    Summary

    Sometimes the universe winks at you, just to let you know.

    Excerpt: John is just muttering some nonsense about bit different from my day when they enter the lab. A tall fellow with dark, curly hair is using a pipette to drop some liquid into a Petri dish. Hearing John’s voice, he looks up.
    Sherlock Holmes.
    They both freeze for a moment. He stares into those grey eyes that haven’t changed, still seeing every detail.
    Holmes gives a tiny smirk. “Afghanistan or Iraq?”
    It’s been years, and he is surprised at how much it still hurts. Realising that he’s staring, he clears his throat, shuffles his feet, and mumbles something about an appointment he’s forgotten.

    OR: John and Sherlock meet again, years after they were school boys together. John hasn't forgotten why he still hates Sherlock Holmes.

    Summary

    "He had even begun regretting his choice of room, the familiar pattern on the aging wallpaper a sore reminder of the day Havers informed him he was leaving. His once office, now transformed into a lavish cell, trapping him with nothing but the harrowing silence and his thoughts."

    The Captain is reminded of a lost love from his past.
    It's just a coincidence that Pat is always there to support him.

    Summary

    He set the book aside, and scoffed at the second one in the pile. Coming Up For Air. A bit on the nose, that, presenting him with the story of the man taking himself back to his childhood home, looking to recapture the golden years. You can’t ever go home again. That’s what Orwell was trying to say with that one. Well, Alfred had come home. And he was going to have to make it work.

     

    Captain Alfred Broadhurst (PhD) has a new life in his old town; new flat, new job with new students, and a new book to write too. Patrick Butcher, university librarian, part-time novelist and doting dad, is struggling with his new book and feeling a bit melancholy in a way he can't quite put his finger on.

    It isn't going to take much to end up in each other's orbits.

    Summary

    "He looked quite peaceful, the lines of his face softened by rest.

    He knew he was dead of course."

    The Captain always thought that life ended when you died- turns out it actually begins.
