This is for blooms84 , who gave me the plot bunny: Sherlock, John and Lestrade go ice-skating.  It was also prompted by capt_spork 's request for comment!fic yesterday, though too late to qualify.




Three Turn*





Lestrade just barely keeps his balance as Sherlock almost does the splits for the third time in half an hour.


It's like a remake of bloody Bambi, Lestrade thinks. Except that Bambi wasn't six foot three and gangly in proportion, and his centre of gravity was a fuck of a lot lower than Sherlock's.


And Bambi wasn't learning to skate on the rink outside Somerset House, with an audience of Christmas shoppers.


I blame you for this,” Lestrade grumbles.


John doesn't answer. Too busy trying to hold up his side of the bargain, and at five foot seven he's struggling with that.


It is John's fault. Getting Sherlock into crap telly was all his doing. Lestrade still doesn't understand how Sherlock got into Dancing on Ice, though. Something about a very rude judge, John said. Figures. Then Sherlock started getting impatient with the stumbling celebrities, said anyone could do better than that.


And then John bet him he couldn't.


If I break something, you are not hearing the end of this,” Lestrade warns.


Oh stop moaning Lestrade,” Sherlock says, nearly falling over again. “It's nice to do something with the two of you for a change.”


Huh,” says John, sulkily. “And which of us are you doing something with tonight, may I ask?”


Sherlock doesn't even miss a beat: “Both?”





* A three turn is a move in figure skating which is used to change direction.

ETA: Following on from the last line of this fic, NC-17 rated sequel, Triple Jump (warnings for sexual content, threesome, pwp and a certain amount of ambushing), is now here:

Squee! I can imagine John's pouty little face, and Lestrade's grumpy one, and Sherlock flailing on ice needs to be a fanart. :D And then it takes a turn for the hot in the very last sentence. (Which should also be a fanart... *dreams*) Lovely! :D
Oct. 5th, 2010 08:07 am (UTC)
oh thank you! always lovely to get a squee! *beams*
do you do fanart? I am so incapable of drawing anything it's not even funny. would love to see this done, though.
there will be a sequel to the last sentence, sort of, soonish...
Oct. 5th, 2010 09:23 am (UTC)
Sadly, I don't, or at least nothing beyond stuff for the Fanart That Looks Drawn By a 5 YO Contest, but I'm fervently hoping I can inspire some fanartists or conjure them from thin air. *g*
Oct. 5th, 2010 05:19 pm (UTC)
I hope you can too - that would be great! thanks again for the lovely comment. *g*

thank you very much! glad you enjoyed it... I like the idea of them there!
Oct. 12th, 2010 05:00 pm (UTC)
You mean there's actually something Sherlock can't do?! John has to have known what would happen after that bet. ;)

Oct. 12th, 2010 05:12 pm (UTC)
oh I think there may be a few things he can't do! and more fic to write once we find out what they are. *grins*
