    Summary

    One day when leaving the library, John Watson notices a kid hobble past him sporting a black eye and clutching his side. Being the caregiver he is, John immediately tires to help. It turns out the kid, Sherlock Holmes, is in a class John TAs for and categorically refuses help. But the injuries keep coming, and John is persistent, so Sherlock eventually relents and accepts John's offer of self-defense lessons.

    Over the course of their lessons a friendship develops, and both John and Sherlock end up getting more than they bargained for.

    Summary

    Irene Adler has vanished.

    A year since Moriarty's broadcast, Sherlock Holmes' sanity is already fragile when Molly Hooper calls with a tremble in her voice. There's been a murder in St Bart's morgue and the ghastly scene boasts one inescapable conclusion: Jim Moriarty's network thrives evermore and Sherlock is being hunted for his attempt at dismantling it. But he is not the only target.

    Can Sherlock find Irene Adler to warn her when his last memories of her are faded, fragmented things? How long can he hide what he took from the St Bart's crime scene? Is searching for the Woman worth risking the safety of Molly, or Lestrade or everyone else he cares about? Will he really have a choice?

    Summary

    Co-Written with the lovely Kaitlin, who is actually not on this site, but who has helped me create this amazing fic. We both went over it, and had a friend look it over as well, but I can't promise it's perfect! Sorry if something really stands out, and don't be afraid to send me a message to let me know! Thanks! This started on the prompt: Imagine you are dating an immortal and you discover an album of their exes and they all look like you. Imagine they have been dating past incarnations of you to try and get you to remember, so that you can finally stay with them forever.

    Mycroft Holmes was born in 60 B.C.E in the Roman empire, and found Greg in 27 B.C.E. Since then, they have lead several lives together, Greg always coming back to him throughout the centuries, but this time, when he finds the silver haired fox, turns out the man is already married.
