    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

    What happens when the cut on Dean's arm, done to prove he is human, gets noticed by the school? They come to certain conclusions and Dean finds himself forced to go to the school counsellor. The young hunter has to play along or they will call John, only for them to find out that John is not in the picture at the moment and the boy's are living alone out of a motel room.
    During Dean's sessions he is forced to confront the doubts he has buried in his head over the life they live. He is forced to really think about his life and for the first time, to think about what he wants to do with it. Dean is forced to confront his pain. Pain he didn't realise he had, and didn't dare recognise before now.
    With the boy's alone Dean and Sam are safe to enjoy normality for once. Dean could now concentrate on; his brother, homework, providing and creating a home for Sam and a pair of blue eyes Dean keeps seeing when waiting for his counselling sessions, and cant get out of his head. Blue eyes belonging to a boy Dean found himself compelled to try to save and protect.
    Good things do not last forever, Dean knew that more than anyone. He knew it was only a matter of time until John returned.

    Summary

    After the events in the sweets warehouse, John and Sherlock try to make sense of their lives.
    The third and final (probably?) part of the Nodus Tollens series.
    If you haven't already, please read parts 1 (Lost) and 2 (Broken) before embarking on this one.
    Mix of fluff, angst, PTSD, depression, hurt/comfort, some arguments, and finally some actual interaction between these two in ways we've all been waiting for!! (hint: it's smut.)

    NOTE: I am a Clinical Mental Health Counselor, licensed in the state I live in, and I run an intensive, acute treatment program for adults who tend to have pretty severe symptomology and complex trauma histories. The way that I present mental health issues in this story is as accurate as I possibly can. Trauma affects everyone differently, but it has some hallmarks that will be present in this story, including: mood swings, intense anger/irritability, hyper-reactivity, sudden panic and anxiety symptoms, and some personality changes. This is very common in trauma, and unfortunately due to the events in this story we will see these symptoms exemplified in our dear Doctor Watson. He will get better, but give him time. It's gonna be rough for a while! <3

    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

    The title of this story is inspired by the song with the same name by Florence and the Machine.
    Sherlock walks away from the reception, but John isn't having it. He pushes it until it breaks, which forces Sherlock to admit a few things and John to react to that.
    This was supposed to be a short, angsty piece, but suddenly there was a lot of sex (Sherlock surprised me a bit here, but well), and then Mary and Sholto demanded to play a part, and it all got out of hand. There's no system or structure to this - it's just fragments of a night that changed some lives. I hope you'll like it anyway!

    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

    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

    Set post TRF, John and Sherlock are attempting to cope by writing each other letters…only John isn’t coping. He’s slowly killing himself through depression and alcohol abuse. Once things get out of hand, Sherlock blows off his mission with Mycroft and returns home to find Moriarty’s replacement has kidnapped John in an attempt to bait Sherlock, having discovered that he survived the rooftop with Moriarty.
    This piece is what happens after John is kidnapped and everyone is flailing about trying to find both John and Sherlock, who is MIA.

    Pt 2 of the Nodus Tollens series. Written from multiple POVs, all first person but from a variety of characters. You definitely need to read Pt 1 (Lost) to understand what is happening in this work!

    Please read the tags--this is an angst filled feels-fest, set post TRF with fix-its. Some references to earlier parts in the show, set before S3/S4 and changes the trajectory of things dramatically (no Mary, no Rosie, etc).

    2/13/18: I added a piece of art drawn by none other than my dear Beta_Jawn of Doctor Watson in Chapter 6. It's gorgeous and rough and horrible. She did fantastic. :) Check it out, even if you've read the chapter. Enjoy!!

    Summary

    Si tuviera que decirte una cosa sobre el amor, supongo que estaría perdido.
    Pero si tuviera que hablarte sobre él, y sobre la forma en la que mis ojos le siguen cuando lo tienen cerca... Sólo te pediría que tuvieras cuidado. Uno sólo aprende a distinguir el infierno cuando lo encuentra.

    Summary

    John esperaba ser padre algún día; esperaba tener casa, esposa, un bonito trabajo suburbano. Sherlock nunca esperó tener hijos, en parte porque nunca esperó vivir más allá de los treinta. Resulta que ninguno de los dos pudo elegir. Apretujado en Baker Street con un bebé, John se enfrenta a las dificultades de ser padre soltero y a sus propios miedos, mientras Sherlock vadea la delicada línea entre hacer muy poco y decir demasiado.

    Traducción de un original de Odamaki.
