    Summary

    When the lock started turning London didn't blink. If those little fuckers decided to try decapitating she was going to laugh in their faces. At least Mary of Scots had had more style than Victoria.

    Then the rusty eye grate opened and she recognized those eyes.

    "Oh, it's you. Did you bring pie? I'm starving."

     

    In which London is not a beautiful maiden (more like a dragon if you asked Edinburgh) but she is stuck in a tower, and Lisbon is bad at feelings but good at big gestures. Mostly.

    Summary

    Sherlock’s moods are mercurial and often inexplicable. I do not exaggerate in my published writings when I describe the passionate energy and focus that accompanies a case, nor the plunge into lethargy that follows. In fact, I have treated some of these periods more lightly than the truth of them warrants.

    Doctor Watson’s unpublished writing includes a painful description of the great detective’s extreme moods.

    Summary

    “If I did not want to be here, I would not be. It has been—how many—years? Surely you know that I understand that Sherlock Holmes is unique among men, and surely you know that I—your friend and lover and doctor and Boswell—adore you exactly the way you are.”

    Explanations are required pertaining to cruel remarks and new clothing.

    Summary

    “Enough of this, Sherlock. I know that you know better. I am married.” “Yes, John, I am aware,” he hissed back. “I was one of your witnesses. In fact, I do not believe that I am the person in this room who has forgotten that.”

    Among the papers in the hidden compartment of Doctor Watson’s dispatch box, there are occasionally other documents. Most are newspaper clippings, but there are a few photos, a few what appear to be legal documents, some telegrams, and a handful of documents written by a hand other than the doctor’s, the detective’s, or the landlady’s. It is one of those documents—a letter—that apparently was the impetus for a memorable evening and a dark time for both the doctor and the detective.

    Summary

    “Probably some background would be useful. So, deduce away,” she requested rather cheerily. “I do not wish to waste any time telling you what you already know."

    In John H. Watson’s dispatch box, there are some manuscripts that were never intended to see the light of day, but there are completed but as of yet unpublished stories of cases, and there are also others that, with some rewriting, were possibly intended for publication. This is one example—with some judicious editing of the more personal aspects of the tale, it most certainly would have been appropriate to appear in The Strand.

    It does make the reader wonder how many of the published cases had been edited in just such a way—the doctor carefully re-writing his manuscript to eliminate all of the inappropriate portions before sending it off to his publisher. As usual, Sherlock Holmes has interjected a few notes of his own.

    Summary

    Diese Story knüpft an Band 7 an und soll ein wenig der Geschichte zwischen dem Ende und dem Epilog darstellen. Neunzehn Jahre ist ein ziemlicher Sprung und ignoriert einen Großteil der Wirklichkeit - wie Leute mit der Erinnerung eines Krieges fertig werden müssen. Es mag für ein Kinderbuch vielleicht passen, aber die späteren HP-Bände sind nicht mehr als Kinderbuch zu bezeichnen, finde ich. Demnach hätte ich mir auch ein ausgearbeiteteres Ende gewünscht. Also habe ich mir ein paar Charaktere genommen, eine Romanze und eine historische Gesellschaftsform und damit ein wenig rumgespielt :)
