Mostly, John just wants Sherlock to leave off the prostitutes.


Premise: Sherlock is a sexual being, but not a romantic one. More or less. So he pays for sex. John...finds this troubling.

Full disclosure: John is ALSO troubling. (Which of course, I LOVE; someone who sticks around Sherlock can only be also troubling.) Warnings for consent issues, and age-gap.

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.

here is the part where everyone was happy all the time - fic: The Case of the Interloper
Arthur finds his nemesis in Sherlock Holmes.

Um, yes plz. Sherlock's dreaming--and its effect on Arthur--is exquisite. Some great insights into characterization.

rachelindeed - Sherlock BBC/Harry Potter AU: The Almost Empty House
Sherlock shrugged. “It’s a serious mistake to twist facts to fit theories instead of theories to fit facts. I am a fact. I have no intention of twisting to fit anyone’s cookie-cutter system.” He settled back into his seat. “I’m going to be my own House.”

|| More than anything, this fic is brilliant for reworking the House system to fit Sherlock--and exposing something very, very wrong with it--along with its characterization of Mycroft. Glee.

he man arrives in the midst of foul weather. Mrs. Hudson shows him up. "Mr. (elocution lessons) Holmes?" he asks, standing (good posture) in the doorway. Sherlock ostentatiously lifts his eyes from his Blackberry, but does not otherwise move. The man (blue eyes) is wearing expensive (Fendi; SW1X; Peter Jones, David Mellor, Royal Court; fashion design; hairdressers; advertising?) glasses and (cuffs altered at least twice) a second-hand (not advertising, then) designer suit.

|| WAH. BRILLIANT BRILLIANT BRILLIANT. Thank god. A piece of extraordinary characterization is exactly what I needed to pull me back from the brink. To some extent, about John and Sherlock, but, really, about Sherlock's mental processes.
