    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

    Silent, hardly breathing and still, Sherlock stood there, surrounded by an air of vulnerability, unresponsive to the world. Slowly, verdigris eyes met Greg’s, reluctant and filled with sorrow that didn’t fit there. How long have you been suffering alone? “It was for a case,” Sherlock said, voice weak and tight, not holding the same defensive tone he had earlier with the others. Not needing to hold up masks anymore.

    Takes place in HLV with John taking Sherlock to get seen by Molly and Greg walks in and helps Sherlock pick up the shattered pieces of himself.

    Summary

    Summary

    “God, Sherlock,” Greg breathed, and Sherlock knew the look of disappointment-not at him, never at him, at the situation, Greg would always insist- and bitter sadness would be on his face if he decided to turn around. He didn't. He wasn't strong enough to look into those woeful brown eyes. He wasn't John. He didn't have the bravery of a soldier. “If you take this any further, I'm gonna have to tell Mycroft to put you on a 5150. This is beginning to go from unhealthy right into suicidal territory, you realize that, right?”

    Another car passed by outside. It was raining again, less of a drizzle and beginning to seem more like a storm. The time of warm days and sun bathing were over it seemed, the weather had begun to shift into constant gloom and rain.

    Summary

    Sherlock stood sheepishly in front of Lestrade, who had his arms crossed and was staring at him with a very heavy scowl on his face. Sherlock had been feeling his adult mindset slipping into little boy mindset all day, and he was quickly growing nervous at the thought of slipping now of all times.

    So! Long story short, Sherlock almost kills himself (again) and Greg gets tired of it and decides to punish Sherlock (who is mentally regressing but Greg doesn't know that yet). Then Sherlock finally slips into little space and Greg takes care of him once he realizes what's going on.
