* The book is basically one long torture-fest for Holmes, but ''doggone'' if it isn't also one long MomentOfAwesome for an already-awesome man.

* After much [[TearJerker tear-jerking]] and [[{{Woobie}} Woobieness]], Holmes gets to his feet and stands on his own for the first time in over a month. He then makes it across the room to the window. ChristmasMiracle ''and'' CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* ''[[TheDragon Moran]]'', of all people, gets his own CrowningMomentOfAwesome. All chapters previous, he has been subservient to and rather afraid of [[BigBad Professor Moriarty]], and, now, after [[EvenEvilHasStandards refusing to shoot Holmes on Christmas Eve]], he not only stands up to Moriarty (''and'' works out that the Irregulars are the men defending 221B) - he also delivers a ''brilliant'' comeback at the Professor's mockery.

* "Day 18: Long Time Falling" depicts the life of Professor Moriarty and the fight at the Reichenbach Falls with metaphors supplied by two different poems. At the end, Moriarty seems to regard Holmes's (simply called "the boy") victory as the detective's CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
** And the story also comes off as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for the author, as she made it a TearJerker for ''Moriarty''.

Added DiffLines:

* The face-off between Moriarty and [[spoiler:Mycroft]] at the end. There's ''worlds'' of subtext in their brevity.
* Holmes in his LetsGetDangerous mode in the chase scene. Doesn't get much more awesome than a convalescent Sherlock Holmes shooting at Colonel Moran in a cab chase!

* Every time Lestrade or Gregson give Patterson [[WhatTheHellHero what-for]]. The fact that Patterson is GoodIsNotNice Incarnate makes such moments deliciously satisfying.
