    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Culverton Smith case, John spent one painfully stilted afternoon hanging out with Sherlock. He counted the minutes, finished his tea, and left for home without ever clearing the air between them.

    And once he'd left, he found it very hard to go back.

    Summary

    **Trigger Warning** Do not read if you think you may be triggered by topics listed in the tags for this work, such drug addiction, depression, suicidal ideation and self-harm. If these are things you or someone you know are currently struggling with, there are many resources available, and it is a sign of bravery for those who need them to utilize them.

    Summary:
    I wrote this for two reasons. The first is that this is a little bit how I imagined this episode might go the first time I watched it (perhaps from reading too much fanfiction). Secondly, I wanted to end this fic with a message of hope. A message that everyone can be their own hero. And that, even if it's in a small way, it's perfectly okay to lean on others for support.

    Summary

    This story takes place during the moments we're not shown on screen after The Hug in The Lying Detective. I would like to think that something along the lines of what I've written here took place before they went to get Sherlock some birthday cake.

    “I wish I was better at this. You deserve better from me.”

    John had regained his breath, and the tears that he’d finally let fall in front of another person began to dry on his cheeks. His nose was red, and his eyes were still full. He sniffed pointedly in that way he has; an attempt to rein in all of the pieces of himself that he’d just let me see. John Watson: Always trying to hold himself together as he was crumbling to bits.

But due to his drug issues and the tension between him and John things don't work as smoothly as everyone hoped they would, confronting Sherlock and all his friends with more of their demons than they would have liked to.

    Summary

    "Romantic entanglement while fulfilling for other people--"
    "--would complete you as a human being."

    John is right. Sherlock has no doubt about it at this point. It has taken him long enough to realise and longer still to accept it but, with all the data at hand, there is no longer room for any other conclusion.

    Yes, John is right and Sherlock has to do something about it.

    Summary

    “As I think I have explained to you many times before, romantic entanglement, while fulfilling for other people-”

    “Would complete you,” John said, “as a human being.”

    After all these years, John Watson was fairly certain he'd worked out all there was to know about Sherlock Holmes. Only he hadn't, and the new revelations leave him reeling. It's a long road to true happiness, filled with past resentments and gunshots, but if they try hard enough, the two of them just might make it.
