Title: On the Shelf
Author: SCFrankles
Length: ~446 words (sic)
'Verse: . . . the author's own. ACD, if one must choose.
Pairing: none
Rating: C, for crackety-crack-crack-crack (G)
Author's summary: Getting shot out of the canon...

Reccer's remarks: Look, it takes more time to describe this delicious little item than to read it. ACD's works compare stats, get taken out, sit on the shelf. No, it's nothing like hoping you're going to get asked to the prom, FFS, why would you think that?

Absolutely do not omit to read the exchanges in the comments, which are hilarious. Your reccer left kudos and welcomes any and all suggestions for coming up to the commenting standard set by other readers.

Excerpt:

“What about you, Vall? When were you last taken out?”
The Valley of Fear shrugged. “Don’t know. Can’t remember.”

On the AO3.

Thank you so much for the rec - what a lovely surprise ^___^ (I do so love your descriptions under 'Verse and Rating ^__^) Absolutely do not omit to read the exchanges in the comments, which are hilarious. It does have to be said that [personal profile] sanguinity in particular was in very fine form on the commenting front ^__^

I often find myself reading other people's intelligent and thoughtful comments and thinking: well, perhaps I'll just leave kudos then... ^^" Your brainfail is very reassuring ^__^ Personally I'm perfectly happy to settle for 'delicious little item' ^_^

Unfortunately I completely missed the rec on my reading page because of all the Watson's Woes JWP fics at the moment. But when I saw I was getting kudos the penny did eventually drop ^_^ Again, thank you very much - it means a lot to me.

Thanks so much for this rec! What a delight, and agreed about the comments. It made me want to read VALL again though.
