    Summary

    His face was pale and gaunt. His eyes were bloodshot with black rings around them. He had also allowed his beard to grow in nearly completely. If anyone looked at him they would immediately know that he was an addict. An addict for what? He wasn't sure. He'd dabbled with all kinds of drugs in the last 25 years; marijuana, cocaine, heroin, LSD, and many others he had come across at University. However, it was clear his drug of choice had always been John Watson. This was merely the withdrawal.

    Summary

    To Sherlock’s dismay, John’s return to Baker Street with Rosie is only temporary. Sherlock’s daily visits to Regent Park with John and Rosie illuminate his lost childhood memories and missed opportunities. But with each trip to the park, Sherlock also feels a growing sense of hope. That is until the past horrors return unexpectedly in a cryptic note folded in the shape of a heart. To decipher the message, Sherlock must uncover the nature of the hearts around him, including his own.

    Post S4. First person Sherlock POV. Case fic.

    Written for Fandom Trumps Hate (which needs our support now more than ever before) and commissioned by the talented bluebellofbakerstreet, who requested some BAMF John busting in and saving the day along with fluff, because, um, BAMFs are softies at heart (and that's exactly what this story is about).

    Thank you so much to hotshoeagain for the incredible beta, advice and suggestions. You are a star.

    Summary

    John Watson, medico militare in pensione, dopo il congedo si è sposato con Mary Morstan, ricca ereditiera che però lo ha lasciato vedovo e con una figlia di cui occuparsi. John vive la sua routine giornaliera districandosi tra il dover gestire una figlia e le imprese appartenute alla moglie, che ora sono di sua proprietà. Non ama ciò che fa, al contrario preferirebbe tornare a fare il dottore, ma si impone di tenere duro per il bene di Rosie. Ogni sera, prima di andare a dormire, John si sofferma a osservare un dipinto a cui Mary teneva molto e che John ama tanto quando odia, dato che lo tiene ancorato a un passato che non c’è più’. In una notte d’estate, inaspettatamente, un ladro entra per rubare proprio quel prezioso dipinto.
    Questa storia partecipa alla Challenge di Soly Dea, sul forum di Efp, “Challenge delle parole quasi intraducibili”.

    Summary

    The indisputable fact is this: I had been on terms of great intimacy with Holmes for close to a decade and a half, when I found that my sentiments towards him had undergone a sea-change.

    And yet, it was not a complete revolution. Throughout the course of my acquaintance with Holmes, I had asked myself on a number of occasions whether my feelings might conceivably be something warmer than friendship...

    Watson figures out how he feels. Now he just has to tell Holmes.

    Summary

    Chaos. That is what the death of Mary had brought about in the lives of Sherlock and John. That, and bitter cold distance. Toxic habits come up, there are more questions than answers and a case crops up that seems to take more than just wit to solve.

    Summary

    In 1923, Dr John Watson is on trial for the murder of his lover, Mary Morstan, a writer of popular mysteries. If convicted, he will hang. Sherlock Holmes sets out to prove his innocence, but finds himself more and more infatuated with the handsome doctor, and deeper and deeper inside the bohemian world of London's painters, playwrights, and poets. Will he uncover the evidence needed to acquit him in time?

    Excerpt: "Watching the man’s stoic expression from the side, I began to recognise that this was not just another puzzle to stave off my boredom. I had not often been in romantic relationships, and certainly did not believe that a person could fall in love with another person across a room, just by looking at them. But when I saw the light glinting off his hair, the look of patient fortitude on his face, and knew the effort it must be costing him to maintain his composure, I felt that I could not let him die. John Watson had to be saved, and some fate had brought me here to do just that."

    Summary

    On her way back to Sherlock's flat from the library one night, Rosie is attacked. She wakes up with no memory of anything due to a concussion, only the knowledge that while she was unconscious she was raped. She makes Sherlock promise that he won't tell her dad about it, but eventually the secret becomes too big when she begins having symptoms of PTSD. Rosie insists on dealing with things in her own way, which is good and bad for John and Sherlock's relationship which is just coming to a head.

    I'm bad, bad, bad at summarizing. Give it a read and see if my writing is better than my summarization!!

    Summary

    That is almost what he fears the most.
    Not being able to handle being left alone, without Sherlock, knowing that he could never be like this again, spending a Sunday evening lying naked, post sex, on their living room carpet, just the two of them, still slightly breathless after their activities, sleep lurking just around the corner and the alluring temptation of slipping down under the covers of their shared bed that stands in what used to be Sherlock’s bedroom but now is theirs and soon will be no ones.
    John can’t imagine that he will ever be able to sleep in there again after Sherlock is gone.
