Chapter 137 of My Surreal Life

Someone wrote Sherlock-Schneier fan fiction. Not slash, thank heavens. (And no, that's not an invitation.)

"I have also noticed an unaccountable interest in squids given that you have a limp plastic squid lounging in one of the empty coffee cups."

You do know you just effectively begged for a slashfic to be written about you, right?

"So your secrets...", gasped Sherlock
"Were meant to be revealed - why else would I have rolled my own crypto?" answered Schneier, in time with the springs on the mattress.

@ Sue,

You might want to think befor you leap, it had better be as good as Hemingway's "Old man and the sea", or the critics around hear will be "having your guts for garters".

"Schneier stood against the window, his ponytail silhouetted against the Boston light."

Title: "Bruce x Sherlock: The Arcane Mysteries of the Big G's Tentacular AdBot"
Subtitle: "An Amazing (B)Romance under Fibre-Optic Cable and LED Luminescence, with a tinge of Lovecraftian Horror, that will leave a lasting Sucker Impression on you!"

And if Bruce doesn't want it to be Slash, we just have to genderswap one of the two protagonists. Bruce has a ponytail, making him a prime candidate, but then there's the beard - and Bruce with no beard is no Bruce. So Sherlock shall have to be genderswapped ('Sherlockette'?).

No, I am not volunteering to write it. Just trying to 'help'.
