    This happened. Sorry/not sorry.

    Summary

    "For a second, I allow myself to remember teaching John how to waltz. There is a special room in my mind palace for it. A big one, with a proper parquet dance floor. For a second, I go there. I remember holding him, closer than the World Dance Council asks for, excusing it with the fact that we are training for a wedding, not for a competition. For a second, I feel his hand on mine again, smell his sweat, hear the song we used. For a second, I allow myself to love him deeply. For a second, only a second, that love reflects on my face."

    Fix-it for S3, starting at the end of TSoT. Written from Sherlock's POV.

    If you like to see Mary as one of the good guys, you might want to stop reading right here.

    Summary

    John, wounded and silent, drifts back to Baker Street for healing...and then goes home again. He visits, gets more upbeat, chattier, smiles, jokes... and still goes home again. Sherlock wants him to move back in - it just makes sense - but John shows no signs of doing so.

    This is the story of how John and Sherlock learn to say what needs to be said when they're both so very, very rubbish at talking.

    My heart can't take this

    It's John who needs help finally

    Nobody's being a dick

    Still a slowburn

    But what a beautiful slow burn

    one of the best characterisation I've read

    FINALLY, a realistic way to perceive love. Hard, painful, yet real, forgiving and lasting.
    So brilliantly in character!
    Oh, how my heart hurts.

    Summary

    They were still in the middle of the room. Still close. Sherlock's hand was still on John's neck. Still lingering. Still warm on John's skin.

    God, was he afraid.

    He was still afraid that John would break free from the embrace, put on that hateful mask of half hearted indifference and bravery and leave the air around Sherlock cold like before. His cheek touched by the harsh, cold air around him instead of the soft grey of John's hair. His lungs empty of his smell.

    His arms empty and useless.

    Had it only been a moment?
