    Gaaaah, so brilliant. The slow repair of Sherlock and John's relationship after Sherlock returns. I just love the slow sensuality of the pace, and the way it alternates between the thrum of tensions they're still working out and a companionable enjoyment of taking their time and savouring it. I also enjoy how John's PTSD laces through the story, not a feature or plot point, but just an element of his life.

    A blocked path, a stray spell, and a hobbit with the most peculiar sort of luck.

    Bilbo knew, leaving the Shire, that hobbits certainly weren't the tallest of folk in the big, wide world. But this is ridiculous.

    In which Sherlock acts like a twat and "I take it back" isn't enough to take it back. In which John loves him but can't hold a relationship together single-handed and isn't inclined to try. In which Sherlock has to be accountable too if he wants this to work, and they have a real relationship, and then almost don't, and John thinks he would prefer to sleep on it before he decides.

    John is a ghost, haunting the flat Sherlock moves into. They work around the difficulty and become friends. Fun, rather fuzzy story, with a touch of melancholy (understandably), and etothepii's usual magnificent writing.

    Kink-meme deanon - where Sherlock can't keep himself from having a little taste in the middle of things. Just a little lesson in authorial bravery.

    Sherlock has definitely decided more tasting is in order, his brain is on fire with it, the need to map every inch of John’s body prickling over his scalp. He pulls out gently and tips John up by the simple expedient of hooking his hands under John’s knees.

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes has long been fascinated with (and haunted by) the tragic story of his namesake cousin. When his nightmares about it grow unbearable and he starts seeing hypnotherapist Jim Moriarty, however, Sherlock begins to wonder whether he himself is his cousin's reincarnation. Have Sherlock and the modern John Watson known each other before this life? Can Sherlock solve a nineteenth-century murder and prove the historic Dr. Watson innocent, and also solve the current string of oddly-posed unidentified corpses?

    Excellent and unusual reincarnation story/casefic. Sherlock drives me batty in this one--as the story headed into the climax, I found him to be a childish, selfish, willfully blinded asshole whose obsession everyone else had to pay for--but other than wanting to slap him stupid and scream at him by the end, it was really a fantastic, wonderfully-plotted, excellently-characterized story. Also there is copious Mycroft being cool and brotherly in his own inimitable way, and the whole story is saturated with awesome BAMF!Sally.

    This is one of those wonderful stories where the waters are deep and murky and you can't ever quite see all the way through what the characters are thinking and feeling. Powerful and nebulous and sensuous and intimately, lovingly violent.

    John can see ghosts. Sherlock died before John ever met him. John helps him settle his unfinished business.

    This story is magnificent in every way--intriguing, exciting, haunting, beautifully written, with brilliant characterization for John, Sherlock, Mycroft and everyone else--but the epilogue is a twist of the knife. So. Just be braced for that.

    This fic features brutal, explicit torture, graphic murder, a Sherlock who spends most of his time being a selfish, hateful sonuvabitch, and, um, Moran. AND YET the emotion in it all is so heartstring-tugging and real, the emotional trials resonate so powerfully, and Lestrade, Sally, Mycroft, and Molly are all such colossal BAMFs that I love it enough to bookmark it anyway.

    The Holmes and Watson of the Ritchie movies, as they are at home when no one is looking--damaged and not caring, keeping each other company as they flirt with their personal death wishes. Beautiful and broken, and it seems terribly optimistic of this Watson to believe that he'll live to a ripe old age any more than he expects Holmes to.
