    Summary

    John Watson is a rare and extraordinarily Gifted protector who could have gotten all manner of high-paying jobs in the highest echelons of government. When he unwittingly saves half of the British powers-that-be while on MI5 duty, everyone predicted that he would either accept the many generous offers that were flung his way or use his influence to further his own career.

    But then again, whoever said that John Watson was predictable?

    Summary

    “Gina’s mum says that sometimes a soulmate isn’t like a boyfriend or girlfriend. You don’t got to live with him or anything.”

    “Yeah...”

    “Could be a friend. A posh best friend!” Harry’s smile was missing two teeth these days.

    John had nine and half years to Harry’s eight, and that made him just a bit wiser. Just enough to know what people meant when they said those sorts of things. 'Well, her soulname is a woman’s, you understand, but she’s dating a fellow, right and proper. The soulmate’s just a friend. Best friend. You know the type.' John knew the type. He had a teacher at school with another man’s name on his hand.

    John read the letters aloud, pointing to each for Harry as he went:

    “S H E R L O C K.”

    ***

    John Watson has grown up with a rich man’s name on his hand. Sherlock Holmes has a name so common, it’s practically useless. Follow their lives—step by step—as they both discover how hard Destiny will work to draw true soulmates together.

    This story is now complete!

    Summary

    The only vampire working with the military police, Sherlock is sent to investgate a mysterious death in a regiment in Afghanistan.

    Summary

    "An annoying fly had come in at some point, and it now perched itself on Sherlock's forehead, its wings caught in the man's dark bangs. In a second, it flew away to buzz around the room.

    John's eyes followed it for a second before turning his attention back to his flatmate. His long curls were ruffled over his forehead now, reaching closer towards his eyebrows.

    And it was long. It had grown more and more towards the man's lean shoulders over time, but Sherlock didn't seem to care. He was never one to dote on his appearance, except when he had to look a certain way for a case.

    John stared at Sherlock, eyebrows raised, with his palm over his mouth as he rested his chin on his wrist.

    Sherlock needed a haircut."

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

    When John was in the army, he was paid as a barber to cut hair for his fellow soldiers.

    Time passes, and one day, Sherlock is in his mind palace, and John sees that his hair has grown quite long. To cure his boredom, John decides to give the man that he's been pining after a trim.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    “You’re on holiday,” the man repeated, scepticism clear in his expression and voice.

    “Yes,” Sherlock said. Really, why was that so hard to understand?

    “This is a war zone!” he shouted in exasperation.

    Well, yes, there was that.

    Summary

    “How does it feel to be in love?”

    The question, spoken in what sounded like a genuinely puzzled tone, made John look up from the book he was reading. He was used to most of Sherlock’s quirks by now and starting unexpected conversations involving odd topics was one of them. Still, the question had caught him off-guard.

    * * *

    Sherlock thinks he's in love... but he's not sure. He does his best to figure it out. John is sweet but frustratingly oblivious. Some questions are asked and some answered. Some things are explained while some are left, well, unsolved. All that matters in the end is that something beautiful is discovered.

    Summary

    Written mostly at a flash-writing session at 221B Con, using the randomly-drawn prompts: Baking together (trope), John’s surgery (location), and Greg Lestrade & James Sholto (characters).

    Because I love angst, this starts out fluffy and turns sad very quickly.

    Summary

    A sundry collection of short holiday fics prompted by missdaviswrites. There's a bit of everything here, and the next several works I'll be posting will pull out individual storylines and consolidate them into single-post stories to make searching easier. Such is the danger of aggressive multishipping :)
