Author has written 35 stories for Sherlock.

I am an English and literature tutor. I also write curriculum for literature, writing, and Bible courses. I write a blog as well, chiefly for educators. If you are interested, PM me and I'll give you the information privately.

All of my stories are AU Mary Morstan tales. Having begun to write these stories before Series Three came out, I based my Mary entirely on the original books. I have always loved this most accommodating of all fictional characters. According to ACD's canon, she's smart; she's resourceful; she's mostly imperturbable. She encouraged Watson in his exploits with Holmes. And when her presence began to make story flow difficult, she obligingly passed away. I hope I've captured a bit of her spirit in my Mary-centric tales.

I have not written these stories in chronological order. If anyone is interested in reading them in the order in which they happened, here is a semi-chronological list:

Mary

Oddly Detached

All I Want for Christmas

One to Spare

Dancing Round the Subject

Show Me

Red-Handed

Red-Handed Recriminations

Family Dynamics Part One

When Mary Changed Her Mind

A Dream of Rain

First Thing in the Morning

Where There's Smoke

Suture Self

John and Mary Go Out to Dinner

After Dinner Aftermath

John and Mary Have a Tiff

His Spare Watson

An Attempt at Ordinary

The Watsons' Revenge

Can't Manage Ordinary

Boscombe Pond

The Misadventure of the Deceptive Detective

Tis the Season

Dress Rehearsal

The Color of Crime

Mary and Molly and the Misandrist's Mail

Invictus

Family Dynamics Part Two

Captain of His Soul

Chance Meetings

Making Friends and Forming Alliances, To Hold His Hand, and To Hold Her Heart are groups of related one-shots that intersperse the other stories. Read the chapter headings to find out where these fit in the chronology.

A Watson When You Need One would take place sometime after Boscombe Pond, if it had actually happened. Which it didn't.

Medium Dark by owlcroft reviews
Sherlock Holmes doesn't hold with the supernatural, so why does he take a case brought to him by a client who does? As usual, he sees past the smoke and mirrors to detect deceit, murder, and the twisted motive behind both-but the one thing he doesn't expect is the threat to John's life.

The Best Man: Losing John Watson by Emma Lynch reviews
Set six months after Fly on the Wall . Sherlock hasn't always understood the value of friends and family, considering himself an automaton, a solver of puzzles, a brain without a heart. Certainly, he is blessed, but someone out there wants to show him just how much love and friendship should matter, and the price you might pay if you lose those who are close. Where is John Watson?

The Devil's Heart by owlcroft reviews
A man like Sherlock Holmes is considered a hero by some and a right bastard by others. But he also proves the adage that one can tell at least as much about a man from his detractors as one can from his friends. Here, Sherlock solves two crimes and one mystery, and inadvertently reveals a little about his enemies, a little about his friends, and quite a bit about himself.

So he'd asked Molly to join him for coffee. Spoilers up to the end of Season 3.

This is a follow-on to "Twisting in the Wind," sort of. It's more a character study/introspective on Sherlock and women, and on Sherlock and Mycroft. Yes, that does make sense. It's also what pushes it to a slightly wary T, mainly for mild and gentle consideration of subject material that some people find taboo.
