Sherlock Drabble: Y.A.N.A.
Title: Y.A.N.A.
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Rating/Content: PG13. A bit florid.
Word Count: 100 words
Disclaimer: Not my world.
A/N: Written for watsons_woes July Writing Prompt #8: Forced Perspective. I hope this interpretation of the prompt is acceptable. [LJ-only]

Summary: Sherlock's view of a scene in ASiP.


Y.A.N.A.

Sherlock has the work, just his own life at risk. The challenge of a pill, intoxicating. But then the window smashes, shot-shattered, and the game ends before he can win it.

Later, detailing the shooter's qualities to Lestrade, he catches a glimpse of his new flatmate lurking blandly behind the cordon and feels it. A refocusing snap; a descending awareness. When Sherlock risks his life now, a shadow watches him, saving him from himself. Someone thinks Sherlock's life is worth more.

His worldview tilts, and for once he stops, backs away from revealing the truth, experiencing an uninvited change of perspective.

Very nice! I like your take on Sherlock's epiphany: that moment that he realises that there is a whole new dimension to John than he deduced when they first met.

Thank you. John's full of surprises. :-)
