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.

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]

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]

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]

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]

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]

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]

Shadows on the Wall - AraSigyrn - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
John has known for weeks that Molly is going to be an award-winning research scientist who wins the Nobel Prize for Advanced Microbiology. He could tell Lestrade was going to fix things up with his wife and had carefully sabotaged Sherlock's phone last Friday so Lestrade made the all-important dinner with his wife and met Raphael who is going to make them both so happy. He reminded Sally to get her pap test over casual conversation, bringing up a patient who caught the cancer just in time and he's going to let her buy him dinner after the threat of cancer is averted.

John honestly thought that he'd hit rock bottom as far as freakish psychic powers went. He's never had a body talk to him before and between medic training and Afghanistan, he's seen more than his fair share of them. Not that Joe is even a proper body, just a chopped off head stuck in fridge by a sociopathic detective to traumatise his psychic flatmate.

It's enough to drive anyone barmy. [18,160]

"No," he says, through gritted teeth. "I told you, this advice is for a friend."

"But you haven't got any friends, Sherlock."

Why do people choose to be observant only when it inconveniences him? "A. . . friend of a colleague. Of Inspector Lestrade. A friend of Inspector Lestrade."

"Well, dear, perhaps Inspector Lestrade's friend might make use of the mistletoe I hung in your doorway," she says with a too-knowing smile.

raina_at: Five Things John Watson Will Never Tell Anyone
John’s never had a death wish. He never actively tried to end his own life. He isn’t trying now, not really. But he’s tantalizingly close to finally figuring out what the fuck is wrong with him, and he can’t stop himself.

He takes the gun and with one smooth movement brings it to his temple. His hands aren’t shaking at all.

He pulls the trigger.

There’s the click of the hammer hitting an empty chamber.

His heart pounds, and his breath comes short, and he’s flooded with an intense, almost painful kind of joy to be alive, to be breathing, for every beat of his heart.

That’s the moment he realizes he’s way more screwed up than he thought he was.

He isn’t depressed. He’s *bored*.

An hour later he’s standing on Waterloo Bridge and throwing the gun and the bullets into the Thames.

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]

sherlockbbc_fic: Welcome! (Prompting: part i) -- Silly Puppy
Most people think Adonia is a dog, some sort of crossbreed, the type meant to look as close to a wolf as possible. Obviously she can't be an actual wolf. Her fur is the wrong shade, too much brown, and she's a medium size, smaller than a 'proper wolf', as seen in countless movies. Nobody would mistake her for what she actually is. It's a game she and John have been playing so long among the civilians they almost forget it's a game.

Jim Moriarty. Hi! - Sherlock is a story about a dog and a cat in love
Sherlock keeps bringing home dead things in an effort to please, but it’s never appreciated.

sherlockbbc_fic: Prompting: Part X -- Fickle and True, by anonymous
"No." Sherlock crouches before the fireplace, reaches into the flames. The star feels small in his cupped palms as he pulls it out, warm and fragile, just like it did all those years ago. "It's my heart, so I get to decide what to do with it, and I want you to keep it. I don't want it back. I'd just as soon throw it away."

wordstrings - The Death and Resurrection of the English Language
Sherlock Holmes has recently grown aware that the problem must be one of language.

He and John Watson clearly speak different versions of English. Must do. It's the only logical explanation.

[wordstrings is the most fantastic Sherlock writer EVER. Hir Sherlock is just so delightfully insane, and the way s/he writes his thought processes is simultaneously amazingly strange and supremely logical. Hir Sherlock and Watson make my heart so happy, because they're so messed up and they're *perfect* for each other!]

etothepii: they tell me their secrets (will you tell me yours too)
In Afghanistan, the supplies tell him when they're running low, and the cars always, always tell him when strangers have touched them, and John gets known as having a knack (paranoia, his men call it, but he's never missed a single car bomb) for keeping his men safe. [2320]

sherlockbbc_fic: Prompting: Part II
Prompt: John came back from Afghanistan psychic. [sequel at bottom of page]

"Sherlock's general lack of empathy or normal human emotions might be why John hardly ever gets anything off him. Little things, surface things, sure. Nothing like Sally Donovan brushing against him and John knowing she's just had a blazing row with her mother over why she doesn't *just settle down*.

That or his thing is shit-scared of Sherlock's brain."

sam_storyteller: Lab Book
Sherlock kissed like he'd read about it in a book somewhere, but a very thorough and detailed book that had diagrams and step-by-step instructions. It wasn't clinical, precisely, but there was a certain 'am I doing this right' tension that spoke of educated inexperience.

Also he was really tall. Just -- stupidly tall. He'd probably grown that way on purpose to annoy people.

sanguineheroine: Choice & Primal Impulse
Afterwards they lie together on the bearskin and Holmes traces the curves and angles of the tattoo obsessively while Watson tells him about the tiny sunburnt Englishman in an Indian town who offered to protect Watson’s outer cosmic selves in exchange for his monthly tea ration.
