    Summary

    'Sherlock scowled, “This is the thanks I receive for coming to fetch you.”

    “I never asked you to come get me!” Violet shouted as he slammed the bedroom door...'

    ~*~*~

    Hello and thank you for waiting so patiently for Part 4!

    Slight change in format; I've made the chapters shorter, but that means there are more chapters. The plan is to post once a week until this fic is out of WIP hell. Then I'll post twice a week (real life allowing...)

    There is another fandom in this fic that's not tagged because of spoilers.

    Huge thanks and love to my beta cadoganwest, who betas with a migraine. You don't get much more BAMF than that. XOXO.

    SO - let's start this story off with a trigger warning for violence and a promise of smut!

    Thank you for sticking with me and this story for so long and all the comments, kudos, bookmarks and subscriptions :^)

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes, the world’s only Consulting Equestrian Expert, is the individual called when horse owners are out of their depth. At the behest of his elder brother, Sherlock travels to Amarillo, Texas, to investigate why a valuable bucking stallion has seemingly gone berserk for no reason and killed his trainer. The local authorities suspect the owner of fraud and possible animal abuse, but Mycroft sees parallels to an unsolved case from the 1980s wherein a racehorse killed a groom. Complicating the situation is John Watson: bronco rider, rodeo veterinarian and one of case’s primary suspects…

    Or, to put it another way: Rodeolock AU! Sherlock Holmes and John Watson running around Texas, USA in cowboy boots, Wranglers blue jeans and cowboy hats. 'Nuff said.

    WIP: tends to update roughly once every two to three months.

    Summary

    In the last days of the First World War, Dr. Watson returns from the service for which he departed in "His Last Bow," and looks for a new kind of work. He joins Dr. Arthur Hurst in his pioneering treatment of shell-shocked soldiers. But their work on the forefront of medical research, locked in battle against the destruction of the war, is disrupted by violent death. In addition to the obvious danger near at hand, there is the risk that this will discredit Hurst’s unusual methods. Dr. Watson does the only thing he can do: he calls in Holmes. The case will require their joint expertise, and all the wisdom of their shared experience.

    This fic includes lots of emotional conversations, history, architecture, parlor music, and literary allusions. It is appearing in fortnightly installments (every other Sunday), and should be published in its entirety by February 2018.

    Summary

    I started this story as an original m/m work but it kept stalling due to a) the characters not being the right gender for the fit of the plot and b) I really wanted to write an 'opposite' story to the one I wrote in 'A Case Of Bad Diction', where the Mystrade is set in modern times but with the characters completely shuffled and changed into an original shape. There are many published authors who have taken their love of Doyle's work and used it more as a writing prompt than a place of canonical severity (Sherlock Holmes vs. The Martians, anyone?). So...Here we are!

    Mycroft Holmes, professional thief, is annoyed by her girlfriend's distraction over a set of human luggage sitting in a St. Mary's morgue. That said luggage was being used to mule hard drugs into London by the Crown Cartel is an added irritation. All Mycroft really wants is for DI Grace Lestrade to play house with her and revel in her Belgravia estate and all its pretty baubles, but even this is marred by her post-modernist neighbours with their chrome and glass monstrosity next door. Worse still, they are neglecting their borzoi. Who knew dog thieving and corpses stuffed with drugs would go hand in hand?

    Summary

    A sequel to Neil Gaiman's brilliant "A Study in Emerald," this explores the development of Holmes & Watson's relationship as they begin their work as Restorationists in a London ruled by the Old Ones.

    "I forbore to mention that we were sitting under a pile of ancient quilts in an under-heated garret, fugitives from the law, fed only by the charity of a mysterious but pragmatic Scotswoman. It would have seemed tactless in the face of his boundless confidence."

    Summary

    The snow was falling again, heavier and larger now, and up in the trees the ravens complained to each other about the state of it. Greg rifled in his coat for his emergency stash, then shook out a cigarette and his lighter.

    "One more, please," said Mycroft.

    Greg peered at him. "Really?"

    "It's been a disconcerting day."

    As far as Greg was concerned, the only Dickensian thing likely was the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come manifesting in the fireplace and ushering them all to hell.

    Summary

    221B Baker St is restored to its former glory, clients are once again welcome, and Sherlock and John continue their detective work as if nothing has changed - or has it?

    The case of the very strange behaviour of Mrs Warren’s new lodger seems harmless enough to start with. But before they know it, Sherlock and John are caught up in the web of a ruthless crime syndicate that is only waiting to turn their hunters into the hunted.

    A post-season 4 extra episode, inspired by the montage at the end of “The Final Problem”.

    Rated M for mature themes and violence.
    Gen; no pairings.

    Summary

    John's old rugby mate is now coaching for Cambridge, and their star player has gone missing before a big match. John knows the case is only a 4 (maybe a 5 at best), and is just hoping it's interesting enough to distract a dangerously bored Sherlock. But Sherlock is suspiciously willing to take it. "The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter" by Arthur Conan Doyle updated in the style of BBC's Sherlock. [COMPLETE]

    Summary

    For the Watson's Woes Advent prompt, "Lessons and Carols." Holmes loves music, Watson loves Holmes, and the author indulges her feelings about liturgical history and medieval music. As with other things I write for Holmes and Watson, this can be read as gen or slash.

    Summary

    Well, this is basically a ramble, inspired by a very angry person who believes that discussing any view but hers is somehow rude to her. So - I took her at her word and decided to toss some ideas out there and if you don't like them or see things in a different way - I am all about the fun of discussion. This is how I perceive some things on this show. To begin - a monograph on why Mary is not necessarily a good person but that she isn't an evil ogre either. I will see how this goes and if I get a few sane people who also like to share ideas rather than spew vitriol then we will continue on with such topics as Mycroft is an unsung hero and John is not a cuddly man. Please feel free to disagree but just keep it in the realm of decorum. Thanks for reading.

    Summary

    В Лондоне планируется крупная акция против джинджеризма - флэшмоб рыжих. Дело это важное и нужное, вот только почему его проводят те, кто прежде никогда не думал на темы дискриминации кого-либо? Шерлока Холмса очень интересует этот вопрос...

    Summary

    While dealing with his mad brother and the psychiatrist profiting from Sherlock's delusions, his Honour, Judge Mycroft Holmes works closely with his live-in lover, Inspector Gregory Lestrade, in finding justice for an innocent young female prostitute accused of murder.

    NOTE: This is an original Sherlock Holmes story, much in the vein of what I started with 'A Most Delicate Condition' and using that universe within this story. I do have it planned out at fifteen chapters and I hope to have a chapter a week put up on a regular basis. While I am doing a lot of research for this, if you read this and do find a historical nag, please let me know!

    I hope you enjoy it! I'm addicted to Mystrade and I'm hoping this will fuel more!

    Summary

    “We are healthy men. I have urges. You have urges. It is completely normal.”
    “Our urges for one another are not normal,” he stated flatly.

    In the dispatch box of private writing of John H. Watson, M.D., many of the doctor’s musings make it apparent that, despite his clear instructions and stern admonishments, the relationship between him and the famous detective did not always stay in their rooms. At times, in fact, the carelessness of Holmes caused rifts between them. And then there were times that the doctor himself accidentally risked exposing their not only deviant but illegal relations to the world.
