Obscurity - UrbanHymnal - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
John wrinkled his forehead and looked down at the brick. He knew what it was. Could even have told her that it was not just blue, but blue like the sky the last time they went to the park. Blue like his trainers. Blue like running down a hill and feeling the air whistle past your ears. But the words were not there. What was there instead was sensation, bright and lovely. The brick was not a brick. Such a silly thing to call it, to narrow something down into just a collection of sound. It was...well, it was earth and bark and sawdust. It was strength and balance. It was beginning and completion. It was delight. It was rough, smooth, and gnawed. And oh, what stories could be found in the gnawing. That little bit of corner placed between tiny teeth, tasting all of that along his tongue and to feel it on his gums. How could he possibly make all of that into just one simple word? Impossible.

Easier by Moonlight - Eva - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Mycroft never really trusted his memory of events during the full moon. As the brain changed its shape, so did it change its function; his memories as a wolf must be filtered through his human understanding, and vice versa. Therefore, his memories were interpretations, and not strictly true.

But there was no doubt that this interpretation was accurate: there had been another wolf. [11,730]

An Avalanche Of Detour Signs - gyzym - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
In which Molly Hooper gets a job, gets a degree, breaks a heart, has her heart broken, falls in love, keeps a secret, saves a life, runs a morgue, falls apart, pulls it together, and finds exactly what she didn't know she was looking for--not necessarily in that order. [56,053]

[Possibly the *best* Sherlock fic I have ever read. Molly is just such a fully realized character, I fell in love with her right off the bat, and her relationships with the other characters alternated between making me grin like a loon and just sob in utter misery on her behalf. Once I started reading I went right through to the end; I couldn't stop.]

Not So Potluck - bwblack - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Mummy sends out a letter detailing what she expects her guests to bring to their Christmas celebration.

|||

Sherlock Holmes:

1. Please be advised that most people eat three meals a day at regular designated meal times. It is not nearly as revolutionary as it sounds. Therefore, it is safe to assume that our guests intend to eat at the meal we are serving, and they’ve probably eaten within the past twelve hours. This means that when you are at the market purchasing green beans, you should assume that each guest would like more than three green beans but less than three hundred.

2. I would prefer the beans to be cooked in house. They get rather soggy if they are prepared in advance. Kindly take my word on this. Do not spend the rest of the week testing it. Other families planning holiday meals would be much obliged if you had not rid the nation's markets of vegetables prior to the holiday. [1150]

Come On, Charlie, Let It Fill Your Soul
After being publicly disgraced for working alongside the falsely accused Sherlock, Lestrade is ousted from the Yard and his wife leaves him for good. A year later, John runs into Lestrade and finds the man has lost complete control of his life. And has also apparently started his own little war against the concept of shoes.

[This is the most amazing photoset ever, and also I would totally read this fic.]

What Friends Do - igrab - Sherlock Holmes (2009), Sherlock Holmes & Related Fandoms [Archive of Our Own]
Thing was, he had known for a while now, and Mr. Holmes had known that he'd known, but they had a tacit agreement not to say a damn thing because they both knew Constable Clark, and if he knew that Lestrade knew, he'd likely resign from the force and take himself off to some faraway country where no one could potentially hang him for his sexual preferences (which Lestrade wouldn't, of course, but Clarkey had some funny notions about friendship) and that didn't help either of them. So he kept his mouth shut, and when he saw how Holmes's eyes lingered or how his hands would flit sometimes, as if he wanted to reach out and touch him - well, he might've looked elsewhere for a moment, and pretended he couldn't see.

Yards: We Go The Extra Mile! - flawedamythyst - Sherlock (TV), Sherlock Holmes & Related Fandoms [Archive of Our Own]
“Sherlock, you have to be polite to the customers,” said Lestrade for what had to be at least the thousandth time.

Sherlock was the best warehouse manager Lestrade had ever known. He knew precisely how much of everything was going to be sold, managing to factor in the weather, holidays and events, current fads and all kinds of other details, so that his orders were almost always just about perfect. Lestrade was the envy of the other managers for how well-organised his warehouse was, with no stacks of over-ordered stock and very few gaps on the shopfloor. Of course, the balance was Sherlock's attitude. No one envied him that.

“I was polite!” said Sherlock. “I politely suggested a trip to the opticians might be necessary, if she couldn't see the sign.” [1995]

John Watson was a Shire Hobbit, born and bred, and he was terrible at it. He'd expected to spend his life bored and more than a little alone, but then Sherlock had come. Now he was running around Middle Earth trying to stop a killer while still avoiding Mycroft's lectures, and pretending he wasn't half mad in love with an Elf. [23,868]

There are those boys with earthly eyes
Their eyes are like the ground
You walk and walk, kickin’ up dirt
But they don’t make a sound

And when they kiss you, they sometimes leave ‘em open
To make sure you don’t drown
Yeah, the sweetest eyes, the truest eyes are probably dark brown

Learn to Wear Each Other Well - sinuous_curve - Sherlock Holmes & Related Fandoms, Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Embarrassing as it is -- considering Lestrade actually is a decently intelligent and aware person despite what Sherlock insinuates at least twice a week -- he very simply does not notice someone standing in his doorway until the man clears his throat. "Detective Inspector Lestrade?" the man asks as though he already knows the answer.

"It's the name on the desk."

The man's mouth settles with a hint of a smile. It's a bit obnoxious really, the unconscious condescension he exudes; like he knows all the answers to questions Lestrade can't even begin to think of asking. "I'm here about Sherlock Holmes." [20133]

"And if I tried to take just one, I imagine I'd never recover from the blood loss?" he asks, mostly joking, but Mrs. Hudson just stares at him very seriously and says:

"It would be terrible, Mr. Lestrade. Tommy's just now starting to get his stitches out."

"Great," Lestrade says, and in another one of those moments where he reconsiders his qualifications for fatherhood, takes home to his daughter a pair of murderous, co-dependent cats.

etothepii: Show Me How to Stop Running
Before the wolf, his nightmares were about death -- his dying, his letting other people die, pain and suffering and the bodies of friends. He'd dream about mortar fire and gunshots and fear, and wake with a shout, the coppery smell of blood vivid and sharp in his mind, hair soaked with sweat. And he'd sit up, shaking, telling himself that he was still alive, that he was a doctor, that he was there to save lives.

After the wolf, he still dreams about death, but almost never about dying. He dreams about blood in his mouth, and running on four legs, and the sick, moist, ripping sound flesh makes when torn apart by fangs. He dreams about screams and pain and the spill of blood against sand.

But when John wakes from *those* dreams, he wakes up hard. [12,392]

Sherlock looks back, obviously annoyed. "John's in Edinburgh. And yes, with *her*. We're not joined at the hip, you know."

Unaccountably, Greg cheers up. "Would you like to be?"

Sherlock blushes. "Don't be absurd. John's the straightest man I know."
