You might've seen this [community profile] 3_ships story on the [community profile] fandom_of_one newsletter. Well, here it is again, and apologies.

But first, before I c&p this here and AO3 to the best of my ability, my Burn Notice story was written by [ profile] afullmargin. Thanks again!

To: [personal profile] 7iris
From: [personal profile] merryghoul
Fandom: Luther
Threesome: John Luther/Alice Morgan/Mark North
Title: Words That Begin with M | AO3
Requested Element: (For some reason this was omitted from the site, and I just saw it now, but it was "blood.")
Warning: author chose not to use standardized warnings; contains knifeplay and mentions of past self-harm and attempted suicide
Notes: Post Series 2 fic with non-spoilery details about Series 3. (Also very covert mentions of: There Will Be Blood, CSI Miami, Dexter, Burn Notice and Don Quixote.)
Summary: Alice shares her love of the letter M with John and Mark.
Rating: R (not originally given in the fic, but that's how I would rate it)

Format-wise, it should be cleaner now if it wasn't already.

My story for [ profile] het_bigbang, a Sherlock/Luther crossover, is here. I wanted artwork, but my usual go-to artist was busy, so no art from her. I plan on teaming up with her for my Burn Notice big bang projects, since there are so few artists in the fandom. We shall see, hmm.

Also, while I'm rambling, this may be my last Sherlock fic for a while. I'm spending a lot of time at [community profile] fandom_secrets 2.0, and someone posted a secret about a fandom that was SO AWFUL they had to leave it. The secret struck a chord with me in ways that I will not reveal explicitly. I don't know how long leaving the Sherlock fandom will be and how I'll interact with the fandom if I do come back, but I'm leaving it for now and probably dipping my toes into more USA Network fandoms as well as Rizzoli & Isles. (But I'm not going to that LiveJournal comm, oh no.)

And, now that I'm thinking about it, I've decided to start a new big bang policy. I'm only posting at AO3 and Dreamwidth for all big bang projects now. There will be no multi-part entries at LiveJournal and, if applicable, Teaspoon (which I have stopped using). Some time this weekend, I'll put the story here on Dreamwidth as a backup and I'll link to it here, but that's it. Putting stories on four platforms (at most) takes time, and I'm tired of it.

I've been slow to put them up, but while I was waiting for something, I put them all (that weren't already tw100 drabbles or Kink Bingo fills) on AO3. (Too much work for crossposting to LJ/DW, I'm afraid.)

Fandoms: Luther
H/C: ostracised from society, stalkers

Title: Dark Matter | AO3
Fandom: name of the fandom
Prompt: ostracised from society, stalkers
Medium: fic
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: no standard warnings apply; description of a chemical burn
Summary: Alice was once obsessed with a guy from Oxford.

A/N: A remix of "The Black Hole from Oxford," from a comment from the original fic. Not properly Britpicked, but I did try to research Oxford for this fic. And, given that the actual canon says Alice graduated at 18 from Oxford, in my head, she did three years for her first degree and two for her doctorate. (I would've had her graduate about 19, but that may be my line of thinking.) Anyway, fic, set sometime in series two:

Content notes: mentions of self-harm
Author notes: (skip) Midway through the second series of Luther, John broke Alice Morgan out of a mental hospital; she subsequently fled England (and the series thus far). To keep her identity hidden specifically in this story, Alice calls herself "Zoe Luther," the name of John's wife that died near the end of series one.
Also, this fic is for the Softer World meme on LJ and [ profile] comment_fic, here.
Summary: John gets an email from an old friend.

*gulp* I'm not usually one to write meta about anything, but I was really motivated by this older [community profile] fem_thoughts prompt:

Crossover femslash--why do you write/read it or not write/read it? What about the characters, shows, etc. makes you pair up women from different canons? How is it different, or not, from non-crossover fic?

Although I have written other crossover femslash pairings, I decided to focus on a couple I like writing, Suzie Costello (from Torchwood; usually I write her as if she never died in canon) and Alice Morgan (from Luther). And although I wrote them once before, for [community profile] au_bingo , I came back to writing them again for a series of fics set over the universes of Torchwood, Sherlock and Luther called Suzanne Costello: Life is All. Onto the meta.

I came to write the current incarnation of Alice Morgan/Suzie Costello in my series Suzanne Costello: Life is All based off of a comment I received from [ profile] crossbigbang . There wasn't a plan originally for Alice to appear in the series; the Torchwood/Sherlock/Luther "crossover" was an AU version of Suzie Costello, using the identity of Zoe Luther, breaking out of prison after nearly killing Sherlock Holmes. Gradually I incorporated Alice into the story until I made her Suzie's lover, business partner and a parent to her daughter.

Pairing these two was easy. Both characters are serial killers with a nihilist point of view. Why not get them to fall in love?

Writing these two as parents who are involved sexually involved (and are still murderers) allowed me to buck some trends I've been seeing in Luther, Sherlock and Torchwood fanfiction. There's not a lot of femslash in Luther and Sherlock, in large part because of the dearth of well-rounded female characters in canon. Female characters in these canons are also either rarely written about (especially female characters nearing or over 40) or paired with male characters (e.g. Alice/John). And while there are several fics featuring Jack and Ianto and Sherlock and John with kids, there aren't a lot of femslash couples featured in kid!fic/curtain!fic for either Sherlock or Torchwood. By writing Alice and Suzie the way I did in Suzanne Costello: Life is All, I wanted to prove that women (no matter how dangerous they are) can be written as lovers and parents in fanfiction, even if a crossover was needed to make it all possible.
