4 Angel in the Centerfold A few years ago, we did a Virtual Season 4 for Hardcastle and McCormick, and some of our best writers contributed. A few were never posted here, and I'm proud to present one from our fandom's best writer - L.M. Lewis. An internet search should turn up our 4th season if you haven't read those "episodes" yet. Enjoy!

7McCormick and Hardcastle As most of you know, I've been kicking this idea around for many months, but it has suddenly seemed imperative to post it somewhere in public view. It's just a draft; sorry about that. Maybe someday I'll flesh it out into a whole story, but I'm not making any promises!

31 Event Horizon » Sherlock Holmes's love for John Watson has never been in doubt, but his understanding of what friendship means to John is less certain. When Sherlock tries to protect John and in the process abandons everything John loves about him, it nearly destroys their relationship-but it also gives John the chance to show Sherlock just how this friendship thing is done.

35 Medium Dark » Sherlock Holmes doesn't hold with the supernatural, so why does he take a case brought to him by a client who does? As usual, he sees past the smoke and mirrors to detect deceit, murder, and the twisted motive behind both-but the one thing he doesn't expect is the threat to John's life.

28The Devil's Heart A man like Sherlock Holmes is considered a hero by some and a right bastard by others. But he also proves the adage that one can tell at least as much about a man from his detractors as one can from his friends. Here, Sherlock solves two crimes and one mystery, and inadvertently reveals a little about his enemies, a little about his friends, and quite a bit about himself.
