    Summary

    It was only a matter of time. John knew that from the start. Now, he stared at the read-out on the thermometer before examining his reflection in the bathroom mirror. A glassy blue gaze stared back at him from beneath the dishevelled nest of his hair. Dark shadows smeared their warpaint beneath his eyes and his skin had an unhealthy, greyish tinge.

     

    John catches Covid-19, and it's up to Sherlock to take care of him within the sanctuary of Baker Street.

    Summary

    'We had a complaint about noise. Fighting. You wouldn't know anything about that, would you?' Greg scanned the area with his torch, noting the delicate turn of the wrists at the jumper's cuffs. Skeletal. No meat on him at all. An addict, then, if Greg had to guess. He had that sallow, thin-skinned look as well, the one that came when the next hit meant more than the next meal. A bad state to be in. 'You got a name?'
    The hesitation was just long enough for him to realise he wasn't getting the truth. 'William.'

    Or: Five times Greg met a man called William, and one he found a friend called Sherlock.

    Summary

    John meets up with Greg for a few drinks down the pub to talk shop and Sherlock.

     

    'Can I ask you a question?'

     

    John wrinkled his nose. He knew that tone of voice. As a doctor, he heard it a lot. The tight, nervous tones of someone who was about to pull down their pants and ask you to look at something odd on their backside.

    Summary

    'You fence?' John didn't know why he was surprised, not when it made such perfect sense. 'Well enough to become Cambridge champion?'
    'No.' Sherlock didn't look up from his phone. 'Well enough to be British Champion.'

    The murder of the King's College fencing champion leads to revelations about Sherlock's past. Will it be the point that tips them from friends to lovers, or will they remain on the fence?

    Summary

    ‘Do you think we’re less than that – best friends? Or more?’
    John’s head pulled back, and the look he received suggested John was seriously wondering how someone so intelligent could be so stupid. ‘Well, definitely not less.’

     When stranded on a derelict barge at high tide, John and Sherlock reconsider their friendship.

    Summary

    "Most lovers would be intent on what lay below the belt – fixated on the obvious. No doubt they had good cause for such fascination, but Sherlock wanted to know every inch of the man who had come to mean so much to him. He wanted to explore each ridge of bone and supple hollow of flesh. A banquet of information stretched before him – a feast so plentiful that he could not decide where to begin."

    Summary

    "At times like this, with his every nerve alight with the rush of pursuit, it was a challenge to cling to his humanity. Saliva flooded Sherlock’s mouth, and he was more aware of his teeth than usual as he acknowledged his body’s desire to bite. Logically, he knew that the creature at his mercy was a human suspect and not something that should be termed as prey, but a small, dark part of him cared little for the distinction."

    Summary

    "A clink of glassware made him open his eyes, his stomach lurching sideways in alarm. He’d thought the room was empty. Only the rugby players and people who wanted to watch practice hung about once the school day was over. Who would bother being in a classroom this late?"

    Summary

    In a world where Omegas are the property of the elite Alphas, locked away and treasured by those wealthy enough to buy them, John never questioned his flatmate's secondary gender. Sherlock Holmes was an Alpha through-and through.

    Wasn't he?

    A chance discovery turns the world on its head, and John is left grappling to come to terms with Sherlock's past as events conspire to threaten their future.
