Author’s Note: This story actually started off based upon this Sherlockbbc_fic prompt: …which I can’t find, but involved a scene of John teaching Sherlock to swim. Which made me think up reasons why Sherlock wouldn’t already know, which spawned a much darker and angstier version of such a story than the prompter was probably looking for.
