    Summary

    Just where exactly is the line between “to love” and “to be in love”? What difference is required between “flatmate” and “husband”? (Besides the rings, obviously.) No, the important bit is that they have each other. Thirty years, give or take, in an atypical marriage. Basically a long bit of platonic domestic fluff.

    Summary

    Ten years after Sherlock returned from the dead, John’s living at 221B, and the only thing that seems to have changed is his weight. He’d really like to stay home this Friday night, but Sherlock’s agreed to take a despondent Molly out dancing, and insists that cheering up Molly is a two-man job. But letting Molly choose the venue may have been Sherlock’s undoing.

    John Watson is on the case, doing a bit of detective work himself to reveal the secret Sherlock’s been keeping from him, the secret that has something to do with Fringe, the nightclub Molly’s sister recommended. Along the way, John must confront the niggling jealousy that keeps rearing its ugly head as he finds out that what he thinks he knows about Sherlock is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
