for Sherry

The bar turned up in Doll's closet after today's sentence. She isn't one to look a gift horse too much in the mouth, which is why she has a corner table with a view of the room and a cold beer.

(There is still a little blood under her nails if you look.)

Sherlock pauses on his way to the bar from the stairs and gives her a studying look.

(There is a set of vivid bruises on his throat. Handprints. He wears them neither proudly nor with shame; it's like he doesn't even know they're there, or can't be bothered to care if he does.)
if_inconvenient: (>= not terribly surprised)

Slowly and very deliberately, he raises his eyebrows.
if_inconvenient: (!= that was Victorian)

[personal profile] if_inconvenient 2011-04-25 10:21 am (UTC)(link)
He smiles, faint and very wry.

"And what is your interest?" he asks.
if_inconvenient: (>= with his dignity on maximum)

[personal profile] if_inconvenient 2011-04-25 11:47 pm (UTC)(link)
"Intriguing."

His eyes do not flick down to study her fingernails again; he has seen them already.

"And what, pray tell, is your profession?"
if_inconvenient: (== ultimately inconsequential)

[personal profile] if_inconvenient 2011-04-25 11:52 pm (UTC)(link)
"Of whom, to what end?"

It hardly bears mentioning that he is not afraid.
if_inconvenient: (!= any such experiments)

[personal profile] if_inconvenient 2011-04-26 12:04 am (UTC)(link)
"I confess myself fascinated," he says, leaning against the wall beside her table.

"I assume you don't practice your trade around the bar."
if_inconvenient: (<= it's good to be home)

[personal profile] if_inconvenient 2011-04-26 12:10 am (UTC)(link)
His eyes fall shut.



"No," he says, gentle and quite steady, "I am afraid not."
if_inconvenient: (!= that was Victorian)

[personal profile] if_inconvenient 2011-04-26 12:26 am (UTC)(link)
"Was 'fascinated' insufficiently descriptive?"
if_inconvenient: (== ultimately inconsequential)

[personal profile] if_inconvenient 2011-04-26 12:37 am (UTC)(link)
"In what sense?" he inquires idly, as though the answer makes no particular difference to him.
if_inconvenient: (!= quintessentially Stark)

[personal profile] if_inconvenient 2011-04-26 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
"I am content to keep my interest in your profession entirely academic. My interest in your person, however..."
if_inconvenient: (<= I know it sounds absurd)

[personal profile] if_inconvenient 2011-04-26 01:41 am (UTC)(link)
"It's possible," he allows.
if_inconvenient: (!= that was Victorian)

[personal profile] if_inconvenient 2011-04-26 01:51 am (UTC)(link)
He runs the tips of his fingers down the side of his neck, over the rather spectacular marks.

(Somewhere under there is a scar. Vampire fangs. It doesn't show very well at the moment.)

"Is it possible for you to take me upstairs and add to the collection?"
