    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.

    Summary

    I had forgotten what this felt like; all of the waiting, the build-up to the day of the telegram’s arrival, was like a torturous climb up an impossible slope. I could see the summit, but could get there no faster. Now, released from the bonds of my humble practice and the city of London, I was soaring down the other side, arms spread wide, unknowing where my adventure would take me, except for the glorious, long-absent, beloved contents of its destination.

    Summary

    Название: 1894. Ангел-Хоронитель
    Автор: Svengaly
    Бета: Ar@lle
    Размер: миди
    Категория: преслэш
    Жанр: детектив, драма
    Рейтинг: G
    Краткое содержание: Банкира Кросби находят убитым в его собственной спальне. Убийца не пощадил и сиделку, дежурившую у кровати больного. Кто совершил убийство — обычный грабитель или мститель, явившийся из прошлого?
    Примечание: написан на летнюю ФБ 2013, команда fandom Holmes 2013
    «Просматривая три увесистых тома рукописных отчётов о нашей деятельности за 1894 год, я затрудняюсь с выбором из всего этого материала случаев, которые были бы интересны сами по себе и в то же время наиболее ярко отражали бы исключительные способности, которые сделали моего друга знаменитым. Когда я перелистываю эти страницы, то вижу отметки напротив мерзкой истории красной пиявки и ужасной смерти банкира Кросби. В них я нахожу и отчёт об эддлтонской трагедии, и о необычайном содержимом старинного британского кургана. Нашумевшее дело о наследстве Смит-Мортимера также относится к этому периоду.»
    Артур Конан Дойл. «Пенсне в золотой оправе».
