So @inevitably-johnlocked had an ask looking for Sherlock/Johnlock AUs where John is the “special” one. Steph, we talk to much and I lost the link to the ask, sorry. But hopefully this helps.

 Across the Desert, Upon the Wind    by hogwartswitch

While out on a routine sweep in the desert, John and one of his teammates get lost in a sandstorm and end up at the foot of an enormous palace. They meet - and anger - a cursed prince who spares their life in exchange for John staying behind. But the prince has a secret and John soon discovers it, plunging himself in a quest across the desert fraught with danger. Loosely based on the fairy tales “Beauty and the Beast” and “East of the Sun, West of the Moon”.

Now while John isn’t exactly magical here, he’s a badass and this is great story.

A Fold in the Universe  by darkest_bird

Alpha Sherlock and Omega John are in a relationship. Prime Sherlock and Prime John are not. So what happens when a freak fold in the universe switches one John for the other?

One of the best stories I’ve ever read. John is amazing in this one. Or should I say, the Johns are amazing ;-)

Tempered Steel     by MyFirstistheFourth

Sherlock struggles with being a mate. John faces an unknown desire. While an enemy seeks to destroy a bond and the men who share it. Alpha/Omega dynamics. Angst and Feels abound but All Shall Be Well Friends! Mature for now but may be Explicit in later chapters.

Another badass Omega John. It’s long but so good.

Secrets and Revelations by  Hisstah

Dr John Watson has some major secrets that he’s kept from his flatmate, Alpha Sentinel Sherlock Holmes.  Now the Sentinel Tower is after him. Can John stay out of their hands until he can reveal his secrets to Sherlock?

An Omega/Guide John. He’s awesome in this one. One of my favorite series. He has some pretty kick ass abilities.

More Things Than Are Dreamt Of by 1electricpirate

In which John is (reluctantly) a wizard, Mycroft is (apparently) omniscient, and Sherlock is (surprisingly) oblivious.

My FAVORITE Potterlock in existence. I can’t say enough about how wonderful this story is.

Powerful, Beautiful and Without Regret by songlin

An alternate version of our own world, in which vampirism and lycanthropy are commonly recognized diseases and a returning soldier finds himself in need of a unique flatmate.

It’s been a while since I’ve read this one, but it’s a very good series.

Colors  by Quesarasara

Everyone on earth is born with eyes that see in black, white, and an endless series of greys. When you meet your soulmate, you finally see the world in color.We’re all searching for the person who brings color to our lives. John and Sherlock are no exception.

Tell me you’ve read Colors?? One of my favorite fics <3

This Man’s Heart  by ellie_hell

In the latter part of the 19th century, a peculiar solitary man and an ex-army doctor disfigured at war live in a small village, surrounded by breathtaking landscapes. When they first meet, they have no idea their lives are about to change forever and, over the months, they will form an unusual friendship, discover more about each other and themselves, and maybe fall a little in love along the way.

I have read this fic so many times. I love it so much.

How to Build a Heart out of Ashes by Teumessian

In an AU where a small number of the population become Changelings at a young age, at 17 John Watson believes he’s destined for Normal life but then the Change takes him and he is sent to the Baker Institute. There he meets Sherlock Holmes. 

I adore this fic so much. Read it so many times.

Talented People With Interesting Skillsets by CharleyFoxtrot, MurphysScribe, naienko, thecookiemomma, wendymarlowe, Yuki801

A precog, a telepath, an empath, and a clairvoyant walk into a bar. That their names are Sally Donovan, John Watson, Greg Lestrade, and Sherlock Holmes may or may not be highly relevant.

I love this series. It’s fun and John is fantastic in it.

Ωrion - Sirius Black x Reader

Request: Can I request Sirius x reader where Sirius finds her intimidating bc she’s so perfect and confident, and so she feels insecure bc he never flirts with her, but actually he’s super in love?🌸🌸🌸thank you gurl🌸

I wrote this while listening to this (that can explain the title) 
Warnings: I don’t even know. My English. Not that great?

You were oblivious to his stare. Or the reasons behind it. You were talking to Lily about how immature she was acting about the whole ‘James-thing’. Not that you were any better. And then you heard it. The annoying sound of another girl’s laugh. It made your heart squeeze in pain.
“You’re so funny” she said.  How cliché. You wanted to bang her head against a wall. Multiple times. You had turned your eyes and your entire attention towards him- and her. You didn’t know this but once he noticed that, he flirted back even though he didn’t really want to.
“Did you sit on a pile of sugar? Cause you have a pretty sweet ass” he said seductively. Now, you wanted to bang his head against a wall. She giggled. Your mind was filled with venom.
“Hey, hey, Y/N, loosen up, love” you heard Fabian telling you. You furrowed your eyebrows but you realized that you were holding his arm in a rather tight grasp. You let go and apologized immediately. He shook it off like it was nothing.
 "So, how is it to be perfect?“ he flirted with you after a while. You laughed because in all honesty, you never considered yourself to be perfect. You may were a good student and you may had many date invitations but none of it mattered.
“Stop trying to seduce me Prewett. It’s not gonna work” you said trying to eat your lunch in peace. The truth was that you were indeed trying to be confident and to appear strong and carefree but intact as well. However, you knew you were none of those things. You weren’t confident at all. You never believed that you were worthy of anything great and that was somebody’s fault.
“Stop being intimidating” Lily whispered to you. Intimidating?  You couldn’t possibly believe that someone -anyone- would be intimidated by you. You raised an eyebrow at her, questioning her very statement.
“Yeah, that’s exactly what I am talking about” she said before she turned away, continuing her lunch. You were ready to fire something back when you heard him using another awful pickup line-and her(whoever she may be) giggling.  Great. 

It had been almost a month. A tortuous month. He had gone off the rails for his little game. He had flirted with every girl in the school-except you. He never flirted with you. Ever. He wouldn’t even talk to you anymore. You had started to believe that t you had done something to annoy him, offend him even. He wouldn’t look at you. Whenever you were engaged in a conversation with the infamous Marauders, he would come up with an excuse-a ridiculous one- and leave. And it hurt you deeply, but you never showed it. You had truly become intimidating. You had focused your anger towards classes and you thrived on all of them. Even Potions. Slughorn thought it was his teaching but really, it was you trying not to murder a certain raven haired boy. You were currently in the middle of your Care of Magical Creatures class.
The professor had asked something that nobody knew. You, however, since you had studied almost the entire book, knew exactly what the answer was. (A/N credits: Harry Potter Wikia!)
“The Nundu is a large East African beast that resembles a leopard. It moves silently, despite its “gigantic” size, and is considered by some to be the most dangerous creature alive. The breath of the Nundu is toxic and filled with disease so potent that it can wipe out entire villages of people. The Nundu is extremely hard to subdue and has never been defeated by less than around one hundred wizards working together. Compared to the Dragons that are stunned into submission by around ten wizards, the prospect of this rare beast is truly terrifying” you said, proud of yourself and earned your house twenty points. At least, something good could come out of this situation.
You turned at the sound of a sigh coming from the desk right behind you, only to be surprised when it turned out to be Sirius the one who sighed. ‘Really?’ You thought to yourself. You locked eyes with him. For a second he just kept looking at you but then… He blushed and lowered his gaze. He blushed? You were left puzzled.
You returned your gaze to your professor but not your attention. Why was he acting like that?  You tried to eavesdrop. You knew it was low of you but you needed to know.
“Is Sirius Black blushing?” you heard James teasing him.
“Shut up, Prongs” he fired back, not giving any sign that that meant something. You stopped. ‘Okay, okay, pull yourself together!’ You silently reprimanded yourself. You cursed the moment you had let your heart fell for him. And all the other members of your body. He wasn’t even your friend. You didn’t want him to be your friend.
“Miss Y/L/N, do you know who was the first to capture the creature?” your professor asked you. Thankfully.
“Eldon Elsrickle, sir” you answered in a haze. Another thief, you thought. But he had just stolen a creature. The thief sitting behind you had stolen something far more valuable.

You were running like your life depended on it. Maybe it did. You were late for Transfiguration. The next thing you knew, you had bumped into someone and you had fallen down. Today wasn’t your day.
“Well, you literally fell for me, didn’t you?” you heard him saying arrogantly. When he helped you up and realized it was you, he froze, let you go and lowered his eyes.
“Oh,Y/N,  I didn’t know it was you. Are you alright?” he breathed out. Yes, of course, he hadn’t realized it. You glared daggers at him and mouthed a forced ‘great’ before you walked away. You had just turned around the corner when you heard them and you halted.
“Really, Pads? Really?” James asked amused.
“Well, I got distracted” he answered defensively. You could hear the eye rolls.  "By what, Padfoot?“ Remus teased.
“Her!” he said breathlessly. You froze. What? 
“She is like - perfect and beautiful and smart and all the things I am not and I can’t even flirt with her. I am worse than Remus when it comes to her” he exclaimed in a dreamy but despaired state. You couldn’t help it. Your lips we’re forming a grin and your heart was beating faster. Merlin, save me.
 "Ask her out already” Remus said and from what you were guessing, not for the first time.
“She would never say yes, Moony” he said a bit gloomy.
You revealed yourself from your hiding spot but he had his back turned on you. “Why don’t you ask her? ” you softly questioned. His friends were smirking. He didn’t move or talk or… Function like a human being. James rolled his eyes and took initiative. 
“Will you go out with my idiotic friend?” he asked you on the verge of bursting out laughing.
“I would love to” you said melodically.
He turned around. His eyes were wide and his mouth was starting to form a smile.
“You are worse than Remus” you mumbled underneath your breath. But you loved it.
