    Summary

    Life goes back to what passes for normal at 221B Baker Street.
    Sherlock's back and his scars have faded.
    John's still a confirmed bachelor and his nightmares have mostly ceased.
    So why are there awkward pauses and uncertain glances? Why are they both on their best behaviour?
    It's been a long, cold winter in London and there's more to come before spring arrives.

    Summary

    He huffs a breathy laugh as he exhales, a ring of smoke falling from his slightly-parted lips. “I’m a ghost,” he says without irony. “What else am I to do with my spare time?” He leans forward in his chair, narrowing his eyes at me. “Which is, to say—all of my time.”

    A shiver erupts throughout my body, starting in my spine and settling into the pit of my stomach. I know that he knows better. I know I ought to be angry with him. I also know that I’m not angry at all.

    “Couldn’t you just...rearrange my books and drag heavy objects across the top floor, like all the other ones do?”

    He rolls his eyes, wrapping his lips around the filter of his cigarette. Another inhalation. Another exhalation.

    I stare.

    “Boring.”

    Summary

    "The point was, they had carved out a platonic relationship for themselves with infinite care. Sherlock believed that John was largely straight, and John believed that Sherlock didn’t feel things in that way, and around those beliefs they’d built up a friendship that worked. And now John was drifting over to those carefully established boundaries and prodding them gently, and seemed to be asking, “What if we...?”
    And it felt...amazing."

    John is behaving oddly, and Sherlock hopes it means what he thinks it means, but he has several theories and could well be missing some of the facts.
