    Summary

    “Do keep up, John,” I said. “When you applied to be a donor, you did not check the box to keep your identity secret. At the time, you were at uni, studying to be a doctor, and you thought it would be wise to let the recipient of your genetic material have access to your medical history. Obviously Ariel’s mother had that information in a file, and Ariel, knowing that her mother had information about her father, consulted this when choosing her destination. She got your address from the Office of Veterans’ Affairs. When Mrs Hudson answered the door, she informed her that you are her father, and Mrs Hudson let her in.”

    “Destination?” John whispered.

    “I’ve run away,” Ariel said. “I’m going to live with you now.” She turned to me. “Are you his boyfriend?”

    OR: John discovers he has a daughter. Maybe more than one. Surprisingly, it's all fine.

    Summary

    Thirteen years ago, Sherlock starred in a television series about an alien boy stranded on Earth. Now Molly has written a reunion episode and he's expected to join his old costars and recreate the role of Alex Tribble, now an adult returning to rescue his old friends from an alien threat. Having had some success since playing a teenage alien, Sherlock is reluctant to reprise the role. And there's another problem no one wants to discuss: John Watson, who played his best friend, is dead.

    Warning: Nobody dies. John isn't dead. If you came here for angst and MCD, you won't find it. If you came here to find a cheesy, self-indulgent story with a ridiculous, contrived happy ending that I had way too much fun writing, here you go.

    Summary

    “Do you know that poem?” John asks him. “’Do not go gentle into that good night’?”
    “Yes,” Sherlock says.
    “’Rage, rage, against the dying of the light’?”
    “I know it.”
    John takes his hands between his own. The texture of his skin is pressed against Sherlock’s once more.
    “Let’s go gently,” he says.
