My apologies, dear boy, but I thought it best not to burden you with this particular piece of news until you were sufficiently near at hand to make any use of it.
And so, at much longer last than I ever intended, we come to the end of the my first Sherlock Holmes fan fic (also my first completed and/or posted fan fic ANYWHERE if you want to get picky about it). Thank you to all the people who took the time to read my story, and thank you especially if you left a review. Particular thanks also to JB and HoVis for beta help and general encouragement. Not sure if/when I'll be writing fan fics again, so please don't hold your breath (as if), but if I do pick up my proverbial quill to play in other peoples' universes once more, you can be sure I'll be posting it on FanFiction dot net. Thanks again,
