Story: Re: Inter Office Gossip
Author: Handful of Silence
Genre: Humor, romance, epistolary
Summary: Lestrade and Donovan make a bet regarding Sherlock and John. It doesn't take long for the majority of the Yard to get involved.
Squeeing: I found this off a rec from someone else a couple of weeks ago, but I can't remember who. ^^;; Anyway, this is such a fabulous fic I'm passing the rec on.
It's hard to find epistolary fic done right, but this one hits the nails it. The voices for the characters in their emails back and forth are perfect - I can "hear" Donovan's dislike of Sherlock, how Lestrade is holding the center, and everyone else. This is just very well executed and made me laugh.

What did I say about calling Sherlock names?
