Post-Reichenbach. John struggles to cope with the loss of Sherlock. A mystery provides a distraction...or does it?


“Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world,

which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime,

and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.”

–€• Edna St. Vincent Millay

Author note: Part 5 of the "No Heart For Me Like Yours" series. This story contains quite a few spoilers for the rest of the series, so it would probably make much more sense to read the series in order, as it tells how John and Sherlock got to this point.

As always, thank you, Skyfullofstars, for being the best beta reader EVER. You are so very wonderful, and I am so grateful for all you do for me!

Thanks, also, to those of you who left reviews, and private messages, asking me to write the rest of this story. It means more than I can say.

Disclaimers:
Sherlock belongs to Steven Moffatt and Mark Gatiss, Sherlock Holmes originally belonged to Sir Arthur Co
anan Doyle. I own nothing. This makes me very, very sad. Written for fun, not profit.

Warnings: Sherlock/John. Slash, slash, somewhat graphic slash. Major, major spoilers for Season 2. Not Season 3 compliant.

Trigger warnings: Suicidal ideation; references to previous abusive relationship, references to non-con, references to sexual assault, references to child prostitution/abuse, references to homophobia, paralysis, despair.

Please read and review!

Once again, sorry for the long hiatus - I had to get to the point where I could ignore Season 3 before I could post again!

Bless you, Skyfullofstars, for nudging - more like shoving - me back out of the rut and into the road. You are brilliant and wonderful. I owe the majority of this dialogue entirely to you!

Photomanip/digital art by Sherlock'sScarf.

I've been reading earlgreytea68's wonderful Sherlock WIP, Nature vs. Nurture. Unfortunately, my picture doesn't really work with the timeline, but it only happened because of my fascination with earlgreytea68's wonderful Ollie. If you haven't read it, you can find this delightful fic at AO3.

Feel free to follow me on tumblr.
My own fics can be read on AO3, LJ or FF.

I made the above photomanip/digital art to accompany Chapter 11 of Skyfullofstars' gorgeous WIP, Sherlock & John Rebellion of Angels: Acclamations. I couldn't get the image out of my head from the excerpt below, and as I often do in that situation, I had to create the image to soothe the muse. It's a bit like having to sing/listen to a song that has become an earworm, only with photoshop. ;)

I'm not going to explain the acorn - you'll have to read the fic for that. *spoilers!*
----

Excerpt from Sherlock & John Rebellion of Angels: Acclamations, by Skyfullofstars (reprinted with permission):




John looks down at the photograph. He ignores the fold lines and stares at the picture. Then he looks up at Sherlock.

"I knew he resembled you but I had no idea –"

"You've got it wrong way round, as usual, John. I resemble him."

John bends his head to again stare at the photograph. He glances incredulously from the photograph to Sherlock and back again. He frowns at the too familiar head of tumbled curls and wide cheekbones, pale skin and full lips.

Nicholas Holmes stands in the exact center of the photograph, a slight smile on his face. His right hand is on his older son's shoulder and his left rests on a very young Sherlock's shoulder. All three of them smile into the camera, but in Sherlock's case, the smile is an wide grin. John just saw that same grin, a scant hour ago, in the photograph in the library.He stares.


Other than the obvious glowing copper shade of Nicholas Holmes' hair, John could be looking at a recent photograph of Sherlock himself.


If you haven't read this wonderful series, you're in for a treat, but I'd recommend starting with the first part, There But For The Grace Of John Watson. These are novel-length fics, people - prepare for hours of fanfiction joy (and angst, of course).

My humble apologies to my readers for the inexcusable length of time between updates on this fic. Real life happened, but the biggest reason for the delay was a huge, heaping helping of depression, with a big serving of writer’s block on the side. It’s been a job to digest it all, but I think I’m on the mend.

Many, many thanks to my lovely, lovely beta, Skyfullofstars, who has encouraged (and gently nagged) me, despite going through some extremely difficult and sad times herself. Sky, you are such an inspiration to me. Thank you for sticking with me, my friend.

Thanks, also, to those of you who left reviews, and private messages, asking me to write the rest of this story. Special thanks to the brilliantly dedicated Hanako Hayashi, who has faithfully translated the entire “No Heart For Me Like Yours” series into French.

And a deeply sincere thank you to the amazing MapleLeafCameo, who has just read and reviewed Every. Single. Chapter. of ALL of my fics, and commented on so many of the little details that I thought no one had noticed. Thanks for reminding me of why I like writing - you gave me that final shove that I needed to get off my arse, and back in the saddle.

And now, I’ll stop mixing my metaphors, shut the hell up, and give you this long-awaited chapter. The next chapter is already halfway written, and should be up very, very soon. Thank you all for sticking with me.

Thanks again to abundantlyqueer and AfroGeekGoddess for your ideas and feedback on the character of Moran and his backstory. You are both amazing. Thank you to my friend Edwin for your help in researching weaponry and ballistics armor. Thank you to my lovely, lovely readers for messaging me asking for me to publish the next chapter, PLEASE! Without your gentle encouragement, I'm not sure I'd have kept going when it got tough. 

And as always, thanks to my wonderful beta reader/editor/mentor/friend, Skyfullofstars. If this chapter is good, it's thanks to Sky. If it's not, then I just didn't live up to her standard. :)
