    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes has never liked being touched.

    There are approximately 1,500 bacteria that live in a square inch of an average person's hand, approximately 5,000 germ cells, and and far too many unknown materials residing on the epidermis at any given time. The transfer of such materials is easy enough through simple touch, but that was never what made Sherlock Holmes so anti-touching.

    Sherlock Holmes just really, really doesn't like being touched.

    (But for some reason when John does it it's okay.)

    Summary

    Holmes has observed much of Watson's habits and tastes over time, which is why it surprises him when his friend objects strangely to a folk song sung at the conclusion of a case. Disturbed by the Doctor's unexpected display of emotion, Holmes becomes determined to lift his spirits by any means necessary, with mixed results.

    Summary

    "I was breathless with nerves and divided in my own mind. At one moment I was sure we could not continue as we had been. I must speak, or lose Holmes' trust by my silence. The next moment I felt I could never speak unless Holmes himself invited me to. Surely he must have recognized my affection; if he had not mentioned it, he would not wish me to."

    The idea for this story partially inspired by Random_Nexus' beautiful The Bee Grove. Highly recommended: http://archiveofourown.org/works/8027908/chapters/18381751

    Summary

    No fewer than three times by the winter of 1883 had I heard Sherlock Holmes disparage the ways of lovers and their irrational tendencies toward writing letters. With this often and loudly-expressed opinion in mind, I was very surprised indeed to find a stack of unsent, unsealed letters in a drawer in his desk.

    Summary

    What if ACD Watson and BBC Watson switched places . . .
    “Imposter!” Hands clenching the lapels of John’s coat, Holmes shoved him anew.
    “Yes!” John agreed, nodding, and then grimacing. “Sort of!”

    Summary

    Mycroft felt his mouth go dry, not at all liking where his deductions were starting to take him. "Your favourite colour is blue. You've been stealing looks at my blue tie, at my blue jacket, at the blue teapot, always drawn to the hue as thought taking some sort of comfort in it. Blue is the opposite of red. You see a considerable amount of red in your line of work. You are about to see a lot of red very soon and you are instinctively balking at the prospect."

    Harry Watson comes to London on business and make amends with her estranged brother. The thing is, you can't throw a Holmes in the mix and expect everything to go smoothly.

    Summary

    Author’s Note: This was my first attempt at a Sherlock Holmes story, when I had just discovered the fandom and absolutely fell in love with. While I probably committed every cliché regarding the time of “the return”, I was drawn to that moment and this was my attempt to define it. I hope you enjoy.

    The silence stretched, ached. Then, "Yes, Holmes?" Watson said shakily.

    "I'd do anything for you. Risk anything." He watched the uncertainty passing over Watson's features. He did not have words for this.
