    Summary

    Two days after arriving in London he first spotted a camera. His mind had instantly flown back to that dull hour whiled away in Mycroft’s office, crumbling biscuits on the Chesterfield and leafing through Mr Boothby’s tedious prose lauding the merits of surveillance. Behind each of those cameras he imagines Mycroft with his eye fixed to the lens in a perpetual search for Sherlock’s face amidst the seething cesspool of humanity spilling across London’s streets day in day out

    Summary

    If we shadows have offended, think but this and all is mended, that you have but slumber’d here, while these visions did appear. And this weak and idle theme, no more yielding but a dream.

    Summary

    Sherlock had published an interesting thesis on the splintering of various woods on his website. As well as an equally fascinating treatise on different types of ropes and knots and the best techniques for securing someone. Obviously, his captors had followed those instructions to the letter; thereby disproving John’s theory nobody took notice of Sherlock’s website. A victory, perhaps, but one Sherlock felt he could have done without. Trust his readership to turn the tables on the author.

     

    Morons.

    Summary

    Oh Christ, the Freak will be like a dog with two tails if she turns to him for assistance. Sally can feel her hands curling into fists ready to punch the condescending smirk off his face as she glares at the lift panel, willing the lift to go faster. But this is about Susy, Sally tells herself, not about him or Sally’s abhorrence of the atrocious git. She’s still convinced he gets off on it but he can wank himself into a stupor over Susy’s disappearance for all she cares as long as he finds her.

    Summary

    No, he really should let Trevor run ahead with his dastardly plot and merely twist and knot the manoeuvre into the rope for the rascal to hang himself with.

    Summary

    “So sorry to intrude but may I just check?” Mycroft enquired in a tone as silkily smooth as a pint of clotted cream. “Do you two really intend to go rushing after a murderer four days after Sherlock OD’d?”

    Summary

    “That’s enough,” John said, putting down his cup a little more forcefully than he intended. Even his patience had its limits and any comparison with Mycroft meant Sherlock came dangerously close to crossing that line. “If you’ve solved the case from the comfort of our sofa I’ll be happy to text Iorwerth the outcome. If not, I’d like to text him we’ll be on the first train tomorrow. A murder and a kidnapping to boot. If it had been anyone else you’d be leaping about shouting Christmas had come early.”

    Summary

    “Body snatchers,” whispered a girl. “Oh, Mr Holmes. Oh, Davey…” Her eyes watered and with heaving shoulders she buried her face into her neighbour’s overcoat.

    Sherlock looked perplexed. “Is this one of those pop culture things?” he asked the room at large.

    John nodded and drank the last of his tea while his flatmate rolled his eyes before leaping to his feet.

    “Right. I can’t think with so much stupidity in the room.” He began making shooing motions at the distraught girl and the boy who sat comforting her as well as the others. “Everybody out. John and I don’t have time for this nonsense. Out, out, all of you.”

    Summary

    “I know all about removing stains,” Sherlock answered, now toying with a tendril of yellow hair. “Coal smudges, wine, blood, and also the most persistent of all which is…” Staring at Mycroft he brought his lush mouth close to Victor’s ear and whispered.

    Victor flushed – scandalised – and giggled. “Oh, Sherrinford. Oh, you shouldn’t say such things.” A possessive hand landed on Sherlock’s thigh, claiming him and Victor looked daggers at Mycroft, clearly considering his presence superfluous.

    Summary

    Before Sherlock can protest Mrs Hudson switches on the telly, and begins fussing with the tea set. He watches the opening credits with a scowl on his face and can feel it deepening when the story starts to unfold, all nostalgia for fake jolly old England.

    Summary

    “God,” he says, “you’re gorgeous, so gorgeous like this.” He reaches out to touch the screen, the perfect cupid bow of the upper lip that’s trembling in concentration. The love he feels in that moment is so overwhelming it aches and he almost sobs with the discomfort.

    Summary

    After she’d dried off her face and restored her make-up she stashed the socks in the drawer where she kept her stockings. Every now and then her hand inadvertently brushed them as she went in search of a pair. Each time the contact would send a small shiver of bliss rippling down her spine.

    Summary

    “I can crochet,” Sherlock bristles, looking as if he’d like to spear Mycroft on one of his needles.

    Mycroft raises one eloquent eyebrow and ventures a glance at the tea cosy. “Can you?” he murmurs and resumes his stitching.

    Summary

    “Good evening, constable, my name is Mycroft Holmes. I realise the name means nothing to you now, but it will remain with you for the rest of your life. Whether that will be in a pleasant or a less agreeable capacity depends on the speed with which you hand me your phone.”

    Summary

    “Fine.” A sharp click in his ear told Mycroft Sherlock had ended the call, robbing Mycroft of the chance to implore him to be careful. Slowly, he put the receiver back in place. Perhaps that was better, after all.
