    Summary

    In the wake of Moriarty's unveiling, John Watson must traverse the pitfalls of friendship (while on the hunt for a killer) and learn just what lengths he'll have to go through to have Sherlock Holmes as a partner.

    //
    Sherlock swallowed. "This case is important to me, John. It comes first."

    "I know."

    "You will not interfere with my feelings on it. Just as it will not interfere with my feelings about you. These things are to remain separate within me. You have to understand that."

    "I do. I understand."

    They were an inch apart now, building heat in each other's eyes. Sherlock's blazed with pale fire, while John's roiled dark like the sulfur vents at the bottom of the sea. They lived as two things purely elemental, opposite and true.

    "And you will still have me?"

    Summary

    One-shot, takes place after The Great Game at the end of Series 1. Written before Series 2 resolved the issue. A take on the Holmes/Watson dynamic. Written as friendship but I guess could be shippy if you want to read it that way. Platonic or not, as a couple, they make me squee like a fan girl.

    Summary

    Sherlock had refused to back down, and Moriarty carried out his threat: he had burned his heart. He also cut his heart, beat his heart, starved his heart. For three days, he tortured Sherlock’s heart nearly to death. Now his heart was fighting for his life.

    Summary

    "Yes I know that," Sherlock glanced towards his flatmate with a disapproving stare. "But why?"

    "Because Sherlock! The greatest mind of the century is sat knitting scarves and weaving ponchos!"

    Summary

    John narrates how he and Sherlock decided to deepen their connection and forge a new relationship, post The Great Game.

    "What I'm trying to say is that I'm interested in pursuing more of a relationship between us. And I want to know how you feel about that," I finished. Now that I had finally gotten to my material point and been encouraged by Sherlock's attentive posture, I felt good about the time and place as well.

    Summary

    May 2013 - January 2014. Same universe as Never Once Failed (probably best to read the rest of the series before you read this).
    What I imagine happening after the encounter in The Great Game; I wasn't convinced by The Reichenbach Fall, the Holmes boys wouldn't leave it so late to take down Moriarty. Sherlock and Mycroft are a formidable team. Established Johnlock - like I said, best thing to do is read the rest of the series first!

    Now, I have put the Graphic Depictions of Violence warning on here just to be safe, but
    1: In terms of what goes as "Graphic Violence" I don't actually think it's very graphic (and I've got a very weak stomach myself). But better be safe than sorry.
    2: It's not actually vital for you to read the violent bit (Chapter 8) - you can just read the clean summary I've popped on that chapter if you'd rather not risk it but would still like to continue with the story.

    Also, Moriarty dies. But since that fact is canon, I'm not putting it down as "Major Character Death".

    Explicit only for the smut in the last chapter. Everything else is "Mature" at most.

    Summary

    Cause:
    Sherlock makes a mistake at begrudgingly trying to follow Mycroft’s advice.

    Effect:
    He accidentally encourages John to go out with an intern from the Yard.

    Results:
    The only solution is to crash said date and make John realise his mistake. Obviously.

    James realizes that he can't drink the pain away and decides to try another way to distract from the pain, but paperwork can be so boring after a while.
