Me? Fifth most popular Tumblr for Sherlock imagines? Seriously? I really never did expect that to happen, let alone have nearly 700 followers. You guys keep it up, by my birthday I’ll be at 1K. Unbelievable. 

Here’s Sherlock oneshot 1 out of 3 for the night!

Requested by Anon: There aren’t many people that Sherlock Holmes finds himself extremely protective of, let alone drawn to. When you leave 221B for a date, he can’t help himself to plant a bug on you. We all know that never goes well.

Being John Watson (pt. 2)

Colleague, friend, date, (confirmed) bachelor, boyfriend, husband

Dying right now because in the opening to LADY, Watson comes home from the Turkish bath and Holmes is like.. “But why Turkish?” and Watson’s deflecting like “Huh? what are you talking about, what, were you asking about my boots, I can’t read suddenly–” and Holmes just smiles and calls him out like the TURKISH BATH Watson I know you were there but WHY and Watson tells him and asks how he knew he was there and Holmes gets a “mischevious twinkle” in his eye, and then a few stories later (both by publishing date and by in-universe timeline), ILLU starts with “Both Holmes and I had a weakness for the Turkish bath” and them relaxing under some sheets in an “isolated corner where two couches lie side by side”


For people who still (stupidly) label Moriarty a serial killer or murderer

You’re so wrong it’s hilarious.

Serial killers kill multiple people, one by one, over a period of time. BUT the kills always have a pattern. The victims typically fit a certain profile. The method is usually the same.

Mass murderers kill multiple people all at once. Like Hitler. Or the guy that shot up Pulse Night Club.

Moriarty doesn’t kill people for a living. He doesn’t like getting his “hands dirty” remember? He sponsors people to commit their own crimes and arranges for people to be killed. Jeff Hope and Raoul the PoolBoy (for example) killed their victims themselves. Moriarty just gave them the supplies to do so. This makes him an ACCOMPLICE to murder, not a murderer.

Canonically, Moriarty only killed one person by his own hand: Carl Powers.

His kill count is equal to Watson’s and Sherlock’s. Sherlock killed Magnussen but I don’t see you calling Sherlock a murderer or serial killer. Watson killed Jeff Hope but you defend him and call him “soft” and “smol”. Watson had shown more violent tendencies than Sherlock and Moriarty combined. Watson was also a soldier so he probably killed MANY more people

So. Either Sherlock, Moriarty, and Watson are ALL murderers. Or you all shut the fuck up


Bondlock Time!!!!

00Q / Johnlock: Meeting Parents!!!!

First Part:

Quentin Holmes , aka Q , the quartermaster of MI6 and boyfriend of the agent 007, James Bond, receives a call from his parents, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, to ask him that he take his partner for a weekend with the family. 

Quentin accepts and gives the news to James during a mission. James tells him that he knows Sherlock , and he worked with him on a mission many years ago and they were not on good terms, but agrees to go with him to tells Sherlock that he loves his son. 

However, Sherlock is not happy with the relationship that his son has with the agent, he is willing to use all his have to force him to leave alone Quentin. John, his husband, tries to reason with him, but Sherlock is a genius, and he is very foolish at such times.

Finally, Quentin and James arrive at 221B Baker Street to visit Quentin’s parents, but when they meet, the contempt between Sherlock Holmes and James Bond returns.”

Fandom: Sherlock

Word count: 1867

Characters: Sherlock x reader, Lestrade, John

Warnings: mentions of graphic murder and drug dealinge, Sherlock being arrogant

Summary: Requested by @littlemercedesstuff. Lestrade, your boss, asks you to work a case with two of his friends.

You liked it in your office. It was calm and peaceful, organised just the way you liked it, and no one disturbed you there. You could work by yourself, without anyone else to distract you. Not to mention that you had an amazing view- it was three floors up, and you could see what felt like the whole of London.

And you needed the peace to try and work out this particular case. It had been bugging the police for weeks- a lot of couples had been brutally murdered in their flats. They were all young, apparently happy, and on the way to being successful, but there was no apparent motive and no other link between them. Whoever was killing them was also apparently very good at hiding their tracks.

Leaning back in your chair, you flicked through the latest file, hoping to see something you’d missed. These murders felt personal to the killer. At the crime scenes you’d attended, you had picked up a sense of viciousness, of the killer letting go- maybe taking their anger out on the couples? That would suggest that they were in a relationship they weren’t happy in, but still didn’t give you any idea who they might be. Or who they would attack next.

Oh my dear crimson-winter & elessar-undomiel; I can do much worse. Victorian!Johnlock coming right up:

  • They walk arm in arm whenever they can because it is the only touch that is allowed in the light of day. John always angles his hand in such a way that the outside world can’t see how he is gripping and stroking Sherlock’s arm with his thumb though.
  • When they’re in the safety of the flat, the sun has set and Mrs Hudson has retired for the night, John closes their door and they settle on the sofa together, breathing each other in, clinging to each other. 
  • They fall into bed together but they know that John must leave for his own room before the sun comes up and Sherlock hates it, he hates that he cannot love the man like he wants to. 
  • They have to hide their moans and kisses and touches. They have to hide the love in their voices when they call out to each other. 
  • And John hates it. He hates how Sherlock calls him ‘Watson’ because he misses the way Sherlock’s says his christian name when they’re alone and hidden. 
  • One night is gets too much. Oscar Wilde is on trial and even though Sherlock will never say it, John can see that he is terrified. He is scared to death that they will be caught. That someone will see. So they flee the city they both love so much and they cling to each other, whispering ‘I love you’ over and over again. 
  • And with on a trembling exhale, Sherlock breaths out the words against John’s neck; ‘if only we had lived in another time, my dear John… I could have loved you like you deserve.’
