a sherlock thing

That thing where you write long Mystrade fics...

… and you have to keep checking:

  1. How many siblings of which gender you gave Greg in this one.
  2. What middle names you went for in the end (”I swear it was ‘Alexander’ in chapter five… but was that a different fic’s chapter five??”)
  3. Whether this Myke will answer to Myke or not.
  4. And whether you went for Myke or Myc.
  5. Whether Greg gets ‘Gregory’ or ‘Greg’ (or if we’re still on a narrow-eyed “inspector”).
  6. If we’re past “inspector”, this particular fic’s fluffy pet names (”darling”, “scoundrel”, ”beast”, etc.)
  7. Birthdays/star-signs. (damn, I made Greg a Scorpio this time… but the gorgeous bastard is quite clearly turning out a Leo…)
  8. If this one was an elegantly virginal Mycroft or whether he swears like a docker the second the bedroom door is shut.
  9. Which of them has the cheesecake obsession this time.

Note to self: make a spreadsheet.
