Hi! Do you know any good time travel or parallel universe fanfics? I really liked Misdialed and The World on his Wrist. Thanks so much!

Hello! I was honestly surprised by how many of these I actually have, I hope you enjoy!

Groundhog Day: John has to relive the same day time and again. The title speaks for itself, really.

World Enough, and Time: John’s morning starts badly, and it only gets worse, until it shatters his life completely and takes everything he cares for with it. The next morning is the same. And the next. As the past repeats itself John can only look at Sherlock in confusion and wonder what he knows that John does not.

Without Knowing How: John grows up reading about a fictional detective named Sherlock Holmes but, after nearly dying in Afghanistan, finds himself in a world where Sherlock Holmes is very much real.

John’s Midnight Garden (I haven’t read this one so I’m not sure if it’s parallel universe or not but it seems like it is?): I’m not sure if the OP has ever read Tom’s Midnight Garden, but it’s what I thought of immediately when I read this prompt and I make no apologies about any similarities between this fic and that book (but I will say that it is by Phillipa Pearce, not me, I don’t own any of it, and it’s brilliant - it’s also one of the only books in the world that makes me cry every time I read it, without fail).

Waiting To Be Known: John Watson has been saving Sherlock Holmes life for a very long time, even if he doesn’t know it.

A Second Chance: Sherlock Holmes opens the matchbox from The Sign of Three and finds himself years in the past, back to that first dinner at Angelo’s with a much younger John Watson. Is he dreaming?

The Repeated Image: Sherlock is reborn into the same life every time he dies, and he finds John in them all

If you know a fic like this, please reblog or reply with a title and author or a link!

She has never believed in supernatural things. It all feels like fiction to her. But lately, she’s been lying awake at night and fantasizing about parallel universes.

Most often, she fantasizes that their paths never crossed. In this universe, she still smiles at strangers. She still dreams about love. She has no clue that somewhere, in another world, there was a boy who loved her very much. She is not haunted by the fact that the very same boy destroyed her. She is still so happy.

So, as she stares at the ceiling fan, listening to the clock tick toward 1am, she wishes so badly that she could exist in that universe instead. Because, after all, maybe it isn’t really true what they say. Maybe it isn’t better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all. Because maybe never loving at all is far less painful.
