    Summary

    "When I first met John Watson, I had just moved to Baker Street and he had been home from Afghanistan nearly six months. We'd both been evicted about the same time: I for a disagreement with my landlord about chemical experiments and he for a plain and simple lack of cash. My brother had picked up the pieces for me; his had not."

    In which Watson turns to prostitution after his return from Afghanistan, like plenty of other British soldiers, but of course Holmes finds him anyway.

    "A bit of scarlet" is late 19th/early 20th century homosexual slang for sex with a soldier. OBVIOUSLY.

    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.

    What if ACD Watson and BBC Watson switched places . . .

    “Yes!” John agreed, nodding, and then grimacing. “Sort of!”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Holmes is happy to request the services of Dr. John Watson during some of his cases, an invalided, injured soldier from Her Majesty's Army. The good doctor has helped him apprehend criminals a number of times, but takes little recompense for it. Holmes doesn't understand why Watson's pride has him refusing very much in the way of assistance, but he makes his way in the world by providing with his company for a short while.
