  3. Summary

    This is a quasi-historical AU of the BBC Sherlock series set (more or less) in three fantasy kingdoms devised by the Bronte children.

    The time period is roughly the late seventeenth century and readers should bear in mind that this saga contains the doings of a set of supremely dysfunctional more-or-less European Royal families steeped in the "divine right of kings" ideology of monarchy, filtered through an early nineteenth century Romantic/Gothick sensibility and then depicted using the freedom of expression afforded by the early twenty-first century internet.

    Furthermore, if the Greek myths contemplated it, some member of the Royal houses of Gondal, Angria or Gaaldine has probably put it into practice somewhere.

    Gentle reader, consider yourself advised accordingly.

    Summary

    In the twelve years since the Chiyan case, Jingyan has made no mention of the Chiyan Fleet, Lin Shu, Prince Qi, or anyone else killed in the conspiracy. Mei Changsu has waited for that final proof while he gathered his secrets and lined up his pawns, but now he can't wait any longer: he has to know what Jingyan's true feelings are before he arrives in Jinling. So he arranges an ambush on his own ship in order to meet with him. Will Jingyan help him bring justice to his army of dead – or does he believe justice has already been served?

    Summary

    As soon as Aubrey Thyme, psychotherapist, had opened her office door and seen her new client, Anthony J. Crowley, sitting in her waiting area, she was observing and assessing him. At first glance, she paid attention to the following:

    --His clothing was expensive and stylish;
    --He wore very strange but noticeable cologne;
    --His relationship to the seat he occupied could only, very loosely, be described as “sitting;”
    --He looked angry;
    --He was wearing sunglasses.

    What Aubrey Thyme, a professional, thought, upon first seeing her new client was: you’re going to be a fun one, aren’t you?
