    Summary

    People were cruel. Manipulative and selfish. All they wanted was to strip him of everything he once had.

    A dream for a better life, small though it had been, they'd crushed. A safe place to call home? They'd caused it to crumble around him. They stole everything, even his own body and soul.

    They’d just take, and take, and take.

    A soulmate is someone who is supposed to heal that pain. Someone who wouldn’t steal, but instead give. Give in such a way that it might allow him to pick up those broken shards of whoever it was he was meant to be, and help him slowly stitch them together again. Even if a few pieces were missing, and no matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t find them, a soulmate wasn’t going to judge. They would love him despite his missing parts. Even if what remained was fractured or barely holding together. A soulmate…? He didn’t deserve someone like that.
    What they took, he gave, what they did, he allowed…perhaps not for all the wrong reasons, but all the same, he never tried to stop them. Not like it mattered. An incomplete, tainted, damaged person like him didn’t deserve to meet anyone like that.
    This is what he believed.
    Even if fate believed otherwise.

    Summary

    Sherlock is home, he and John are returning to cases, and all's right with the world--right? But a series of minor mishaps and injuries makes two things very clear to his friends and family: first, Sherlock's time away wasn't the grand adventure everyone has assumed it was; and second, that time has left Sherlock with a legacy that's bleeding into his life today. Sherlock is Not Okay, and it's not going away.

    EDIT: I have now made this part of a series, since I am going to be doing occasional one-offs in this same universe.

    WORKS INSPIRED BY THIS ONE: The lovely Aunt_Didi has begun a podfic of this work--it can be found on both of our dashboards.
