    Summary

    Captured in battle, Major Jamie Stewart faces an uncertain fate.

    I've been lucky enough to receive four beautiful pieces of art for this story:

    My Dearest Jamie and These Days of Dust by Sithdragn,

    Roses of Picardy by Hechicera, and

    Roses of Picardy by Leyla Lovely.

    Please have a look and feed back the artists. Many thanks.

    The story is now also available as a podfic, recorded by Laura McEwan! Find it here.

    Hippediva has written a beautiful poem to complement the fic. Read it here.

    Summary

    or, The Adventure of the Red Shoes

    UK Ballet principal dancer Sherlock Holmes and assistant rugby coach John Watson met and fell in love as ambitious, optimistic teenagers. Twenty years on, they are entering midlife, facing the break-down of their bodies and the ending of their careers, and contemplating what the future holds for two middle-aged men forced to start over. With a frightening crisis unfolding at the Ballet, Sherlock must balance the demands of his career, his friendships, and his marriage with his own struggle against bitterness and discontent, while John takes a long-overdue glance from the outside, in, and stutter-steps toward making a kind of peace.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    In which dancer!Sherlock and rugby!John are still together 20 years later, and adulting is really difficult but ultimately worth it.

    Mature (in all senses), sensitive, painful and beautiful.
