castiron: Kermit the Frog behind Fozzie Bear: Trust me, Fozzie, the pig isn't watching.  Muppetslash. (fic)
Title: Not Yet Dead
Fandoms: BBC Sherlock & ACD Sherlock Holmes.
Length: 106K±2K words, depending on whether you ask BBEdit or Google Docs (and AO3 will probably have yet another number).
Rating: BBC-series-comparable violence; body count's probably higher, though on a technicality. The MPAA would rate it R for the cussing.
Summary: Sherlock Holmes has long been fascinated with (and haunted by) the tragic story of his namesake cousin. When his nightmares about it grow unbearable and he starts seeing hypnotherapist Jim Moriarty, however, Sherlock begins to wonder whether he himself is his cousin's reincarnation. Have Sherlock and the modern John Watson known each other before this life? Can Sherlock solve a nineteenth-century murder and prove the historic Dr. Watson innocent, and also solve the current string of oddly-posed unidentified corpses?
Warnings: Likely geography abuse; probable misrepresentation of the British Library's ability to catalog their archives; hypnosis doesn't really work that way; references to unrequited love, but decided lack of pr0n. Otherwise, I'm a "chooses not to warn" person, though on AO3 I did tick "Major Character Death". (Which is pretty useless, since a lot of the major characters are dead before the story even starts, so you don't know whether I mean them or others...)
Thanks to: [ profile] thesmallhobbit for beta, Brit-picking, and extreme patience; [personal profile] belovedmuerto for reminders to get off my butt and write.

(If you're following the fic on AO3, you've seen all this; this is just a backup copy.)
