    Summary

    Sometimes, one makes an imprudent decision born of a devastating combination of drink and sentiment. Sometimes, the consequences of that decision take on a life of their own. And sometimes, the facing of those consequences shapes every aspect of one's life--from the hugely meaningful down to the seemingly insignificant.

    Summary

    He thinks about going to Sherlock, wrapping his arms around his slim body, holding him and comforting him in his terrible sorrow. But the distance between them feels like an ocean, like the expanse of the cold Atlantic between here and London, and he has no idea how to cross that vast chasm, or even if Sherlock wants him to.

    They are here together, the two of them against the world a thousand miles from home--but John suddenly sees that in a profound way, each locked inside their private grief, they’ve never been more alone.

    Summary

    John smiles, something small and private and for him alone, and Sherlock just...he knows. With a heart-stopping certainty, Sherlock suddenly knows.

    It feels like falling off the edge of a cliff. It feels like falling off the edge of the world.

    It feels like flying.
