sunday reading post!  
Oh goodness it's starting to get really hot. Have you guys been enjoying your little slice of summer so far?

This week's story is:
The Empty House

(tearful, "oh my god you're not dead" sex ensues)

I don't have the book right now, but I've watched the Granada episode and I love it! And partly because of the scenes after Watson fainted. I haven't read the whole story so I can't point out my favourite quotes right now. I'll come back later, maybe, with some quotes.

Summer? You bastard. I'm cold.

OTOH, I love EMPT to bits because YAY Holmes is back and still a dick.

Also, he brought Watson presents, and one of them was a copy of Catullus. Presumably to spice up their sex life ('cause yeah. Catullus = BIG GAY).

Additionally, I think this is a rare example of a really good bit of story-telling by ACD. Because he makes you wait for Holmes to come back by telling you one of the exciting murder stories he's (kinda) good at. You'd almost forget that Holmes was dead.


“You’ll come with me to-night?”
“When you like and where you like.”

LOLOLOL. Nothing I could say could make that better.

Also: Cavendish Square! There's a set-up if ever I saw one (she realises much belatedly).

Top 5 canon stories, fuck yeah!

And I just need to see Jude Law fainting when Downey!Holmes comes back to life and then my own life will be complete.
