Glad you like it! Tessellate is my fave, this one I try not to listen to too closely, though the music is amazing, the lyrics are super creepy!
I’m listening to the whole album right now, and I’m just —
I love music that can make me a little uncomfortable/that stretches my boundaries a bit while listening, so yeah, it’s quite a perfect find :)
Summary: Five times John didn’t want to be carried, and one time he did.
“Christ, Mike, I think he’s in love with me,” John says, then drops his forehead on the bar.
Mike takes a long swallow of beer, then eyes John a bit more closely. “What the hell makes you think that? He’s not … I mean, not that I don’t like the bloke, I mean, I do, but really. Sherlock? You sure you don’t still have concussion issues?”
Author Notes: This came out of a prompt from PrettyArbitrary’s super secret stash, which she so generously shared with me: John is carried by everyone he knows. “Wouldn’t that make a nice 5+1?” I thought. “I’ve not ever done one.” Well, whether I’ve done one now is sort of up for debate.
Massive beta-ing thanks and a raised glass to Mydwynter, who doesn’t let me be lazy and who likes to give me sarcastic awards. Which, to be fair, I give to him, too, so it all evens out in the end, heh.
The heart monitor beeps a quiet, reassuring rhythm. John can see his road before him, endless days of an isolated existence in a sterile safehouse, or thrown back into the midst of a demanding life he isn’t sure he’s ready for. He could go, and once he has a better handle on the situation and Sherlock is well, he could ask to come back. Possibly.
He steels himself and takes up the slim, white hand laying slack on the sheet.
With Moriarty still at large and Sherlock injured, Mycroft sends John back to Afghanistan. This story follows John’s second deployment as an army doctor, and also focuses on the strain this change creates for both Sherlock and John. If you love fiction that is riveting, that grabs your attention and stubbornly refuses to let you go, that makes your heart strong and weak with each new development, then you should probably read this series. I really, really loved it, and Mazaran221b is known as an author that never disappoints.
The first story focuses on John, the second is very Sherlock-centric, and the ones that follow are a magical blend of both.
Oh, wow. That’s such an incredibly lovely review, thank you so very much. /blushing
This is one of my all-time favorite Sherlock/John love stories. I love seeing the personal transformation that each of them go through in their year apart. Really, quite a good way to depict Reichenbach — send John back to Afghanistan, and send Sherlock after him!
Seconded, over and over again. One day, WTFY, one day…
Weeee! Finally getting to post the first installment of my porny goodness recordings.
Thanks to the loin-tinglingly brilliant Mazarin221b for her permission to record these. I had so much fun doing it!

Summary: Sherlock makes a startling proposition, and well, they’re both mature, experienced adults, right? What’s another one-night stand, anyway?

Summary: John must be naturally heat-tolerant, Sherlock supposes, and three years stationed near a desert probably increased his ability to deal with the heat tenfold. But his cool poise in the hottest part of the summer irks Sherlock’s stretched nerves in a way he can’t define, and in the certainty of a great idea that only comes in the middle of the night Sherlock is determined to make John sweat.
