The "You stupid tit, your Kate Bush impersonation is making you a target for every sniper at that top secret military installation you infiltrated and annoyed yesterday" rock on which Sherlock stood certainly looked like a proper Dartmoor Tor.

Aftermath by sheffiesharpe
Lestrade arrives at the pool after the explosion and finds someone else is already there.

This is part one of an epic, fantastic Lestrade/Mycroft story.

The Habits of a Lifetime by out_there
The idea of Sherlock and Eurus connecting over music, over anything, is terrifying. Mycroft has spent decades watching over Sherlock, talking about their fictional family dog and the myth of the east wind, trying to protect Sherlock from the things he doesn’t remember. He’s worried about Sherlock and stood guard over Eurus, and been worse than useless in the end. He was complicit. While he thought he was juggling both threats, maintaining enough control over the situation to keep everyone safe (mostly Sherlock, but the rest of the world as well), he had allowed the threat to escalate.

In which Mycroft is not an easy man to know and an even harder one to look after. Fortunately, Lestrade is diligent and determined, and knows how to pay attention to people. Where family comes with obligations, but it also cares, even when you don't want them around. Where life mostly goes as expected, but sometimes has unanticipated joys.

Laurie Penny on Sherlock: The Adventure of the Overzealous Fanbase
And that’s where the problem is. Moffat and Gatiss may write with one eye on their fanbase, but their ideal fanbase still looks a lot like them, which is what people of their demographic usually mean when they talk about writing for a “mainstream audience”. They write the sort of stories that would interest smart teenage boys who grew up in the 1970s and 1960s; stories about “clever men” in which women are dispensable love objects, figures of derision, or both. The pining, put-upon character of Molly Hooper in Sherlock, one of the few characters with no easy equivalent in the original stories, is painful to watch as she mopes around after Holmes like a lovesick puppy. A lot of fanfic sets out to put that right, ensuring that Molly gets the boy, her own adventure, revenge, or all three.

The idea persists that one person’s wankfest is worthier than another. During a preview panel event at the British Film Institute some weeks ago,  writer and Times critic Caitlin Moran got Sherlock actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman to read out some steamy fanfic she had found on the internet for the amusement of the crowd*. The author of the piece was upset, accusing Moran of “humiliating me, taking my writing out of context without permission, belittling it and using it to embarrass actors who I deeply admire”. But what was read out can hardly have been sillier than the endless nudge-nudge implications about Sherlock and Watson by Moffatt’s modern-day Mrs Hudson. This series has devoted serious time, including all of last week’s episode, to the question that has fascinated fans from the start: how much, and in what way, are the doctor and the detective really involved?

Nothing Happens to Me: as requested
You started your blog a few days before I was laid off, and checking the blog and commenting on it quickly became one of the rewards I allowed myself after a long, soul-sucking day of job-hunting (would that I had had Mrs. H kidnapping me and introducing me to two extraordinary boys that drank up love like thirsty little sponges). So thank you, John, for being brave and sharing your life with us - you helped me through some rotten times.

Performance In a Leading Role by Mad_Lori
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?

A Safe Prisoner of his Fate by out_there
Instinct told him that Captain Gregory Lestrade was a man he could trust. But how could this pirate, who had just stormed his ship, be a true man of honour? Captive on the high seas, with nowhere to run, curiously Mycroft Holmes had never felt more free. If he returned to rigid society he'd become an old man's unwilling husband. If he stayed with Lestrade, the captain had made it abundantly clear he would become his more than willing lover…

The Sad Divorced Bastards Club by out_there
"Don't know if you're doing anything right now, but there's a few of us at Walker's on Craig's Court. Thought you might want to come down for a drink."

"Why would you think that?" Mycroft says disbelievingly.

"Because you qualify as a member of the sad divorced bastards club," Greg says as Anderson returns from the bar, and sets two glasses on the table. Greg knows how it feels to find yourself living alone again. How empty a flat can feel, and how hard it can be to remember who you are without that other person. He knows how loneliness can creep in. "Might as well attend a meeting."

to know the depth of loyalty and love
Shamefully, I am terrible at keeping track of fics I love. TERRIBLE. This is bad not just because I am myself a fanfiction writer, but because I am a librarian. 

So I don’t have a list, but I would like to have one. So I’ve spent many hours here on my sickbed collecting a bunch of my favourite Sherlock fics. This is not a complete list by any means. It’s the best I can do today.

it is what it is | Fem!lock and Sherlock almost passes out from how...
Fem!lock and Sherlock almost passes out from how Intense it is the first time John goes down on her? #headcanon
In general, absolutely yes.

My headcanon though?

Despite how Sherlock takes care of her body–expensive products, tailored clothes–she still dismisses its needs. That goes from missing several periods from malnutrition to neglecting her appearance when she’s in a black mood; and it includes her sex drive.

She isn’t particularly adept at masturbation. Tried it once, twice–in her youth; a while ago–and it didn’t work for her. At all. So she just stopped it, never tried it again. All the bullshit she kept hearing about women having to be one with their bodies and being in the right state of mind in order to successfully have an orgasm just made the disgust grow. Her nether regions and her breasts are a no-go. They don’t exist, as far as she is concerned, unless they serve her for some other purpose. (Like cases.)

So even though Sherlock freezes the first time John kisses her and is overwhelmed by her arousal, she doesn’t let John touch her. It’s not that she is incapable of arousal–she doesn’t know what to do with it, and she cares even less about finding out.

In time, John teaches her, though. It’s slow and hard and gritty, but eventually they manage; apparently Sherlock has some repressed internalised misogyny to deal with, too, and she never even knew. All the patience Sherlock lacks, John has in spades. John is gentle and forceful, too, if need be, but most of all she understands Sherlock. She knows her.

And when it finally works, the first time–after over half a year–she leaves Sherlock shaken, gasping, clawing at the bedsheets in utter abandon.

She can only breathe, “John,” shakily, and like all those months before, John is right there by her side, holding and kissing her throughout it.

What I’m saying is that johnlock shipping became a big thing.  It became such a big thing that the press picked up on it, and creators and the show’s leads were having erotic fan art shoved in their faces on every talk show appearance for awhile post S3, and were even asked to read mildly erotic fanfic aloud during S3 promotional events (which was even less fun for fandom creators than it was for anyone involved in the show, let me tell you; there is a special place in hell for people who break the 4th wall by forcing fan-created content on show creators, uncredited and without the fan artist’s permission).  There were aslo people associated with the show who also had very personal issues with this, and chose to engage in very public run-ins with fans on Twitter surrounding the topic (Amanda, for instance, who started conflating johnlock and freebatch for reasons wholly her own).  Further more, when Benedict was doing his TIG Oscar run, a big part of the press strategy to paint him as a family man and serious actor, was to throw his Sherlock fandom under the bus as a bunch of horny, teenage girls, or ridiculous middle-aged women who were out of control, and deserved censure.

So when I say that Mofftiss may have chosen to tone johnlock way down, and no-homo almost all of Season 4 as a means of pushing back against a johnlock reading, that is what I’m talking about.  And when I talk about Gatiss having an impression of johnlock shippers being a bunch of horny, straight girls/women who simply want to objectify gay men, that’s where I think he got it from.  Yes you don’t write to fandom expectation (though it isn’t unheard of), but if you see a segment of your fandom as distasteful, and the press has glommed onto that segment, and that segment alone, and keeps shoving it in your face, and making people involved with the show uncomfortable as a result, you probably do have it in the back of your mind, at the very least, when you are planning and writing.  And I’ll add here that I am absolutely NOT throwing fandom under the bus for this.  This was almost entirely a press issue (though certain cast member’s personal issues, which played out very publicly, and stans running to cast/creators on tumblr to tattle about tumblr fandom goings on, certainly contributed to the problem)

A series of One shots and drabbles where John saves Sherlock's life in so many ways. Will be updated sporadically as and when I get any time to write. As always I like my characters hurt, so plenty of angst, H/C, whump and bromance (no slash) will ensue. Please comment if you can.
