A/N: I didn't include any Sherrinford fics in my 5 + 5 = 1 poll. This fic is for the people on that thread who said they wanted to see more of him.

Yeah, okay. Technically two of these aren't "Watson-centric", but they were all written for JWP so I figure they count. If there's something else you desperate want to see continued that isn't on the list, please leave it in the comments. Thanks!

Rating: G
Length: 404
Universe: BBC
Summary: A birthday, a ghost, and a piano.
Date: 2 August 2015
AP4: Another Year Older and Surrounded By Idiots: Benedict Cumberbatch is not the only July birthday among Holmes actors – Robert Stephens (Private Life of Sherlock Holmes), Vasily Livanov (Russian Sherlock Holmes films), and William Gillette (the first stage Sherlock Holmes) share the month with him. Incorporate a birthday observance in some way.
A/N: If you've not met the ghost of Sherrinford Holmes yet, I don't know what to tell you. Maybe check out my JWP 2014 series A Weekend in the Country. That should have links back to his first story. Maybe.

A/N: Prequel to 2014's JWP series Present Imperfect Tense. That makes it a cross-over with Torchwood/Doctor Who.
