    Summary

    “I love you.”

    Sherlock sees the words hit John with almost physical force. He reels back a little, jaw twitching and eyes filling.

    “I love you,” he repeats, a little softer, a little more gentle, as earnest as he possibly can. Because they’ve been teetering on the brink of this thing for years, and it had become painfully obvious over the last few months that they were at a tipping point. This had to happen. Now it has. Now they can see where they end up.

    The tears in John’s eyes spill over, and he wipes at them angrily. “Do you even know what that means?”

    Summary

    John Laurens considers his life to be split into two parts.

    When he has nothing: no friends, no will to live, nothing but the inflamed tissue of scars adorning his skin.

    And when he has everything: All the friends he will ever need, a will to live (given to him by his lovely friends), and all his scars healing with only pink lines across his skin as a mere memory of his past.

    What happens when one tiny mistake costs him everything?

    Summary

    Dissociative fugue is a rare condition in which a person suddenly, without planning or warning, travels far from home or work and leaves behind a past life. Patients show signs of amnesia and have no conscious understanding or knowledge of the reason for the flight. The condition is usually associated with severe stress or trauma.

    Sherlock Holmes is dead. He's been dead for nearly two years. John is finally done entertaining the thought his closest friend is alive. Well, that is until one day he bumps into a man claiming himself to be Arthur Doyle. Is John willing to throw his new life out the window for Sherlock, or as he claims to be called, Arthur?

    Can the Baker Street Boys pull each other's life back together?

    Summary

    Paralysing nerves tugged at Sherlock, hooking the words from beneath the tender shrine in his sternum and forcing them to fall out, crumble, in an explosive barrage of unexpected, uncontrolled, unfathomable, pain-stricken proclamations that he, undoubtedly, could never turn back from.

    -

    A healing, yet disdainfully painful, path to their proper ending.

    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

    “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.
