After Mary's death, John struggles. In the process of trying to make sense of his shattered family, he nearly misses the time when Sherlock needs him the most. As Sherlock speeds closer to his own self-destruction, John tries to pull himself together in time to save them both.
this fic is for @rebuilding221B on Tumblr, who bid on me for the Fandom Trumps Hate 2020 auction, and gave me this lovely prompt for a fix-it fic for the lying detective. I've been given the a-okay to post this in chapters as I write it, so I'll try to keep it updated regularly.

He has been on the road for two years, and he is exhausted.
He’s almost accepted that he will never see London (John) again—almost. But then there are nights like tonight, where he is weak, and all he can think of is the warmth of the flat they once shared, the crackle of the fire in the hearth, the teasing smile playing at the corner of John’s lips, the boxes of half-eaten Chinese takeaway balanced precariously in their laps. He aches at the memory of it, at the realisation that it is something he may never experience again.
