Fic of the Month: March
Our March fic of the month is Performance In a Leading Role (click to read) by Mad_Lori on Ao3.org, a BBC Sherlock story.
"Sherlock Holmes is an Oscar winner in the midst of a career slump. John Watson is an Everyman actor trapped in the rom-com ghetto. When they are cast as a gay couple in a new independent drama, will they surprise each other? Will their on-screen romance make its way into the real world?"
I will now do my best to prevent this review from becoming one big mess of fangirl feels. This story is not only adorable, but it is well written and goes deeper into the gay rights movement than simply shipping two characters of the same sex together. It reveals how unfair the filmmaking industry can be, and tells a beautiful story of love with some favorite characters as well. Seriously, I love this fic, and I’ve read it countless times. It’s amazing. Enjoy!
