Where there is no hope, it is incumbent on us to invent it.

Who: Jimmy and Sherlock
When: Day 47-ish? After the Atlantis event kicks off.
Where: Sherlock's trailer
What: Jimmy's just gotten some information from Joker that's amazingly good news! But he has enough sense to try and get a second opinion before running off to the Ringmaster.

Jimmy couldn't believe it. He couldn't. Nobody was that lucky. If Joker was pulled here from the 1880s, and Jimmy from 2009.... Granted, he'd been with Castiel for some time, and he couldn't pin down much time had passed. But 2009 was the last thing he could solidly remember, so he was going with it.

But this? This was a second chance. A chance to change everything. Force Castiel to go somewhere else. To someone else. {If Castiel cared to ask, Jimmy would suggest a long-term coma patient with no surviving relatives. It'd be the easiest on everyone.) All he had to do was find the Ringmaster and-

Jimmy drifts to a stop as something occurs to him. How many times has Castiel gone off after something that may or may not help, without consulting anyone? Yes, the vortex of emotional constipation that was Dean Winchester didn't set a very high bar to clear, but Jimmy at least, could learn from Castiel's mistakes. Which meant getting a second opinion. Except even with all of the magic and persistent weirdness going on, the list of things Jimmy had been through was a high bar to clear. And that was before things got really bad.

And the people Jimmy would trust with anything more than a vague suggestion of what happened is depressingly short. And easily narrowed down to one person. Sherlock. And he could work out the finer points of what he needed to do, if Sherlock didn't think Jimmy was completely insane and kicked him back out. Then Jimmy would have to wing it and go to the Ringmaster on his own. Assuming she stays to form, he'll end up with another year at the Carnival.

But he would go home after. Pick up where he left off, and get on with his amazingly mundane life. First, though, is getting the second opinion and getting himself to Sherlock's trailer. Which means getting himself over there and all worked up again, until by the time he's arrived at the trailer, he's banging on the door and darting through as soon as it opens, tentacles fanning out around him as he spins to face Sherlock. There are a dozen things he wants to say, but all he can manage to get out at first is "I CAN FIX IT!
