    Summary

    Warnings: Lengthiness. Possible spoilers for Feet of Clay and The Truth.
    Summary: If Vetinari has "no vice that anyone could discover" (Guards! Guards!), at least it could be deduced from the nature of the "cerebral" pleasures (Making Money) he likes to indulge in (not to mention from the nature of his 24/8 preoccupations) that he has a decided interest in control and power relationships. Canon leaves it at that (apart from his fondness for little dogs), but there are distinct ... possibilities in his relationship with his faithful clerk and secretary Rufus Drumknott. Even though they never so much as touch. (While I am all in favour of smut, I like to take a very old-fashioned view of these characters...;-) )

    Summary

    "So," said John, feeling out of his depth once again. "An owl." It was the same mild, politely curious tone of voice with which he had previously found himself uttering such things as: "So – three bags of frozen AB negative," and "So – a selection of human ears."

    "Goodness, John, with deductive prowess like that you'll soon be putting me in the shade," Sherlock said tartly. "Can't sneak anything past you, can we?"

    Summary

    Post!dh headcanon, epilogue-compliant; a continuation of irnan's fascination with the question of what-came-after-the-happy-ending. Not in chronological order; but hopefully, doesn't need to be.
