    Summary

    The detective’s head snaps up, his pupils wide and dark. “It was to protect you,” he hisses, face contorting into something ugly and foreign. “Everything I’ve done was to protect you! Leaving you behind, taking down Moriarty’s network, watching you choose her -” he cuts himself off, running a shaking hand through his curls. “I didn’t know she would try to finish the job, John. I honestly didn’t know how far she was willing to go.”

    “Then why? Why did you…”

    Sherlock laughs, high and hollow, staring at the skull over the mantle. “I thought it would keep you safe. God, sentiment can be so blinding!”

    John inhales sharply, reaching back to steady himself against the desk, the wood digging into his palm. “Sentiment?”

    "Honestly, John,” Sherlock whispers, leaning back against the wall with a wince. “You see, but you don’t observe.”

    Sherlock's smile is crooked and shaky and uncertain what it's doing on his face, but Victor just smiles back. And then there's Sebastian, and a mirror, and a razor, and a straw. He smiles at Sherlock like he has a secret.

    Summary

    Now complete!

    The first time it happened was completely by accident.

    Post-Reichenbach, John finds a way to hold on to Sherlock after all.

    Prepare yourself for 1.) angst 2.) plot 3.) smut 4.) more smut 5.) even more smut 6.) more plot 7.) happy ending. But, in apparently WAY too many chapters. If you're worried about the graphic violence / torture, be aware it's limited to Chapter 30. Probably canon-typical, but I'd rather over-warn than under-warn.

    Here's an excerpt, just to give you hope through the angsty first few chapters:

    "I am going to seduce you, Sherlock Holmes," he rumbled into Sherlock's ear, smiling as Sherlock's breath grew unsteady again. "Not because you need it, but because you deserve it. We both do." He gave Sherlock a squeeze. "Trust me?"

    Sherlock's head lifted, those uncanny pale eyes looking at John with complete sincerity. "I've always trusted you, John."

    John felt the last bit of tension leaving his shoulders. "Good." He kissed Sherlock one more time, swift and soft — a promise. "That's good."

    Summary

    Just because Sherlock stopped, doesn't mean the Work has to. London is John's city now and he will keep it together with stitching, string, his healing, the food off his table, and sometimes the clothes off his back. John Watson keeps going. He's good at that.

    Summary

    Your Patron helps define you, your chosen god helps influence the path of your life. Yet John has no Patron Sherlock can see and that niggling itch of a question shoved determinedly to the back of his mind is getting stronger every day.

    In a world where every person has a Greek god as a Patron, who is John Watson's?

    Summary

    John, wounded and silent, drifts back to Baker Street for healing...and then goes home again. He visits, gets more upbeat, chattier, smiles, jokes... and still goes home again. Sherlock wants him to move back in - it just makes sense - but John shows no signs of doing so.

    This is the story of how John and Sherlock learn to say what needs to be said when they're both so very, very rubbish at talking.

    Summary

    Inspired by a fic idea on tumblr : "John and Sherlock know the Yard has a pool going for when they’re finally going to get together. It’s been running forever, and it’s worth thousands of pounds. It’s all fun and games, hahaha, until they find out Lestrade is in dire financial straits (dog needs emergency surgery, he’s putting his kid through gymnastics training, I don’t know, something), and they decide to fake a relationship to win the pool for him. Sherlock figures out the day and way that Lestrade thinks it’s going to happen, and they act it out. It’s all for a good cause, fake relationship style, until it’s not."

    Summary

    Sherlock is in love with John Watson. John Watson is in love with Mary Morstan. Sherlock likes Mary Morstan just fine. Sherlock likes drugs more. And most importantly, Sherlock doesn’t like Sherlock.

    String theory dictates the laws of the universe. But their story isn’t one that can be boxed up neatly, tied in a heartstring bow.

    "After all, the axioms of homeostasis dictate that an infinity sign of negative feedback can only loop back in on itself.”

    Summary

    Things were good, all told. Weren’t they? He had a job he was good at, a modest flat, a fantastic daughter who worried about him a bit too much for comfort, an ex he could at least speak with without it devolving into shouting and tears, and his car was in decent repair. On paper he was doing just fine. So why did he feel so…at a loss?

    Furthermore, Greg and Mycroft weren't actually dating. Mycroft was just a casual shag. This was an important thing to remember.
