    Summary

    COMPLETE!
    The Louvre Museum in Paris is planning to host the celebrated Winter Fabergé Egg for its winter exhibition - quite the feat as it has not been on public display since 2002. However there is a snag: whispers of a world-renowned master-thief with his eyes set on the valuable prize. The curator has asked the famous Sherlock Holmes to consult on security, but the detective needs a lot of convincing: he is after all a bit busy with trying to woo a certain clueless ex-army doctor…

    At the same time, John is attempting to balance work, missing Rosie who is off on her gap year, a volunteer gig at a local London orphanage, and seething jealousy upon the arrival of an apparent old friend of Sherlock’s. Attempting to foil the heist of the century while remaining friendly and objective might just be a step too far...

    A Christmas crime caper packed full of misdirection, miscommunication and mistletoe, set against the romantic backdrop of London and Paris in the winter. Thrown into all this, will our two idiots finally manage to see what has been right in front of them all along?

    Chapters 1-3 are the complete fic, chapters 4-6 are the accompanying ARTWORK from the amazing alifetimeaheadtoprovethat!

    Summary

    Since the time he could walk and talk (and begin to understand how to manipulate people), Sherlock Holmes has sometimes been called a single-minded terror. There is quite a list of people who have had the utter misfortune of being the center of his attention and subject to his meddlesome antics: Mycroft, Lestrade and almost all at the Met, the wallpaper, his mum, the steady parade of temporarily-unemployed butlers and nannies, the skull on the mantel, his professors at uni, Mrs. Hudson. The list is long, and in Sherlock's opinion, tedious. It is about to get longer.

    Sherlock has now set his sights on John Watson. Heaven help the man.

    *****************************
    Sherlock's unquestionable genius is accompanied by a surprising dearth of common sense, especially when it comes to his relationship with John. So when Sherlock has given both roots and wings to a radical idea, be assured that John is not going to be pleased. Hopefully, he will be persuaded that Sherlock, despite his questionable means, did actually mean to do a good thing.

    Summary

    The last time, it was transactional, uncomplicated. Now, it’s something else. Last time they got the basics covered in a twenty minute conversation, went to Sherlock’s hotel. In the morning, they’d parted ways easily, knowing they would never see one another again.

    But Sherlock, socially tone-deaf, has made everything awkward. What was a perfect movie— exposition, climax, end credits rolling— is now the disappointing sequel nobody asked for.

    Except he did. He asked John, and John said yes.

    Summary: A year after a one-night encounter in a hotel in Germany, Sherlock texts Watson.
