    Summary

    That is almost what he fears the most.
    Not being able to handle being left alone, without Sherlock, knowing that he could never be like this again, spending a Sunday evening lying naked, post sex, on their living room carpet, just the two of them, still slightly breathless after their activities, sleep lurking just around the corner and the alluring temptation of slipping down under the covers of their shared bed that stands in what used to be Sherlock’s bedroom but now is theirs and soon will be no ones.
    John can’t imagine that he will ever be able to sleep in there again after Sherlock is gone.

    Summary

    Sherlock is terminally ill. Admitting himself into hospital, to allow his family time off from caring for him, he meets one doctor who doesn't treat him as though he is fragile, and doesn't look at him with pity.

    Summary

    Sherlock and John are on the case, chasing a madman. They both knew something would go wrong eventually but not this soon. Not after all that has happened, not when they were just starting to be a pair again. John just got him back, he still hasn't asked about why he left the wedding. He can't listen to a waltz the same way again because of it.
    Yeah I suck at summaries.

    Summary

    The last thing he heard was a shout. Panic rushed through John’s system as he clambered to his feet, swaying a little as he did so. There was a new found panic in his system now, the need to check if Sherlock was okay. He surveyed his surroundings with half opened eyes, still dizzy from the impact, unable to focus.

    John’s blood ran cold and a shiver ran down his spine as he looked forward in horror.

    The coppery, iron smell of blood was strong.

    Summary

    "She thought that if you put yourself in harm's way, I would rescue you or something. But I didn't, not until she told me too. That's how this works, that's what you're missing."

    In an alternate ending where Sherlock had not changed the morphine with saline, and John still remained furious.

    Summary

    Sherlock dies in the ambulance journey after he gets shot. John Watson vows to seek revenge on whoever killed his beautiful genius. In order to piece the puzzle together he starts to reenact his and Sherlock's old cases from his blog. This leads him to all the way back to Baskerville and he makes a discovery that makes his entire world tilt another 360 degrees.

    He hears the conversation he had with Stapleton resonate inside his mind, taunting him as he catches sight of sharp cheekbones and two grey, gimlet eyes that pierce his soul.

    -

    Stapleton: Listen, if you can imagine it, someone is probably doing it somewhere. Of course they are.

    John: Cloning?

    Stapleton: Yes, of course. Dolly the Sheep, remember?

    John: Human cloning?

    Stapleton: Why not?

    Summary

    It had been an entire year since John had discovered Sherlock Holmes in bed with another man. The betrayal had stung John to the very core: he thought they were strong, that they were in love. After everything they had been through, Sherlock went and did this, hurt John in the worst way possible. John had always been insecure about their relationship, and honestly, who wouldn’t be when they were dating Sherlock? The man was beautiful and brilliant and one of the most amazing, wonderful, electric, fantastic people John has ever met. And John was just… Well, ordinary.

    And Sherlock had gone and proved it all true when he had cast John to the side, had gotten bored of him and found someone else.

    Summary

    Because today is a special day. And there are some things that you still don't know yet.

    There are still things I haven't had the chance, nor the resolve, to tell you.

     

    -------------------------

    Inspired by Alone on the Water, this is a letter Sherlock writes to John before his death.

    Just a short sherlockian-take on Jame's speech in Third Star.
