Title: John Watson’s Shaggy Bangs
Author: Ariane DeVere
Word count: 221 (+ a 221B Author’s Note)
Warnings/Tags: Humour. Smut. Language misunderstandings.
Summary: The difference between the English language and the American language can sometimes cause confusing misunderstandings. Thankfully this particular difference leads to a satisfactory ending.
Prompted by a Tumblr post entitled John Watson Shaggy Bangs Appreciation Post which – once I’d almost choked to death laughing with utter delight – I couldn’t reblog fast enough. Then the plotbunny woke up for the first time in ages and said, “Oooh, if ever there was a prompt for a 221B fic ...”

Because of the kerfuffle over the new Livejournal terms and conditions, I thought it wise to set up a Dreamwidth account for the benefit of people who are no longer comfortable using LJ. It made sense to do this anyway, because I’ve always been worried that if Livejournal should have a fatal meltdown, I would have to reload everything manually to another site, and this latest situation gave me the nudge to get on with it.
I (hopefully) transferred everything over to the new DW account yesterday. Of course, at present all the links in my Index go straight back to the Livejournal entries. It’ll take me
weeks months to update the links to go to the Dreamwidth equivalent pages, plus I’ll also have to edit the Go to Part 2 / Return to Part 1 links inside each page of the transcripts. So that’ll be fun(!)
For the present I’m keeping this Livejournal blog open, mainly because there are so many fics and metas out there which provide a link to LJ. So unless things get drastically worse on LJ, I won’t be thinking about deleting this account. Once I’ve updated everything, I’ll put a big notice on the Index linking across to the Dreamwidth blog.
But anyway, if you would rather follow me on Dreamwidth instead of here, my new account is here. If I’ve set everything up properly, whenever I post anything new on DW it will automatically post to here as well for those who still follow this blog.
I was going to leave this for a few weeks because I’ll probably be tweaking the transcripts for ages yet, but decided to do it now as a sort of Valentine gift to the few members of the fandom who still might be interested in such a thing.
So all the transcripts - from A Study in Pink (both the broadcast version and the pilot), all the way through Many Happy Returns and the Special, right the way up to and including The Final Problem - are now downloadable as Word or PDF files.
There’s a file of all the transcripts in their entirety; a file of just the speaker and spoken words in every episode; and a file giving all the words spoken by 27 individual characters listed together, e.g. every line spoken in all episodes by Mycroft, or by John, or by Mrs Hudson etc.
And for those people who have already got heavily annotated/edited earlier versions of the transcripts, there are also Season 4 only versions of the full transcripts and of the speakers and spoken words.

“Sherlock” Season 4 DVD extras: ‘The Writer’s Chat’ / ‘Script to Screen’ / ‘Set Tour: John and Mary’s Flat’ / ‘Mark Gatiss Video Diary: On Set’ / ‘Mark Gatiss Video Diary: Final Scenes’ / ‘Danny Hargreaves Video Diary’ / ‘Timelapse: Building 221B’
This is a transcript of new material which appears only on various Special Features of the Season 4 DVD. It does not include a transcript of the clips from the episodes which are shown throughout the features, nor does it include descriptions of every visual moment, and I didn’t add every instruction spoken by the production crew. I also haven’t transcribed every ‘er’ and ‘um’ and stutter as the interviewees speak but I hope that it may be useful in particular to viewers whose first language is not English and who are unable to access the subtitles.

It does not include a transcript of the clips from the episodes which are shown throughout the feature, nor does it include descriptions of every visual moment, and I didn’t add every instruction spoken by the production crew. I also haven’t transcribed every ‘er’ and ‘um’ and stutter as the interviewees speak but I hope that it may be useful in particular to viewers whose first language is not English and who are unable to access the subtitles.

In May 2012 my 100 word drabble called Distraction was chosen for inclusion in Sherlock’s Home – The Empty House, a book of Sherlockian fanfiction published to raise funds for a charity trying to preserve Undershaw, the former home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Shortly afterwards a poll was run by the publishers for readers to choose their favourite story from the book and to my amazement my story won the poll.
The poll closed in August 2012 and I’m still waiting for the prize which was promised to the winner – for the story to be narrated and recorded for public download by Nicholas Briggs, who plays Sherlock Holmes in the Audio Adventures.
To show how it should be done, in August 2013 my lovely friend Mirith Griffin decided to commemorate the one year anniversary of me winning the poll and, in the space of a couple of hours, did what a professional publishing company couldn’t do in a year and produced a podfic – or, rather, a video-fic – of the story.
You can view it here.
And in January 2017 the awesome daysofstorm published this on Tumblr after she had arranged for Curtis Armstrong to do a podfic of the story! You can listen to it here.
I am a very lucky girl.
The book is still available, either as an e-book or in hard copy, through the usual channels.
