Summary: "And just what is the plan, Sherlock?" John shouted. "Go to prison? You assaulted a police officer – no court won't convict you." He ran a hand over his face. "What could possibly be worth risking your freedom?"

Review: Acts of terror are happening all over London, and John hasn't seen Sherlock in a few days. This fic is a little darker than your average episode of Sherlock - Moony captures so well the possibility of Sherlock's dark side. John (as well as the reader) is torn between believing the best in Sherlock, and admitting what Sherlock could be capable of. Sherlock's not directly present for much of the fic; you see John's point of view, as is usual in any Sherlock Holmes fandom, but his confusion and worry, as well as his ability to do what's right and deal with difficult situations really comes through in this and makes it a worthwhile read, if you weren't already convinced by the fascinating plot.

I don't want to say too much, lest I spoil the story, but this is a definite must-read for anyone who wants a Sherlock fic that has a plot and tone similar (and similarly well-done) to the television series. There's enough action, crime-solving, and drama for any reader, and the Sherlock/John pairing is a nice bonus too.
