    Summary

    Sherlock has just returned from the dead, but in this timeline Mycroft suggests he track John down before his date with Mary. No drawn-on moustaches (one real one, though). No punches thrown. Just a more emotionally aware John, thrilled to have his best friend back. Oh and they're both really sensitive. And quite in love. (Obviously.)

    My legs propel me forward and I find myself sliding onto the bench, to his right. I leave a few feet between us, glance sideways, and wait. His eyes reluctantly leave the water as he looks over, annoyed that someone dare invade his space. I watch as the annoyance flickers, replaced swiftly by utter shock. His eyes widen, slowly, growing impossibly large on his ever-expressive face. His body turns toward me as if of its own accord, his mouth parting, hands shooting up to hover over it as he gapes. We stare at each other. I watch as his mind frantically tries to accept what's in front of him. My heart has regrown and is threatening to beat a hole through my chest. My stomach has come back, only to drop away again, leaving me to feel like I'm falling. Falling fast. Panic creeping in. We stare and stare. He says nothing.

    Summary

    John's latest blog entry will be as interesting as ever, with their latest client being the suspect of a recent murder. All the odds are stacked against her, and so are the facts. Mycroft takes an interest in the case, which leads Sherlock to meddle his way into it too.

    Sure enough, the consulting detective has his work cut out for him again, and the good doctor will be there to document the new face on baker street.

    Summary

    Sherlock had spent a very long time feeling very, very lonely.

    He had never realised this, of course. Until John Watson came along into his life, and Sherlock realised there had been an empty space there that John had filled up perfectly.

    Summary

    You aren't exactly fond of Sherlock. He might be brilliant, but he's rude and arrogant. Not to mention he lives a dangerous life. As an American only staying in London for a year, you weren't exactly planning to hang around. But when a shocking turn of events leaves you moving into 221B, you find yourself constantly in the company of the great detective and John Watson. Perhaps you will find that Sherlock isn't so bad, after all.

    You never wanted to get swept up into Moriarty's game, but once you have, you realize there is no escape. Sherlock is the only thing standing between your life and your death, but Moriarty threatens at every possible turn. Everything you both know will be tested. Will the game make you... or break you?

    Summary

    Four steps back, enemy steps forward once.
    Swings left hand at jaw, can easily be deflected with right arm thrown up.
    Stun with a straight punch to the throat,
    then discombobulate.
    Thrown off guard, enemy can be easily sweep-kicked to the ground.
    While grounded, stomp directly on primary knee to render standing useless..
    Direct kick, right under the left rib's side.
    .
    .
    .
    Victory.
    ----------------------
    Sherlock wasn't planning on nearly passing out tired and cold outside of the 221 Baker Street flat, but that's just about what had happened. He couldn't go on, without anything to eat or drink when running from Liverpool, just to get away from a fleet of mobsters. He had been claimed a madman, a host of black magic, and even claimed insane. On numerous occasions, the man had struck a crowd dumbfound. It all was in the sake of science, or there proven to be so.
    So what was with Sherlock and trying to stop people from ruin? What was the man after?
    .

    .
    Does Sherlock even know?

    Summary

    Sometimes you don't really find yourself until everything has ended.

    A fic about finding love, healing, and purpose after everything has gone to hell.
    __________________

    As if the doctor can read Sherlock's thoughts, he holds out a protein bar in the space between them. Sherlock’s eyes narrow on the man and flick to the bar with an expression of disgust.

    “You're at least one stone underweight,” the soldier states matter-of-factly, confirming for Sherlock, in yet another way, that he is a doctor.

    “Eating slows me down,” Sherlock grumbles.

    “No, fainting does.” The army doctor smiles kindly, patiently. Sherlock looks at him with confusion.

    “What do you care?” Sherlock snaps. The soldier’s smile deepens and he gives a casual shrug, turning his eyes to the road a moment.

    “You faint; we crash.” The soldier’s eyes slide back to Sherlock with their placid expression.

    Summary

    It wasn’t that John was particularly surprised by the presence of the statue in the BPRD, only a bit perplexed at the location it had been placed. Every hall of the base seemed to be covered in priceless and ancient artifacts, the collection being added upon with every mission. Though in this case, John had expected some sort of... what was the word? Subtlety?...Precaution perhaps. But here it was, a mummified statue of the fallen Prince Nuada Silverlance of Bethmoora, just stood in the corner of the library.

    or a fic where John comes back from Antarctica and spends quite a bit of time with the not-so-dead-statue of Nuada.

    Summary

    The fact of his pulse,
    the way he pulled his body in, out of shyness or shame or a desire,
    not to disturb the air around him.
    Everyone could see the way his muscles worked,
    the way we look like animals,
    his skin barely keeping him inside.
    I wanted to take him home
    and rough him up and get my hands inside him, drive my body into his
    I wanted to be wanted and he was
    very beautiful, kissed with his eyes closed, and only felt good while moving.
    You could drown in those eyes, I said."

     

    -Richard Siken, Little Beast

     
    Sherlock can understand the poetry of it. Soul mates, eternal love, the gaps between your fingers where another's will fit in perfectly.
    Such things, however, are meant for people who are whole and unbroken.

    Summary

    What if things aren't exactly what they seem? What if reincarnation was a thing? And beyond that, memories of past lives are retained. Enter John Watson, a fairly normal every-man with a habit of going on "adventures", anything from a few days to a few months. He just ... goes where the road leads him. But the adventurous child grows into a man and his nomadic ways come to an end as he joined the British Army. For another thirteen years, he goes where the Army sends him and serves his country as an army doctor. It's what happens after his service ends that makes things interesting. Well, more interesting, in any case. Not that his career was anything close to boring.
