From the Publisher

The stories in this delightful collection are based on the Ritchieverse, with the great detective, Sherlock Holmes, being portrayed by Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law as Dr John Watson, his sidekick. These stories were all written for a closed community on LJ and have been edited. They are not available online in edited form at all so buying this fanzine is the only place you'll get to read these great stories.

You won't regret it - there's plenty of love, romance, action, adventure, angst and h/c for everyone.

  • Standards of Order... and Disorder by Tinzelda (Summary: It rapidly became a favourite diversion to watch Watson carefully and enjoy those rare moments when his person was not perfectly clean and tidy, such as the night when a scuffle with a suspect left Watson with a dirty smudge on his left cheek.)
