“I tried to spare you, John, but you refused to be spared. I knew you and Mycroft were destined for a confrontation, and you would be the loser. I tried to stop you. I put three days in on it, trying to focus your fickle attentions on your duty and me. I tried to break you gently, slowly, painlessly. But even if Mycroft hadn’t put an end to it, it was futile. I see that now. You are too stubborn. You won’t go softly, you are going to hold on to your sense of independence to the bitter end.” Sherlock stood wiping his fingers once more. He tossed the cloth down, angrily. “You are going to shatter and I have no idea what will become of you after that.”

Fic recs I collected last night, from about 3 hours. I’m excluding the ones I remember already reading:

Fics I’ve found myself reccing several times:

Part 2

anonymous said:

THANK YOU! god, it was driving me crazy trying to remember!

You’re welcome!  I ought to clarify that “Chameleon” is not actually omegaverse, but it shares some tones with it - there’s no mpreg or heats or anything.

I think Imma reread that one myself.

… so… it seems nobody has heard anything…
I’ve read as well, she has children and her husband is a writer as well… and so on.
But… I’m really worried about her. hope she’s okay.

If I see anything about her online I’ll inform you as well…

this is something I think about as well.
What happens if something happens? because… the world wide web remembers. I think I have to tell my flatmate, she has to update my blog and tell online if something happens to me..
anyway.
Pressing my thumbs she’s alright and we’ll hear something about her.
Thanks to everyone who has answered.

A very good and dark fic that I somehow missed. Read the tags and enjoy. 

This definitely ruins my life.

So in the total nothingness of boredom, I started to scroll down Google for some Johnlock fanfics and found Chameleon.  

And I started to read it and the way velvetmace write it makes me tremble.

It was so real, the tension of the storyworld was there and shit the 1980’s version of Sherlock is definitely extremely sexier than the recent version in the series (I like him best when he was in S01, less bulky therefore more brainy and flexible than S02&03).

I imagined the main color of the story was all dark, blue, and old (pretty identical in Shame of Michael Fassbender, though perhaps the author wasn’t intended to build the world like so) but you have to admit it makes the chase sexier.

But velvetmace, she literally ruined my life by not releasing any new chapter. And here I was, hoping I found a completed fic. 

My life is incomplete now *sob*

I just read VelvetMace’s Proposition series, and I find myself quite troubled by it. Can I really be such an innocent? (Especially after all this time in fandom and all the crazy shit I’ve read?)

I’ve never been drawn to BDSM, except in the lightest sense. I don’t know terribly much about it; I have no understanding of the deeper reasons for its ability to satisfy, but reading it done well usually makes me feel like perhaps I could get it, just a little bit. I do see the sometimes-related powerplay appeal. I ignore trigger warnings because nothing really bothers me. But this one… it just made me so very sad. It left me feeling something I can’t quite articulate.

I don’t know if I’m really looking for anyone to explain it to me, and it’s probably not something that could be done easily or even something anyone wants to attempt. But since we talk about things like this here, I wanted to share this tight feeling in my gut that I can’t seem to shake.

Powerful - I can certainly appreciate that.

Johnlock Fan Fic Rec Challenge, Day 27: Favourite Dark Fic

Collared by VelvetMace

A genre that goes against my fluffy heart and need for happy endings and one that I don’t read much, if any, of. Nevertheless, it’s an intriguing genre, exploring different aspect of worlds and characters. VelvetMace has an amazing talent for writing compelling thrillers and morally ambiguous characters—and still making them lovable. This is super interesting with characters such as those from Sherlock since they are, most of them, morally ambiguous in one way or another.

Collared takes place in a fascinating world that puts both Sherlock and John in unfamiliar situations which they are forced to adapt to. Completely in character all the while, the fic challenges the characters and their relationships, not to mention the reader’s own morals. The prose is confident and sure, fitting John very well and surprising the reader until the very end.

(Remember to heed the warnings, though!)

Vampires, Mates and Thralls series by VelvetMace

Rating: Explicit

Summary: Mycroft is a 300 year old vampire with his life and ambitions pretty much order: First set his errant brother straight, next take over the world. But to do the former seems impossible, while the latter requires that he find a mate — a rare human whose blood is capable of helping him create vampires. Both his answers come in the shape of one man: Detective Inspector Gregory Lestrade. The problem? Mates can’t be forced and Lestrade has no interest in becoming Mycroft’s.

Review: AU Loved this so much. So many awkward moments with Mycroft who just doesn’t understand and then the very arrogant Sherlock who finally gives in. It’s just a great idea with lots of feels.

Ficbit of the Day

“When Mycroft met you,” Sherlock said, tensely, “he was planning on creating an army of vampires and taking over the world. I’m not exaggerating. He’d been contemplating it for nearly three centuries. Now he’s blissfully content with raising your daughters and making minor adjustments to the human political sphere. That’s your influence, Greg.”
