    Summary

    Now complete!

    The first time it happened was completely by accident.

    Post-Reichenbach, John finds a way to hold on to Sherlock after all.

    Prepare yourself for 1.) angst 2.) plot 3.) smut 4.) more smut 5.) even more smut 6.) more plot 7.) happy ending. But, in apparently WAY too many chapters. If you're worried about the graphic violence / torture, be aware it's limited to Chapter 30. Probably canon-typical, but I'd rather over-warn than under-warn.

    Here's an excerpt, just to give you hope through the angsty first few chapters:

    "I am going to seduce you, Sherlock Holmes," he rumbled into Sherlock's ear, smiling as Sherlock's breath grew unsteady again. "Not because you need it, but because you deserve it. We both do." He gave Sherlock a squeeze. "Trust me?"

    Sherlock's head lifted, those uncanny pale eyes looking at John with complete sincerity. "I've always trusted you, John."

    John felt the last bit of tension leaving his shoulders. "Good." He kissed Sherlock one more time, swift and soft — a promise. "That's good."

    Summary

    Sherlock is a renowned food critic. John has a food truck. You can see where this is going.

    Or, as DaringD said:

    Highly recognizable (unfortunately) Food Critic, Sherlock Holmes, is desperate to do his job without the terrified angst caused by his appearance at restaurants city-wide. It also makes it IMPOSSIBLE to have a decent, relaxed meal! In true desperation, he turns to one of the ubiquitous city-wide food trucks for (hopefully) anonymous sustenance and encounters a little slice of fast-food heaven in the guise of a home-made meatball sandwich accompanied by gourmet crisps! And even better, John, Cook/Culinary Angel, doesn't know him from Adam, thinks his deductions are "brilliant", AND took Sherlock up on his awkwardly accidental inviting himself over for dinner! Could this tender and oh-so-delectable mutual attraction, coupled with a love of deliciously crafted food, blossom into love worthy of a 5 Star Rating?! Stay tuned and find out! ;-)
