Pimping out the sherlock_remix challenge which is running again this year (and this time I didn’t miss signups yay!). Signup post is at the link and open until Feb 16th, so 6 more days to get in there if you’re interested.
I love the challenge of remixing fics (and should add I have blanket permission for remixing my fanworks, with a few stipulations, on my LJ masterlist too). I think more than anything I can’t wait to see what fic of mine my remixer picks to remix, but I’m sure remixing someone else’s fic will be equally as exciting.

i’m still not sure that this was a good idea.
Subtly awesome combo of the Dr Horrible song with Sherlock scenes here.
A character study of Molly Hooper. Her thoughts and her feelings for Sherlock.
“He was a great guy. Brilliant. We had the same group of friends. We had known each other a long time. I’m not some hopeless romantic. I’ve never allowed myself to be that way. But once I felt - even for a moment - what I felt with you… You ruined me. I didn’t want to settle for less.”
I edited this a couple of weeks ago when I was feeling terribly sentimental and I didn’t want to upload it then. Today I found it again and since I didn’t have time to edit the newest “Nikon Ad” I thought I’d share at least this video with you in the hope that some of you might like it.
Sherlolly.com has put up a section for meta and essays. If anyone has anything they would like up on the site, please contact me and we’ll put it up. It can be about Sherlolly or Sherlock and Molly themselves or even just about Sherlock in general. Just if there’s something you’d like other…

Day 9 Sherlolly week - S3 speculation
What do you think will happen in S3 (as far as their relationship goes)?
I’m hoping Molly did in fact play a major part in saving Sherlock, though I’m doubting he stayed at hers and wondering if she knows much about the why in actual fact. I think Molly staying in partial contact (anon sms etc) makes most sense and Sherlock having gotten attached to her as more of a friend throughout but probably equally as unwilling to admit it as he used to be for John. I like the idea of S3 being for Sherlock and Molly kind of what it was for S1 Sherlock and John, where Molly gets involved more. I really hope we see her around 221b and not just at Bart’s (they do say they’re tired of the morgue set). John was already willing to get Molly involved in ASiB, and depending on John’s acceptance of the returned Sherlock, maybe she will get dragged into cases?
P.S. I’ve got two prompts from Day 6 of my Sherlolly prompt me 221b’s post that I am writing (as well as working on Turn Around). Didn’t get any prompts for Day 7 or 8 so far, so will pick ones from prompt meme for those days. Still today to get in Day 9’s prompts if anyone else does want a 221b ficlet.
Day 8 of Sherlolly week - I kind of skipped over day 7, not sure I have headcanon so much because I love to play about with different versions of them in fic - and I am reblogging a gif for favourite screencap.
OK, it’s sort cheating there but in the top gif from “The Great Games’ that is the moment that’s my favourite and would be hard to capture in 1 screencap. That he look so surprised he’s hurt her by telling what he thinks is the helpful truth about Jim from IT. Makes my heart wibble every time.
VID REC: My current favourite Sherlock/Molly vid “The Woman That Counted” by Nyah86Production. The orchestral haunting song is perfect for an angsty post-TRF vid (so beware S2 spoilers) and is very well edited to fit the vid length - I adore the full song too. I’m a bit sick of vids with certain voiceovers of S2 Sherlock/Molly interactions but this one does it so well I am pleased it uses that, makes for poignant emphasis with them.
Reblogging this rec for Day 6 of Sherlolly Week: Favourite fanvid. It’s not so much telling another story like other fanvids do but this feels like a retelling of the episode events from a slightly different view. It never fails to give me S/M TRF feels - it really makes me feel like Sherlock is experiencing a revelation regarding Molly there, especially the highlighting of the sound of his a voice alone with alternative visuals in the latter voiceover when he tells her she counts.
2 x Day 5 prompt fills
2 x Day 5 prompt fills and yet again I only got a 221b 50% ratio - the 2nd one simply could not be done right in that few words.
Here be the 2 x filled prompts from Day 5 for my Sherlolly week prompt me 221b’s.
For tygermama “Sherlock discovers there’s something that Molly is incredibly better than him at. He’s torn between pissy and impressed.” - Only Human (221 words)
For mayacakaia “Molly’s has a habit of leaving things (yr choice) around the flat like Sherlock leaves body parts around. (established Sherlolly)” - Besides The Point (831 words)
Currently no new prompts for today (which I’d write tomorrow) and if that happens I’ll just pick something from the Sherlock/Molly prompt meme. :)
2 x Day 4 prompt fills
I sat down to write 2 x 221b ficlet at 5.30 and like 4hours later (with a break for dins of course) I come to posting 1 x 221b and 1 x 3770 words oneshot fic. I’m not sure anyone is going to complain, unless they’re not good (and they’re not betaed so that could be). We shall see. Anyhow, here be the 2 x filled prompts from Day 4 for my Sherlolly week prompt me 221b’s.
For potemkinx “Sherlock finds Molly reading fanfics on the internet,fandom of your choice.” - A Matter Of Time And Space (221 words)
For hihiyas “Molly’s mum interrogating Sherlock and demanding grandbabies? Would be cute if this happens and they’re not together. Yet.” - The Wise Woman (3770 words)
Sherlolly week - prompt me for 221b’s
In honour of Sherlolly week + me needing to get back into the swing of writing this pairing again too, I am taking prompts.
Every day for the rest of Sherlolly week I will pick a couple prompts at random left on this post to write a 221B format ficlet about.
Reblogging because this offer still stands.
I’m about to post the first two prompt fills for day 4 (hihiyas and potemkinx) and there’s no new prompts left to fill today so far, so if you want to prompt me you’ve currently got an excellent chance of getting it filled when I pick my next two to do from day 5 and I’ll get on two random prompts tomorrow morning if there are any more…
I was looking through Aithine’s “A Study In Pink” screencaps gallery when I noticed in the faux slow mo that is every few seconds of caps Sherlock’s reaction to the coffee Molly makes for him that she brings to the lab he’s in when first meeting John.A small thing I’ve never noticed but intrigued me.
As he faces away from everyone he takes a mouthful, looks back to the cup and makes a face as he swallows. Maybe he doesn’t really like the taste of coffee and was accepting it to get round her actual asking him out he’d deflected with his misunderstanding? Maybe it’s too hot? It seems more like a grimace of ‘eugh, that’s awful coffee’ and yet he says nothing of it. Molly is still in the room, it would seem natural if he disliked it to mention it to avoid any more in the future unless this is the rarity of him in fact being polite. He was happy a moment before to point out her since removed lipstick as something that was working for her, in a truthful statement that is not the best delivered by imaginably John’s standards (so he’s not worried about showing John his bluntness) but not to disparage what seems to be a horrible drink and drinks no more of it once she leaves the room.
Day 4 of Sherlolly week: Why do I ship Sherlock/Molly?
Another ramble by me in aid of Sherlolly week. I hope it makes sense, but not feeling at all well today so wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t. You are forewarned.
…Because though I also accept and enjoy the idea of aromantic/asexual Sherlock, I like to believe Sherlock is despite his front is capable of romantic love. The obvious choice to pair him with is for many John and I do read John/Sherlock from time to time, but I am picky on how I like my pairing fic and there’s a lot that pairing to trawl through to find the stories I personally find emotionally satisfying - perhaps for that reason that pairing never clicked for me. I don’t so much have that issue with Sherlock/Molly, I find so many fics that I can get into and it became my Sherlock OTP.
…Because Molly as Sherlock’s love interest is appealing because she is not the obvious choice. I have a habit of enjoying underdog ships/rare pairings instead of main character 1 with next main character 2 as somehow too obvious for me, and generally het too which feels a bit of an underdog in fandom often enough thesedays. No surprise really I preferred Sherlock/Molly. I don’t always want the main partners/friends to be more and I don’t think I’d want Sherlock/John in this canon. I probably wouldn’t want Sherlock/Molly canon either, as ambiguity can be nicer for not sinking any ships and leaving blanks to fill in, but I think what this boils down to is I like being able to take Sherlock & John scenes which make up the majority of the episodes at face value as a deep friendship and still have squee over a theoretical ship with the precious few Sherlock & Molly scenes as a highlight that doesn’t overwhelm my viewing of the show.
…Because part of the interest for me is that her friendship with Sherlock shares many traits with his and John’s. John has got to a certain place with Sherlock much quicker than her, where Sherlock depends and recognises him as his friend but to me it seems Molly has that potential too, it’s just happening at a slower pace and to watch that (or indeed read/write that) is more satisfying for me because I really enjoy slowly developing relationships, friends to more and there’s so much to work with on that theme for this pairing.
…Because the idea of Sherlock being equally oblivious to his own feelings about Molly, whether they be friendship or more, or being out of his element trying to handle them once they are known is tantalizing to read. Sherlock tends to be the empowered one in scenes with most characters and I like the idea of changing the power dynamics there by reversing that with Molly, having her overcome her crush and be strong despite it or because of it, able to teach him something or surprise him as she has done at a few points in canon.
Maybe the main reason is I want to see Molly’s feelings reciprocated, I want the lovely personage of Molly to be happy, I want to see the pathology geek get the other massive multidisciplinary genius geek. Is this self-identification? Partly, but I actually don’t much identify with Molly even as I am female and shy and have an interest in morbid things. Usually it’s the geek gets the girl trope (with the girl loving him despite his geekiness) but two just as odd people, by normal social standards of interests, being well suited (and liking each other for their geekiness) sounds great to me for pairing, hence my finding Sherlock/Molly awesome.
I don’t think there’s a wellingtongoose meta so far I have not enjoyed and found informative. This one is short but very interesting for writing university set Sherlock fic if you subscribe to idea he was an Oxbridge student.
As an added aside, if people need help with Cambridge set stuff I might be able to help there as as a person living in the area, who is not a grad of the uni there but certainly knows numerous people who are (kind of unavoidable in Cambridge).
