    Summary

    When John and Sherlock are attacked on a London street late at night by strangers wielding mysterious weapons, Sherlock hovers over John's fallen form and calls for help. He certainly doesn't expect a three-decker purple bus to appear and whisk them away to what can only be a secret experimental medical facility. Hallucination and reality butt heads as Sherlock grapples to understand a world he has deleted, and learns that John Watson is even more than he seems, but still all that he's wanted.

    Summary

    All John Watson wants is the feeling of a freshly waxed surfboard under his feet and the hot California sun baking down onto his back. To finally go pro in the newly formed world of professional surfing and leave the dark memories of his past behind him as he rips across the face of a towering blue barrel. To lounge beside the beach bonfire every evening with an ice cold beer tucked into the cool sand beside him and listen to Pink Floyd and the Doors while the saltwater dries in his sun bleached hair.

    That's all he wants, that is, until the hot young phenom taking Oahu and the Hawaiian shores by storm steps up next to him in the sand in the second round of the 1976 International Surf Competition.

    Summary

    "Xie [...] had invented an entire pleasure-industry by combining superior visual aesthetics with impeccable personal attention. Drasha salons were by that time a feature of any even half-decent house of repose in every pleasure district in the British Isles, but once upon a time, when Xie debuted, there had been only one, and Xie had named it: the Icehouse."

    *
    In a contemporary dystopia, Unity is peace--despite the fact unsanctioned information, illicit currency, and every sort of danger flows unchecked in the world's pleasure districts.

    John Watson, a weary hired gun, is assigned by the mysterious Mentor to investigate a subversive element lurking in the Icehouse, the world's most famous House of Repose. As accustomed as he is to dealing with the unexpected, John is nevertheless woefully unprepared to meet the gem of the Ice house, Xie, the world renowned "drashaskaya," the living work of art after which all other drashas are modeled.

    In sumptuous suites, amid trailing puddles of silk and fervent whispers in the night, John soon learns that nothing is as it seems in the floating world of London's pleasure district.

    Summary

    Fantasy AU: John is Prince of the the Kingdom of Earth, Bracken. In an attempt to stave off invasion from the God-King Moriarty of the Kingdom of Fire, Hildonia, Prince John travels to Skyland to secure the smaller Kingdom of the Wind as a Vassal state. To do this, though, he must forge a union with the Vestal Prince, a religious icon as well as a member of the royal Holmes family. Skyland is home to a rift to the astral plane, and very strategic point to have under their control, so Prince John agrees, taking home a reluctant mate that has been raised since infancy to believe he is nothing more than property of the kingdom he was born in or the mate he is given to. John doesn't like this idea, and intends to make every effort to show the reluctant Sherlock that he is free to be himself, despite the starvation and beatings being himself has caused him in the past.
