My life as a Geeky Nerd: Better than Sherlock Holmes

Book 1 in the series, My Life as a Geeky Nerd.
Clara Brown is the typical nerd/geek. She's an expert in her fandoms, she writes on movellas and she's the one you came count on to put her hand up in class. However, when she comes home one day and looks in her geek box, nothing will be the same ever again!
The Sherlock storyline and characters are from the BBC series Sherlock and the Young Sherlock Holmes series by Andrew Lane. All extra characters and plotlines are assossiated with Louise McBear.


1. Prologue

I just assumed I was an ordinary girl. Well, not ordinary - I was the only girl geek/nerd in my class with only a few other people, but they would never know as much as me. It was the new year of 2014 and I was the most excited I'd been since November. Matt Smith had just ditched Doctor Who; I had to wait until April for the new series of that and Once Upon a Time; there was nothing else from Merlin and Harry Potter (they were gone). Things just weren't looking up for a geeky girl like me. Of course, then came Sherlock.

Being too young when his death had occurred, this would be my first episode of the BBC drama. My reaction? That's obvious - I fell in love with it from the first word. So after the episode, I went on BBC and Movellas to find out everything I could about this high-functioning sociopath and his best friend. Granted, I already had extensive knowledge of Mr Holmes himself, due to the novels by Arthur Conan Doyle and Andrew Lane, however, I soon knew enough to call myself an obsessed Sherlockian. I had assumed that this would just be one of my geeky obsessions, but boy I was wrong.

My name is Clara Brown and this is how I became better than Sherlock Holmes.
