    Summary

    Written for this promt on the kinkmeme: "After Mary's death, John moves back into Baker Street, but is still upset at the loss of his wife and child. Eventually, he and Sherlock stumble into a sort of relationship, but it's more physical than anything and they don't talk about it.

    They especially don't talk during sex.

    If they are going to have sex, Sherlock notices the signs hours beforehand, and he prepares carefully. The lights are off, they're under the covers, he prepares himself using lots of lube so he can make it feel as much like a woman as he can, and he doesn't let himself make any noise so that, if John wishes, he can pretend that he's still with Mary."

    Summary

    History remembers Washington as an exceptionally calm and composed man, a true leader to inspire and unite his people. They worked hard to preserve that image, obscuring stories of his moodier youth. And though few ever knew, no one worked harder than Hamilton. For when Washington's volatile temper flared, it was Hamilton who bore his wrath willingly.

    Summary

    "Oh," said Iskierka, who had been pretending not to listen, "it is very stupid; it is only that humans are not supposed to mate if they are not giving each other eggs, and of course Granby cannot give Tharkay one." (post-Victory of Eagles)

    Summary

    The rush of air and the pull of the harness has him gasping, despite himself; energy is thrumming under his skin, with a small edge of instinctive fear that quickens his heart and makes every breath feel glorious. He hasn't felt so alive in weeks. Which is, in a way, part of the problem.
