    Summary

    When Hermione Jean Granger was one year old her parents died in a car crash. She knew all about it because she asked a lot of questions and her aunt and uncle believed in answering them.

    Why is the sky blue, auntie? Why are b's and d's like in the mirror? Where do songs come from? Why did Jenny Hopkins call me a--?

    Her father had accelerated into a green light, like you were supposed to. (By the time she was eight, Hermione had the driver's rulebook memorized). A truck driver, going the opposite way, hadn't stopped at a red.

    Hermione had been strapped in a car seat in the back, her aunt and uncle told her. She hadn't been hurt at all except for the scar that stood out, jagged, on her forehead.

    As Hermione grew up into a gangly, bushy-haired, buck-toothed wonder, she thought she could remember it-- a glaring green light, a rush of cold air.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The entire HP series re-written with Hermione as the Chosen One. Harry was raised by his father and Remus (Lily died in the war), and is still Hermione's friend. Many things go the same way as in the books, but many things are different. Knowing what a horcrux is and how they're made, Hermione figures out for herself that she is the last horcrux. (Snape was put in Azkaban after the first war and never left it, so he's not present at all.)

    Summary

    No one has ever stayed with Sherlock longer than a month. At least, no human. Fortunately, John Watson isn't about to let the little things - like biohazardous experiments and the constant threat of danger - get in the way of his friendship with a very special, very brilliant man like Sherlock Holmes.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Dr. John Watson died in Afghanistan. The demon who comes to inhabit his body finds humans and the physical world fascinating, and then he meets Sherlock Holmes and discovers just how fascinating humans can be, even better than chocolate.

    Although John is actually a demon, he's not evil, and it might be more accurate to say that he's an angel. The story is sweet without being saccharine and full of interesting world building and interesting character insights. Far more serious and lovely than the premise would make it appear (though the follow-up stories in this 'verse are silly and nothing like the original story).

    Summary

    “You know John, I could hypnotize you if you really want." What followed was an arrangement that John never thought he would be lucky enough to find, and never insane enough to accept.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A surprisingly plausible Johnlock story, in which Sherlock discovers that John has a hypnosis kink, and he adores the idea of being given John's mind to play with.

    Summary

    An account of the glorious mess they're in: Sherlock and John are tied in something bloody and filthy and worth spending two and a half thousand words contemplating, honest.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There are a lot of things I don't like about what the TV series Sherlock has done to the character of Sherlock Holmes. But I do love what it's done to John Watson. This story is part of why.
