    Not even Mary's death is enough to wipe her slate clean. Especially when she never died at all. John Watson must face up to his wife's past and keep his daughter safe. He doesn't ask for help, not from anyone.

    Except Sherlock Holmes.

    Summary

    Arthur gave Merlin his cloak thinking only of the warmth it would offer in a snowstorm. He never thought his manservant may be mistaken for him and snatched by bandits. Nor did he expect his dashing rescue of Merlin to turn his world so utterly on his head.

    Because the bandits hadn't kidnapped a prince. They'd snatched a sorcerer, and now captivity is the least of anyone's problems.

    Summary

    'Come on, Merlin!' he urged, shoving his hauberk in the saddlebag and peeling off the tunic beneath. Even topless, the air felt baked and close: sweltering in all the worst ways. 'You must be as miserable as the rest of us.'

    'You'll be more miserable when the horses have all wandered off and you've got nothing to eat.' Merlin swung down from the saddle and took the reins of Arthur's gelding. He'd long abandoned his jacket and had rolled up the sleeves of his red tunic. No neckerchief bound his throat, leaving the pale stretch of his throat and the sweat-damp hollow at its base on display.

    Arthur licked his lips, his next breath straining beneath his ribs as his throat ran dry. Yes, maybe it was for the best if Merlin didn't join them. Between the general tom-foolery and Gwaine's incessant flirting whenever Merlin got close, it might be a bit too much for Arthur's disposition to bear.

     

    Arthur admires everything he thinks he cannot have.

    Summary

    'You have no idea where we are, do you, Sire?'

    Arthur glared over his shoulder, biting back a smile when Merlin merely raised a challenging eyebrow. Anyone else would be suitably cowed, bowing and scraping in apology. Not Merlin, who had insulted him from the day they met and had never seen a good reason to stop in the years since.

    ‘You’re lost!’

    'Absolutely not,' Arthur replied.

    Summary

    It was only a matter of time. John knew that from the start. Now, he stared at the read-out on the thermometer before examining his reflection in the bathroom mirror. A glassy blue gaze stared back at him from beneath the dishevelled nest of his hair. Dark shadows smeared their warpaint beneath his eyes and his skin had an unhealthy, greyish tinge.

     

    John catches Covid-19, and it's up to Sherlock to take care of him within the sanctuary of Baker Street.

    Summary

    There is more wealth to Erebor's lands than its gold and gems. All it takes it the nurturing hand of a hobbit to allow the Lonely Mountain to flourish.

     

    It was easy to ignore the other dwarves staring at him. They were like faunts, really. Normally, they would turn their nose up at anything that didn’t bleed upon their plates. It had not taken him long to work out that if he pretended to hoard the vegetables, the rest of the Company decided they were missing out on something.

    Summary

    Healing after an injury is not just about the fitness of the body, but the strength of the mind. Dwalin knows that well.

     "Thorin’s ability may be limited, but Dwalin found himself impressed. In truth, he had not expected Thorin capable of lifting a blade, let alone wielding it. Yet it was not only that which made pride glow warm in his belly. It was the way Thorin moved, like rusty pieces shaking off their bonds to shift, slow at first, but with increasing grace.

    Oh, it would be many months before he could fight with the same power and skill he had possessed when they reclaimed the mountain. Yet for the first time, Dwalin felt a flicker of hope."

    Summary

    'We had a complaint about noise. Fighting. You wouldn't know anything about that, would you?' Greg scanned the area with his torch, noting the delicate turn of the wrists at the jumper's cuffs. Skeletal. No meat on him at all. An addict, then, if Greg had to guess. He had that sallow, thin-skinned look as well, the one that came when the next hit meant more than the next meal. A bad state to be in. 'You got a name?'
    The hesitation was just long enough for him to realise he wasn't getting the truth. 'William.'

    Or: Five times Greg met a man called William, and one he found a friend called Sherlock.

    Summary

    After many years of happy retirement in the Shire, Bilbo and Thorin receive three unexpected visitors with a quest of their own.

     

    Thorin sighed, knowing that he could not talk them out of it. For the first time, he understood the dwarven council's frustrations when they had refused to support his quest for Erebor. He had always thought them indifferent and callous, but now he suspected they had instead struggled with the same fear that had taken root in his belly. Not only for the dwarves who marched so boldly – blindly – into a beast's domain, but of what might happen should whatever lay in Moria break free.

    Summary

    John meets up with Greg for a few drinks down the pub to talk shop and Sherlock.

     

    'Can I ask you a question?'

     

    John wrinkled his nose. He knew that tone of voice. As a doctor, he heard it a lot. The tight, nervous tones of someone who was about to pull down their pants and ask you to look at something odd on their backside.

    Summary

    Sometimes the noise pressed into his ears and clamped a hand over his mouth, making it hard to draw his next breath. Sometimes, wings of panic fluttered their dark veils at the corner of his vision as the mountain's walls closed in around him, and the need to bolt outside beneath the bright blue vault of the sky burned in his bones.

     

    An hour, undisturbed. That's all he had wanted, and so to get it he had reached for the only secret he had left: the ring.

    Summary

    'You fence?' John didn't know why he was surprised, not when it made such perfect sense. 'Well enough to become Cambridge champion?'
    'No.' Sherlock didn't look up from his phone. 'Well enough to be British Champion.'

    The murder of the King's College fencing champion leads to revelations about Sherlock's past. Will it be the point that tips them from friends to lovers, or will they remain on the fence?

    Summary

    Bilbo is left to tend Thorin as he hovers on the brink of death after the Battle of the Five Armies. Is love enough to save Erebor's king, or is this the last farewell?

     

    "It reminded him of plucking daisy petals to the litany of loves-me, loves-me-not. Yet nothing so simple as love lay on his mind. He barely dared to think it, but his question was not a matter of the heart. It was more basic, more instinctive, and he couldn’t help but feel that with each strand of hair he tended he was divining Thorin’s destiny."

    Summary

    ‘Do you think we’re less than that – best friends? Or more?’
    John’s head pulled back, and the look he received suggested John was seriously wondering how someone so intelligent could be so stupid. ‘Well, definitely not less.’

     When stranded on a derelict barge at high tide, John and Sherlock reconsider their friendship.
