    Winter is always such a wonderful writer, and Sherlock as an archaeologist is a concept that I instantly became addicted to. And John. <3 Oh, you lovely thing.

    "Sherlock cupped John's face between his trembling hands, the two of them so close together that they shared the same breath. Oxygen and carbon dioxide passed from one set of lungs to another, and he couldn't hear over the pounding of his own heart, and he said, 'I need you.' "

    Written for Challenge 1 for LetswriteSherlock: "After a nearly disastrous case, Sherlock and John share a tense taxi ride back to Baker Street. With emotions running high, they finally arrive back at 221B, and then…"

    It's hard to get your next fix as an adrenaline junkie. Maybe that's why John and Sherlock started exploring at the edges.

    BDSM and edge play. Lots of angst and some processing.

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes discovers he's the father of ten year old John Watson; the product of an experimental night with a girl he would tenuously call a friend when he'd been sixteen.

    No Intention - Sherlock has no intention of letting something like a child disrupt his life or, worse, make him talk to his parents.

    A series of Firsts - As John settled into the Holmes family old secrets and misunderstandings are awakened.

    Every Intention - Nothing ever turns out the way you hope, even when you have every intention of doing the right thing.

    Lost Intention - What would have happened had Anna gone to the Holmes family when she was pregnant

    Bookmarker's Notes

    John Watson is Sherlock Holmes's illegitimate son. Think that sounds bizarre? It turns out to really really really work! (Also it's sweet and crazy by turns, and keeliethompson does an unbelievably phenomenal job of writing a dysfunctional family in which everybody loves each other but they've spent so many years fucking it all up that they have no idea how to get anything right anymore.)

    Summary

    “Pure empathy,” says Hannibal Lecter, and it will be some time before he realises his mistake.

    “Pure empathy,” lies Will Graham, in careful agreement, and knows that it’s only a matter of time before he’s found out.

    “That must be quite a burden to bear,” says Hannibal, and Will meets his eyes, sips his tea, and knows, for once in his life, that he is not the only liar in the room.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is a terrible fic. In the sense that it's a gorgeous story about terrible things. Of course, it's a Hannibal fic, so that's par for the course. I love this interpretation for Will's abilities, though! You really could just about read the show this way, and it would make sense.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I don't even know how to explain how this is so good. It's poetry. It's not, really, in rhyme and scansion, but it's painting with words, splashes of light and color that don't tell you how the world looks but what lies underneath it. John is a man who can only speak in poem. Fortunately Sherlock is an excellent translator.
