  3. Summary

    This is a series of alternate universes, because I bloody adore AUs. Each of the 26 installments in this series will focus on a different letter of the alphabet, and a different universe along with it. Throughout these various worlds and versions of our beloved BBC Sherlock characters will be adventures and first-meetings and new lives, but there is one constant: Sherlock and John, finding each other, staying together.

    Summary

    He never hated her more than when Sherlock tells him, his eyes full of pain and his voice wavering, shattering the quiet bubble of domesticity that formed around them in their months of cohabitation, that he will have to go back to Mary.

     

    A season 3/ season 4 fix it, with the chapters inspired by the Advent ficlet challenge prompts by MissDavis on Tumblr. I don't think the chapters count as ficlets technically but oh well.

    Summary

    Sherlock stares down at him, and he can’t help but think about how natural it feels to be with him like this.

    It doesn’t feel right to wake him. So instead, Sherlock carefully guides him backwards, pulling the sleeping man into his lap.

    There’s a peaceful smile on John’s pink lips, and Sherlock wants to kiss it.

    But he reminds himself that kissing may be much more than John needs, so he simply wraps his arms around him—like he’s always wanted to do—and he leans his own head against the sofa and falls asleep.

    Summary

    John wants to take Sherlock’s wrist into his hand, to tether him close. Pull him in with a palm at the small of Sherlock’s back, press his forehead into the curve of Sherlock’s neck. Catch that heat, and hold it forever. Kiss him.

    He doesn’t. Instead, he settles for tea and awkward conversation.

    Fifteen minutes, tops, and John barely breathes the whole time.
