    Summary

    What am I doing? he wondered. The answer came back at once: 
    Flirting.

    He sank deeper into the pillows, let the mist and blur of the wine settle around him, let it shore up his nerves and dim the warning signals that flashed dully in the back of his mind. He let the rest of the disappointment about Lucy and his strange accommodations and about the weekend as a whole fade into obscurity. He let the vital, missing piece snap into place as surely and as cleanly as if it had always been there.

    He was flirting with Sherlock Holmes.

    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.

    Summary

    When Greg Lestrade met Mycroft Holmes for the first time he wasn't quite sure what to make of him. But nine years down the line, he could never have dreamed that this was where they were going to end up.

    AKA: A slow-burn Mystrade, starting in 2005 and covering all three seasons of Sherlock.

    As of 19/04/2016, I am going through this fic and reformatting it, so if you find some inconsistencies in formatting, that's why. I'm also trying to remove the typos and the unnecessary words and clunky phrases. It's a long story and it'll be a long process, so your patience is very much appreciated.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Epic Chaos!Fic from Lestrade’s POV of their entire acquaintance—from 5 yrs pre-pilot to end of S3. (no sh/j, follows series canon)

    Always amazing what a POV shift can do to a story.

    [Notes at end re: possible sequels—ETA: dear gods, sequel is Mycroft POV and even longer!]

    Summary

    When Sherlock learns what John "Three Continents" Watson's army nickname is for, he realizes he's got the perfect opportunity for a first-hand experiment in physical passion from the one person he can actually stand to be touched by. John thinks there might be a bit more to it than that.

    (Part of my "John and Sherlock's Kinky First Times" series of shorts, all revolving around the same basic theme of "John and Sherlock get sexy for the first time and also discover some kinky stuff about each other.")

    Summary

    “Mr Holmes, I'm not in the habit of approaching . . . consultants. But you are correct. I have great faith in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. And until recently, I also had faith in the rule of law. Only the second one has wavered. Three years ago my fiancé, Sgt. Neil Howie of the West Highlands Constabulary, went to investigate an anonymous report of a missing child in a remote place called Summerisle. He never communicated with me while he was there, and he never returned.”

    Summerisle is not a welcoming place to visitors, but it shows its best face at May Day. For ulterior motives.

    Now featuring The Straw Man Fallacy Fanmix!

    Two hours of mood-setting folk, folk-rock, and metal arranged to loosely follow and build on the original soundtrack of The Wicker Man. (Also includes much incidental music straight from the film.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    If you know anything of medieval manuscript illuminations, you know that Sath did not actually have to invent any of these things: Monasteries of the past delivered these images pre-cracked-out for our convenience. (I’m still not sure which Fanfic Rule # that technically falls under...)

    Sath just manages to bring the crack to life, and leave me rolling on the floor gasping for air! :-)))

    Summary

    “I’m sorry, Sherlock, but I think what you just said is that you’ve been catfishing a murderer online, pretending to be a couple, your brother and I, and now you want us to meet him? A murderer? As a couple!” The last few words are really quite loud, and Rosie makes a startled squeak in the kitchen.

    Sherlock glares at him.

    Greg takes a deep breath. “Sorry,” he says, automatically, then – “No – no! Not – not sorry, because – of all the things, Sherlock, that you have ever done, this is undeniably the most – the most utterly – I –”

    He closes his eyes, fists clenched, and takes several deep breaths.

    “Overlooking many, many other problems with this entire scenario –” he pauses and takes another breath, “– what on Earth makes you think that, as a couple, a detective and a – a – whatever he is –” he gestures wildly at Mycroft – “would put themselves online on a dating site?”
