    Summary

    Sherlock is back and all seems forgiven, but something is missing between him and John. Their friendship initially appears intact, but Sherlock doesn't understand why John seems to be slipping away. Finally, in terror, he tries to reconnect with John by taking him to the one place that seems to inspire any emotional interest in John any more: the Canadian wilderness. While there, Sherlock faces his greatest fear.

    An excellent post-Reichenbach: understated and lyrical.

    Summary

    Written for kinkmeme prompt: "I play the violin professionally (music for tv advertisements, movies, musicals, etc.) and while I happily suspend my belief for Sherlock; I had a "sherlock yelling at the telly" moment every. Single. Time. Sherlock "played" the violin. Considering how much goes into making the series I was stunned as to how completely obvious that the playing was fake. I've seen it done so much better on lesser shows. It was so glaring that it removed me from the episodes.
    Sherlock is supposed to be an excellent violinist. So, I'd love a story where he is screaming at the telly about how horribly fake the playing is, and how they couldn't even match the music to the bowings. (!!) Because I know if Sherlock saw Sherlock "playing" he'd have to comment."
    [Author's Note: Hopefully this serves as therapy for all us violinists out there (I'm a violist, for the record). I feel bad, but it does get to us in a way that is very difficult to explain, and there is no way Sherlock, watching, would tolerate it at all. I'm so sorry Benedict. I love you. I'm sure it has a lot to do with camera angles and lighting on which takes they use, and poor sound editing. You care enough to be learning. I blame the consultant]

    Summary

    From bbcsherlockkinkmeme prompt: "Sherlock gets a check up by a doctor who got highly touchy, grope-y and creepy. He tries to forget it and has to come to terms with himself - that he was affected by it. John can't get Sherlock to tell him what's wrong, and notices worrying signs and while he has seen those in patients who have experienced sexual assault, John can't be sure it's the same reason for Sherlock's changes. Sherlock feels humiliated and embarrassed about what happened AND about his reaction to it after. Sherlock doesn't want to press charges/notify anyone and Sherlock and John argue over this."
    {Author's Note: A surprising number of people have gone through something similar to this... including me.}

    Summary

    "I'll put the kettle on. You two might want to make use of those booths over there. Warm the body and the soul. Wouldn't want that soul to get too warm, now, though, eh?" He winked. "Father Brian is in there right now."

    The priest disappeared, and Sherlock spoke rapidly and quietly. "One of us needs to be coming out of there when he gets back. It is imperative he sees it. Go in there and confess something."

    From BBC kinkmeme: "John and Sherlock are shuffled into a church during a case. There's people already there and John and Sherlock are mistaken for patrons of the church. They have to join in confessions for some reason (it's rather hard to say no to such nice people). Sherlock confesses his "sin" of "seducing" [insert person of high status in a community such as a priest, teacher etc] when he was a little boy and... he truly believes it was his fault."
