If you've found your way here it is likely because you think Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson are one of the hottest pairs in Western literature. My stories explore how their great and inevitable love came to fruition, and while I specialize in first-time fics, I do occasionally wander into the realm of an already-established relationship. I draw from Doyle's original stories, adventures concocted in my own imagination and Granada's unsurpassed television interpretations to spin tales of friendship, angst, longing and lust in the dark underworld of Victorian London. Ratings hover between hard R and scorching NC-17.
Below you will find the contents of my fics, and I will continue to update this page as new stories emerge. Browse the selections, come back often and comment when you are moved to do so. It is, after all, my wonderful readers, along with Jeremy Brett, David Burke and the many, many other talented fic writers out there, who keep me inspired.
