    John knows what this is about. This is about finally figuring it out.

    Summary

    The metaphor is imperfect but still workable. If my long term memory is a hard drive, then my short term memory is RAM. The hard drive became read-only following the illness. New data is stored in RAM and can be used while I remain awake. Going to sleep – ‘turning off’ – wipes the RAM, returning the system to what it was prior to the illness.

    This is the story of how the impossible happens.

    Summary

    It occurred to John, as he watched Sherlock smile at Victor, that maybe he hadn’t understood anything. He understood that he loved Sherlock, and thought Sherlock felt the same. But what if Sherlock had an entirely different understanding of what they meant to one another?
