  3. Summary

    The London Sherlock returns to after his ‘resurrection’ is vastly different than what he’d expected. But he isn’t going to let that stop him from pursuing his old life, including John Watson.

    John’s engaged to a lovely nurse and has everything he thought he ever wanted. Then why can’t he stay out of his best friend’s bed?

    Scene-based fics that are concurrent with events in S3. This is not an S3 fix-it fic.

    HEED THE TAGS because everyone is morally bankrupt in this fic.

    Title from the song "Heartaches by the Number," a popular country song written by Harlan Howard and published in 1959.

    Summary

    Written for a prompt: The awkward conversation between Mrs Hudson, John and Sherlock when she asks them if they could possibly relocate their, um... more amorous activities to the upstairs bedroom.

    John is mortified. Sherlock is amused. And smug.

    The sillier/more awkward the better.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is heartbreakingly accurate and so realistic. It brought tears to my eyes. It's so wonderful that you showed how painful it is for both of them. It's so painful to lose a loved one to dementia. It's also got to be so painful for the loved one suffering from dementia.

    It's also so heartwarming that they still love each other so much - when John can remember it. And that Sherlock loves John so much all the time. Sherlock's loneliness - what can I say, I can barely breathe? And John's fearful loneliness - I can't breathe in a different way.

    Summary

    John visits Sherlock's grave and tells him his secret. That night, he learns that Sherlock had a secret, too, and John is irresistibly drawn to take a journey in that same world. Slow burn. My kind of fix-it. Events will parallel and overlap with the events of Sherlock S2, S3, and S4.

    Summary

    John can't take Sherlock's jealous, overprotective streak, and leaves Sherlock and Baker Street in a fit of anger. So when they later turn up at the same party, John tries to ignore him. However, ignoring Sherlock Holmes when he's on a case is easier said than done - luckily for Sherlock.

     

    The dark, needy note in Sherlock’s voice makes John want, makes him think of doing things they have no business doing in exactly the worst place imaginable, makes him want to forgive and forget. He’s been full of second thoughts since he left almost a month ago, and as he slowly slides his hands up Sherlock’s chest to caress his neck, John realizes this feeling, this burn of heady need that binds them together, is as instinctive as breathing. He trusts his gut – and he should trust this. Trust them.
