God bless this fandom.
John forgets, some days. He forgets that he once again requires the help of his cane to get around; forgets that their flat is quiet not just because a certain consulting detective has locked himself in his mind palace; forgets that there’s no one waiting on the couch to deduce how his day at the clinic went; forgets that Sherlock is gone. John forgets, some days, that he now makes tea for one.
AU: Moriarty succeeds in burning Sherlock’s heart out.
some rainy days, I could swear you’re walking through our door
still, I look up - all that meets my stare is nothing at all.
Contrary to popular belief, Sherlock Holmes actually does drink.
It’s very rare, of course, but he knows that he kills more brain cells with cocaine, therefore having a glass of wine or a highball of gin or whiskey isn’t going to do much more damage. He never picked up the habit that much compared to the times he spent with John. Usually they would indulge in a drink after a long case before passing out in their respective beds until the sun was high above the sky the following day. Sometimes John would get Sherlock to relax in a glass of wine or two for a special occasion, though he’d have to be very persuasive in his wording. Really, it wasn’t all that often these times existed, but Sherlock Holmes did drink.
And despite being completely at the end of his wits on the topic of John, New Years Eve was a perfect time to have a date with a glass (or two or three or maybe even four) of wine. Actually, the topic of John was the perfect reason to engage in a rendezvous with alcohol.
Plus, Mycroft had a nice collection of red wine (which, of course, was always better than white).
It starts, of course, with a visitor.
oh my gosh
oh my gosh
oh my gosh
OH MY GOSH

au sherlock ✦ mycroft hires mary morstan to look after john
↳ “you came into my life at a very strange time.” [asked by wotcher-doctor]
To me, this SCREAMS of the Mary/John relationship from The Progress of Sherlock Holmes, such as…
John knew what he was doing, marrying Mary. He was building a support network for the pain I would inevitably cause him. For all her faults, she is better for him than I am. She leans forward and kisses him. He buries his face in her shoulder, and she holds him. She rocks him. She is made of comfort and I of thoughtlessness and indifference.
This fandom is so adorable, I don’t even know if I should be laughing or crying <3
