fake friends, I’m sure we did.

Holmes:  It is sometimes difficult in Hollywood to know who is your friend and who isn’t.

Watson:  Only sometimes?

Holmes:  Political correctness creates a false dichotomy.  Many fear for their own careers and images, so none dare speak out against us publicly because it would be considered bad press to do so.  Yet there are plenty who disapprove and even felt threatened by us.

Watson:  It hasn’t always been easy.  But there’s been enough genuine support to make it bearable.  And of course, we have each other, which is more than a lot of people can say.

Holmes:  As far as knowing who one’s friends really are, to be quite frank, I trust no one but John.

Watson:  You shouldn’t.  I’d sell you out for a pint of ice cream.

Holmes:  I hope you’d at least hold out for one of the more expensive varieties.

Watson:  Naturally.

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.
