Sherlock Fic Recs

Personal list of fic recommendations for BBC's Sherlock. Most are Sherlock/John but some Mystrade and others make its way in there (listed at the bottom after all the johnlock).

*those marked with asterisks are must-reads in my book


The Whore of Babylon was a Perfectly Nice Girl by out_there
Rating: Explicit
Summary: (author's) Sherlock walks into a room and takes all the space right out of it. He does the same inside John's head.

The Great Sex Olympics of 221B by XistentialAngst
Rating: Explicit
Summary: (author's) 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.
1) Fucking god the sex, 2) and tender moments within sex, 3) my heart.

A Cure for Boredom* by emmagrant01
Rating: Explicit
Summary: (author's) They'd never talked about sex in the year they'd known each other. Well, that wasn't quite correct: Sherlock had never said a word about sex; John had bemoaned his personal dearth of it on many occasions.
By now a classic in the Sherlock fandom--a very sexy fic! The premise: Sherlock uses John for sexual adventures until they both get in a little too deep than they'd like. Includes scenes at sex clubs and John with lovely written OCs and Johnlocked in the end.

Two Coffees One Black with Sugar Please Series* by Linpatootie
Rating: Explicit
Summary: (author's) A somewhat pointless experiment on Sherlock's behalf leads to John having to re-evaluate pretty much his entire life.
Basically Sherlock performs an experiment of him and John platonically (!) sleeping together and whether it helps their sleeping patterns. John's developing feelings. This fic leaves my heart aching--so wonderful.

Mystrade (Mycroft/Lestrade)

Least of All Possible Mistakes* by rageprufrock
Rating: Mature
Summary: (author's) If ever a people deserved tasering, it’s Holmeses.
Female!Lestrade, George, meets Mycroft Holmes. One of the best written pieces on female!Lestrade--rageprufrock gives Lestrade a life of her own here, and it's all enjoyable.
WIP--not complete yet but definitely should be in your bookmarks.


Put a Smile in Your Name by kingaofthewoods
Rating: Teen
Summary: (author's) Molly Hooper adores the name on her life line even before she can read it. It’s written in a beautiful cursive, loops and curves flowing freely into what she sees as a work of art. She’s immensely proud to carry it on her skin, and she shows it with a smile to all of her friends in kindergarten.
“My-croft?” one of the girls struggles to decipher it. “What kind of a name is that?”
Hands down best Mycroft/Molly fic (not that there are that many), periphery Johnlock pairing. Lovely writing of Molly's character and really does justice to the characters and the pairing. Love this because it is a magical realism fic wherein supposedly a person is born with their soulmate's name on their hand/wrist.
