    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

    Moriarty is back and Sherlock decides the only safe place for Molly is at Baker Street. Of course, neither of them are prepared for the reality of being together round the clock, or what is in store for them courtesy of the Irish psychopath.

    This picks up right where His Last Vow leaves off so if you haven't seen Series 3, I suggest you don't read.

    Summary

    Mycroft promised himself he would never love.

    Happiness was overrated, and placing all of it in a person was stupid, because that person could be taken away from him and leave him empty, broken... He couldn't allow himself to feel a thing; he became an Ice statue.

    Gregory promised himself he would never give up.

    Happiness was something everybody deserved, he knew he did and he wanted it. He just didn't know if he could keep searching forever, trying to keep the smile on place as years passed by and his string became endless. He couldn't give up; he became a dreamer.

    Summary

    “You’re not a dragonfly.”

    “Silly boy! I can’t fly at all!” Her voice tinkles like chimes in the breeze. She walks into his outstretched palm and does a tiny turn for him. “No wings for me.”

    He raises his hand to eye level, accidentally knocking the little creature over in his rush. “I-I’m sorry, are you okay?” He asks, as she staggers to her feet only to be toppled over again.

    “You don’t have to yell!” She says, leaning back on her hand as she rubbed the top of her head. “What’s your name?”

    “Sherlock.” He mumbles with a shy grin.

    “I’m Molly.”

    Summary

    Sherlock's death had left her broken and confused. Mycroft Holmes is left to help pick up the pieces and to try to keep her alive. With the return of Sherlock Holmes, he believes that everything would return to normal. But, it doesn't. Sherlock is still so focused to uncover the mysteries behind perhaps one of the only women he's ever showed any compassion toward, that he neglects to see just how much he's actually hurting her.

    Summary

    They know who he looks like, but Tom is thankfully vacant. She thought she almost saw him question it, but it was gone as soon as it started. And she was glad that no one mentioned it, especially him.

    "Yeah, I’ve moved on…"

    Maybe if she said it enough times, it’d be true.

    Summary

    Touch had never been so vital to him as it was now, her teeth scraping down his jaw line and capturing his bottom lip before he pulled her in for a hungry kiss. Their teeth clacked together hurriedly, and he tried to tell himself to be gentle with her. Gentle for her.

    Summary

    So much faith in one man, tossed aside because he can’t find a new habit.

    Trust that he’d earned from her, tarnished by his own hands.

    If she rolled up his sleeves, she knew she would see the tracks, but she can’t she just isn’t that strong. She wants the believe in Sherlock Holmes. Believe in the man she knows he is and not the abusing druggie before her.

    The third hit is for herself.

    She knows it and he does too.

    Summary

    He feels the restraint of power as she lets him lead her, this creature who could easily kill him with a flick of her dainty hands.

    "Are you afraid Sherlock Holmes?" Her warm eyes freeze over, knowing his answer.

    "Yes." Her wrist goes limp in his touch. "But that does not mean that I do not want to understand."

    She gives him a wide smile, and as she leans towards him is maybe not the best time to note how sharp her teeth look. “Do not be afraid, landling. I am patient. I will not let the sea have you.” She whispers, her hair dripping his shirt as her cold lips press gently to his cheek.

    "You are of the sea, will you not have me?"

    She gives him a sad smile.

    "You do not know what you ask of me, Sherlock Holmes." One last lingering kiss is placed on his forehead before she is one with the waves again.

    Summary

    "Will you show me? Will you reanimate something? A bee or something small?" She asks quietly in Chuck’s garden one day.

    "Oh Molly, I’m not a reanimator. His name was Ned, and I loved him." Chuck’s wrinkled hands wipe a way a tear from her sleepy brown eyes that used to glitter with mirth. ”See Molly, the first touch brings life, but the second brings death. Anything kept alive over a minute causes an equal exchange or…” Charlotte Charles’s smile wavers for the first time in Molly’s young life. ”You give your life over to them. Over time, they’re energy comes directly from you. I never knew- not till the end.”

    Chuck then tells stories of her former life with Ned, the reanimator and pie maker.

    And while her story is beautiful, Molly is afraid. Afraid that she could love someone so much that she’d give them her life.

    But on April 17th of 2002, a Wednesday of all days, Molly decides that maybe it’s worth it after all. Because of a groan in the alley way, because of blue eyes begging for something more, pleading for life like a prayer. He’s in between when she finds him, old track marks on his spindly arms should warn her away, but she can’t stop.
