Hello, I'm fairly new to the fandom and I come bearing an AU storyline video. Let it be known that I thought of the entire story in about 3 seconds of looking at John sleeping while watching another video, so this is by a fan for the fans because it's the fans that inspired me with their amazing work. Seriously, you guys are great. Now prepare for a huge wall of text because I can't summarize properly:
Story: John lives a fairly normal life, complete with colleagues, dates, and a job, minus the fact that when he sleeps he can see when crimes are about to be committed. He uses this to help the police, although some people are very skeptical of him and don't trust him. Because of this he stays as far away from the press about it as possible. One night he dreams about a man who's face he can't see. He's cruel and evil, yet he's not someone who's been covered in the news as far as he knows. He finds out that it might just be Sherlock Holmes, a dastardly man who no one has seen (and lived to tell about it) and has apparently returned to London. DI Jim Moriarty, John's 'boss', tells him to find this man if at all possible, but who can recognize someone who 's never been seen?
While trying to search for Holmes, John dreams about a bomb, getting Jim's partner, DI Lestrade, on the scene before it goes of asap. In his hurry to help John stumbles into the wrong house and comes across none other than Sherlock himself. Sherlock is about to not bother with the man, he sees the chaos outside and knows it's not for him, but when John's eyes show that he actually knows who he is he's taken about. Just as he's about to question John however the bomb goes off next door, knocking Sherlock out and sending John back outside for help. When he comes to he's being taken care of and not one officer is preparing to arrest him. Confused, Sherlock finds John staring at him, the look on his face telling him that he's not about to tell. They both part ways without saying a word.
The more time passes the more John dreams of Sherlock until he can think of nothing else, seeing past the criminal hunted by the police to the man underneath, the man who shoots his wall when he's bored, who is adored by his innocent landlady, who plays the violin when he thinks, only to realize that he's fallen for this man, causing such a moral conflict within himself that it hurts. Finally Lestrade informs John that Moriarty's found Sherlock's number and will meet him the next night, asking him to dream about it to see what will happen. John agrees, fearful of what'll happen himself. As the scene plays out Moriarty shows with a sniper, Sherlock showing out of interest to who found him out, only to be targeted right there for death. But soon the scene changes to something new: John's there, and he forces Moriarty to let Sherlock go. Not wanting either result to happen, John lies and tells Lestrade that Sherlock won't show at all, who then tells Moriarty that the plan is off.
Soon after Sherlock texts John himself, still curious as to why he was let go. John is afraid but returns to Sherlock's home, not having dreamt about this and worried this would be the end of him. Instead of conflict Sherlock just asks him why, John lying because how could he honestly tell this man that he loved him because he dreamed of him? In the end John leaves, Sherlock somewhat satisfied with the answer given even though he knows it's a lie.
Time goes on, the dreams stop for the most part, John is able to stop crime again, and Moriarty is absolutely obsessed with catching Sherlock. Because he knows people knew the last plan this time he doesn't tell a single soul, texting Sherlock and telling him to meet him. Because Sherlock's not afraid he shows up, eager to meet the man who figured out who he was when the rest of the world couldn't. While at work John ends up falling asleep, dreaming about the meetup and seeing that Sherlock will die. In a panic he rushes to the scene as Moriarty informs Sherlock that he's got snipers all around and that if he doesn't kill himself and have an honourable death still unknown to the public than he will be shot and labeled as the losing side. Sherlock sees his point and prepares himself for a glorious death as the proud villain he is.
John arrives and immediately rushes into action, knowing he's running out of time as Sherlock stands on the edge. He knows he can't just let this happen, so before he knows it a shot has rung out and Moriarty is dead. Sherlock is confused as to why someone would kill the good guy and why he isn't being shot himself, but quickly realizes that there were no snipers afterall and heads home to pack before someone investigates. He arrives home to find John already there and then understands everything, asking him if he'd like to come with him, John gladly agreeing.
Again, sorry for the wall of text :| Hope you enjoy~
