    Bookmark Notes:

    “Genius needed an audience, and Sherlock had been living inside a self-made echo chamber for far too long. It was part of what made trapping John into staying such an easy concept to swallow. Sherlock had no sounding board but his own mind, his own views, which were biased by his desires and needs. Because of this lack of conscience, he didn’t bother with things like right and wrong. Refused to consider the ramifications of his actions if it meant he got what he wanted.”

    Ch 20. “He suddenly seemed larger than life, his intensity sucking the limited oxygen from the air and leaving John to drown above water. “Queen and Country don’t mean anything to me, John,” Sherlock said, staring at him, eyes unblinking. “All I want is my life back. To clear my name and regain what I lost. And you’re the one who can help me do that.”

    Sherlock’s words felt like a physical blow, knocking the air from John’s lungs. All those years spent drowning in his own past and trauma, and this was what would finally do him in: this moment. Sherlock and his ardour would succeed in suffocating John where everything else had failed. He clenched his jaw and forced his shaking hands to fall still. “So that’s it, then?” John asked, relieved to hear his voice emerge sounding far steadier than he felt.

    Confusion flickered in Sherlock’s face. “What?” Some of his fervid energy dulled, just enough to let John suck in a gasp of air. His aching lungs rejoiced.

    “That’s what I am to you? A one-way ticket to redemption?” John scoffed. “Hardly seems fair.”

    The perplexed look lingering in Sherlock’s eyes shifted into alarm. Reaching out, Sherlock caught hold of John by the arms before John could bat his hands away. “No,” Sherlock said, then repeated it with vehemence, “No. Not just my redemption, John. Yours, too.”

    John tensed at the statement. His redemption? Who did Sherlock think he was? Didn’t he see that John was too far gone for that? Redemption wasn’t an option for him, not anymore.

    John forced his reply out through his teeth, “Who said I give a shit about redemption?”

    Sherlock huffed. “Fine. Your freedom, then.”
