    Summary

    “You have a visitor,” Mrs Hudson added irritably, as John trailed after Holmes and Billy, “Oh, not you, Doctor,” she added, as John paused on habit. “But tell Mister Holmes that I’ll not abide the police banging up and down the house at all hours. What will the neighbours think? I’ll not get any other lodgers!”

    This, John reflected, as he retreated from Mrs Hudson’s womanly wrath, was precisely why his landlady’s role was restricted to a ‘plot device’ in his short stories. The Strand’s readers had turned out to have a surprisingly prodigious appetite for his case notes - or, as Holmes tended to call them, his ‘over-romanticised recollections’, but John rather doubted that his readers would have stood for pages upon pages depicting Mrs Hudson’s passionate tirades about the Right and Proper Way To Behave as a Gentleman Lodger. She could write a book. Holmes would still break all the rules.

    Summary

    Mycroft has always protected his younger brother, but there are some things he just can't control. Sherlock's relationship with John Watson is one of them. That doesn't mean that he's not going to try, but in the end, sometimes Sherlock makes his own choices.

    And John Watson might just be a match for Mycroft when it comes to protecting Sherlock.

    Summary

    Sollemnis Populusque Romanus

    The year is AD 68. Emperor Nero is on the throne, the Judaean Revolt is nearing its end under the firm hands of Vespasian and his son Titus, and Marcus Caelius Piso Vannus, son of a British freedman and former surgeon to the Fifteenth Apollonian Legion, has just returned from the provinces with an injured shoulder and no veteran's benefits to rent a shabby room in the shadow of the city wall. Thrust into his life, however, comes Amulius Cornelius Celatus -- a noble man from an ancient family, with good hair, a better toga, and the biggest ego this side of the Tiber. You wouldn't think they'd end up living together, let alone fighting crime; but then, neither would you think that one shadowy criminal figure orchestrated the fire of 64...

    Summary

    On paper, a bacon sarnie and a cup of good coffee isn’t exactly the kind of thanks one should receive for rescuing someone’s family member from an overdose; but Lestrade thinks that it’s possibly the best one he’s ever received.
