    Summary

    Painted for Holmestice December 2015, for the fabulous Gardnerhill. I adored her ancient Polynesian/Hawaiian Holmes AU "Wakakana Koa" and wanted to paint something that captured the magic and beauty of that story.

    This painting depicts Holamaka Kahuna and Wakakana Koa returning home to their island after their mid-ocean encounter, propelled in their canoe by two sharks.

    The title is a traditional Hawaiian saying - I spent several hours poring over various Hawaiian-English dictionaries looking for a title that felt right, and stumbled across this saying, which was so perfect I just *had* to use it. Many happy Holmestice returns to Gardnerhill!

    Summary

    Detective Inspector Greg Lestrade is a closet Scottish history buff and has traveled to Scotland on his first holiday in several years to participate in war re-enactments.

    Summary


    The only uncovered flat surface in the room is the bed. Even on John’s bedside table, the alarm clock and his computer sit atop stacks of the books he unpacked yesterday. He hadn’t intended to unpack books, not until he’d actually cleared a path to the bookcase, but...he’d been hoping he’d find his missing pants at the bottom of the box.

    Possibly, the state of the room says something deep and existential about the state of his life, the boxes both clutter and metaphor for the stagnation through which he wades everyday. Since he moved back into 221B, he’s felt as though he’s in limbo. His life and his heart, still packed up in boxes. Balanced, precariously, on a knife edge, waiting. Waiting. For what, he doesn’t know.

    Summary

    DI Greg Lestrade lives with his two partners (he refuses to call them boyfriends), and a little girl that one of his partner's had from a previous marriage. Greg has two children as well, but he can only see them on their birthdays and on New Years. It's only two days before Christmas and everything is fine in the Holmes-Lestrade-Watson household.
