    Summary

    I have resolved to be open and honest in this, my confession, and so I shall be. If you will read to the end of this letter, despite all I have done, I would be most grateful to you.

    It is an excessively queer feeling to be certain that one has at last met one's counter, but upon shaking hands to have one's wrist remain stubbornly blank.

    Summary

    A new client wants Sherlock Holmes to investigate the fall of the House of Usher. Doctor Watson ponders the use of forenames.

    Excerpt: Holmes had held up the dagger and grinned at me, pushing away the hair that had fallen into his eyes and smearing muck across his face in the process. The steel blade had glittered in the sunlight as he turned it to read the inscription around the ornate hilt.

    “Best not to commit crimes with family heirlooms,” he had observed.

    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


    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.
