    Summary

    The year is 1974. When John Watson, doctor-in-training, wanders into a seedy bar, he has no idea there's a band about to play, much less that his life is going to change completely. When Sherlock Holmes hits the stage and reads John like a book during his performance, John knows he's found something amazing. But Sherlock's history with a brilliant madman could threaten not only the way he and John see each other, but their lives, their sanity, and the safety of everyone in London.

    Summary

    1976. Bone Fiddle-verse; Appalachian AU. A couple years into their relationship, John and Sherlock are cozily setting up for spring with Mrs. Hudson's expert guidance when a distraught young woman appeals to them for help and sends them on one of their strangest cases yet - in order to solve one murder and prevent another, they must tangle with a sinister preacher and enter the much-sensationalized, little-understood world of Pentecostal Holiness believers who strictly observe Mark 16: 17-18.

     

    (And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.)

    Summary

    After five good years, one difficult one, and six months that were hell, John and Sherlock live apart but still share custody of seven-year-old Rosie. With therapy, supportive friends, and those inevitable dance recitals and open school days forcing them into each other's paths again and again, anger and bitterness fade, leaving space for a new view of each other across the divide.

    Summary

    Sherlock sighed. He knew he has been completely obvious, that John’s friends have since a few weeks – since the infamous incident of the Drink Spilled Over John’s Shirt – cottoned on Sherlock’s crush, smirking at him as soon as he set foot in the Honeybee before nudging John, winking at him and whispering in his ear how Sherlock was still looking at him.
    Again.

     

     In which Sherlock is watching (and pining), John desperately tries to remain in the closet and Mycroft is meddling.

    Tumblr prompt: Sherlock loses his voice and has to communicate through texts which leads to love confessions.
    ______________________

    “Yep. Simple case of Laryngitis,” John pronounces, placing his hands on his hips. His voice the calm and confident tone of an experienced physician. “Drink plenty of fluids. You’ll also need to rest your voice. That means no talking, Sherlock.” Sherlock starts to protest, but John holds up a hand.

    Summary

    "Every unbound omega must be registered for bonding by the time they reach 21 years. You are 32 years old Sherlock. You have come to the attention of the Project Committee. I have been informed that you have 3 days to present yourself, or you WILL be found in contempt. You could lose your right of first refusal altogether. Is that what you want? Whatever alpha they set in front of you, without even the token option to say no?”

    Sherlock never wanted an alpha. He has made it this long without; he has no interest in changing that. Unfortunately things do change and he has 3 days to find an alpha of his own before the choice is made for him. There must be an alpha out there who is capable of letting Sherlock be Sherlock. Right?

    John needs a pack. Aching and miserable after being sent home from the war due to his injuries, he has no one waiting for him. It's not healthy for an alpha to be alone, but what can he do? He wants a true partnership, not the shallow forced bond the Committee offers.

    Circumstances throw these two men together, but can they ever be Bondmates in anything more than name?

    Summary

    The rarest of all gender types as an omega boy, Sherlock is used to spending all of his time around other omegas - all of whom are girls. His world is turned upside down in the best way when new neighbours move in next door, and he meets a boy called John Watson.
    But although their friendship is accepted when they are children, things cannot stay the same as they start to grow up.
    And Sherlock finds out his rare status means that his future may have already been decided for him... no matter who he really wants to be with.

    Rating will change as the fic goes on.

    Summary

    Paralysing nerves tugged at Sherlock, hooking the words from beneath the tender shrine in his sternum and forcing them to fall out, crumble, in an explosive barrage of unexpected, uncontrolled, unfathomable, pain-stricken proclamations that he, undoubtedly, could never turn back from.

    -

    A healing, yet disdainfully painful, path to their proper ending.
