- Written for benedictcumberbatchruinedme, who bid on a fic from me for the Sherlock Committee Fic Auction for DashCon 2014. This story is based on her prompt.
- Please be warned that this story takes a fairly sympathetic view of the character of Mary Morstan. If that doesn’t work for you, I’d prefer you just not read rather than leave negative comments. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
- This story plays fast and loose with the science regarding memory loss resulting from traumatic brain injury (TBI). No offense is intended. If I get something wrong and you can’t overlook it for the sake of the plot, I’d prefer you email me privately to let me know (emmagrant01 at gmail).
- Huge thanks todrinkingcocoa-tpp for her thoughtful advice and commentary on earlier drafts of this chapter!
