    Summary

    It was the night before the best day of her life. The last night she'd dance as Martha Sissons.

    Margaret, her best friend, kept saying it was the end of an era. She didn't even mean it in an ironic way, which was sometimes hard to tell with Margaret. Being as she was clever enough to get a degree in women and write a book about dancing in the clubs.

    Margaret was right. Getting married changes things.

    Summary

    Stamford warned Jane about Sherlock's habit of dosing people.

    She'd moved her pile o' shite into her room. Taken a gander at the view out the space port window of the asteroid field and clomped back into the main room ready to lay down the law. She said in her very best, do not mess with me voice, "Sherlock!" Course, he was fussing around with an electron microscope and ignored her. But she figured this was important enough to get a little personal. She grabbed him by the chin and turned that bony face of his forward. "Sherlock," he blinked those had to be a bio upgrade green eyes of his at her. "I'm only going to say this once. If I find that you have ever… Ever dosed me with a biological, whether it messes with my suppressants or not, I will exact justice, understood." She squeezed that little bit.

    As it happened, he only messed with his own heats. Which given the things Stamford couldn't have thought to warn her about... well, that's the rest of the adventure.

    Summary

    Captain Iago Moriarty said, "When your government turns on you, and they will; are you going to be pleading your belly?"

    "I don't know," said Captain Jane Watson, tilting back her hat, "are you?"

    Her ship's doctor, a pommy looking Omega with not an ounce of thump to her rump or rigging, looked up from pulling splinters from some poor sod's hide. "Captain Watson, I've asked you not to restrict your jests to scientifically possible events."

    "Ta," said Captain Watson with her hands on the doubled pistols in her belt. "But if I have to hear one more jackoff pirate ask me if I'm going to plead my belly, I'm going to get a bit annoyed."

    Summary

    It would surprise no one to know that Lord Sherlock was a fussy infant. Perhaps he knew that his Alpha father had died fighting the French in one of Britannia’s eternal wars with that vexing nation. He was only an infant, but in later years no one would have doubted he was capable of it.

    Until one day, the surprise was that he had stopped wailing. The child of a servant had crawled into Lord Sherlock's crib and was curled up with him. From then on little Joan Watson had a job, which was quite simple. Keep Lord Sherlock entertained.

    Summary

    Holmia Serlocius lost his mare, Abelia, within minutes of the Dumnoii ambush. Commander Martius Petillius Jaumius had allowed the Ninth Legion to get well and truly stretched out in the Dumnonii's territory to make for a fine slaughter. An offer the Dumnonii took them up on. The Beta's fell until there was only Serlocius tied to a tree deducing his enemies, because he was tired of suppressing his truth.

    That Jonnyfer of the Dumnonii heard those truths and laughed was a story. Not one she told. She told other tales. Most of them horrible lies with flaws that dangled like threads for a cat. Serlocius was no cat. He served under the Alpha Eagle for the Omega Wolf of Rome. Still, they were horribly told stories. He told his captor so. That would be the story told here.

    Summary

    Lady Irena played a subtle game. It was the only hand an Omega might play.

    While it was said that the Prince wielded his sword like a shining star. It was said that he'd made some inverted deal with the devil to gain that skill and something more. That the devil had given him a charm that he wore always about his neck that lent him sight in battle, such that he could but look at the field and know which way the enemy would go and so wield his troops the better for it. For all these whispers, the Prince's knights were most devoted to him, none more than Sir Watson, who was the Prince's chosen body servant and left hand.

    Summary

    Jonn of the Lilliputians, given his tiny size, knew he'd never be able to sail the high seas as he'd have wished. Even if as a Beta, he hadn't been expected to stay home and provide for his sister's children. He looked up at the night sky and imagined finding a star to navigate by.

    While Sheerlocc of the Brobdingnags scorned such obligations to her sister Mycrafft's growing brood. She scorned the court of the King. She turned her attentions to science. She lived her life largely alone in a tower looking at the light of the distant stars and was largely mocked for her ways.

    Now one cold and winter clear night, when the stars seemed close and the moon hung so low that she actually reached up her hands to pluck it down, she gave a weary laugh at her own ridiculousness. "Everything in this world is relative, my dear Moon." She wrote for hours and flung all that she knew into the sea. It was the sky that returned the answer.

    Summary

    Sara Locke's day job was unshackling herself upside down under water in a glass case.

    Investigating spiritualists preying on the unwary after the War to End all Wars was merely her hobby. A hobby that took a slight turn for the odd.

    Summary

    Dr. William Sherlock Scott Holmes, PhDs in Astrophysics, Mechanical Engineering and Psychology certainly knew what they said about him. He was an Omega. That he shouldn't even have been allowed into the program in the first place. That it was ridiculous IOA interference into military operations.

    He knew that they called their gate team the O team. He and John, Molly Hooper and Sergeant Donovan. They went on milk runs, and that was exactly the sort of sophomoric humour he could have expected.

    Still, in a universe where anything can happen, it will happen.

    Summary

    The Beta looked thoughtful. "I'm Professor Sherlock Holmes. I shall be your fellow kidnappee for the journey. Now," he looked thoughtfully around, "If you give me a moment, I'll tell you where they've hidden the real coffee beans."

    Later Sherlock said very gravely over a demon black cup of coffee, "John, you should know that there were some ancient societies that revered the Unpresented. Some," he lowered that italian roast voice of his and whispered, "practiced human sacrifice." He winked at John.

    All in all, the Muvian cult were a bunch of idiots.

    Summary

    She'lok's prurient interest in gender dimorphism had always been a bit... low for such an evolved being, but to encounter John, a life form from a species with six genders, it was just like the Winter Solstice festival.

    There was also saving the world, but really... six genders instead of one... lovely.

    Summary

    The idea that Professor Moriarty's project for a power station at this military base was somehow of greater value than this precious find of a several thousand year old mummified body was bad enough. The fresh corpse missing head and hands that had had appeared at her dig site was an insult.

    As if she couldn't identify a body with less. She was the foremost forensic anthropologist in the world. Agent Joan Watson said, "I believe you, Doc." She also said she'd consider coitus after the case was solved. Thus motivated, Sherlock set to analysis.

    How dinosaurs came into the picture, now that was just ridiculous. Though Sherlock quite liked it.

    Summary

    When Sherlock was nine, she found a wonderful fur coat in the attic of the summer house by the sea. She put it on with the fur turned inward and ran through the house spinning and laughing. When Mummy saw her, she ripped off the coat and flung it into the sea.

    Mummy wanted Sherlock to never even see the sea again after that. Naturally, Sherlock obsessed with nothing else. The depths were full of mystery.

    When she was twenty-nine, she was on a forced vacation at the summer house. When she was twenty-nine, she found the merman washed up on the beach. When all other things had been eliminated, what remained, what she saw with her own eyes, was the truth.

    Summary

    Jane Watson had rented the cottage on the Sussex Downs because she needed a quiet place away to work on her next novel. Though sometimes, she felt like her best days were behind her. She reminded herself that sixty wasn't that old. Her gran had lived to be over a hundred.

    She hadn't meant to run into a retired detective protecting a Queen. Queen bee that was. She hadn't meant for any of it.

    Summary

    To wake up on a cold metal bed was unpleasant. To find that she was young again, that her body worked as it had not worked in thirty years, that her mind was once more that precise instrument and that the grit that she had never allowed herself to acknowledge was now a gaping hole in the middle of her chest.

    She looked at Beth Lestrade, a descendant of her own Lestrade and listened to absurdity. With all that the future held in it, a moron had cloned Moriarty from a corpse in a Swiss cave and the solution, the only solution anyone could come up with, was to reverse aging and death itself so that Sherlock Holmes could once more be upon the case.

    It was slightly depressing. Baker Street was a museum. She was a museum piece. She belonged in a museum. Computers. Flying vehicular transport. Compudroids.

    Sherlock reminded herself that this compudroid, this thing of the future science did not mean to mock her when it put on Watson's face and spoke with Watson's voice and acted as if this was of assistance.

    Summary

    Jean met Sherlock one week before she shipped out, because Mikaela Stamford was evil.

    Pure evil.

    Jean was bitching about being horny and wanting to howl at the moon. She just wanted something no strings without having to fake who she was at a meat and greet Beta club. Mikaela gave her a grin made of pure evil and said, "Funny you should say that. You're the second person to say that to me today. And the first one is plain peculiar."

    Jean looked down. She was wearing her "Not for Moo" t-shirt, which she felt got the message across pretty clearly. She said, "Lay on MacDuff."

    The rest as they say, was historical making.

    Summary

    Death was announced to the long ballroom as the Grand Duke John of the West, which was interesting as choices of names went. Death wondered sometimes what people saw on the card, or the letters of invitation, or the stone tablets before that.

    A tall thin Omega woman in a black wool dress leaned against the gold trimmed wall as if she was doing it a favour. The Omega, Sherlock, because Death knew her name, Death knew everyone's name, was holding a white cloth clutched in her hand flecked with red. She said, "I am not going to die tonight." That was true.

    She really was the most interesting human Death had met in a very, very long time.

    Summary

    Master Fight-the-Good-Fight-of-Faith Watson was born into sin. Everyone was. It was the way things were. Even worse, he'd presented as an Omega, which was surely a sign he had been marked by a demon in his Mother's womb.

    He had a picture in his head of Sherlock Holmes from his letters. Which even that pronoun was an example of how he wasn't good at deducing from the available facts. The reverse not being true...
