    Summary

    Watson sits down in 1925 to retell a story of his and Holmes's past, specifically from April and May of 1895. This case was kept under wraps until 50 years after Watson's death, left to be read by an era more willing to embrace the truth of his life with Sherlock Holmes. During the two trials in the spring of '95 with Oscar Wilde at the Old Bailey courthouse, Holmes and Watson vanished from London to the English countryside to find safety from oppressive eyes. A minor burglary case sparks an elaborate escape plan put in place for two young women not dissimilar to themselves.

    In this romance and adventure story, we see the mysterious untold story behind the serially published cases of the Victorian era. A love story between Holmes and Watson that has waited far too long to be told emerges effortlessly, and even in times of great societal struggle, they manage to maintain safety and happiness with the help of one another.

    Summary

    They had had to relearn everything they thought they knew about themselves. It hadn’t been an easy process and both of them had fought it with everything they had for years. But after everything that had happened – the fall, Mary, Rosie, Eurus – that should have torn them apart, they somehow only grew closer, and lately they had been fighting the change in dynamics much less. Somehow they had both come to the realization that maybe – just maybe – they belonged together and that they actually deserved love and peace in their lives.

    Summary

    Sherlock scoffs, weakly. "How can it not matter?"

    "It does, some," John acknowledges. "It's our story and it forged us in fire, and so it matters because it's us. It's our nightmares and our fears and our shame and our hurt, and we wouldn't be the same without everything that has happened to us. But it doesn't matter because even after everything I love you and you love me. And that's just as real and true, and it will last far, far longer than the rest of the story."

    A day that is Not Good, and a better tomorrow. Can be read as a continuation of of silver scars and golden sunlight.
