Sherlock Holmes Fanfiction: ‘Sub Rosa’

While I’m planning on reproducing the fanfiction and other material I found from Conan Doyle’s lifetime, I thought this one from 2005 was too good to pass up.

Set after the events at the Reichenbach Falls, “Sub Rosa” by “prof_pangaea” reproduces the correspondence between the Holmes brothers. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a story, with a beginning, middle and end where the incidents build on each other. But it’s an imaginative work and deserves a look. The opening missives are reproduced below.

Note: After the newspaper article, there should be 23 telegrams, with a long blank space near the end (I believe intentionally). LiveJournal acted wonky and did not load all the telegrams for me.
