    Summary

    When Sherlock wakes the morning after Lestrade & Molly's wedding reception, hangover isn't the only thing he has to deal with. He's in bed with John and he doesn't mind it. But how is that possible? What happened to him? Whatever it is, he likes it. Realising he wants John in every way, Sherlock suggests starting a relationship, and though John's amenable to give it a try, he insists on taking things slow, refraining from physical intimacy until they both are sure of their feelings.

    This story follows their bumpy ride, the ups and downs, the inside battles, exploring their deepest fears and desires before becoming a real couple. Slow burn with lots of angst and some lighter, fluffy scenes to ease the tension.

    Summary

    Sherlock is recovering from the Culverton Smith case. But there are some things that time or body can't heal. When John and Rosie unexpectedly move back in 221B the day after Sherlock's birthday, nothing is as it used to be. Both he and John are treading on thin ice. It is only a matter of time until the first cracks appear. Until they begin to sink into the freezing waters of the ocean beneath, and are forced to face their demons, each other, and what has been lurking in the dark for far, far too long. Until it is only them, the promise of sky above the surface, and the limitless ocean flooding into their hearts.

    ----

    This is a story of finding what was deemed to be forever lost. Of hope, strength, togetherness, and the long journey to recovery.

    Summary

    This is the story of a young consulting detective who wants nothing to do with marriage and an army doctor who wants to find true love. It's 2020 post-Brexit England and the British government is encouraging arranged marriages. Candidates meet through state-run agencies and date in hopes of finding love (and tax benefits). Sherlock doesn't need or want a spouse, at least not until John Watson shows up. Hesitant to give in to his more carnal urges because of the way they derail his mind, how will Sherlock progress toward the more intimate aspects of a relationship? The answer lies in a very special wedding gift.

    Summary

    A strange little BBC Sherlock fanfiction that popped into my head when I found the following prompt: "He dropped to one knee and began snapping photographs. He didn't want to miss anything. Most everyone was running away from the explosion but others were..." And this is where it took me. Crossovers with some familiar franchises, cameos by some equally familiar and loved characters. I can't help myself. I'm sorry. No I'm not.

    EDIT: Story is now complete! Probably won't have a sequel to this one, seeing where I ended it.

    Summary

    A classic case of 'be careful what you wish for', as Dr John Watson continues with life after losing Sherlock. That's all he can do. It's not enough for someone who misses the thrill of the battlefield - both in and out of London.

    That is until he's once again drawn back into similar mystifying territory, only this time he finds himself at the center of the newest case. Followed by a mysterious figure, rumours of Sherlock's survival and now working for Mycroft, John realises his past isn't truly behind him - someone wants to get his attention, and they'll do it by any means necessary.

    Summary

    John lived his life with his feet firmly on the ground and a strong fear of flying. After an accident on the battlefield sends him home with a wound and a dragon, his new flatmate Sherlock takes it upon himself to cure John's fears and show him that flying as a dragon rider can be just as exhilarating as running on the battlefields, especially when there are murders to be solved and a killer is lurking in London Aerie.

    Summary

    What is life like in Baker street when the cameras are off... when their true feelings can be shared?

    The sum of their secrets, or a life in 221 words, is the sum of all the parts of my 221b Secrets series in chronological order. All fitting within canon in my humble opinion.
