    Summary

    So,” John says, sounding breathless. His eyes are dark and his cheeks are pink, and Sherlock thinks he might be a little bit in love. His own body is entirely too warm to be normal. Is he getting a fever? God, he hopes not. This would be the worst possible time. “So,” John says again. “I know you’re married to your work and this isn’t your area. But. I was thinking, maybe you could re-evaluate that.”

    “Re-evaluate,” Sherlock repeats, in a strangled sort of voice.

    John tilts his head, licks his lips. “If you’re amenable.”

    Summary

    “Sherlock,” John murmurs, struggling to keep his voice level. Sherlock moves his lips down John’s chin, licks at the lobe of his ear before burying his face in the crook of John’s neck. “Oh, fuck, Sherlock, listen-“ Sherlock makes a vaguely interested noise, drags the length of his clothed erection over John’s.

    “We can’t, not here. Someone will see-“ his voice hitches as Sherlock’s cold fingers slip under his shirt, rest over his abdomen. “Your parents, I don’t know.”

    We shouldn’t be doing this anywhere, John thinks, but it’s kind of difficult to be logical when he has a lapful of Sherlock, with his slender legs on either side of his waist, his hands on his skin and his breath in his ear.

    Sherlock hums, not taking him seriously at all. “Not if you’re quiet."

    John may not be an expert, but he's pretty sure that shagging your ex is a bloody awful idea.

    (Shame the sex is so good, though.)

    Summary

    Red wine always makes him tipsier than usual and he finds himself saying, the words slurring a bit. “You know, I’ve got to ask. Do you always shoot cabbies for people you barely you know?”

    John meets his gaze over the rim of his glass, and there’s something there that Sherlock can’t pin down. “Not for everyone,” he says, meaningfully, pointedly, his smile all teeth.

    Sherlock feels faint. He’s flirting. Is he? Sherlock has to backpedal, get out of the hole he’s dug himself into.

    “You should come home with me tonight,” Oh god no, that’s the exact opposite of what he should be doing.

    John’s eyes widen and he blinks at him. “Er-“

    “I mean, 221B’s closer, it’s late,” he scrambles for words.  “And you’ll be staying there anyway. I mean- well, I’m assuming. Ms Hudson’s already put up the bed-“ Christ, he’s not being clever and sexy at all, he’s blabbering like an idiot-

    Summary

    No fewer than three times by the winter of 1883 had I heard Sherlock Holmes disparage the ways of lovers and their irrational tendencies toward writing letters. With this often and loudly-expressed opinion in mind, I was very surprised indeed to find a stack of unsent, unsealed letters in a drawer in his desk.
