Summary: Sherlock and John are lying low in St Petersburg while they prepare to take on Moriarty’s final sniper, Oleg Kolyvanov. But between language problems and Sherlock’s depression, progress is frustratingly slow, and on top of that it’s starting to look like their Russian host is not what she seems…

Summary: Two of Moriarty's snipers are now dead, and Sherlock and John must travel to St Petersburg, Russia, to take on the last and toughest: mafioso Oleg Kolyvanov. Hardly a simple task, and the fact that Sherlock is increasingly ill makes their chances even slimmer...

Piter Raw )

Along with a lot of charities in the economic downturn, Bipolar UK is having a funding crisis. According to the Guardian, the charity itself is facing closure if it can’t raise £100,000 in the next few weeks. The charity’s own website is less stark and say ‘its services’ face closure , rather than that it is going to implode completely. However, the service affected are the outreach ones: self-help groups and information and advice provision such as helplines.

http://www.bipolaruk.org.uk/appeal-why-we-need-your-help.html

I’ve just donated £100, which I can do because I’m lucky enough to be mildly enough affected by my Bipolar II that I can still work full-time. The people who need the charity most aren’t in that position. They are also poorly served by the NHS; even before the current cuts, mental health was disproportionately underfunded.

Suzanne Hudson of Bipolar UK says ‘The sad irony is that this funding crisis comes at a time when bipolar is beginning to be understood. As a result more individuals and families are finding the courage to seek our support. 2012 was unprecedented in terms of the number of individuals contacting us for help and accessing our services. It is increasingly the case that individuals’ first contact with us is at a time of crisis involving intervention with emergency services.’

My own experience of the charity is based around occasional attendance of a monthly group. You’re not supposed to talk about what happened outside the group itself, but I don’t think it will be a very terrible breach if I quote one new attendee saying ‘This is so valuable – just being here and talking to people who know the experience, so you’re not alone.’

So if you’ve enjoyed Four Corners of the Western World, and/or winced at some of Penny’s more alarming pratfalls over the past 18 months, please consider making a small donation.

Fic Summary: Written for the Breaking the Sex Mold challenge, to this prompt: Pairing: Johnlock. Sherlock is a submissive who wants to explore the more dangerous and unknown aspects of BDSM--everything from flogging and temperature to humblers and full-time powerplay. John has been okay with the more vanilla aspects of BDSM (ie. blindfolds, furry handcuffs), but he's unwilling to try anything that might put Sherlock in danger. He's especially reluctant to Dom for Sherlock because, in addition to be a doctor (hurting someone goes against his morals), he's afraid he'll have some complications with his PTSD (war flashbacks, a recurrence of his limp). How can Sherlock get what he needs to feel fulfilled (both in the bedroom and in their daily interactions) without pushing John past his limits? I've stuck fairly closely to the prompt except that I couldn't quite see Sherlock pushing for fulltime powerplay. So we have a masochistic Sherlock with a John who wants to cherish and nurture.

This fic has been posted weekly until now but there will be a hiatus before the last chapter as I have caught up with myself. Also, my brain needs a little lie-down. I’m going on holiday for the first half of November so hopefully the last chapter will be up soon after that.

But his heart seems to physically clench with the fierceness of knowing that he is wanted, he is needed, and if he can’t fix everything then he can in some way help. And get off spectacularly in the process, because Jesus Christ, Sherlock Holmes is naked and waiting to get his arse whipped, and when did John die and go to heaven?

Summary: Three months after his best friend and unrequited crush apparently committed suicide in front of him, John’s life has been turned upside down again by a voicemail from Sherlock in the US, saying he is covertly tracking down the remains of Moriarty’s network, and asking John to join him.
Two days on, John is on his way to meet Sherlock in Malta. Everything seems to have changed between them: not only is Sherlock being overtly affectionate in his texts, but he quite explicitly wants sex. But there’s just one problem (apart from the small matter of the international assassins etc): Sherlock’s behaviour is getting steadily stranger, even by his standards. John starts to worry his friend may be on drugs again…
