    Summary

    Lestrade considers himself an old, broken man, with little hope of finding happiness. Married to his work and divorced from a whore for an ex-wife, he's placed himself into forced exile from polite society, so there is little chance of remarrying. He is alone and left to pass the rest of his life arresting evil doers, protecting London, and running around after the Great Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. That's all that's left for him, isn't there? Not if he follows his heart, that seems to beat again with a flourish when he notices a similar feeling echoed in the eyes of a mousy, clumsy woman by the name of Miss. Molly Hooper. They start a courtship, and only one question remains: Is marriage the outcome? Stay Tuned...

    Molly Hooper always thought herself alone, exiled by choice to look after her father and keep the house for him, training to take over her father's coroner practice when he dies. She was on a path straight to spinsterhood, just like her Aunt Evelyn. But when fate sends her love in the form of a silver fox that goes by the title Detective Inspector, will she be able to grasp onto it? Will she fight for it when confronted by the scars life has left on him? What of his family's approval? Only fate knows...

    Summary

    “I know how slowly you move in the mornings. We’ve time enough, perhaps.” Holmes stroked his mussed hair. He wasn’t thinking of answering any summons in a timely manner. Watson resettled himself and threw an arm across Holmes’s chest, grunting his approval of the timeframe. “You talk in your sleep.”

    Summary

    As the Civil War draws to an end, Major Dean Winchester and General Castiel Novak must adjust to the new conditions of peacetime life. Castiel takes Dean home to New York City where they can blend in as a pair of men in love easier than they could in Dean's home of Kansas. In spite of a burgeoning social life going to parties in Molly houses, places known to host men who preferred men, they live in fear every day of the illegal nature of their affair. A police raid on a popular Molly house lands Dean and Castiel in prison, a result of the meddling of Meg, the wife Castiel rejected to be with him during the war. Her taste for revenge threatens their lives. They must depend on friends like the Harvelles and Singers to set them free in a society designed to destroy same-sex love.

    Summary

    He wasn’t crazy.
    He wasn’t crazy, that was what Stiles kept telling himself. His Mantra.
    It wasn’t exactly a comfort since it felt objective. But it was what Stiles has been telling himself ever since he saw his mother’s ghost a mere few weeks after they put him in the ground.

    After 9 years of seeing his mother's ghost,Stiles' father has sent him to Eichen Haus. There Stiles meets some interesting people that seem to be in the same boat as him,but soon become some of the best friends he could have ever asked for.
    Then enters Dr.Scott McCall, the youngest to graduate in his medical field, and the most gorgeous person Stiles has ever seen.But Scott wouldn't want anything deep with a crazy person -which Stiles isn't- let alone one of his patients.
    But Scott is there for a whole different reason, a mission of sorts,and believes that Stiles can be one of the prime candidates to help him achieve it

    Summary

    Holmes looks into a case of apparently wrongful admission to a lunatic asylum, and Moriarty decides he and Holmes need to intensify their political efforts if they’re going to help those around them. Along the way Moriarty takes a shine to a young chap named Charlie Wootton. The story is set in the mid-1880s: I cheated a little with several details that actually happened a few years later.

    NB The story is narrated by Moriarty, and he uses the language of his era, some of which (e.g. the term ‘lunatic’) would be considered offensive today but was not at the time.

    Summary

    Holmes and Moriarty start becoming a little more political, and help an anaesthetist accused of mis-using chloroform along the way. In between, they dabble in a little callous experimentation on others. As this is narrated by Moriarty, there is little or no moralising: violence/rape/torture are pretty much normal to him.

    Summary

    Summer 1884. Holmes is getting more and more cases, although not really any closer to Moriarty, much to Moriarty’s annoyance! Moriarty narrates their investigation into a presumed suicide in a man who is being blackmailed for his sexuality, which seems to have some relevance to their own relationship.

    This story contains no violence (unlike others in the series).

    Summary

    It is not my habit, as it has so often been that of my dear friend Watson, to be compelled to record every minor problem to cross my path. Yet in this peculiar case, I find myself unable to order my own thoughts without committing a full account to paper. It will have to be burned, of course, lest it catch the eye of my brother - or worse, Watson - but perhaps its brief existence will aid me in ascertaining my own mind on these curious events....
