    Summary

    It’s been three years since Lord Peter Wimsey met Sherlock Holmes. Since then Peter has done a touch of amateur sleuthing, Mycroft has put him out to pasture, Bunter has been ever-present, Sherlock has died and come back to life, and Harriet Vane has remained flirtatiously (he hoped) elusive.

    Lord Peter is bored.

    Why not investigate the tardiness of his morning paper?

    Summary

    Mycroft once claimed that John wasn’t haunted by the war. How very wrong he was.

    Other men, too, are haunted by this war.

     

    *While this story borrows characters from Dorothy L. Sayers, no previous knowledge of the Lord Peter universe is necessary to understand what goes on; the setting is very firmly in BBC Sherlock. If, though, you want to know more about some of these characters I couldn’t recommend Sayers more highly (no, seriously, what are you waiting for…go read them!).

    *I have, though, in the style of Lord Peter, adapted the title from John Donne’s “Farewell to Love”.

    Summary

    The auction room was crowded with the royalty of the book world, but no-one present claimed any knowledge of Mr. D. Bredon. His sale had appeared out of nowhere, a lightning strike to the bibliophilic heart of London. Most attendees there were eager to buy, all were ready to gossip, and a few were there because they found the timing nothing short of suspicious.

    Summary

    The suggestion of sandwiches had occurred to Lord Peter in a flash of inspiration, as he considered the awkwardness of a formal supper. He had met Harriet so often on neutral ground—in the best restaurants in London, they had conversed pleasantly but dispassionately, his own voice ringing hollow with forced jocundity. But here, in his house, they could hardly sit across from one another at a table covered by a spotless white tablecloth, where all passion came to expire under the crushing yoke of polite conversation.

    Summary

    Written as a birthday present for Nineveh_uk and inspired by her doing dreadful things to Peter and Harriet on their honeymoon. This starts at the point at which they arrive at the hospital with Bunter feeling not quite his usual infallible self.

    There is very little Peter and lots of Harriet. I could have put Harriet-Peter-Bunter under Relationships but it would have given rather the wrong impression. There is also police incompetence, wilful disregard of the speed limit and handwavey chemistry.
