    I thought...I thought I had read everything of the wonderful pennydreadful's but maybe I managed to skip this one originally because of the rating. That would be in-character for me. But god, this fic came out of nowhere in 2017 to punch me in the gut with TGG feels? What the Actual Fuck.

    Speculative fic about the end of that s1 cliffhanger, and it's...really dark. God, it's impossible to discuss this without spoiling, but don't read if death is triggering.

    Summary

    John Watson thinks Sherlock Holmes should admit that he, Watson, is more of an expert on sex than Sherlock is. But Sherlock refuses to concede the point. He comes up with an experiment plan that will resolve the issue. The results will determine who wins the prize. But sometimes even the best thought-out scientific study has unexpected consequences.

    Correcting a terrible neglect: I'm only bookmarking this beauty in the year of our lord 2017. Hell, I only managed to kudos this fic in 2017 and I've reread it a *lot*. An enormous failure on my end. I first read this back when I joined the fandom in 2013, and my god, it holds up. I've come to the conclusion that it'd be an absolutely amazing starter kit fic for someone just picking up Sherlock/Johnlock fic in general. It's a classic in the fandom generally and in "it's for science!" trope specifically, but there's so much here that's foundational to my love of this fandom back in the s2 hiatus when so many of us joined and fell in love with these two. John being incredibly good and competent and in control, Sherlock secretly flailing inside and cold on the outside; the two of them laughing and being competitive. It's just beautifully done, with a wonderful emotional throughline for an insecure demisexual Sherlock, and great sexytimes to boot.

    Summary

    Sherlock presses his nose into my hair and inhales. “Told myself the whole way here we wasn’t gonna get into this again,” he says low. His breath moves soft against my scalp, and his words rumble deep into my bones. It sounds like the open sky throwing wind against the boulders up on Baker, rattling the thin walls of the tent with the rushing force of the mountain.

    I hum. I don’t believe him for a second – steppin’ out of his gleaming white Ford back in Signal with his best shirt on and his curls all combed lookin’ up at me like he just took a breath after five years of holding it.

    I know because I did the same.

    I can't even get out the words. I'll edit this again when I can. A Brokeback Mountain crossover that absolutely ended me and revived me and cleansed me. Heartbreaking and breathtaking and fucking beautiful.

    Summary

    Everybody likes John Watson. He's down-to-earth and unassuming, and standing next to Sherlock, well... It's no wonder everyone assumes Sherlock's the horrific flatmate.

    It's as irritating as any false assumption. Sherlock may be difficult at times, but John is hardly the flat-sharing ideal.

    Ah, s1 fic, when everything was........simple? Is that the word? What a wonderful little window of time to revisit though, years and multiple seasons later.

    Summary

    Baker Street is very much the same. Only different.

    And Sherlock is just trying not to drown.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    What the FUCK, this is amazing. Wraps up so many loose ends from series 4 (AND ALSO FROM BEFORE SERIES 4) that I honestly just want to cry. A tremendous work, with lines that cut deep every chapter and a painfully beautiful Sherlock POV. I think it will not fail to be anything but healing for those looking for a fix-it for s4. I also think this was the first such cathartic longfic post-s4 that I've read, and I'm truly thankful that this fandom produces incredible fic the way that southern California produces sunshine. Which isn't to say that I don't think fic is the product of hard work, polishing, and a boatload of effort, but oh my god. The reader in me just cries with the undeserved wealth.
