  1. Summary

    The evening Sherlock rescued Irene from the terrorists, she repaid her debt to him by offering him the two things she could: her body and her submission. Nearly ten months later she reenters his life with something unexpected: their daughter, Abigail Irene Holmes. Doing what she considers to be in their daughter's best interest, she leaves Abigail with him, and Sherlock's journey in life as a single father begins, bringing with it challenges, friendships, great losses, a chance at love and, more importantly, a sense of peace and happiness his life has sorely lacked.

  5. Summary

    "Every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don't always spoil the good things and make them unimportant." - The Doctor

    Summary

    All would have been fine, except her hair had smelled like ginger. That was as pleasant as the kiss she surprised him with. Not that he normally noticed or cared about such things. Sherlock is flummoxed and unable to sleep, over something trivial to his august mind. Best not to think about it at all, though even a visit to his Mind Palace brings the question back around. Of course John has the answer, even when Sherlock has clearly chosen NOT to ask him. Even in the Mind Palace, John's human wisdom is irrefutable.

    Sherlock comes to a decision. When he needs to leave London suddenly, the morning after her unexpected kiss, he promises to stay in touch. Courtship in the age of instant electronic communication needn't be too complicated. Texts can be eloquent even if brief, and absence can serve to make the heart grow fonder. (Chapter Two also published as a stand alone ficlet, "Can You Read Between the Lines?"; Chapter 3 also published as stand alone, "Back in London, for the Lady Waits")

    Summary

    John takes charge of a birthday celebration for Mrs. Hudson. As she requested, just a low key night out with "her boys"--dinner & a trip to the theatre. When John sees an old acquaintance there, the evening turns more interesting. Even such an inauspicious beginning, like a seed, can lead to a beautiful flowering. There's a first meeting that isn't really a first. And there will be curiosity that begs a second. What combination of wit, humor and chemistry is enough to capture the attention of the worlds only Consulting Detective? And once attained, can it be kept from devolving into boredom? That will turn out to be quite a balancing act.
