    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.

    Summary

    This will be fourteen chapters by the time we're done (or really, a prologue, twelve chapters, and an epilogue). This carries us through a year in the life of John and Sherlock, as they struggle with their feelings for each other, what it means--and in John's case--causes a reexamination of self/sexual identity. Not too much angst, mostly introspection and some mild panic. I mostly want them to be happy. Series Four has a lot of explaining to do.

    ***Edited 6/1/2017: There is now a bonus chapter, so the total will be 15 chapters.
    ***Edited 6/11/2017: There is now a second bonus chapter, so the total will be 16 chapters.
    ***Edited 7/27/2017: Since I have no self-control and apparently cannot count, there will now be 17 chapters. But that's it! Really.

    Summary

    Clara's American father is the ambassador to some such territory that Great Britain probably used to own, but she (and Harry’s undying love for her) is the reason John is getting on a flight at 12:30pm, flying across the second largest ocean in the world, and pretending to be in a perfectly happy, healthy relationship with an undoubtedly perfectly coiffed stranger.

    See, Clara is not only American (and wealthy to boot), she's also best friends with John’s ex-fiancee. Whom she's placed in the wedding party. As Maid of Honor.

    And John just happens to be Best Man.

    Bloody brilliant.

    Summary

    A young John makes an ‘if we’re still single at 40, we’ll get together’ pledge to a woman who ends up all wrong for him. She keeps reminding him of the promise, and won't let go of it. John asks Sherlock to pose as his boyfriend at a family wedding, so as to dash her hopes permanently. Sherlock, who has at last acknowledged his feelings for John, reluctantly agrees despite knowing how painful it will be to ‘have’ John, but not keep him.

    Summary

    Mycroft meets American math professor - and mystery soon follows. Sherlock and John take the case, but find that their own drama is overshadowing the potential infiltration of Mi6.
    Picks up after an alternate version of series 4, which I hope to eventually relay in flashbacks (Spoiler Alert: giving Saw/Shutter Island a wide berth).
