Author's summary:
“It’s actually two point nine.”
“What?”
“Meters. That you stay from me, all the time. Well—since you punched me, anyway.”
“Oh. I hadn’t really put that much thought into it.”
“How very homoscedastic of you.”

Reccer's comments: This is a charming and clever little ficlet, one of my favorites from the author's Mathematical Proof series. I love the idea behind these stories: the author, being enrolled in several graduate-level mathematics courses, decided to use the math concepts she recorded in her daily notes as prompts for Johnlock fic. She wrote the stories to illustrate the abstract concepts she was studying in fun and creative ways, and it just makes me feel kind of great about fandom? I so admire the wonderfully varied talents that our authors possess, and the way they can bring this imaginative thing that they love into unexpected parts of their life and work. This series always puts a smile on my face. So here's a delightful drabble for your busy Friday. And if you feel like it, there are 49 others in the series, with a great variety of tones and styles, that you can also explore. (Ratings and warnings vary from fic to fic, so remember to check the tags.)

Woe! For you've reminded me that I was subscribed to "Moebius Trip," and that apparently I've been awaiting an update since ... oh, damn, two years ago. So I guess another WiP bites the dust. Too bad, bitenomnom wrote such lovely things! (And, seriously, it's good to have them brought to mind again.)

Yes, me too! This one of my favorite parts of fandom. I've learned about all kinds of fields and skills and interests through fellow fans writing about them in fic or talking about their intersections with shows or books or movies. It's fun *and* educational. :D
