    Summary

    The stage lost a fine actor, even as science lost an acute reasoner, when he became a specialist in crime.

     

    January, 1881: a despondent army doctor is offered a ticket to a Shakespeare play, and is instantly captivated by the fellow playing the Danish prince himself. Then there is a murder. Then they fall in love.

    Summary

    I had forgotten what this felt like; all of the waiting, the build-up to the day of the telegram’s arrival, was like a torturous climb up an impossible slope. I could see the summit, but could get there no faster. Now, released from the bonds of my humble practice and the city of London, I was soaring down the other side, arms spread wide, unknowing where my adventure would take me, except for the glorious, long-absent, beloved contents of its destination.

    Summary

    Holmes needs glasses, but he's too much of a stubborn arse to go get his eyes checked. Watson is used to bullying him for his own good. The glasses have unexpected but not unwelcome consequences for everyone.

    Summary

    There was the splash of a lanky detective stepping into a lukewarm hip bath, and then a hiss as that same detective sank into a crouch. When I turned around, he was holding his arms above the surface of the water and regarding me with a wounded expression: big silver eyes and pouting lips.

     

    "I thought this was supposed to be a nice treat," he said. "After… all that fuss."

    Summary

    "I want to touch you, now," he went on, and buried his face in my neck for a moment, "and see how far I can push you without letting you reach your peak." Watson sets Holmes a challenge. Holmes obliges.

    Summary

    Merry Month of May masturbation challenge! 31 days, 31 ficlets? This is a terrible idea. Prompts welcome. Title from the poem by Thomas Decker.

    I recommend reading this chapter-by-chapter, as each part (essentially) stands alone. The chapter index may be particularly helpful.

    Summary

    John wasn't the worst artist in the room, and bodies didn't make him giggle. He liked working in charcoal better than in pencil, because he liked the way it smudged under his fingertips, and focusing on what was in front of him for three hours on a Monday night really cleared his head. The only one who made John blush was Sherlock.

    Summary

    The year is 1920: the Great War is over, and Sherlock Holmes has retreated to his cottage in Sussex in search of privacy and quiet. But a mystery is unfolding in the little village of Fulworth, and Holmes can't resist getting involved. Having John Watson at his side during a rare weekend visit is a further temptation, and together they delve into a case of murder and mayhem that threatens the whole town. The reminder of their younger days and the excitement that first brought them together rekindles dormant affection, and long-suffered secrets are reluctantly, inevitably revealed.

    Summary

    It cannot be overstated: John Watson is indispensable. Not only does he make a reliable and relatable companion on any number of my little problems and mysteries, as well as a respectful flatmate and decent biographer, but he has saved my skin more times than I can count. So it is only natural that, when Watson requires my assistance in a similar matter, I rise to the occasion.

    Summary

    Fanshaw would amuse John for a little while, like the girls always did, and then John would be distracted by Sherlock's brilliance, Sherlock's demands for his attention, Sherlock's mad energy, and Fanshaw would disappear.

    John starts dating a male client of Sherlock's, and Sherlock can't figure out why he's so incensed about it.
