My Thoughts:

I first found this story as a one-shot back in April, and was hooked. A season 3 fix it fic, “A Home for Us” portrays Sherlock and John’s reunion post-Reichenbach as very different. There is no Mary, but instead an even more complex relationship between our Baker Street Boys. John has spent the last two years grieving, not falling in love with a woman—so Sherlock’s unexpected return is cause for joy, frustration, grief, and eventual healing in a completely different way than what season 3 portrayed. The one-shot has now been updated into a multi-chapter fic and is a WIP…so if works in progress aren’t your jam, you may want to wait a little bit before starting. I, for one, just got an update in my email today and I am 100% going to cut this rec short so that I can go read a new chapter.
