Oh my God, you lovely people, I was not expecting that response.

Awww, thanks, everyone! Hugs to all of you in return. I’m about halfway through my day—finally! Just eight more hours until I can curl up with my fluffy pillow and sleeeeep. Let’s hope no more car alarms go off tonight :-P

Author’s Note: (Found this lingering on my hard disk since last October - and thought I’d gift it to your Day. Happy Sherstrade!)
Imp’s Note: Thank you so much, my dear! This is absolutely lovely. Enjoy, everyone!
Lestrade was looking at the Thing on his desk.
First sight, after a dubious blink, had assured him that the evidence was a white pumpkin. A vast, enormous, is-this-even-legal pumpkin, its flesh scooped out and replaced by Lestrade’s old lighter (clue number one) alight, its rotund sides peppered here and there with small nicotine patches inked out. (His. Clue number two).
