  1. Summary

    Jack Harkness is a man with a long, storied past. Only a fraction of it is 'known', but so much more of it has shaped him. These are the stories that have not been told, the impacts seen but kept hidden.

    This is the tale of a man granted eternity, and it is a cautionary one, children. There is a reason everything comes to an end. Here there is no Happily Ever After ...

    Summary

    John Watson's 10th season as a Denali National Park Ranger was shaping up to look like all the years before.

    Until a special team from Europe was flown into the Park for a summer-long wolf-tracking research project, and the head of that research team was wearing a perfectly tailored suit.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Impossibly beautiful, sad and uplifting. An engrossing story of connection, coupled with an insightful look into one trans person’s experience. And such heart-rending Johnlock. I adore this fic.

    If you have triggers, watch the tags and the chapter notes. Be aware, there is the passing of a beloved animal. Also, body-dysphoria struggles for the transgender character. In my opinion, all is written compassionately, with purpose of story and plot, and is incredibly meaningful in context, and each chapter is very explicitly noted if there are to be possibly alarming things. It is so worth it, but please make sure and have care for yourself first.

    Beautiful, insightful, moving, and meaningful. So much more than you could imagine. Worth the read, many times over.

    Summary

    Sherlock tours worldwide with the English National Ballet. John dances the Lindy Hop competitively all across the globe. That they would meet, then, by the slimmest of chances in one lonely city, is pure coincidence. The whole 'dancing together' bit is a little more planned. Dancer!AU.

    Summary

    All John Watson wants is the feeling of a freshly waxed surfboard under his feet and the hot California sun baking down onto his back. To finally go pro in the newly formed world of professional surfing and leave the dark memories of his past behind him as he rips across the face of a towering blue barrel. To lounge beside the beach bonfire every evening with an ice cold beer tucked into the cool sand beside him and listen to Pink Floyd and the Doors while the saltwater dries in his sun bleached hair.

    That's all he wants, that is, until the hot young phenom taking Oahu and the Hawaiian shores by storm steps up next to him in the sand in the second round of the 1976 International Surf Competition.
