Title: Fruitful Verse
Rating: G
Length: 305
Poetic Form: etheree (octuple)
Author's Note: Greenaway's Language of Flowers gives the following meanings: cherry (good education); plum (fidelity); peach (your qualities like your charms are unequal); raspberry(remorse); and strawberry (love and esteem); the tart also contains blackberry and blueberry preserves.
Inky's Note: Mrs. Hudson was kind enough to lend me the use of her kitchen (and her opposable thumbs) to prepare a most auspicious dessert, the epiphany tart, for presentation with this verse on this felicitous occasion and so I humble submit:

To Mister Holmes, a bit of fruitful verse on this the anniversary of your birth.
Happy Birthday, Mister Holmes! )

Happy birthday, Mr. Holmes!



Yes, this month the activity post has been brought forward a little, in honour of this splendid day.



And the activity is:


Suggestions in the comments for what different characters would give Sherlock Holmes for his birthday.




An extra added activity:


One present that Mr. Holmes is hoping to receive is a delicious Epiphany tart from Okapi. But there has been an anguished note from Dr. Watson regarding gifts of lesser tarts (message passed on via my esteemed co-mod)—”Please, no more Epiphany tarts - if anyone can suggest what to do with those that have already been received, I would be extremely grateful."

So there you have it. Pie-eating contest? Slapstick at Scotland Yard? Victorian frisbees? The field is wide open.



As always, you needn’t take part in this activity if you don’t wish to. Once you’re a member, you can post what and when you want—as long as you keep to the 500 words or less wordcount and the ACD Holmes ‘verse. AUs, crossovers and fusions are all permitted, as long as the characters remain essentially recognisable as the original ACD versions.

Please see the profile for the full posting guidelines!
