    Summary

    John takes the plunge and finally kisses Sherlock, and Sherlock kisses back. It should be the start of a wonderful romance, but Sherlock's past with Victor Trevor prevents him from believing that John's feelings for him are real. But, he goes along with it, believing John has an entirely different motive for his affection. Will the two of them ever realise the truth, get over their pasts, and accept the love they deserve?

    Summary

    Barely five months after Sherlock's death, John was slowly yet so ever damn surely falling apart. Every day since then, he had just been surviving not living. When Lestrade phone him, with nervousness and uncertainty in his voice, asking for some help with a case since Anderson who usually did the forensic stuff, and another worker who examined the body had been unfortunately unavailable and with the downfall of Lestrade's record recently, he couldn't afford to risk another scolding from his supervisor, John agreed, despite the forming of the painful twist in his stomach at the thought of being at a crime scene without a certain arrogant high-functioning sociopath. Never did he expect to encounter such a surreal event and never did he expect to find out Sherlock having a secret - well secret would be unfitting as the man himself didn't realize this

    Summary

    A shock of black curls stood strikingly against pale skin; a contrast so severe John had the sudden urge to photograph it. Long eyelashes sat delicately on his high cheekbones and his lips were parted ever so slightly as he slept. John's eyes drifted further down from the slight collarbone sticking out from his shirt to his long fingers resting beside his head on the couch. They were the hands of a violinist, John thought absentmindedly. Long, pale and slightly crooked fingers with slight callouses along the pad of his fingertips. Even at his worst Sherlock still looked like he belonged in a Renaissance painting, all sharp edges and contrasts. Sometimes he looked more art than man.

    John and Sherlock take on a new case in Grimsby involving a murder mystery in a small town. Greg reluctantly follows.

    Summary

    “The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes.”

    A slow burn exploration of human sexuality, gender identity, and the intricacies of emotion. This is a story in which John and Sherlock have been living and solving crimes together for two years. Think of the vibes in "A Study in Pink/Scarlett." Two people, becoming more comfortable with one another over the years. Nothing too intense, nothing too complex, nothing too dangerous. This work focuses more on the domesticity of their lives as flatmates and how they navigate their tentative friendship.

    I was fascinated by the concept of Sherlock flat out not understanding sexuality and gender identity. Like a heliocentric universe, these topics have historically been of no use and thus disposable. Until now, especially with a super strain of STIs plaguing London and a sexually frustrated flatmate.

    Note: This is all for fun. Not trying to craft anything too spectacular; just playing around with concepts and a relationship I love to love.

    Summary

    John laughed then—and yet Sherlock had never heard someone sound so terrified. “I just don’t know how I’m going to do this alone.”

    His voice had wavered when he said it, a dewiness to his eyes that he was trying to blink away. It made Sherlock’s heart split open. He would’ve given anything to take his pain from him; he would’ve gladly brought it into himself if it meant John didn’t have to bear it anymore.

    “Then don’t do it alone,” Sherlock said softly, barely more than a whisper, an urgency in his voice he couldn’t control. He just couldn’t stand to see him like this. “Come back, John. We can do this together.”

    And he meant it, God, he meant it. He would take care of them. And he would do it right this time.

    Summary

    John Watson’s eyes were the same colour as the evidence he revealed, evidence which showed that the case was more than just a robbery gone wrong. It was now Sherlock’s favourite colour.

    Summary

    Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome!
    Fremde, étranger, stranger--

    There was a cabaret, and there was a master of ceremonies... and there was a city called Berlin, in a country called Germany...and it was the end of the world, and I was dancing with Sherlock Holmes, and we were both fast asleep.

    So begins John H. Watson's Great Work. It is the story of two men who meet just before the tide of war and fascism sweeps across Europe and the world. Circumstances will separate them, but the arc of history is long and bends towards love.

    Summary

    Un bacio è stato in grado di fermare la mia mente.
    Un bacio da John Watson è riuscito a compiere questa impresa.
    Non sono un codardo, ma anche il grande Sherlock Holmes non è sempre in grado di essere indifferente alle parole che vengono dette. Specialmente se la fonte è John.
    Allontanarsi velocemente dopo il bacio ma prima di sentire per l'ennesima volta come John non è minimamente gay è stata un'azione semplicemente logica.

    Sperare di evitare la richiesta di chiarimenti, quella forse era un'aspettativa irrealistica.

    Summary

    It had been another hot summer day in this tiny, in-the-middle-of-nowhere village in a far-flung corner of England and John and Sherlock had had quite enough of this wild goose chase of a case they were on.
