    Summary

    All John Watson wants is the feeling of a freshly waxed surfboard under his feet and the hot California sun baking down onto his back. To finally go pro in the newly formed world of professional surfing and leave the dark memories of his past behind him as he rips across the face of a towering blue barrel. To lounge beside the beach bonfire every evening with an ice cold beer tucked into the cool sand beside him and listen to Pink Floyd and the Doors while the saltwater dries in his sun bleached hair.

    That's all he wants, that is, until the hot young phenom taking Oahu and the Hawaiian shores by storm steps up next to him in the sand in the second round of the 1976 International Surf Competition.

    Summary

    Box steps for a waltz are easy, even if you've never done them before, even if you learned at a strangers' wedding from another stranger, even if you're not quite sure what you're doing. But love? Love is something else, something without regimented one-two-three-four patterns, without rules.

    Maybe it's silly, but Kenma thinks he might be figuring it out.

    Summary

    One of the first things John did was to write up step-by-step instructions on how to conduct a proper job interview before handing it over to Mycroft for his perusal. There were no kidnapping, deserted car parks or stolen therapy notes anywhere on that list.

    (Or the one where John returned from the war and ended up working for Mycroft as his personal assistant slash doctor on retainer. Everything was fine, until he was sent to post bail for one Sherlock Holmes.)

    Summary

    A mer has four gifts for humanity.

    The tear of a mermaid gifts strength.
    The scale of a mermaid gifts invulnerability.
    The kiss of a mermaid gifts breath underwater.
    The heart of a mermaid gifts long life.
    If one possess all four? No one knows, for no one has ever possessed the heart of a mermaid.

    Summary

    Every merfolk is born with a song in their soul. One half of a duet, that will only be completed when they find their mate, singing with them on the full moon. Except the Deep Dwellers, who live within the abyss of the ocean, where no one can see them. They are said to be soulless. Lance is sure they're a myth... until he actually meets one, that is.
