    Summary

    We lie there so long, I feel myself starting to drift off. The pleasant dizziness starts to claim me and it's becoming harder and harder to keep my eyes open. I'm woken only by the sound of his voice filling the silence.

    "Don't get married."

    The sentence is so soft I almost don't hear him. I glance over, unsure as to what to say next. He keeps his eyes fixed on the ceiling, avoiding meeting my gaze.

    "What?" I say because I can't think of anything else. How do you reply to that kind of statement?

    Summary

    When Sherlock leaves the envelope for John and Mary at their wedding, he forgets to take out another piece of paper from it - the paper on which he poured his heart out while preparing the Best Man's Speech at 221B Baker Street.

    He intended to burn the piece right after he finished writing, but he was too exhausted from the emotions and accidentally slipped it amongst his composition for the Waltz.

    As things work out, somebody reads his letter. That somebody is John Watson.

    Summary

    John wakes up in a hospital and Harry is there to help him.

    Monday Fix-its is a series of one-shots (or two-parters) that take a piece of cannon BBC Sherlock and fix it so that JohnLock would happen. It won't necessarily happen IN the story, but it is the aim or each of these stories. HEA for our boys is the priority.

    Summary

    A week after John and Mary get married, they leave for their honeymoon in Nice, on the south coast of France. Lestrade and Mycroft work together to find a case to distract a lonely and depressed Sherlock. A little oversight sends Sherlock away from Baker Street for this case... to the same French city. Realising there's nothing to be done but watch it play out, Lestrade and Mycroft settle in with popcorn to watch thing unfold through surveillance reports.
    Somewhere along the line, John realises his marriage may, possibly, have been a mistake.

    Summary

    A silly, alcohol-fuelled conversation about pillow talk in all its forms turns into something more significant, and John finds out a few surprising things about himself and his best friend. Sherlock takes what he can get.

    In other words, a lot of porn and a little plot. Or: How I wish John's stag night had ended.

    (Inspired by Martin Freeman's face in the sticky note scene, which is very obviously in love with Sherlock, regardless of what John Watson thinks.)

    Summary

    I'm currently experimenting with different styles and POVs, so here are some ficlets of various lengths and ratings.

    WARNING: There's some angst in here and also some Major Character Death. Needed to get it out of my system. But there's also fluff and even some Parentlock.

    I hope you'll enjoy!

    ETA:
    I've updated the date for this, because I still haven't learned to remember that drafts do not update their date automatically :/. Sorry if this popped up in your notifications etc. twice!

    Summary

    The title of this story is inspired by the song with the same name by Florence and the Machine.
    Sherlock walks away from the reception, but John isn't having it. He pushes it until it breaks, which forces Sherlock to admit a few things and John to react to that.
    This was supposed to be a short, angsty piece, but suddenly there was a lot of sex (Sherlock surprised me a bit here, but well), and then Mary and Sholto demanded to play a part, and it all got out of hand. There's no system or structure to this - it's just fragments of a night that changed some lives. I hope you'll like it anyway!

    Summary

    When Sherlock dies, John Watson feels like his life is over too. He’s completely shut down, until Mark Morstan, a new nurse at John’s medical clinic, catches his attention, and helps him uncover the long buried truth of his attraction to men.

    Although he’s certain he’ll never get over Sherlock, John plans to move on, and build a new life with Mark, unaware that Sherlock is not quite as dead as he appears, and that Mark is hiding secrets of his own.

    Based on this Tumblr post by @i-love-the-beekeeper (formerly @welovethebeekeeper).

    Summary

    John saw him go.
    Saw his tall, dark form slink behind the crowds of people, letting himself out into the chill of the night. That was when he felt his throat tighten. Felt his heart break. For the first time, in a long time, John’s hands shook.
