I've spent hours on this when I should've been doing other things--not sure why, or if it merited the attention. I meant it to be a little less silly and a little more shippy, but there you go. Posting it in journals only for now, to meet the challenge deadline; I need to britpick some of the idiom before I post to AO3.

Title: Swim Until You Can't See Land
Fandom: Rivers of London
Rating: G
Characters: Thomas Nightingale, Dr. Walid (pre-series)
Spoilers: none for the novels
Warnings: discussion of suicide
Word count: ~4.2K
Disclaimer: not mine, no profit

nb: This was written for the [ profile] hc_bingo February amnesty challenge. The challenge was to write one fic using three prompts and a wildcard. My prompts were: hypothermia, hallucinations, loss of identity and (as the wild card), PTSD. Note that loss of identity here is more like losing one identity and gaining a new one.
nb: also using it for the "bed-sharing" square on my [community profile] trope_bingo card.
nb: title from the Frightened Rabbit song of the same name. Scottish band in honor of Dr. Walid.

Summary: It always amused Abdul that he, who so disdained flowery language, could begin the story of his greatest friendship with the phrase, “it was a dark and stormy night.”

This is a belated birthday fic for [personal profile] thirdbird--happy birthday, bb! I really wanted to write Cabin Pressure fic for you, but I found I couldn't Finnemore :( Hope some sick!Lestrade will do instead.

Title: Summer Cold
Pairing: Sherlock/Lestrade (pre-series, established relationship)
Rating: G
Word count: 1449
Disclaimer: not mine, no profit

a/n: This story is part of the Jewish!Lestrade series, but you don't need to have read the other parts of the series to understand it. Just know that pre-series, Sherlock and Lestrade have an on-again-off-again relationship.

If you are keeping track, this story comes after On the Doorposts of Your Houseand Sea Wrack, the first part of "Four Times Sherlock and Lestrade Danced Together without Touching (and one time they did)," but before The Most Pious Jew in the RAF, the second part of that fic.

Summary: How long could they go on like this?
