  1. Summary

    On a world where Alexander the Great left a dynasty behind him and magic is a part of everyday life the lives of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are somewhat different. This series is meant to be glimpses into their lives and the lives of those around them in preparation for a larger work that will finally bring them together as they always should be.

  3. Summary

    Every day I pick a card or three randomly from my Tarot deck as a prompt. I thought it was going to be a series of one shots but a plot has evolved and no one knows the paths it will take to get to a happy ending. Not even me.

    Starts directly after the Tarmac Scene.

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes returns from his hunt to destroy Moriarty's network. He comes home to John and at long last, they start this thing between them that couldn't begin while Moriarty threatened them.

    But Sherlock has returned fractured and suffering anxiety attacks. He thinks he needs discipline - the whip- to help him focus and be strong. But his problems are deeper and run back to a childhood of neglect.

    John Watson is prepared to be Sherlock's Captain but he's a doctor, too. His command style isn't about pain and subjugation. It's about care and responsibility, and those concepts go in both directions in Captain Watson's command structure.

    Summary

    Now, as Rosie sat curled up against Sherlock’s side, John watched and wondered exactly how he had ended up here. Domesticity had never suited him before, not at any point in his life. His disastrous marriage had been proof of that. But somehow, here in the warmth and safety of 221B Baker Street, here with Sherlock Holmes reading medical jargon to his daughter, Sherlock’s bony feet nudging against his leg, John couldn’t imagine anyplace that would make him happier.
