    Summary

    A year has passed since Sherlock Holmes became a parent. but there is still much to be lived. Life will change, people will be hurt, he will move on. But in order to get to where he wants to be, Sherlock and his child must walk the long way first.

    These small hours will tell us the highlights of the first two years into Sherlock's parenthood, giving way to more of our known and beloved characters to enter the field. This part is primarily for the Holmes Clan.

    Part 5 of "The Child Verse", could stand alone but the previous parts would give more context.

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes, the world’s only Consulting Equestrian Expert, is the individual called when horse owners are out of their depth. At the behest of his elder brother, Sherlock travels to Amarillo, Texas, to investigate why a valuable bucking stallion has seemingly gone berserk for no reason and killed his trainer. The local authorities suspect the owner of fraud and possible animal abuse, but Mycroft sees parallels to an unsolved case from the 1980s wherein a racehorse killed a groom. Complicating the situation is John Watson: bronco rider, rodeo veterinarian, sexy flirt, and one of case’s primary suspects…

    Or, to put it another way: Rodeolock AU! Sherlock Holmes and John Watson running around Texas, USA in cowboy boots, Wranglers blue jeans and cowboy hats. 'Nuff said.

    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

    This was progress, not the kind he had ever expected to make, but it was better than shaking next to toilettes or losing time to cocaine. He still felt it sometimes, the calling, the dark edges of his mind; not as much as he had a month ago, but it was certainly there, he wondered if it would ever go away entirely. He hoped it would.

    Sherlock Holmes has come a long way; now that he is starting to find his footing, he wants to move forward. It's all about progress from now on. His utmost priority? Finding a job, giving his daughter a home, making a life of his own.

    Fourth part to "The Child Verse," can stand alone but always better with the other parts.

    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

    “It always comes back to Bart’s, doesn’t it?” John asked. “It’s where we met," he waved his hand around.  "where all this began."

    “And where we end,” Sherlock finished for him.

    John nodded. “Yeah, where we end,” he said.

    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.

    (aka Sherlock is a drama queen and orchestrates some truly elaborate shenanigans, à la the opening of S4e3)

    Summary

    I went to Wikipedia to find out:

                 Q: Do bees "kiss"?

                 A: When bees "kiss," they are actually passing nectar to other bees.

    Summary

    Dad, the word made the itch in his veins grow; the crooks of his elbows burning in their calling to him, their begging for an old lover. Dad, dad, dad. The word was more than genetic material, it was more than a sperm donation or a household dictator, the likes his own had been. No, dad meant bedtime stories and school lunches, museum visits, trips to the cinema, hugs, caring. He wasn’t the kind to care. Love was a weakness.

    Sherlock is struggling through withdrawal, trying to come to terms with the fact that his life has now changed forever, that he has a child, that he has to get clean, that it's time to move on. But maybe, if he's very lucky, he won't have to do it alone.

    Before "The world was ending" but after "The child he had made."
    Could stand alone, I think, but better with the other parts.

    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.

    Summary

    Sherlock’s face did a horrible twist, his throat bobbed and he closed his eyes, letting the tears fall onto the floor. She joined him, sobs rocking both of their bodies as the past months caught up with them. The fear of the world changing, the worry over the future, the pain of losing Sabel, the absolute, overwhelming, crushing panic of not knowing what was going to happen now. Sherlock was a parent, and he wasn’t anywhere near ready for it.

    Sherlock Holmes is now living with people he can hardly call friends, doing his best to adapt to the mess his life has become. He has a baby, he's dropping out of Cambridge, he is lost. Perhaps the world is ending after all.

    Summary

    Sherlock stared at it. The small creature stared back at him, wearing a piercing blue gaze he recognized as his own. He observed it for the first time in days, taking in the terrifyingly fragile thing that laid on the small replica of a bed. The thing he had made in his stupidity, the thing he was dooming in his weakness, the single thing he had left from the only person he’d found interesting in these wretched halls -and the only one who had been capable of tolerating him in return. She would be so disappointed, he was failing her. He was ruining it, just as he always feared he would.

    Lost in a haze of alcohol and drugs and reeling from loss, Cambridge student Sherlock must make a choice. What happens now? He may just ruin it.

    ---

    So, this is just an idea that had been invading my head for days, so I decided to write it down and see what happens. It's pre-canon, so Sherlock is still a nineteen-year-old kid. Long before he became the Consulting Detective we all know and love.
    There did need to be a female companion here, but I have always considered Sherlock to have a preference for men, it just seems natural, so the dynamic a bit weird. But then, this is Sherlock.

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes has experienced heartbreak exactly twice.

     

    The first was a mistake, a bout of childish and misguided puppy love.

     

    The second time someone broke Sherlock Holmes’s heart, it was purely his fault.
