AUUUUUUUUUGHHHHHHHHH I THOUGHT I WAS BETTER

Good thing I am in my room because I a. screamed a little, b. sobbed a little, and c. rocked back and forth, and I don't need my roommates asking why these things are happening.

Aside from my visceral reaction, this vid is TREMENDOUS. The pacing, the way that NOT ONLY the visuals work with the music, but the pace of the cuts, AND the dialogue--GUYS THIS VID MANAGES TO USE DIALOGUE EFFECTIVELY IT IS AMAZING--and it also has an arc. Easily one of the best vids I've ever watched.

metisket: beautiful ideas
So it cracks me up that the entire plot is pretty much Mike Stamford’s fault, and yet he manages to completely dodge the fallout. SIR, I SALUTE YOU.

Equally, it cracks me up that ACD Mike Stamford spent a lot of time making it clear to John that this, this living with Sherlock thing? WAS NOT HIS IDEA. Whereas modern Mike Stamford seems to find it all hilarious.

In conclusion: Mike Stamford fic, because I admire the man’s style.

This is hilarious and delightful, and absolutely an ode to Mike Stamford's style.

Obvious; Or, Greg Lestrade Is Good At Detecting And Has Five Pounds To One That Sherlock And John Will Shag - the_arc5 - Sherlock (BBC) - Fandom [Archive of Our Own]
Lestrade isn't the reasoning machine Sherlock is, but that doesn't mean he's blind. And it's obvious to him, if nobody else, that a certain dynamic duo could use a nudge in the right direction.

It says something about me that now, after all the Homestuck fic, this feels like sap. Someone comes back from the dead; people are bad at love; but it's sweet! (Homestuck!

Parallel - Chapter 1 - brbsoulnomming - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
There's a case at a secondary school/University, some series of threats or string of bizarre murders that has the entire campus shaken. In the course of the investigation, Sherlock and John meet two students. One is well liked if not popular, athletic, intelligent without showing off, involved only because they were close to a victim or witnessed something important. The other is a loner with no regard for social norms, an insufferable genius, always in the chem lab, and involved because everyone, including teachers/professors, think they're behind everything. ...And the two of them meet, help Sherlock and John, and well, love abounds. <br />
<br />
So, my favorite part of this fic came quite early, when I realized the author was making the parallel couple both girls, and my stomach swooped a little. Yay! Developed female characters! Femmeslash! Always loved! In addition, it's fun and plotty, although the S/J somehow didn't feel as developed. Maybe because they carry the idiot ball, some.

If there was a form in a person's life where they had to check off a ticky box next to their sexuality, John Watson would have started out by marking down 'straight', then scribbled that out and checked off 'gay' instead, then torn up the form and stared at a new one for a long while before marking off 'bisexual'. And stared at it some more.<br />
<br />
Sherlock Holmes would have taken one look at the form and set the thing on fire.<br />

The Vast Perhaps - moony - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
It’s not fair, he thinks. A world where budgies can die for no reason isn’t a very nice world, and suddenly John wishes it were him in the box instead of Tom Baker. Because he doesn’t think he wants to live in a world that’s so unfair.<br />
<br />
That's the line that got me hooked. The ending is surprisingly sappy for the subject, but so much of it is wonderful, and I really enjoy the author's treatment of their relationship. Highly recommended.

gyzym: Sherlock Fic: Like Leaves & Kings (All Things Must Fall) [John/Sherlock, PG-13]
Sherlock is the worst roommate in the world. John suffers him less gladly than he could, but better than most. [I recognize that this is basically a summary of the canon. Sue me. Summaries are hard.]<br />
<br />
He really, really is. I've read Sherlock is a bad roommate stories before--but here he really, really is, oh my god, what a bad roommate; John: you so crazee.

"Wednesday, this is my flatmate, Sherlock Holmes. He's a detective. Sherlock, this is my niece, Wednesday Addams." "Consulting detective," Sherlock corrects sharply. "There's an arachnid in your coat pocket, did you know?"<br />
<br />
Sequel to etothepii's previous Sherlock/Addams crossover; just as brill.

Can't Solve People - Elster - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
John is irrational, Sherlock is confused and Lestrade finds himself giving advise to a madman.<br />
<br />
Very, very nice outside-POV on Sherlock--and while the focus is on him, it develops Lestrade's character in small, subtle ways. I love it more the more I think about its subtlety.

In the pocket of his trousers, next to his phone, Mycroft carries the standard-issue steel capsule meant for protecting arthropod daemons. When people ask about it, he smiles and tells them she's not fond of the light, or of people other than himself. This is a lie.<br />

Let's stay up all night... - Sherlock fanfic: "For The Weekend."
‘Patterns, Doctor Watson. Daughter, sister, doctor, soldier – and then suddenly a colleague, and an increasingly domestic one at that, to the world’s only consulting detective. It creates beautiful colours, wouldn’t you say?’ (Gender and sex-swap; John into Joan Watson)

holmestice: Art/Fic for Lelek: Disaster, Want and Tea: A Christmas Carol & A Mistletoe Kiss
Look at the characterization in this shit:

"I was vaguely aware," says Sherlock, slowly. John isn't predictable at all, and he rather adores that. That had been the reason for the decorations after all, hadn't it? To read John's reaction. Like texting, tea, and technology, John has become essential in a way. Life is the more pleasant for his existence. Sherlock could do without the lot of them, but he'd really rather not. The realisation is accompanied by mounting horror.

--
By mid-week, the panic has subsided and he is bored again.

|| WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT, that's right. Also the ending is brilliantly characterized.

etothepii: You Call Me Like the Moon, PG-13, John
"Twenty," John says -- hostile to humans, but not a danger unless provoked. Firmly gray. When most people find out, John usually gets a long silence as they clearly think, But he's so unassuming.

Sherlock, by contract, simply makes a 'hmm' sound and says, "Of course. For the military, of course. What were you before?"

Twenty-eight, dark enough that he'd attack strangers on sight. He'd had to lock himself into his room at night to keep from hurting people, or spend the full moon at a holding facility with only other wolves for company. He had scars from the latter option, but they'd all been fun scars, earned fairly in fights.

"Sixteen," John says.

Available Evidence - lamardeuse - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
John is the one mystery Sherlock can't solve. | Another Sherlock-deducing-John fic, combined with slight jealousy. I say slight, because Sherlock contemplating throwing things when John's been gone for 45 minutes is mild jealousy for this fandom. Highly enjoyable all the way through, and the twist at the end adds. Nice.

wordstrings - A Thousand Threads of What-Might-Have-Beens I
When John does finally leave, Sherlock is the last one to be surprised by it. But so much leading up to the event was Good by their eccentric standards, even Immeasurably Good, that the timing does seem wrong. Well, mildly wrong. As wrong as any trivial detail can feel when one's bones have been removed, for example, or one's blood drained out of one's veins.

|| UNNNNNNNNNGHHHHHHHHHH. The author warns for "disturbingly possessive" and well, yes, that would be a line for me if this was anything else but Sherlock and John. As is, Sherlock is so beautiful and so shattering, and John is so good and it has so many feelings and oh, oh, oh.

laurajv | Sherlock, and how he doesn't have Asperger's, even if Cumberbatch said he did.
THISTHISTHISTHIS.

Not to say I haven't read some beautifully well-written, sensitive portrayals of Aspergers in Sherlock in fandom--they just usually skirt that he READS PEOPLE FOR A LIVING. Guys. Guys. The man doesn't isn't on the autism spectrum. It is NOT to say that people on the autism spectrum can't figure people out, or get better at it, but just because he's antisocial and terribly terribly bright doesn't make him autistic. He certainly would not have such a finely tuned understanding of human motivation and what signs to read as a natural gift if he was on the autism spectrum. It's an interesting parallel--and to be honest, Doyle may have been thinking of people he knew on the spectrum when he wrote him--but he doesn't fit the actual disorder. Phew.
