    Bookmarker's Notes

    A canon friendly extension that does not pick on the holes but does try to fill them. No 4 bashing but some rather believable extras that slowly morph into more. Somewhere between canon and johnlock without anger for either. Great voice and I loved how the issues were addressed.

    Summary

    "Xie [...] had invented an entire pleasure-industry by combining superior visual aesthetics with impeccable personal attention. Drasha salons were by that time a feature of any even half-decent house of repose in every pleasure district in the British Isles, but once upon a time, when Xie debuted, there had been only one, and Xie had named it: the Icehouse."

    *
    In a contemporary dystopia, Unity is peace--despite the fact unsanctioned information, illicit currency, and every sort of danger flows unchecked in the world's pleasure districts.

    John Watson, a weary hired gun, is assigned by the mysterious Mentor to investigate a subversive element lurking in the Icehouse, the world's most famous House of Repose. As accustomed as he is to dealing with the unexpected, John is nevertheless woefully unprepared to meet the gem of the Ice house, Xie, the world renowned "drashaskaya," the living work of art after which all other drashas are modeled.

    In sumptuous suites, amid trailing puddles of silk and fervent whispers in the night, John soon learns that nothing is as it seems in the floating world of London's pleasure district.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    One of the best fan fic reads of all time. The world building is fantastic...it will blow you away.
    I did not expect to find Sherlock crossed with a Geisha at 200k to be riveting but IT IS!
    The subtle change of voice of each character whilst keeping them IN character is as great an artwork as Xie! Read 3 chapters and you will not want to put it down.

    Summary

    The Good Soldier, one of the oldest and strongest of the fallen, is offered a bargain: to live as John Watson and to Guide a fledgling archangel so that he will stay on the path of good. Of course, Sherlock Holmes has different ideas about his destiny. Fantasy AU. Warnings for violence, occasional gore, and a whole load of hurt and angst.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I am not into most guide stories, but this one is very good. I like the play with canon and the voice of the characters is spot on.

    Just a fantastic read...expanded series 4 with the good plot pointd woven in. Lots of fun extras and some gut wrenching head canon. Loved it.
