Summary: After two weeks away, John finally texts Sherlock. He doesn’t expect Sherlock to respond. He doesn’t expect Sherlock to keep texting him. And he really doesn’t expect things to spiral out of control so rapidly.
Why You Should Read This: I grinned all the way through this. It’s humorous without being crack-y at all.
John is at a convention and he’s bored. So he texts Sherlock, not really expecting an answer. What he gets is more than he ever expected. When John tries to go out on a ‘date’ with a pretty doctor also attending the convention, the texts from Sherlock become like another person in the room. Even a relative stranger can see the relationship that John and Sherlock are in.
But it takes some serious pining, awkward conversations and jealous snits before our boys get together. But when they do, it’s still awkward and funny!
