    Summary

    Visiting professors John Watson and Sherlock Holmes are longtime academic rivals — and now unwilling office mates — at a prestigious American university. When their tense arguments give way to an undercurrent of mutual attraction, their war of wits turns into something more personal — until it goes off course. A party, a phone number, and deserted office at night might just bring them back together.

    Summary

    We lie there so long, I feel myself starting to drift off. The pleasant dizziness starts to claim me and it's becoming harder and harder to keep my eyes open. I'm woken only by the sound of his voice filling the silence.

    "Don't get married."

    The sentence is so soft I almost don't hear him. I glance over, unsure as to what to say next. He keeps his eyes fixed on the ceiling, avoiding meeting my gaze.

    "What?" I say because I can't think of anything else. How do you reply to that kind of statement?

     

    - Short ficlet about what could have happened if they hadn't had a case on the stag night. -

    Summary

    "He pulls out the ID card – the one that Sherlock had somehow seen when he was buying drinks at that awful club. He’s had other ID cards since then but he's hung on to this one for some reason. He looks at the image of his face, young and pale and idealistic, and he knows that just a month later that man would have found and lost the love of his life within a week, and even knowing that, John wouldn’t change a single thing."

    Summary

    “And we”, he growled, “are here why, exactly?”

    Sherlock painted the picture of innocence as he answered, ever so glibly: “I thought you’d enjoy a night out with friends. Mrs Hudson still has Rosie, we might as well make use of the free evening.”

    It might have worked, if John couldn’t see Greg facepalming out of the corner of his eye. Molly was staring at her feet as if trying very hard not to give anything away. Really, none of them were good actors. Something was going on and all three of them were in on it.

     

    Expecting to simply return home after a hideously simple case for an evening in with his flatmate and his daughter, John instead finds himself being dragged to a pub by Sherlock. But what starts out as a nice evening catching up with Molly and Greg soon reveals itself as a scheme to help him get back in the dating game after Mary's death. Too bad that John really only wants one person - and he's trying to set him up.
