Sherlock x Reader: Reunited This Christmas (Part Two To Lonely This Christmas).


Masterlist

Part 1: Lonely This Christmas

thesmellofasinnamonroll asked:

For the Sherlock x reader lonely this Christmas story, will there be a part two? It’s so good I don’t want it to end!!!!

A/N: Again, thank you so much! I thought I’d have a happy ending to this so I hope you like it. x



It was that time of year. Snow was falling, Christmas adverts were on the TV, people were piling in at the shops in hope of finding the perfect Christmas present, and little children were excited for the arrival of Father Christmas. You were very excited as it meant that you got to spend time with family and friends. However, as you walked down Baker Street, you couldn’t help but having a desire of entering your former home of 221B and greeting your former loved one. You still loved the man but you thought it was best if you separated. John and Mary had told you that he was in no fit state. You had called Mrs Hudson last week and she told you that she didn’t think he’d make it through Christmas Day. You thought the they were exaggerating though. You were sure Sherlock was just fine because he’s Sherlock! You leaving was probably something minor to him.

 

 

After opening presents on the morning of Christmas, you went over to John and Mary’s. You didn’t attend last year in fear that Sherlock would be there but they had assured you that he wouldn’t be there this year. You were sat with them in their living room after dinner. Their child was asleep in her cot upstairs while you chatted downstairs. Somehow, you got into a conversation about Sherlock.

“He’s not coping well,” Mary told you.

“I’m worried about him,” John sighed. “I know that Sherlock can be off and strange at time because that’s just who he is. But I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t make it through January. There’s nothing I can do. He shuts me out…” John started choking up.

You sighed. “I could see him today,” You said. “I know it’s Christmas but…”

“If you wouldn’t mind, Y/N,” Mary said.

“Ill go now,” You said. “Thank you for dinner. I’ll come back later if I’m able.” You got your stuff together and left. “Merry Christmas.”

 

 

Mrs Hudson had friends at her flat this Christmas. After greeting her, she led you upstairs.

“Sherlock,” You called. “It’s freezing in here,” You muttered.

“Y/N?” He said quietly. He was sat in his chair. He had a beard and longish hair. He was skinny and looked like a skeleton. The flat was a mess and you knew that Mrs Hudson hadn’t cleaned in a while. But Sherlock looked like a completely different man.

You gasped. “Look at the state of you,” You said as you rushed over to him and you threw your arms around you.

“I’m so sorry,” He said and broke down in tears.

“Sh, shhhh, it’s okay. I’ll run you a bath and while you’re in the bath, I’ll go to the shop and buy some food because I’m sure you don’t have any in.”

 

 

You returned with food and tea bags. You was surprised that the corner shop was open but the owner told you that many people came for last minute items on the day. Sherlock had come out of the bath and he had also shaved. You had bought him a sandwich and a chocolate bar which you made him eat. You’d also made him a cup of tea. He still looked malnourished but at least he’d eaten something.

“Your hair is too long,” You said smiling as you ran your hands through it.

“What did I do to ever deserve you?” He asked.

“Stop feeling guilty.” You sighed. “I’m here now. I know it will take time, but do you think we could try again? I’ve missed you and I didn’t realise how much I had until I saw you like this.”

“You haven’t…”

“No I haven’t got a boyfriend.”

“I thought you may have started again.”

“No I haven’t. I hadn’t got over you.”

“Then I’d like to try again. And… I’m sorry for hurting you.”

“It’s okay.”

“Merry Christmas, Y/N.”

“Merry Christmas, Sherlock.”

AURORA - Half The World Away (Oasis Cover)

Here is the full version of Aurora’s cover of Oasis’s Half The World Away, which is taken from the John Lewis Christmas advert 2015. Aurora Aksnes is a 18 year old girl from Bergen, Norway. She strives to write music that can inspire people, through idiosyncratic tales of struggle, love, and all that lies in between.

I would like to leave this city
This old town don’t smell too pretty and
I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
And when I leave this island I’ll book myself into a soul asylum
And I can feel the warning signs running around my mind

So here I go still scratching around the same old hole
My body feels young but my mind is very old
So what do you say?
You can’t give me the dreams that are mine anyway
You’re half the world away
Half the world away
Half the world away
I’ve been lost I’ve been found but I don’t feel down.

And when I leave this planet, you know I’d stay but I just can’t stand it and
I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
And if I could leave this spirit, I’ll find me a hole and I’ll leave in it
And I can feel the warning signs running around my mind

So here I go still scratching around in the same old hole
My body feels young but my mind if very old
So what do you say?
You can’t give me the dreams that are mine anyway
You’re half the world away
Half the world away
Half the world away
I’ve been lost I’ve been found but I don’t feel down

No I don’t feel down
No I don’t feel down
No I don’t feel down
I don’t feel down
I don’t feel down
I don’t feel down
