    Summary

    What happens when a post war vet with PTSD takes up with a madman detective and they spend time investigating and solving some truly horrific crimes? How does the doctor who can kill with steady hand process all that additional trauma? How do we recognise that our past still haunts us, in ways we don't realise?

    When you are caught in a vicious cycle of needing the thrill of the chase, and having to deal with the fallout...what happens when you might need to choose between the two for your own sanity?

    The story of how two damaged men managed to find their way back to each other and begin to make a future together.

    NOTE: Mind the TAGS - there are some short but detailed and graphic enough descriptions of violence to children, torture, dead bodies etc in the first chapter.

    Summary

    Whilst on a mission, John and Todd are attacked and stranded on a planet without a working stargate. Their only hope of escape comes in the form of Wraith from Todd's own alliance, who don't know of Todds "dealings" with humans. It's either be caught or, do what Todd does best and lie. One demonstration later and John finds himself on a Hive alongside his dubious companion. What was supposed to be a temporary stop soon becomes a journey into the vastness of the Pegasus Galaxy with no way to contact Atlantis and no way off the ship without being found out and risking not just death, but Todd's alliance itself. Desperate to get back to their respective homes, John and Todd must embark on a long and dangerous quest with no hope for survival except each other.

    Across the Universe is the story of trust, acceptance, and love between two unlikely wayward adventurers. It seems that there certainly is a lot about each other that John and Todd don't know.

     

    -Set in season five after "Search and Rescue" and before "The Queen" as an AU timeline.

    Summary

    [A petite, brunette girl enters the screen, anxiously looking at the camera.]

    MOLLY: Are you filming? [She mutters whilst looking at a person behind the lens.]

    GREG: Yeah, yeah, you can start. [The voice comes from outside the camera’s view.]

    Caption - “Molly Hooper, 16 years old, junior, straight-A student. Science club member, school library over-attender, proud cat mom.”

    MOLLY: Ok. Right. [Takes a deep breath, clutches tightly her school books to her body.] It all started two weeks ago, when someone spray-painted dicks all over the 27 cars in the employees’ parking lot.

    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. Will John be able to break the young man's barriers and prove to him that he's not a superficial, patronizing Alpha like so many others, but someone who is genuinely interested in him?

    Summary

    Some people are just more private than others and that’s okay for John, but then there is a whole new level to reticence and its called Dascha. Even though something dark is lurking in her eyes, he is drawn to the mysterious woman. Soon he learns why she is giving of a scary vibe and he didn’t like the new information. Maybe somethings should stay secret… like his feelings for her, because he can’t think straight, when she is around and walks right back into his misery. She is driving him insane and he is starting to like it. Slowly they drag each other into a dark and tempting game. The rules were never discussed, but it’s not the time for playing nice.

    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

    “Mary can’t know that I don’t know how to waltz! She already thinks I’m a bumbling idiot, no need to prove it to her. You can teach me, and when she sees at the wedding that I know what I’m doing, she’ll be properly impressed.”

    “If she thinks a classic waltz will be easier for you, John, I hate to say that she already knows you’re a bumbling idiot.”

     

    John asks Sherlock to teach him how to waltz for his wedding. Sherlock obliges, but as is every other interaction between them, things get a little intense.

    Summary

    In the months following Sherlock’s fall, it seems that John has begun to lose himself completely.

     
    Perhaps it’s wishful thinking. Delusion. An unwillingness to let go of the person he was when he was with Sherlock Holmes.

    Either way, it’s the only thing he’s got left to live for, and he isn’t ready to let go of it just yet.

    Summary

    "He died two years ago, but his death still haunts me to this day. So many things left unsaid, so many feelings left untouched. Can I continue on this way, or will I too fade away from this world and be just another whisper in the wind. What am I really without Sherlock Holmes?"

    Two years have passed since Sherlock's fall, and we find John only a shell of his former self. He has fallen into the deep pits known as despair and insanity due to the loss of his almost lover. What happens when it all becomes too much to bear and John begins to think of just ending it all. Will Sherlock finally make his appearance and save John, or will someone else, a devious and cunning man perhaps, get to him first? For John, the voices were only the beginning...
