From joonscribble:

1. Pick a character (either a canon character or an original character) and ask me a question about him/her/it.

2. I'll answer the question with a fic snippet.

Whoa, how did I miss this fic? Thanks for pointing me toward it!

Yay for more Molly and Alec!

Because of the way I rotate through stories when I'm writing, I always get a bunch done at once. I wouldn't be surprised if you assumed it was one you already read because I posted the day before. Or two hours ago. :p

Yay for more Molly and Alec!

Getting Things Sorted

Alec loved the Sunday food markets, because they were a staple of weekends with his father. Every Sunday, Dad would wake him up early and they would go looking for ingredients to try out new dishes for dinner that night. Even after Dad remarried and Gigi and her daughters moved in and his half-siblings arrived, going to the market was a Dad and Alec thing. It was still where they went when Alec needed to discuss problems or get advice. "We'll go to the market and get you sorted, son". He found it comforting to be amongst all the colour and smells and food. It made him happy.

This Sunday, Molly was with him. She'd stayed over the night before and he'd suggested it as something to do that morning. She had her pinkie wrapped around his and held a basket over her arm for the food he picked from the stalls. She made him happy, too.

"Is everything okay?" she asked, blinking up at him.

"I love you," he said.

He wasn't sure what it was about her biting her lower lip while staring at starfruit that him so certain, but it had hit him in a sort of cricket bat to the head way.

Her eyes widened to almost comic levels for a moment, and then crinkled at the edges with a bright smile. "Oh!" she said. "Me too. I mean you. I mean, I love you, too."

Awwww! I love Molly's very Molly-ish response to Alec's declaration. It's in character but never makes her seem silly. Just completely sweet. Thanks for writing this! I'm awash with fuzzy feels now.

Thank you! I'm slightly worried about how much I've accidentally extended the Sherlock universe. I do hope when Series Three comes around, I'll still remember how to write the characters as canon.

In the meantime, this is super fun! Thanks for the great prompt.
