B here with another recommendation for you! We’ve got a few days left in our month of AU’s & I’d like to point you towards one of my favorite ongoing Sherlock fanworks.
Artist Navydream has been drawing a Sherlock/Sandman comic & it is fantastic! If you’ve never read Sandman, don’t worry - you can still pick up with the first part & not be lost. For the bare bones of Sandman, there are seven Endless that have lived a very long time - Dream, Despair, Desire, Destiny, Delirium, Destruction, & Death. Sherlock is represented as Dream here, or Morpheus, & “is both lord and personification of all dreams and stories, all that is not in reality (which, in turn, Dream may define by his existence)” [from Wiki]. He literally has a dream palace he conjured up!
The comic finds John without a Sherlock, having his nightmares of the war interrupted by a tall, dark stranger who won’t explain himself. As the series goes on, there are hints of something greater happening with John that he isn’t aware of, but Sherlock knows about.
I really love the pairing of Sherlock characters with their Sandman counterparts - Moriarty is scheming & dastardly as Desire. Irene is a sassy Death & there’s a tie for my favorite: Henry as Delirium or Mycroft as Destiny [it’s perfect!]. Of course, the story is great, but the artwork is lovely too. I would buy a bound book of this in a heartbeat.
You can start out reading the comic in chronological order here & be sure to check out Navydream’s tumblr as well for some awesome colored  pieces  as well as lots of other great art & AU work.
The wonderfully talented Navydream has an amazing comic called Endless Dream(a Sherlock/The Sandman crossover), and she recently made a post about how the new promo picture was her comic in a nutshell.
I agree with her, and I wanted to take it a step further by trying to make the promo picture resemble her comic a little more.
Guys. There are no words for how much I am in love with this. I was pleasantly surprised with my lines, especially given the fact I’d never drawn any sort of flowing fabric, but then tjihopp went and just made them bloody amazing. I mean, good god, look at that. She coloured everything and made that beautiful, beautiful background. I’d write more but ugh, I’m overwhelmed. ♥

I dream an endless dream in a soundless view. At the night of the falling stars, if we grip both little hands, the stars deliver our wish to the far sky and call the happy morning.” II ✭
