    Summary

    Tell me about the dream where we pull the bodies out of the lake
    and dress them in warm clothes again.
    How it was late, and no one could sleep, the horses running
    until they forget that they are horses.
    It’s not like a tree where the roots have to end somewhere,
    it’s more like a song on a policeman’s radio,
    how we rolled up the carpet so we could dance, and the days
    were bright red, and every time we kissed there was another apple
    to slice into pieces.
    Look at the light through the windowpane. That means it’s noon, that means
    we’re inconsolable.
    Tell me how all this, and love too, will ruin us.
    These, our bodies, possessed by light.
    Tell me we’ll never get used to it.

    (Richard Siken, Scheherezade)

     

    John Watson keeps on meeting people he can't manage to keep. Sherlock Holmes seems to be no exception to this rule.

    Summary

    "The stuff that you wanted to say but didn't. Say it now."
    John's not quite sure what to say to that. There are things, though. Things that he’d never said, that he’d wished he had. He’s not sure that if saying them would’ve made things better. They could’ve even made things worse, another tie to Sherlock, another thing that he loses on that cold gray morning.
    But maybe that would’ve been easier than carrying them around with him, heavy gray stones in his chest that nobody ever asked him if he wanted, dragging him down, pushing the air from his lungs, drowning him.

    Summary

    Sherlock's first Christmas back at Baker Street after The Fall wouldn't be complete without murder, mayhem, and -- of course -- John.

    (Otherwise titled 'Two Kisses and a Murder')

    (Simplified as 'The one where Molly and Greg fall in love, John goes on the hunt for the perfect Christmas gift, and Sherlock is more than a bit not good.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This story is brilliant. Original and so so brilliant. Amazingly well-written and realistic. There's one particular scene that is massively, unbelievable erotic and another very very clever and unique. All the story in itself is worth your time, so, yes, go ahead and read it.

    A precog, a telepath, an empath, and a clairvoyant walk into a bar. That their names are Sally Donovan, John Watson, Greg Lestrade, and Sherlock Holmes may or may not be highly relevant.

    Summary

    There is an ancient Chinese curse that goes something like this: May you live in interesting times. If you are a Holmes (even if only half Holmes), a tech genius, work for MI6, and use a letter as your name; interesting times are a given. If you are an ex-army doctor and happen to spend your free time trailing after a self-proclaimed sociopathic consulting detective who also happens to be a Holmes then interesting times just seem to happen. A series of stories about the three Holmes brothers.

    Summary

    Sherlock isn't surprised when he's returned from the dead and John has moved on - just slightly heartbroken. But John isn't playing fair, letting (no, making) Sherlock live with him and Mary. And Mary... Well, Mary isn't going to give John up without a fight, and can you blame her? Too bad Sherlock's sick of fighting. Rated for later chapters, written for twofacedpsycho on deviantART and tumblr. (She happens to be doing illustrations for the fic 'Something Wicked'.)

    Summary

    And extended version of my short piece called 'The beauty of it.'

    Everyone has a 'Soulname' etched onto their wrist, the name of their soulmate.
    This has always frustrated Sherlock, as John is such a common name.
    But what exactly does John's Soulname say?

    First Chapter follows Sherlock from childhood until he meets John. The rest of the chapters will (hopefully) follow the series as close as possible, although I may gloss over some bits!

    *I HAVE ALREADY WRITTEN WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE SHORT VERSION OF THIS STORY, SO DON'T READ THAT IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW!!! (Or, go read it if I'm taking too long to update!!) *

    Summary

    Prompt: Sherlock is still a virgin on his and John's wedding night. John thinks this is the hottest thing ever.
    .........

    "You're not allowed to be ridiculously gentle and soppy just because of this," Sherlock grumbled half-heartedly.
    "I will be whatever I fucking well please," John informed him.
