Fic: The Rose; The Prince; The Fox.
Genera: Gen, het, pre-slash. Post-Reichenbach, WIP (author updates regularly).
Summary: Sherlock Holmes finds his way back to the land of the living, if he was ever there to begin with.

Notes: Just, Irene Adler and Sherlock Holmes - THIS?! This is how I see them. The ways they tell each other truths, sharp, pointy truths because they can't hide from each other. The ways they are the FLING of a lifetime for one another, but they are not meant for each other, because Sherlock Holmes loves John Watson and London, and Irene Adler is the Woman who got away. Her life is her own, and she knows what is and isn’t hers.

And the whole thing could have been tragic, but instead it is lovely, understated and so beautifully handled.

GUH.

ETA: I WANT to READ ALL the Sherlock + Irene fics. JUST ALL OF IT! I never thought Sherlock would be a HET fandom for me. Don't get me wrong, I pretty much read ALL pairings (gen included) in this fandom, but my LOVE for Sherlock and Irene is up there with Sherlock and John - platonic or otherwise for both sets.
