    Summary

    A shock of black curls stood strikingly against pale skin; a contrast so severe John had the sudden urge to photograph it. Long eyelashes sat delicately on his high cheekbones and his lips were parted ever so slightly as he slept. John's eyes drifted further down from the slight collarbone sticking out from his shirt to his long fingers resting beside his head on the couch. They were the hands of a violinist, John thought absentmindedly. Long, pale and slightly crooked fingers with slight callouses along the pad of his fingertips. Even at his worst Sherlock still looked like he belonged in a Renaissance painting, all sharp edges and contrasts. Sometimes he looked more art than man.

    John and Sherlock take on a new case in Grimsby involving a murder mystery in a small town. Greg reluctantly follows.

    Summary

    Sherlock and John are caught in an acid spill, that causes the two of them to pause and think about their relationship and what they want, moving forward.

    "Well, I tried to repress it and I carried it's crown
    I reached out to undress it and love let me down
    Love let me down
    So I tried to erase it, but the ink bled right through
    Almost drove myself crazy and these words led to you
    And all these useless dreams of living alone
    Like a dog-less bone
    So come let me love you
    Come let me love you
    And then, colour me in"

    Summary

    She met them when she needed help the most, when all is lost and darkness drew the path. Now Lillian needs them again to shed some light on the new life she might have because of evil schemes doing the job of the devil.

    Her case becomes more complicated than they thought - questions with no answers, clues leading to nothing, and names bearing nonsense.

    "Don't turn people into heroes, John.

    Heroes don't exist, and if they did...

    I wouldn't be one of them."

    Summary

    John Watson hates Sherlock Holmes. The stupid bloke next door in 6A with his know-it-all attitude and his waspish tongue, the same bloke who always seems to know when John’s having a really shitty day, just so he can make it worse.

    Sherlock Holmes hates John Watson. He hates the womanizing, he hates his snarky attitude, he hates his obnoxious, red rugby jersey, and his obnoxious rugby muscles, and his loud, obnoxious laugh, he hates everything about John Watson and the only thing that would be better than John Watson moving out of room 6B forever would be John Watson getting hit by a bus.

    When the flat above Sherlock's floods, ruining his ceiling, the university forces him to move into the only place available, John's spare bedroom.

    Summary

    May I present- the crossover no one asked for- some unholy combination of Scottish Captain Watson and Private Holmes in the Dog Soldiers werewolf film universe (it can stand on its own as a werewolf/military AU). Idfk mate I just work here. My brain spouts the shite and my fingers type it.

    "“If we do happen to make contact, I expect nothing less than gratuitous violence from the lot of ya,” Watson instructs. “Just because we're firing blanks doesn't mean we have to be thinking nice thoughts. So you keep the fire down, right, you get stuck in, and you kick their fucking teeth out! Or I guarantee you special forces will be eating your bollocks for breakfast, sunshines.”

    “Hard-boiled or fried, Cap’n?” Private Hooper grins. Watson huffs a laugh, but his eyes don’t leave the treeline as he sweeps the area.

    “Scrambled.” His voice is as firm as his will. How inconvenient to have a Captain so strong and dashing. Sherlock knows better, but he is more attached to the army doctor than he should admit."

    Summary

    "Your life is not your own. It's how others remember you. How poetic.

    But there’s nothing poetic about the reasons why I’m thinking of this now. Early-onset Alzheimer's disease. That’s the monster brewing in my brain. I dislike saying it or even thinking about it, for fear that in doing so I will only grant it more power. But I can't hide from the facts anymore."

    In which Sherlock watches the telly, reacts to an impending crisis, has reassurance sex and makes a huge decision, just to save John Watson — and himself.

    Written for Alzheimer's Awareness Month (June 2022).

    Summary

    Xena Kathrine Potter is the 7-minutes younger twin sister to the great Harry James Potter.

    He is the Boy-who-lived and she is just the Girl-that-was-there-by-unfortunate-circumstances.
    Until one day she wasn’t.

    The boy who defeated the Dark Lord does have some very interesting aspects of his life’s tale, but the truth is that it had always been Xena, wowing the course of time from behind the scenes, meddling in things her brother never thought of or understood, that had been the far more interesting one between the two.

    What is one war compared to three and then some? What is one Dark lord compared to several? What are a few Death Eaters to gods, angels, demons and genius madmen? What is one world when you have the whole of the multiverse at your fingertips?

    Not all that much, is it?

    Not much at all.

    Summary

    "Doesn't it piss you off though? That he can't even be bothered to remember your name?"

    Greg looked confused. "He knows my name, I don't mind that he never uses it though. I mean, it's understandable really."

    "Understandable how?" John sipped his beer with a frown, one that only deepened when Gregs confusion turned to vague horror.

    "Fuck, I assumed you knew. Look, it's best if you talk to Sherlock about that. Not really for me to tell, mate."

    -

    Sherlock doesn't take rape or child abuse cases.
    Sherlock doesn't call Greg by his real first name.

    What John didn't know until now was that those two things are connected.
