I want more scenes where Joan doesn’t simply walk in on Sherlock doing an experiment but actively seeks out these moments to specifically disrupt him as revenge for waking her up constantly.
I want this to turn into an all-out pranking war in which Joan recruits Alfredo so Sherlock enlists Ms. Hudson and it isn’t until they both start loudly arguing over who gets Marcus during one of their cases that Papa Gregson steps in and puts a stop to the shenanigans. And then probably denies wholeheartedly that he ever helped Joan even though let’s be honest Joan is his favorite child
Observing isn’t the same thing as seeing…or so Sherlock claims. Yet
the people in his life deserve more observation than he gives them.
Each chapter is centered around one of the “regular irregulars” in Joan
and Sherlock’s world.
A gorgeous fic that highlights some of the show’s secondary players, from Ms Hudson and Captain Gregson to Teddy and Emily. It’s beautifully written and absolutelly fascinating in showing how all these characters relate to Joan and Sherlock but also their lives outside of them.
Follows Season 3 ep. 14 (The Female of the Species) This is how I imagined the rest of the evening might go.
this episode all I could think was “Seriously, Sherlock, just go ahead
and sit at her feet already. I promise she will not be surprised.”
decides to spend the night and test a theory she has about Sherlock.
They might not have a “normal” relationship but it works for them.
Comfort for both characters ensues.
The author’s summary is just about perfect. This fandom has some really great Dom/Sub fics and this one is no exception. It’s a short story but so great, just the thing if you want a sweet, partner-y fic.
Joan Watson is having a very bad day. She thinks she’s the only one, but
quickly discovers Sherlock is having a worse one, for reasons that
catch her off guard. Lots of feels with hurt/comfort.
This is one of my absolute favourites. Without giving too much away: Sherlock thinks something happened to Joan and freaks the hell out, which leads to a very long talk about love and all it entails and how he is a goddamned emotional mess. Also, it features the very important image of Sherlock holding Joan so close he has to be told to put her down almost at gunpoint.
‘It’s so different,’ she says, and he angles his
head towards her while pouring hot water into the teacup, ‘it’s like the
world makes no sense,’ it’s like she’s navigating uncharted waters, she
doesn’t say, thinking it will sound too dramatic. He nods seriously, and she takes it to mean he feels the same way.
An accident leaves Joan deaf and Sherlock blind. They learn to deal.
An amazing fic that will make your heart ache so bad but it’s worth every single minute of pain. Because, even in an extreme situation, Joan and Sherlock always find a way to prevail together.
This fic is such a treat and charming as hell. it has everything: A baby. A cool case. Ms Hudson being her smart, beautiful self. Sherlock staying at home to take care of the baby (and being wonderful at it) while Joan and Ms Hudson solve the case and get to be badass action ladies.
I’m not gonna lie, this is a very painful fic. It also creates a really wonderful backstory for Sherlock (it contains some delicate themes so maybe check the warnings), and it has one of the greatest –and closest to ACD canon– takes on Irene I’ve ever read. Sherlock’s history of despair until the magnificent ray of hope that is Joan Watson.
