Reccer's Comments: Awww,this fanvid... it's just so beautiful and moving! I love how it depicts the amazing chemistry between John Watson and Sherlock Holmes. It touches the heart with its seamless flow from present day to Victorian times (TAB). Our vidder's music selection--Mendelssohn’s Lieder Ohne Worte No. 7--makes this fanvid extra special since it's the classic violin piece Holmes loves to play for Watson in ACD canon. Seriously, it gives me goosebumps whenever I listen to it. Hope you like it. It's well worth taking the time to view! :D

Title: Autumn in Wimpole
Author: currently anonymous (will be revealed on Oct. 31st)
Pairing: Holmes/Watson
Length: 2,100 words
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: none
Verse: ACD Books
Author's summary: Watson struggles to uncover a mystery in a seaside village. Holmes is less than helpful.

Reccer's comments: The ACD Holmesfest is underway with so many delightful entries already and more to come! While this comm has an open recs post for the fest, it's also nice to have some more detailed recs. So let me start by calling your attention to this unique and lovely piece.

Here is a glimpse of Holmes and Watson, on the cusp of retirement, making their way through what Watson considers a lack-luster investigation amid the chilly ambience of a seaside resort town well past its summer prime. The author creates the details of the scene - the emptying streets, the dusty police station, the cramped local pub, the dark cliffside path - with an excellent eye for the most telling details.

The real marvel, though, is the keen and convincing take this story offers on Holmes and Watson's relationship, obviously established for many long years and deeply imbued with both affection and irritation. It is comfortable and prickly, teasing and sharp, boring on one level while obviously content and loving in its fundamentals. Here are two men who have made a life together for so long that they get on each other's nerves precisely because they know each other so well and are so completely synchronous in their routines.

Heart-warming with a tinge of melancholy, this fic left me feeling as if I had gotten a realistic and affectionate glimpse at this couple who, even ensconced in the mild aggravations of daily life, clearly can't live without each other.

The Game is Afoot!
