    Summary

    Also cross-posted from Sacrilege!, where it has been for years. This is a sequel to "Absurdly Simple" but it can also be read as a stand-alone story. It is exactly the same except for the fact that I have more clearly marked the changes in narration, which became even more confusing once the chapter divisions disappeared.

    Irene Adler is back in London and has returned to the stage, starring in Oscar Wilde's play An Ideal Husband. Violet Hunter ("Copper Beeches") is in London, working as a governess for an aristocratic and dysfunctional family. Holmes, Watson, and Violet are all in the audience on opening night; and they are soon all embroiled in an intrigue involving Irene Adler, Godfrey Norton, Violet's employers, and a diamond brooch in the shape of a snake. Watson and Violet Hunter take turns narrating a story chock full of double-crossing, cross-dressing, and Oscar Wilde.

    Summary

    Sherlock inadvertently deduces that John's been wanking to a photo of him. The realisation begins affecting Sherlock in ways he can't quite understand, much less control.
