    Summary

    When Mycroft “abducts” John, it’s a smooth, practised operation. Has he done this before? This is an imagining of how that might have happened.

    Written during the gap between Series 1 and Series 2, also during the fad for stories in the pattern of "five times x happened and one time y happened instead."

    This is a repost and an update because I managed to delete the whole flipping thing in a moment of complete gormlessness. Apologies to everyone who read it the first time and added kudos.

    Summary

    Sherlock has never had a friend before. He didn't even know he wanted one until John moved into 221B. But John quickly becomes essential to him, and their friendship turns more and more intimate.

    It's all platonic, of course. All perfectly normal for close friends.

    Summary

    “Come here,” Sherlock said and when he did, he put his arm across John’s shoulder, and pulled him close. John let him, and after a moment, rested his head against Sherlock’s chest. Sherlock felt the familiar ache, a longing for what might have been. If only he’d been braver, more sure of John’s feelings. He dropped his arms and stepped back. It was too late. Things were as they were meant to be.

    But it was autumn in Sussex, and everything was changing.
     
    If you were given a chance to go back to the beginning and make things right, would you take it?
