    Summary

    At seventeen past eight Sherlock blows through the door with a dry leaf in his hair, stripping off his gloves, the scarf, the coat, John’s gun, soft sheddings and a thud. John, on the sofa, head full, just enough of a fever to make everything seem soft and strange and not entirely unpleasant, picks up a smile through the fog.

    John’s a bit haunted.
    It’s all right.

    Summary

    The last thing you find, sometimes, is exactly what you’re looking for.

    You might find anything at low tide. A pectin. A claw. A scrolled message. The sea in a variegated ladies ear.

    Sherlock talking about the chirality of gastropods as he might molecules.

    Summary

    “No, Sherlock,” John continues, “I wasn't sat in 221B for three years eating jam and haunting the rooftop of St. Bart's. Who d'you think I am, mate? Not as if you were the first friend I've lost. You pick up the pieces and move on. Course I missed you. Course it was hard. It's not like I was going to just fall to pieces though, was I? That's just not me.”

    Sherlock returns to find Dr. Watson a recent widower. John is handling things very well, but Sherlock, with all his usual tact and grace, discovers the perils of insulting Mrs. Watson. Follows the events of "The Empty House" pretty damn faithfully.

With Lestrade now his bitter enemy, John has to solve the case on his own...or does he?

    ****

    "Empty Houses" was written during the hiatus between the end of Series 2 and the beginning of Series 3. As of "Empty Hearse," the events depicted here are no longer consistent with canon. They remain, however, consistent with your burning desire to ship John and Sherlock.
