This Sunday, September 24th, we'll be reading The Adventure of Black Peter.

A pig is stabbed, but what does it have to do with a Captain and a murder??

If you're new to our community, don't be shy! We read each of the 60 ACD canon stories in a little over a year. Some of the stories are split up given their length. You can have a look at our profile page for the schedule. Each week, the story's discussion begins on Sunday and remains open all week. You can join in with the discussion or write a short 60 word story based on the week's case or just read along with us. Or all three! And you can join us here or on our sister community on livejournal, sherlock60.livejournal.com

We look forward to seeing everyone this coming Sunday.

“Come, Watson, come.” Holmes’ voice was low, imperious. A warm hand on my shoulder. “The game is afoot.”

I chuckled, not opening my eyes. “Game, is it?” I rolled onto my stomach and parted my legs. “All right, darling, let’s play – but I shan’t be very active as I’m still half asl–”

No, you dolt, we have a case!”

Title: The Three Students: So Painful A Scandal
Author: gardnerhill                         
Word Count: 60
Rating:  G
Warning: None
Summary: The Victorian-school definition, that is.

 ***

My friend read the headmaster’s incident book. “Two lads setting a lower form on fire.”

Soames hand-waved. “Good wholesome character-building.”

“Four deaths due to hazing last year. An upper-form’s servant boy beaten nearly to death.” Holmes fixed Soames with a stare. “But a student looking at an exam paper –“

“Is a scandal from which St. Luke may never recover!”

This week we are reading The Three Garridebs.

I found this to be a much more interesting and satisfying case, tying up more of loose ends and cases with a spot of misadventure and friendship. For those of you who are following along with the suggested topic of the round, I think the theme of this case is hidden secrets and plots.

Author's note: I missed this one out in the last round

Fear

A partner, an associate, a fellow tenant...
Friend.
A Boswell writing journals, so the tales will never end.
A light conductor;
Sounding board;
A stalwart, sure support;
A sidekick who rejoiced in every case,
The Game,
The sport.
~0~
A gunshot in a cellar, and a new, intense, sharp fear.
For all that made him who he was could simply disappear.

Bunny Evans?”  

Holmes looked away from my glare. “A, er, reputation for…running like a rabbit when cornered.” 

I folded my arms. “You could have asked me to join you because you wanted my company, you know. You didn’t have to create a fictional hazard.” 

He nodded.

I pursed my lips. “I hear Simpson’s has a dangerous beef roast.”

We laughed.

“’Wicked to tell fibs,’ as if he ain’t told enough ‘isself,” Susan sniffed. “Reckon I’m as good at findin’ out things as he is.”

Steve Dixie stared into his beer. “I could outbox that doctor bodyguard of his.”

Tall thin white woman and large black man looked at each other. And grinned.

“Harrow Detective Agency?” suggested Dixie.

They shook hands.

This week we are reading The Adventure of the Three Gables. It carries the themes of tangled or foiled romances and retiring or settling down. I had suggested we could perhaps for this round use the themes for the canon cases as themes for the 60s. Thoughts?
