    Brilliantly written story of our heroes chasing a pterodactyl across land and sea and the many fascinating ways in which they almost kill themselves while doing so.

    Summary

    Written for Merlinlefay, who won me in the FuckYeahJohnLockFanfic 10,000 Followers Giveaway. Her prompt was: "I’ve been listening to Christmas songs a lot lately and Wham’s “Last Christmas” comes to mind. I’m a sucker for angst, but I’d appreciate a happy ending, if possible!” Well, it may not be as angsty as you like, but trust me, I nailed the happy ending. Merry Christmas!

    That Earth-shaking revelation, then, leads to a problem, and one that Sherlock realizes should be solved quickly, before John’s dates turn into girlfriends or boyfriends, because sometimes girlfriends or boyfriends can turn into wives or husbands while your back is turned. Every time John hums happily at the mirror as he shaves, splashes on a little gift cologne Mrs. Hudson bought him for Christmas, Sherlock is drawn back to that night by the fire, and the way John’s touch had made the world stand still.

    This is beyond gorgeous. And painful. And stunning. It broke my heart just a little bit, and I wanted to shake Watson and yell in his face, but it seems that he did that himself, and ended up in the right place at the end, after all. Swissmiss has a way with a Victorian turn of phrase, and a way of telling a story that holds no punches. I am indebted.

    Summary

    The next day, they very distinctly did not mention it. Sherlock was almost entirely certain that all he felt about that was relief.

    For a genius, Sherlock sure has trouble figuring out his best friend.

    Delightful! Excellent dialogue, both of them in character as they navigate misunderstood feelings and doubts, funny and sexy and Rosie is a sweetheart! Even Mycroft is perfect!

    Summary

    “Everything you say is important to me.” A wave of warmth seeps through me and I repress it with an equal blast of ice. I must be above such things now John has left me. Left Baker Street, I mean.

    Silvergirl told me to read this, so I did, and I'm very glad. This is a beautiful piece, so well crafted, filled with gorgeous lines and heartbreaking moments. Sherlock's grief is palatable, a heavy, tender, bittersweet stone, and I love that the author allowed John to be cognizant of it and the situation. In so many fics he simply doesn't know.
