    Summary

    Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.

     

    Mary Russell is living out her later years in her South Downs cottage. She is all too pleased to take on the challenge of deducing some things about her new neighbours.

    (Mary Russell may be a detective, but she is also a student of theology.)

    Summary

    “...and it was a shock, as if an adder had appeared in the bathwater between my toes, to realise that for the first time in my life I was uncomfortable in the presence of Sherlock Holmes.” - MREG, p 63-64

    However, that was not strictly true. Russell was, after all, a girl coming of age under the tutelage of a man born and raised in a different era. And it was Mrs Hudson, not Sherlock Holmes, who first taught Russell the technique of scrubbing blood from one’s garments.

    Summary

    Mary Russell had always wondered why Holmes kept a bumbling fool like Watson around, considering herself a much more worthy intellectual match. But one day, arriving at Holmes' cottage unexpectedly, she learns exactly why he still keeps Watson around.

    No, there is NOT character death. This is "In Memory" of a different kind. A poem from Holmes' POV (as if he ever wrote poetry! ...but...whatever... :D ) that takes place during BEEK.

    Summary

    Set during Garment of Shadows, from the Mary Russell series. letting my sad imagination run away with me. Mary's memories are sketchy but she's sure Holmes might be able to help restore them. Bad summary hopefully better writing. Brief one-shot. Obviously not ACD or Ms King.. I wish!

    Summary

    “I have always enjoyed walking at night,” Chava says, still smiling just a little. “This ship is difficult, so little space and so many strong personalities prowling it, no room for roaming. I could almost wish for a walk across the seabed.”

    She’s still smiling her small smile, but Mary has the strangest impression she means that quite literally, in a way that isn’t macabre at all.

    Summary

    In the ACD stories Sherlock Holmes is canonically asexual (”canonically”, as in: it’s not like he literally says that but explaining why he’s *not* requires much more mental gymnastics than just going with what is portrayed by his words, actions, and non-interest in canon), but in pretty much every adaptation ever made, people feel the need to shoehorn in a love interest (usually Irene Adler, who honestly deserves better). [And this is despite the fact that I rather enjoyed most of the Mary Russell novels.]

    Summary

    Who would we be, we Holmeses, if not for The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes? Mere curiosities buried in old newspapers, forgotten mentions in mouldering secret government archives and unsealed police records? Or would we be something else we never thought — were explicitly trained not — to imagine?
