    Summary

    Doctor John Watson has a secret… He is a well-known author of detectives’ stories. After the war, it was his way of coping with his relentless nightmares. Months and years passed, the memory of his life as a soldier fading away, erased by the tranquillity of a life separated between his job at the surgery and evening at his computer.

    Away from any action, away from any strong emotion. Until one day, his world collides with a dead man.

    Summary

    "Perhaps this was to be my life lesson, the one I must learn many times without fully mastering. I had been foolishly confident of my own abilities, while grossly underestimating Moriarty’s. My fall at Reichenbach had not been the winning move of a chess match. It had been a desperate gamble, one that I lost."

    Still in exile, Holmes arrives in Paris and learns that Watson has been convicted of gross indecency and will serve two years in prison. Learning that Mycroft has died, he realises that he cannot yet return, but must try to contact Watson. While he waits, he gathers intelligence on Moran's operations in Europe.

    This is part of a Victorian AU. Each part can be read separately, but the overall story arc will make more sense of read in order.

    Summary

    The events preceding the Great Hiatus and later the heartfelt reunion with Sherlock Holmes were described by Dr. Watson in his published accounts. However, as the Doctor himself admitted, for the sake of propriety, some facts had to be suppressed.

    Summary

    "Your life is not your own."

    "Your life is not yours to choose."

    Two alternate people from a multitude of different worlds, and yet the same.

    On January 29, 2016, Sherlock Holmes tries to commit suicide by jumping into the Thames before being saved by a young woman he met by chance. The wounds by John Watson in the morgue only remind the Sherlock of his failed self, and of the deep deception that succeeded in protecting his true self from the other people: a self-medicating addict, prone to depression, suicidal thoughts, and low self-esteem. He knows that he has always been a fuck up.

    "I know what's like to be treated like that."

    Since the morgue, his body remembers even if his mind wants to forget and blame it on himself. For some reason, Sherlock Holmes is afraid of John Watson, even as he still desperately loves him. And John Watson doesn't understand what he did wrong.

    It seems that the only person who understands is the woman who is trying to save him.

    But do they all, all these actors in this tragedy, want to endure the journey in order to live again?

    Summary

    During Sherlock's two years away, he endured pain, and loneliness, and severe trauma. But he was also lucky enough to encounter people--only a few, and only for a time--who made things easier, made it bearable.

    Pasha is one of those people. He is also, occasionally, a major pain in the arse. It's the largest part of his charm.

    Summary

    My personal take on international magic, as well as what will happen if the Nations themselves were involved in the events of Harry Potter - things take a less deadly and much more hilarious turn. This also covers some of the magical misadventures of the Nations. Warning: OCs, Translations, Ships, BL, pranks, hilarity, death, mild angst, etc. Originally posted on Fanfiction.Net, now also posted here.

    Summary

    A collection of ficlets originally posted on Tumblr for the Fictober18 challenge. Each chapter follows a different prompt, used here as the chapter's title.
    I know the tags are a big mix; fear not, each ficlet will have relevant tags in the initial notes.
    Most chapters are rated Gen; the rating Teen and Up is for a few chapters that are also tagged Implied Sexual Content, and it's really just to be on the safe side.
