60 for 60 ficlets: 60 words for each of the 60 Arthur Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes stories

Chapter Text

Wine: the curse of the Brackenstalls and a blessing to the observant detective. Whisky: the downfall of Henry Watson and a fate graven onto the case of a pocket watch and the memory of a brother. Brandy: sweet balm after a hundred wintry days at the chase and a thousand dark days at the edge of a waterfall, looking down.
