Without answering, he stalked off down the street and you shrugged, jogging as best you could in heels to catch up to him. You stayed relatively close to him so you didn’t lose him in the crowds walking the streets but still did your customary examination of everything you passed, a wide grin plastered across your face as you enjoyed London at night. You didn’t even mind that you were beyond cold or that your feet where beginning to hurt as he lead you to where ever you were going, getting a second wind as your sense of adventure kicked in.
He abruptly came to a halt, turning quickly to catch you against his chest as he anticipated you’d be distracted enough not to notice, as usual. You grinned up at him gratefully and to your surprise he was smiling down at you with a glint of somethi
Observers- BBC Sherlock x Reader Chpt. 19Sherlock woke up on the couch the next morning, having slipped off into a deep sleep after watching you for a bit longer, with a blanket tucked gently over him and you no where to be found. He sighed, it was early enough that John still wasn’t up which meant your habit of rising with the sun was stronger than he’d originally thought.More Like This
Around noon, you bounced through the door way to their flat with a wide grin on your face, “Your brother called.”
Sherlock sat up from his place on the couch with a smirk as he quirked a curious eyebrow at you and you pulled your lips into your mouth, holding your breath as you waited for him to ask. John beat him to it, looking up from his computer, “What did you tell him?”
You were blasé as you answered, “Oh you know this and that about the last case and Sherlock being a twat.”
Sherlock looked disappointed at how mundane your report had been and you grinned wickedly, “I may have also tol

Sherlock disappeared into the kitchen, while John looked you over for any injuries, “What in the world happened Squeak?”
You rubbed the back of your neck as you sheepishly admitted, “It would seem I got a little lost…”
Sherlock’s voice rang out from the kitchen, “A little? That’s the understatement of the year. I found her all the way over in Hackney.”
John startled, “How did you manage that (F/n)?”
You shrugged, “I’m not entirely sure. One minute I was following a guy with the most peculiar little hat and the next it’s getting dark and I have no idea where I am.”
John set into a small rant about all the bad things that could have possibly happened to you and Sherlock came out of the kitchen with a mug of
Observers- BBC Sherlock x Reader Chpt. 17You were sitting on a bench, mentally cursing yourself as the cold night air cut through your light t-shirt, it had been perfect attire for the pleasantly sunny day but was hardly appropriate for the night’s decreased temperatures. You wrapped your arms around yourself in a hug as you shivered and stared at the road in front of you.More Like This
You’d already walked in circles a few times in an attempt to recognize something or determine at least what direction you should walk to get closer to home but always ended up back at this bench, and after a particularly close encounter in one of the neighboring alleyways you decided to stay here as it was likely safer than wandering around at night. There weren’t exactly very many options aside from that.
You let out a shaky sigh, feeling helpless and stupid for getting yourself into this situation and not being able to get yourself out. John probably hadn’t even noticed you were missing as it was possible Sherlock hadn’t even
Observers- BBC Sherlock x Reader Chpt. 14You had barely ushered out Sherlock when there was another knock on your door, you groaned shoving yourself from your place stretched out on the couch with a blanket. You still hadn’t figured out how the fireplace worked and being on the bottom floor the air in the flat was cold.More Like This
You pulled your blanket around your shoulders and went to the door, letting it drag along behind you. You pulled it open and before you could even register who it was, John just sort of bounced past you.
You sighed, grumbling, “Yes by all means. Come right in.”
He took in your flat for a moment, you’d done a fantastic job but he’d expected nothing less from his brilliant little sister. Each room had a color scheme that suited its use and flowed nicely to the next and while none of your furniture actually matched it still all went together well.
He turned to look at you, smile going to a frown, “How are you feeling?”
Your head still hadn’t stopped throbbing and it
Observers- BBC Sherlock x Reader Chpt. 13You stood in the kitchen of your flat, staring at the mug again. With some difficulty you had convinced John to let you go so you could change out of your party outfit and now you were trying to decide if you felt well enough to eat something.More Like This
Or you had been until you saw the mug on the counter where you’d left it.
You had on a comfortable pair of jeans and one of John’s hand-me-down jumpers from a while back, leaning against the wall opposite the counter as you tried to think for a minute. A weight had been lifted off your shoulders when you’d finally told John but it had dredged up old memories not to mention you were still angry at Sherlock over the whole mug thing.
You sunk down to the floor tucking your arms between your chest and your bent knees so you could cover your face with your hands and let out a long heavy sigh, turning your thoughts back to the food vs. no food debate. You sat there for a bit before there was a knock on your door and, not wanting to ge
Observers- BBC Sherlock x Reader Chpt. 11You calmly shut the door to your flat behind you but inside you wanted to scream and throw the mug at the wall. Nothing good could come of that, you were aware of that fact, and if you did you would likely regret it almost instantaneously. So instead you carefully set the mug down on your kitchen counter and stared at it for a moment.More Like This
None of the dishes in your cabinets matched, save for a few teacup and saucer sets, and that was the way you had always liked it. It had even been an advantage over the past few years because it was far easier to replace a dish that went sailing into the wall when you didn’t have to worry about a pattern.
You sank to the floor, still looking up at the mug. Every piece of dishware you had was relatively new, having been replaced multiple times over the past two years. All of them except this one.
By some small miracle that mug had survived time and time again. It was like a beacon, a small blue reminder that you could get through it all because if so

You had already told everyone they weren’t allowed to see the flat until it was done and thankfully you not only didn’t have much but you had also been thorough with your labeling and organizing when packing so the task was quick and relatively painless.More Like This
You were completely done by the end of the week, unpacking the last box of books and shoving them on your shelf. When everything was finally put away in its proper place, you flopped down in the worn leather wing back chair, your chair, pulling a bundle of canvases with you. You ran a shaky hand over them with a frown, each one was a variation of an ominous and depressing grey.
Just straight grey.
You’d wanted to toss them instead of moving them with you, to leave them behind like all the memories you were trying to escape, but canvases were expensive and to some extent you felt like you needed the
Observers- BBC Sherlock x Reader Chpt. 9You fell asleep on Sherlock’s shoulder in the cab after trying with all your might to stay awake, your head bobbing up and down as you nodded off only to pull yourself out of it.More Like This
He looked down at you for a moment when your head hit his shoulder and John was sure he was going to shrug you off but he simply turned to look back out the window.
John was beginning to think the two of you were hiding something. He wasn’t stupid after all and you were both acting strange. Sherlock had been not only rather quiet about you but he also was being surprisingly friendly and you would seem like your usual self and then all of the sudden you’d do something worrisome.
He pursed his lips, you would tell him if something was wrong, there were hardly any secrets between you two and certainly none that really mattered. He had always been close with you, all the way from running around with your pudgy hand in his as kids to calling you in the middle of the night when he had nightmares af
