Red Rose 3: Dark Roses

Dark Roses is a 132-page, letter-sized, two column zine.  All of the stories are slash, from the fandoms of Blakes 7, Eroica, X-Files, Swan lake and Desert Peach.  It includes one Sherlock Holmes story:

The Grey Light of Morning by Violet Nightingale (4 pages).
This is a first person, Watson-POV story of an established relationship but one in which declarations of love have not been made.  This commitment occurs within the story.  One thing I am not sure of is why this story is in a collection of 'darker' stories when it is devoted to very fulsome declarations of devotion.
