    Summary

    Perhaps what Crocker said should have made a greater impression on me at the time- as it must have on Holmes- for it was quite a neat encapsulation of my own existence. Perhaps it did not because for all I loved him, for all I wanted things which could never be mine, I often forgot to be discontented for days, even weeks, at a time. Crumbs from Sherlock Holmes were, I felt, a feast from anyone else. But in the moment I was unspeakably grateful to our friend the captain for saying and meaning what I could not.

    In the aftermath of the Abbey Grange case, Holmes and Watson make an agreement- but all is not as it seems.

    Summary

    She had been watching Stella Hopkins for a while- from where she sat at the other end of the bar, and also in general. She knew Hopkins was trying to make a name for herself and figured that Sherlock Holmes could be a good way to do that; either she would come out the other side of it or she wouldn’t. Sally hoped it would be the former, obviously- but she saw hints of the latter in the speed at which Hopkins had been drinking all night.

    A strange case.

    Summary

    Or, This Great Stage of Fools.

    Shakespeare AU.

    John Watson is the star player in William Shakespeare's theatre company, the Lord Chamberlain's Men: Sherlock Holmes is a freelance actor who plays female parts and solves crimes in his free time.

    Summary

    "Uh...this is...wrong on so many levels."
    The waitress spun back around in an instant, quite an accomplishment for someone wearing such cheaply-constructed heels.
    "Everything OK, Sug? Oh, that's right. People from England drink theirs hot. Even in the summertime." She turned back to me, whispering as if she was uttering some conspiratory plot, "We only like it like that when it's cold out. Which is, maybe for two, three weeks a year. The ice storms come somewhere between the heat that'll make ya melt and the tornadoes."

    From BBC kinkmeme prompt: "Sherlock doesn't like tea. John makes a lot of tea and Sherlock understands that it means "I love you." I'd be happy with platonic, asexual Sherlock, Johnlock, unrequited, whatever - just some nice sappy schmoop :-)"

    Summary

    Done as part of a (circa 2007) multifan appreciation of our most intrepid of Inspectors, Mr. Stanley Hopkins of the Yard.

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words; if it is so, you can really just click here for the art of the ever-awesome Spacefall and save yourself the hassle of reading this. Spoilers ahoy for ABBE, and warnings for Watson being fairly lollerskates over Hopkins's Holmesian obsessions.
