Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes & John Watson
Rating: Teen

Word Count: approx. 21,000
Summary: Holmes wants to see the last European pterodactyl safely home. Watson just wants to see Holmes happy again.

Author Notes: Comprehensive spoilers for the final episode of New Russian Holmes; light spoilers for Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World (i.e., the basic premise and the climatic moment -- which is a nice bit of drama, but doesn't spoil much of anything about the plot). The Lost World is available on gutenberg.org, but this story requires no specific knowledge of the novel.

Much thanks to [personal profile] language_escapes and [personal profile] grrlpup for beta, and to [personal profile] smallhobbit for Britpick!

nostos (pl. nostoi)
A homecoming.

Title: Something Good (Will Come From That)
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] gardnerhill
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sanguinity
Characters/Pairings: Holmes & Watson; Holmes/Watson
Rating: General
Summary: One hundred years of moving pictures about Holmes and Watson.
Author Notes:

My deepest thanks to my collaborator and source-monkey, [livejournal.com profile] k_e_p, without whom this would have required twice the work and been half as good. Major thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] grrlpup, who watched many hours of source and many drafts of the vid, and to [livejournal.com profile] ghost_lingering, who provided excellent beta and technical advice.

If you spot an error in the source list, please say so. I am especially uncertain that I have credited the correct actors for Jighangsha (1951). If there’s anyone out there who can double-check against the in-film credits (which are in Bengali script), that would be a great boon, thank you.

[livejournal.com profile] gardnerhill, I trust balance has been maintained in the Force. ;-)

Lyrics

I saw you strolling by your solitary
Am I nosy? Very very!
I’d like to bet a juicy huckleberry
What you’re after is a boy
We’re both in luck for introductions are not necessary…

Mm-mm-mm, would you like to take a walk?
Mm-mm-mm, do you think it’s gonna rain?
Mm-mm-mm, how about a sarsparilla?
Gee, the moon is yellow!
Something good will come from that.

Mm-mm-mm, have you heard the latest song?
Mm-mm-mm, it’s a very pretty strain.
Mm-mm-mm, don’t you feel a little thrilly?
Gee, it’s getting chilly!
Something good will come from that!

When you’re strolling through the where-sis
You need a who-sis to lean upon
When you have no who-sis
To hug and what-sis
Dog-gone!

Mm-mm-mm, would you like to take a walk?
Mm-mm-mm, do you think it’s gonna rain?
Mm-mm-mm, aren’t you tired of the talkies?
I prefer the walkies
Something good will come from that.

Walking and talking with a girl like you
Is about the sweetest thing any boy can do
I’d rather be romancing than walking, dear
I’d rather be dancing… Oh, let’s dance here.

Doot-doo-doo, have you heard the song of spring?
Doot-doo-doo, you can hear it everywhere.
Doot-doo-doo, when you see the little roses
Turning up their noses
Something good will come from that.

Mm-mm-mm, when you see a butterfly
Mm-mm-mm, nodding to a buttercup
Mm-mm-mm, when you hear a little cricket
Chirping in the thicket
Something good will come from that.

Oh, say, I'd love to be your who-sis
We could go where-sis most every night
We could love and what-sis
You’d find your who-sis just right.

Doot-doo-doot-doo-doo, take a walk in lover’s lane
Doot-doo-doot-doo-doo, then you’ll hear that song of spring
Doot-doo-doot-doo-doo, when you hear those lovers sighing
Then there’s no denying
Something good will come from that!
...and that!
...and that!
