    Summary

    John Watson is a soulsurgeon damaged by war and by caring too much -- if there is such a thing. Sherlock Holmes is struggling with the effects of a curse that bids fair to end his days as the world’s only consulting detective unless a way is found to lift it.

    ...But Sherlock doesn’t believe in curses. Even assuming that he learns to believe in John... will that be enough to save him?

    New! Take a look at the beautiful final-scene fanart from Sweetlittlekitty: "John, do you dance? The waltz, specifically?" ...Thank you so much, Kitty! (And thank you too, Mysterious Individual who commissioned it! You're wonderful!)

    Summary

    John Watson, the new Earl of Saughton, is madly in love with the beautiful Mary Morstan. But he has returned from the Peninsular War to find his family on the brink of ruin and his ancestral home mortgaged to the hilt. He has little choice when he is introduced to Mycroft Holmes, a civil servant of apparently unlimited wealth and no social ambitions for himself - but with his eyes firmly fixed on a suitable match for his only brother, the unorthodox and irascible Omega Sherlock Holmes. Can John forget the woman he loved and find happiness with a man so very different from his lost love?

    Summary

    Dark, cold, enigmatic, throwing insults left, right and centre; Sherlock Holmes is the epitome of an outcast. He's the guy who sits in the corner of the classroom, or in the depths of the school library, writing away in that mysterious book of his. No one knows who he is, what his name his. He is anonymous. He's just that rich freak who'll tell you your whole life story in front of the entire school.

    John Watson, however, is one of the kindest people you'll ever meet. A polar opposite to the boy-whose-name-no-one-knows-'Holmes' (if that's even his real name); he's warm, friendly and empathetic, the kind of person who everyone can be friends with. He doesn't know why he finds himself being drawn to the lonesome boy in the corner with the book, the boy rumoured to be a psychopath.

    In a world where everyone has a Guardian Animal, a sentinel to guide you through life, these two don't. Yet. But when a life-changing phenomenon brings this unlikely duo together, they discover, with a little help, that maybe they aren't so different after all.

    Summary

    In the post-Trojan War Bronze Age of ancient Greek myth, an enigmatic new God with a gift for deduction is sent to put a stop to the lifesaving ways of a warrior-prince with healing hands. But suddenly Prince Iaon's moved in with the Consulting God and they've started solving crimes together. And what follows after that is... most unexpected.

    Warning! Contains: a lot of Greek wine, embedded casefic, explicit industrial-strength smut (starting around ch. 19), the birth of firearms discipline and other freeform but entirely justified anachronism, body parts (some still splendidly, if not magnificently, in use), and True Love tested to destruction… and final triumph.

    Just posted: Ch. 33. The Consulting God and Prince Iaon head to Egypt to begin a perilous deep-cover investigation of the ancient Greek world's most notorious mass murder... knowing that if they're discovered, they're next on the list.

    (A Holmsie Award winner for Best Longfic / Slow Burn)

    "No," his mother whispered into her palm. "This temple has never asked for a sacrifice!" He didn't know what that word meant, but he understood the sound of fear. His little heart began to pound in his chest and his breath shortened, his body going rigid.
