    Summary

    Years after Mary melted into the darkness, John and Sherlock are at their wits' end. Rachel Watson, aged nine, is about as difficult as you might expect a child raised by Sherlock Holmes and John Watson to be. But life is no picnic for Rachel, either. John won't even talk about her mother; and ever since Uncle Mycroft was assassinated, Sherlock just hasn't been himself. It doesn't help that the British government is in the hands of a gang of corrupt criminals. John finally decides that the right boarding school might give Rachel the structure she seems to need. It's not until Rachel disappears that he and Sherlock realize that someone else has had the same idea.
    ****
    "Prior Engagements" works as a stand-alone story, but it is also a sequel to my post-S3 fixit, "Law Like Love." It takes place about nine years after "His Last Vow," but it is non-canon compliant and written as if S4 never happened. Mary's still alive, Mycroft's not, Redbeard really was a dog, and Eurus does not exist. Baby Watson's name is Rachel and not Rosamund Mary.

    Summary

    The problem with living with Sherlock, John thought, was that you never, never, ever knew the significance of anything. Like your flatmate's nose buried in your hair. Whilst you're in bed.

    Summary

    It is 1907, and Sherlock Holmes' lover of three years knows him only as a tender of bees, a grower of roses, and a gentle, open companion. But then a letter arrives from Dr. Watson, followed by Dr. Watson himself, and their sleepy Sussex cottage plays host to memories of the past and fears for the future.
