Author’s Note: This is my very first attempt at a Sherlock Holmes story, a fandom that I recently rediscovered and have absolutely fallen in love with. While I am probably committing every cliché regarding the time of “the return”, I am drawn to that moment and this is my attempt to define it. I hope you enjoy.

Sherlock Holmes has returned to me, after three long years gone and believed dead. It is if my heart, frozen all that time, has been blasted into the lands of the great Sahara and the thaw is not a slow melting but a tumultuous transformation from ice to fire.

I pull him closer and gently kiss his brow. He murmurs, but does not wake.
