    Summary

    Falling in love is the easy bit (well, as easy as it can be for an awkward, inexperienced, occasionally insecure magizoologist and a troubled, commitment-phobic, jealous Auror to fall in love). Staying out of trouble is just a smidge more difficult, as is gradually navigating their way through a relationship built to last. Meeting the family? Stressful, but who doesn't love someone with a name like Porpentina? As for dealing with a nefarious flapper determined to kill Miss Goldstein, Grindelwald still at large, a mysterious series of attacks on both Newt and Tina, and everyone's general proclivity to jump headfirst into Dangerous Situations... well, that's rather the point of this entire story, and I don't give away spoilers.

    Summary

    Unilock. Prequel to Catch Me If I Fall. How John saved Sherlock three times, and then every day.

    Mike Stamford and Sherlock Holmes are dorm mates, and John Watson is a friend of Mike's who comes to visit before a party. He's fascinated by Sherlock, and later at the party finds out that his admireer (stalker) has decided he's tired of being turned down all the time. When all is said and done, John finds a bleeding Sherlock when he feels the only exit from shame is his own death. Sherlock is angry and pushes away everyone, turning instead to artificial means of relief. A Doctor comes in and saves him once more. Now the question is how can he save him a third and final time? And can he do it in time?

    Summary

    Sherlock's dæmon hadn't settled. Once John realised that, so much made sense. Though so much else didn't, because it practically wasn't possible.

    Summary

    Sherlock may have physically survived his abduction, but in his mind he'll never be whole again. John understands PTSD, understands what Sherlock is going through, and is determined to be patient. Angst, hurt/comfort, and eventual Johnlock as Sherlock tries to rebuild his ability to trust.

    (Trigger warnings for oblique descriptions of torture, rape, and various nonconsensual things within the confines of a kidnapping. None are current to the story itself.)
