It is all that matters

I wanted to write about Sherlock before John. The topic of asexuality will come up shortly.

Pairing: None.
Warnings: Mentions of sex, drug use, and possibly violence.
Rating: Teen and up audiences
Summary: ‘Caring is not an advantage Sherlock,’ Mycroft tells his little brother for the first but not last time and holds his gaze, as if making sure his wise words have come across before turning his attention back to the chapter before him.
‘Love then. Is it important?’ Sherlock asks, curious as he is.
Mycroft doesn’t answer.
Author’s Notes: I wanted to make drabbles about Sherlock's time before John. So here it is.

Fic: Thanks for the cigarettes.

Rating: G

Length: ca 1300
Notes: This is my entry for this year’s Asexy April, but I forgot to put it up here.

Summary: A missing scene between The Sign of Three and His Last Vow about what happened when Sherlock left the wedding.

He just needed a break, some air, some distance from… people.

Summary: After breakfast, during which Sherlock tucked into his scrambled eggs with great enthusiasm – he must have been starved after his one and a half day fast – John installed himself in his chair with The Times crossword, while Sherlock sat across from him with his laptop. Every now and then John looked up to watch his friend’s face. His pale features glowed in the light cast by the laptop screen and John found himself appreciating their exotic charisma.
Author’s notes: written for the wonderful and totally lovely rifleman_s. Avid reader, insightful commenter and great friend. Thank you, rifleman_s, for all your staunch support of my fics and those of all the other great writers here in the Sherlock fandom. I’ve worked very hard to get in a lot of things I knew, or thought, or assumed you would like in a hopefully not too obvious way. *hugs*

Summary: Excerpt from the critically acclaimed book THE EMPTY HOUSE by John H Watson:

If you were living in London in the spring of 2015 you probably remember hearing about that bizarre night, March 30th, when Ronnie Adair died in the basement of his mother’s house.

The crime itself was fascinating enough at the time, but for me the thrill of those days lies not in details of the murder but in the events the murder set in motion.

Read The Adventure of the Empty House on AO3

A/N: This is my rebooted retelling of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's story, "The Adventure of the Empty House."

If you are able to suspend disbelief and accept that Sherlock shot the bomb in the pool and Moriarty got away, and that after that events progressed similarly to ACD's original "The Final Problem," and also that asexual!Sherlock and heterosexual!John were, somehow, in love with each other at the time of Sherlock's disappearance…then this works as a stand alone story.

If that seems like a stretch to you, then you are more than welcome to read the entire series of five multi-chaptered works totalling ~60k words:



Series summary: These are my own sequels to BBC's Sherlock series one, started before series two aired and consequently AU as of January 2011. (That is to say, Moffat and I go our separate ways after The great Game.)

I set out to explore how a romantic relationship between an asexual Sherlock Holmes and heterosexual John Watson might come about and progress. My goal is to stay as true to the portrayal of John and Sherlock in series one as possible, and I draw heavily from ACD canon.

WIP: Series: This is where I began. Book III: Perfer et Obdura, chapter 11

Title: Perfer et Obdura, chapter 10
Status of work: WIP. Series: This is where I began. Book III
Characters: Sherlock, John, Mycroft, OMC’s, OFC’s
Warnings: severe mental distress experienced by a minor. No further warnings apply
Rating: NC17
Beta: the lovely susako. I want to thank her very much for her help and advice. The wonderful stardust_made helped me out with some very difficult parts in this chapter. Any remaining mistakes are mine of course
Word count: approx. 8,300
Author's note: in this series I’m exploring Sherlock’s past and his relationship with Mycroft, from his earliest beginnings up to the time he ends up sharing the flat with John at Baker Street 221B. In Book II Sherlock had to learn to deal with the vagaries of the world. Still those were nothing compared to what he will encounter during the next few years. I’d be very happy if you’d join me for the trip again. I’ll try to update once a week or every two weeks
Summary: The high he experiences when near the end of the last term he manages to extract a packet out of his neighbour’s trouser pocket during yet another excruciating Sunday service, nearly surpasses the satisfaction he feels when he sits puffing one of his prizes in his hideout in the copse later that afternoon.
