    Summary

    These differences between British and American terminology and culture below are all ones I have seen in Sherlock fic or that are likely to come up in Sherlock fic. It is not exhaustive and I know that I will think of or spot at least 10 more as soon as I post this, but it is a start. If you have read fic set in America written by a Brit you will know that these things jar and spoil the flow quite a lot, so here you go.

    He startles awake as a slight draught of air washes over his face, accompanied by the rustle of clothing more sensed than heard, and he knows two things without even thinking; his window is open, and Sherlock is climbing through it. Again. 

    Character study with a side order of porn, or possibly the other way around. May contain traces of plot, but nothing of consequence.

    Summary

    Out of all the Alphas in the world, Sherlock has only met one that he finds tolerable—Detective Inspector Lestrade. Actually, tolerable might not be a strong enough word. It's possible that Sherlock likes Lestrade a lot more than he should, but that's not something he would admit out loud. At least, not until he's in heat.

    Perfect Sherstrade: hot, funny, and tender. These two are in a beautiful, sexy relationship, and she nails their characters perfectly. Plus, parts of this had me laughing so hard I nearly lost it.

    Taylorpotato writes Holmescest. Always a great read, no matter porn or angst or a combination of the two. This time, high!Sherlock sexts (is that even a word?) Mycroft. It's hot... and then not quite what you'd expect. In the best of ways. Highly recommended.

    “I don’t know why you persist with these obnoxious dullards,” Sherlock murmured into her neck, spidery fingers edging under her waistband.

    “He had a very nice cock,” she said, palming Sherlock’s through his trousers.

    These are four independent little PWP fics of slightly different initial settings for my OT3, starting with different kinds of pre-established relationships between two of them; all lovely, and to be enjoyed in no particular order.
    I simply couldn't choose, so I did all of them. Honestly, an important part of the appeal in an OT3 is that you don't have to choose, isn't it?

    Take dioscureantwins' sublime, sexy Holmescest fics, and add angst and the horror of a plan gone horribly wrong.

    Her writing is as stunning as usual, but the story is heart-rending and terrifying. It's a great read.

    Currently a WIP.

    Summary

    Mycroft has read Wilde – he knows about temptation and wonders whether the man had been thinking about Sherlock when he penned his famous aphorism.

    And certainly, it's not appropriate behaviour, but neither is Mycroft's when his eyes travel up the length of Sherlock's shin (cataloguing the flexing muscles beneath) to where it disappears beneath the folds at the knee – and his tongue wants to follow.

    (Series unrelated.)

    Another brilliant Holmestice Holmescest fic. Sherlock seduces Mycroft, who goes along both willingly and unwillingly.

    As an additional note, the intercrural sex is refreshing and realistic in the world of penetration-heavy fanfic.

    The mattress barely dips under Sherlock’s weight as he slips in beside Mycroft, the sharp bone of his hip ghosting past Mycroft’s flank. Once he’s settled himself, his head nudging against the pillow in search of a comfortable position, Mycroft lets the sheet drop. The heavy weight of the blankets covers them both.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    DioscureanTwins does amazing things with language, and characters, and stories. This is the Holmescest (and the writing, in general) I wish I could write.

    This particular story is told from Mycroft's POV and recounts his life from a very young age into his twenties via his relationship with Sherlock, and - along the way - his relationship with David.

    Highly recommended.
