    Summary

    Sehnsucht: longing, pining, yearning, craving, intensely missing. An individual’s search for happiness while coping with the reality of unattainable wishes.

    John is here now, yes, yes he is. He and Rosie are back home in 221B with Sherlock, safe where they belong... but why is there still a hole deep inside Sherlock, wide and gaping and consuming? Does John feel it too? And what will it take to fill it?

    Summary

    It had been one of the longest chases of his life, spanning three years and thousands of miles, but he had done it. Fifteen. The number swirled around Sherlock’s head. That was how many lives he had taken in the pursuit of his goal. A number so small, so insignificant, yet it represented the entirety of the upper echelon of Moriarty’s criminal organisation and three very complicated years of his life.

    Sherlock turned around and looked up. Then the world stopped. Someone stood in the door, someone who looked so familiar and so different at the same time. Sherlock narrowed his eyes critically. Rarely did his hallucinations change. They were normally the same image. John Watson, a phone in his hand, terror in his eyes. The last image.

    It wasn't a hallucination.

    Love is so short, but forgetting is so long - Pablo Neruda

    Of all the places to run into his ex, it had to be at a Tesco's when he's wearing his bloody pyjamas. At three in the fucking morning.

    (A Sherlock University AU...that has some pining!John to balance out our canon pining!Sherlock)

    Summary

    Written for this promt on the kinkmeme: "After Mary's death, John moves back into Baker Street, but is still upset at the loss of his wife and child. Eventually, he and Sherlock stumble into a sort of relationship, but it's more physical than anything and they don't talk about it.

    They especially don't talk during sex.

    If they are going to have sex, Sherlock notices the signs hours beforehand, and he prepares carefully. The lights are off, they're under the covers, he prepares himself using lots of lube so he can make it feel as much like a woman as he can, and he doesn't let himself make any noise so that, if John wishes, he can pretend that he's still with Mary."

    Summary

    When John starts acting suspicious in the run up to Christmas, lying about being at work and taking secret phone calls in the bathroom, Sherlock comes to seemingly the only conclusion, that John must be cheating on him. Unwilling to confront him, and apparently unable to make him stay, Sherlock does the only thing he can: leave before he is left. That is, until an unlikely phone call on Christmas Eve turns everything on its head...

    Summary

    John wonders how he had never seen this before, never noticed before, how happy Sherlock can look, and also how lonely.

    His friend looks resigned even as his cheeks tint with mirth, as if he is making the decision to take what happiness he can in this moment.

    John will remember making the same decision.

    Summary

    John has had feelings for his best friend for a very long time. Feelings he knows will never be returned. When John goes out to drown his sorrows in booze and girls, he finds himself falling into bed with a man for the first time instead. John doesn't expect Sherlock to think much of it, as he had never cared either way about people's sexualities. But when Sherlock finds out, things go downhill quickly, leaving John confused and alone. Can the two friends come back together after such an explosive coming out? If they do, will it be like before? Or might it be so very, very different?

    Summary

    "Sherlock always knew it was going to end.

    In fact, thinking back on it, he’s surprised it even managed to last this long. He was never really good at keeping things after all, and especially not at keeping people- not that he’s ever had the chance to even try with his reputation. And he’s fine with it, really, because what use was sentiment to him, when all it brought was hurt?

    So he doesn’t understand why he finds himself in his bed that night, unable to stop the tears streaming down his cheeks or the choked sobs of “John” that endlessly tear themselves from his throat… or his heart from feeling like it was being ripped from his chest.

    Because what is he going to do now, without John Watson to guide him?"

    His fingers tremble as he dials and he can’t force them steady. Familiar number, even though he hasn’t used it in two years. He isn’t even sure he should be calling it now, but she’d asked. She’d made him promise.

    Summary

    “Why? Why did you do it? Hmm…?” He takes a deep breath, waits, lets it out again. “Look at me.” There’s no denying him when he takes this tone. “Why did you kill him? Hmm…? For her? After…” A muscle twitches in the corner of John’s eye, and he clamps his jaw down tightly, swallows and sniffs a little before continuing. “For her? After everything she’s done?”

    “For you.” Before he can even stop himself. Just like that.
