    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

    “When did I get so old,” John whispers, because anything else seems too much.

    “When I left you, I imagine.” Sherlock murmurs, presses John’s hand between his. “When I destroyed everything good in your life.”

    John shakes his head, and lifts his other hand to press atop Sherlock’s. “You had your reasons. I was angry for a long time, but I’m not anymore—not about that. I’m angry at your brother more than you. And as for—the rest, you know I don’t blame you for that. It wasn’t your fault, Sherlock. It wasn’t your fault.”

    “As your feeling old and useless isn’t yours.”

    John’s chest feels tight. These are the most real words they’ve said to one another in months. Usually it’s case related chat, or the weather, or light banter about something on the telly. They haven’t talked like this since Sherlock’s birthday. They don’t talk like this. They never talk like this.

    John doesn’t want to talk anymore.

    He wants to…

    He wants…

    Oh.

    He wants.

    Oh dear god, how he wants.

    For the first time in what feels like years he WANTS.
