  1. Summary

    On a world where Alexander the Great left a dynasty behind him and magic is a part of everyday life the lives of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are somewhat different. This series is meant to be glimpses into their lives and the lives of those around them in preparation for a larger work that will finally bring them together as they always should be.

  3. Summary

    Every day I pick a card or three randomly from my Tarot deck as a prompt. I thought it was going to be a series of one shots but a plot has evolved and no one knows the paths it will take to get to a happy ending. Not even me.

    Starts directly after the Tarmac Scene.

    Summary

    The night before they travel to Dorset to spend Christmas with Sherlock's parents and John's wife, 221 Baker Street is peaceful with the smell of baking, flickering candles and presents under the tree. But Father Christmas can't be relied upon to bring the boys their heart's desires. Just as well Mrs Hudson - who is NOT a fairy godmother OR their housekeeper, thank you very much - is so good at her job.

    Summary

    This is the story of a young consulting detective who wants nothing to do with marriage and an army doctor who wants to find true love. It's 2020 post-Brexit England and the British government is encouraging arranged marriages. Candidates meet through state-run agencies and date in hopes of finding love (and tax benefits). Sherlock doesn't need or want a spouse, at least not until John Watson shows up. Hesitant to give in to his more carnal urges because of the way they derail his mind, how will Sherlock progress toward the more intimate aspects of a relationship? The answer lies in a very special wedding gift.
