    Summary

    After two lonely and painful years away eliminating the threads of Moriarty’s web, Sherlock comes home to find John living with Mary. John is also hurt and resentful, determined to not allow Sherlock to undermine his relationship with his new fiancée. Greg, who always thought Sherlock and John belonged together, becomes a closer friend to Sherlock. He gives the Consulting Detective a place to stay, a friend to have dinner with, someone who will listen to him. He tries to keep all interfering feelings at bay. As Sherlock notices his friendship with Greg becomes stronger, he begins to accept that maybe he can be alright even with John not living at Baker Street any more. He and Lestrade can work at the Yard, and talk about cases. Greg is good at rescuing Sherlock when John and Mary’s wedding preparations get intense. They are friends. This is enough for Sherlock. Right?

    Summary

    “Sherlock”, he tried again, shaking the shoulder a bit, “talk to me Sunshine.”
    “I need”, it was a whisper, so low he hardly caught it at all. 
    What do you need, lad?”
    “No Graham, I…”, Sherlock swallowed audibly from where he was, eyes still closed. When he spoke again, it was with an old misery he had hoped never to hear again, “I need.”

    --

    Greg Lestrade has an unexpected visitor in the middle of the night; it's not the first time and it probably won't be the last. But is the repetition of an old ritual a much direr situation than he had originally thought?

    Summary

    ~~“Ah, Lestrade. I must tell you: John & I-”
    ~~“Are getting married?” Lestrade interrupted Sherlock.

    This one is almost entirely BBC based.

    Greg Lestrade & Molly Hooper have been waiting & waiting for Sherlock & John to announce their engagement, especially since they've started raising a child together. Mary, like the Polyamorous hottie she is, sent a video message to her secondary, Molly Hooper, planning out John & Sherlock's wedding.
    (NOTE: This can be read without the trans part. It's basically just a post series 4 johnlock wedding.)
