    Summary

    Written Pre-Season 4 [completed and published before 1/1/17 and "canon compliant at the time of posting"] although the events take place Post-Season 4:

    John rescues a child from a car explosion and suffers physical and emotional consequences-vertigo, deafness, PTSD. With his family taken from him, only Sherlock is left to pick up the pieces. Will John let him? [As this was written before Season 4, it makes certain assumptions. If S4 follows canon trajectory, Mary and baby will die. This fic makes no predictions how. Warning: Casefic chapters 7-16, refer to crimes of pedophilia.)

    Summary

    Sherlock is home, he and John are returning to cases, and all's right with the world--right? But a series of minor mishaps and injuries makes two things very clear to his friends and family: first, Sherlock's time away wasn't the grand adventure everyone has assumed it was; and second, that time has left Sherlock with a legacy that's bleeding into his life today. Sherlock is Not Okay, and it's not going away.

    EDIT: I have now made this part of a series, since I am going to be doing occasional one-offs in this same universe.

    WORKS INSPIRED BY THIS ONE: The lovely Aunt_Didi has begun a podfic of this work--it can be found on both of our dashboards.

    Summary

    ..."Pressure points?" she laughs without humor, "where do you pick up these extraordinary expressions?"...

    A series of missing scenes detailing what inspired the scenario that unfolded inside Sherlock's mind palace in The Abominable Bride. A ghost...a book...biscuits...a kiss...and a phone call.

    Each chapter takes place sometime during HLV and includes at least one line of dialog from TAB, although not necessarily said by the same character(s) or in the same context.

    Summary

    At the precise moment Sherlock’s plane had lifted off of England’s soil, a video of James Moriarty appeared on every screen in the country.

    Sherlock has been recalled from exile to face off against the man who once threatened to burn the heart out of him and made him jump off a roof. But Sherlock saw Moriarty die.

    So who is behind the video and what do they want?

    For once Sherlock doesn't know, and he can only play his pieces in what may be a deadly game of mental chess against an unknown opponent.

    "I saw Moriarty die. I can’t believe it’s him, but whoever this is, clearly they share his penchant for playing games. The video interruption was merely his opening salvo, his pawn to e4. He took first move advantage and claimed dominance of the board, but the game is not won or lost in the opening move."

    Summary

    Five years after the events of His Last Vow, John Watson finds himself once again in mourning: for the wife he lost too soon, the daughter he never knew, and the life he thought he'd have. He’d have to find a new normal. Take the blanket of his sorrow and fold it into a pocket square to remain tucked hidden over his heart, just a corner peaking up to public view every now and again.

    *****

    Sherlock had adjusted when John moved out. There was never any thought to another flatmate. To find one person willing to live with him had been a miracle, and Sherlock Holmes did not hold much stock in miracles.
    And yet, here was Doctor John Watson sitting in his old chair, with a duffle next to it filled with seven, no six days’ worth of clothes, and adrift as the day Sherlock met him.

    Summary

    Begins in the month after the wedding, and goes to the end of HLV. Follows Something Broken but will stand alone. One caution: Not everything is what it seems in the beginning. Sherlock would add: It's dangerous to draw conclusions without sufficient data. There were a lot of motives left unexplained in the broadcast episode. This story's point is to fix that.

    Summary

    It's easy to take something for granted when it's all around you. Sherlock enjoys a meal. John makes a long overdue deduction.

    (This story was heavily edited in parts on October 10th, 2016) after some boots on the ground research in Montenegro.)

    Summary

    After Mary shot Sherlock, the detective feared the assassin would do the same to John, or worse. Unbeknownst to Sherlock and John, Mary had already put a bullet through the doctor-- the woman who was tearing them apart was responsible for bringing them together in the first place.

    This is a "fill-in the blanks" back story, and doesn't really mess with canon. Part of the story is lifted from Sherlock series three, episode three, "His Last Vow."
