After-wise

Title: After-wise
Recipient: sjames_centre
Author: cathedralcarver
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock/John
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Summary: My name is John Hamish Watson and I am 74 years old and I must wear clean pants everyday. No exceptions.

Written for holmestice December 2014.

A/N: I started, erased and restarted this story, literally, five or six or seven times. Then I erased what I had written and started again. Unsurprisingly, the finished product is very different from the one I set out to write. So thank you to the very patient mods, who run such a lovely fest. This is for sjames_centre who will, I hope, read it, and for Nana, who I know will not.

Wary of the weather and steering by a star?

Written for saki_to_aruki for the June 2013 holmestice.

“Aye. Maybe it’s the black plague,” the Captain whispers at last and he no longer sounds obstinate. He sounds very small and very scared. His hand slides along the tabletop and takes the First Mate’s hand. The First Mate takes it and squeezes it, hard. “Maybe.”

The First Mate doesn’t reply, because in all honesty he doesn’t know, and it very well might be something just like that.



Ahoy, matey
