    Summary

    If Holmes is right about the flowers, then there is a providence out there guiding us toward each other. It is hard sometimes to credit it. There are so many stories like ours in which Holmes and I have played our part; and not all of them have happy endings.
    ****
    Seek and ye shall find. This is not the end of the series, but it is the end of the separation. I am grateful to the many friends and strangers who gave me advice about some of the nautical details of this story. Your acknowledgments are in the notes.

    Summary

    Everyone knows that Mary Morstan is the kindest and most beautiful woman in England. It is a secret known only to you and myself, diary, that she is also one of the sauciest.
    *****
    This takes place, chronologically, after "Whatever Remains" but BEFORE "Five Dirty Minutes in the Dark." Violet Hunter, Mary Morstan, and Doctor Watson are about to set sail in search of Holmes. Nobody's entirely pleased about the sleeping arrangements.

    I've rated this story M because it has more sex than is usual for me; but frankly I have no idea what the AO3 standards really are, so if you think I've mislabeled it, feel free to discuss that in the comments.

    Summary

    July 3, 1891

    As each of the past seven entries in this journal has begun with complaints about the monotony of convalescence, the inconvenience of being unable to engage another servant, and the unbearable mixture of suspense and tedium that my life has become, I begin this entry with a new pen, a fresh bottle of ink, and the best penmanship that a doctor can summon:

    NEWS AT LAST.
    *****
    The good news is, Watson finally has a chance to bring Holmes back. The more awkward news is, he'll have to work with Mary and Violet to do it. Read "O Paradis," etc., first.

    There's a lot of pining in this.

    Summary

    Dearest,

    I know this delay must have been hateful to you, but I really could not have written earlier. I dare hope that your joy will be all the greater as you read, at last, these long-anticipated words: I am free. It will be two or three days, I believe, before I can truly settle things here. But Friday morning, come what may, I shall take the 10:23am from Victoria Station, arriving at 3:41pm. Will you meet me at the station? Is it indiscreet? I could take a cab, and that would be more prudent. But oh, how I hate prudence! How you loathe it too! And how well--you dare not deny it--a little rashness becomes me! Can you deprive yourself of that heart-quickening first glimpse of me in my traveling costume, stepping bravely down from the train? I thought not. So I will, I must, see you at Walsall station on Monday, at 3:41pm precisely!

    Ah, dearest, you would forgive all the giddiness of this letter--and much more besides--if you could have been in this house with me for these last few sorrowful weeks.
    *****
    In which Mary makes some deductions that rock Watson's world. Read "O Paradis" first.

    Summary

    'Sherlock scowled, “This is the thanks I receive for coming to fetch you.”

    “I never asked you to come get me!” Violet shouted as he slammed the bedroom door...'

    ~*~*~

    Hello and thank you for waiting so patiently for Part 4!

    Slight change in format; I've made the chapters shorter, but that means there are more chapters. The plan is to post once a week until this fic is out of WIP hell. Then I'll post twice a week (real life allowing...)

    There is another fandom in this fic that's not tagged because of spoilers.

    Huge thanks and love to my beta cadoganwest, who betas with a migraine. You don't get much more BAMF than that. XOXO.

    SO - let's start this story off with a trigger warning for violence and a promise of smut!

    Thank you for sticking with me and this story for so long and all the comments, kudos, bookmarks and subscriptions :^)

    Summary

    This is a complete collection of episode reviews for the Sherlock Holmes series filmed and broadcast between 1984 and 1995 by Granada Television (now ITV Granada) starring Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes and David Burke & Edward Hardwicke as Dr. Watson. I re/watched the whole series in the summer of 2017, because the entire world was on fire and I needed a diversion. I have been reading Holmes and Watson as a couple for at least 30 years now, so that perspective informs all of these reviews. There are occasional comparisons to what happened with Sherlock. Also, I usually discuss the canon story on which any given episode was based. As with all the other rewatches posted here, I am critical, but always from a place of love.

     

    All of these reviews were first posted to tumblr and will be cross-posted more or less intact. There may have to be slight adjustments made depending on whether AO3 treats the GIFs properly. Enjoy them again, or for the first time!

    Summary

    It’s falling from the bicycle that does it in the end. It doesn’t hurt, not really. Just a little graze on the knee. Applying the brakes too soon. School girl’s error. But, you tut all the same: “Gosh, that must sting, lovely.” Lovely. Lovely. You’re lovely.

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes has been saved from exile by Moriarty's apparent return.

    As reasons to be grateful go, he deems his rather perverse.

    But with Molly Hooper missing and the panic level in London rising, the game is on...

    Post HLV, basically my version of Season 4. Eventual Sherlolly, all sorts of espionage fun and games.
