If to do so amuses you, guess the source - and then have fun speculating on the movie that MIGHT have been.

I felt a sudden hot sear as if a red-hot iron had been pressed to my thigh. There was a crash as ______'s pistol came down on the man's head. I had a vision of him sprawling upon the floor with blood running down his face while _________ rummaged him for weapons. Then my friend's wiry arms were round me, and he was leading me to a chair.

'You're not hurt, ________? For God's sake, say that you are not hurt!'

It was worth a wound - it was worth many wounds - to know the depth of loyalty and love which lay behind that cold mask. The clear, hard eyes were dimmed for a moment, and the firm lips were shaking. For the one and only time I caught a glimpse of a great heart as well as of a great brain. All my years of humble but single-minded service culminated in that moment of revelation.

'It's nothing, _________. It's a mere scratch.'

He had ripped up my trousers with his pocket-knife.

'You are right,' he cried with an immense sigh of relief. 'It is quite superficial.' His face set like flint as he glared at our prisoner, who was sitting up with a dazed face. 'By the Lord, it is as well for you. If you had killed _______, you would not have got out of this room alive. Now, sir, what have you to say for yourself?'

Please say it's Sherlock Holmes. And let me imagine the camp-tastic porn flick we have all been missing.

Sherlock Holmes stories ARE SO CAMPY.

Got it in one.

I particularly like "All my years of humble but single-minded service culminated in that moment" and also "The clear, hard eyes were dimmed for a moment, and the firm lips were shaking"

gay gay gay gay, camp camp camp camp...

Since reading this, I just cannot help imagining The Hound of the Baskervilles complete with your usual Surrender My Hymen in a Corset kind of romance novel sexy times.

It makes me laugh and giggle and snicker like a boyscout with a Victoria's Secret underwear catalogue.

I presume you're aware of the work of Famous Last Nerds?
