sherlock fic: an avalanche of detour signs [molly hooper/greg lestrade, r]

Uh, right. So, I was going to put something all eloquent about my process here, but honestly, I accidentally wrote a Molly Hooper novel and I'm REALLY tired, so <3 Fic is posted exclusively at Ao3, because it's 56,000 words long and I just couldn't bear to make six LJ posts.

All my love and thanks to Marie, who drew the EXTRAORDINARY art that goes along with this story and cheered me along through the frankly insane process of writing it; to leupagus, who told me to go for it when I said "So I'm thinking about writing a massive Molly Hooper story,"; and, of course, to postcardmystery, who not only kept me going as always, but tirelessly corrected all my terrible Americanisms, did like 99% of my research for me and explained to me the--as it turns out, significant--differences between grilled cheese, cheese toasties, and cheese on toast. This was a labor of love, and it wouldn't have happened without you guys <3

Title: An Avalanche of Detour Signs
Pairing: Molly Hooper/Greg Lestrade [Molly Hooper/Jim Moriarty, unrequited Molly Hooper/Sherlock Holmes]
Rating: R
Wordcount: 56,053
Warnings: This fic covers the entirety of Molly's experience for both seasons of Sherlock, and thus deals with the aftermath of her relationship with Jim Moriarty. As such, there are some sexual trauma themes in this story; if, for your own self-care, that is not the kind of thing you should be reading, please give this story a pass.
Summary: In which Molly Hooper gets a job, gets a degree, breaks a heart, has her heart broken, falls in love, keeps a secret, saves a life, runs a morgue, falls apart, pulls it together, and finds exactly what she didn't know she was looking for--not necessarily in that order.

Read it here, folks.
