A/N: A fusion of Sherlock: The Abominable Bride and ACD crossed over with The Fall of the House of Usher, written for [ profile] piplover for the June 2016 Holmestice Exchange. (Although not essential to the story, if anyone would like to re-read Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher, it may be found at Project Gutenberg here. Several passages are quoted in the story.)
Summary: Just as one case has been concluded, a new client appears who hopes Sherlock Holmes can shed light on the mysterious deaths of the Ushers and the destruction of their home. While events unfold, Doctor Watson ponders the use of forenames.

Excerpt: Holmes had held up the dagger and grinned at me, pushing away the hair that had fallen into his eyes and smearing muck across his face in the process. The steel blade had glittered in the sunlight as he turned it to read the inscription around the ornate hilt.

“Best not to commit crimes with family heirlooms,” he had observed.

Excerpt: Sometimes I think I have notes for more stories that I may not tell, than for those that I may. With new names for the protagonists and a setting far from London, perhaps I shall publish the story that follows as complete fiction. It is not that, however.

Excerpt: I turned from my consideration of the street to where Holmes lounged beside me. “You’ll let me see to that?” I asked. The flush of his exertions had faded from his cheeks, leaving the cut across one all the more livid in contrast.

He opened his eyes partway. “How much did you wager?”
