    Summary

    If Sherlock dug deep, he could find the roots of the scars. Scars that he thought he'd left behind in Sherrinford, safely contained within its armoured walls.
    But something happened during those three weeks. Something that dragged up every painful, stinging memory hiding in the recesses of his mind.
    He'd blinked, and suddenly those roots were towering over him with ivory branches.

    Summary

    Sherlock has returned from Purgatory to find that three years have changed more than just his own perceptions and priorities. While he’s thrilled for a second chance to be the father and detective and man he always should have been, he’s come home to find 221B changed in a way he never thought possible—John Watson has moved out.

    As Sherlock works to restore his reputation and to heal the bond with his daughters, he also fights to remake his friendship with John into what it used to be before the first Rip ever happened. As the weeks pass and their inseparable tie reforms, however, the doctor’s absence from their home becomes harder and harder for Sherlock to bear...especially since he's now off living happily with a handsome, charming barrister named Michael Morstan. Why Sherlock is so lost without John there, and so very frustrated about his friend's newfound love, though, is a mystery he just can’t seem to solve…

    …that, and the mystery of why Bea keeps smirking at him as if she knows something he doesn’t.

    Summary

    Alpha John Watson is looking forward to the start of his 4th semester at Durham University where he's studying medicine. After breaking up with his long-term girlfriend Mary, he is ready to have some fun, no strings attached. But then he meets a beautiful, young student who apparently is a genius - and everything changes.

    But the student is quiet, reclusive even and he refuses to respond to John's advances which only makes him more fascinating.

    Summary

    John Watson is a man of military precision in the mornings, and wakes to a daily schedule: Situps. Push ups. A proper wank. Shower. Breakfast. Earl grey. Start the day.

    And sometimes, post-push ups and pre-shower, John wonders if Sherlock locks his door too; if he has a reason to do so at all.

    Married to his work. What a shame.

    __

    Early in their first days at Baker Street, Sherlock walks in on John masturbating. And it *might* have been a little about Sherlock.

    Borne of trying to break some tropes of Sherlock falling into three categories: virgin, gay and distant, or not interested in sex. Sherlock's an addict, and cocaine is off the table. What else would he use to get out of his head?

    Story is complete.

    Summary

    The day when a homeless drug addict and a suicidal ex-soldier met was the beginning of something until then unheard-of: Mutual Attraction.
    Of course, not all was what it looked like in the first place but the days of boredom, loneliness and lack of purpose were history. A case had to be solved, lives had to be saved and a developing relationship had to be tackled.

    Summary

    I said you look pretty, all strung out on coke. You said that’s not funny, but it wasn’t a joke.
    You won’t remember, but I carried you home. You sat in the shower while I washed off your clothes.
    But isn’t that what friends are for, even if we used to be more, like lovers or partners in crime.
    And you were still mine.

    Summary

    The violin is a retreat that eases the quiet of Sherlock Holmes' solitude. It also speaks for him when he cannot bridge the gaps his defenses create. Moments when music helps Sherlock reach out or let others in, like his stalwart flatmate and, in time, the doctor's daughter.

    Five+ times Sherlock Holmes played the violin, and one time he did not.

    Summary

    Mary turned towards John, shielding her eyes from the sun.
    “He is dead. I mean, you told me he is dead. Moriarty,” but John didn’t even have enough strength to respond dismissively. All he cared about was that Sherlock was coming back.
    Oh my God, he was. He could see the plane already.
