Title: Sherlock Holmes and the Chamber of Speakeasy
Fandom: Sherlock Holmes/Harry Potter crossover
Summary: In the autumn of the year 1865, John H. Watson begins his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and finds himself having to contend with three very bizarre friends, a prankster brother, an opened Chamber of Secrets, a carrot, and an odd boy named Sherlock Holmes.
Author's Note: After a lot of editing, a fair amount of worrying and a coaxing from one of my friends, I have decided to venture into the world of publishing fanfic on one's own LJ. This fanfic has previously gone up once before, on my sister's ffnet account, but I have decided it is time to take credit for my own slightly demented imaginings.
So, without further ado, I present:
A trite opening, I know, but I honestly can't think how else I can write in here apart from in informal as hell language (colloquial already, see?) and in rather clichéd phrases. But I digress. I am here, journal, to say that I am in love. With Marlowe's 'Hero and Leander', no less, or, more specifically, its gorgeous, wonderful, amazing rhyme scheme and meter. Iambic pentameter AND heroic couplets, sustained almost throughout the ENITRE poem? Christopher Marlowe, you are proclaimed my newest 'Knight of the Order of the Most Wonderful Poetry' in my heart.( tedious self reflexive thoughts ahoyCollapse )
