So teacupdinosaur found some awesome Victorian men’s fashion catalogues, and I couldn’t resist.
The Shadow Game
After the Fall, Sherlock knew he had to tell John that he was alive and well, but he wasn’t sure how. Instead, he follows John for almost two years, but decides enough is enough and has to tell him before a big moment in his life that will change him forever.
Sherlock’s heart felt heavy as he saw John standing by his tombstone. He took a small breath in as he heard the words spoken from John’s mouth. He was hiding behind a small forest near the cemetery that gave him the perfect view of everything. This was going to be tough. More than tough, really, but it was something he had to do for a while. His blue eyes locked on John as he gently touched the tombstone. Sherlock tried not to allow tears to come to his eyes as he saw John stand up straight as if he were in a soldier in position, charging off into war. As John walked away, Sherlock knew that he couldn’t just let John be. John meant the world to him and he had to be sure that he was okay. A guardian angel type creature in a way.
Watching John walk away, he quickly followed behind the trees before pulling out his phone and phoning himself a cab. John stepped in and began driving off as Sherlock noticed the flowers left on his grave by Mrs. Hudson. Once phoning and getting the cab there, he got in, sat down, folded his hands and rested them under his chin. He knew John would be heading to his old apartment since he couldn’t really be at 221B. He began researching on his phone once he cleared his head slightly during the cab ride and bean searching for apartments near John’s once the cab pulled up to the apartments. Stepping out, Sherlock figured out how he was going to pay for everything before phoning Mrs. Hudson to pack his things.
I’m still feeling icky so I thought I’d do something fun and cute. Voila, a little Spirit!John for Voodooling <3
