Challenge TypePersonal Challenge
Category Literature > Crime > Sherlock Holmes
DescriptionWhen I was younger and read Sherlock Holmes, I used to completely sympathize with Watson. It always felt like the clues were nowhere near as obvious as Holmes made them out to be, and the logic was hardly as straight forward as Holmes insisted. Just once, I wanted to see Holmes mess up.

This is where you come in.

Please write a story in which Holmes is faced with an impossible case. In fact, Holmes can't begin to fathom how such a horrible case occurred. However, someone else in that time period could. That person is a member of the Council of Watchers, and can easily solve the crime because they know of the demon species that's the culprit. The character can be anyone from the Watcher's Council- maybe even an entry test to see whether Holmes could become a watcher- but I'll give extra brownie points for anyone who can tie in Giles' grandmother.
