Author's Note

Wilhelmina Sherlock Scarlett Holmes is a 25 year old genius, scientist, musician, and Ph.D who by chance meets the man who is destined to change her fate. When John Haymish Watson returns from Afghanistan as an injured veteran with PTSD, it's only fitting that he seeks out a flatmate. Despite the odds, he meets the girl who needs him most and both their worlds are sucked into a vortex, bringing them into the darkest depths of London.
And they are both ecstatic.
A misunderstood, suppressed, prodigy, and a broken soldier- who would have thought that the two of them could take by the city storm and turn the town upside down.
But then again, this is Sherlock Holmes and John Watson.
They were made for each other.
And they can do anything.

Awesome ~grins~ I really enjoyed this little author's note. At only sixteen years of age, I personally think you show lots of talent! And I could kick you cuz I don't think I have any, I just plunk away at words on my keyboard, rewriting them, over and over. I am anxious to read more. Keep up the good work!

I really like the concept of your story! I would totally read this book! I think as far as the relationship between the two characters goes, Watson should definitely be more serious- but not to a fault. I think some of his wise designs should be based on the horrors of war he has seen. There could be a part where he breaks down and sherlock comforts him- sealing the bond between the two and providing fodder for more books. Sherlock , Though a girl, looses a bit of her femininity as she gets entangled in the mystery. Watson could then treat her as a man through the story, but when the mystery ends he finds himself questioning his feelings for Sherlock. Just an idea, but it could bring a twist to the story. I can't wait to read the whole thing :) Happy writing.

Thank you (:
What you said, that's a great idea. Their relationship would be slightly confusi.. read more
So you have decided to put it on the internet after all, eh?
Russian roulette. The game I've been interested in recently. Seriously? You've been reading my mind or something? (;
