This story started out as a one-off. Chapter 1 (Epiphany) is unaltered and can still be read that way.
John discovers it's Sherlock's birthday whilst Sherlock makes a series of disturbing discoveries of his own, leading them to embark upon a relationship that was never going to be easy.
Please note that I have chosen not to use any warnings. The story may contain triggers.
