    Summary

    He was looking at Sherlock Holmes. Yet not the one he would have expected.

    Distinctive changeable eyes, lined by a row of long dense lashes, showed an expression of a wild animal standing in the glare of approaching headlights. Of a man driven into a corner. Simply expressed, an expression of pure horror, something you don't see on a famous consulting detective most of the time.

    John opened his mouth, but after a realisation that he has no idea of what he wanted to say, he closed it again.

    He wasn't welcomed by a mutilated, smashed face. The severed spine could be ruled out straight away, and he seemed to have all his limbs as well. He felt an endless relief when he saw solid, uninjured skin where the blood flowed the last time.

    Nevertheless, the scene he was offered tugged the carpet under his feet and he had to admit (if a bit grudgingly) that Mycroft was right–he did not exaggerate when warning him it might be a shock.

     

    PS: English isn't my native language and I'm a bit unsure of my style, but I hope you will like it. Enjoy the story!

    Summary

    "Love was just chemistry, simple and destructive. Why would sex be any different? It was horrifying to even consider that Mycroft might be right. Yet who was he to deny the most obvious of facts?
    He had no experience. Naturally, he didn’t know.
    He hated not knowing."

    Sherlock decides to do something about his lack of knowledge about sex. In his mind palace, he turns to the one he believes is most capable of teaching him: The Woman.

    Summary

    Falling, such a euphoric thing. Your stomach dropping, the wind rushing through your hair, the breath knocked out of your lungs to create that unmatchable beautifully breathless feeling. Yet I am breathless all the time. Never have I possessed the ability to draw a breath without such difficulty it made sweat colour my brow, allowing society to deem me unwell. I have accepted that, the nature of man but on my own terms, so no longer do I need these lungs that have failed me so. So carve them out till I can taste the blood mixed with the unspeakable words bubbling in my throat and do not be so cruel as to offer to catch me as I fall to my death silently. I have lived in bitter deafening silence, and please do be merciful enough to allow me to die in so, as I eternally rest in the deep, lonely grave, I and you have dug for me in my own chest.

    Even if we may be falling for an eternity, I stand by that it shall be worth it when I can finally cradle you in my arms.

    Summary

    “William had falsely embodied the devil and let sinners gather together to cast their stones upon him. His sins were no greater than those of the people who threw their stones, though they thought their hands clean, while William's were stained red for all to see.”

    Sherlock dreams of ivory wings and crimson-stained hands.

    Summary

    A dead body, a suitcase filled to the brim with cash and a simple note, asking him to investigate the attempt on James Moriarty's life made a month before.

    How can Sherlock resist?

    But not everything is as it seems, sometimes knights aren't quite righteous and dragons aren't always who you want them to be.

    Your move, Mr Holmes.

    Summary

    Sherlock's years missing back in 1891-94 included a stint drugged up in a Russian Heiress' house. From that came a child, one that began their own family. A family that spawned Luthor. Luthor, who drew his allegiances in blood. Now Kaan Holmes-Birks, the last Holmes, needs to come to terms with his past while navigating his new role as superhero Sherlock Holmes. With familial issues he never knew could exist, a homicidal uncle and the Napoleon of Crime all bearing down on him, it will take a miracle for everyone to make it out okay.

    It's a delicate tightrope, being a hero, and it's one Sherlock Holmes will have to balance. Welcome to the Sherlockverse.

    Summary

    Well, this is basically a ramble, inspired by a very angry person who believes that discussing any view but hers is somehow rude to her. So - I took her at her word and decided to toss some ideas out there and if you don't like them or see things in a different way - I am all about the fun of discussion. This is how I perceive some things on this show. To begin - a monograph on why Mary is not necessarily a good person but that she isn't an evil ogre either. I will see how this goes and if I get a few sane people who also like to share ideas rather than spew vitriol then we will continue on with such topics as Mycroft is an unsung hero and John is not a cuddly man. Please feel free to disagree but just keep it in the realm of decorum. Thanks for reading.

    Summary

    ‘Don’t you think people around the world would be better off living in a more egalitarian, classless society?’
     
    John paused at the sudden but fitting question, looking into Sherlock’s eyes that were full of determination. He admired Sherlock for how he goes after what he wants, most of the time it was not even for himself but for the benefit of the people around him. He admired how he was not afraid to try, to try and change things. 
     
    ‘Heh... Yeah. You should become a detective someday, Sherlock,’ he said with the most peaceful tone he had used so far, looking at his best friend with full respect. Sherlock’s heart warmed underneath his motivating support, his face beamed with joy.

    Summary

    Sherlock’s closed off his heart for a multitude of reasons.

    it’s easier to think when he looks at it from a neutral angle- something normal people fail to do, and he succeeds most of the time.

    but sometimes, it cracks,
