    Summary

    When John is sixteen, his Mum tells him that he’s a god. When John is thirty-six, he meets Sherlock Holmes, which is the bigger shock by far.

    Summary

    Sherlock finally finds his God. John is temporarily oblivious. Mycroft is predictably not amused.

    Definitely one THE Magical Realism stories in the fandom.

    Summary

    Sherlock takes a remarkably early retirement at 47, and convinces John that a change of pace would do them both good. They buy an old cottage on the South Downs, and exchange their nonstop life in Baker Street for quiet contemplation, bee studies, and book writing.

    They might go completely insane, but sometimes it takes stepping outside of the life you're living to find the life you want.

    Sherlock takes one last look out to the horizon, mouth downturned and brow furrowed, before seeming to shake himself and catching up to John with a few long-legged strides. John turns back toward the path cut into the cliffs, climbing steadily toward the rolling downs already green and lush in the weak April warmth.

    They reach the top and Sherlock strikes toward the west, back to where their hired Land Rover sits a mile away in a public carpark. John falls into step beside him and takes a deep breath.

     

    “I expected a case,” he starts. “A bit chilly for a walk, really, so. D’you mind telling me what we’re doing out here?”
    Sherlock doesn’t even pause, simply tucks his head down against the wind and continues walking.

    “I’m retiring,” he says simply.

    One of those really great retirement fics.

    Summary

    The mother was apparently poisoned, the son seems to have killed himself playing Russian roulette. It's a murder and a suicide. Or is it a suicide and a murder?

    At least the case is distracting John from the fact that sex with Sherlock was probably a mistake right from the start.

    John will learn to cope, one way or another.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    One of the most amazing friends to lovers stories I've read in the fandom. Not only is John actually straight and struggling, but we get Sherlock's side as well. The juxtaposition between those two, the misunderstandings... and somehow they still end up on the same page somehow, even if they draw the wrong conclusions. The case is excellent as well. There's humour... omg. In short, this is a must-read in this fandom.

    Summary

    Mysterious city of sin and intrigue! Sherlock and John meet again in Casablanca.

    ‘He plays that bloody song all the time,’ John said with a half-choked laugh, pulling a pack of cigarettes out of the inside pocket of his jacket. He extracted two and lit the both of them, handing one to Sherlock without looking at him.

    Crossover with Casablanca (1942).
