John's first six months without Sherlock are the worst thing he's ever experienced, and he's fully prepared for the next to be just as hard. But he's surprised when Sherlock comes back and changes all of that, though he really shouldn't be.
Sherlock opens his mouth, clearly about to argue, or apologize, or speak at all, and isn't that the strangest thing? Sherlock speaking, living. John can't function, can't think, can't breathe. He just turns and rushes out the room, slamming the door behind him, stomping hurriedly down the stairs. Mrs. Hudson opens her door and sticks her head out.
“Where are you going?” Mrs. Hudson asks in concern, touching her hand to her cheek. “Oh, John, I tried to warn you, I did. It's a good thing, isn't it, him being back? Oh, don't go, John, just-”
He slams the door, not even throwing her a glance, sucking in air as soon as his feet hit the pavement. And here he is again, just as he was not too long before, having gotten everything he's wanted for six months, not being able to handle it.

Sherlock has trained himself to come on command - untouched - using two keywords. One to get hard and the other to orgasm.
After spending a month secretly perfecting his technique, he shares the results with John. Naturally, John wants to know what the keywords are which Sherlock refuses to give him. He doesn't want anyone having that much power over him. Not even John.
John is offended by this - although deep down, he knows that Sherlock's right - and determines to figure out the trigger words with or without his help.
Sherlock tells John that he'll never figure it out because Sherlock's smarter than most people, John included. So John decides right then and there that not only will he figure out the words, but he'll use them at the first opportunity to teach Sherlock a lesson.
With great power comes great responsibility.
It's only been two weeks since Eurus Holmes disrupted their lives when Mycroft sends John and Sherlock to Cambridge to pose as an engaged couple at a wedding show in the hopes of solving six unsolved deaths...
The word green was used to convey a great many things. Illness. Envy. Inexperience.
Standing there amidst Janine's chattering bridesmaids, watching Sherlock furrow his brow and study fabric swatches, watching him smile and simper and flirt, John thought it a remarkably apt colour choice. Because he felt quite sick to his stomach, he feared the source of said sickness might very well be jealousy, and he had absolutely no idea at all what to do about it.
Or: Sherlock needs to fake a relationship for a case. He doesn't ask John.

John Watson has always been perfectly in charge of his life, thank you very much. But an intriguing murder, seven suspects, an alcoholic sister and Sherlock's new interest in him - will it be enough to make him realise what 'being in charge' really means.
