Because we had another excellent Sherlock episode last night and the internet is alive with the buzz of this wonderful new fandom, I'm doing a fic recs post of my favourite Sherlock fics I've stumbled across so far. Enjoy:
The Trick is to Make it Look Easy by paperclipbitch , P6-13, Sherlock/John
"Your blog only has one sentence on it," Sherlock tells him.
John helps Sherlock understand the world outside and works out how to write his blog. ie the Sherlock fic everyone's read by now and for good reason :)
London Calling by chaletian , PG, Gen
LOL at the frequent action John's mobile phone gets now that he knows Sherlock. It's a good metaphor for what Sherlock's done to his life. Such fun with brilliant moments, like Mycroft's text.
europe, after the rain by sartorialists PG-13, Sherlock/John
"I author my own disasters and successes," Sherlock says, as John is pushing Sherlock's coat off his shoulders, "because I know what humans are capable of once they abandon dignity." We don’t have to be good or play by the rules, ‘cause we’re the same in the things that we do.
This fic is a sensory journey. When I read it, it's like sinking into it.
On Habits and Toast by moorishflower , G, Sherlock & John
It's easy to get to know Sherlock's habits, but getting to know the man himself is a bit more difficult.
John learns Sherlock, with an odd version of help from the man in question who needs to learn the art of normal information sharing. A delight, I especially love the ending :)
The story of how Mycroft Holmes got demoted and was actually quite pleased by it by lavvyan PG, Sherlock/John implied, Mycroft
Dr Watson is sick, Sherlock is a nuscience and Mycroft intervenes.
A look at how Mycroft views his brother and Watson and how he can help and how their relationship can change. I love this because its a different way of looking at Mycroft and it feels right.
Homemaking by rageprufrock , Gen
John's return to England does not go as planned. He has a mad flatmate to contend with and a former sister-in-law who is determined to furnish their flat. Maybe planning is overrated. There's a new Doctor Who on.
Laugh out loud funny. And rich with great dialogue and situations.
Care and Feeding by miscellanny , Gen
Watson's sick and Sherlock is helpless and inept. It works out.
There's something so sweet about this and wonderful. The reader is left warm as well as the characters.
#3patchproblem by ardenteurophile , 12, Sherlock/John implied, cracky-idea
Sherlock tries out Twitter under John's insitigation.
Because Sherlock on Twitter is a genius idea and it's hilarious. Would suggest you read up from the bottom of the entry.
