billy would like to let all the fan club members know, he has started out on a new business venture, he has become a private consulting detective. A chance encounter with a Mr. Sherlock Holmes at one of the fan club meetings (a special meeting held at New Scotland Yard in London, hosted by Mr. Lastrade) has set billy down this path. After numerous conversations with Sherlock it was agreed that they should combine their limited resources and found this new venture. Sherlock admitted he used to be involved in a like venture a few years ago but had retired and was missing the action. For a few years now he had been looking to get back in the game and was just waiting for the right opportunity and partner to present themselves. His fascination and attraction to the bdFC and the man himself seemed to be the ticket, and felt very natural for him. It would be quite the adventure, Sherlock admitted to billy in one of their earlier meetings. The foundation would probably have come sooner but Sherlock had some urgent business to take care of in Switzerland. Upon returning he contacted billy and seemed more than ready to get things underway. They have not yet managed to establish or find premises for the new office, although they are looking at a very attractive office suite with connected apartments at a location downtown. Sherlock had shown billy his accommodations at Baker Street in London and was hoping for something similar. billy has been kind enough to provide a few pictures (seen below) of the time when he and Sherlock first visited the premises.
Their office address has not been established just yet and if anyone wishes to consult with the team on any matter best to do it via the fan club email or leave a voice mail message, for now. billy and Sherlock have guaranteed that they will respond immediately to any inquiries even without the establishment of proper or more permanent dwellings. Anyone wishing to engage b and S to take a look at their case is urged to contact either partner through the available channels. All inquiries will receive a hand written response signed by both billy and Sherlock. They vow to keep all dealings with clients in the strictest confidence and in most cases have no intention of charging any fees over and above reasonable amount to cover expenses. An acquaintance of Sherlock’s will look after financial matters (more on this individual later). They have made it clear that, even though they will initially review all cases presented to them, they will only investigate the most challenging and singularly unique cases that come their way.
billy also reports that Sherlock seems to get about accompanied by a nice companion, a John Watson, not sure what their relationship is yet, but he seems very friendly. It brings to mind another acquaintance of billy’s, the Doctor, he traveled around with some fine companions too. John seems to tag along wherever Sherlock goes; he also seems to be in the habit of taking copious notes all the time. He has a certain inquisitive and disciplined nature about him, rather like someone who may have served time with the police.
Update: A landlord, a strange looking man with a twisted lip, has informed billy and Sherlock that an apartment at 221D may be available, the current resident of the adjoining apartment at 221B has unfortunately renewed his lease.
