Hi, I wanted to ask you if you know any fanfictions about Johnlock texting/letters/internet messages, something connected with that? :)

Hi Lovely!

I thought I didn’t have many of these, so I was so excited that I would be able to get this done in 10 minutes… it’s now 4 hours later and I finally got a rough list done for you and I STILL can’t find the one I wanted to add to this list! I’m so angry, because I THOUGHT it was an FFNet fic, but i can’t find it urg. Oh well. I hope you like what I have picked for you instead!

SEXTING / TEXTING:

  • Unquantifiable by 221b_hound (M, 2799 w, Ao3) - John remains a terrible and foul-tempered patient, but he does try to make up for it with pet names and text message silliness. In the meantime, Sally Donovan visits Baker Street for a hint about the Milverton case, and has to deal with a Sherlock Holmes who can’t find words big enough to thank her for saving John’s life at the warehouse. For afters, there’s a viewing of The Princess Bride. Part 33 of Unkissed
  • Happy anniversary by Salambo06 (E, 3772 w., Ao3) - John inhaled deeply, feeling his cock pulse under the silk gown, and he let his eyes travel on the lean body in front of him. Sherlock was kneeling on the bed, their bed, and the picture had been taken so John could perfectly see his bare chest and pelvis. But what mattered most, what made John harden rather quickly, was the pair of panties Sherlock was wearing in the picture. Black, string over each hip and laces that outlined Sherlock’s erect cock barely hidden under the soft underwear.
  • A Brand of Gold by aquabelacqua (M, 12,757 w. Ao3) - John sank deeper into the pillows, let the mist and blur of the wine settle around him, let it shore up his nerves and dim the warning signals that flashed dully in the back of his mind. He let the rest of the disappointment about Lucy and his strange accommodations and about the weekend as a whole fade into obscurity. He let the vital, missing piece snap into place as surely and as cleanly as if it had always been there. He was flirting with Sherlock Holmes. **MUST READ**
  • Come Home by hudders-and-hiddles(E, 3763, Ao3) -  When John leaves for a medical conference, Sherlock tries to entice him back home.
  • A Study In Auto-Signatures, Sniper Dolphins, and Sex Holidays by cwb  (E, 32,690, Ao3) John and Mary go on their sex holiday, and Sherlock is grumpy and pining about it. Part 1 of HOT DOLPHIN SEX **MUST READ**
  • The Real Meaning of Idioms by feverishsea (T, 21,691 w., Ao3) - After two weeks away, John finally texts Sherlock. He doesn’t expect Sherlock to respond. He doesn’t expect Sherlock to keep texting him. And he really doesn’t expect things to spiral out of control so rapidly.
  • Bread and Wine and Curry Once a Week by cwb (E, 8737 w., Ao3) - "I am not agitated. I’m just tired of it. The insinuations, the comments, that I have no… no interest in relationships, or sex.“ John and Sherlock muddle through a relationship. **FAVE!**
  • Entanglement by orphan_account (G, 3218 w., Ao3)On Christmas Eve, snow covers London, John visits Harry, and Sherlock and Mrs. Hudson untangle some knots. Lovely pining Sherlock fic. Love this one!
  • Definitions by siennna (T, 101,528 w., Ao3)Throughout his life, Sherlock Holmes has always taken facts and held them close like treasures, because in a world of complex emotions, unpredictability, and the unknown, logic has never failed him. Puzzles can always be solved and equations will always have an answer; he seeks and finds comfort in the steady absolution of facts and the knowledge that everything has a definition: an unchanging, consistent meaning. However, at age thirty-five he discovers the exception to all of his neat, tidy logic when he meets John Watson, the one person who evades definition and refuses to be easily categorized—and who makes Sherlock question his own previously unshakeable ideas about everything from life to love. (Apparently a WiP, but it feel complete enough, as the “last chapter” has been waiting for over 2 years)
  • Tease You Till You Come by phoenix089 (E, 6090 w., Ao3) - Initially, Sherlock was rather put out by John’s lack of presence on the case. But then he starts to recieve pictures, several of them, of an unexpected nature. The case is forgotten rather quickly after that.
  • Text Me When It’s Over by immaculately-flawed (K+, 1K+ w., FFnet) - After the fall Sherlock starts writing texts to John. Of course, he never sends them… Until he does by accident. Post Reichenbach fic but not angsty.
  • Texts and Tea by JillianWatson1058 (K, 959 w., ffnet) - A John who is woken up at 2:30 in the morning is not a happy John. Sherlock, frankly, doesn’t care. He just wants his tea.
  • Message Not Sent by Queerasil (K, 762 w. ffnet) - Sherlock texts John after the fall and during the hiatus. The messages are sent, but never received. Sequel to WORDLOCKED, TSTM, and Wait, How Do You Play This Game Again?
  • Iunctum by Fudgyokra (K, 221 w., FFNet) - He stood still for a long time, staring not so much at the words he’d been sent, but at the signature that marked them: A simple ‘SH,’ neatly tucked at the close of the words ‘I’ve missed you.’” A 221B ficlet; Sherlock’s return from the fall.
  • The Art Of Communication by StillWaters1 (T, 2K+ w., FFNet) - Lestrade was used to getting odd, non sequitur texts from Sherlock. But when “John went out for milk” was followed by a terse “two hours ago,” Lestrade immediately understood three things: John was missing, Sherlock was quietly panicking, and this could all end very, very badly.

LETTERS / EPISTOLARY

  • Letters by Jenna Flare (T, 2K+ w., FFNet) - John leaves letters on Sherlock’s grave as a method of coping. Sherlock reads them every week. Sherlock/John, John/Mary. T for swearing. Post-Reichenbach
  • Letters From Beyond by LittleBabeBlue (K, 637 w., FFNet) - A letter for John was found in Sherlock’s coat after he jumped. Post-Reichenbach.
  • Dear John by starwarsfreak95 (T, 601 w. FFNet) - Not all Dear John letters are bad. Sherlock tries to explain to John why he did what he did and how much John means to him.
  • Pen Pals by WerewolfDoctor (K, 2K w., FFNet) - Most people don’t become pen pals by one of them writing a not-suicide note. Then again, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson have never exactly been normal, have they?
  • In the Dark Hours by hubblegleeflower (E, 51,639 w., Ao3) - John, wounded and silent, drifts back to Baker Street for healing…and then goes home again. He visits, gets more upbeat, chattier, smiles, jokes… and still goes home again. Sherlock wants him to move back in - it just makes sense - but John shows no signs of doing so. This is the story of how John and Sherlock learn to say what needs to be said when they’re both so very, very rubbish at talking.
  • There’s Something Living in These Lines by teahigh (orphan_account) - (M, 4676 w., Ao3) - Two men, complete opposites in almost every way, who speak only in letters and pages torn from books.
  • Correspondence by Cleo2010 (T, 8031 w., Ao3) – Sherlock’s been spirited away on a case for Mycroft. Part of the deal was that he and John could communicate via letter until the case was completed. Maybe the cliche is true, absence does make the heart grow fonder. Or perhaps something is growing on the feet in the fridge. Read their letters month by month. Written after series one.
  • White Blank Page by SarahCat1717 (M, 11,936 w., Ao3) – Post-fall, Sherlock is off eliminating Moriarty’s crime web. He finds he misses John. He can’t divulge that he still lives, but he placates his need to communicate with John and still feel a connection with him by sending him blank letters. But over time, this writing exercise lends itself to Sherlock exploring his feelings for his friend. What will happen when Sherlock returns to London and the man he has been “writing” to regularly for the past two years? NOT S3 compliant. Mary who?
  • Get It All in Writing by aceofhearts61 (T, 2423 w., Ao3) – Sherlock and John write each other love notes. Part 8 of A Love with No Name
  • and stand there at the edge of my affection by coloredink (G, 2683 w., Ao3)
  • Winter of Life by You_Light_The_Sky (T, 5178 w., Ao3) – It was an experiment, really. On Christmas, Sherlock wrote to Santa asking for a friend. He got a broken toy soldier instead. This is the story of how he finds him again and again.
  • Dear John by wendymarlowe (E, 3 Parts, 30,802 w. Ao3) – With Sherlock dead, John eventually (under duress) makes a profile on an online dating site. And falls into a long-distance relationship with an enigmatic partner who reminds him of Sherlock in all the right ways. (Hint: it turns out to be Sherlock.)

BLOGS / SCRAPBOOKS / JOURNALS

  • The Case of the Vanishing Blog by Hekateras (K+, 2K+ w., FFNet) - Sherlock is in it for the hunt. John is in it for the action. Even so, the events at the Pool leave a mark on both, unwilling as they are to admit it.
  • One-Way Mirror by StormyNight108 (K+, 830 w. FFNet) - Post-Reichenbach one-shot. It’s been months since the incident, where a man lost his best friend. Slowly but surely, John’s life is starting to turn up a little. That night, his blog is updated to share good news to his followers, and one anonymous commentator is quick to share his happiness. It’s about as close to his friend as he can get right now.
  • Don’t Go Without Me by MirabileLectu (T, 1K+ w. FFNet) - Deep in the recesses of the cluttered space under John’s bed, far from the prying eyes of nosy landladies, there is a box.
  • To Sleep, Perchance to Smother Your Flatmate with a Pillow by Linpatootie (G, 5308 w., Ao3) - Sherlock wants to conduct a sleep study of sorts. John contemplates smothering him with a pillow. Part 1 of Two Coffees One Black One with Sugar Please
  • Journal of Truths by Goddess_of_the_Night (T, 2317 w., Ao3) - When John escorts Sherlock back to Baker Street from the tarmac, he discovers a journal that Sherlock has kept secret…that he has kept secrets in. What he sees when he opens it is nothing like what he expected. He expected scrawling notes of observations, or maths equations, or drawings of plants…anything but what he actually finds: confessions.
  • You fit me, Sherlock Holmes by orphan_account (G, 10,077 w., Ao3) – An unfortunate series of events leads to John accepting being a part of Sherlock’s study in physical intimacy. As the days pass by, John realizes he might be in for more than he bargained for. He doesn’t entirely mind.
  • Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder by cypress_tree (E, 10,669 w., Ao3) – John helps Sherlock with an experiment: for an entire month, they are not allowed to touch each other and must remain at least one metre apart at all times.
  • The Great Sex Olympics of 221B by XistentialAngst (E, 58,611 w., Ao3) – John Watson thinks Sherlock Holmes should admit that he, Watson, is more of an expert on sex than Sherlock is. But Sherlock refuses to concede the point. He comes up with an experiment plan that will resolve the issue. The results will determine who wins the prize. But sometimes even the best thought-out scientific study has unexpected consequences.

POST-ITS / LISTS

  • I Believe In Sherlock Holmes by Cennis (K, 2+K w., FFNet)When John came to Baker Street one Sunday about six months after the funeral and found an elegant wooden cane, expensive-looking yet sturdy, stuffed away in the shoe cupboard, he began ‘blogging’ again. It began with post-it notes. POST-FALL.
  • In case of emergency by AlessNox (K, 520 w., FFNet) - Sherlock is charged with making a list of what supplies they would need in case of an emergency.
  • The Three-Word Tin Collection by TheBookshelfDweller (K, 1K+ w., FFNet) - What happens when Sherlock has to store the things he wants to say to John while deconstructing Moriarty’s web, but the Mind palace proves an inadequate place to store them?
  • 206 Reasons by whitchry9 (K+, 1K+, FFNet) - John won’t wake up, so Sherlock lists all the reasons why he should. Because he appears to be a bit besotted. How inconvenient.
  • Because Blah Blah Blah Happy by cwb (E, 4,578 w., Ao3) – John is entirely done with the milk situation and gives Sherlock a list of shit he’s pissed about. Sherlock sets out to make John happy. John is happy. Sherlock makes his own list. They are both very, very happy.
  • The Trouble With Being Subtle. by VictoryCandescence (NR, 5429 w., Ao3) - In which Sherlock experiments, John misinterprets, and everyone else stands back and waits for the light to turn on.
  • The Importance of Torn Papers by MyLittleCornerOfSherlock (G, 2427 w., Ao3) – Little things make a big difference, even little notes of thanks. Small reminders to show he cares.
  • Our Enthusiasms Which Cannot Always Be Explained by withoutawish (M, 32,961 w., Ao3) – The list that is tacked haphazardly on the refrigerator of 221B reads, ‘Kidney(s), and/or a full cadaver (preferably male, late 30s, under six feet tall), bag of fresh toes, sixteen cow’s eyes (corneas retained), dual exhaust hand –held flame thrower, an unopened first edition copy of Joseph Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’, and no less than ten abhorrently gruesome murders in the upcoming month.” The one neatly hanging next to it simply reads, “Sex.” One of these lists is not John Watson’s. If John Watson were to put what he really wanted in list form, to live in a land somewhere beyond ‘almosts’ now that Sherlock Holmes has indeed returned to him, he would never be able to look his flatmate in the eye ever again.
  • See Recipe for Details by pandoras_chaos (E, 4,981, Ao3) – John knows Sherlock’s mouth will never water over the sweet smells of baking chocolate biscuits or a lovely roast chicken, but he’s watched Sherlock nick mince pies out of Mrs. Hudson’s fridge often enough to deduce that the man does have taste, albeit confusing and obscure.
    So John makes a list: Things Sherlock Likes

And I have a few on my Marked For Later List which also have this theme. I HAVE NOT READ THEM, so I don’t know what they are like; I was waiting for them to finish before I do. As well, Alexx has a tonne of lists you can check out too!

We were discussing the idea of 221b ficlets in other fandoms, and then the idea of a 007 specific format came up.

teahigh: What about 7Q?

teahigh: Seven words ending in Q

teahigh: Seven word fic!

 

First, we did a bunch of one-shots:

 

Moony: Bond sighed, and looked at him quizzically.

Moony: “Give it here, none of your quips.”

Moony: “Oh god, oh god. Harder. Deeper. Quickly!”

Moony: M glared at Bond and the Quartermaster.

Lacuna: Hush, Bond, you really must be quiet.

Nic: “Lie back M, think of the Queen.”

Lacuna: “Mile high, before we land in Qikiqtarjuaq?”

Nic: “You like it like that?” “Yes, quite.”

Lacuna: “Once more, and we’ll have orgasm quorum.”

Moony: He was adorable, if a bit quixotic.

Nic: “Come along Bond, no time to quibble.”

Nic: “Ah, Bond, but you will never quit.”

Moony: Q wheezed. “Bond, tied to the quay!”

Nic: Q was furious; “I said be quiet!”

Nic: bond passed M the tech for Q

Moony: Bond hit his sternum, interrupting his qi.

Moony: “Where is that damnable woman, Agent Quintal?!”

Nic: Bond was someone Q could not quantify

Lacuna: "I understand solace, but why pick ‘quantum’?”

 

And then we collaborated on a longer one:

 

Moony: The volume of blood made Bond queasy.

Moony: Normally, he was never one to quail.

Moony: This was more than he could quench.

Nic: “How bad does it look?” Q questioned

Nic: Bond lied in answer to that query

Nic: “You’ll fix up all right yet, Q.”

Moony: Bond managed to stop his muscles quaking.

Moony: Gritting his teeth, he sliced his quadriceps.

Moony: “Here, go. Take a couple of quarts.”

Otter: At the ambulance - “We’re over here! Quickly!”

Oh my god I meant JohnLock ! Not JohnKock omg I'm sorry !

hahaha,

I have a list of recs here, but I haven’t updated practically since I started this blog :/

Here are some others I’ve been meaning to add to this list (but…jeez there are so many more! and some of these are repeats from today’s angst recs). Sorry, I don’t have an order here, this is just “the cream” from the record I keep of everything I read:

Eek….that turned out to be a butt load….and I already cringe at keeping some out!

Magical Realism and Johnlock

Some of my favorite-ever fics from my favorite-ever genre.

I am not including Potterlock or His Dark Materials (really their own genres!), anything involving a very Dark or Murdery Sherlock or John, or Wingfic/Angels/Demons, and also I probably will not have a terrible lot of werewolves or vampires here because those are not really my thing.

Please remember to check the tags first before reading, especially for main character death which is featured in some of these (in an impermanent fashion).

Please remember that I am a human being with my own personal opinions and tastes and therefore stories that other people might find quintessential may not be featured here.

If there is a fic you love/fic you wrote that is not on the list for some reason, it’s not a personal slight.  It just means it wasn’t my thing or that I didn’t get around to reading it (or that I got very lazy at the end of making this list and just stopped reading and curating before I got to that one).

I will do my best to @ authors if I know their URLs.

All summaries are from AO3, none of them are written by me.

Bullet points by my special favorites.

Enjoy the magic and the sparkles. 🎇

loversinger0619  asked:

I love your fic rec lists! I am looking for fics with Johnlock trapped in a small spaces (ie: closets or trunks) or fics with dirty talk. Thank you!

Hi Lovely!! 

You know, I know I’ve read quite a bit of fics with the tight spaces scenario, but only two come to mind right now because I just recently re-read them to add to my fic rec lists:

• Just a Kiss by emmagrant01 (E, 19,695w. || Case Fic, 5+1, For a Case) – Five times John and Sherlock kissed because of a case and one time they kissed for real. (Chapter 7 is the one you want :D)

• Closeted by sussexbound (T, 6,115 w. || Love Confessions, Truth or Dare, First Kiss) – John and Sherlock end up trapped in a closet overnight while on a case. John has an idea on how to pass the time. Part 1 of Intimacy

And Here’s a few with Dirty Talk:

• Onomatopoeia by aquabelacqua (M, 6,904 w.|| Sherlock POV, First Time/Kiss, Chair Sex, Hair Pulling, Dirty Talk) – Something is the matter with John. Sherlock is determined to figure out what it is. Mark his words.

• Perfect Solo by Itsallfine (E, 2,384 w. || Frottage, Fantasy, Sex Toys, Dirty Talk, Solo) – Sherlock couldn’t decide how he wanted to have John that night. (The one where Sherlock uses his box of sex toys to take himself apart in every way John might have him.) 

• Sherlock and John Go Clubbing by wendymarlowe (E, 4,717 w. || Dirty Talk, Coming in Pants / Untouched) – John pinched the bridge of his nose - even for Sherlock, this was a new level of no bloody boundaries. “You want me to go with you to a gay club, wait around twiddling my thumbs while I let you get pawed by a criminal, then out-flirt him and talk you into coming home with me instead?” Part 32 of John and Sherlock’s Kinky First Times

• A Brand of Gold by aquabelacqua (M, 12,757 w. || Sex / Dirty Talk, Phone Sex, Solo, Pining, POV John) – What am I doing? he wondered. The answer came back at once: Flirting. He let the vital, missing piece snap into place as surely and as cleanly as if it had always been there. He was flirting with Sherlock Holmes.

• There’s Something Living in These Lines by teahigh (orphan_account) (M, 4,676 w. || Pining, Angst, Love Letters, UST, Dirty Talk, Hiatus) – Two men, complete opposites in almost every way, who speak only in letters and pages torn from books.

• And if you say the word, I could stay with you by CaitlinFairchild (E, 12,842 w. || Domestic Fluff, Dirty Talk, Anal, Fluff and Smut) – What Sherlock thinks is, On the day I die, be it in a dirty alley at forty or in my bed at eighty, the last thing I will remember is tonight, the way you looked at at me on the snowy pavement, cheeks pink with the cold, breath puffing in frosty white clouds, your heart in your eyes and snowflakes in your hair. I will remember that single perfect moment in my life, that moment I knew I had everything I ever wanted, and whatever happens next, I will die content. What he says is simply, “Marry me.”

• A Cure For Boredom by emmagrant01 (E, 81,665 w. || Dirty Talk, Threesomes, Light Dom/Sub, Sex Club, Experiments, Anal, Mildly Dubious Consent) – They’d never talked about sex in the year they’d known each other. Well, that wasn’t quite correct: Sherlock had never said a word about sex; John had bemoaned his personal dearth of it on many occasions.


I hope this list suffices a bit! As always, feel free to add some of your faves, Lovelies! 

anonymous asked:

Hey there! Im so sorry to bother you! Is there a place where I can find a huge list of fic recs? I'm looking for angst, probably s3, I'm keen for fics tackling sherlocks drug issues, either of their PTSD, nightmares etc. Just maximum suffering really! Could you rec any or direct me to pre existing lists? Thanks cxx

I don’t do a bunch of angst/drug reading personally, but here are some ones that I have read and loved, I probably have a ton more if you want more but these are my favs, and of course some links to Alexx’s recs

s3 angst: 

Eggs and Toast and Love Confessions by allonsys_girl

On the Other Side by Mildredandbobbin

Tiebreaker by earlgreytea68

Ode to a Well-Worn Chair by hogwartswitch


Nightmares/PTSD

Unspoken221b_hound

Drug Issues…ish?

Back in the Day by KeelieThompson1

Supernova by Spark_Writer

AlexxPhoenix42 lists: PTSD + this + this, drugs + this + this, nightmares, all lists

anonymous asked:

Do you think you might be able to do a list of sleepy fics? Explicit or not? I really really love just them sleeping together. Thank you so much this blog is incredible

Thank you, anon!

Where the Sun Never Shines by teahigh (T, 11k words, ptsd, hurt/comfort)

John is a mess. Sherlock can’t fix him, but he tries. That’s good enough, John thinks.

Guided Meditation by hannah_baker (T, sleep, mediatation)

“You’re exhausted,” John said, his voice soft and compassionate. Sherlock nodded. “But you’re not sleepy,” he continued, noticing the tell-tale paradoxical signs of physical tiredness and mental alertness. These twin traits were the foundation of Sherlock Holmes.

Nightmares by trajektoria (T, pillow fight, not really sleeping)

John is not the only one who is tormented by nightmares. Even the great Sherlock Holmes needs support from time to time. And there’s no better place to look for comfort than a bed. A bed shared with someone, preferably.

Just For This Moment by kim47 (G, ficlet)

“Sleep,” Sherlock tells him, sitting up straight and returning his eyes to the news, a small smile hovering on his face.

The Quiet Moments by belovedmuerto (T, cuddling)

Cuddling. Lots of it.

Keep reading

anonymous asked:

Hi! Could you indicate any fic that include the exchange of letters or Morse code? Thanks :)

Hi Nonny! 

Absolutely! I’ve made a fic rec list here for Epistolary / Letters / Texting awhile back; here are some additional related-topic fics I’ve finished recently that I haven’t added yet:

Achieving the Together-Coloured Instant by teahigh (E, 20,776 w. || Est. Rel, PTSD, Codependency, Fluff & Angst, H/C, Smut, Demisexual Sherlock, Experiments) – John wonders if this is how it’s going to be: A life speaking in code, because they’re both too stupid to figure out how to say, “I love you.”

Don’t Leave Anything Out by lookupkate (E, 27,422w. || Epistolary, Falling in Love, Misunderstandings, Alternate First Meeting) – The first letter John writes home from Afghanistan is meant to go to a woman he went on only one date with. How it ends up in Sherlock’s hands is completely innocent. What happens next is not. What do you do when you find out the person you’re in love with has been lying about something as monumental as who they are? What do you do when you’re the one who lied? How on earth do you put the pieces back together?

between each beat are words unsaid by darcylindbergh, hudders-and-hiddles (T, 107,998 w. || Epistolary, Slow Burn, Friends to Lovers, Angst, Happy Ending) – On their wedding night, John and Sherlock gift each other with the things they each said when the other could not hear, the things they each put down where the other could not see: a collection of writings that illustrate the way their love for one another has grown over the years. Part 1 of between each beat

–––––––

And here are a couple Morse Code fics I have tagged in my bookmarks!

Tap by doctorcaseyholmes (G, 896 w. || Fluff, Morse Code, First Kiss, Love Confessions) – Sherlock finds an unobtrusive way to let out his feelings for John.

Extraordinary by queenoftrivia (G, 2860 w. || Fluff, Marriage Proposal, Morse Code, Est. Rel, Violins) – Sherlock’s deduced that John’s going to Italy to buy him a violin. Even the greatest detective alive makes a few mistakes.

–––––––

I hope these will keep you satisfied, Nonny! Feel free, all, to add your own! I know there are way more out there, possibly I’ve read a few more than this, just haven’t had time to go through my bookmarks! Still categorizing all 1000+ bookmarks I have so I can share the world with y’all!

anonymous asked:

Help!! I'm going on vacation this week and i need some good johnlock fic to read in the hotel. Can you rec some good (longer) stories, maybe mutli-chaps? I feel like I've read everything already and I need something GOOOOD! I like angst, fluff, smut, parentlock, I love it all! thank you!!

Oh, man!  Okay, let’s see.  Probably you’ve come across a bunch of these already, but hey, can’t hurt!  These stories range from big-bang slams clocking in around 8,000 words or more, to multi-chapter, even multi-work epics.

First I’m just gonna name some of the more famous behemoth fics in fandom, just in case you haven’t encountered them (or would like to read them again).

Drouk, by merripestin: omegaverse, captivity, non-con, relationship angst

Indecorous, by basingstoke: growing relationship, exploration of kink, polyamorous relationship, Sherlock and John are both a bit not-good

The Cornish Horror by finangler: casefic, beginning relationship

The Progress of Sherlock Holmes, by ivyblossom

The Quiet Man, by ivyblossom

Watches verse, by bendingsignpost

Ten Days, by engazed

A Cure for Boredom, by emmagrant

Stranger at the Gate, by bendingsignpost

Bel Canto, by bendingsignpost

The Loss of Flesh and Soul, by deuxexmycroft (WIP)

Dehumanize Me, by deuxexmycroft: John and Sherlock meet in prison.  Non-con, manipulation, John is pretty darn fucked up in this one.

Reaction, by blind_author: after Moriarty sexually assaults him, John puts himself back together.  Sherlock helps.  A heartwarming story about recovery.

Relatively Easy, by OTP221b: John is a faerie-hunter who trades himself to faerie Sherlock in exchange for kidnapped children.  I felt like this one ended just as it really got going, but it’s very cool anyway.

The Diranian Effect, xsilverdreamsx: classic fantasy, where Sherlock is a wizard and he and John get into all sorts of trouble trying to solve a case.

I Used to Live Alone before I Knew You, by etothepii: kinda sort Good Omens fusion, where Sherlock is a demon and Mycroft is an angel and John is John.

Guidelines, by withloweredvoices: John is the Good Soldier, an exiled angel so old he barely even remembers who he was anymore.  Sherlock is his charge.

One Day at a Time, by keeliethompson1: John got hooked on drugs while Sherlock was ‘dead.'  The story of Sherlock’s return and John’s recovery.

Breathe You In, by lapislazuli: Sentinel verse.  John is openly an omega, and secretly a guide.

Wee Doctor, by AmericanJedi: This one’s a real epic.  All together, the stories clock in at over 200,000 words.  It’s fantasy/scifi and a bit of horror, high adventure, just all around awesome.

Blue on Blue, by lindentreeisle: action/adventure, in which John’s past in a military group so clandestine it doesn’t even have a name comes back to haunt him and Sherlock.

Playing the Game, by keeliethompson1: my favorite vamplock series of all, in which Sherlock and John are not the soft toothless kind of vampires.

How to Tame Your Dragon, by mad_maudlin: another high fantasy one.  John is a dragon.  Sherlock is a wizard who decides to capture and tame him.  Non-con, captivity, stockholming.

The Once and Future BAMF, by winter_of_our_discontent: in which Sherlock is a catastrophically bored and ancient Merlin, killing time by playing detective while waiting for his Arthur to show up again.  Guess who’s Arthur?

Getting Better, by nox_candida: one of the few parentlocks I really really like, this is the story of how two single dads and their remarkable kids meet and form a family.

Modus Operandi, by joolabee: After Sherlock’s death, John becomes Moran

Cost of Living, by americanjedi: John is part monster, and he’ll do anything for Sherlock.  Bittersweet.

On Your Knees, by myswordfishmind: fusion with the movie Secretary. 

Left, by lifeonmars: right-handed people have superpowers.

Kill Tonight, by perryvic and zaganthi: after Sherlock and Moriarty die, John and Moran bond over not having much to live for.  Surprisingly, they turn out to be good for each other…as long as John overlooks Moran being a crime lord.  (It all gets a bit awkward when Sherlock comes back.).  Another epic monster: 233k, multiple works.  John/Sebastian Moran.

The Moment Pleasantly Frightful, by teahigh: Sherlock and John slowly repair their relationship after Sherlock returns.

Not Yet Dead, by castiron: What I have in my bookmark note: “Excellent and unusual reincarnation story/casefic. Sherlock drives me batty in this one–as the story headed into the climax, I found him to be a childish, selfish, willfully blinded asshole whose obsession everyone else had to pay for–but other than wanting to slap him stupid and scream at him by the end, it was really a fantastic, wonderfully-plotted, excellently-characterized story. Also there is copious Mycroft being cool and brotherly in his own inimitable way, and the whole story is saturated with awesome BAMF!Sally.”

Love Letters, by helicidae: daaaaaark fic where Moriarty tortures and terrorizes John mentally via horrible letters, and Sherlock just about goes off his rocker trying to protect him.

We’re All a Little Mad Here, by angelblack3: more WAY DARK fic.  Sherlock is flat-out evil.  John is held captive, tortured, raped, and fights to survive and maintain sanity.

Once More, with Feeling, by redcarrigan: To put off his meddlesome, matchmaking mother, John convinces Sherlock to play the role of his significant other. Unparalleled awkwardness ensues.

Aaaaand I will leave it there.  I am about halfway through my AO3 bookmarks with this list, so if you still want to find more, you can look here and keep heading deeper! http://archiveofourown.org/users/PrettyArbitrary/bookmarks?page=14

Hello I've a silly question. I discovered teahigh through your recs on ao3 and only now realized that she seems to have left the fandom????

Yes, she did.  I miss her!  She was so lovely and smart and interesting to talk to, not to mention a beautiful, beautiful writer.  It wasn’t anything anyone did.  She got so she needed to pull back from the anxiety of social interaction, I think.

I hope it has helped and that she’s doing well.
