    Summary

    This is a group of interlinked short stories (most between 2000 and 7000 words) which tell the story of how Holmes and Watson really came to be separated at the Reichenbach Falls, and how they found each other again. Each story is in the form of a document--a letter, a journal, a surveillance report, an affidavit, etc.--which is linked to one or more ACD canon tales, and which tells us something about that story that was changed or suppressed in Watson's published account of it. Holmes/Watson, with glimpses of other relationships. Only one story ("The Boy in the Boat," which is f/f) is rated M. Everything else is T.

    ACD canon stories that inspired "Missing Pages" include: The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Sign of Four, "The Final Problem," "The Empty House," "The Naval Treaty," "The Greek Interpreter," "The Gloria Scott," "The Noble Bachelor," "The Copper Beeches," "The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax," "The Devil's Foot," "The Illustrious Client."

    Many stories work as stand-alones. If you want the whole arc, just read them in the order in which they are posted. Either way you slice it, I hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    The tenderness of it all may have seemed uncharacteristic to someone who didn't know better, to see such a calculating and analytical man on his knees with his nose pressed reverently to the softer spots of John's body without shame or awkwardness. John, however, was more than keenly aware that Sherlock did most things differently, but he did every one of them with all of his heart.

    Summary

    Bunny does not see the appeal in sunshine and spun gold and ruddy cheeks and daft, unfaltering loyalty.

    You, however, do.

    Summary

    Late one night John texts Sherlock asking if he ever thinks about how they used to be. Sherlock remembers it all too well.

    "Where are you? –SH

    It’s not what I want to ask, but it’s a start.

    …oscillating on the pavement –JW

    Come home –SH

    The door to the street opens almost immediately; you pause briefly to remove your coat. My heart races as I hear your cautious footsteps and reflect that 17 stairs have never taken this long to climb before. I stand from the couch and watch the door with warring feelings of trepidation and hope.

    Summary

    "We’re looking for him.” John pointed up the stairs to the portrait hanging proudly against the wall. It was blackened and torn in places, but two faces, one of a pretty woman and one of a dark haired boy remained unmarred, staring blankly out into the night.

    The boy’s eyebrows knitted together. “A royal?”

    Lestrade huffed. “The lost duke, yes. Haven’t you heard of him?”
