Title: Yo soy un hombre sincero
Rating: G
Notes: magic mirror AU
Summary: 1895. Doctor John Watson looks in a mirror. José Martí, poet & ‘apostle of Cuban independence,’ looks back.

Author’s Note: for the June prompt: travel & for the GYWO May Mirror, Mirror Challenge (one person looks in a mirror; a different person looks back) my prompt was ‘Havana, Cuba.’ The verse are from José Martí’s Versos Sencillos, which was the last of his poetry to be published before his death in battle in May 1895. Anachronistically (i.e., the song wouldn’t be written for fifty more years), Watson is humming Guantanamera, which is based on pieces of Martí’s verse. Translation at the end.

Title: Untold Cases (No. 1)
Length: 352
Rating: Gen
Content Notes: six one-sentence stories; abuse of semicolon, dashes, and other punctuation; the untold cases; Holmes & Watson only
Author's Note: On fffc there is a challenge of 31 one-word prompts to write 31 one-sentences stories for. We're only supposed to post there when we've done a whole table, but as I'm having a bit of a rotten day, I thought I'd share the first six (with a different flower mentioned in each). The fffc prompt is in bold. Each sentence stands alone.
