    Summary

    One did not surprise Sherlock Holmes on his birthday. It was not his ‘thing’. It was rarely appreciated. John knows this. He knows, but…

    Tomorrow Sherlock turns forty-six. It isn’t a particularly momentous birthday. No one does something special when you turn forty-six. It’s just a birthday like any other, and by that age, usually one you would rather forget.

    But John can’t forget.

    The year Sherlock had turned forty-five had been as difficult for John as it had for Sherlock. Sherlock who had always shone so bright that John had just assumed he’d live forever was finally starting to show his age. He couldn’t quite keep the long hours he used to. He couldn’t eat takeaway five nights in a row without paying the price. He was getting wrinkles in the corners of his eyes, and small bags beneath them, and had started to get grey in his hair, mostly at his temples.

    All those things only made John love him more, but therein lies the problem, and the source of all his current turmoil.

    John loves Sherlock.

    Summary

    The government had decided after Brexit that the way to fill jobs was not to allow immigrants on work visas, but to have everyone soldier through until there was a new generation. Of course, this meant there needed to be more children. For there to be more children there needed to be more marriages and, of course, for marriage there needed to be dating.

     

    There was a rumour going around that the government was planning on matching couples based on profiles and forcing them to wed. Thankfully it hadn’t come to that yet.

     

    Tall dark and handsome takes the seat across from John in a coffee shop.
