~~~

Cold, Cold Heart

The cold got in his bones and would not leave.

It was a year ago that Sherlock had died along with Moriarty and John hadn’t felt warm since then. He’d not slept for weeks then when he did, he dreamt of Holmes.

Always dreamt of Holmes.

He’d taken to watching the ships come in and go out, not even the icy cold keeping him from his nightly watch.

Mary worried for him.

Mrs. Hudson worried for him as well and told him so quite often.

Some of his patients worried.

He simply could not shake the cold in his heart.

Illogical

He’d have thought the horse was real except that he saw everywhere he went that night. It was in the street in front of the tavern, in the road down by the river, standing in the alley when he got home.

If it wasn’t real, then what was it?

A ghost?

He’d never mention a word of this to Holmes. Holmes already thought he was the only person alive capable of pure logic.

He climbed the steps to their apartments.

Holmes greeted him at the door. “Did you see the horse?”

“What horse?”

“The one out in the street.”

“No.”

Summary: Sherlock has a surprise visitor.

~~~

WELL DONE

I was late getting back from surgery. I’d had several emergencies. I found Mycroft sitting in the parlor with Holmes.

“Mycroft has come with an invitation for us.”

I raised a brow. Holmes did not socialize at all so I didn’t see why he seemed so excited.

“We are invited to Buckingham Palace to meet her Royal Highness, Queen Victoria.”

I was thinking of VR shot into the wall of Holmes’ bedchamber. Mycroft smiled happily at me. It seemed that even he went out of his way to please Sherlock Holmes.

And he had done well this time.

Very well.

Summary: Watson has trouble with Holmes’ retirement.

~~~

THE BEEKEEPER

He said when he left London and retired that he would take up beekeeping, something I did not understand at all. Frankly, I never thought he would really stop being Sherlock Holmes and just be Mr. Holmes with a house in the country. I could never see him doing anything at all but being a consulting detective.

He did it though.

He married a woman half his age and moved to Sussex Downs. He even wrote a book about bees.

He says he is very happy in his new life. I’m glad one of us is. I miss him so.

THE MAN WITH THE UMBRELLA

John was in the phone booth, calling Scotland Yard yet again when he saw him go by, hurrying along in the rain with an umbrella almost obscuring his face. Almost but not quite.

He threw open the phone box door to call out but by the time he stepped out into the downpour, the man with umbrella was gone.

Sherlock was gone.

Had it been his friend, the man who meant more to him than anyone he’d known, even family? Were they all right? Was Sherlock dead? Had he been crazy in the end?

Nothing really mattered; Sherlock was gone.

Author’s Note: This is close to canon. I have seen the argument that Holmes is really Moriarty in more than one place.
Spoilers: Not really.
Summary: Is he Moriarty?

~~~

WHO IS HE?

Have I ever actually seen Moriarty? No, to tell you the truth, I cannot say that I have seen him face to face. Holmes pointed him out to me at the Train Station once but that was it. Several people, even Mycroft, asked me was I sure that he wasn’t something that Holmes made up. The truth is I am not sure.

But I know just the same.

Holmes is not a man who does things simply because they are right. He is more complex than that. Lestrade does things because they are right. Holmes does them because they amuse him as well as make things even. While he is not particularly moralistic, he does seem to want to help those who no one else can or will help. The poor man who everyone thinks is guilty, the person who flies in the face of convention, the woman who might seem ungrateful for a lunatic master.

Is he the Napoleon of crime? Would he do all the horrible things that Moriarty had his hand in? Could he?

Of course he could. He is by far the most intelligent man I know.

Would he?

You have read my accounts of his cases and his person. You tell me.

I’LL NEVER TELL

John thinks that I don’t know he has fallen in love with me. He also thinks that I am crazy as hell too. He’s wrong about the first. Not so much the second.

Bah!

What does Dr. Watson know?

I loved him the first time he looked at me with that spinsterish disapproval. He mustn’t know. It would ruin my awful image as a sociopath, though I do suspect I am more one than not. John just acts as if I’m normal, whatever that is.

He also thinks I don’t like those silly stories he writes about me but I do. Not that I’d ever tell him so. After putting up with Mycroft all my life, it is very refreshing to have someone care for me without pointing out all my mistakes each and every day. He still has that look but he seldom says anything.

And he tells the whole world I am brilliant.

All my life, I wondered why I never felt much of anything for anyone. John changed all that.

But I’ll never tell him. Not a word.

Beta: Larry, [personal profile] larian, and [profile] luin77. Thanks to you all!
Summary: What if Sherlock Holmes had investigated the Lizzie Borden case?

~~~

Just a few notes on the story itself:
The story of Lizzie Borden is true. I included my source materials at the end of the story if you’re interested in checking out the case. There are many sites that feature Miss Lizzie. My conclusions are my own but I think they are as plausible as any others Ive read.

Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson are taken from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s canon as much as possible. I chose to write in Watson’s first person in that spirit, since the majority of canon is also first person. Though I love all the Holmes and Watsons depicted in movies and television, I still sort of see Holmes as portrayed by Jeremy Brett. Watson maybe looks like Martin Freeman, who plays him on the new BBC Sherlock.

I hope you enjoy reading The Case of the Yankee Spinster as much I enjoyed writing it.

Alex
