@ 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”.

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’.
