    Summary

    "[...] lesbians and gay men writing letters to their lovers and friends faced the special problem of wartime censorship. Military censors, of course, cut out all information that might aid the enemy, but this surveillance made it necessary for gay and lesbian correspondents to be careful not to expose their homosexuality. To get around this, gay men befriended sympathetic censors or tricked others by using campy phrases, signing a woman’s name (like Dixie or Daisy), or changing the gender of their friends. Sailors became WAVEs, boyfriends became WACs, Robert became Roberta. There must exist, hidden in closets and attics all over America, a huge literature of these World War II letters between lesbians and between gay men that would tell us even more about this important part of American history." - Coming Out Under Fire: The History of Gay Men and Women In World War Two, by Allan Berube

    Summary

    The last thing John expected when he got home from a long day at the surgery was for Sherlock to spring out of seemingly nowhere and drop onto the couch beside him just as he’d kicked off his shoes and announce, “Right, I’ve done some research and I believe we should be married."

     

     

     

     

    John and Sherlock weren't even dating when Sherlock began listing reasons they should marry. At first, John thought he was completely out of his mind. However, after a failed date with the perfect woman, John is forced to realize that maybe Sherlock isn't so far off base after all.
