Summary: What if Sherlock was never real? What if he has always been a figurement of John Watson’s traumatized mind? A cure to ease John’s loneliness after the war.
I promised you I’d do a trailer to this amazing story/concept/idea and BAM! here it is…
There should be a fanfic for this.
But the first part really drives home for me how good Sherlock was for John.
I tend to see this show from Sherlock’s perspective—what John does for him, what John tolerates—but Sherlock’s helped him just as much.
Oh my god.
This is a brilliant concept.
