    Summary

    Alex has had the biggest crush on Elizabeth Schuyler as long as he’d known her. When he found out that her boyfriend was cheating he was quick to lend her a shoulder to cry on, despite what he truly wanted.

    Eliza was crushed after she caught Thomas Jefferson cheating on her with her best friend Maria Lewis. With Alex at her side throughout it all, she began seeing him as more than a friend.

    Thomas didn’t care what happened after he cheated on Eliza until he heard about her crush on Alexander Hamilton. He couldn’t stand the thought of Alexander having her, if he couldn’t have her. He found revenge in a broken hearted John Laurens.

    John found out about Alex’s crush just before he was going to admit his feelings for the teenager. Utterly crushed he went home and tried to pretend that everything was normal.

    And Maria has a secret. A big secret, one she wasn't very keen on sharing.

    Summary

    Sherlock returns to Baker Street and faces detox. But he feels too exhausted and bad to go through it fully conscious, so he - once more - uses his mind palace to distract him with an old case. But due to his drug issues and the tension between him and John things don't work as smoothly as everyone hoped they would, confronting Sherlock and all his friends with more of their demons than they would have liked to.

    Summary

    "Every unbound omega must be registered for bonding by the time they reach 21 years. You are 32 years old Sherlock. You have come to the attention of the Project Committee. I have been informed that you have 3 days to present yourself, or you WILL be found in contempt. You could lose your right of first refusal altogether. Is that what you want? Whatever alpha they set in front of you, without even the token option to say no?”

    Sherlock never wanted an alpha. He has made it this long without; he has no interest in changing that. Unfortunately things do change and he has 3 days to find an alpha of his own before the choice is made for him. There must be an alpha out there who is capable of letting Sherlock be Sherlock. Right?

    John needs a pack. Aching and miserable after being sent home from the war due to his injuries, he has no one waiting for him. It's not healthy for an alpha to be alone, but what can he do? He wants a true partnership, not the shallow forced bond the Committee offers.

    Circumstances throw these two men together, but can they ever be Bondmates in anything more than name?

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes, in the language of his insufferable brother, was ‘definitely intrigued’ about his job at the dead letter office. At twenty-eight, he had outgrown the horror of drug addiction, which was so characteristic of his younger years. Enter one John Watson, a fuck-up who doesn’t want to be a fuck-up anymore and also wants to fuck Sherlock Holmes. That he’s Sherlock's boss happens to be the least of their problems.

    A story about warzones beyond Afghanistan, second chances in life, and how to fall in love. Told in text, notes and (dead) letters.
    It's Johnlock, elementary.

    Summary

    When Sherlock leaves the envelope for John and Mary at their wedding, he forgets to take out another piece of paper from it - the paper on which he poured his heart out while preparing the Best Man's Speech at 221B Baker Street.

    He intended to burn the piece right after he finished writing, but he was too exhausted from the emotions and accidentally slipped it amongst his composition for the Waltz.

    As things work out, somebody reads his letter. That somebody is John Watson.

    Summary

    “It’s been two years” His mother shrugged looking even more worn out then she had “Some young thing came stumbling in town and caught his attention and I woke up one morning with all his things missing” She looked utterly exhausted and it really made John feel like an ass. Climbing up them three steps felt like twenty, he came face to face with his mother she looked older and worn out, she had developed a whole head of grey hairs and more crows feet but she kept that charm to her, the one that made her look innocent and warm.

    Summary

    Another Lams college au because there aren't enough of them.

    John Laurens is just your typical college student, young, addicted to coffee and totally not prepared for life. One day he meets Alexander Hamilton, a man, who can’t shut up, has an opinion to everything and is absolutely an angel.
    Life is great, he suddenly has friends, maybe he even has a crush and everything is just great.
    Sadly, life is just a shitty show that has short intermissions of happiness now and then.

    (Okay, this is partly used by me to just vent and a lot of these conversations are actual ones I had. I will not have any responsibility for similarities to people I know...I'm still shit at summaries.)

    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

    The truth was, there was nothing special about John Laurens. He was a simple boy who had given up on dreams long ago. He had nothing to share, nothing worthy to give, so what was really the point in trying to talk to whoever this other person was right now?(Even though his soulmate had clearly been trying to communicate with him for a while now. John was always puzzled when he woke up to nothing on his arms but the word 'hello')

    Summary

    Hey, Disclaimer before I give a huge dramatic blurb! I personally don't ship a couple of the smaller ships, but I included them because 1. They're rare and 2. This is based off of a movie called Dan In Real Life. This story mildly revolves around the plot, but I fit each of the characters in the way I thought they should. So, most of the things I write aren't actually in the movie. Got it? Got it.

    John is one of the top-selling authors in the local newspaper column, and he felt as if his life seemed pretty basic and average. He hangs around the Schuyler sisters a lot, but when he brings up a family trip, a couple of minor issues rose to the surface. But when John is given a nudge (okay, more of a ginormous shove) towards someone named Alexander he met at a book store, will thinks run smoothly? Yes! That is, until he finds out that Thomas and Alexander were already a thing. What will he do now, with no one to go to?
