    Summary

    2 am - 20 hours without sleep. The experiment may be starting to affect me. Slight heart palpitations earlier -either due to the caffeine or lack of sleep. Maybe lack of food too. Only other possible stimulus could be the barista, but logically speaking, it's impossible for a smile or a brush of fingers as drinks are passed over to have an effect on the circulatory system.

     

    John works the night shift at a 24-hour coffee shop, and meets a mildly sleep-deprived and caffeine-dependent Sherlock Holmes, experimenting on the effects of sleep deprivation on his mind and body.

    This is written for the Always1895 September prompt: Coffee Shop.

    Summary

    They stood face to face in the middle of a clearing. The dim light of the moon barely allowed Sherlock to see the glassy terror in John’s eyes and the sweat that glistened off his forehead. His nose was bleeding again, blood dripping in a slow stream from his right nostril.

    They were both gasping for air, John’s eyes locked on Sherlock’s. There was no recognition there, just wild animal fear.

    Time stood still for an eternal few seconds, and Sherlock took a shaky breath. “John—”

    Spell broken, John spun and bolted back into the woods.

    Still heaving for air, Sherlock took off after him.

    Summary

    Mummy Holmes is a social being. Beloved. A philanthropist. She insists her aloof children accompany her to at least one charitable event a year. In an effort to maximize his avoidance of actual tedious human interaction, Sherlock always chooses the one event where he can hide in plain sight: an annual fancy dress masquerade intended to raise awareness of (and funding for) the plight of wounded soldiers.

    Every year Sherlock grudgingly attends. Every year he endures two hours (the minimum commitment to appease mummy's expectations). Every year he leaves thoroughly unaffected without a backward glance.

    This year's party is different though. This year's party has something those past parties never did. This year Sherlock meets Captain John H. Watson.
