    Summary

    Even in their old age, Hazel and Daisy just can't seem to escape being in the right place at the right time to solve a murder mystery. And neither of them would have it any other way. Detective Society quite literally Forever!
    _____

    Spoilers? I hope not - I've read all current available canon as of December 2016, including Mistletoe and Murder, but references to previous cases should be oblique and non-spoilery. The only exception to this is - if I've done my job well - some of the nuance of the Hazel/Daisy relationship. As this is future!fic, the majority of what I've written is imagined, but it would be hard not to be a little influenced by how things have played out in the books thus far.

    Summary

    I relayed the information I’d so masterfully committed to memory in my youth, re: the prophet Elijah being taken up to heaven while still alive and in full possession of his faculties. I’d won a prize for Scripture-knowledge and so had details of this sort at my fingertips.

    “Although,” I said, as we neared what I took to be the stratosphere, or some kind of sphere at any rate, “just now my resemblance to the prophet Elijah escapes me.”

    If it had been fiction, Dakin would have died. (The Turn of the Screw.) If it had been fiction, perhaps Irwin himself would have copped it. (Death in Venice.) Neither happened, of course. Irwin had survived, as argumentative and desire-tormented as ever, which proved that literature offered only the vaguest of guides to human affairs.

    "It may also please you to advertise my lord his grace that since his repair to Richmond I have been at Lesnes, where I saw one of the most piteous and grievous sights that ever I saw, which to me before the sight of the same was incredible, concerning the breach out of the Thames into the marshes at Lesnes, which are all overflowed and drowned."
