The Solitary Cyclist: Smugness

Canon Story: The Solitary Cyclist
Title: Smugness (the serialisation of the Private Journal of Dr Watson)
Author:thesmallhobbit
Rating: G

It is of immense satisfaction to record that, whereas Holmes may have upbraided me for failing to make enquiries at the local public house, I at least managed to return to our rooms without injury, especially given his equally unprofitable day.  He was fortunate Woodley was on his own, or he might have been the one returning in a cart.

Next time Holmes rags Watson for failing a test, Watson can just smile and tape his own brow with a finger, right at the place Holmes got coshed.

Somehow I have the feeling he did.

Yes, but Holmes seemed to enjoy his altercation, did he? Watson's already had a severe injury (and will have one again) so he naturally values caution more.

Holmes was less enthusiastic when the aches started up the following day.

Hopefully Holmes will remember that he and the doctor are always at their strongest when working together. Always take a Watson as backup! ^_^

Exactly - you'll never know when you need one!
