    Summary

    "All these years later, John knows that taking Sherlock's hand that night didn't just mean escaping from the police. That 'take my hand' were not the only three words uttered in that moment. That the underlying, hidden requests would map out the rest of his life." What else went unsaid between them? Covers 18 years of Sherlock/John. Ship it how you like it. M for language.

    Summary

    Sherlock takes a remarkably early retirement at 47, and convinces John that a change of pace would do them both good. They buy an old cottage on the South Downs, and exchange their nonstop life in Baker Street for quiet contemplation, bee studies, and book writing.

    They might go completely insane, but sometimes it takes stepping outside of the life you're living to find the life you want.

    Sherlock takes one last look out to the horizon, mouth downturned and brow furrowed, before seeming to shake himself and catching up to John with a few long-legged strides. John turns back toward the path cut into the cliffs, climbing steadily toward the rolling downs already green and lush in the weak April warmth.

    They reach the top and Sherlock strikes toward the west, back to where their hired Land Rover sits a mile away in a public carpark. John falls into step beside him and takes a deep breath.

     

    “I expected a case,” he starts. “A bit chilly for a walk, really, so. D’you mind telling me what we’re doing out here?”
    Sherlock doesn’t even pause, simply tucks his head down against the wind and continues walking.

    “I’m retiring,” he says simply.
