Summary: “I have not seen a paper for some days." Dr. Watson in The Boscombe Valley Mystery
Disclaimer: Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson were created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but are now in the public domain. Dr. Watson probably isn’t terribly happy about this.
Author’s Notes: [livejournal.com profile] capt_facepalm offered the prompt “honour among thieves”, with the kind reassurance that you could “take it any way you like”, and this is what I managed to come up with. Some scenes and lines in my fic have been adapted from BOSC. Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] thesmallhobbit for the beta! (Further author’s note at end.)

Notes: I am no expert on the conditions or life in the East End of London at the end of the 19th century so I apologize in advance.

Summary: Sherlock Holmes lays down his account of the events of The Adventure Of The Empty House, the years leading up to it, and the night that followed.
Notes: This draws heavily on EMPT, though there are a few bits where I play fast and loose with canon. But Watson is widely known to be a somewhat unreliable narrator, and I hope that [livejournal.com profile] fictionforlife will forgive me and enjoy this story!

Characters: Holmes, Watson, Athelney Jones
Rating: Gen
Warnings: None
Word Count: 3000
Summary: An afternoon stroll along a London thoroughfare leads to the uncovering of a four-hundred year old mystery.
Acknowledgements: My thanks to our Mod for patience when I was late finishing this, and to my partner and beta for keeping my nose to the grindstone (or the laptop). And to [livejournal.com profile] truly_bohemian for a request for casefic (I regret I could not meet your other suggestions).
AN: Researching Victorian Bishopsgate was fascinating, and very sad. Not one of the buildings which survived the Great Fire and past which Holmes and Watson might have strolled in 1886 is now standing. The seventeenth century timber frontage of Sir Paul Pinder's House, then an inn, has been preserved in the Victoria and Albert museum. Liverpool Street Station now stands on the site.

Characters/Pairings: Holmes/Watson UST; Watson & Lestrade (friendship).
Summary: When the priest of an ancient church approaches Holmes with a ghostly tale, the detective welcomes the case as a pleasant distraction. But the adventure proves to be a dangerous one, and Watson makes a discovery he will never bring himself to share.
A/N: Dear recipient, you asked for Lestrade action, here you have some Lestrade action. I hope it’s to your liking! I also hope you’re ok with Holmes/Watson UST; this is pretty much my headcanon for the pre-Reichenbach era, so I allowed myself to keep it.
I apologize for any archeological and geographical mistakes. I used wikipedia to my best knowledge, but errors are entirely possible. (But then, I am in good company. *points to certain stories about snakes and milk*)

Perhaps his long association with Mr Sherlock Holmes gave my uncle a greater understanding… )
