    Summary

    Margaret Archer is a newly homeless woman in the city of London, when she is saved off the streets by the sweet-mannered Mrs. Hudson. Just as Mrs. Hudson begins tending to the scared girl, the very Sherlock Holmes enters the woman's kitchen with his newly-established flatmate, John Watson. Sherlock notices something immediately about the small, frail woman sitting in his landlady's kitchen.
    She can't look anyone in the eye.
    Maggie has social anxiety. She cannot function in many social situations, and has a hard time meeting new people. Yet Sherlock sees something in her, and brings her along on a case for what he calls a 'test of her abilities.' If she's good enough, brilliant enough, he may just keep her around.

    I'm kinda bad at summaries, but please read the story and give me some feedback. It's my first real fanfic, and I'd really like to know how I'm doing. Comments and kudos are extremely appreciated!

    Summary

    John and Sherlock were a couple before the series starts. They lost each other when John went to war and were reunited during the events of 'To Lovers Lost'. Now they really need to figure out their relationship and deal with some issues. But how are they supposed to do that when the world around them is set on fire? Will their love survive their run-in with Moriarty and the events at the swimming pool?

    It's recommended to read 'To Lovers Lost' first.

    Summary

    John would not, before tonight, ever have thought he’d have a reason to be happy that a band of Chinese smugglers mistook him for Sherlock and so pistol-whipped, then kidnapped him. However, as he sits next to Sherlock in the cab home from the tramway, Sherlock’s reaction gives him the best reason in the world.

    Summary

    John Watson is an ex-army doctor with a gun and no reason to live. Sherlock Holmes is the brilliant woman in the flat next door with a habit of chasing off any previous neighbours. And yet somehow they seem to get along.

    "Ah," he cleared his throat. "Yes, hello? I'm your, ah, neighbor, and I just wondered if you could help me out with somethi-" the door flew open and a dishevelled woman glanced him over.
    "Ah." He cleared his throat again. "Sorry. Didn't mean to wake you."
    "Slept for three days. Probably about time. Need to eat. Come in." She spoke quickly, as usual.
    "Sorry - three days?" he asked without thinking, limping in. She shut the door behind him and turned toward what must be the kitchen. He tried not to stare at how unkept she was - she had striped silk pajamas and a large houserobe on - it looked much like her large coat when she moved quickly.
    "Had a case right after the assassin. Didn't get much sleep. Ate two pizzas and went to bed. Didn't recieve any texts - would have woken. Must have just slept."
    John wondered vaguely if her bladder was made of steel.

    Summary

    An ever-expanding series of meta on the topic the narrative structures of Sherlock. As a whole, this is seriously the most mindblowing and important thing I have ever realized about the show. This has absolutely broken my brain, and now I see it everywhere I look. Also, Doctor Who fans—you're going to facepalm. Seriously. Moffat really has basically managed to turn Sherlock into Doctor Who.

    Summary

    Settling himself in his own chair, John says nothing until it becomes apparent that Sherlock’s lost somewhere inside his own mind. So he shifts and takes a sip of wine – it is terrible, but it was cheap and he can live with that trade-off - and says, “So you knew Sebastian at Oxford, then?”

    Summary

    When John’s heat failed to appear three times in a row after he was shot, he figured it was just another broken piece off the broken toy soldier. So he was rather surprised to feel it start out of the blue...and not at all pleased with it starting while he was on the tube.
