Sherlock AU: after escaping the MI6 mission in Poland, Sherlock comes back to learn that John’s marriage didn’t work out and the man lives back at Baker Street, with questions still unanswered and the tension still unresolved
Where you used to be, there’s now a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime and falling in at night.
Post Reichenbach AU requested anonymously: Sherlock comes back after two years only to find out that Mycroft has been keeping from him the fact that John is dead, and died in such an ordinary way; something Sherlock could have stopped from happening if he was there.
Amnesia AU requested by farina-d-amica: Post fall, Sherlock is found working in a restaurant with no recollection of anything before the past 2 years. After John attacks him, leaving him confused, he embraces the past he can’t remember.
“So, like – What should we do?” Harry asks, shifting around on the couch and tucking a stray lock of hair behind his ear. He seems nervous, fidgeting with his rings and darting his eyes around the room. Someone off-screen says something that the microphone doesn’t quite pick up, and Harry rolls his eyes before responding with, “I know that we’ve done this a thousand times before, you arse. It’s never been just the two of us for something like this though. Like – A documentary is different than a five minute interview.”
“Well it’s not exactly just the two of us now, is it?” Niall laughs, walking into the shot and pressing a fleeting kiss to Harry’s cheek before taking a seat on the other side of the couch.
The meaning of his words is made apparent right away when three more bodies throw themselves into view, scrambling over each other to take their places on the couch as well.
