  1. Summary

    'With Mary, he’d done everything in the right order — if at breakneck speed: flirting, sex, seriousness, rude and awkward realism, proper caring. He and Sherlock, though, had spent so many years loving each other quietly, imagining fantasy versions of each other, in amongst the everyday of bad tempers and absent-minded scratching, that never were interrupted by mismatched desires or poor communication. Was it possible (he thought, in a slightly out-of-body way, scrawling out a prescription) they had missed the opportunity to be in love with each other?'

    Johnlock; post-series 4 (mostly); canon-divergent. Lovely story of if we take most of S4, then follow Sherlock mostly on his own, trying to sort out who he is and what he wants. Hint/spoiler: quite a bit of what he wants is cock. But also a sense of self, purpose, etc. Lots of INCREDIBLY in-character lines that went right into my head-canon and won't be shifted lightly.

    Summary

    His fingers tremble as he dials and he can’t force them steady. Familiar number, even though he hasn’t used it in two years. He isn’t even sure he should be calling it now, but she’d asked. She’d made him promise.

    Johnlock; AU (canon divergent). WOW. [** Spoiler ** involved in the premise] major character death, and Sherlock reaches for John for the first time in years. Get ready to BAWL.

    Johnlock; au: ice hockey. Enormous fic with TONS of scorching sex but also loads of relationship shifting dynamics that are incredibly well thought-out. Loving it so far: haven't stopped reading whenever I could for three days straight.

    Summary

    A month after Sherlock's fall, John is coming apart at the seams. His sister Harry puts her law practice on hold and comes out to help John through the worst. When Harry reluctantly agrees to go out to Clara's house in Norwood to make out Clara's will, she becomes the prime suspect in Clara's murder. With Lestrade now his bitter enemy, John has to solve the case on his own...or does he?

    ****

    "Empty Houses" was written during the hiatus between the end of Series 2 and the beginning of Series 3. As of "Empty Hearse," the events depicted here are no longer consistent with canon. They remain, however, consistent with your burning desire to ship John and Sherlock.

    Johnlock; Harry; canon divergent at TRF. Written just after series 2 as a way to bring The Empty House into the tv timeline as it was then. Quite a familiar romp if you know your canon (and let's face it, people in this fandom usually do), but with some very good twists and turns (especially involving the elusive Harry) that add up to a very solid TEH case-fic and head-canon.

    Rosie, it seems, is quite taken with dogs. So is Sherlock.

    Really lovely. Boys taking their time to get there, but pulled along by the little one and love of pups.
