    Summary

    This takes place during the months of Sherlock recovering from his gunshot wound (His Last Vow)
    Sherlock needs to recover physically and John needs to recover mentally.
    This scene shows a weak Sherlock and a supportive yet vulnerable John helping his friend after a fall. We also see an emotional John expressing himself to Sherlock.

    The show didn’t go that much into Sherlock’s recovery nor how John dealt with it, so this was on my mind to write. Should have wrote this years ago lol, enjoy!

    Summary

    A follow up to my earlier story 'Changes' - you don't have to have read that to really 'get' this but I would recommend it.

    After his talk with Bobby, John can barely wait to talk to Sam about what was said. He wakes him up early to have a talk, and finds his guilt getting even worse as he realises the things Sam wants most in the world are things that any other child in America would easily take for granted, especially when he finds that one of those things is just to find out what his own mother looks like.

    Summary

    "It's never the fall that kills you, it's the landing"

    Nothing to theorize here- Sherlock jumped, and all The Queen's horses might not be able to put him together again. Sherlock was gravely injured when he hit the pavement. John is by his side, but things are a bit not good for both of them.

    Summary

    The air in the room was filled with the lingering smell of sweat and sex. A soft body was lying beside him, an arm was placed possessively over his chest and a leg was wrapped around his hip, pressing their bodies even closer together.

    Summary

    “Mary can’t know that I don’t know how to waltz! She already thinks I’m a bumbling idiot, no need to prove it to her. You can teach me, and when she sees at the wedding that I know what I’m doing, she’ll be properly impressed.”

    “If she thinks a classic waltz will be easier for you, John, I hate to say that she already knows you’re a bumbling idiot.”

     

    John asks Sherlock to teach him how to waltz for his wedding. Sherlock obliges, but as is every other interaction between them, things get a little intense.

    Summary

    "Sherlock!" No reply.

    John screamed as another jolt of agony ripped through his body, sending his limbs into paroxysms of pain. Jesus fucking Christ.

    What had happened? The doctor inhaled, pressing his eyes together in an attempt to block out the yells and whimpers from the people surrounding him. There was just too much noise for him to concentrate properly. Should that have been a problem? John shook his head slightly. Sherlock would be here soon...surely.

    Summary

    It was difficult moving back to London by myself with a fucked shoulder and a psychosomatic limp. The PTSD was just the cherry on top. How I managed to keep my gun, I don't know. I was going to use it on that day, that day that I met him. And it wasn't even a matter of maybes. My mind was set because how could it get better? I had absolutely nothing to live for. Even my dad and sister didn't want anything to do with me. I didn't want anything to do with them. It's not as if I had anyone else to be with.

    But then I was taken into that bloody hospital and met that bloody man and I just knew, I knew what would happen next.

    Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. It's them. Always just them. It had been months since they had been together. Stolen kisses. Subtle glances. Trying to hide their relationship from John's abusive, homophobic father. It was never that easy though, was it? There was always going to be something pulling them apart, separating them, tearing their world apart. Why did it have to happen so soon?
