    Though nobody would be able to tell — it was winter, and she had official Ministry robes on over her other clothes — she was, for the first time, wearing a skirt to work.
    And today, she was going to ask her coworkers to call her Audrey.

    -

    In which efficient bureaucracy gives Audrey a much needed confidence boost about coming out.

    Summary

    Miss Gibson said, “In the spirit of truthful admission, Miss Bennet, I intend to spend some time devising the right question for you. If I may see you again?”

    Why did that sound strange? But she always sounded strange to people herself. And it was a familiar kind of strangeness, as if it were something she had heard before, only not like this.

    Mary, constrained by the principles of truth, could only admit that she would enjoy that very much.

    Summary

    Dearest,

    I know this delay must have been hateful to you, but I really could not have written earlier. I dare hope that your joy will be all the greater as you read, at last, these long-anticipated words: I am free. It will be two or three days, I believe, before I can truly settle things here. But Friday morning, come what may, I shall take the 10:23am from Victoria Station, arriving at 3:41pm. Will you meet me at the station? Is it indiscreet? I could take a cab, and that would be more prudent. But oh, how I hate prudence! How you loathe it too! And how well--you dare not deny it--a little rashness becomes me! Can you deprive yourself of that heart-quickening first glimpse of me in my traveling costume, stepping bravely down from the train? I thought not. So I will, I must, see you at Walsall station on Monday, at 3:41pm precisely!

    Ah, dearest, you would forgive all the giddiness of this letter--and much more besides--if you could have been in this house with me for these last few sorrowful weeks.
    *****
    In which Mary makes some deductions that rock Watson's world. Read "O Paradis" first.

    Summary

    Watson sits down in 1925 to retell a story of his and Holmes's past, specifically from April and May of 1895. This case was kept under wraps until 50 years after Watson's death, left to be read by an era more willing to embrace the truth of his life with Sherlock Holmes. During the three trials in the spring of '95 with Oscar Wilde at the Old Bailey courthouse, Holmes and Watson vanished from London to the English countryside to find safety from oppressive eyes. A minor burglary case sparks an elaborate escape plan put in place for two young women not dissimilar to themselves.

    In this romance and adventure story, we see the mysterious untold story behind the serially published cases of the Victorian era. A love story between Holmes and Watson that has waited far too long to be told emerges effortlessly, and even in times of great societal struggle, they manage to maintain safety and happiness with the help of one another.
