    Summary

    Sometimes, one makes an imprudent decision born of a devastating combination of drink and sentiment. Sometimes, the consequences of that decision take on a life of their own. And sometimes, the facing of those consequences shapes every aspect of one's life--from the hugely meaningful down to the seemingly insignificant.

    Summary

    Sherlock fled London a couple of years after John left him in hospital with nothing but an old walking stick and a half-hearted goodbye.

    Rosie grew up thinking that Sherlock died when he committed suicide in front of her father by jumping from Barts' roof.

    So it's somewhat awkward when they run into each other in a Sussex general store between the loaves of bread and the Mars bars...

    Summary

    When Sherlock woke up in the hospital, again, alone, again, with the dullness of morphine lying over him like a smothering blanket, again, he had to close his eyes for a long, long moment. But then he gritted his teeth and reached to punch down the level on his PCA. If the only thing he could control was how much narcotic was being dumped into his system, then by God he would control it.
