    Bookmarker's Notes

    This pairing popped up out of nowhere for me after binge-re-watching three seasons of Sherlock in under a week, before ending it with the last. It's an underrated pairing and I haven't found many stories that work for me personally, but this one really does it for me. Lovely interactions and dialogue, well-rounded characters all around, and the plot (case-fic) is quite lovely, with a nice slow-burn to top it off.

    It starts post Reichenbach. John and Greg are flat-mates and (kinda) working together, with Greg now working as a private detective (I think he lost his job, not sure though).

    Feeling some POTC nostalgia, and this recaptured my attention. I remember this story very fondly.

    I read this when it was first written, more than a decade ago. I have not been around that fandom for many many years, but I think this story still holds up to this day, and it - to quote the author herself - captures those early days, that time when the PoTC fandom was genuinely the best place on the internet <3

    Summary

    Snape swooped around the room like a giant bat, adding ingredients to some cauldrons and stirring others. Then he stopped and tapped his wand against the benchtop impatiently. "Well? What is so important that I must risk a vital brew of Animaserum by having you in the room with it?"

    His tongue was so dry, he didn't know how he would ever get the words out. "Heartsease, Professor." There, that wasn't so hard. He took a deep breath. Dementors were worse, surely.
