SHERLOCK Fic Rec List - 2 of ?  



image



—————————————————

Safe Distance - Case Fic, Unhealthy Relationship

The mother was apparently poisoned, the son seems to have killed himself playing Russian roulette.  It’s a murder and a suicide.  Or is it a suicide and a murder?

At least the case is distracting John from the fact that sex with Sherlock was probably a mistake right from the start.

John will learn to cope, one way or another.

—————————————————

Bloody but Unbowed - Post Reichenbach, Angst, H/C, Abduction,

When a familiar argument threatens to destroy the last remnants of John and Sherlock’s failing friendship, both men are left questioning their worth to one another. Before either of them has the chance to make amends, circumstance intervenes. John is left at the mercy of his abductors, and this time, he’s not sure Sherlock will bother coming to his rescue.

—————————————————

Their Great Reward - First Kiss, One-Shot

Boxing day, in John’s opinions, is the worst day of the year. Christmas is over, the tree is wilting and stripped of gifts, and there’s a week of dead-time until the clean slate of the new year. However the combination of a blizzard, a power-cut and Sherlock might just make it a day to remember. (John and Sherlock pre-slash to slash fluff)

—————————————————

Lucid - Post Reichenbach,  H/C, Angst, Sexy Times, Romantic!Sherlock

The first time it happened was completely by accident.

Post-Reichenbach, John finds a way to hold on to Sherlock after all.

—————————————————

Cat Among The Pigeons - Felisian!Sherlock, AU, Cracky, Series of Shorts

A slow-growing, ongoing collection of snippets, scenes and insights set in the cat!lock universe. Starting off as pre-slash, but probably moving onto Johnlock later.

—————————————————

Let You Kiss Me (So Sweet and So Soft) - firsts

The first time Sherlock kisses him, John keeps his eyes open, and so does Sherlock, and mostly, he wonders what Sherlock could possibly be up to.  There’ll be some logic to this.  Some ridiculous experiment about body warmth or respiratory rates or testing a new way of picking pockets.  Sherlock does the unimaginable for bizarre reasons, but behind it, there’s always logic and curiosity.  Sometimes, it just takes him a while to explain it to John.

—————————————————

The Real Meaning of Idioms - Awkward Romance, Texting

After two weeks away, John finally texts Sherlock. He doesn’t expect Sherlock to respond. He doesn’t expect Sherlock to keep texting him. And he really doesn’t expect things to spiral out of control so rapidly. (Just read it!)

—————————————————

The Whore of Babylon Was A Perfectly Nice Girl

Sherlock walks into a room and takes all the space right out of it.  He does the same inside John’s head. (Just read it, srsly)

—————————————————

26 Pieces - H/C, Torture, Happy Ending

Mycroft gives Sherlock the apparently simple task of solving a puzzle box containing a stolen microchip. It isn’t simple

—————————————————

and stand there at the edge of my affection - Love Letters, <5k

“You’ve written love letters,” Sherlock asserted.

—————————————————

The Norwood Love Builders - Case Fic, Pretend Relationship

Sherlock and John go undercover to solve the murder of Joanna Oldacre, but things are complicated by the many feelings John has been repressing in the wake of Sherlock’s faked death and return.

—————————————————

Hitting the Water at Sixty Miles an Hour - Pretend Relationship

“You love your mother, Sherlock?”

John watched the muscles in Sherlock’s jaw jump. He nodded in one sharp jerk.

“Then we’re going to her party and making her happy.” John let out a resigned sigh. “As a ruddy couple, you bastard.”

—————————————————

Given in Evidence - Post Reichenbach, Angst, Case Fic, BAMF!John, Submissive!Sherlock

Coming back from the dead can be a complicated business. With a new case on the horizon, rebuilding a life is one thing… rebuilding a friendship quite another. For Sherlock and John, things may never be just the same…

—————————————————

A Study in Strays - Cat!Sherlock, AU, Animal Transformation

John Watson moves to 221B Baker Street. Unfortunately, the flat’s already occupied.

—————————————————

Leave the Signs and the Sirens - Post-S1 AU

After John’s released and back home at Baker St, Sherlock still feels it. Down the centre of his chest there’s an ache like a healing wound. A physical awareness of a body he usually ignores as much as he can. It’s psychosomatic, nothing more interesting than that. Pssst… Sherlock’s in love.

—————————————————

About Sleep and Coffee and the Existence of Fate - Established Johnlock, marriage proposals, relationship fluff

Naturally, John was startled when suddenly the ultimate solution occurred to him: Marriage. This was, of course, a bit of a fundamental problem rather than an actual solution. One didn’t simply use the words “Sherlock” and “marriage” within the same sentence. Not even in a hypothetical context. (Five times John kind of wanted to propose to Sherlock, and one time he didn’t have to.)

Warning to my fellow emetophobic friends: This fic includes a stomach flu scene complete with vomiting.

—————————————————

Empathy - Canon rewritten, Empath!John, Psychic Bond

John is an empath. Which isn’t nearly as much fun as it sounds. Most of the time, it’s not even useful.

—————————————————

Love Is -  Post S3, Romantic Angst, Pining!Sherlock, Idiotic!John

At Mrs Hudson’s urging, Sherlock finally decides to tell John how he feels about him. –this fic is as painful as it is beautiful and I adored every moment of it, but oh the angst. Sherlock is a romantic.

Companion Fic: The Things That Matter

—————————————————

Paparazzi - Post S3, Virgin!Sherlock

John moves back into 221B Baker Street after his marriage falls apart and the paparazzi won’t leave him and Sherlock alone about the status of their supposed relationship. Sherlock, of course, never denies it, until one day he does…

—————————————————

Skeleton Key -  Tongue Piercing

Sherlock Holmes is anything but predictable; a fact that John has grown used to over the year they have known each other. However, nothing could prepare him for his reaction to Sherlock’s mysterious decision to pierce his tongue.

—————————————————

Unkissed (series) - Asexual!Sherlock (sort of), Post-Reichenbach

If you like canon divergent, smoopy, fluffy, pet!names, hurt/comfort, beautiful johnlock love with a sprinkling of case fic and intrigue, you have hit the effing motherload. This verse contains 42 works starting with Sherlock and John getting together and all their lovely firsts in Unkissed and just moving from there. This is a wonderful verse to immerse yourself in. You should read it ALL.

—————————————————

Speaker for the Bees - Deaf!Sherlock

It isn’t always easy assisting a deaf detective. Luckily for John, they make a pretty good team.

—————————————————

The Guarded Secret - AU, PTSD!John, Addict!Sherlock

After his war injury, John feels broken, small, and useless. On a whim, he takes a position as a security guard of sorts at the gorgeous Holmes Hall in Yorkshire. As it turns out, he is not as broken, small, or useless as he thinks. A story of beauty and blossom, murder and mystery, loss and love. The Secret Garden AU.

—————————————————

Just Transport - less than 5k

Sherlock deduces a very interesting man on the tube one day, and starts to take public transport more often. Which is, of course, just a coincidence.

—————————————————

The Man No One Liked - Historical AU

In November of 1913, Doctor John Watson is invited to the country house of his distant relation, Lord Lestrade. He and the footman, Holmes, who has been assigned as his valet for the weekend, are instantly attracted to one another. But before the weekend is out, someone will be murdered, and Sherlock and John will have to race to sort through family secrets to find the killer.

—————————————————

Without Knowing How - A-touch-SciFi AU

John grows up reading about a fictional detective named Sherlock Holmes but, after nearly dying in Afghanistan, finds himself in a world where Sherlock Holmes is very much real.

—————————————————

Sociopathy and Other Fibs - under 6k

Five times John called Sherlock out, and one time Sherlock returned the favour.

—————————————————

Take Care of Me - under 3k, fluff
"I'm taking you up on that offer, Doctor," Sherlock says evenly; his voice low and sensual. His hands shake slightly. "I am placing myself in your capable hands."

—————————————————

Know When You've Been Beaten- Fluff, Hurt/Comfort, Autistic!Sherlock
What began with a drugged and vulnerable Sherlock confessing some things about his sexual history and feelings towards John (after Irene Adler injected him and escaped), becomes a sweet, humorous and awkward journey of Sherlock overcoming his past to flirt with the idea of something more with his companion. Misinterpretations and misunderstandings plague the two, as the good-natured, compassionate and sometimes BAMF ex-army doctor, is seduced by-proxy by the mad-genius detective trying to work through what he wants and if he is capable of providing it.
