Attention Paid, Affection Played - bendingsignpost - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Three years into their relationship, Sherlock has trouble staying on topic in the bedroom. Even so, that doesn't mean John can't manage to keep his interest. [3307]

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.

"Short of conclusive evidence that Tinker has been turned, the CIA would be roundly unhappy if anything happens to him, 007. Naturally, should you find that he is overstepping the boundaries of intergovernmental friendship, then," M made a small, dismissive gesture, "Accidents happen. Even to members of the Circus. London can be a dangerous city for the unsuspecting." - In which Q is a young upstart CIA agent, possibly in London for the wrong reasons, at the wrong time, and definitely in the wrong place.

“I’ve a reason for asking, you see.”

John grits his teeth. God help him, if his cab driver is about to confess to impulses to self-harm, John will leap out of this car.

But the cabbie glances over his shoulder with a smug little smirk that doesn’t fit anywhere in the conversation so far. “Don’t think I’ve ever played this game with someone who’s suicidal.” [1996]

Little Spider - TardisIsTheOnlyWayToTravel - Sherlock (TV), The Avengers (2012), Avengers (Comics) [Archive of Our Own]
The thing is, Harry is too young to remember – she was only three when Natalie Watson ‘died’ in a horrible and dramatic car crash, in which her body was burned beyond recognition – but growing up, John basically thought everyone’s life was like his. That other people secretly spoke Russian as a second language, that other people’s mothers showed them behind closed doors how to take out someone’s knees in one blow, and talked to strangers in long coats and hats sitting on benches in the park, and that like him, no one else was allowed to talk about it (especially not to Daddy), either.

By the time that he was old enough to learn how to kill a man with his bare hands, though, John had worked out that his mother was different from other mothers, and that most people did not, in fact, learn to do all the things he did, or take notes to Andrei who always sat on the bench where John would feed the ducks.

One of the first things John did was to write up step-by-step instructions on how to conduct a proper job interview before handing it over to Mycroft for his perusal. There were no kidnapping, deserted car parks or stolen therapy notes anywhere on that list.

(Or the one where John returned from the war and ended up working for Mycroft as his personal assistant slash doctor on retainer. Everything was fine, until he was sent to post bail for one Sherlock Holmes.) [9828]

Sherlock looks offended. “I’m not stealing them, John. We have a barter system.”

John raises an eyebrow. “You realize that a barter system requires both parties to be aware, and making use, of it?”

Sherlock frowns. “Of course. When I wore your tee-shirt after you returned my socks, I assumed your silence was acceptance. You said my use of your jumper was fine, and afterwards you returned one of my tee-shirts, freshly laundered.” He gestures to the stripy jumper. “You are, of course, welcome to anything in my wardrobe, save my coat.”

jupiter_ash: Man and Beast
It was with a sick feeling that he watched them push a figure into his room. It was the day of the full moon and they had given him a playmate, bound and blindfolded, shoved into his cage with no ceremony and no apology.

He barely raised his head from where he was sat in the far corner, knees pressed to his chin.

The man struggled, cursing slightly as he slowly worked the bonds off before ripping off the blindfold.

“Bloody things,” he said before straightening his back and looking around. His lips pressed together as he took in the cell, eyes alighting on the cameras and microphones before settling on him.

The wolf growled but he clamped his mouth shut.

“No expense spared I see,” the man said. “Could have given us a bigger room if they expect us to share.”

He doubted that would be an issue for too long.

“Been here long?”

He didn’t reply but watched the man, tipping his head slightly to the side, his eyes narrowing.

“Afghanistan or Iraq?” he asked, his voice still a little hoarse from the workout the day before. [~20,000]

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]

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. [1894]

After Holmes returns there are recriminations. And then changes, subtle and insidious. There might be a plot afoot. If only Holmes were more of a detective. [11,213] [post-Game of Shadows; the one where John and Mary decide that they need to seduce Sherlock, but they go about it too subtly and he doesn't notice.]

The Important Bit, a sherlock fanfic by rayndrop - FanFiction.Net
A few minutes later, John opens his mouth to say something.

"After a certain point," cuts in Sherlock without looking up from his book, "I should think that the distinction between 'to love' and to 'be in love' becomes rather more academic than practical, don't you think?"

||||

A lovely story about straight John and asexual Sherlock being married and growing old together.

||||

AN: That's right. Platonically married asexual Sherlock and straight John. Because the really important part is that they're soulmates whether or not they fancy each other. Because they defy category. Because if anyone is going to tell society that it and its constrictive, insufficient definitions of friendship, romance, and marriage can go hang, it's going to be Sherlock Freaking Holmes. [11,289]

I Know Thee, Stranger - lotherington - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
‘Looks like I better move in with you after all. Fuck knows if you can still make toast without losing a finger or something.’

Archangel AU, Wing!Fic. Sherlock is Michael, the archangel of fire and war. Mycroft is Uriel, the archangel of repentance. ‘Gabriel’ Lestrade is the messenger archangel. John is Raphael, the healer and protector.

It’s 2010. Sherlock is bored. Mycroft is exasperated. Gabriel’s tired. Raphael’s missing.

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]

sunryder: Come To Morning
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]

But The Cat Came Back - twelve_pastels - X-Men: First Class (2011), Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
In retrospect, Erik possibly should have been suspicious. All of the mannerisms were the same, the coloring was almost exactly correct, and whiskey in the milk? A dead giveaway.

Although, to his credit, the last thing a man thinks of during the week after he’s broken up with the person who he’s certain is the love of his life is, upon seeing a bedraggled, frantic cat crouching on his stoop on a rainy night, “Oh, look! It’s Charles, and he’s been transformed into a cat by a malevolent government program! I wonder how I can change him back and thereby secure his love forever and ever, amen?” [3848]

mad maudlin: A City on the Head of a Pin
It was harder to ignore the second time, when consciousness was there to stay. The doctor explaining his injuries to him was very clever and very patient, and optimistic about a full recovery; he felt rather bad that he couldn't pay attention. "Dr. Watson?" she asked eventually. "Are you all right?"

"Fine," John said, staring at her wings.

sherlockbbc_fic: prompting: part iii -- Untitled, by mad_maudlin
Anderson was attempting to reach around Lestrade and shake his finger at Sherlock, or perhaps poke him in the eye. John sighed, and hunted up a pair of latex gloves.

He didn't have much experience with revolvers, of course, but he found it easy enough to load; he swung the barrel back into position, and pressed the buttons that brought up a paper target at the end of the range, as far back as it would go. There was a squeak of shoe leather on tile somewhere behind him, and a yelp, which he ignored. Instead he settled himself into a comfortable stance, the revolver in his left hand, the right hand held above to fan the hammer.

Six quick shots boomed through the firing range, and in the aftermath the only sound was John carefully putting the Peacemaker back into the bag.

story_monger: Unexpected Journeys
John never volunteered the information that his flatmate was a dragon. If he did, he suspected he’d receive questions such as whether Sherlock had ever taken off his concealment charm or whether John was ever so slightly worried that he was living with a natural carnivore, whose species was not above picking off the occasional human or orc.

John would have told them not to worry about the second item, because Sherlock apparently lived off of tea and nicotine patches. [~6500]

Sherlock and the Cat - Meggo - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
"What're you doing out there?" John asks, a bit stupidly.

There's a cat sitting next to Sherlock, both of them looking out onto the alley below. As one, they turn to look over their shoulders at John, two sets of eyes blinking languidly. "Watching," Sherlock replies. The cat washes its paw.

There's no room for John on the fire escape, so he settles for leaning his arms on the sash and peering out into the gloom. "Watching what?" he asks after a minute of fruitless observation.

"Birds." Sherlock's tone implies that this should have been obvious. Which it is, John supposes, for the cat. Less so for Sherlock. And indeed, John now sees the half-dozen pigeons perched on the wires above the alley. [3141]

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

parsnips: Wherein There Is a Case, Several Mysteries, John Coming to the Rescue, and an Old Folk Saying
There is a mold of uncertain origin in the sink, and Sherlock refuses to tell him the purpose of it.

Sherlock *says* it's a mold, anyway. The sink in the loo has had unsettling streaks of blueish-black in it from very nearly the beginning of their residence. Mrs. Hudson has complained. John has complained. Sherlock has attempted on several occasions to call it an experiment, but when pressed won't specify exactly what the experiment is in honor of.

It's more than a little disgusting, and it has a very odd smell.

The one time John tried to clean it out, he ruined a perfectly good sponge, and the mold just returned a few weeks later regardless.

lavvyan: Some of Your Time
Somewhere between the Tesco Metro and Baker Street, John has lost an entire hour.

This is, of course, a minor disaster. John has always been good at managing his time, and it's not as if there had been many ways to spend it when he'd been deployed, but after months of sitting around doing nothing much, his budget has grown distressingly tight. Between shopping for two, the higher rent he's paying to Mrs. Hudson, and the taxi fares Sherlock keeps leaving him with, John is fast-approaching broke. He simply can't afford to lose an hour; he can't. [~3100]
