You can read the fanfiction by bambionice here:

The ficition is a companion piece to this trailer and it deals with John's issues after he finds out that Sherlock isn't real. I hope it'll give you a bit of closure and ease your traumatized minds. *laughs*

A post on tumblr gave me the idea to do this and I completely fell in love with the concept. First I thought that this idea couldn't be made into a trailer but - well - you all know how much I love a challenge. ;-) And if you think about it, Sherlock being a figurement of John's imagination really would explain a lot of things: why Sherlock never eats anything, why Mrs Hudson asks John if he needs two bedrooms, how Sherlock survived the fall *trollface* etc. etc.

I know that this extreme and that the halluzinations and flashbacks you get when you have actual PTSD are very different from imagining an actual non-existent person (unless you also suffer from a dissociative identity disorder) . But well, you know... it's just fiction... lean back and enjoy.

I'm very sorry for my long absence but I've been working on this beast of a trailer for almost 2 months now. Today, when I wanted to finish it, my editing program decided to crash and deleted EVERYTHING from the timeline... That's why the audio is so messed up because I only had audio mixdowns as backup. Sorry for that.

Anyway - I hope you'll like it even though the audio is crap! If you need a transcript let me know.

Take care
