    Summary

    Green.

    The word green was used to convey a great many things. Illness. Envy. Inexperience.

    Standing there amidst Janine's chattering bridesmaids, watching Sherlock furrow his brow and study fabric swatches, watching him smile and simper and flirt, John thought it a remarkably apt colour choice. Because he felt quite sick to his stomach, he feared the source of said sickness might very well be jealousy, and he had absolutely no idea at all what to do about it.

    Or: Sherlock needs to fake a relationship for a case. He doesn't ask John.

    Summary

    "Three years, Sherlock!" John yells down at him; looms over the disgraced detective. "Three fucking years." His voice is loud; too loud. It echoes and ricochets inside Sherlock's aching head. "Three years, I thought you were dead—three years I wished I was dead. And you let me believe it, Sherlock. You let me think—you fed me a lie, and I swallowed it right down, didn't I? Always the follower; always letting you tug me along, string me along." He falls silent; shaking, vibrating with anger, with hurt; with betrayal. His hands clench at his sides, and he looks as if he would like nothing more than to treat the detective to another right hook.

    ---------------

    I originally posted this story on here back in 2011 and had written 9 chapters. I have since edited, updated and resumed the story, so I deleted the old one.

    After Sherlock's suicide, John is left to pick up the pieces of his life. He marries, he works, and he never fully recovers. 3 years later, Sherlock reappears.

    I started writing this before season 3 aired so it's a bit of a different storyline than the show.

    Check the end of each chapter for a hashtag, mostly meant as humour to help balance out the angst.

    Summary

    Heart in Hiding is an historical romance set in Victorian era Britain just prior to the 1877-78 Russian-Turkish War. Lord Holmes (Sherlock), Earl of Ashling, is sent to Turkey on a diplomatic mission by his dictatorial cousin Mycroft, Marquis of Bosham and Chief Adviser to the British Foreign Secretary.

    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

    At this moment, Doctor Watson is blindfolded and shackled to the wall, and the way he writhes and snarls like a wild animal reminds me that he’s mine.

    Mine. Why? Because I’m Jim Moriarty, and I’m going to take everything that Sherlock Holmes loves. And I’m going to break into each and every one of those things with my bare hands. And I’m going to turn them completely inside out, and I’m going to burn them until there’s nothing left but blood and tears and ashes.

    Summary

    John moves back in.

    There’s no dramatic talk, or plea — none of the sort. John simply begins leaving things at Sherlock’s flat, and they compile bit by bit until one day, he stops leaving.

    It’s almost startling how easily they fall back into their normal routine. Their constant rows, the messes in the kitchen, the way they fly through the streets of London, adrenaline coursing through their veins like a drug — and oh, has John missed this.

    Summary

    When Sherlock wakes the morning after Lestrade & Molly's wedding reception, hangover isn't the only thing he has to deal with. He's in bed with John and he doesn't mind it. But how is that possible? What happened to him? Whatever it is, he likes it. Realising he wants John in every way, Sherlock suggests starting a relationship, and though John's amenable to give it a try, he insists on taking things slow, refraining from physical intimacy until they both are sure of their feelings.

    This story follows their bumpy ride, the ups and downs, the inside battles, exploring their deepest fears and desires before becoming a real couple. Slow burn with lots of angst and some lighter, fluffy scenes to ease the tension.
