    Summary

    A month after Sherlock's fall, John is coming apart at the seams. His sister Harry puts her law practice on hold and comes out to help John through the worst. When Harry reluctantly agrees to go out to Clara's house in Norwood to make out Clara's will, she becomes the prime suspect in Clara's murder. With Lestrade now his bitter enemy, John has to solve the case on his own...or does he?

    ****

    "Empty Houses" was written during the hiatus between the end of Series 2 and the beginning of Series 3. As of "Empty Hearse," the events depicted here are no longer consistent with canon. They remain, however, consistent with your burning desire to ship John and Sherlock.

    Summary

    The morning after John and Sherlock's party is full of surprises. Harry finds a priceless blue gemstone in the entrails of a chicken. John and Sherlock find themselves on the trail of something more sinister than a jewel theft. Lestrade finds himself in Molly's bed. Which seems, to both of them, like a pretty big problem...until Molly finds a corpse in her garden.

    Lestrade and Molly try to solve the murder--and hopefully solve the mystery of how they actually feel about each other. Sherlock and John try to figure out how that sapphire got into that chicken...and how this relationship upgrade is supposed to work. Harry, well, all she's trying to do is start up a law practice and get back into the dating game. But they're all trapped in the same weird web; and they're not the only ones being drawn into its center.

    This is a sequel to "Empty Houses." It crosses "The Blue Carbuncle" with a few other things, including T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land.. If you care about the intertextual stuff, the notes at the end of Chapter 7 will tell you all about that. (NOTES CONTAIN SPOILERS. BIG SPOILERS.) But you do not have to understand The Waste Land, or ever have heard of it, to enjoy the story.

    Summary

    Seven years ago, Captain John Watson of the Canadian Forces Medical Service withdrew from society, seeking a simple, isolated life in the distant northern wilderness of Canada. Though he survives from one day to the next, he doesn't truly live until someone from his dark past calls in a favor and turns his world upside-down with the introduction of Sherlock Holmes.

    "The essentials of their relationship distilled through solitude."

    Summary

    “Sherlock,” John continues, careful and quiet. “I’ve seen your back. I know you were hurt. I don’t want to pry, I don’t want to cause you discomfort but...I’m starting to think something else happened there. In Serbia.”

    Sherlock rolls away and sits up on the edge of the bed, his back to John.

    “A great many things happened in Serbia,” he says, flat and remote. “None of them were pleasant.”
