Title: Season four
Author: Ariane DeVere
Word count: 100
Rating: G
Disclaimer: Sherlock belongs to way more powerful and wealthy people than me.

Warnings: Spoilers for recent news about the Sherlock TV series. No spoilers for actual events within episodes (because no-one knows any yet!).

Summary: Just a cracky little 100-word drabble to celebrate recent photos and news about the series.

“‘Season four’?” Sherlock asked. “Everyone knows there are four seasons. Which one did she mean? Spring? Autumn? Which one?”

He looked at the woman’s body, frustrated at not understanding why she had written the words so many times on the walls of her bedroom, but suddenly the truth dawned.

“She died of happiness,” he reported. “Look at her face – that’s not a rictus of panic or fear. She died happy.”

Shrugging, he turned away. “I’m not interested if it wasn’t a murder,” he stated. He had far more important priorities right now. He turned to John.

“Pass me a grape.”


Author’s Note: Well, we all have our different ways of celebrating the news that the cast have signed up for a fourth series of Sherlock even before they’ve started filming series/season 3; and we all have our different ways of celebrating the bonkers picture of Benedict and Martin taken at the first table read a couple of days ago.

Graham Norton would be so disappointed in me. :p

Edited to add: Sadly, since then, Benedict has back-tracked on his announcement that they have already signed up for Series 4. Still, we live in hope ... even though it seems that I killed off a mysterious fangirl for no good reason. Sorry, ma’am!

Bloody brilliant. I love you!


PS And bonus points for potentially disappointing Graham Norton!

"Graham Norton would be so disappointed in me. :p"

*giggle* Yes, but we aren't!

What a great drabble and a splendid celebration!

I feel like Sherlock in SiP when there's been a 'fourth'. . . jumping up and down and shouting "BRILLIANT!!!!"

(Isn't it wonderful, though, that they all love making the series as much as we love watching it?)

Hahahaha, golden! I think there's going to be a rash of these...

I have spent the last few moments trying to press the "Resuscitate" button on your icon! I love it!

Thanks! It has never been used more appropriately in context! ;)

Ariane, is it you lying on the floor? ARIANE PLEASE DON'T BE DEAD YOU HAVE SO MANY SLASH STORIES TO WRITE YET! Also, I think that's a very good way of celebrating these brilliant news and photo. I demand that you to celebrate EVERY new Sherlock stuff with a fic from now on.

"Ariane can't come to the phone right now, as she is most definitely lying dead on the floor - and had quite a blissful time of it while Sherlock stared deeply into her eyes and then poked her. But sadly not in that way. But she did get to see what Sherlock did with the grape. *snigger* Anyway, because she is dead, she therefore cannot accede to certain bossy people's demands for anything. Please leave a message after the beep - and a fat lot of good it'll do you, too."

Oh my God! (Oops I shouldn't say that the day we got a new pope.)

Oh Wow! Don't know what I like most your perfect celebrating drabble or this answer to chocola's comment!
13th-Mar-2013 10:54 pm (UTC)

I heart you so hard right now :D
13th-Mar-2013 11:56 pm (UTC)
Oh my God, this is perfect. Sherlock not understanding the season 4 thing was perfect. And she died of happiness!!! Good for her. :D

Someone really needs to link to that picture... people keep telling me about it but I have yet to see it...
14th-Mar-2013 07:42 am (UTC)
Also, I love this. :D

Well, it's just about everywhere, but try here.

Just when I think "too bad that Ariane has been inactive for so long, I miss her" you show up with something brilliant.

I'm a bit reluctant to celebrate yet, though - Paul McGuigan left the director's seat and that's bad news to me, I liked his episodes best.
14th-Mar-2013 11:22 am (UTC)
I agree - the news that McGuigan won't be involved made me very unhappy. I really hope that the directors for this series are sat down in a room to watch some of Paul's episodes and are told, "Like this, d'you understand?" And hopefully they'll also be shown a bit of The Blind Banker and told, "NOT like this"!

Definitely NOT like TBB:)

And if I could please, not like TRF either. I don't know who's more to blame, either the director or the screenwriter (or just me), but it was too fast and too fragmented and too incoherent for me. Maybe it was the length - I couldn't shatter off the feeling that should that episode be like two hours or longer, it would be better to tell the story, but ninety minutes were just too little time to tell it properly.

Or maybe it's just me hating Moriarty, I don't know:)))
