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*)

Disclaimer: Holmes and Watson, many of the references here, and even the title are Doyle's. Other bits are taken from the Sherlock BBC series, and from The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes. I expand because I love.

Characters: John Watson, Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft Holmes, OCs. Pairing: H/W (established).
Wordcount: 14,925
Warnings: Character death (OC), v. mild horror, period-appropriate racism, angst, H/C.
Summary. Casefic. A diamond believed to be the mysterious Daria-i-Noor finds its way to the British Museum. An old friend from Holmes’s Montague Street days fears a plot to steal it, leading our boys onto the trail of a veteran of the Sepoy Revolt.
Disclaimer – All ACD’s works are public domain in the UK, but of course we are eternally indebted to him for so diligently publishing Watson’s biographies. Political figures and companies referred to are historically accurate, but all major characters involved are completely fictional, and do not intend to reflect any real person, living or dead.
A certain pink diamond is still at large, and its true location remains a matter of debate today.
