Watson's Woe's JWP 2015 Master Post

These are the 32 Sherlock Holmes stories I wrote this month, as part of the watsons_woes July Writing Prompts challenge. I managed to write and post a fic every day, and either met or was just a few minutes past each 24-hour deadline. I've bolded my own personal favorites!

Comments and kudos are always welcome, and I would especially appreciate con-crit, since these didn't have the benefit of a beta. Or respond to this post, and we can chat about your experience of this year's JWP challenge.
