    Summary

    What if Sherlock had told John about "Lazarus"?

    This was inspired by the song "I See Fire" by Ed Sheeran. The atmosphere of looming danger expressed in it got me thinking. What if Sherlock and Mycroft hadn't been alone in preparing for the most momentous day of Sherlock's and John's lives? What if John had known about the plan, too? What if being faced with limited time left to be spent together had led them to rethink their relationship? What if John had said all the things he wanted to say then? And how would they have coped with being apart for two years?

    (Disclaimer: This includes parts of the original script.)

    I hope you'll like how this turned out.

    Summary

    Sherlock and John are stranded in the middle of nowhere after a case goes wrong. Both are gravely injured, but Sherlock hides the extent of his injuries. He swallows down the pain, and pushes past the severe bleeding of his head wound, putting John's welfare ahead of his own. This leads to dire consequences.

    This is part 2 of 'The Pilot Universe' series. Warnings : Contains graphic medical descriptions and heavy angst. Oh, and John swears, because I see him as the type of person to swear in these kind of situations.

    Summary

    A collection of “Sherlock” ficlets which I originally posted on Livejournal and FF.net but which I’ve not posted to AO3 before. With the gradual move away from LJ and even though I migrated all my fic (and transcripts etc) to Dreamwidth, I figured I should add all these little’uns to my collection here. I’m still rather fond of them despite their age!

    Each chapter is a stand-alone story. Some, but not all, are 221Bs (221 words long, with the final word starting with a ‘b’). They were written during 2011 and 2012 and so are Season 1 or Season 1/Season 2 compliant. They mostly appear in the order I wrote them, oldest to 'newest’ but I put the two longer fics at the end (Chapters 16 and 18 - Chapter 17 is a warning about how dire Chapter 18 is!!) in case you’re not into long stuff or want to save those until last.

    Summary

    "Give me your hand." John tried to keep the panic from his voice. Tried to make it seem like he wasn't about to lose him again.

    Sherlock looked down at the pavement below his swinging legs and shook his head. He lifted his head to look at John and saw the fear he was attempting to disguise, his dark blue eyes wide. Another hospital roof. How boring.

    Summary

    Mycroft Holmes needs to escape the affections of his family and the pressures of his job. John Watson's been thrust into celebrity and had his heart broken. They decide to trade places -- Mycroft retreats to John's cottage in the country while John heads to the anonymity of busy London -- for the Christmas holiday.

    (This isn't really a crossover, I basically just borrowed the concept of the Christmas rom-com "The Holiday" and forced the Sherlock characters into it. You will not have had to seen the movie to understand this story at all.)

    Summary

    "The idea was fantastically, wildly improbable. But like most fantastically, wildly improbable ideas it was at least as worthy of consideration as a more mundane one to which the facts had been strenuously bent to fit." -Douglas Adams (from "The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul")

    Summary

    Sherlock is back in the world after The Fall. Back in London, back with John. It's everything he ever wanted, everything he fought for- It should be everything he needs.

    But something is wrong with Molly Hooper and she doesn't seem to want to talk about it- At all. And especially not with the higher functioning sociopath who's broken her heart all these years. But what's the point in being The Great Detective if one of your best friends is in trouble and you can't help her? One way or another, Sherlock's determined to get to the bottom of what's ailing his pathologist... Whether Ms. Hooper wants him to or not...

    Hard T for some language, mentions of domestic abuse and abusive relationships.
