What if when Sherlock gets back he goes to see John and John doesn’t even react just lets him slide seamlessly back into his life. And at first Sherlock thinks it’s kind of weird but he gets used to it, to John never bringing it up, to the way he sometimes just snaps and yells or breaks something because he figures, “That’s just the way he copes and I deserve so much worse.” Then one day Lestrade or Mrs. Hudson or someone shows up and starts talking to Sherlock and John goes all white in the face and says
“You can see him, too?”
And that’s when Sherlock realizes that the reason John never said anything was because he’d been imagining that Sherlock was still there the whole time. He never noticed that his hallucination had been replaced by the real thing.

I AM SO GLAD SOMEONE DID THIS!!!

EAT IT SHERLOCK
Let’s just all get together and enjoy the face together. Tea? Whiskey? Someone pass the salt.
I just couldn’t resist this.
remember that you were loved by me and that you made my life a happy one and there’s no tragedy in that
“I just thought… wouldn’t you rather take, I don’t know, I mean-“
“Sherlock? Nah. Between you and me, Molly, he doesn’t seem like he’d be much fun. I like to have fun every now and again, keeps me young. And I’d have to keep apologising for him. I have enough trouble keeping track of who I need to apologise to for myself, I can’t be having that.”
“John, then? You said… it was dangerous, and I’m not- I mean, I don’t know how to fight or anything.”
“Not a big fan of fighting myself. You don’t mind about that by the way, do you? That it’s dangerous.”
“Well then. What’s the problem?”
WHEN THE FUCK DID THIS GET SO MANY NOTES, WHAT.
MOLLY FOR COMPANION. FUCK YES.
In my mind, Sherlock comes to her. Because he’s dead, she’s dead. And for a moment, one perfect dinner their paths cross and he can breathe again because someone knows he’s real, that he’s there. And they know that it’s just a matter of time before Moriaty’s cells collapse and Sherlock can come back. But until then, they’ll just play dead.
