Since the original Sherlock stories are now in the public domain, and since Team Moffat in no ways does their script "research" on Tumblr, I thought I'd help them out.

Remixes welcomed. Commercial works okay. Credit wouldn't go amiss. You know, the basics.

That goes for everyone else, btw. I've actually been meaning to do this for a while, and the latest Sherlock episode gave me enough of a laugh on this point, the time seemed just about right.

Which work?
Sorry if I'm being dense/unobservant, but... I don't actually see a link to the work in question?

Re: Which work?
You know, I could have been clearer about this. I meant this as a blanket statement for any fanfic I wrote, not any particular story.

This was kind of motivated by two things and seemed a funny half-joke to me. First, the latest Sherlock season had moments that felt very much like they were ripped from fanfic and fanart. The show-creators have denied they take their plotlines from Tumblr, and I don't think anyone is seriously complaining, of course. The other development is that in the US, the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories were recently declared in the public domain, meaning that fan fiction of those stories is just purely legal, publishable derivative fiction.

Usually, fanfic authors put up a disclaimer: no copyright infringement intended, all hail Mr. Original Author, etc. But with these development it struck me that maybe guidance to said original authors was more practical. I've been meaning to put up my Creative Commons preferences for a while now anyway. But mainly this post was me being ore than a bit amused at something that was mainly funny inside of my skull, I think.
