Have you written up your account of the case?
Modified to put it down as one of my rare failures, of course?
John has agreed to pretend the case was a failure when Sherlock's indeed solved it. A case about an Abominable Bride who turned out to be living murderers, using the name of a dead woman, to shoot the men in their life whom have wronged them. But that wasn't the only case he'd solved. The matter of Moriarty suddenly coming back from the dead. The matter of the Watson's own unhappy marriage. And yet, Mary wasn't a disguised bride using the name of a dead woman to veil her plans for murder- oh wait.
