    Summary

    Hwaet! I sing of those immortal heroes: The Tall Detective and The Shorter Man.

    Now tall Sherlock, called the genius,       sees the parsley in the butter,
    cries Oh! and soon declares the answer.       He knows the killer, has deduced it;
    and John Watson, called the doctor,       whose gun is sure, whose hands are steady,
    cries to him in admiration,       hails him Brilliant and Fantastic.

    Summary

    In a different time, a more naive time, Sherlock thought he was the star and John the satellite, circling him in worshipful orbit. He knows now that was never true. John was always the sun, bright and fierce, and Sherlock was the pale, cold moon, his only heat coming from the light he reflected.

    And then his sun went into supernova. Moriarty said he would burn him and he has, and John is the fire, his rage and grief incinerating Sherlock, burning the heart out of him in the end, turning him into nothing but cinder and ash. And now the supernova is collapsing, a black hole born where there was once warmth and heat and love, and Sherlock is being pulled down, down past the event horizon, into the endless frozen void where nothing can ever escape.

    Really unbelievably good. And sad. And painful.

    Summary

    It starts with five words.

    “Is my father really dead?”

    Or maybe, that’s how it ends.

    This is really charming, with a great plot twist that I totally failed to see coming. Molly is particularly great.

    Summary

    The mother was apparently poisoned, the son seems to have killed himself playing Russian roulette. It's a murder and a suicide. Or is it a suicide and a murder?

    At least the case is distracting John from the fact that sex with Sherlock was probably a mistake right from the start.

    John will learn to cope, one way or another.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    So, normally I'm not a fan of "Big Misunderstanding" stories -- you know, that done-to-death romance trope where, if the protagonists would just have one truthful 5-minute conversation ("I'm angry because when I came by your flat, you were hugging that guy." "But that was my younger brother who just got back from Antarctica!"), there would be no plot. And this is kinda-sorta that. But you know how they say that in sufficiently skilled hands, anything can be brilliant? Yeah, this is totally that.
