In The Silence Between

It’s the tale of Sherlock’s life, beautifully told, while including his violin! My friend mydogwatson does it once again, she never disappoints!

As always we have a teaser…

John Watson was also a man who had dreadful nightmares. 

The first few times it happened, Sherlock was at a total loss as to what he should do. A proud man like John Watson would hardly want to be seen in such a situation. But at the same time, it did not seem right to just ignore the sounds coming from the upstairs bedroom. The tortured moans. The whimpers. The banging of a fist against the wall.

It had taken an embarrassingly long time for Sherlock to have an idea about how to help, although once he did, it seemed painfully obvious. He picked up his violin and briefly thought about what to play. Something Grandmama had once said came back to him.

“The most comforting and peaceful music ever composed, my lovely boy, isVenus The Bringer of Peace. Its exquisite tranquillity has the power to soothe my soul.”

Sherlock was not concerned at all by the matter of souls, but if there was anyone who deserved exquisite tranquillity, it was John Watson. So on nightmare nights, it was always the Holst that he played.

Sometimes when he played, it would just go quiet upstairs and he assumed that John had fallen back to sleep. Other nights John would get out of bed and pad barefooted into the sitting room, curl up in his chair and just listen to the music.

They never talked about it.

Sherlock liked to think that they didn’t need words. That the music was enough.

Enjoy the full story In The Silence Between and please share your thoughts on this amazing story, afterward!

Hello

Hi everyone.  My name is Rhonna Di and I am one of the members Rosemary mentioned yesterday going to contribute to this blog.

I suppose I should introduce myself properly.

0214192003

I got involved in this fandom right before Series Three was aired. I think I had to wait four months.  My daughter called me one night and asked if I had heard of this TV series called “Sherlock.” Me, being the uninformed, out-of-the-loop one, told her no I hadn’t. This was the first time I had heard anyone say Benedict’s name out loud. She then asked if I remembered the actor who played Bilbo.  Well, I wasn’t that uninformed. “Of course I remember Bilbo,” was my response, although; I had no clue of his name either.  “Well he and the guy who voices Smaug are in this series called Sherlock. It’s really good and I think you would love it.”

Little did we know she would create a monster.

I first met Rosemary at the Sherlocked convention in Los Angeles in 2017. I got a picture taken with her when she was cosplaying as Sherlock in his bearskin hat. We didn’t properly meet until the one in 2018. Her ‘”Mrs. Hudson’s Pool Party” was the best party of the weekend.  Then, I was fortunate enough to be able to go to London a few weeks ago and spend time with Rose and many of the people I became friends with at Sherlocked. That week was one of the best of my life.

On a personal note, I live in the mountains of Arizona and have four children. Three are grown and my baby is ten.
