And so, a little later than usual (^^”), here is this month’s activity! Inspired by this week’s prompt and Okapi’s fic, my estimable co-mod has suggested we try:

Postcards Home

That is, we’re going to write short messages that could be sent on a postcard—up to three sentences. Your ‘from’ and ‘to’ can be put in the subject line of the comment.

An example from [livejournal.com profile] thesmallhobbit:

From Watson To Holmes

Enjoying Dorset. Have found a delightful secluded beach. Lestrade would send his regards but is currently otherwise occupied.

Yes… (Not quite sure I understand...) Anyway, please leave all your messages in the comments, ready for posting home!

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!

Hope Brighton's grand. What a pity you weren't here to solve to the Camberwell poisoning case! Suppose it'll just be me getting that Badge of Merit from the Chief.

Ooh, Lestrade, bit mean having a dig at your colleague.

Brighton is grand, thank you. I'll give your Ma the good news when she wakes up.

Seems a bit inefficient, though, Chief giving the badge to you and you giving it to Mister Sherlock Holmes.

On the other hand, apparently Gregson can give as good as he gets!

Nicely done :)

Yes, knives into each other like rival beauties.

Devon is glorious. As is Hopkins Hopkins and I are enjoying all the sights.

I know, it's sweet.

Have found the most amazing specimen. Please prepare bath in readiness. PS Watson says to check whether you will charge extra for mermaids.

Ha! Mrs. Hudson will definitely charge extra.

She was adding up the bill and ordering extra gin as soon as she'd read the postcard.

I can't thank you enough for recommending this Mediterranean cruise. Everything's lovely and the staff is, as you said, so very attentive. And they remember you so fondly there's even a commemoration on the drinks menu: Martha's Morning Lark is divine!

And very soon there will be another guest remembered with fondness :)
From: [identity profile] okapi1895.livejournal.com
Yes, indeed. But I suspect the 'Turner Burner' will be not on the official drinks menu but rather something you have to ask for by name.
