La Petite Homicide by fourleggedfish reviews
Sherlock thinks he knows what he's doing. He thought about his problem, and he came up with a plan, and then he shared this brilliant plan with John, and John (eventually) agreed to it. The problem is that sometimes, Sherlock is a giant idiot who never explains things properly, and John keeps forgetting about that.
