University AU — Victor was never meant to love Sherlock, because Sherlock was never meant to be his. And yet... He somehow became Sherlock’s light in the darkness anyway. Sherlock won’t call it love, because he has no right to, and for some reason, he just can’t walk away from his boyfriend, even though the man is slowly killing him. Victor tells him love shouldn’t hurt, and it doesn’t... With Victor.
Prequel to ‘Dubious’ — could possibly be read as a stand-alone piece as long as one bears in mind that Sherlock was having an affair with Victor whilst remaining in an abusive relationship with another man. Takes place during Sherlock's uni days. Please heed any and all trigger warnings.

‘It’s okay... Let him do what he wants. He’s entitled; I killed his wife.’
John moves back into Baker Street after Mary dies saving Sherlock, but life does not resume as normal. He does not forgive Sherlock for forsaking his vow — and he does not let him forget it.
Very dark, and immensely fucked up: dubious consent, sexual violence, manipulation, abuse. Dark!John is a huge prick.
John says every time Sherlock says 'stop' he will do so immediately. Sherlock knows that there is always a point that most men say they can't stop. The idea that John might be so much more than what Sherlock has come to expect from other men intrigues him, so he begins an experiment in consent.
John begins to realise he is being tested, but he doesn't know why. (Does he ever when it comes to Sherlock?) All he knows is that something happened in Sherlock's past to make him think that what he wants or doesn't want doesn't matter in the bedroom.
Then the nightmares start.
