    Summary

    A look at moments within five canon stories, some points of which may have been narrated less reliably than artistically for various reasons. But then, reliable is a relative term; don’t you agree?

    Summary

    I missed the takeaway, and the foot chases when you go that way and I go this; I missed your nagging me to bring home milk and the tappetty tap of your writing about me.

    Summary

    It turns out that Sherlock’s Uncle Rocky lives on a rambling estate (John refuses to call The House a castle, he really does) in the Chilterns. Each year, all Holmes relations (close, distant, and honorary) are free to join the gathering which takes place there for a fortnight over the Christmas holiday. As Sherlock explains to John, “Various activities are undertaken; hunting, nature walks, recitations and chamber music in the evenings, there will be Shakespeare performed, the children will be given tuition in painting and chess among other things, we will all Dress For Dinner each evening. It will all be terribly boring and tedious, but I have been threatened in the severest of terms if I do not present myself and pass the interminably dull time along with everyone else.” Of course, nothing is ever that simple (or dull) when the boys are on the scene. Soon Sherlock is having a bit of a breakdown, John is posing shirtless, they end up with a case involving a missing horse, Sherlock tutors the kiddies in science, and John is about to discover exactly how seriously the Holmes clan takes their Shakespeare.

    Summary

    Sherlock and John are on a case which takes them through London on the trail of a murderer. They hit some tourist spots (by taxi of course) and eat some dim sum before giving chase on foot; this is where it gets dodgy. If you’d like to see the head in the fridge as a thoughtful gesture on Sherlock’s part, please mentally slot these events in just before The Great Game.
