As it’s time for the third annual Wits on Tap I felt like it was time to reblog the two amazing poetry remixes of my fics from previous years. This is from the very first Wits on Tap, and I was rather new to fandom (at least when it came to actually interacting), and so I was very nervous, but thrilled. And then, imagine the amazement when I got an ao3 notification saying that @iamjohnlocked4life had submitted a related work to one of my fics, and *this* breathtaking thing - formating and all - appeared. I printed it at work, and almost couldn’t contain myself from showing people this poem, with or without saying that *this* was based on something *I* had written…! The lyrical way it’s written and the way that Iamjohnlocked4life actually included a part of the lyrics of the song that I mentioned in the author’s note as inspiration to the fic… wow.

As it’s time for the third annual Wits on Tap poetry remix challenge I’ve posted the two amazing poems I received as remixes of my own fics, but since the fics I myself got assigned to remix were such amazing (and already poetic) works, I’m posting my own remixes as well. This one is from last year, and it’s based on @mugenmine’s hot and smoky fic Secondhand Smoke. Go read that fic! Also, I’m very lucky, because I actually got to meet mugenmine half a year after this, at Sherlock Seattle, and that was an honour!

As it’s time for the third annual Wits on Tap poetry remix challenge I’ve posted the two amazing poems I received as remixes of my own fics, but since the fics I myself got assigned to remix were such amazing (and already poetic) works, I’m posting my own remixes as well. This is the first poem I’ve ever written in English (and I hadn’t written many in Swedish either). I was lucky enough to be assigned the absolutely beautiful, saudade fic The Dance Lesson by @holmesianpose, and wow - that gave me a lot of beautiful aspects to work with. It also got me and holmesianpose talking, and eventually we met together with another dear fandom friend a few months later, and I think I have Wits on Tap to thank for that! This is a beautiful, nostalgic story - read it!

2:14am: Come and See Me Redux

At one point I hated writing at 2am
It would remind me of a girl….
That never became a lover
We just stayed as friends
There was a moment when a kiss almost changed everything…
U know circumstances mixed with vodka just means destiny’s moving faster
As the years went by we drifted apart
I came to the conclusion that’s just what life does….
Take lips that adored each other in a timeless moment
Only to have them move to Oakland….
Even now when I light up my blunt
After a few rounds wit a woman that loves my music selection
My lips tend to say what if
My mind wants the phone to ring
My ears wants to hear her say…
Come and See me

Poem 4 @kimmieklaws

The Kingsman’s Code

I’ve written a sonnet for the Wits on Tap poetry challenge, based on ageofaquitaine‘s super cool Sherlock/Kingsman crossover fic Knight’s Code: http://archiveofourown.org/works/3449813

The sonnet will probably make most sense after reading the fic – which is a great read, regardless!

I hope you like it, ageofaquitaine!


The Kingsman’s Code

The nation’s hour of need requires all
thy shrewdness, Harry. So take tea with he
who guides the path of empires quietly.
Campaign against the men who would enthrall
the goldfish plebs with a nefarious plan.
With Mycroft (“Guinevere”), strive thou to see
that fine facades corrupt the devotee:
It is not only manners maketh man.
The safety of the world comes at a price,
and one man’s heart, in balance, counts for naught.
The price is paid, and not just once or twice:
with fear and grief, good men do what they ought.
Need Guinevere repent? Is Sherlock’s heart
beyond repair, or poised to play its part?
