Sherlock Fic: Penumbra (Winter Special) **Complete**

Penumbra - with lettering Tiffany Windows

Title: Penumbra (Winter Special)
Author: saki101
Rating: R
Characters and Pairings: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Sherlock/John, Mrs Hudson, Mrs Turner, Wiggins, Greg Lestrade, Mycroft Holmes, Molly Hooper, OCs
Word Count: ~41.7K (Chapters 38/38)
Summary: Autumn has faded into winter. As the days grow shorter, Holmeswood Manor celebrates the solstice.
Disclaimer: Neither Sherlock BBC nor Dark Shadows belong to me.
A/N: Written in a series of short chapters to the prompts of the 2020 Advent Ficlet Challenge and taking as inspiration the John and Sherlock of the Unaired Pilot.

Another instalment of the Penumbra series, which is a gothic AU of the Sherlock universe inspired by the universe of Dark Shadows (the 1966 television series).

Preview: In Maine, there was Collinwood and the three centuries of history that were woven into its walls. In London, there is Holmeswood Manor (or the Manor on Baker Street as the urban legends have it), tucked now into a city street when once its oak woods rolled from the heath to the river.

Series One Overview: John grew up with its stories of ghosts and wizards and things that hunt in the night. They didn’t keep him from interviewing for a residential post at the Manor because he couldn’t afford London on an army pension and there could not possibly have been any truth to the tales.

Series Two Overview: It's been more than a year since John came to live at the Manor on Baker Street. He has learned many things, one being that the stories hadn't prepared him for the half of it.

Summer Mini-episode: A glimpse of life in the season after the ball.

Winter Special: The winter solstice approaches. John's knowledge of the Manor and himself expands.

Excerpt: I turned back to the window. “I don’t recall this last year. Were we away?” I leaned out. The breeze was sharp. The sound of bells louder.

“No. I told you this summer that you were changing.”

Summary: After John learns Irene Adler keeps texting Sherlock and Sherlock answers her sometimes, he can’t calm down. Of course Sherlock deserves a chance at something more or less normal, if a romantic entanglement with a lunatic dominatrix counts as such… But John isn’t an entirely selfless man, no matter how much he dislikes it and pretends to be otherwise. He’s not happy about this situation at all, despite his best efforts to do what’s right.

Searching for Trans/Sherlock

Greetings, all!

I am in search of a fic which I read several years ago; I believe it was on ao3. It involved the following:

- Victorian era setting
- Holmes/Watson/Mary relationship, in the end
- FtM/Sherlock who is a boxer and enjoys...erm...celebrating his bouts with anonymous sex in alleys
- Holmes is accidentally impregnated during one or another of these celebrations
- Mary and John take him into hiding (at the seaside? maybe? somewhere out of town) when he starts showing, until he gives birth
- Mary is a nurse?
- romantic feelings develop amongst the three of them? Or at least between Holmes and Watson with Mary's knowledge and encouragement

Any assistance in finding this fic would be lovely and greatly appreciated!
