Author’s Summary: Sarah flies home from a conference in the US and brings an unexpected gift home for her boyfriend - or, more precisely, his flatmate. Game on!

Why This Must Be Read: Let me count the ways I love this fic. 1. Strong female characters? Check. 2. Brilliant meta about mystery writers and their fanbase? Double check. 3. Extremely well-written? Check, check, check! I’ll admit the Sarah/John romance takes a bit of a backseat to the plot, but the glimpses we get are lovely. Plus the interactions between Sarah and Sherlock are almost downright friendly!
