    Summary

    Perhaps it is simply because it is springtime in London, and I long for the opportunity to throw open the windows, to air out our rooms from some dreadful, noxious experiment, and to hear once more him play his violin.

    Summary

    An unpublished account of the time Holmes and Watson investigated the murder of a gay couple, and it reminded them just how dangerous their own love is.

    "I do not think it is any sort of secret that I am beyond elated by my life here with Holmes and the adventures it grants the both of us. But this particular story is not about that, and it will never be published for our readers to partake in.

    It is a story about murder - because so many of our cases are – but above all, it is a story about love. That is why I am writing it here, in my personal journal that is always hidden below a false bottom in my desk. I must confess: I hope that one day someone will find this and read all of the wonderful aspects of my amazing life with Holmes that I dare not share with anyone at this time. It is also my hope that both Holmes and I are long since gone before that happens."

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    Doctor Watson’s unpublished writing includes a painful description of the great detective’s extreme moods.

    Explanations are required pertaining to cruel remarks and new clothing.
