Title: Inspire
Theme: Watson's Woes July Writing Prompts 2016
Prompt: #08 The Wonder of the Age: For Victorian Holmes & Watson it was things like telephones and motorcars; for current Sherlocks and John/Joan it’s more likely to be nanotechnology and/or iPhones; 22nd Century Holmes deals with androids and casual Moon travel. (For Sherlock Hound or Basil of Baker Street it’s probably flea powder.) Use or allude to such a modern miracle of the age for whatever age you choose.

"I am curious as to when men will fly to the moon."

Watson blinks and stares at Holmes, who stands at the window looking to the sky.
After sharing a flat for several weeks now Watson was already well accustomed to the sometimes very obscure conversation topics his flatmate choose.
He learned to take those in stride, but sometimes he is only able to give one answer.

"Huh?"
Holmes snorts, the closest he ever gets to a chuckle and turns to look at Watson. "I said I am curious as to when men will fly to the moon."

"Why ever should they want to to that?" Watson asks and Holmes shrugs, returning to his chair in front of the fire.
"Why should they not want to? Humans are capable of many things - possible and impossible alike.

So why should not come the day when men will fly and touch the sky?"

"Sounds romantic," Watson teases, a slight grin tugging at his lips and he can see a smiliar motion tugs at Holmes' lips.
"No, Watson, it sounds inspiring."

A pleasant scene, and a fine use of the prompt. And Holmes very ic.
