oh my gosh it feels like i will never have a definitive art style but for now have some balletlock/rugbyjohn because this au has stolen my heart
My dear fellow,” said Sherlock Holmes as we sat on either side of the fire in his lodgings at Baker Street, “life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outré results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
“And yet I am not convinced of it,” I answered.

Harry knows whats up
The original fic was called ‘Pull The Stars From the Sky’. It was a Johnlock fic in a rockstar!Sherlock AU and I loved it! It seems that the author, in order to get the thing published, has changed their names…but also the gender of the ‘John’ character (who is now Gwen). It’s such a shame!
On a personal side note, I don’t actually see how much of the plot can now work. A lot of it (to me) was tied to them both being men.
thanks! I think I remember that fic actually..damn, that is a shame :/
how about john taking care of sherlock with a cold. how about boxes of kleenex littering the flat and a knitted afghan donated by mrs. h and scalding cups of tea with generous amounts of honey. how about crap reality tv and sherlock’s head on john’s lap. how about john kissing sherlock’s red nose and sherlock giggle-coughing as his doctor makes everything ok.
