    Summary



    “Did you see that?” Sherlock exclaims and looks back at John for confirmation. There’s such a mix of surprise and indignation and delight warring on his long face that John almost laughs. Then, delight winning, Sherlock grins at him.

    And John’s heart lurches up into his throat. “Sherlock, no!” he yells, but it’s like telling a child not to grab for a coveted toy.

    Sherlock steps back, takes a deep breath. Plunges into the wall. And disappears.

    Summary



    “Okay on your own for a bit?” He thrusts the wadded ball of his scene suit towards me.

    The question feels like a slap. I stiffen as the insult chases up the back of my neck and heats the tips of my ears.
    The hair on the back of my neck stands up as if I'm a dog raising its hackles at the first sign of aggression.

    Summary


    Robbie slides his hands over James’s arms, feeling the muscles contract
    to hold him tighter. “It’s a lamb, city boy.”

    “That’s still a sheep,” James murmurs in his ear. “And it’s not going to tell a soul
    what it sees me doing to you.”

    Summary


    As Robbie pushes himself up the stony slope, powering his steps with will more than
    with strength, a rock not much bigger than a marble rolls under his heel, and he slides.
    Clumps of earth and rocks clatter away from his feet, rattling down and down as if to
    emphasize just how far he’s going to fall.

    And then James grabs him, stopping his downward slide. He slips his arm around Robbie
    and pulls him in tight, steadying him. “You’re okay,” he says calmly. “I’ve got you.”

    Summary


    “Do you remember the first person you kissed?” James is lying on the bed. The only part of his body
    not sprawled flat is his head, which is propped up at almost a right angle on all three pillows.
    It makes Robbie’s neck hurt to look at him. but he can’t resist looking because…well…because James
    is lying sprawled on the bed.

    Summary


    A smile of delight tugging at the corners of his mouth, Robbie turned back to James.
    James’s extraordinary eyes were bright and sparkling, but he wasn’t looking at the rows
    of cherry trees or the incredible blooms. James was looking at him.

    Summary


    James sighs and stuffs his cigarettes back into his pocket. It’s been a long and tiring day, and intervening in what sounds like an argument between an angry, drunk couple isn’t the way to end it. Spending what's left of the evening in a warm, crowded pub, with Robbie forced to sit close, drinking a couple of pints, listening to Christmas carols on a tinny speaker…that’s what James had in mind. And then maybe being a little too pissed to drive so that Robbie insists he spend the night on the too-short-for-comfort couch. That's an even better plan.

    Summary



    The woman is radiant, so white and bright she’s almost blinding. Yet…there’s a blackness hovering around her. James can’t see it, but…he can feel it…a towering, pulsing, invisible malignance.

    And that’s when he knows what she is. That’s when he realizes…

    He puts his hand on Robbie’s shoulder, and his fingers dig in so tightly that Robbie grunts with pain. But James doesn’t let him go. “Run,” he says. “Run.”

    Summary



    Robbie looks at him without lifting his head from the headrest. “Shorter than normal, huh?” And he smiles.

    James’s breath catches in his lungs and holds there as his throat threatens to close and his heart tries to leap out of his chest. Because that smile is so arch and impish that it’s nearly lascivious. Nearly flirting.

    Summary



    “Look, Laura...if you’re wanting to have rumpy pumpy with some bloke,” Robbie says more testily than he’d intended, “I’d rather you’d just come out with it—”

    “You’re not listening,” she interrupts, a bit testy, too. “I don’t want to have ‘rumpy pumpy’ with some bloke. I want us to have rumpy pumpy with some bloke.”

    Summary



    “What’s that, then? We have a new case?” Robbie bends down, bracing his forearm on the back of James’s chair to lean in close and peer at the computer screen. The scent of early morning James—coffee, cigarette smoke, croissant—washes over him.

    “They’re bronze statues. A research team at Cambridge believes they’re by Michelangelo.” James scrolls back up through the story, past the couple of small photos to a large photo of two statues. “He’s the artist who painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel,” he adds.

    “I may not have the benefit of a Cambridge education, Inspector,” Robbie responds testily, “but I know who Michelangelo is.”

    James tilts his big head back and grins up at Robbie. Even partially upside down, his expression is cheeky, bluegreen eyes crackling with mischief.

    Summary



    James is already barefoot and coatless, aroused and shivering, when Laura appears in the doorway.

    She stops when she sees him standing in the narrow space between the kitchen counter and the wall, arms held stiffly at his sides to keep his fingers from dancing. “Good morning,” she murmurs. Her gaze lingers on his bare feet, making him curl his toes against the cold tile.

    “Morning, love,” Robbie says brightly, looking up from his paper. His smile is a burst of warmth in the already warm kitchen as he motions Laura in.

    Then he glances at James, says coolly, “Take off your trousers next.”

    Summary



    ”What’s ‘too funny’?” Sherlock asks.

    John laughs. “It’s believed that the chair’s purpose was to make it easy to have sex with multiple partners. Everybody agrees on one-on-one usage, but not how it would benefit the king if he had multiple partners at once.”

    Sherlock stares at the photo on the screen intently.

    John smirks at him. “Got any ideas?”

    Sherlock gives the photo another careful once over. “Sorry,” he says, his voice droll, “not my area.”

    Summary


    The only uncovered flat surface in the room is the bed. Even on John’s bedside table, the alarm clock and his computer sit atop stacks of the books he unpacked yesterday. He hadn’t intended to unpack books, not until he’d actually cleared a path to the bookcase, but...he’d been hoping he’d find his missing pants at the bottom of the box.

    Possibly, the state of the room says something deep and existential about the state of his life, the boxes both clutter and metaphor for the stagnation through which he wades everyday. Since he moved back into 221B, he’s felt as though he’s in limbo. His life and his heart, still packed up in boxes. Balanced, precariously, on a knife edge, waiting. Waiting. For what, he doesn’t know.

    Summary


    The movie ends. On the screen, the couple kisses, happily ever after, and the credits roll.

    Robbie’s not really drunk enough for his tongue to be so loose, but once the ball is rolling in his mind, he can’t seem to stop himself. He twists a bit on the couch so that he can see James’s face clearly and asks, “Have you ever had a friend with benefits, then?”

    James shakes his head by simply rolling it back and forth on the back of the couch, his neck still boneless and loose. “No. I’d need a friend first.”

    Summary


    It’s Mycroft’s bloody fault, pure and simple, that John’s sitting on a sofa in bloody Buckingham Palace with bees buzzing in his bloodstream and a mind that’s turned as thick as marmalade.

    It had seemed odd, the way Sherlock’s gaze had dipped, the way his voice had lowered and sounded musing when he said, ‘Dominatrix’.

    And Mycroft had pounced on it, smirking. ‘Don’t be alarmed. It’s to do with sex’.

    Sherlock had drawn himself up tall and straight and had retorted, ‘Sex doesn’t alarm me’.

    Mycroft’s rejoinder had been quick and snide. ‘How would you know’?

    And something bright and crystalline had exploded at the base of John’s brain. Arousal, hot and treacherous, had blossomed in his belly. And the desire, the need, to be the first to run hot, greedy hands all over Sherlock’s pale skin had erupted, unbidden and unexpected, pushing out all other thoughts.
