teaforlupin asked: Good golly. Sounds like you could use a break :) what kind of pup?
Big giant huge buffalo dog. :D
He’s a mix — chow, golden retriever, Aussie. He’s 80 pounds, +/- 5, and he’s all lovey and cuddly.
About Major Peregrine - I named my first car Peregrine!
I’ve always been a Bond fan, even before Skyfall. And regarding Ian Fleming’s choice of “James Bond” as the main character’s name, he said this:
"I wanted the simplest, dullest, plainest-sounding name I could find, ‘James Bond’ was much better than something more interesting, like ‘Peregrine Carruthers’. Exotic things would happen to and around him, but he would be a neutral figure—an anonymous, blunt instrument wielded by a government department."
“It would help if you could tell me something before we get started. This is a bit over the top, even for you two,” John snapped, trying to keep his voice down.
Mycroft looked past John to Sherlock, who ignored him, focusing on drinking his coffee with the grim determination of a man who was going to his death. Sighing, Mycroft turned his attention back to John. “This meeting is to coordinate Charlie Team — the scientists and analysts who will be entering a lab that does not exist, in order to determine the cause behind an automatic outbreak alarm triggered” — he glanced at the countdown clock, which was now at 19:57 — “three hours and three minutes ago. Alfa and Bravo Teams have already gone in to secure the area, so the threat of hostile contact should be minimal, but one mustn’t take chances.”
“So it is a bioweapon.”
“Hardly a weapon. It is an unknown infectious agent that presents itself in nature. We are the Phase One response team, covering outbreaks and crises in the UK, Iceland, and outlying islands. The release happened at our Seaview facility in the mouth of the Bristol Channel.”
John took a breath and licked his lips, nodding slowly. “Right. And our roles?”
British military helicopters.
And I hate flying!
Writing John Porter fanfic leads to wanting to write ALL the John Porter fanfic.
*eyes zombie WIP that needs finishing*
You know, now that I’m trying to catch up on unfinished works, I was looking at this one, too!

Summary: A peaceful evening at 221b is abruptly interrupted by an unexpected emergency: a security breach at a secret government lab. As a first responder, Sherlock Holmes is called to join the entry team to investigate the situation — and John Watson discovers the terrible truth of what lies beneath a quiet island in the Bristol Channel.
Sherlock still looked terrified, though he was trying to hide it. John had seen that same look too many times before in young men who knew that at the end of the flight, someone would be shooting at them, and the years fell away from Captain John Watson, RAMC. With his old, quick grin back in place, he said, “If we’re overthrowing the government because Mycroft’s irritated you, we will have words about this, Sherlock.”
The mindless fear in Sherlock’s eyes slipped away, replaced first by shock, and then by a desperate sort of black humour as he barked out a laugh. “If we did, I’d at least let you have the army.”
“What do I want with a bloody army? I have my hands full dealing with you.”
Morning reblog! Because oops, I launched a new story at oh-shit-a.m. for most of my readers. :)
And unless something disastrous happens, I’ll be posting a new chapter every day or two.
