Title: Hero of the Reichenbach
Fandom: BBC Sherlock
Rating G
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson
Length: 100 words
Alternate Link: AO3
Author's Notes: Written for the watsons_woes JWP Prompt #18: Honored With a Star. A character earns or is awarded some honor. Unbeta'd.
Summary: Sherlock attends under protest.

Lights blaze bright and hot on the stage during the awards ceremony. Sherlock looks out over the press, vague shapes eager and predatory.

It wasn't like this before. Somehow John's blog, his silly, sentimental blog, has turned them into celebrities. John seems delighted by their increasing fame and the corresponding number of paying cases.

The director, finally out of platitudes, hands Sherlock a small gift-wrapped box. Diamond cufflinks. Dull. John clears his throat. Sherlock bares his teeth and tries to twist it into a smile.

There is only one reward Sherlock has ever sought for a job well done. More Work.
