It just sat there, on the soft, rumpled surface of the comforter that lay over his bed.
The white plastic plunger. The clear, millimetre-marked canister, filled with an equally diamond-hued liquid. The long steel needle, glittering dangerously, daring those who looked at it to fall into it's hellish trap.
If it was good enough for him...
Dusty blue orbs regarding this instrument of injection in front of him. He didn't even remember how he came across it, but he knew that it sat with him now, whispering to him, like some shadow of a long-ago demon, desperate for attention once more.
His eyes hurt...too much crying. Eyelashes were marred by drops of salt water, as tears continued to stream forth. His breath came at a steady rhythm, with a tremble, and the horrible weight of grief on every lengthy sigh.

"(L/N), I'd like to speak with you," the Director of the FBI calls to you as you pass her office's door.
You gnaw at your lip as you step into the room. What did you do? Had she heard you talking to your teammates yesterday about wanting to request a couple weeks off for vacation and is going to chastise you for it? You'd been anxious to get back to London ever since your last meeting with Sherlock three weeks ago.
"Yes?" you ask, afraid of her reason for wanting you.
"Please close the door and have a seat," she smiles as she gestures toward the chair in front of her desk. You comply and cross your legs nervously as you sit.
"You've been very helpful these last weeks, solving many cases, cold and fresh..."
You release a breath you didn't know you were holding. Good, no scolding. Yet.

Ferrous even. Mad that he had done this to him. Mad that he had left him alone for three bloody years.Forever3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Mad that he loved him after it was all said and done.
"John..?" Sherlock's voice was barely audible being just above a whisper.
John ignored him.
"John? Please..." Sherlock sounded pitiful.
John turned the page to the paper. He was going to make Sherlock suffer as long as he could. He was alone for three years. He was depressed, alone, and pissed all that time. Depressed his best friend had killed himself. Alone in the world he didn't want to be in anymore. Pissed that Sherlock had done this to him.
Sherlock stood and moved over to John, snatching the paper out of his hands.
"Listen to me..." He begged, his eyes sad and a little annoyed.

The detective was sprawled across the couch in a lazy pose, browsing intently through the newest issue of "Cosmopolitan" which became recently a hobby of his, much to John's dismay, since he usually fell victim to Sherlock's experiments that were as romantic as they were eccentric.
The main topic of the magazine (apart from a guide how to choose a fitting pair of high heels to your miniskirt) was how to win your crush's heart. According to the author of the article, the best way to do it was to go on an exciting date to the cinema. Sherlock found it really peculiar movies always seemed re
GhostsSometimes John sees him.Ghosts3 years ago in Drama More Like This
He catches a hint of a black coat disappearing around the corner and his body is screaming to run after him, until his brain catches up and he realizes it is nothing but another ghost.
The feeling comes whenever he sees a blue scarf slung over a chair at a restaurant and he wants to sit down and tell waiters that they are not on a date, when a blonde girl returns to the seat and he remembers.
It comes over him whenever he sees a man with dark hair and cheekbones you could cut yourself on, as Adler put it. Whenever he hears someone showing off their wit and brilliance. It comes whenever he sees a skull or a game of Cluedo.
Molly, Lestrade, Donovan and Anderson all have ghosts surrounding them, making it hard for him to look them in the eye. He hides from them, barricades himself in his apartment, but there are more ghosts there.

"I can't find my sheet."
"Put on some clothes!" John stared at his laptop, he didn't dare to look up again, even as Sherlock was laughing.
"I just wanted to ask you, if you have seen my sheet somewhere. But as a result of your reaction I deduce that you haven't. You are ashamed to see your flatmate naked, or possibly like it, because you blushed and you can hardly keep yourself from looking at me again."
"Would you please shut up, Sherlock?"
"I'm right, am I not?"
"Damn, no, Sherlock! You aren't right! And I don't like this experiment very much! I'm begging you, put on some clothes!"
"Why do you think it's an experiment, John? I'm just looking for my sheet, but I can't find it. Maybe Mrs. Hudson put it away..."
"Yeah, maybe." John grumbled. "Go and ask her!"

Two and a Half Months Ago...
From a dark corner outside of the British Parliament Building, a pair of brown eyes peered into the moonlit path before the front entryway. The path was lined with military men as if the Queen herself had ordered it to be so. After the attempted raid the week before though, it should have been seen as an inevitability.
A sigh accompanied the eyes at the sight of the military men. They looked suddenly disappointed at what the sight meant.
The man the eyes belonged to raised a handheld radio near his mouth. "Fili, Kili," he whispered harshly, "the mission's being aborted."
Another male voice came back over the radio: "After all the preparations?! Why?!"
"Too many guards," he replied. "We'll have to try again another night."

He had to. They needed him back in heaven. They needed his guidance. He had already been on Earth for far too long, he needed to return to the other angels. John knew that, yet he still refused to let Sherlock leave. The angel merely gave him a sorrowful smile. Tears streamed down John’s face. Sherlock wiped away a tear with his thumb.
“I have to John.”
“But I don’t want you to.”
The light around them grew brighter and warmer, its beautiful fingers grabbing onto Sherlock. John held Sherlock’s coat tighter. No, he wasn’t going anywhere, not on John’s watch. He had already lost to many people he cared for, he wasn’t going to lose the one he cared for the most.
“I know. I don’t want to either, but others need me.”

John rolled his eyes.
"No, you're not. You've just got a cold," he explained patiently, pointing his finger at Sherlock to show who was to blame for the whole situation. "I told you not to run around the flat barefooted and only in your dressing gown!"
Sherlock sneezed loudly three times in a row and then huffed with annoyance.
"My head is pounding, I can't think!" He protested while wrinkling his nose in indignation.
John sighed heavily.
"No wonder, you have a high fever. Just stay in bed and wait till the medicines I gave you will kick in."
"I won't, staying in bed is boring!" Sherlock stated defiantly, sat up and folded his arms on his chest.
"Sherlock, lie down!" A note of warning could be heard in John's voice. He used that tone to his most problematic patients at the hospital.
"No!" Holmes pouted like a stubborn child, ostentatiously not looking at John.

Memories of the girl, dying in his hands appears in his mind, so bright, like a photo, even with closed eyes the picture is visible, like someone pauses the film and makes Sherlock watch it again and again.
The door suddenly opens and John's figure enters the room with dirty shirt in his hands. Sherlock looks at his reflection in the mirror and notices that his friend's movements are sharp and sudden. The death of a the child has overbalanced him too.

"I really think there's only one human being in this room: me. But in any case I should cause I'm normal."

John's slate eyes flickered to try and ward off the seemingly unceasing flow of sorrow and confusion; tears still filled his sockets and ran down his cheeks. He felt them falling onto his outstretched arm, but the will to move had been pushed out of his mind.
"...what are you doing here?" he asked, only vaguely hearing himself, like his voice had detached from his body and was wandering far off into the London night. He wagered it was trying to find a body that was still living, rather then residing in a walking corpse that rarely used its mouth at all.
The ghost of his former best friend said nothing at first, only walking slowly into the pitiful space of a bedroom and sitting on the bed in front of him. John finally felt his eyes roam, like they had so many times before, and they always found a beautiful place

The nightmares had certainly woken him up, screaming into his pillow for soldiers lost, but there was something that was keeping him from drifting off again.
From his little room upstairs, John woke to hear the sounds of Sherlock stirring in his sleep. He sat on the edge of his bed, head in his hands, just for a few seconds so that he could slowly wake up before investigating further.
Sherlock didn't even try sleeping most nights; he'd just stay up with his cases, or his experiments. After almost a week of sleepless nights, he'd cave in. Rarely in his own bed. John, if ever he got up in the night, which was likely, would often find Sherlock asleep in the oddest of places. Most unusually on the sofa, but other times, his flat-mate would be snoring gently on the kitchen floor, perhaps not quite making it to the fridge or the sink, and letting his tiredness overrule his defiance

Sherlock groaned and threw himself onto the couch, still in his dressing gown and slippers.
Being alone was so boring.
John was out, shopping, and Mrs Hudson went visiting her sister and wouldn't be back till Monday.
He needed something to distract him from the fact that it had been three days since he solved his last case. Playing the violin didn't help, the crossword puzzle in `The Times´ was already solved (hadn't taken more than seven minutes, five if his pen wouldn't had stopped writing) and Mrs Hudson had hidden his skull.
He wished John was back, but then he would have to go shopping for milk, and that was even more boring.
He decided that watching TV couldn't hurt, and it was funny to predict the plot of that crappy soap operas that were broadcasted in the morning.
And maybe there was something interesting in the news.
After a short time of canal hopping he knew that there was a drought at Southern Africa and that a third class actress was two timing her husb
Meet The FamilyThe doorbell rang rather impatiently, breaking the rare but comfortable silence that had come over the living room of 221b Baker Street. There wasn't a case that needed Sherlock's assistance to preoccupy the detective today, and it had taken John a good 15 minutes to talk him out of experimenting with noxious chemicals in their kitchen sink. The detective had finally decided to borrow (read: hack into) John's laptop, while the good doctor had given up with daytime T.V in favour of settling down in his armchair with one of the many books that were steadily collecting dust on the cluttered shelves.Meet The Family3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The bell kept ringing incessantly. Mrs Hudson could be heard shuffling around downstairs, then letting out a surprised noise as whoever was on the other side of the door apparently barged past her. Both heads snapped up at the sound of several footsteps running up the stairs before two boys with curly black hair stumbled over themselves and into the living room looking as if they'd ran a mile.

He was drugged. He had to be drugged. The room felt like it was spinning and all the sound he could hear was nothing more than gibberish underwater.
He felt ill and dizzy and uncomfortable on all accounts. And the room was annoyingly dark. He could feel himself bound by smothering blankets and if the increasing beeping was anything to go by he was hooked to a heart monitor.
Ghastly machine. He wondered why it hadn't woken him earlier. The dull throb at the back of his skull was the most obvious culprit. Concussion most likely. He would have to ask John. For once in his life he was protesting brainwork.

"Why do you want to know it?" he replied with a questionmark above his head.
"...I´m just curious."
"Ok... well, I don´t really believe in them. No one ever saw an angel and there´s no proof that they exist. You know, I´m a scientist. I just "believe" in something which can be proofed" Sherlock explained.
John didn´t answer, he just nodded and continued to write his blog.
Four years later, Sherlock DID believe in one angel - the one named John.
John wasn´t in the flat, so Sherlock was able to prepare everything.
The flat was tidied up and clean. Like, REALLY clean. The living room was decorated with some candles with wine and two wine glasses on the table. Nothing more, nothing less.
Also, Sherlock was nervous. Just a bit, but he feared something would go wrong... or John would say "No."

The only lab that still accepted him uninvited was Bart's and that would be the first place John would look. He refused to go within a mile of Mycroft, and Lestrade would be on John's side no doubt. No, he would have to stick it out and hopefully just annoy John to death. He kicked his legs up and dramatically fell onto the sofa as an expression of his exasperation.

Getting from his bed, he slipped on his robe and tying it loosely around his abdomen, letting it hang off his shirtless frame. "For Gods sake."
