Hello.  So glad I found this community as well!

I've looked at a few comms and have put a request in others comms for a beta and Britpicker but haven't found one.

I've written a couple of fics for crossbigbang and het_bigbang (already, yes).  Both fics are crossovers; crossbigbang is with a Torchwood character that died in canon as well as a Luther character, and het_bigbang is one Luther character (with another in the background).  The crossbigbang is also AU (because of the Torchwood character).  Both fics are rated R, largely for violence, and are not part of the same universe, if you're wondering.  The crossbigbang project is based on "The Adventures of the Empty House;" the het_bigbang project is based on "The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton." 

I'm looking mostly for a beta to make sure my Sherlock, John and Lestrade are in character and/or to make sure the events in the story make sense.  If you don't know Torchwood and/or Luther, it's okay; I want you to read only for the Sherlock characters.  I am from the United States, and I did research London to the best of my ability in these fics, but I want to make sure I don't make any logical fallacies with my fics; that's why I'd love a Britpicker.

het_bigbang is way off in August-ish, so a need for a beta and Britpicker for that fic is not needed now.  crossbigbang starts posting next month, and I'd love a beta and/or Britpicker as soon as possible for that fic.

If you'd like to find out more information, I'd be glad to answer any replies to this post or any PMs.  Thanks!

Looking for a brit-pick, grammar & content beta for book!verse slash fics (Holmes/Watson), rated from PG to R.
Fics are supposed to be pastiches - my goal is to approximate to ACD's writing style as close as possible. 
It would be great if you could help me to surmount some difficulties that may occur.

Thanks in advance!

I am writing a story involving Mary and Dr. Watson on their honeymoon.  I have to ask, what do honeymooners do?  Other than the obvious.  I know about swimming and theatre but what else do they do?  Also, how long are honeymoons normally last?

I just finished reading the short-story The Adventure of the Copper Beeches, while reading the part with the woman sitting in the window struck me as really familiar. I have a vague memory of reading about a man who saw a woman sitting in a window but when they realized he was watching they shut it. Is there another Doyle-story which tells a similar story from his perspective or is it all in my head?
Any SH geeks here who knows the works well enough to help me? :)

I'm a fanfiction writer, but I'm also an academic and I'm giving a paper in November
on the Sherlock Holmes fandom(s).

I'd love to have as much input from participants as possible, from as many
segments of the fandom as possible. Everyone is welcome.

If you'd like to take a few moments, the questions are here at my Journal:

Thanks for your kind indulgence.

Yesterday I was reading through an antique book of lectures I'd just bought, and happened across an interesting (and quite Holmesian) couple of paragraphs regarding digestion and "protracted mental efforts."

I found it really interesting and pertinent and, well, I was in a sharing mood. It was suggested on holmes_finders that here was the place to post!

Nice to meet you, I guess! Here it is at my journal:

Hullo all!

I've got some specific questions relating to certain aspects of British police procedure and child welfare. Any help is appreciated.

- Lestrade is a DI and on the scenes of the suicides in SIP. Does that mean that he would be able to respond to any murder in London? I know there are other DIs in the Met, there's the CID and the murder squads, but if I need him to be at a particular crime scene, I could have him there?

- where in London would a well-off, posh-but-not-pretentious single mother have a house? I'm thinking St John's Wood, or possibly Kensington.

- what would basic police procedure be at a crime scene involving a very young (aged three) child as the only witness to a murder? Especially if the child is mute.

- if a child's mother dies and there's no family member, what immediately happens to him? Where does he go? What organisation handles his care? For example, Great Ormond Street has a mental trauma department for children, could he possibly be sent there for evaluation and care? I need to know who handles him immediately following his mother's death, and where he ends up until someone's found to claim him.

Thanks for any help! <3

Seeing that the season for holiday-themed fics is going to come up soon.. :-)
I know there is a wealth of information about Victorian Christmas traditions on the internet and my head is already hurting, but I still haven't figured out when, precisely, the gifts were exchanged. I understand the children would find them on Christmas Day under the tree, but the adults? And would there be any "official" celebration at all on Christmas Eve?

Thanks in advance!
