I found my friend standing there, up on that bridge one night. Standing right in the middle of the highway. He had lost hope, too. He thought there was no going back. But there’s always a way back. A way home. What he did, he didn’t think he could make it right, but I found him there. He was lost and had nowhere to go. He was standing on the median - Alone, hopeless. He was my good friend and he was up on that bridge thinking he didn’t have anyone left.

On the tenth day of Christmas TJLC gave to me…

You Give Me Fever (michi_thekiller | 16,122 | NC-17)

Thou givest fever when we kisseth, fever with thy flaming youth
Fever I’m afire; fever, yea, I burn forsooth
"He’s the kind of boy you want to take apart."

School For Scandal (rubberbird | 222,199 | NC-17)

Sherlock lusts from afar. John tries hard to fool himself.

Celestial Bodies Series (songlin | 18,907 | NC-17)

They watch the omegas in their class miss a week at a time for their heats, or turn up pregnant, or drop out entirely, and see even the nicest, brightest boys and girls get rude and dumb and aggressive after presenting as alphas. Privately, they wonder what the rush is about.

John and Sherlock are eighteen years old and still haven’t presented as alpha or omega, though they’re both sure they know how their cards have been dealt. That is their first mistake.

Feel the Tide (positivelymeteoric | 45,314 | R)

Things John Watson doesn’t expect to do when he transfers to a new school:
A) Befriend his (possibly) mad roommate.
B) Investigate a particularly nasty streak of murders with his (most likely) mad roommate.
C) Fall slightly (or not so slightly) in love with his (definitely) mad roommate.
D) All of the above.

A Finger Slip (pawtal | 46,637 | PG)

"You may be the most interesting person I’ve ever met."
"We haven’t met."
"A minor detail."

How to be brave (stillaseeker | 8,005 | R)

Love is so short, but forgetting is so long - Pablo Neruda

Of all the places to run into his ex, it had to be at a Tesco’s when he’s wearing his bloody pyjamas. At three in the fucking morning.

Ego Versus Eros (Lunavere | 23,531 | R)

John Watson had heard warning after warning about taking one of Professor Holmes’s courses. He knew he should stay away if only for the sake of his grades. However, when he reads the description for the module “Proper Criminal Investigation and Forensic Techniques,” he cannot help but enroll himself in the course and merely hope beyond hope that he doesn’t regret his decision.

Surprisingly enough, though, Professor Sherlock Holmes takes an immediate interest in him, although whether that is good or bad is up for question.

Saving Sherlock Holmes (earlgreytea68 | 139,393 | R)

Sherlock Holmes, schoolboy. Yeah, that basically sums it up.

Common Grounds (couchbarnacle | 66,875 | R)

John Watson is working at Holmes Manor for the summer and is caught up in the whirlwind that is Sherlock Holmes.

The Clash of Storm and Sea (quinnanderson | 19,318 | NC-17)

Music School AU. The first time John heard Sherlock play, he knew he was done for.
