    Summary

    Of all these little meta digressions, this is more truly an essay and piece of lit-crit. I had a chunk of last night and this morning to think about the structure and nature of how a story is told, and what your perception of the story does to your choices of through-lines. This is a lit-crit essay focusing on *Sherlock*, and using Dorothy Sayers and Agatha Christie as paradigmatic examples of two different approaches to the development of narrative spines and through-lines. Meta. Essay. Lit-crit. Analysis. Dry. Somewhat academic. Consider yourselves thoroughly warned. My inner honor student shineth forth.

    Summary

    or, The Adventure of the Red Shoes

    UK Ballet principal dancer Sherlock Holmes and assistant rugby coach John Watson met and fell in love as ambitious, optimistic teenagers. Twenty years on, they are entering midlife, facing the break-down of their bodies and the ending of their careers, and contemplating what the future holds for two middle-aged men forced to start over. With a frightening crisis unfolding at the Ballet, Sherlock must balance the demands of his career, his friendships, and his marriage with his own struggle against bitterness and discontent, while John takes a long-overdue glance from the outside, in, and stutter-steps toward making a kind of peace.

    Summary

    What if you could touch someone and bring them back to life?

    Sherlock Holmes, the Detective, is a seemingly ordinary man with an extraordinary gift: he can bring the dead back to life with a single touch. This impossible - well, make that this highly improbable - gift, along with Sherlock's incredibly deductive mind, have made it possible for him to become the most successful detective anywhere.
    But of course, every gift like this comes with a catch. In this case, a deadly and time-dependent catch.
    One touch gives life, the second touch takes it away again forever.
    And should the dead remain distinctly not dead for more than a minute, then someone else has to die.

    With a gift like this, there have to be rules, and Sherlock Holmes has abided by these rules all his life.
    The most important Rule?
    Caring about people gets them killed.
    Therefore, caring is not an advantage.

    … But every rule has an exception.

    A Sherlock-Pushing Daisies crossover.

    Summary

    (noun): an inconvenience that detracts from the usefulness of something. Sherlock has always been aware of these human feelings and emotions and he's always tried to appear as if he was above such things, but he could never, as hard as he tried, get rid of them. She brought out the human in him and that put him at a dangerous disadvantage.

    Summary

    “We're all a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness – and call it love.” Two bookish, endearingly awkward mages discover they have more in common than just a shared friendship with a certain ex-templar.

    Summary

    “But how can other people tell who you are on the inside? How can they see?”

     

    “They can’t, Sherlock, that’s the point.”

    “Well, then they shouldn’t be allowed to tell you what you are. It’s stupid, it doesn’t make any sense.”

    Sherlock knows a lot of things. He knows where plants get their green colour from, what the first element on the periodic table is, that DNA is the shortened form of the term deoxyribonucleic acid, how long it usually takes his mould cultures to grow to a respectable size and that Mycroft is his brother. He doesn't understand why people keep disagreeing with that last one, though.

    Summary

    In the previous installment of this story, John Watson sold his soul to revive the deceased Sherlock Holmes. In return for what, you ask? Oh, just his soul.
    Jim Moriarty's going to have fun with his new toy.

    If you are not a fan of Supernatural don't worry, I'm just taking inspiration from the storyline of Dean's time in Hell. There will be very few Supernatural elements other than that.
