    Summary

    There's a wolf amongst the sheep at Wisteria Lutheran Church. Sherlock and John must go undercover—as two men in love—to find out who has been mercilessly executing the church's queer community. As with everything else involving John Watson, it's not nearly as straightforward as Sherlock had hoped it would be.

    It feels true and real and absolute, and all Sherlock can do is swallow down everything that’s rising up within him and remain still and quiet, and close his stupid bloody eyes—and try to enjoy it while it lasts.

    Summary

    Breaks with canon from the lab scene in Hound of the Baskerville.

    His action of tearing the sheet back startled John badly, causing him to try and jump to his feet to run away. He cracked the top of his head against the bars so hard the cage actually shifted a little. Sherlock instinctively winced in sympathy at the loud clang as John clamped his hands to his head… but he still never made a sound apart from his shallow but rapid breathing.

    After the events in Baskerville, the first thing that Sherlock notices is that John doesn't argue with him anymore. Unfortunately, that isn't the only change in his behaviour. Sherlock doesn't know why or how best to help... he just knows that for the first time in his life, he wants to be there for someone else.

    Summary

    "Of all the peculiarities of Sherlock Holmes, one wouldn’t have thought that the acquiring of things would be one of them."
    AU. Sherlock is a dragon, a fact he's kept hidden from John, even if he hasn't managed to keep his need to hoard items completely from him. He hasn't claimed him, however.
    When John is kidnapped at the end of The Great Game, he is in for a slew of other surprises than learning Moriarty's identity, and Sherlock must rush to his rescue before Moriarty decides to add John to his hoard. Permanently.

    Summary

    Sherlock is gifted a car by Lestrade and his team. Using it as an opportunity to bring himself closer to John and to make his complicated feelings a lot more known, he tries his best at garnering affection - much to John's frustration.

    Or 5 times Sherlock and John fool around with a car and 1 time they settle things like men. Like very, "Who? Me? I'm certainly not in love with the other" frustrating men.
    A 5+1 fic-ish.

    Summary

    A light little AU ficlet about John and Sherlock's first meeting at uni when John gets drunk and pounds on the wrong door thinking it is his room. It turns out to be Sherlock's.

    --------------------------

    “You’re bloody gorgeous. I’ve died and gone to heaven.” John blinks serenely up at the figure.

    “You’re wasted,” the figure growls. “You should know I can kill you most creatively and dispose of your body in a thousand inventive ways so that you will never be found. I assure you that I will never get caught. So unless you want me to extinguish your pathetic, little existence this very moment you better tell me who the hell you are and what the hell you are doing in my room.”

    “Yes, that… That… That is amazing. Keep talking, Love.” John grins and stares up into those green-blue eyes, dazed. He presses his lips together in an effort to look patient and blinks slowly, staring expectantly at the lips that spilled all those elegant words with such precise diction and in an amazing rumbly voice. “Come on, then, I could listen to you for hours.” John offers a smile. “Tell me again how you’re going to kill me, I like that bit.”

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes and Obi-Wan Kenobi are both very smart men that did a very stupid thing, backed by very smart people acting very stupidly. Anakin Skywalker throws a fit and kriffs up the universe, and John Watson is definitely not paid enough for this shit.

    Please enjoys this mess that has no plan, and no update schedule (not that I normally have much of one anyway).

    Summary

    “Sherlock...”

    Sherlock looks up on his name, his hands wrapped tightly around each other, and he blinks at John expectantly.

    “Yes?” he says, and John takes a deep breath, letting the air leave his body in a sort of pained whistle. There’s a pit in his stomach that he knows isn’t just there from knowing what is about to happen. It’s years of waiting and watching and hoping and always, always being let down, and now for some reason John decides that he needs to tell him.

    He deserves to know.

    Summary

    Rebekkah hadn't come to London to get involved in local crime solving but of course her curiosity and penchant for finding trouble wouldn't allow her to pass up on the very enticing opportunity to do just that. Meeting a certain consulting detective hadn't been in her plans either, but perhaps it wouldn't be too bad to keep him close. After all, they had an enemy in common

    Summary

    What an inane scavenger hunt. He has no doubt that even if he made the call, John would remain prisoner until Sherlock has danced through every step of this asinine choreography - and for what? To languish in the knowledge that the best man he knows will be nearby but never close, familiar but never intimate, for the rest of his days (which are surely numbered when John finds a woman to contend with Sherlock’s madcap pantomime of a life)?

    Summary

    AU. Sherlock and John both go to secondary school, Sherlock to a boarding school and John to a nearby comprehensive. Sherlock is roped in, much against his will, to be part of a new initiative of a student talent 'showcase', meant to combine music and English literature, where each act must be made up of people from both schools.
    When he finds out the one he's been partnered with is the boy who works weekends at the local village's newsagent's and lets him buy his cigarettes despite knowing his age, the one he's harboured a crush on almost since he first saw him, he suddenly becomes rather keen to practice.
    But John's a popular guy, it seems, and busy, too, with for instance the times he has to leave without explanation. Why would he want to stick around and be friends with Sherlock after the concert is over? Best make the most of it in the time he has.

    Summary

    ~~John awoke to an itchy wetness. He questioned what happened in his sleep addled state, before being shocked to complete wakefullness by his conclusion. He was menstruating.

    Mostly based off BBC. Inspiration was also drawn from the life of James Barry. The fact that Barry lived about 100 years before ACD's canon makes me want to include some of that too.

    John Watson, of the fifth Northumberland Fusiliers, is exactly who he says he is. But he is also who his Uncle said he was. After donning the name of his late uncle, John Watson escaped his abusive father's household by joining the military. He'd had to stop taking testosterone upon joining the military, nobody dependant on medication could legally join. He used bullet tampons like the women in WW1 when he menstruated in deployment. It was a relief to be able to take HRT again.
    After moving in with a madman who told John's life story upon meeting, but curiously not his gender, John takes his testosterone at his doctor's. T injections are impossible to hide. When John menstruates (unexpectedly) for the first time since returning to HRT, how does he react?

    Summary

    Sherlock’s jump from St. Bart's left John crushed. Just when he’d begun to come to terms with his feelings for his flat mate, the man dies right before his eyes. But his suffering hasn’t gone unnoticed and now two years after the fact, a certain Detective Inspector has decided to help pieces of John’s life and hopefully the two of them can navigate this new phase of their lives together. The only problem? Sherlock isn’t actually dead and after years of hunting down Moriarty's men one by one, Mycroft has called him back to London to make sure he doesn’t lose what he was fighting for.

    Post season two and ignoring the rest (since the bulk of this was written before the other seasons had come out...but let’s call it a fix it fic.)
