    Summary

    After five good years, one difficult one, and six months that were hell, John and Sherlock live apart but still share custody of seven-year-old Rosie. With therapy, supportive friends, and those inevitable dance recitals and open school days forcing them into each other's paths again and again, anger and bitterness fade, leaving space for a new view of each other across the divide.

    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!
