Sherlock Fic: Simple

My third food-related drabble for drabbles20in20 .  A bit different from my usual, I suppose, but I have to write 20 drabbles,  so why not?




Simple

Time of death 11:20PM. Severe rash. Swelling of the throat. Anaphylaxis. 

No peanut products in the kitchen. Peanut allergies. Scent of peanut oil on his lips confirms. 

Slippers have clearly been on his feet since 11:20AM. He was exposed while in his house. 

Faint traces of lipstick around his mouth indicate recent exchange of saliva.  Source of exposure. 

He has a practice epi-pen, but no epi-pen in his kitchen, and no mobile phone or epi-pen among the items he threw from his briefcase. Both removed by someone who knew where he kept them. 

The victim was murdered by his lover.

Ooooh, I like this. Gets into Sherlock's rapid fire thought process.
And it is a bit different but not hard to understand or anything like that.

Thanks!

I really hoped it wasn't too hard to follow... because of course I'm trying in my mind to mkae the kind of connections he'd make in his mind in such a way that you can follow them in your mind...

So many opportunities to get lost there. ;-)

Glad you enjoyed!

Thank you.

I feel the exact same way when I read other people's drabbles!

Yeah, I think so.

Are your drabbles Sherlock drabbles? Or for some other fandom?

no, mine are Buffy drabbles - with Spike as the main character. Not fun to write 5 food themed drabbles about a vampire LOL

Haha! I can imagine! I've been having enough trouble finding ways to fit food into Sherlock... and not only is he human, but also in my headcanon, he takes up cooking the way that ACD's Sherlock Holmes took up beekeeping. [I just can't see Sherlock beekeeping... so I had to find something that worked better in my mind.] So it SHOULD be easy for me...

All of which is to say, I completely sympathize. :-)
