Character(s): Holmes, Watson, Lestrade
Summary: TLC for Watson, who is in no condition to appreciate it.
Warnings: Major character death (highlight to read; it's a bit spoilery), angst
Author's Notes: ACD book-verse. Two entries for Watson's Woes July writing prompts; fill for July 14 prompt: "TLC, whatever form (and rating) that means to you.  Meaning TLC for Watson, not given by." I'm afraid that, although Watson is receiving TLC, there is not so much comfort in this story. (However, the request for comfort was under the prompt, not part of it, so I'm disregarding that portion.)
