I found this on the Jesus College Cambridge website:

The eighteenth century also saw the residence of the two most famous literary figures to have passed through the college: Laurence Sterne (1733) and Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1791)...Samuel Taylor Coleridge was awarded a Rustat scholarship, which was offered to the sons of deceased clergymen; but he too soon found himself in debt, and took refuge in the opium which was to wreck his life...Then, on an impulse, he left the college in December 1793 to join the 15th Regiment of Light Dragoons, under the name of Silas Tomkyn Comberbache


This definitely needs some kind of fic - I have some plans, but does anyone else want to pile into Coleridge/Sherlock crossovers?
