This is how I wear my hair now. It elevates me from 'one of many fat, middle-aged chicks' to 'that one fat, middle-aged chick who wears the weird bun-thing with ridiculous flowers'

    Summary

    Green.

    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.

    Really, really good.

    A credible example of how the story could continue, post S4.

    Summary

    “When did I get so old,” John whispers, because anything else seems too much.

    “When I left you, I imagine.” Sherlock murmurs, presses John’s hand between his. “When I destroyed everything good in your life.”

    John shakes his head, and lifts his other hand to press atop Sherlock’s. “You had your reasons. I was angry for a long time, but I’m not anymore—not about that. I’m angry at your brother more than you. And as for—the rest, you know I don’t blame you for that. It wasn’t your fault, Sherlock. It wasn’t your fault.”

    “As your feeling old and useless isn’t yours.”

    John’s chest feels tight. These are the most real words they’ve said to one another in months. Usually it’s case related chat, or the weather, or light banter about something on the telly. They haven’t talked like this since Sherlock’s birthday. They don’t talk like this. They never talk like this.

    John doesn’t want to talk anymore.

    He wants to…

    He wants…

    Oh.

    He wants.

    Oh dear god, how he wants.

    For the first time in what feels like years he WANTS.

    This whole college gig would be hard even enough without Winry being the best wingwoman Ed never wanted… and without the blog. Definitely without the blog.

    Summary

    Sherlock is fairly certain that John has taken to flirting with him of late, but can't be entirely certain of it. At least, not until a case takes them into a forest, along with Lestrade's team and something happens that will change everything about their lives...

    I don't know how too describe how this fix made me feel. Relieved? At peace? I don't... it's sweet and lovely and, for me at least, emotionally safe? I'm not doing it justice.
