Author's summary: It’s purely association, but when Ms. Hudson thinks of Joan Watson, the first thing that comes to mind is cold.

Reccer's comments:
There isn't much written for this pairing yet, and what there is is almost all from Joan's POV, so it's really wonderful to see fiercynn tackle Ms. Hudson's perspective. They handle her beautifully, taking the few canonical details we've been given and fleshing them out into something lovely and well-rounded. The fic touches just lightly on so many bits of character development - the peculiar position a housekeeper is in, privy to the private life of the house while not being a part of it; the complicated relationship Ms. Hudson might have with her first name; her checkered relationship history as a kept woman and muse - and all of that adds up to some really compelling reasons for Ms. Hudson to fall for Joan. There's a lot packed into this short fic, and it definitely rewards multiple readings.
