In the five times…. +1 style. John and Sherlock sleep together many times before they actually have sex.
The first time it happened was after a case.

I’m here (barely)! I’m alive (barely)!
Despite this newest fic-rec being a short read, I like what seemed to be a slow build up to end (quite literally *snickers to self*). The story’s told from John’s perspective - sweet, loveable, emotionally-constipated John Watson. Sherlock’s feelings are overt to everyone but him, and it’s a treat to see John not only handle John’s own feelings, but also come to realize Sherlock’s. The story is rife with lovely moments from John watching Sherlock’s sleeping form to Sherlock’s concern over John’s mental well-being. Five Times… is a wonderful combination of serious, sweet, and funny, and I had a bit of a laugh to myself when I read this particular moment:
Once Sherlock was down to his pants, John grabbed a towel from the bathroom and dried him off.
“You want to change those yourself?” John gestured.
Sherlock just pulled off his pants in front of John and tossed them on the floor.
“Okay. Not really what I meant, but that’s fine.”
I mean, just imagine all the possible facial expressions Martin Freeman could convey at this particular moment.
