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.

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!

A Gentleman’s Gratitude

Sherlock considers Watson’s feelings while sending his accusing brother some warmth! Enjoy this next segment by mydogwatson! [Fielets you may have missed: Two Gentlemen Sharing & A Game For Gentlemen] Art by Fayeren, another talented fan!

A teaser as always…

My over-bearing brother occasionally accuses me of taking John Watson for granted.

I could argue the point but probably will not trouble myself to do so. On one occasion when Mycroft expressed that particular opinion, Watson overheard his words and replied mildly, “If a man cannot take his most intimate friend for granted sometimes, then perhaps their bond is not as strong as it should be.”
