[Added 25/11/2011; Drama; 2500-6000; Neil Gaiman – Study in Emerald]

The Restorer: Vol 2 No 13 by Smilebackwards

'The Church of the Ancient had a sign out front where I have often seen them place passages from the Deep Wonders. Exult! Salvation is risen from the dark and the Depths, and the like. It said, then, Why?' Watson recounts his side of the story. Perfect pastiche, with a few telling details
