    Bookmarker's Notes

    At night he kisses John and breathes across his tongue as they make love, as if there's enough love in his lungs to pour into him that when they tangle together like this, they might float away forever.

    Just fuck me up. I definitely cried while reading this.

    "She glanced up at him and smiled around her mouthful. He had one arm crooked up behind his head to support it so he could watch her, lazily - like a pasha, the image shot through her mind."

    Sarah has the right idea...and then plot twist!

    This one made me cry during my first read. So good, so painful, so real. A peek at a stormy relationship that two people never should've started to begin with. Highly recommended.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Sherlock doesn’t talk much, finds himself uncharacteristically lacking for words. He’s content to let John take care of him, to just be here together, and allow whatever’s blooming between them to take root. All he knows is that he dreams of pipe smoke and muslin underclothes, of John’s mouth on his bare back, hands sliding up the insides of his thighs, John whispering I love you into the darkness of a candle lit room. He remembers soft skin and wet mouths, the thump of John’s heartbeat against his ear.

    Personally, I feel this is how the Christmas special should have ended.
