The party in Mrs. Hudson’s quarters was now in full swing.

Up in 221B, Watson smiled weakly at Holmes.

“What is it they’re celebrating?”

“I think...” said Holmes, “Mrs. Hudson said it was a harvest supper.”

“In London?”

There was a sudden cheer and Holmes shrugged. “Seems to have been a very good year for gin at least.”

Down below the piano started up, as Mrs. Hudson began to lead her guests in yet another popular ditty.

Holmes blanched somewhat. “Dear God. How many risqué songs does the woman know?”

“I suppose… we could… always go down and complain..?”

Watson’s voice trailed away.

Amidst the silence, the laughter of twenty-three landladies floated up the stairs, and Holmes and Watson exchanged a look.

“Yes, well,” said Watson. “Perhaps not.”

“Mrs. Hudson!”

“What..?” She opened her eyes to find her maid at her bedside.

“There’s creaking upstairs!” whispered Bessie urgently. “And Mr. Holmes and the Doctor are still away, aren’t they?”

“Heavens—!”

Mrs. Hudson sat up and listened, her body tense.

Then she sighed.

“Don’t worry, dear. There’s nobody upstairs. It’s just the house relaxing.”

She looked up at the ceiling and addressed the upper apartments.

“Better make the most of it! They’ll be back tomorrow.”

There was a sudden shriek in the pipes.

Bessie giggled, and Mrs. Hudson rolled her eyes.

“It has to be said, my thoughts exactly.”

“What’s that you’re reading, Bessie?” asked Mrs. Hudson.

Her housemaid looked up from her book, and lifted it to show the cover.

“It’s all about bees! Mr. Holmes lent it to me. He says I can borrow any of his books, as long as I ask him first.”

Mrs. Hudson made a mental note to check that ‘any’ didn’t mean any.

“How kind of him,” she said out loud.

She smiled a little.

“You know, I’ve sometimes thought how nice it would be to live in a hive. I’d be the queen, of course. And you’d be my little worker bee, bringing me royal jelly. And Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson being mere males would have to be content with being drones!”

Mrs. Hudson gazed happily off into the distance imagining it all.

Bessie furrowed her brow. “But Mrs. Hudson—wouldn’t that mean you had to have babies with Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson?”

Mrs. Hudson’s expression became somewhat fixed.

A moment passed and then she turned back to Bessie.

“Perhaps, dear,” she said, “there’s a lot to be said for the current arrangement, after all.”

Author’s Notes: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] watsons_woes June 2016 prompt: Anticipation.


Holmes and Watson were sitting huddled together.

Watson shifted awkwardly. “How much longer to wait?”

“Not too long now.”

Holmes glanced back at the few scattered people seated behind them.

“Is she there?” whispered Watson.

“Not yet.” Holmes turned round again.

Watson drummed his fingers on his knee.

“Perhaps,” he said abruptly, “I should have brought my gun.”

Holmes looked at him. “I do feel in this situation a gun might be an overreaction.”

“I simply meant I might feel a little more confident with it!”

People were starting to look. Holmes patted Watson’s arm and leant closer. “You do not need the gun.”

There was a faint noise, and Holmes turned to see Lestrade and Gregson taking their places behind.

Holmes gave them a brief smile. “Thank you for coming, gentlemen. There weren’t many others we could ask.”

Lestrade raised an eyebrow at Watson, who was now staring fixedly ahead.

“Is the Doctor all right?”

“He’s fine,” said Holmes. “The waiting is beginning to tell and— Ah!”

Ahead of them, a man in vestments entered.

The organ began to play, while behind them another door opened.

Holmes glanced round.

And gave a reassuring smile to the newly arrived Miss Mary Morstan.

Holmes turned back to Watson.

“Do try and pull yourself together, old fellow,” he whispered. “Here comes your bride.”

“It’s terribly fascinating. The benefit to health, to a woman’s bearing...”

“How interesting. I’m just going to scrub that green… stuff… off the table top.”

“And so, I’ve bought you this set of dumb-bells!”

“I suppose he’ll be expecting me to wash his damn petticoats again too— I beg your pardon?”

“Yes! I thought you might need some more exercise!"



“Watson… Where did you get that big lump on your head?”

Dr. Watson was staring moodily at his eggs.

Watson looked up. “Just got out of bed the wrong side today.”

“Oh, I see.”

Mrs. Hudson frowned.

“You know, I’ve never understood that saying.”

Watson shrugged. “Well, if I’d got out the other side, I’d have avoided the chamber pot.”

Rating: PG
Warnings/Content: Canon-typical violence
Author’s Notes: "My collection of M's is a fine one," said he. "Moriarty himself is enough to make any letter illustrious, and here is Morgan the poisoner, and Merridew of abominable memory, and Mathews, who knocked out my left canine in the waiting-room at Charing Cross…” Written for the March 2016 Prompt: Small but perfectly formed. Also on AO3.


“Been waiting long, Mr. Holmes..?”

Holmes lowered his newspaper and stared with distaste at the man who had just joined him in the waiting room of Charing Cross station.

“Mathews.”

Holmes returned his gaze to his paper.

“I’m afraid I don’t have time to waste on you at the moment. I have a train to catch and a most interesting case to investigate. Our… appointment… will have to wait for another time.”

Holmes turned the page and Mathews stepped nearer.

“But that’s not good enough, Mr. Holmes. You wanted to see me…”

Mathews leaned forward.

“Well, then. Here I am.”

There was a pause.

Then Holmes threw the paper aside and leapt to his feet, just as Mathews reached inside his coat pocket.

A fist connected smartly with Mathews’ jaw. Mathews staggered but rallied.

He grabbed Holmes round the throat, there was a flash of metal in Holmes’s mouth and—

“Aaaargh!”

Mathews smiled in satisfaction. “There. All done.”

Holmes clutched at his face. “You bloody dentists!”

“Well, it had to be done! It was cracked! Rotten!”

Mathews looked down at the tooth clutched in his hand.

Which was whole.

Perfect.

He looked up at Holmes.

“Er… I think you might need another appointment.”

Mathews smiled weakly.

“I’ve removed your left upper canine. It should have been the one on the bottom.”
