    Summary

    The melody started to materialise in front of him. John let his mind lead him through the melancholy rhythm. There was a violin somewhere in his mind, playing along with him, as his teacher had done once. He ached for the chance to be able and guide someone else through a piece, for two different melodies to clash and entwine harmoniously together. He would never have that again. This was his last time. The last time he played. The last time he would feel the softness of the keys under his fingertips. The last time he would let his will elevate his mind to press deeply in every single note. The slow melody enveloped him, suffocated him.

    John has kept his childhood hidden for years. Sherlock has of course deduced most of it but there is a certain secret which he cannot possibly imagine. John has a talent that he is deeply ashamed of and he is determined to keep it hidden forever. But with the famous detective by his side for so long, it is a matter of time when Sherlock Holmes will begin suspecting that something's missing. Will he ever find out? Will John ever be free to make his dreams come true? Will a secret such as this bring them closer like they both want for years now?

    Summary

    John and Greg are invited along to the Holmes' Christmas dinner. Mummy asks for some music. Sherlock won't play the violin for them because he's having a sulk, so Mycroft volunteers John to play for them. John protests a bit since it's been years since he played, but Mycroft is very confident his skills haven't wasted away. They haven't. Sherlock isn't sure how he feels about this (doesn't like not having picked up on it, hates that Mycroft knew first) but eventually takes up a post by the piano. Maybe there is a violin-piano duet after.

    Summary

    Based on the vid Heart Of Stone By Avididyfire

    John is content to drown.
    It's been nearly three years, and though others might disagree, he is content in the fact that he will never be whole.
    It's nothing to be ashamed of, it's okay to be broken. Convinced that nothing will fix him, he makes do with what he has. Tries to live on.
    He almost succeeds.
    What happens when Sherlock Holmes comes back, and both men realize that it's his return and not his death that might finally shatter them?

    ****

    "Believe what you will. Come on, We're going home."

    "No."

    The detective's head snaps around, pale eyes widening in minute surprise and confusion. John however has never been more focused before in his life. His voice is unwavering, his shoulders soldier-stiff as he refuses to look away from Sherlock's face. His left hand trembles at his side.

    "You have no idea what you've put me through. And I refuse, I refuse to ever let myself feel that way again"
