    Summary

    After John cooks five dinners that slowly reveal their hunger for each other, Sherlock and John finally share a first kiss.

    Coming home to find John busy in the kitchen, a strong wave of domesticity had washed over Sherlock, stirring up something unexpected, something he hadn't quite known he craved until now. But it was more than companionship he was responding to, it was... what, exactly?

    Intimacy. That was the word he was fumbling for. It felt intimate to walk into their home, water bubbling, spoon circling, fingers mounding, scooping, cradling food.

    (Inspired by Sherlock’s line about John from The Sign of Three: “And he can cook… Does a thing … with peas…”)

    The entire idea was ludicrous, and terrified John a whole hell of a lot.

    Summary

    The knocks come crisply—three raps and then a long span of quiet. Slumping down further, John makes every effort to ignore the intrusion and relaxes as best he can in the less-than-ideal space available. If he doesn’t move, maybe he’ll be left in peace. There’s a brief respite of silence and then, again, three more raps on the door, in faster succession this time, followed by, “John, it’s been an hour, how can you possibly—”

    “We agreed two, two hours.” There’s no room for argument; John’s tone makes that very clear.

    It sounds as though Sherlock’s mouth is pressed right to the door when he next speaks. “What if I need the toilet!?”

    The magnitude of what they’re discussing seems as though it shouldn’t fit within the walls of 221B.
