stories I've never written

Trying to get the juices flowing. Please play along!

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.

I'm happy to take on any Tolkien, most Sherlock (Doyle - Granada - Ritchie - BBC), and pretty much anything you've seen me blather on about. Tempt me, please.

I can think of no better description than ‘the Peacock’.”

"Still, you couldn't at least have googled them? Found her thesis on the migratory patterns of - " He probed the growing swelling just under Sherlock's rib, batted his hand away Sherlock tried to end his examination prematurely. "Determined little bugger, a few more centimeters and it might have nicked your spleen."

"Unavoidable."

"It really wasn't."

Sherlock pulled his feet up under him, curling into a ball of consulting detective and, if he took note of the smile pulling at John’s lips, for once he took the wiser path and left those particular words unsaid.

LOL, excellent! And so what if it's more than three sentences? You got the juices flowing, and that's what counts.
