    Summary

    After it happened, John chalked it up to being piss-ass drunk. Sherlock wasn't saying anything about it, so it obviously didn't mean anything to the consultant, which was a good thing. It really was. John was fine with that, because he was not gay. They could get over this hump in their friendship. John would just pretend to have no memory of that heated night. It wasn't like it had been the greatest sex of his entire life. It wasn't like his body seemed to shrivel up with a sense of emptiness and an indescribable longing to have Sherlock. It wasn't like his chest constricted painfully and ached to have that fullness as it once had.

    No... It really wasn't like that...

    If that was the case… Why did John keep letting it happen?

    Summary

    Dark Fic: Young Sherlock will do anything to block out the memories--hide out on the streets, self harm, drugs--but they still come bubbling to the surface. One night, a police officer comes across him (Lestrade) and offers to take him home. Unsure of the officers motives, Sherlock agrees. Has he made a mistake or is Lestrade finally someone who he can truly trust?

    [Fill for the Prompt: The general consensus in the fandom is that Lestrade met Sherlock when he was a drug addict, then took him home and helped him get clean. Yes? Yes.

    But see, Sherlock knows that there’s only one reason an older man would take Sherlock to his house and show him this sort of kindness. Lestrade only wants him around for the same reasons as every other older man who ever ‘wanted him around’. He realizes he’s in no position to turn Lestrade down -- he needs the security, and has nowhere else to go at the moment -- so Sherlock preps himself and slips into Lestrade’s bed.]

    Story is set when Sherlock is 17 and after a traumatic experience.

    Summary

    John never forgave Sherlock for the fall. So when he came back from the dead they decided to go their separate ways. Each took one of their identical, twin, one year old daughters (biologically Sherlock’s), cutting off all contact for the next sixteen years. John moved to the States, accepting an offer from an old mate to join the local police force, while Sherlock stayed in London, though not at Baker Street. They never intended to meet again. Though fate it seems has other plans when Artemis Holmes and Athena Watson meet by chance. But is it within their power to bring their parents back together?

    Summary

    John never truly considered the idea of fate.
    It was merely a fairy tale in his eyes, something that kept the monsters in the closet. Fate was in league with hope; John, of all people, knew how dangerous hope could be. Fate was defined as the development of events beyond a person's control. John liked to be in control. Perhaps that is why fate had always fallen into the category of terror, horror, danger – in John’s mind, at least.
    John never truly considered the idea of fate. Until now.

    John Watson just wants to become a doctor; preferably an army doctor. And he's not doing so bad - his internship is going, frankly, swell. But then he meets a street kid by the name of Sherlock Holmes - a seemingly intelligent, yet distraught boy with a dog that follows him everywhere. They keep running into each other - John is convinced it's coincidence, fate even, but according to Sherlock the universe is rarely so lazy.
    John takes it upon himself to aid the mind of a traumatized, and brutally treated teen, even when said teen is arrogant, ungrateful, and a bit of a bastard. AU
