Green Grow the Rushes, O is a Sherlock fanfic set between Series 1 & 2 of BBC Sherlock and is an homage to Arthur Conan Doyle’s short story A Case of Identity.

John and Sarah travel to North Yorkshire to attend Sarah’s nephew’s christening, and discover Sarah’s family seem to think this family celebration is only the precursor to another one. It’s not only Sarah’s family who may be harbouring strange ideas; Sherlock has gone incommunicado in Oxford, a city with which he has had a love/hate relationship since he was sent down from the University in his second year.

This novella is a slightly edited version of one which was originally published 2012-05-25 in The Science of Deduction, a Sherlock fanzine published by Golden Pyramids Press edited by Jeanne R. Gold and Myfieldnotes. This version appears by agreement with them. Many thanks to Golden Pyramids and its editors for all their hard work on the original fanzine; it’s a beautiful production in which I was honoured to be included.

Warnings: The author chooses not to warn.

As every, thanks to caulkhead for betaing and to Marna for Canada-picking.
