    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.

    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.

    THE BEST DAMN TIME TRAVEL FIC. This story is so good that it led me to take my own shot at the idea (Man Who Sold the World).

    Sherlock as a siren and John as a lighthouse-keeper, and the way they negotiate their differences. The language is STUNNING, as sensual as the images it sketches.

    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.

    Once again, their lives were in parallel, reflections twisted just slightly out of true. Moran was completely certain that Moriarty was dead. John on the other hand, he couldn't even say the word. Could barely think the word unless he was mentally chanting, he's not dead, he's not dead.

    Summary

    Taken out of context, John Watson leads a terrifying life. You have to wonder what those poor women he dates thinks of it, especially if John decides to try keeping one away from Sherlock, and Sherlock decides that it'd be best if he could get rid of her. After all, Mycroft's taught him a thing or two about removing potential 'problems.'

    The Secret Identity of John Watson, by scifigrl47. Delightful, hilarious, and minimal angst! Labeled m/m pre-slash, but it reads more like gen of the 'about as slashy as the series' type. A wonderful long, low-pressure read that reminds you how to feel good about the series and characters you love!
