Ten Things You Don't Know About Dimmock1. His real name is Iain. Iain Henry Dimmock. For some reason, he doesn't really like his name, and the only person who has ever called him Iain on a regular basis is Ryan. Even his parents call him Dimmock, something he never fully understood but always accepted.
2. He hates peas. Give him broccoli, spinach, even brussel sprouts- just not peas.
3. Dimmock's rubbish at it, but he loves playing rugby. Once a year the Yard has a rugby match. Lestrade and Gregson are captains. John Watson's an honourary member and is always picked first. Dimmock is always chosen last. Somehow it always works out that he's on Lestrade and John's team, which mak
JohnMy words gush out like oil from a barrel- dark, toxic, bitter. They spill all over the couch and slosh onto the floor. I desperately want to make them stop, to scoop them all up and pour them back inside so I can hide them away in the space where all my other unwanted words go, but they keep on flowing, filling up the room, drowning me. I'm scared they'll drown John, too. I try to tell him that. Try to tell him to ignore what I'm saying, to leave me alone, to just leave, but he won't have any of that.
Because he's John- steady, dependable John- and without me telling him he seems to know exactly what I need. He pulls me into his arms as read
AftermathIt takes several moments for him to realize that there's blood on the floor. Where did it come from? Is it Lestrade's? Oh god, he hopes not. He blinks. There's something wet on his lips. Dimmock looks down to see the front of his shirt soaked in blood.
Oh... the blood is his own.
He feels like an unobservant idiot for not seeing it sooner- he tries not to think about the fact that Sherlock would say that was exactly the case had he been there. Had he been alive.
Thankfully Sally- Donovan is there to help take him away from those thoughts. She kneels beside him on the floor and has him tip his head forward so that the blood doesn't run down
The Man with the Sad EyesOnce upon a time in a land not-so-far away there lived a man with sad eyes. He was handsome, kind, and brave. He wasn’t rich, but he had everything he needed. He wasn’t famous, per se, but he had a good job where he protected people. The only thing he wanted but didn’t have was someone to love.
Then one morning, in the most unexpected of ways, a ray of Sunshine appeared.
After that, everything seemed to be brighter. It was a gradual change, yes, and there were many times where things seemed to get darker instead of lighter, but nonetheless it was a change for the better- he would much rather face a thousand dark days with
Texting: Part OneSH: Bored.
JW: I'm sorry. Pester someone else. I'm working.
JW: What do you want me to do?
SH: Something entertaining.
JW: And what qualifies as "entertaining" to you?
SH: I don't know, just do something. I'm bored. Or find me another serial murder case or something. My mind is stagnant, John, stagnant.
JW: Why don't you ask Lestrade or your homeless network?
SH: They're boring.
JW: And I'm somehow not?
JW: How is that?
SH: They're stupid.
JW: You think I am intelligent and Lestrade isn't?
SH: No, I think you're simply more intelligent. He is not.
JW: I see... Well, flattery, intended or not, will get you nowhe
Seven More Things You Don't Know About Dimmock11. Growing up, Dimmock's favourite possessions were his red tricycle- then bicycle, once he got older- and the slingshot Ryan made for him. His parents sold his bicycle and tricycle long ago, but he still keeps his slingshot under his pillow.
12. He knows that Sherlock has his own way of doing things, and that way usually works, but that doesn't make the man any less of a bastard sometimes.
13. When he was six, Dimmock decided to run away from home. He doesn't remember why he did it, but he thinks it was something about not wanting to take out the trash. Dimmock had taken Hank, his slingshot, some spare change, and a ham sandwich and rode
Texting: Part TwoJW: Sherlock are you up yet? I need you to bring my briefcase to the clinic. It's on my bed.
SH: Ugh. Why so early!
JW: Early? It's noon! Are you feeling well?
SH: I can barely open my eyes, the sun is giving me a migraine-headache, and my arms ache. I'm tired. Get your bag yourself. I'm going back to sleep.
JW: Want me to bring you anything? I'm on my lunch break. I can go to Belladonna's if you like.
SH: No, just leave me alone to die.
JW: Don't be dramatic. I'm coming home to check on you. What are your symptoms?
SH: I'm not being dramatic, I really am dying! I can't breathe and my nose is on fire on top of that. I can't speak for m
Texting: Part ThreeSH: Getting milk
JW: You? Get milk? Are you feeling well?
SH: Yes I was just passing the store and I thought we needed milk. I bought four gallons.
JW: Thank you... please leave on whole entire gallon free from experimentation. And I don't mean between the four jugs- I want one whole jug to myself!
SH: But I've gotten them for a purpose. What do you mean leave a whole gallon? I need them.
JW: I should have known. You only told me because you didn't want me to use them, didn't you?
SH: Yes. They are in the fridge. I will be back later. For now, Lestrade has me at a new case. Solved easily, leave my milk alone.
JW: Next to the severed he
If I Die Before I WakeSeptember 27, 2010
To whomever happens to find this:
So... Today one of ours- that is, the Yard's- was murdered. I didn't see it happen, but I was the first one to find the body. Bloody mess, I'll tell you now- no pun intended.
That's not the point of this letter, though. The point is that it made me realize that I really am risking my life doing this job. Not that I'm constantly in danger- pushing papers isn't really life threatening, after all- but once in awhile I'm actually in harm's way. It's a rather sobering thought, actually.
And thus I figured it'd be a good thing to write a will- not the official will. I got that done years ago,
Six More Things You Don't Know About Dimmock33. Dimmock isn't really a morning person. In fact, if he doesn't have his caffeine fix, then it's almost like he's half asleep. His co-workers always find this amusing, even when there is collateral damage involved (he once accidentally broke the copy machine, and another time spilled a stack of papers that had just been filed). The others called incidences like these "Dimmock damage," but it got rather cumbersome to say, so they shortened it to "dimmage."
34. When they were kids, Ryan always told Dimmock that he put his socks on the wrong feet, but Dimmock could never tell if his brother was telling the truth or just messing with him. When
Nine More Things You Don't Know About Dimmock18. Whenever he goes to a restaurant, he orders the tallest glass of chocolate milk he can. If he can't, then he sticks with water
19. He gets migraines. Really bad ones. He still isn't sure how he has gotten this far in the Force with this, but he knows it's in part due to Lestrade. The man always covers for him, and Dimmock wishes he could pay him back somehow though knows he probably never will.
20. He makes it a point to go visit Ryan's family at least once a year. Even if he can't afford it, even if he doesn't have the time, he still goes anyway, preferably for Christmas. He'd much rather spend it with them than sit at home alone watch
StarsLestrade loves the stars.
His father taught him all about them when he was a child. He loves to share his love of the stars with people he cares about, too. He’s taken Sherlock all the way out to the country to see them, but not Iain yet, so one day after work when the young man looks especially run down, Greg takes him aside and tells them man that they’re going on a trip.
Dimmock gives the older man his signature ‘What the hell are you doing? This is so gay’ look, but Greg just ushers him into the cab and gives the driver a slip of paper saying where they’re going and to keep it a surprise for their passenger
45 Things You Don't Know About Greg Lestrade1 . He's a musician at heart.
2 . For every moment he wishes he was Sherlock - and there's quite a few - there's a moment he thanks God he isn't, because he's seen what that man's gone through.
3 . He can sing. Like, well. Very well. But it's rare you'll hear him outside of the shower.
4 . He has a thing for redheads. But he's never actually dated one. He just stares at them on the street. But not in a creepy way.
5 . He has a motorcycle. He's been riding since he was a teenager, but he hardly touches it now. Maybe he should.
6 . He can eat an entire cheesecake in one sitting. It was a bet so the calories don't count.
7 . Whenever he ma
Four More Things You Don't Know About Dimmock-Dimmock isn't a cat person. He never has been. But somehow he finds himself feeding the stray cat with big blue eyes and matted, grey fur that sometimes sits on the fire escape outside his flat. He knows he shouldn't- it'll only encourage the darn thing to come back, and he might risk actually bonding with it. He also knows that it's too late, but he doesn't acknowledge that bit.
-He sleeps with a lot of blankets, even in the summer. He likes the weight of them. Makes him feel secure, somehow. Though for whatever reason, he always has to have his right foot sticking out of the covers. He can't explain it, but that's how things are.
4 and 1|2 More Things You Don't Know About Dimmock39. The Yard throws a Halloween Party every year. Sometimes they have a theme. Three years ago it was "Decades Day," which was fine and dandy except that Dimmock confused "decades" with "centuries," which is why he arrived in a King Louis XIV costume, wig and all. One of his friends from school owns a costume shop, and she had been pestering him to wear it for the longest time.
Needless to say, he was the laughing stock of the Force for a while even if he did end up winning the contest by almost unanimous vote. Dimmock was the only one who voted otherwise, and that was for Donovan's rather sexy eighties garb.
40. He has never had the desire
