    Summary

    Unless you are terrified of chipmunks, there is nothing but joy in this little story. Don't worry, the chipmunk is adorable. Numpty the chipmunk was inspired by Charlotte, Charles and Bob, the three chippies who come to my door each day to personally receive a few peanuts from me. And yes, they are very soft when you pat them....gently and quickly. And no, I have no clue of their genders. :)

    Summary

    Ex-War healer and current angelic guard John Watson is not having the best day. He overslept, he’s underpaid, and now there’s someone tagging the Council’s building walls. However things may be about to get interesting: there’s an unusual stranger hanging around (the definition of tall, dark, and handsome), a literal underground cult is brewing, and rumblings are coming from hell. Can he keep his neighbourhood safe, how and why is he being connected to all this, and who the hell is Sherlock Holmes?

    Summary

    If you asked one of Mike Stamford’s acquaintances what they thought of him, their first reaction would be poorly-veiled surprise that he had sufficiently lodged in your mind to prompt the question. Then they would hem and haw and stall for time—clearly this isn’t a topic to which they have devoted much thought—before pronouncing him to be a pleasant, steady, unobtrusive man; the sort who earned his credentials through plodding consistency unaided by outstanding qualities.

    Yet Stamford's brand of pleasant-steady-inoffensive occasionally lends itself to flashes of real inspiration. He isn't the sort to boast, but on low days when he feels intolerably mundane he remembers those moments and smiles, and is content.

    Summary

    In which John Watson, recently returned from the war, buys a book in Mike Stamford's bookshop and Sherlock Holmes is a famous, openly gay, crime fiction writer whose hero is in need of a partner. A starting point for more than one story.

    Dear Doctor Watson:

    Thank you for your input (not that I need it or ask for it.).

    After spending a certain amount of time in my Mind Palace, I concede that you might not be entirely wrong. To further conduct the discussion regarding my newest book, "The Science of Seduction" and its containing only queer subtext, I would suggest a meeting at Speedy’s Café at 221 Baker Street in London, next Sunday at 7pm.

    Sherlock Holmes

    P.S.: Come if convenient. If inconvenient, come anyway.

    Summary

    It never occurred to John's parents that the boy their son talked about was more than a school friend. It never occurred to John's teachers that the boy was anything more than a family friend or neighbor. It never occurred to John that Sherlock was anything but a boy. That's how John ended up, at the age of ten, with what was for all deeds and purposes an imaginary friend.

    Sherlock wasn't really imaginary, of course, as he himself would attest to John's lack of imagination, but rather a boy who used to BE that simply WASN'T anymore. He was a ghost.
