    Summary

    “You pace too much.” Nancy didn’t even look up when she spoke. Steve didn’t stop pacing, just smoothed his hair back and flipped through the cards.
    “I don’t mind,” Jonathan said, looking up at his girlfriend with a coy smile. “I think it’s kinda cute when he paces.”

    Steve realizes he likes guys, and Nancy and Jonathan react differently than he had expected.

    Summary

    Steve hasn’t been back to his family’s cottage for years, ever since the car accident took both his parents and his childhood memories. His therapist seems to think it’s a good idea for him to get out of the city for a while, so Steve decides it's time to fix it up. He remembers a lot of things when he’s finally arrives, smells the fresh grass, hears the whisper of the trees, and the familiar warmth of a home away from home. The river outside is familiar too, only Steve can’t quite remember the imaginary friend he invented from it, when he needed one the most.

    The river remembers him though, and will be damned if it watches his old friend sulk in loneliness instead of play with him, like he used to.

    Summary

    Undercover after Reichenbach, tracking the snipers who threatened his friends, Sherlock has one thing left he can depend on: his mind. But when he faces making his first kill, alone among the mad excesses of Las Vegas, the pressure turns out to be greater than even he can endure without John beside him.

    Summary

    The Wise Man teaches him sometimes if he catches Steve puttering around the woods: how to read the trees and the moss, when to listen to the birds and when it’s better to leave their advice untaken. He teaches Steve about the bears and why you’re never supposed to call them by their real name; tells him grittier and truer stories about the woodsfolk than the old ladies in the village.

    “Bear no ill will for the woodsfolk,” the Wise Man tells him. “Washer hags will tell you to never drink from a forest-dweller’s cup, but if you’ve always treated Tapio’s court with respect, they will remember it.” He watches Steve with a critical eye; an old man with his long beard and ragged clothes, bird bones and animal teeth in his pockets. Then he pokes Steve’s chest with one bony finger. “You carry the woods with you, son,” he says. “Don’t fear them. Let them invite you in, when they’re ready.”
