    Summary

    Stories just sort of...happen. To John, to Sherlock, to everyone they know. It's yet another odd fact of life, that someone somewhere will start to write, and you'll get whisked off to...someplace (not here) until you've played it out. Then your regular life starts up again, and the story fades, and you forget.

    John knew there was a way for it to happen without them, for them to opt out. Like everyone else, they didn't usually bother, but it was possible. Even easy. No one knew quite how it worked; you just stayed out of that not-quite-real space where fic took place, and it happened...someplace else. Mycroft once let slip that it happened, instead, to another version of you, one that was willing, but that made no sense and John was happier letting it be.

    Summary

    RPS. It's not true, but this one has haunted me for years.

They died together in an attempt on Everest"s unclimbed North-East ridge in 1982: The Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature was established in their memory.I should mention that most of the material in this story comes from recorded conversation or other people's writing.

    Summary

    Part 1 - Sherlock (The Walking Man)
    Part 2 - John (The Waiting Game)

    When it was all over, when the east wind had blown through and they’d picked themselves off the pavement, Sherlock said enough.

    When it was all over, when Mary was dead and Rosie didn’t have enough family left for John to risk even an adrenaline high, John watched Sherlock go.

    Eighteen years later, the real journey begins.

    Summary

    All John Watson wants is the feeling of a freshly waxed surfboard under his feet and the hot California sun baking down onto his back. To finally go pro in the newly formed world of professional surfing and leave the dark memories of his past behind him as he rips across the face of a towering blue barrel. To lounge beside the beach bonfire every evening with an ice cold beer tucked into the cool sand beside him and listen to Pink Floyd and the Doors while the saltwater dries in his sun bleached hair.

    That's all he wants, that is, until the hot young phenom taking Oahu and the Hawaiian shores by storm steps up next to him in the sand in the second round of the 1976 International Surf Competition.

    Summary

    "A great racing beast momentarily quiets. Something warm and needy uncoils deep inside of him. The careful control slips away. It's liberating. And terrifying. And he lets it pull him under."

    Why does the Holmes family never do Christmas? The origin of Sherlock's addiction and how it changed two brothers' relationship forever.
