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!
