    Summary

    Being in love with your best friend can make you do very stupid things. For example, you could potentially ask them to take your virginity so the arsehole who has made your life hell for four years stops teasing you about it.

    At least, that's what Sherlock does.

    Sweet and very emotional. Young, virgin Sherlock right before Valentine's Day, teased for 'no one wanting him'. His best friend offers a solution.

    Summary

    Nights were impossible. The stillness of the flat and his own inner turmoil.

    Again, as he'd done for the past three nights, Sherlock stood at the door, one hand on the wooden frame. Listening. In terror. In shame.

    Summary

    It’s possibly the desperation that’s seeped into his voice despite his best intentions, or perhaps it’s just a mother’s intuition, but she knows that whatever he’s calling about is Serious, hangover be damned. “What’s happened?” she asks, tone soft and as comforting as a hot cup of tea on a cold winter’s night.
     
    “Mummy,” he begins, voice catching. “I think John may be moving out.”

    Summary

    Which leaves John here: looking for an excuse to do something nice, to do something special, something that will lift their spirits, and realising suddenly that he and Sherlock have lived together for nearly a year and they’ve never celebrated Sherlock’s birthday. John doesn’t even know when it is.

    *

    John Watson doesn’t know a lot of things, but he’s not about to let that stop him from doing what was important. And in this case, what’s important is celebrating Sherlock’s birthday--whether it’s the right day or not.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A reimagining of series 1-4. Not a long story but richly textured and surprising and heartfelt.
