AU: After the fall John’s mind creates a reality in where Sherlock survived the fall. At first he’s convinced it’s just a dream. But as the dreams keep happening every day, he starts to doubt himself, thinking that maybe, just maybe, it’s the other way around; his dreams are about Sherlock dying and in reality, he survived. - Based on Awake.
