    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.

    Summary

    “No bother.” Martin shrugged his shoulders, aiming for a casual attitude. “And I didn’t want to assume… I mean, I can catch a bus from the end of your road - it’s not that late. I mean… Am I?”

    “Are you what? No, wait, don’t answer that, that’s too many options for when I’m this tired.” Douglas climbed out of the car and slammed the door behind him. He looked drawn and weary, but not actively annoyed. “Look, Martin, what I’m realistically offering right now is a microwaved curry and a place to lie down before you fall down..."

    Summary

    Martin bit his lip, and couldn’t hold back his smile. “I know what you mean, I do. I just don’t… This doesn’t exactly happen to me often. I don’t know the protocol.”

    “Believe it or not, Martin, there isn’t actually an SOP – updated or otherwise – for getting stuck in a foreign country due to a volcanic ash cloud, having to impersonate a married couple with your fellow pilot and then accidentally snogging them whilst watching Julie Andrews play the guitar.”
