This list was created by comparison of current number of fics with data gathered for the 2015 AO3 Ship Stats. Values are only approximate, but this list gives some idea of the most popular pairings in the last 13 months (from July 2015 to August 2016).
There are 63 M/M pairings on the list, 19 F/M, 7 F/F, 5 Gen and 6 Other.
(Please note that on AO3, ‘Name & Name’ indicates platonic
relationships (Gen), while ‘Name/Name’ is used for romantic pairings.)
Of the 200 names on the list, 34 are women and 7 are characters of ambiguous gender. 49 are POC, and 15 are racially ambiguous.
For more information about the AO3 Ship Stats project, please check out this year’s post, and the accompanying FAQs. A text-only version of this data is beneath the cut.

So… So… Come on, then. Take mine. Take my memories. But I hope you’ve got a big appetite because I’ve lived a long life and I’ve seen a few things. I walked away from the Last Great Time War. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment, until nothing remained. No time. No space. Just me. I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a madman. I’ve watched universes freeze and creations burn. I have seen things you wouldn’t believe. I have lost things you will never understand. And I know things, secrets that must never be told and knowledge that must never be spoken. Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze. So come on then! Take it! Take it all, baby!

The Final Problem:
The Forced I Love You and the Missing Sherlolly Scene
Many have discussed to what extent Sherlock meant the “I love you,” and others also question why the writers would leave out the scene where Sherlock and Molly reunite. A sincere “I love you” can easily feel like a leap because it’s Sherlock, but the Sherlock first seen in series one was an illusion, and Eurus was digging deep trying to unearth the real him. Like classeyspanks said (x), the entire scene was vivisection. Euros was peeling back Sherlock like an onion, and though some have called the missing scene an oversight, there is a strong possibility that it was intentionally left out, and if so, it is not a sign of Molly’s insignificance, but could arguably be proof of canon.
“Say It Like You Mean It”
Why the Fake “I Love You” Theory Doesn’t Hold Up For Sherlock to become truly vulnerable, Eurus needed Sherlock to become wholly invested in that game. She couldn’t afford for him to be detached - to be in such control of his own emotions that his mask remained in place. The scene conveys that it was not forcing Molly to utter “I love you” that made Sherlock emotional. Of course, it pained him to see her in pain, and it pained him to be the source of her agony. Yet, through the beginning of the conversation, he remained in control of his emotions. He had been confident that he could get her to say it. When he ordered her to “Say it anyway,” his insistent expression revealed that he truly expected the next words out of her mouth to be compliance. She was going to say “I love you,” and he was going to save her. He still remained in control.
Then, Molly ordered him to say “I love you.” Though unexpected, it shouldn’t have thrown him. If three words were the only condition to saving her life, most people would have said it. John would have, even Mycroft was in the back making incoherent noises, trying to stay silent, but also trying to say “HURRY UP.” So why did Sherlock start to unravel when Molly asked him to say it back?
There was a very important parallel in that scene. While Molly struggled to say “I love you” to Sherlock because she meant it, Sherlock also wrestled with his own “I love you.” Had he not said just minutes earlier that the words were “very easy” to say? Now, they sat stuck in his throat, and he, the man who never begs for mercy, would rather look at his sister with his eyes pleading, “Please don’t make me do this.”
[General Audiences] The Doctor drops in on an old friend, and Bill finds it almost impossible not to immediately fall in love with her.
Everyone is in love with Kate Stewart. Come on. You can’t not. I wrote a little something to satisfy my Bill/Kate thirst, just for the time being, until someone comes along and writes something that I can sit and pour over for the next ten years. Also Jac is here. And not dead. Like I said before, I’m self-indulgent. Shoot me.

She stumbled into their flat, barely remembering to flip the deadbolt
lock on the front door. The brightness of eight am light hurt her
stinging, exhausted eyes, so she stumbled to the window and drew the
drapes. She knew she should eat something — considering she hadn’t eaten
in well over 14 hours — but right now, sleep was her number one
priority. She collapsed onto the sofa, one leg and one arm hanging off.
But then her husband made an appearance.
She peeled one eye open.

smiled lazily as he pulled her off of the sofa, and led her into their
bedroom. “Gonna feel so good. Close the blinds,” she ordered quietly.
“Need it dark.”
“Mmmmm. You do like it dark, don’t you?” He
removed his tie as he scurried to the window. “Love the dark. Dark is
brilliant. Well, not brilliant. Unbrilliant.”
