    Summary

    He was the only person who ever left her whose abandonment she'd truly earned, and he was the only one who kept coming back.

    Events went differently in Season 6, after "Gone", and Buffy and her friends try to get back to what passes for normal on the Hellmouth. But wouldn't you know, as soon as they beat back one interdimensional baddie, the portents of yet another "dark power rising" start to appear. Unfortunately, Willow has seen that this time the demon threat will succeed in wiping Sunnydale off the map — especially if it can recruit the Slayer of Slayers to its side — and that's the best case scenario. This permanent WIP is intended as an alternate season of Buffy.

    Note from the poster: This story is entirely by Anna S. (eliade), who has generously allowed me to post her fic to AO3. It is a classic of Buffy fanfic, unfinished and likely to remain so. It has only been available via Wayback Machine for the last several years, and deserves a wider readership. A readership which will soon discover a rich and compelling tale by a master of dialog, characterization, and plotting.

    Summary

    Sherlock brings John and Mary along with him on a case in Florence, but he has an ulterior motive: to reunite with Irene and explore intimacy on every level. But Sherlock and Irene quickly realise they have to face the reality of old wounds alongside the fantasies of their new relationship. And as the deceptions escalate, John fears his friend may be falling into another dangerous trap. And this time, it might be up to John to do the saving.

    Part romance, part bromace, all angst. A sequel to my stories 'The Sign of the Four' and 'What He Likes', but can be read alone. I've written a lot of the story already and will try to update twice a week.
