Work inspired by this wonderful quote from the amazing fanfic "There's a Ghost in My Mouth" written by nothingislittle.
It's Johnlock, and it's awesome. Really. If I must say the truth: everything written by nothingislittle is awesome. Go and read it. If you don't like johnlock, go and read it anyway. Go. Chop chop.
