    Summary

    Written in response to this kink meme prompt: "John is a great dancer: we're talking all types. Not only is he able to pop and lock it, he's got some great ballet technique. He was best at lifting / holding girls."

    Thirteen chapters, thirteen dances, interwoven in two parallel tracks: John's past and his present. And maybe his future, too. (I do love a happy ending with a bit of smut.)

    Summary

    What am I doing? he wondered. The answer came back at once: 
    Flirting.

    He sank deeper into the pillows, let the mist and blur of the wine settle around him, let it shore up his nerves and dim the warning signals that flashed dully in the back of his mind. He let the rest of the disappointment about Lucy and his strange accommodations and about the weekend as a whole fade into obscurity. He let the vital, missing piece snap into place as surely and as cleanly as if it had always been there.

    He was flirting with Sherlock Holmes.

    Summary

    Sherlock fled London a couple of years after John left him in hospital with nothing but an old walking stick and a half-hearted goodbye.

    Rosie grew up thinking that Sherlock died when he committed suicide in front of her father by jumping from Barts' roof.

    So it's somewhat awkward when they run into each other in a Sussex general store between the loaves of bread and the Mars bars...

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes is about to graduate from high school in midwestern America. Despite his intelligence, his prospects are bleak due to poverty, an indifferent, alcoholic father and poor choices. One day, at work, he sells a riding crop to a handsome blonde Brit and his life is changed. He doesn't know what hit him - until he does.

    This is a story of a journey to love and self-acceptance and explores many themes along the way: drug abuse, grief, coming out, age difference, consent. Lots of sex but so much more.
