    Summary

    The year is 1816, and a recently widowed Mrs. Hudson has a handsome but infuriating young ward named Sherlock Holmes. In an effort to make a bit more money, she agrees to take in Captain John Watson, recently injured in the Napoleonic wars. Much to her surprise, Watson is much younger and more spry than anyone expected. Can Mrs. Hudson (and Sherlock's brother, Lord Mycroft) temper the scandal of two unwed men living under one roof?

    Summary

    Tell me about the dream where we pull the bodies out of the lake
    and dress them in warm clothes again.
    How it was late, and no one could sleep, the horses running
    until they forget that they are horses.
    It’s not like a tree where the roots have to end somewhere,
    it’s more like a song on a policeman’s radio,
    how we rolled up the carpet so we could dance, and the days
    were bright red, and every time we kissed there was another apple
    to slice into pieces.
    Look at the light through the windowpane. That means it’s noon, that means
    we’re inconsolable.
    Tell me how all this, and love too, will ruin us.
    These, our bodies, possessed by light.
    Tell me we’ll never get used to it.

    (Richard Siken, Scheherezade)

     

    John Watson keeps on meeting people he can't manage to keep. Sherlock Holmes seems to be no exception to this rule.

    Summary

    Thirty-five was the established boundary, Sherlock decided after extensive calculations. He would be dead by thirty-five. That was the kind of man he was. That was the kind of life he lived.

    At thirty-four, a year before his appointed rendezvous with oblivion, Sherlock met a man. Nobody special, or so he thought, an ordinary man--who soon proved extraordinary, a man who killed without hesitation to protect a life Sherlock cared nothing about.

    ***

    This is the story of how Sherlock Holmes lived long enough to grow old.

    Summary

    Six months after Sherlock didn't go off on that mission to eastern Europe after all, all is well at 221B Baker Street. Little Rachel is just beginning to sleep through the night. John and Sherlock are sleeping with each other. Charles Augustus Magnussen is alive and unwell and just about bankrupt. And Mary is nowhere in sight.

    Obviously the events of "His Last Vow" were not what they seemed. What really happened? How did we get here from there?

    Well, we're going to find out. Backwards.
    ***********
    Die-hard Harry fans are free to interpret this as a sequel to "Last Dance." However, this story stands alone.

    Summary

    Takes place two weeks after the end of Six Steps of Courtship. Sherlock and John get some surprising/happy/deeply stressful news and decide that Sherlock will have to take a break from crime solving once his 'delicate condition renders him useless.' They decide to: sneak in a high profile case before then... which gets a bit more complicated than they planned, to just 'take a look' at this smuggling ring business (What could go wrong?), all while trying to get through the five steps of nesting, which play with Sherlock's instincts and turn him into a madman of snuggling and cleaning.

    John is understandably tired.

    (Slight parallel to the Blind Banker. The cases jump all over the place in the first few chapters, but it all resolves, please be patient.)

    (Follows their second pregnancy from eight weeks to delivery. It is an enormous pile of fluff and parenting and poor life decisions that work out anyway. If you have a sweet tooth, or are in the mood for lighthearted antics, enjoy.)

    Sherlock's first Christmas back at Baker Street after The Fall wouldn't be complete without murder, mayhem, and -- of course -- John.

    (Otherwise titled 'Two Kisses and a Murder')

    (Simplified as 'The one where Molly and Greg fall in love, John goes on the hunt for the perfect Christmas gift, and Sherlock is more than a bit not good.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This story is brilliant. Original and so so brilliant. Amazingly well-written and realistic. There's one particular scene that is massively, unbelievable erotic and another very very clever and unique. All the story in itself is worth your time, so, yes, go ahead and read it.

    Summary

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a partner.
    Less universally acknowledged is that a single man in possession of very little in the way of fortune may be in want of a partner as well, but John Watson had little time or energy to devote to his own wants or needs...
    Enter one Mr Holmes...

    Please note that I gleefully take great liberties with the laws governing same sex relationships and how they are seen in the Regency Era. As in, it is not an issue at all in this story. At all.

    Summary

    Fairy tales are for those who remember how to dream; not John Watson, broken and hiding from his bleak future in a beige bedsit. But then he discovers a lamp and finds himself in the dangerous riptide of an enigmatic man whose very existence is unbelievable, murder charges against his sister, and the growing pains of feeling alive once more.

    Summary

    The story of two lifetimes told in moments.
    Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are five years old when they meet, but it will take them the next three decades to get it right.

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

    - Robert Frost
