  1. Summary

    A non-canonical, not-quite-an-AU retelling of ACD's detective and his doctor. The stories assume that Watson was an unreliable narrator attempting to make his telling of their cases acceptable for publication. As a narrator, Holmes is more reliable, but justifies many things to himself as he struggles to understand and express his feelings for Watson.

  4. Summary

    Fin de Siècle: the end of a century, especially the 19th century; the closing of one era and onset of another.

    A Victorian AU. Each part can be read on its own, but there is an overall arc to the stories that will make more sense if read in order. Only one part of this is somewhat explicit.

  5. Summary

    Imagine the perfect Reichenbach return story: There's no Mary. They've both realised their feelings and finally admit it. Their lives begin to fit together again. Angst? Maybe a bit.

    Here's a set of stories with a single theme: Sherlock comes home to John. I have calculated several possibilities that might have happened instead of what we saw in The Empty Hearse, each with a guaranteed happy ending.

    Summary

    John is not always the best at keeping up with Sherlock’s well-laid plans. It’s likely he wasn’t expecting to wake up handcuffed to his own bed—or with his lanky flatmate lain out over him, pinning him to the mattress.

    Perhaps he ought to have been.
