    Summary

    The year is 1816, and a recently widowed Mrs. Hudson has a handsome but infuriating young ward named Sherlock Holmes. In an effort to make a bit more money, she agrees to take in Captain John Watson, recently injured in the Napoleonic wars. Much to her surprise, Watson is much younger and more spry than anyone expected. Can Mrs. Hudson (and Sherlock's brother, Lord Mycroft) temper the scandal of two unwed men living under one roof?

    Summary

    These differences between British and American terminology and culture below are all ones I have seen in Sherlock fic or that are likely to come up in Sherlock fic. It is not exhaustive and I know that I will think of or spot at least 10 more as soon as I post this, but it is a start. If you have read fic set in America written by a Brit you will know that these things jar and spoil the flow quite a lot, so here you go.

    Summary

    Sherlock/Skyfall crossover. Wing shape and colour shouldn't mean anything, not in this enlightened age, but it does. Q had been quite happily passing as a blackbird until Sherlock threw himself off a building and didn't bother to fly.

    Summary

    In a world where Omegas are the property of the elite Alphas, locked away and treasured by those wealthy enough to buy them, John never questioned his flatmate's secondary gender. Sherlock Holmes was an Alpha through-and through.

    Wasn't he?

    A chance discovery turns the world on its head, and John is left grappling to come to terms with Sherlock's past as events conspire to threaten their future.

    Summary

    John wanted a lot of things for and from Sherlock, but he was content to wait until Sherlock wanted the same for and from him. At least, he was, until a criminal and his blade forced John’s hand. And his fangs.

    Summary

    John Watson thought this was it for him after he returned from Afghanistan -- runny noses and the tedium of working a job at a private practice. Aimless and bitter, he never thought he would find his purpose again. Enter Sherlock, a little boy desperately needing rescue from the wreckage of his life, and John gets more than he ever thought possible...a family.

    He was such a serious child, but he was incredibly smart. He saw things most people would find inconsequential and pieced them together to form a whole picture as easy as breathing. John didn’t know anyone that could do anything like that. All the more reason why it was a crime what had been done to him. How could anyone hurt a child as helpless and as innocent as he? 

    Never again...

    Summary

    Prompt: "Mycroft has a sulky little brat named Sherlock, Lestrade has a BAMF little soldier named John. Their kids are fast friends, so Mycroft and Lestrade end up becoming friends too...and then things start getting serious." Slight deviation from prompt in that this details the kids becoming friends, and doesn’t get much into “serious.”
