The Adventures of Dragos and Holmes: A Late Victorian Romantic Comedy with Serious Overtones
Sherlock Holmes and his dashing Romanian lover have a long, angsty, and passionate relationship which they can't seem to put behind them. Dragos has stalked off many times, tired of Holmes’s insistence upon sexual role playing in the bedroom, in which Dragos is expected to play the aggressor, most often a dashing pirate. Reluctantly agreeable at first, Dragos, who occasionally likes to cross-dress, ultimately doesn’t feel seen for who he really is. Pressure builds up and he sails off on another journey. But when his anger cools. he always returns to Holmes, usually bringing trouble with him.
In the midst of this passionate love affair, Dr. Watson often feels sidelined. He resents how the irresistible Dragos has inserted himself between the famous duo, turning it into an awkward triangle.
The ensemble cast of characters are rich and varied, and the scenes of sexual union include various combinations of gender. They are all consensual, except for one very brief scene, essential to the plot, of a rent-boy in London being assaulted by a pimp. The rest are reminiscent of the exuberant and explicit style of John Cleland’s Fanny Hill, a book that was prosecuted and banned from the time of its publication in 1748.
