You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness,
Like resignation to the end, always the end.

Oh Sweet Agony!, a Sherlock/(&)John post-Reichenbach fanfic rec
Like the cliffhanger spawned dozens of escape theories from the pool, the fall has resulted in some pretty great fics, too. There are some really, really sweet stories of reuinion in this list, but you know what they say about seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. You first have to survive getting hit by a speeding train. Wait, what? It doesn’t go like that? Well.
Some are BBC-compliant, and others were written even before series 2 aired. Like the AU and smut rec, you’ve probably already read these if you virtually live in AO3, but I like putting things in lists so.. As always, be mindful of the ratings!

Who press-gangs suicide bombers?
After 3 years, John receives a text. It says “I bought milk, I’ll put the kettle on. Come home, it may be dangerous. SH”, and John calls Lestrade, because maybe a madman is in his flat. And indeed, there he is.
