    Summary

    He had just been learning the shape of his life after divorce when this relationship with Mycroft came along. And now a feeling of change hung about the corners of his mind like a spectre, unwilling or unable to let him go, and the sand under his feet always seemed to be shifting, shifting. Greg needed something solid to lean on.

     

    They'd fought their battles, and reached a measure of peace. But it was still going to take a little time to bring everything into accord.

    Summary

    At the very bottom of the hidden compartment of the dispatch box of John Watson, MD, under the stack of intimate papers meant only for two people’s eyes, there is a single sheet of paper. Unlike all the others, this one is pristine; it has apparently not been touched since it was written, entirely in the distinct handwriting of Sherlock Holmes.

    What if ACD Watson and BBC Watson switched places . . .

    Summary

    So. I have complicated feelings about Mary and I’ve been trying to find a theory that makes sense, has some basis in ACD canon, and explains how John might genuinely forgive her and accept her. It took me almost two years. And what I’ve come up with still doesn’t explain why Mary shot Sherlock, but maybe someone will read this and help that particular puzzle piece fit as well.

    Okay, first thing, if you straight-up hate Mary, this is not the meta for you. If you’re not happy with her, questioning her, ambivalent about her, or a fan of her, then this meta might be up your alley.

    Summary

    John Watson is the "brawn" half of a B&B team... or was. All he wants is to be assigned a new partner - even as abrasive and temperamental a brainship as Sherlock - and get back to work. But Sherlock winds up being more of a handful than John expected.

    And then there's a suspicious death.
