 Safe Distance on AO3

The mother was apparently poisoned, the son seems to have killed himself playing Russian roulette. It's a murder and a suicide. Or is it a suicide and a murder?  At least the case is distracting John from the fact that sex with Sherlock was probably a mistake right from the start. John will learn to cope, one way or another.

This week Chapter 5...

He wanted -- he had wanted -- to be seen kissing John.  It was, admittedly, a primarily possessive urge.  But now --  Now he knew what John's mouth actually felt like: the warmth, the caressing mobile softness, the shockingly intimate wetness of that pink tongue.  He'd had John's tongue inside his mouth while he was having an orgasm, and the two sensations were now associated as firmly as if he'd put them side by side in his memory palace and reinforced the links every day for a decade.

First two chapters posted to AO3.
Somehow John had never been taught the appropriate way to act when your best friend came back from the dead. But Sherlock is back, and they’ve got a case — a suicide and a murder (or possibly vice versa). John will learn to cope, one way or another.

This fic is 100 fucking thousand words long.  And finished.  Those two things have always been fundamentally incompatible in my writing life.  But then #antidiogenes happened.  Word wars, man, those fuckers are MAGIC.

So, I'm going to try the periodic posting thing.  I’ll give each chapter a last polish and post weekly on Thursdays.  There are 11 chapters, but the first and last are short -- more a prologue and an epilogue, so I've posted the first with the second.

I cannot tell you how good/weird it is to just decide this thing is done.

Also, dreamwidth, man, the weird html you stick into things when I copy-paste -- I don't know what you're trying to do, but the result is utter crap.
