    Summary

    Because of the biting cold outside we’d pushed the sofa as close to the fire as was safe, with me sitting at one end and him perched on the other. Wrapped in his dressing gown he once again reminded me of a bird, perhaps one of those commonly thought of as omens of strange and momentous events.

    Summary

    Love like theirs has never come easy. It must be held with gentle hands and treated with equally gentle actions, lest it break. It must be practiced, in fits and starts, and like any student grown frustrated with a difficult piece, left to sit in solitary for a time.

    ---
    A post-series 2 alternate timeline in which Sherlock and John learn that loving someone takes practice and sometimes time apart.

    Summary

    "When I first met John Watson, I had just moved to Baker Street and he had been home from Afghanistan nearly six months. We'd both been evicted about the same time: I for a disagreement with my landlord about chemical experiments and he for a plain and simple lack of cash. My brother had picked up the pieces for me; his had not."

    In which Watson turns to prostitution after his return from Afghanistan, like plenty of other British soldiers, but of course Holmes finds him anyway.

    "A bit of scarlet" is late 19th/early 20th century homosexual slang for sex with a soldier. OBVIOUSLY.
