Sherlock/John Fic Recs
As requested by lilacwitchtea, but I guess more of you might be interested :) I’m just going with my favourites, shall I? ;)
My top 9:
- The Progress of Sherlock Holmes
Slow progression of the relationship. The author found a very interesting way to visualise Sherlock’s thought processes.
- The Fabric of Life
Sherlock returns, and John moulds his life around him, again. The grieving processes are tangible, and they don’t just stop.
- Performance In a Leading Role
Hollywood AU (read it anyway XD it’s brilliant)
- Mega Indeed
This is “ACD canon” and not BBC Sherlock. It’s short and completely ridiculous, but awesome XD
- Planet Sherlock
John is annoyed that Sherlock keeps busting his dates, so he explains what sex means to him. Very funny but still IC.
- Echoes Through Time
Brings together both the ACD canon and the BBC Sherlock in quite a fascinating way.
- A Study In Winning
Tennis player AU. It’s a really good read. (I’d advise you to stay clear of the sequel, though. It’s… well… pretty bad, actually. Like the high school version in emotional maturity of this one.)
- Touch the Fleeting Chill of Air
Sherlock makes an unusual friend.
- Hallowed Eve
Sherlock is (to John’s surprise) in a Halloween-y mood and plans to attend several parties with his blogger. (Excellent characterisation, witty dialogues, and just overall a very enjoyable read.)
And if you want to give my stories a go, I wouldn’t be angry, either ;)
- One Heart Walking
He does have a heart. And it’s walking around right in front of him.
→ Post series 1 (four chapters; characterisation not series 2 compatible).
- A Matter of Professional Integrity
After Reichenbach, John suddenly realises that something is not quite right with what he was meant to see.
→ Post series 2 (five chapter story, plus one chapter sequel with a different POV).
Sherlock finishes his solitary quest after Reichenbach. He begins to think that John might be better off without him. It takes some interference to prove him wrong.
→ Post series 2 (three part series - somewhat metaphysical).
- Bond Night Is Go (WIP)
→ BBC Sherlock & Skyfall X-Over
→ Established 00Q; friends-to-lovers Sherlock/John
→ Q as youngest Holmes brother
→ Sequel to Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (works as a stand-alone)
“Sherlock hasn’t reported back in a while, and I haven’t been able to contact him. This should be rectified, immediately, since we have new information on his last target and reason to believe that the target might have become the hunter, himself. And my brother, for his many talents, is not an assassin.”
