    Bookmarker's Notes

    AU where youngsters Sherlock and John grow up on neighboring farms in Minnesota. They are very close friends, and realize just before they leave for different colleges, that they love each other in a physical way, too. Traces them into college (special emphasis on holiday breaks when they can be together) and onward. There is sex, and it's well-written sex, but there is too much sex. I couldn't relate to how horny 18-19-year-olds are!

    Summary

    Sehnsucht: longing, pining, yearning, craving, intensely missing. An individual’s search for happiness while coping with the reality of unattainable wishes.

    John is here now, yes, yes he is. He and Rosie are back home in 221B with Sherlock, safe where they belong... but why is there still a hole deep inside Sherlock, wide and gaping and consuming? Does John feel it too? And what will it take to fill it?

    So, so so sweet and good. Sherlock and John have already been pining for each other, but they are such idiots, it takes John getting shot and nearly dying to force them o acknowledge their mutual feelings. Feels and more feels, but no actual sex.

    Summary

    Ignores The Final Problem, so no Eurus or any of that; I had no idea how to tackle it. :)

    After the events of The Lying Detective, John and Sherlock attempt to rebuild their friendship, and John struggles with life as a single father. He discovers he is not fully in control of his anger and behavior, and spirals into depression. Follows John through this dark period, and through the healing process he needs to make both for himself and for Sherlock, who has stood by him throughout.

    *Trigger Warning: pretty graphic depiction of deep depression and suicidal thoughts, including a (non-successful) attempt. Later part of the story follows a hospitalization and healing process coupled with developing/realized romance. Please take care of yourself, dear reader; if this subject is triggering for you, choose another story!

    *Edited to add: If you find yourself thinking like John in this story, hear me now: depression tells you the world would be a better place without you in it. DEPRESSION LIES. Please talk to someone about your feelings - a counselor, therapist, or friend. If talking to someone you know is not okay for you, try the US suicide prevention hotline, as of this writing at 800-273-8255.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Fantastic work centering on John's feelings of inadequacy and guilt following S4. He actually tries to commit suicide, but is stopped by Sherlock and subsequently placed in a rehab facility, where he begins to interact with an atypical (disabled and very upfront) psycho-therapist nicknamed "Duck." He begins to work very hard on his psychological problems, and begins to come to many new realizations, including the feeling that he loves Sherlock and might want to take their relationship further.

    Not complete, as I now write--but author has said she intends to finish the fic. I have been encouraging (pestering) her for many months.

    Summary

    "Where Sherlock enjoyed every second together and counted the minutes to see John again, his (former) best friend kept his distance, even when they sat on a bench together and watched Rosie run around the park. To Sherlock John was home, and John had found a different one."

    Sherlock wants John to come home.
    John wants the space to cure his broken heart.
