I just wanted to thank you all so much for your cheers and comments, without which I would not have been motivated to keep up with the November challenge. As much as I love writing about these characters, it is much more rewarding to know that I am doing so for a captive audience. Your feedback inspired me to keep digging and developing and I appreciate all of you taking the time to read and post replies every day.
I do have two other works in the offing, one of which is an attempt at a hiatus fic, now that I feel I might be able to portray a vulnerable Holmes without losing the essence of his character. I hope to have it posted by the end of the year.
And, finally, as my token of gratitude, I will post one final parting shot of our fair heroes tomorrow to make up for the fact that I actually missed the first day of the challenge. It is with your (ok, our) affinity for steamy hot sex in mind that I am composing this little coda.
Thanks again for making the i_mop challenge a total joy.
See you again soon,
