Stepping on the broken tracks of my lost train of thought…

Sherlock's mind was a haze, heavy smoke hanging in thick curtains, blocking out the voluminous light of reason. His conscious was dazed, slipping slightly, falling and skidding on the icy hot surface of his head. He was going to die. That had to be it. His brain was failing, falling, dying.

"Just what I thought. You, my dear Sherlock, have a fever. Don't move, don't speak, don't think, got it? I'm going to ask Mrs. Hudson for some milk."

John mumbled, his uttered breaths carrying words like ill-fated butterflies, landing on Sherlock's ears with muffled silence. His mouth cracked, the dry skin aching like the desert before rain. Don't move, don't speak, don't think. How hard could it be?

His mind wandered, down over un-trodden paths, following little cross butterflies, watching them worry. How dull being ill was.


To those with a busy mind, being sick is a blessed relief.
An apology for the Hiatus worrying... Imagery, and only 150 some odd words.
:iconobikenobi96: This one is definitely for you!

I actually don't mind being delirious sick. It's rather fun, to completely let go of consciousness, and just sort of drift. I am very morbid tonight, sorry... :D

20 Days! That's about 5% of the way through... This is going to take a lot longer than I thought...

Alright, so, now for the real comment since I can finally use my fingers.
First off, thank you~ I mean, I know I should be saying 'you're welcome' since it was my muse that inspired yours, but, I still want to thank you for reading it in the first place, and appreciating it enough to write something of your own.
Brilliant imagery, dear. I think it's one of your specialties.
That last line before the italicized one is perfect :D It really captures Sherlock's personality.
Once again, great job~ :clap:

Don't worry about it! And thank you very much for lending me ideas and inspiration. I do enjoy imagery...
It just sort of felt like something he would say... :D
Thank you!

Well, before you read this, be aware that you'll probably start laughing :D
My sister and I were playing a game that she had just gotten from her boyfriend (The Michael Jackson Experience - for the Wii), and she decided that instead of each of us just taking one turn after the other is done, that we should play it together. So, that worked for one song, despite the smallness of the room we were playing in. My sister dances a lot, and she's rather good at it, but she tends to flail about, and, well, she has a habit of hitting things. We were on our second dance and my sister bashes my finger with her Wii remote. She hit the knuckle on my first finger (it's still bruised and kind of sore), and on top of it swelling a whole bunch, she managed to make it bleed too. I couldn't really bend it down very much, hence why I really didn't want to type very much.
So, yeah. It's a lot better than it was before, but it's still really bruised. So I call it my zombie finger :D

:worship: Can I just say, my dear, you are skilled. :D :hug: Hope it doesn't hurt that bad, and if anyone asks, I'd turn that story into a ninja fight. :D
