    Summary

    The world tunes in nightly for Sherlock, the ultimate in reality TV: Sherlock Holmes, a real person with a legendary name, unknowingly lives out his life in a staged setting contrived by his brother. Things get complicated when a retired army doctor joins the show to play the part of Sherlock's closest friend.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Such a well executed cross over. I have always loved the Truman Show, and the idea of the world's greatest detective unaware of his own reality is such a good concept.

    In some chapters it was a little tricky to tell what perspective it was being told from. But overall I thought the plotting and the character elements of the story were lovely.

    His fingers tremble as he dials and he can’t force them steady. Familiar number, even though he hasn’t used it in two years. He isn’t even sure he should be calling it now, but she’d asked. She’d made him promise.

    What if love doesn’t look like love? Does that mean it isn’t there? That it doesn’t exist? Is absence of evidence the same as evidence of absence?

    Summary

    It's just an average evening at 221B.

      “What could you possibly want to talk to John for?” Sherlock demands and realizes a nanosecond too late that John might find that a tiny bit offensive and make…ah, yes… that face.

     Mycroft wants advice. Sherlock wants a clue. John wants a cup of tea.

    I come across this fic every now and then and each time I am delighted to find it - it is a self contained glimpse of such a wonderful world. And I love this vision of them, I can completely see Sherlock needing more things to focus on. Five minutes of pure happiness - you can't ask for more than things!
