Home sweet home

((New post, because it is good for the universe. I would like to applaud all of the Cravat's fine members for not making a home/Holmes pun, nor yet a Holmesosexual pun. Not yet.))

Location: The Cravat
Time: Out of time

Sherlock Holmes and John Watson stumbled out of the portal, Watson still a little wide eyed at the prospect of time travel, Holmes retaining his famous composure. They stood in wait of the others, avoiding each other's eyes.

"And you are very welcome," Watson replied, smiling gently. "I don't think myself particularly strong. It is only the working in so many dangerous situations. I am obligated to learn to keep a calm head."

Gabe brightened and gave Jeannot a chaste kiss on the lips. "Hello, bel," he said, happily, and then looked over at Watson, who looked considerably less happy. "Is he alright?" he asked softly, taking his love's hand.

"I might indeed," Watson agreed, glancing up as the two other men approached them. He almost reached out to take Holmes's arm, but stopped, remembering what he had heard of Zachary.

"I did," Gabe replied, moving slightly closer to Jeannot, glad that he had not shied away. "He and Holmes are quite the celebrities in my time, remember." He glanced at Holmes here, signifying that he wouldn't disclose anything important about the nature of the celebrity.

"Yes, Watson, your somewhat over romantic chronicles of my cases seem to have been quite the success in Rosenburg's time." Holmes gave his first really relaxed, genuine smile in several days. "You are a famous author, my friend."

Gabe laughed. "Unlike me," he said, cheerily if self-deprecating. "He has the distinct advantage of being any good." He kissed Jeannot affectionately on the top of the head. "I've read a good amount of your stories," he remarked, turning to Watson. "When I was younger, anyway, and had slightly more time for books. I quite enjoyed them."

"Oh my - really?" This deluge of compliments was beginning to make Watson go quite red. "Thank you very much, Mr. Rosenburg. I should greatly enjoy reading something of yours someday, I'm sure you are not half so untalented as you pretend." He studiously did not look at Holmes, a feeling of angry resentment beginning to tighten into a knot in his stomach.

Holmes stiffened, aware that something was wrong, but attempted to ignore it. "I am glad you find you have ground in common with Watson, Rosenburg. You shall be together for quite some time."

"As long as it takes for me to do something about the problem of Moriarty, M. Bonnaire," Holmes explained. "And no, Watson, I shall not accept your help."

"I wasn't going to offer it," Watson said evenly, skewering Holmes with a hurt look.

Holmes sputtered for a moment, unsure, and then was silent.

"It could take him some time, bel," Gabe said, giving Holmes a puzzled look. Watson's reaction was entirely not what he had been expecting. Things between the two Victorians were even more stilted than before. What, he wondered, had changed? He decided to ponder it later, perhaps ask Jeannot's opinion, and gave him a smile before continuing. "But we'll have our own room, and there's a cot we can set up, as well. I even saw a set of paints in the closet, if you want them."

"Yes, you are a painter, are you not," Holmes said without a question mark. "I knew it from the moment I saw all the specks on your clothes." He gestured absently at the paint on Jeannot's coat.. "Never quite get it out, do you? Turpentine is best for oil," Holmes volunteered, not saying how he knew this.

Watson remained silent, in uncomfortable anticipation of Holmes's certain interrogation as to why he was so taciturn, but it did not come.
