Two Georgian Gentlemen: A Tale

The two Gentlemen returning home, after an adventure.

John Watson reflects on how he first met Sherlock, while the two ready for a Christmas break. Another beautiful tale by mydogwatson, a story that was also a special gift from my favorite writer, I loved receiving a special copy in the mail.

A teaser as always… Enjoy the full story at Two Georgian Gentlemen: A Tale and be sure to leave a comment! 

The man was of about my own age, perhaps a bit younger, and he was as pale and lovely as a carved marble statue by Michelangelo or one of the other great artists of antiquity. Dark curls spilled about his head and the trousers he wore fit like a second skin. But despite the beauty on show and the sudden ache it spawned in my chest, there was more that captured and held my attention.

His eyes were bright, even in the sparsely-lit parlour, and to me, they looked improbably viridian and platinum as his gaze darted about the room with palpable curiosity.

Something told me that he was not here in search of some cheap illicit encounter with one of the sad painted boys

It was a moment before I realised that my contemplation of him was being returned in equal measure. His quick-silver gaze moved over me with that same sense of curiosity and somehow I felt that he knew me better even than I knew myself.

Steven and Mark do it again!

Another masterpiece by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss!
Dracula portrayed by Claes Bang.
Although waiting for another Sherlock season can seem tedious at times, I think this new series does make up for the delay in Sherlock! I binge-watched the first two episodes before I took pause to write this, with a 123-year jump!
The setting was perfect…
What’s happened so far? I won’t give away to much… But I will say, I loved the victorian time period! I also loved seeing Jonathan Aris as Captain Sokolov, a part he played very well. He’s a captain ready to go down with his ship! (Oops… That Might have been a spoiler.)
Jonathan Aris as Captain Sokolov, in the second episode of Dracula.
I also love (Dolly Wells) as Sister Agatha! Dracula portrayed by Claes Bang has a suitable adversary Sister Agatha, and I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds!
Dolly Wells as Sister Agatha.
Now onto the next episode! Sherlock Fans… Keep Watching!
You can find Dracula on Netflix!
Again lots of love to Steven, Mark, Sue, and the entire crew at Hartswood Films! Thanks for bringing us so much joy!

HOURS LATER…

Dracula and Lucy listening to the undead.
The Dark Compass…
After a crazy day of running, I finally finished the last episode of Dracula, and like the previous episodes, I was very impressed! I’m trying to restrain myself when it comes to spoilers, but I will say there’s a hint of Sherlock in the last episode, especially when it comes to cell phones. Mark Gatiss also has an interesting role as Frank, the attorney of Dracula.
Times are changing, Frank with his client.

An Artistic New Year… 

My tardiness during the holidays is much like my tardiness of working and running too much. My New Year’s resolution is to try to get more things done online. For now, I’ll share some holiday cheer! -Rosemary [Sherlock Fans USA]
