    DK. Cute, not very angsty. After Reichenbach, Sherlock has been sent by Mycroft to NY, but has little work to do, gets thrown out of succession of fine hotels for aggravating the staff. Irene messages him and buys him lunch, then leaves him alone. Sherlock goes out clubbing, goes home with young stockbroker to get fucked hard. He re-reads old texts from John and barges into a therapist's office demanding advice on how to make his feelings go away.

    After New Year's, John surprises him by finding him at his latest hotel. John had quietly deduced that Sherlock had not died in the fall - Molly's suspicious behavior about the autopsy - and then traced Sherlock by persistent phone calls to various hotels, pretending to be Mycroft's assistant sorting out bills.

    When they go up to his room, John tells him something Sherlock doesn't believe, then asks him if he could ever feel ... love. Positive, Sherlock answers, it's the only possibility. John aggressively moves them to bed; they have great sex.

    After, they sneak away from Mycroft's texts together, ready for some new adventure, with expectation of no faked-death stunts ever again.

    DK. Perfect reading of a first-time lovers story, a languid evening where warm gazes over hot toddies and takeout lead both John and Sherlock to realize they're going to bed together. Then what happens all sounds yummy.

    Summary

    Coming home drunk to Sherlock Holmes was not, nor ever would be, a wise decision. Certain things, he would simply have to teach John the hard way.

    DK. Funny but not completely light-hearted story about Sherlock pranking John after he comes home from pub Mike Stamford's stag night. John is slurring and giggling affectionate drunk, while Sherlock wants to avoid any emotional entanglement. When John falls asleep against Sherlock on the sofa, Sherlock leaves him a glass of water, and a bucket just in case, but also unzips John's trousers, hoping John will be mortified in the morning.

    Sherlock completes the effect by telling hung-over John that they don't have to talk about it, that John already apologized last night ... it takes hours before John realizes that nothing shameful had really happened. Sherlock's devious smile brings out an answering smile from John.

    K1. Sonnet captures all the heat about John which Sherlock seeks to dispel in the quarry pond.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    DK. Pretty romance initiated by Sherlock when he realizes he is in love with John, the first and only man he'll ever desire. He's prepared to risk losing his friendship to move beyond the platonic, and he's about 89% certain his affections will be returned.

    Sherlock asks Mycroft for a bit of help; Mycroft's contribution is the rental of a comfortable beach house on a warm stretch of private beach.

    Their first evening there, Sherlock blindfolds John and walks him inland, at first too excited to be as careful as he should be with John's footing -- which gives John a tingle of anticipation about what could be so important to Sherlock. Sherlock confesses he's afraid to show John, but John reassures him that nothing would drive him away. When he lifts his blindfold, the scene is a dreamy wonderland of lanterns hanging in every tree around a moonlit little lake. There's a picnic blanket and a bottle of wine waiting.

    Sherlock has never been so vulnerable. He takes John's hands and lets out the deluge of words he's been holding back: that he's loved John since the first moment at Bart's, and he'll spend his life trying to be worthy of John. Wordlessly, John reaches for Sherlock and kisses him.

    John tells him that he loves Sherlock, too. No more need to hide. They have a warm future to look forward to.
