            “Right..” There's a quiet, protective move to hold the sleeping, fledgling Gabriel closer to his chest, “No reason y’know, just.. curious.” hes half bouncing on his toes to keep the young archangel in his arms asleep and half doing it out of the sheer awkwardness of being faced with what he is to become.

I just wanted to congratulate you on finishing your brilliant, crazy, beautiful, amazing epic! You've worked on it so long. I remember starting binge reading it last summer, then waiting patiently for each new chapter, and every new one was a joy and a delight (and sometimes, more than sometimes, completely heartbreaking, but in the best of ways) I'm sad that it's coming to an end, but it truly has been a fantastic journey and I cannot thank you enough!! You're absolutely brilliant ðŸŒŸðŸŒŸðŸŒŸðŸŒŸðŸŒŸðŸŒŸí ½

Ahh, thank you so much! <3 It’s been a very rewarding 330k. Not quite done yet, there’s still about 20k worth of epilogue to get through, just to tie off all the loose ends. John needs to be solidly center stage to really wrap this thing up, he’s been a bit of a bit player in this last part. The story of how he starts to be okay again is the one that still needs telling. But I’m gonna let myself breathe a bit before I fling myself down that rabbit hole.

And for now, I’ll thank you very much for reading and I hope everyone who’s been with me this far has enjoyed the story as much as I have.

Dear @saucefactory I was planning on a Cop AU for Gradence for a while now, but have been busy mastering the art of procrastination. Then I saw this post and your comment neath it and thought “IT IS TIME!”


SO MARRIED it hurts every fibre of my being. Also, canonically, Watson has been trying on clothes in front of Sherlock, and Sherlock has been sharing (stealing) clothes with (from) Watson. (Probably even getting more than a feel and a whiff). And, how Sherlock lets go ‘cause staring into those beautiful eyes makes him weak. And that lil smile of Watson’s. So beautiful *cries*.
