    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 radical 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 radical methods, and shake his confidence in his ability to cure those who so desperately need his help. 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.

    Summary

    Harry said the baby's name again. “It’s perfect.”
    “Just like its daddy,” Louis told him. He placed a hand on top of his stomach and rubbed small circles into it.
    “Just like its papa,” Harry replied.
    “There you go again, being all cheesy.”
    “You started it.”
    “Yeah, I guess I did this time.”
    Harry leaned in to kiss Louis softly on the lips. As Louis kissed him back, all he could think about was how lucky he was. He had a loving boyfriend, a baby on the way and a house that he could have only ever dreamed about.
    At this point in his life, just a year and a half ago, everything he had was all just that – a dream.
    ---
    Or, the one where Louis and Harry are having a baby and Louis is afraid that he isn’t ready, until he remembers how he and Harry first fell in love.

    Summary

    People like him, like them, did not feature in most of the stories he was told when John was Johnny in Ireland. When he was a younger man, John often felt as if he did not exist. Even when there were characters like him, they were all mirrors, different versions, alternative universes that John did not want to exist. Back then, in the youth, in the army, when he returned to London, John was only good at surviving, so he lived and learnt.

    The most important lesson was what he learned in the Dead Letter Office: you can tell your own story. You can author your own life. There is no script to stick to, which is fucking terrifying. And quite exciting. And fucking terrifying.

    Now, maybe some parts of the world still have no conception of what our, their, love is - but John Watson, ex-soldier, ex-head of the Dead Letter Office, partner of Sherlock Holmes, is their own storyteller. He can write their own good ending.
