Meme: 21 First lines.
Snagged from tolakasa: Post your first lines from your last 21 fics.

1) Watson stumbled in off the street through the door at 221B Baker Street.

2) Naw, it's not too late.

3) Left or right, John pelted along dim-lit alley, swift footfalls and cruel laughter cacophonous behind him.

4) "You were right, Sherlock," John said from the Skype window, sipping at a steaming mug.

5) Before he fully awoke, John was down the stairs and rounding the landing into the kitchen.

6) The child's small voice quavered.

7) Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
John had learned it at school, this bit of Shakespeare.

8) "You're useless to me like this, I'll have you know."

9) There was something to be said about the quiet of the bottom of a well.

10) Sherlock has the work, just his own life at risk.

11) "I'll not let you give that concoction to John until I've analyzed it!"

12) A bowl of ice cream, the tailings of a jar of strawberry jam and an enormous blob of Nutella.

13) Dean dropped his armload of beef jerky, nachos, corn dogs and miscellaneous road food on the gas station counter.

14) "MJN Air, First Officer Douglas Richardson speaking."

15) It's chased him ever since he was a boy, this thing.

16) John stared at the blank screen.

17) Early on, there were too many.

18) Mark: "You're in the Hollow checking things out, when you hear something howling."

19) "Hello, you've reached Parkside Terrace?"

20) It's one of the days when Sherlock wishes, truly wishes he could make his head literally explode and scatter brain matter around the room, just to give his thoughts the space they need, and then pack it all back in again after things have settled.

21) When it first happened, they were all riding in a taxi in Reykjanesbaer.

Hm, I didn't think about linking them. I may go back and do that.

Force of habit from doing those end of year LJ round up things.

...I may have done another romp through your Sherlock fic again.

What? I just had about 5 unsatisfying encounters with AO3 fic, I needed a crapton of good stuff to balance out that and baby's first solid day (and previous night, ugh) of teething issues!

(I would also like to state that if Season 3 doesn't get an RPG spoof I may cry a little.)

Aw, thanks. It remains to be seen if any part of Series 3 lends itself to RPGing, but if the bunny bites I'll post one.

I'll start crossing things immediately.
