    Summary

    (1883) Holmes has made it well known the extent to which he abhors the softer passions, and so I am careful not to offend him by the depth of my feelings with a set of rules I have established for myself.
    On the other hand... Holmes rules, if there are any guidelines he ascribes to, apparently allow for watching me sleep in the early morning.

    Summary

    When a male prostitute brings Holmes home after he's been attacked Watson knows that he shouldn't ask questions;-

    It is an insolent question and Holmes’ eyebrows lift towards his hairline. I look down to where his white hand rests on his knee and await my fate. He waits until I lift my head again before he speaks. Holmes regards me with a smile darting around his red lips. He sits up Indian fashion in his armchair and steeples his fingers together. “Not often. Now what is that you really wish to know, my dear Watson?”

    I choke back the one word answer ‘everything’ and mumble that it isn’t my concern. Holmes uncurls himself and pours us both a brandy. His fingers touch mine when he hands me the glass and it is unlike any other passing contact. “My God,” I say and gulp the brandy down.

    Summary

    Watson hopes to distract Holmes during a lull between cases. (Set sometime after A Study in Scarlet and before The Sign of the Four).

    Excerpt: Over the top of my newspaper, I watched Holmes rise from his seat. He walked to the window and peered out, his pipe clenched between his teeth. It was the third time he had made the journey to the window in a quarter hour. I waited for his announcement of a visitor. I listened for the sound of carriage wheels, the knock upon the downstairs door. The street remained quiet, the door-knocker still, even the lowering clouds I could see above the buildings over the road held in their rain.
