My Thoughts

I am a sucker for many things. One of those things is the epistolary form of storytelling. There’s something about reading someone else’s letters, diaries, or private messages that can make stories so much more dynamic. It’s like voyeurism for readers! Anyway, this post series 4 fix it fic is the perfect example of how to properly carry out the epistolary form. Through letters, text messages, personal lists, paperwork, and video transcripts, Itsallfine tells us how Sherlock and John FINALLY get together. Chapters are short and sweet, but leave you rushing to read the next one. We’re coming down to the wire with just the epilogue left, so what are you waiting for? Read this story if you’re like me, and are desperate for a good combination of Parentlock, fluff, angst, and of course, UST.

Until next time,
