Pairing: Molly Hooper/Greg Lestrade [Molly Hooper/Jim Moriarty, unrequited Molly Hooper/Sherlock Holmes]
Rating: R
Wordcount: 56,053

Warnings: This fic covers the entirety of Molly’s experience for both seasons of Sherlock, and thus deals with the aftermath of her relationship with Jim Moriarty. As such, there are some sexual trauma themes in this story; if, for your own self-care, that is not the kind of thing you should be reading, please give this story a pass.

In which Molly Hooper gets a job, gets a degree, breaks a heart, has her heart broken, falls in love, keeps a secret, saves a life, runs a morgue, falls apart, pulls it together, and finds exactly what she didn’t know she was looking for—not necessarily in that order.

Notes: All my love and thanks to Marie, who drew the EXTRAORDINARY art that goes along with this story and cheered me along through the frankly insane process of writing it; to Leupagus, who told me to go for it when I said “So I’m thinking about writing a massive Molly Hooper story,”; and, of course, to Postcard, who not only kept me going as always, but tirelessly corrected all my terrible Americanisms, did like 99% of my research for me and explained to me the—as it turns out, significant—differences between grilled cheese, cheese toasties, and cheese on toast. This was a labor of love, and it wouldn’t have happened without you guys <3


Basically all I have to say is this : rfuygihnjbvcxdyfuyguhjkjbhvg.
I have been lucky enough to see the process of this EPIC amazing story, and along the way just keyboard smashed and arted something because I had feelings all over the place. I can’t thank Gyzym enough for letting me “in” and for all the epic convos we had on the way, and posting this together, and everything. This has been a BLAST and this story is just… just go and read it, just do it…

    This is a BRILLIANT fic. I don’t read much outside of the Johnlock pairing, but this was so very very wonderful, I think...
