    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes won't put John Watson in harm's way, no matter how much they love each other. In fact, he'll do anything to keep him safe--including dying and coming back to life again. But Watson doesn't want safety: he wants Holmes.
     
    “So,” he said slowly. “What is it you expect, then? Shall we sit across the breakfast table and gaze longingly at each other over the butter dish, silently breaking into pieces? Shall we retire to our separate bedrooms each night, and listen to each other breathing through the wall?”

    “Yes,” I answered, for when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

    Summary

    The first perjury I committed to paper, as a method originally of self-placation and comfort, was on the eve of that darkest day of my life - that lie that many have undoubtedly read and believed within the text of The Final Problem, as that 'adventure' came to be titled when finally I had wrung from it most of my desperate emotion to make it suitable for publication.
