    Summary

    I have resolved to be open and honest in this, my confession, and so I shall be. If you will read to the end of this letter, despite all I have done, I would be most grateful to you.

    It is an excessively queer feeling to be certain that one has at last met one's counter, but upon shaking hands to have one's wrist remain stubbornly blank.

    Summary

    What am I doing? he wondered. The answer came back at once: 
    Flirting.

    He sank deeper into the pillows, let the mist and blur of the wine settle around him, let it shore up his nerves and dim the warning signals that flashed dully in the back of his mind. He let the rest of the disappointment about Lucy and his strange accommodations and about the weekend as a whole fade into obscurity. He let the vital, missing piece snap into place as surely and as cleanly as if it had always been there.

    He was flirting with Sherlock Holmes.

    Summary

    “If this is a modern age, we’ll simply have to devise a modern arrangement.” Set late series two — really post series two, but there are no specific spoilers. If you must skip to Phryne/Jack, that's chapter 3.

    Update: If you're here via the Receding Horizons series, know that the connections don't become clear until the next (later, primary) installment, Standard Candles.

    Summary

    July 1928 - Eugene Fisher is Baron of Richmond-upon-Thames. In Melbourne, his poor relations had no idea how close they had been to inheriting a title.

    (Alternatively: On the first of November I sat down with a blank document, the first of many cups of tea, and two questions: "What would have happened if Henry Fisher had never inherited?" and "What if Phrack had had their gaudy night and it broke them as badly as Jack's face in that scene?" This fic is neither...)
