Note: Massive thanks to [livejournal.com profile] drinkingcocoa, who is such an amazing beta that she can give incredibly useful feedback on a fic for a fandom she isn’t even in! Thanks also to readers for your patience. I’ve been able to carve out some writing time, and I hope to be able to update this fic regularly again. <3

Summary: Sherlock didn't leave John and Mary's wedding alone.
Rating: Explicit

Length: 5500 words
Note: Written for [livejournal.com profile] drinkingcocoa for her birthday last month. I sent her a draft a couple of weeks ago and invited her to suggest any changes she wanted that would make this fic exactly what she wants to read. So she basically betad her own gift fic! I hope it turned out to be just what she wanted. Happy Birthday to a woman who is a wonderful presence in this fandom! I adore her not only for her fantastic work as a beta, but also for her deeply thoughtful work on the Three Patch Podcast and her continual efforts to make sure everyone around her feels welcomed and appreciated. Everywhere she is in fandom, she brings a soothing presence and a pervasive joy for the show and the ways that fans celebrate and create around it. Happy, Happy Birthday, Cocoa!

LMH cover

Ten years ago yesterday, I started posting my first ever Harry/Draco fic, Left My Heart.
(If you’re interested: my web site | Skyehawke | AO3)


I started writing it on a whim, without reading a lot in the fandom (as is typical for me), and later learned that I’d done all the things HP fanfic writers weren’t supposed to do: make the boys adults (this was just after book 5), set the fic in the US, write lots of OCs, show the boys having sex with OCs before finally getting them together, and so on. But I was new in that fandom and I didn’t know the rules, and all I really wanted to do was write my story. So I posted chapters to my LJ and thought just my friends would read it. Quite a lot of people read it, in the end, and many of them even enjoyed it. Amazingly enough, ten years later, I still get comments on it.

So Happy Birthday, LMH! And may that Harry and Draco live happily ever after. :-)

Two recent comments on A Cure for Boredom:

→ "I'm pretty new to the Sherlock/Johnlock thing and a lot of fics I find Sherlock to be somewhat.... out of character. Sometimes a little, sometimes a whole wonking heck of a lot. I think this is the best characterized Sherlock I've ever seen. I love it."

→ "While this was certainly really hot, the characters, for me, felt OOC. I still liked reading it. But it could've been anyone, really."

And two on Just a Kiss:

→ "Ahh so brilliant!! This is definitely one of my all time favourite fics, it's just so awesome and very in character."

→ "by the end your John was an out of character asshole and there's no two ways about it. Normally I don't bother saying anything if I don't like something I've tried to read, but this was just ridiculous. I don't know why people even bother to write in fandoms if they're going to turn the main characters into out of character wankers who deserve to be slapped with sexual harassment suits. [...] at the very least for those of us who care about characterization MARK YOU WORK AS CONTAINING CHARACTERS WHO ARE BEHAVING OUT OF CHARACTER!"


I've talked about this before in various venues, but it really amazes me how widely people's ideas about characterization in fanfic can vary. What is completely OOC to one person can be perfectly IC to another. How can that happen when we all watch the same show? Assuming that most* people who write fanfic are actually writing the versions of the characters that are in their heads and are convinced that their version is as in-character as they can possibly make it, why is there so much variation?

My opinions, let me show you them )
