I wish I had something fresh to offer you today, but I’m in the middle of a ‘perfect storm’ of illness, and I’m impressed I’m actually able to be this coherent! Still, thank goodness for the back catalogue, eh?
Today you can read the last part of The Plato Series, freshly transferred to AO3, and slightly rewritten for clarity.
A little taste:
“John twisted to look at the bedside clock. ‘Oh, fuck.’
It was half past six on Sunday morning and they were supposed to be having a lie-in. He’d arranged for breakfast in bed at 9, and everything. He’d been determined. And now this.
‘I get it,’ Sherlock whispered, breaking his train of thought.
‘The light. That’s why it’s so beautiful here. It’s the light.’ Sherlock seemed almost breathless. He reached out his skinny hand and pulled John across the bed to join him. ‘Can you see it?’”
You can read ‘Opal’ here on AO3.
Alternatively, you can read the entire series from the start, here.
And hopefully, I will be a little less catatonic by Friday!
