Welcome to With Love, S.H., home of Decoding the Subtext, a homoerotic reading of the Sherlock Holmes Canon. Here you will also find my collection of Sherlock Holmes related reviews.

The following warnings apply:

1) I play The Game. I rather enjoy “knowing” Holmes and Watson were historical characters, rather than literary ones.

2) Decoding the Subtext is considered Sherlockian scholarship, not academic scholarship, and as such the opinions contained within are biased by my personal interpretation of the Sherlock Holmes Canon – i.e. that Holmes and Watson were very much in love (with each other) and that their affection for one another very likely manifested in the form of a physical and/or romantic relationship.

3) Decoding the Subtext should be cited as a fanwork.
