Well, in case you missed it from what I've been writing lately, I've been reading a LOT of Sherlock/John slash. One thing each of these stories has in common is that it made me go weak in the knees. That's probably not all they have in common, but I'll leave what the other items are as an exercise for the reader. I could seriously rec more than this, but this will do for a start.

Stringplay, [archiveofourown.org profile] PrettyArbitrary. Author says: "John secretly plays fiddle. Sherlock and his violin seduce him into a threesome."

Lisa says: Sometimes I'll read things that make me literally dizzy with the hotness of them. This is one of those things. Actually, just go read all of PrettyArbitrary's stuff, it'll save me the trouble of listing them all out. There's humor and sex and feelings all over the place. (Be warned though: "Cross Wired" is disturbing as HELL. I take no responsibility for your brain if you find yourself getting turned on by it.)

in deed accomplish our designs, [archiveofourown.org profile] greywash. Author says: When I don't touch you it's a mistake in any life, in each place and forever. Set after and in the same universe as "the sensation of falling as you just hit sleep"; orders of magnitude more plotless and filthy. WIP.

Lisa says: She lies like a lying thing. There's a plot, and a good one too. Of course, this being the fabulous greywash, there's a lot of very explicit sex, but it's NOT typical fanfic sex. There're misunderstandings, things don't always work, and so on. Also a lot of John and Sherlock trying to negotiate what it actually means, now that they're in a relationship. She's brilliant, and I kind of hate her for it.

Performance in a Leading Role, [archiveofourown.org profile] Mad_Lori. Author says: Sherlock Holmes is an Oscar winner in the midst of a career slump. John Watson is an Everyman actor trapped in the rom-com ghetto. When they are cast as a gay couple in a new independent drama, will they surprise each other? Will their on-screen romance make its way into the real world?

Lisa says: OMG. Fluffy and beautiful and romantic and it SHOULD NOT WORK, but it does. And it's full of some serious meta about the film industry, which was fascinating. This is a fandom classic for a reason.

If Metal Had a Choice and The Overflow, [archiveofourown.org profile] anarmydoctor.

Author says: "If Metal Had a Choice": "Sherlock has his heart in the throat when he says Take my hand, and the metal of their handcuffs shines proud and thankful, because that’s the instant, that’s the second, that’s the reason why if metal had a choice, its choice would be now and here."

"The Overflow": "And sex, our sex, you and I having sex, is just the dirty negotiation between your pace and mine, between your flow and mine sharing the same track, and when that happens, when we converge, then we are stronger, mightier than ever, we are a torrent, and that’s the point of no return, the overflow."

Lisa says: anarmydoctor is a poet. Seriously. I have never read anyone who uses words the way she does. She claims it's because English is not her first language, and okay maybe. But still. Absolutely stunning. My only complaint is that I wish she wrote MORE.

I'm about two-thirds of the way through An Avalanche of Detour Signs by gyzym and it is just LOVELY. Molly Hooper is one of my favorite characters, and this novel-length fic is--so far--doing right by her. And pairing her with Lestrade in a heartbreaking and very realistic way. I do believe I've found my second ship. :)

Damn you, Sherlock fandom. Damn you all to hell for being so damned talented.

Two Two One Bravo Baker by abundantlyqueer: Nope. Don't read slash, don't like AUs. Nope. Except why did I devour this 110,000 word piece of AU casefic loaded with plenty of sex in less than 12 hours (including some time spent sleeping)? Seriously, I COULD NOT STOP READING.

Mycroft sends Sherlock to Afghanistan 7 months before the events of "A Study in Pink" to solve a war atrocity that threatens to bring down the British and American governments. Sherlock meets Captain John Watson and the rest of his squad and good lord there's a lot of sex. Well-written, makes-you-think-your-head-might-explode sex.

But the thing is, if the author isn't military, they've damn well done their homework. It does a fantastic job of putting you right there in Afghanistan with the British military. I have never read anything like this. And if anyone's paying attention, my birthday is coming up in July, and I would very much like a bamf!John in uniform to show up on my doorstep about then. Only, you know, interested in women. :) ETA: Wait! I have it from abundantlyqueer directly that bamf!John is, in fact, bi. Be still my beating heart.

Psychophysical Examinations of Perceptual Effects of Differential Somatic Stimulation (or: Fuck Off And Leave My Bloody Balls Alone, Would You, Sherlock?) by jedusaur: THE TITLE. The title made me read it. It manages to be funny as hell and more than a little hot at the same time. So much geek there.

the sensation of falling as you just hit sleep by [personal profile] greywash: Still a WIP, but the writer updates like crazy. 50K words so far and I can't stop reading. Seriously. I get email that it's been updated, and I squeak. Dark, hard-hitting, and very TRUE-feeling post-Reichenbach. There are no kittens and hugs here, folks. Just lots of revenge and anger and human mistakes. It's rated NC-17, and the author IS NOT KIDDING about that.

Level 65 Paladin Looking for Group by etothepii: Yup, it's what you think it is. John and Sherlock meet while playing an MMORPG. It's insane, but it made me laugh.

Alone on the Water by Mad_Lori: Eeeeeeeeveryone has read this one, and if you haven't, you should. Someone gets a terminal illness, and all of fandom sobs. (I'm not kidding. Bring tissues.)

Five Stayed Behind by [personal profile] in_lighter_ink: One of the first Sherlock/Doctor Who crossovers that made me really happy. Five characters in the BBC Sherlock 'verse who turned down a chance to travel with the Doctor, and one who didn't.

the theory of narrative causality by anonymous: "Sherlock is a well-known fanartist whose online antics always land him on fandom_wank. John's a beloved BNF fanfiction author. They meet at a convention; geeky love ensues." It's pure meta CRACK. Seriously. I don't know that I've ever read anything more meta. But I laughed and laughed like a loon. Also NC-17 in places.


Sherlock: The Musical 2 by lotrfan2888: Season 2 in 7 minutes, with awesome musical choices.

It's Raining Men on Baker Street by lotrfan2888: I just watched this for the first time, and it is PERFECT. And full of delicious eye candy.

Sherlock in Love by Deductism: Romcom trailer which may be considered canon in parts of the known universe. Someone on Tumblr called it "Sherlock as Manic Pixie Dream Detective". They're not wrong.
