    Summary

    "I had of course read Doctor Watson's account in The Strand and my brother's eulogizing letters carried by the Daily Telegraph that preceded it. I was gratified by the latter's kind words, and even Doctor Watson's grudging admission of my criminal accomplishments did not go unmarked or unappreciated. A dead man will naturally have some interest in how he's remembered, or would if given the chance."

    In which Holmes and Moriarty both survive the Fall, and meet one last time after it all.

    Summary

    Let me begin afresh by attempting to fully analyze the complicated feelings that possessed me as I stood in the foyer of Watson's home, waiting for the Committee spy (otherwise Miss Elizabeth Littell, a pickpocket of some reknown now employed to steal secrets for the state) to announce my presence to him. I note initially that resurrecting oneself after even a short period of being dead is an exhausting and bewildering business. I do not recommend it.

    ***
    Holmes finally emerges, and he and Watson go out to an empty house to take on Colonel Moran. Holmes has a plan. In fact, he has two plans. Neither of them goes exactly as expected.

    Summary

    Watson will of course make his own memorandum of this case; but he is not a specialist, and his areas of expertise render him peculiarly unprepared for a vigorous analysis of the central question of this projected monograph, viz., the optimal relationship between the intellect and the passions with regard to the science of deduction. In any case, at the moment, his information is incomplete. During the Larches episode, I had no opportunity (more accurately, I made no opportunity) to inform Watson of Adair's death, or of my clandestine visit to the scene and its aftermath. Our adventure unfolded so rapidly, and rose to such a pitch of urgency, that I never had the chance to tell him these details; and now, Watson is, alas, making his way down the stairs and out of 221b in the company of Lestrade, who is finding them a cab which they have agreed to share. Though I now know that Watson's assessment of his own gifts as an actor was entirely accurate, I hope that he is concealing the pain he must feel at parting from me after a night such as we have had.

    Summary

    To manage Holmes's return to public life, Holmes and Watson have to split up. They need a way to communicate without meeting.

    Turns out the Times has an app for that.
    Holmes discovers Victorian sexting; Watson discovers the opening act of a slow-motion tragedy. Related to "Empty House" and "Illustrious Client." This works as a stand-alone, but it will work better if you read Much To Hope For, Slow Burn, and A Close Shave first.

    Summary

    Holmes and Watson return to Baker Street after the arrest of Colonel Moran and deal with the aftermath of Holmes' dramatic return from the dead.

    “I am still angry, Holmes, but I meant it when I told you this afternoon that I never was happier to see anyone in my life—dear God, I missed you so.” He smiled faintly and placed his hand over mine which still rested upon his knee; we sat in silence for what felt like a very long time. Our hands pressed together felt strange and new but yet inevitable, as if they had always been that way, and my fingers ached to grab hold of his own, to press them to my chest and hold him there forever.

    Summary

    All day long I scribble notes on paper. Not just the case notes--the forms, too, permissions for this and requisitions for that. That you go home after a long day on the job and then you write more--I know there's money in it, but I could never make myself. Maybe that's changing now. Maybe one day the world will marvel at the Memoirs of Inspector Lestrade, as they do at Vidocq's.

    Well, this entry's going to be memorable, anyway.
    *****
    Lestrade comes to terms with Sherlock Holmes.

    Summary

    June 21, 1891. 3:00pm, Committee Room D.

    Minutes of the In Camera Committee for the Preservation of Information Security, Lord Bellinger presiding.
    Present: Lord Holdhurst, the Right Honourable Trelawney Hope, Sir James Walter, Mr. Mycroft Holmes ex officio.

    All members being present and all necessary security measures being taken, Mr. Holmes was per usual nominated to take the minutes. Per usual, M. Holmes was charged with circulating a paper copy through secure channels to committee members for corrections and redactions, after which M. Holmes is to commit the final version to memory and then destroy the original. M. Holmes acquiesced and begged all present to note that the file number for these minutes will be MM351, and reminded all present that when calling upon to consult committee minutes it is extremely helpful to mention the file number assigned to the meeting rather than mumble vaguely about half-remembered dates, times, and topics. [N.B. to M. H.: strike final sentence as it is irrelevant and slightly unkind. --Bellinger.]
    ****
    Mycroft's draft minutes of the secret committee meeting at which the ultimate fate of the Honourable Ronald Adair was determined.

    Summary

    Fix-It fic for Larry Townsend's The Sexual Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: Three years after witnessing the nude-gladiatorial waterfall death of his beloved Sherlock Holmes and his nemesis James Moriarty, the Napoleon of Crime and the Caligula of London (and after ending his sad liasion with Moriarty's last rentboy Friedl), Dr. Watson receives an invitation to return once more to the legendary hardcore sex club the Diogenes. What could the reason be? What would the voyeuristic leather-master Mycroft Holmes possibly want with his brother's grieving widower? Could it have something to do with the Ron Adair murder?

    Larry Townsend ended his 1971 porn pastiche with his version of "The Final Problem" and never wrote a version of the "Empty House" reunion. This is my pale attempt to imagine what that might have been like. Townsend had a style that was both luridly pornographic and passionately emotional - I tried to do it justice.

    Also a fill for this prompt at Sherlock Kink Meme! Huge thanks to my beta Iwantthatcoat!

    Oh, you think this notion of ‘Gymnasium Satchel Sherlock Holmes’ is a modern invention, do you?

    And is quite disappointed in you.

    Summary

    I have often been told by friends and by readers of the Strand that my stories are full of contradictions and errors, but they assume too much by supposing that these are accidental continuity errors. I, John H. Watson M.D, am a liar. I console myself with the thought that at least my lies are not selfish, but rather they are told for the protection of the person who matters to me the most, Sherlock Holmes.
