    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?

    John Watson is not the person people think he is. That's not their fault though. He's got special—natural—skills that make him an impressive actor.

    Summary

    I wanted to do something where I could show Sherlock living with John again and helping raise Rosie after the death of Mary. There is a slow sort of romance developing between the two but it revolves around or is furthered (whether accidentally or purposely) by the wee Rosie at different times. Not sure how long this will be nor what will be added, so please, mind the rating.

    Summary

    The human heart can last up to four hours on ice outside of the body. The human body can survive up to four minutes without a pulse before brain cells begin to die, starved of all necessary nutrients and air.

    Sherlock finds it hideously ironic that the part outlasts the whole.

    John Watson lives, after all, while Sherlock waits for the emotional equivalent of four minutes to pass.

    (He wonders if love is meant to hurt this much)

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes never wanted to fall in love. It would put a huge dent in the armor that his 'stone-cold disconnected genius' persona provided him, so he vowed to never feel anything beyond friendly camaraderie for anyone or anything. And, for a while, it worked--that is until Y/N came along.

    _____

    Unbeknownst to all---even to Y/N, who works at the London Public Library---Sherlock finds the classic romance novels that he pretends to scorn utterly fascinating. However, it wasn't until Y/N moved into 221B with him that he starts to realize that he can relate more to the characters in those books than he cares to admit.

    Summary

    Осень 1941 года, в Европе бушует война, немецкие подводные лодки совершают рейды на конвои союзников в Атлантике, Люфтваффе бомбят английские города, а криптографы в Блетчли-Парк лихорадочно работают над расшифровкой зашифрованных вражеских сообщений. Кто-то может подумать, что трудностей и отвлекающих маневров достаточно для своенравного дешифровщика Шерлока Холмса. Но истинные загадки еще ждут своего часа: неподдающийся шифр, странное убийство и прибытие хирурга, капитана Королевского военно-морского флота, Джона Ватсона.

    Summary

    Six months after the events on the plane, Sherlock is trying to make a fresh start. He has to renew friendships, rebuild his career and try his best to keep his life together when the first case he’s allowed to work again ties directly into the Moriarty conspiracy. But with those he holds close near and willing to support him, with one person in particular being extremely supportive, perhaps he will be able to make it after all.

    Summary

    It is not working. Whatever John was hoping to accomplish over these past six months, whatever he was hoping to prove by selling the little house he'd shared with Mary and returning to build a home out of the rubble of Baker Street has not come to pass. He is a welcome presence, but he is miserable.

    As their personal and professional relationship slowly unravels under an intangible strain, a case forces Sherlock and John to spend the night inside the London Aquarium.

    Summary

    Your pet seems to have found a new leash, Mr. Holmes. Dinner?

    Consolatory, with that ring of crimson-lipped amusement so often lacing her texts.

    (We’re not a couple, John had said. Yes you are, Irene had said.

    I’m not actually gay, John had said. Well I am. Look at us both. Irene had said.)

    He wasn’t mine. SH

    He sends it before he can overthink it.

    Her response is just as fast.

    Yes he was.

    ***

    Sherlock’s an addict, and if he can’t have cocaine he might as well have this.

    Summary

    There is a very thin wall between 221b and 221c.
     
    As if by fate, it has separated two sitting rooms that now almost morph back into one. One sitting room belongs to Sherlock Holmes (43), a pianist; and the other one to Dr John H. Watson (45), whatever he might be after everything. Theoretically, John's a war hero, an ex-surgeon, a widower, and he’s telling everyone that he develops a game which might take a lifetime.

    There is a wall between them, but they cannot be separated.

    Summary

    Mary’s dead. Sherlock should have prevented her death, should have stopped her from taking a bullet for him. He as good as killed her, and now John hated him. Overwhelming guilt and loss led Sherlock into a dark spiral.

     

    He clutched at his head as he remembered how it used to be. Coming home with John after cases, laughing in the cabs, talking in front of a fire. Now he had no one. A long walk home, in the chilly drizzle. An empty flat. No fire, no laughter, no talking. Just him, alone. The same way it had been since John got married. Really, since he had faked his death, but he and John and Mary used to sit up late and talk, which, while not ideal, was better than what he was left with now.

    A strangled scream tore its way out of his throat. He could have stopped Mary’s death. Your fault.

    Summary

    He may have ached for that London, those comforts and simplicities, especially once words never known and ever felt branded his memory palace, but he hadn’t meant to return.

    He falls into it between slips of moments, between calculated doses.

    Sherlock sees Watson’s smooth mustache and glimmering eyes after his first drag of sativa, his own skin coarse with facial hair he hasn’t cared to remove. The drug slips in his lungs like a chemical hug, engulfing him in warmth and otherness and he laughs. One more drag, and Watson’s there, fond and caring and play-irritated in that familiar must you insist on stomping all over London at half past one way. It’s a quick thing, a small grin real and whole, a dip of that absurd hat.

    Watson is gone in what could be seconds or minutes or hours or years, and with him that chemical hug evaporates too.

    Sherlock aches for things he’s never understood, nor wanted to want.

    ***

    Sherlock needs John. Sativa offers him Watson instead.

    Summary

    —and fuck he wants a hit. He wants a cigarette. He wants to burn, wants to make his lungs burn until they bleed and wants to make his heart race until it falters and falters and stops and John Watson isn’t in danger so it won’t restart.

    But they took his heroin. They took his cocaine. They took his back-ups and his stashes and his back-ups’ back-ups and his cigarettes. They rationed his nicotine patches and removed his ability to satisfy his temptations and itches and cravings.

    Hateful. Despicable. Dreadful.

    He picks up his violin, his beautiful violin, and he wants to smash it. Wants to splinter it against the wall, wants to rip it apart grain by grain until his hands bleed. Until his skin is riddled with splinters and he can think of something other than sentiment and yearning and craving.

    He doesn’t.

    ***

    Sherlock's just trying to cope.

    Summary

    (You had promised your life. You had promised your death. You’d given it once, given every inch of your skin to be tortured, given every cell of your heart to burn so you could shake Moriarty’s hand in Hell while others lived. You’d tried to give it again, tried to draw the line of fire with agitation. Tried to keep her from Mary by keeping her on you. You’d seen it and understood it and lived it from the moment her finger twitched and the bullet left the barrel. But Mary…she’d understood it too. Kindness and cruelty. I think we’re even now, she’d said in her husband’s arms. You hadn’t wanted even. You’d wanted John’s happiness, no matter the cost, no matter you or drugs or death or pain or torture. You’d weighed yourself against Mary Watson, and John had found you lacking so you picked. You picked death and she stole it from you.)

    ***

    The road to Hell is paved with good intentions, after all. It just so happens to be lined with self-destruction.
