    Summary

    The first letter John writes home from Afghanistan is meant to go to a woman he went on only one date with. How it ends up in Sherlock's hands is completely innocent. What happens next is not.

    What do you do when you find out the person you're in love with has been lying about something as monumental as who they are?

    What do you do when you're the one who lied?

    How on earth do you put the pieces back together?

    Summary

    “You’ll let me see it, of course.”

    It takes John no time at all to realize what is being asked, to stiffen with indignation, but he asks, “See what?” nonetheless.

    The look those grey-green eyes level at him says please don’t actually be that stupid far more eloquently than should be possible. “You are loup garou, recently infected under traumatic circumstances and subsequently discharged from military service, most likely from a post in Afghanistan or Iraq. Your wounds would have healed with the passing of the initial fever, so whatever lingering effects you are suffering are likely psychosomatic – and severe enough to bar you from the one occupation where being a ruthless hunter is seen as a qualification rather than a detriment.” Those eyes flick back up from their cataloguing of John’s limbs and body to meet his eyes. “When I say you’ll let me see it, I am then, of course, referring to your wolf form.”

    “And why would I do that?”

    “Potential flatmates should know the worst about one another.”

    Summary

    “You know,” John said thoughtfully, “you’re not really convincing me that it isn’t the murder that gets you going.”

    As far as Sherlock can tell, Sherlock and John are friends. With benefits. There's no way that could get complicated.

    Summary

    Written for a Tumblr prompt by grumpybijohn: "Imagine john and sherlock going to a gay bar for a case and the bartender/manager recognizes sherlock and is all like, 'Sherlock!! I haven’t seen you in years! How are you? Is this your boyfriend?'”

    Or, what happens when denial finally gets too hard to maintain.
