    Summary

    Two musical notes: Every parrot and every construction worker knows them. Shrill and salacious, so Sherlock will remember: You are on display. It’s supposed to be a compliment. Supposed to make him feel good, that they have laboured to remind him.

    It makes him feel like a package of meat, set down into the cooler, raw and waiting to eaten.

    Summary

    John envisioned the past few years, with their expected dramas and carefully laid plans unfolding like a map from Moriarty to freedom. He envisioned his role in it: loving husband, unwitting dupe, luckless pawn. And at the end, he envisioned relief, and breath, and a brilliant, incandescent love.

    An oasis. Just this dance. Just one more, and then back into the fray.

    John doesn't think it's very realistic that a night in a small semi-waterproof tent with his adrenaline-fueled flatmate is going to cure him of his bad mood. Sherlock doesn't think John has a good grasp of what realistic is.

    Summary

    Sherlock was suspiciously quiet and when John finally chanced a glance at him, he was completely unsurprised to see Sherlock's eyes narrowed in concentration, moving through his usual deductive capabilities. John knew the exact moment Sherlock became aware of the entire situation, as his eyebrows shot up towards his hairline and he gasped a little oh before a furiously crimson blush infused his absurd cheekbones.

    "John, I," Sherlock cleared his throat and visibly steeled himself. "John, I believe we may have had sexual intercourse last night."

    John sighed and rubbed his face again. "Yep, I got there myself actually."

    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.
