Greetings, Librarians and patrons! I’m Em, your guest snarker today. I’ll be riffing Sacrifice, a two chapter, Suspense/Angst tagged Sherlock fic by Emma-Alberta.

I don’t believe BBC’s Sherlock series has been brought up in the Library before, but I’m not going to go full SC Wiki. Since this is a short fic, I’ll do more of a lazy, Taco-style, Need To Know Pamphlet and throw in relevant details as needed.

First off, Sherlock Holmes is a fictional British detective created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in a series of mostly short stories that were written and set in the late 1800’s/early 1900’s. Told through the voice of his assistant, Dr. John Watson, they show Sherlock as a master of logical reasoning, forensic science, and observation during investigations for various clients as well as Scotland Yard.

There have been bajillions of literary, film, and television adaptations featuring the characters, the latest of which is the BBC television series, Sherlock. In this version, some of the original stories are adapted and set in modern day London.

This fic was written and posted just four days after the Season 1 finale, “The Great Game”, aired in 2010 with an update the next day.

Now let’s take a look at the summary.

my view what happens after the episode ‘Great Game’ ends… angst because im like that. sorry if i spell Moriarty’s name wrong… i have no idea how to spell it haha

Terrible grammar, missing and misused punctuation, and topped off with a dose of too-lazy-to-Google-ness? This looks promising.
