    Summary

    "Your life is not your own."

    "Your life is not yours to choose."

    Two alternate people from a multitude of different worlds, and yet the same.

    On January 29, 2016, Sherlock Holmes tries to commit suicide by jumping into the Thames before being saved by a young woman he met by chance. The wounds by John Watson in the morgue only remind the Sherlock of his failed self, and of the deep deception that succeeded in protecting his true self from the other people: a self-medicating addict, prone to depression, suicidal thoughts, and low self-esteem. He knows that he has always been a fuck up.

    "I know what's like to be treated like that."

    Since the morgue, his body remembers even if his mind wants to forget and blame it on himself. For some reason, Sherlock Holmes is afraid of John Watson, even as he still desperately loves him. And John Watson doesn't understand what he did wrong.

    It seems that the only person who understands is the woman who is trying to save him.

    But do they all, all these actors in this tragedy, want to endure the journey in order to live again?

    Summary

    John was still heartbroken about the sudden suicide of his best friend. There are so many things he wished he could've said, should've said but didn’t. "Married to my work" was pretty clear. Two years later still at 221B, John is barely living. He doesn't stray too far from the flat anymore, just to go for a shift at the surgery or to Tesco's around the corner. He's lost nearly two stone and he's honestly given up on properly functioning. He's ready to give up and end. All he wants is to be with Sherlock again.

    Summary

    Get in loser, we're going shipping.

    This is my version of life after the events of 'The Final Problem.'

    The last episode of season four, but it also contains elements from the entire series.

    So yeah...

    Obvious spoilers.

     
    Don't come after me with torches and pitchforks if Y'all don't take a moment to read my summary.

     
    But I digress.

     This fic contains RIDICULOUS amounts of smut since the BBC won't let us have nice things.

     

    But smut with a plot.

    I hope that my fic will make you laugh and also give you a good dose of the FEELS.

    This is SUPPOSED to be a mostly happy story because fuck knows we need one after season four.

    But.

    Like Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat.

     

    I am not a merciful God.

    I'm an evil masochistic bastard and I survive on the tears of my viewers.
     

    So, naturally, It'll be fine and dandy for a suspiciously long time and then suddenly...

     

    All of the shit.

     

    Will hit all of the fans.

    Summary

    Sherlock wasn't sure how it happened.

    One moment they're in each others faces, hands clenched at their sides as they spat out insults and curses, and the next, the space between them had been closed. Sherlock's skin tingled where the tips of John's fingers touched, feeling as if he was laid bare before the other man all of a sudden, nothing but a few layers of flimsy clothing between John's calloused hands and his bare flesh.

    When John crashed their lips together, Sherlock couldn't help but think that it's too soon. It was too soon after all that had happened, and John's fingers burned through Sherlock's paper skin without any thought for the ashes he'd be leaving behind.

    Summary

    Sherlock is back at 221B Baker Street. Everyone keeps telling him that he's safe now, that he won't be hurt anymore. But being without Jim hurts just as much as the thought of being without John.

    Healing is hard enough, and when you throw in the king of blackmail, things really can't get any worse.
