Sherlock fic rec  
I've been reading post-Reichenbach Falls fic for the last week now, and of everything I've read so far, this one - The Inexactitude of Loss by phantomjam...well, it eclipses everything else. It's John, struggling to deal with the fallout of being left behind. And it hurts. Go. Read. Enjoy.
While I was reading it, this song The Day You Went Away by Wendy Matthews came on the radio. It fitted so well.

Thanks for the rec! I'll definitely have a read of that one. I'm trying to write a story myself atm so I'm not reading an awful lot. I'm very aware that it'll be hard to avoid looking like a copycat, the amount of post-RF fic there is out there. You're bound to find a few fics that follow similar routes. I might have to put my post-RF on hold for now and work on the other idea I have.

There certainly is an abundance of post-RF fic about. I've yet to read two that seem similar, though; so many different theories etc! I'm loving it. I do hope you continue with yours.

*nods* I'm loving that Sherlock has captured so many people's imaginations in so many ways. It's great to be caught up in all the excitement of such an active fandom. Oh! That's good that you feel they are all different. The reason I put mine on hold and have stopped reading (for the moment) is that I saw one that did follow almost exactly the storyline I had written 2,000(!) words of. I sighed and went back to the drawing board. I've taken it down another route now and I'm hoping it'll be different from other stories. I also have an idea for a story set during Hounds of Baskerville.

I guess we're all limited by the number of different scenarios there could be, but every story I've read so far explores them in a slightly different way or from a different point of view. And they'll all be jossed by S3 anyway! *g*
It is wonderful, though, being part of a fandom that's still so vibrant and alive. I've only once before been involved in something that was relatively recent (the Boosh!) as most of my fandoms are fairly ancient.
