    Summary

    “That — that thing you did, that was good.” Sherlock stutters over her words and rubs her temple with Jo’s gun and Jo’s ankles feel shaky from the way she’s crouched. She laughs, but she — she’s not yet given her life for someone, not yet, but she thinks she will, someday, for this woman. This woman who smacks her toes down loudly across the tiled floor like she’s making a statement, who waves one hand like it’s not holding a lethal weapon, whose chest, when dotted with red laser sights, is still and steady and bloodless and pale.

    They walk away from the pool and Sherlock’s arm brushes against hers in the chill night air. Then they go home and Sherlock doesn’t speak for three weeks.

    A Series 1 retelling, in the interstices.

    Summary

    "John should have let go. He should have thanked Sholto for catching him and moved on. And never spoken of it again. But instead, he kept his hands on his commanding officer. He glanced up at Sholto, but his face was inscrutable. So John looked back at the hand gripping Sholto's bicep. A tattoo peeked from below the sleeve of Sholto's t-shirt. John cocked his head and pushed up the sleeve with his thumb. Sholto crossed his free hand between them and pushed his sleeve to his shoulder, revealing a number nine with Quo Fata Vocant in an arc above."

    Summary

    The metaphor is imperfect but still workable. If my long term memory is a hard drive, then my short term memory is RAM. The hard drive became read-only following the illness. New data is stored in RAM and can be used while I remain awake. Going to sleep – ‘turning off’ – wipes the RAM, returning the system to what it was prior to the illness.
