Rating: G
Characters, including any pairing(s): John Watson; main focus is on Watson & Holmes, also touches on John/Mary marriage
Warnings: minor character death, non-specific references to illness and depression
Summary: Glimpses of a shared life.
Author’s note: Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] thesmallhobbit for the beta! I know that [livejournal.com profile] scfrankles has a special love for micro-fiction, so I chose to use the "1sentence" format, wherein one takes a prompt table of 50 words, writes one sentence for each prompt, and ultimately combines them to examine a character or relationship.
Disclaimer: Thank you, Sir Arthur. Also, I am grateful to the [livejournal.com profile] 1sentence LJ community for the format and also for the prompt table (I used their theme set Epsilon).

Title: The Case of the Rose by Another Name
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] winryweiss
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hiddenlacuna
Rating: General
Characters, including any pairing(s): Sherlock Holmes, Dr. John Watson
Words: 2076
Warnings, if any: None
Summary: Dr. Watson is called to attend to Holmes, who has a terrible cold after a case. Holmes recounts the case that led him to become ill. Pretty much a Victorian Shaggy Dog story.

As any writer knows, there are some stories which simply are not fit to be published... )

Author: [livejournal.com profile] inamac
Rating: G
Characters/Pairings: Watson, Mycroft
Warnings: None
Word Count: 1400
Summary: Mycroft Holmes visits Doctor Watson with a request and an impossible task.
AN: My recipient asked for 'a series of moments in which Mycroft absolutely and indignantly refuses to do things', and also pointed me at 'The Reigate Squires'. This is the (I hope happy) result.

Today the names of the Netherlands Sumatra Company and of Theodore Maupertuis are notorious... )

Characters, including any pairing(s): Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, a handful of OC
Warnings: None
Summary: A visit to the countryside turns up a murder.
Disclaimer: The characters presented herein were created by Sir ACD.
A/N: Thanks to my beta, [livejournal.com profile] thesmallhobbit, who, as usual, did a wonderful job, but also corrected my errors with some of the terms. [livejournal.com profile] kizzia, case fic is not my usual area and I stretched myself a bit, trying to create and solve a crime, but I hope you enjoy this.

Characters/pairings: Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Warnings: none
Betaed by and discussed with [livejournal.com profile] mrs_sweetpeach, who literally saved this fic. Thank you so much!
Summary: Mycroft Holmes ponders his own relationship with his sibling, the wonder that is John Watson, and the fact that, in spite of evidence that points to the contrary, the universe may not be unkind after all.

An eternal conundrum of our existence, one of the few I have been unable to grasp... )

Characters, including any pairing(s): John Watson/Mary Watson, Sherlock Holmes
Warnings: N/A
Word Count: 3,288
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.)

Rating: G
Characters: Mr Sherlock Holmes, Dr John Watson, Inspector Lestrade
Warnings: None
Summary: Watson is feeling melancholy, but things start to improve when Lestrade comes to discuss his case with Holmes. A case that will confuse even Holmes at the beginning.
Disclaimer: My thanks to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for creating these wonderful characters.
Author's Note: Many thanks to my beta [livejournal.com profile] canonisrelative, who made all the difference.

Title: The Adventure of the Bishopsgate Jewel Case
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] truly_bohemian
Author: [livejournal.com profile] inamac
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.
