    Summary

    "Three years, Sherlock!" John yells down at him; looms over the disgraced detective. "Three fucking years." His voice is loud; too loud. It echoes and ricochets inside Sherlock's aching head. "Three years, I thought you were dead—three years I wished I was dead. And you let me believe it, Sherlock. You let me think—you fed me a lie, and I swallowed it right down, didn't I? Always the follower; always letting you tug me along, string me along." He falls silent; shaking, vibrating with anger, with hurt; with betrayal. His hands clench at his sides, and he looks as if he would like nothing more than to treat the detective to another right hook.

    ---------------

    I originally posted this story on here back in 2011 and had written 9 chapters. I have since edited, updated and resumed the story, so I deleted the old one.

    After Sherlock's suicide, John is left to pick up the pieces of his life. He marries, he works, and he never fully recovers. 3 years later, Sherlock reappears.

    I started writing this before season 3 aired so it's a bit of a different storyline than the show.

    Check the end of each chapter for a hashtag, mostly meant as humour to help balance out the angst.

    Summary

    So basically, John wakes up from serious head trauma (and other things) after being held captive and placed under experiments by Moriarty. This story takes place before the pool scene but Moriarty has captured John a little early and kept him for almost a week and was about to use him for the pool scene when Sherlock saves him. (And yes John is turned into a child hehe)

    Summary

    After all their wars have been fought and the criminal masterminds defeated John and Sherlock are only left with their own demons and ghosts to defeat. Can they at last find their peace, and each other, without the war?

    Since Sherlock demonstrated a superior ability to discipline his physical self; choosing to eat or sleep only when it did not conflict with intellectual pursuits, John had every reason to conclude that Sherlock did the same with his emotional self; not feeling anything more nor less for John than he wanted to feel and only at such times as it was convenient to do so. Sherlock might love John, but it appeared he would never be in love with John. It was not consuming. Sherlock was not at its mercy. John believed that Sherlock only loved him as a matter of practicality and that when it became impractical to love John, then Sherlock could simply turn it off; box it away or maybe delete it like a corrupted file.

    However, in that moment when he pulled the trigger and Sherlock’s facade shattered before his eyes, John saw the truth.

    A collaborative fic.
