An unsolicited Sherlock reclist for oddishly!  
No pressure to actually read these any time soon

also this is like 90% finished. but lj won't let me not post this to a comm once I chose the option and I can't do it privately here, sooooooo brb
You're Turning Me into Quite the Masochist by Snow. Mycroft/John. "Sherlock," John says, trying very hard to keep the anger out of his voice. "Did you tell your brother to ask me out?" This is only kind of okay because it's v clear John is just as weirded out/mildly upset by this pairing as we are.

When First We Practice to Deceive by anon. Lestrade thinks Mycroft is only occupying a minor position in the british government. The first and best Mycroft/Lestrade I've ever read.


Bored by loveslashangst. 811w. Sherlock is bored. John proposes a solution. Literally.

Bonheurs Enfantins, Trop Vite Oubliés Effacés by fyria_yiries. 722w. Every now and then, the British government sat down and folded paper.


Progress and Change by entangled_now. 1k. John really should learn to pay attention during conversations with Sherlock. This is perfect and funny and wildly plausible.

Stradivarius and Grace by snowlight. 1.2k. Five moments in Sherlock's life, with or without the Stradivarius that Mycroft gave him.

Headache by chocolate_limes. 1.5k. The only crisis Sherlock will call on Mycroft for is headaches.Teeters on the edge of horrifying many times only to veer into hilarity the next sentence.

Somniphobia by thisprettywren. 1.8k. Sherlock has always been a bit of an insomniac.

I Deduce in My Sleep by BrighteyedJill. 2k. John Watson is dreaming a dream that's dreadfully familiar, but he's not sure he's had a tag-along before. Crossover with Inception.

It's Not the Violin by sam_storyteller. 3.8k. Somewhere between Alejandro and the fistfight, John Watson became someone Sherlock Holmes would kill for.

Captured by Mad_Maudlin. 4.2k. In which Sherlock finds out John used to draw and won't stop bugging him about it.

Post E1 fic that involves John and his adjusting to life at 221b. Brings up characters that disappear into the aether later in the show.

Homemaking by rageprufrock. 3k? The obligatory rageprufrock rec. Gen and too domestic for canon, but includes a lot of Clara (Harry's ex), which is just great.

The Trick is to Make it Look Easy by paperclipbitch. John and Sherlock are both a bit too flippant and cheery for this to be IC, but it has some very funny lines

The Perils of Urban Warfare by phantomjam. 7.3k The problems of acclimatising to civilian life a.k.a the travails of John, his therapist and Sherlock. Podfic available.

Incredibly Indulgent:
Bells are Ringing 1.3k John turned and found Sherlock shaking his passport. "Mycroft made me French!"

That one series everyone and their mum recommended to you. long. very long. S and I know it as "tonsils!fic" because it's ridiculously indulgent. Entirely covered in your invisible name is worth reading because it involves John discovering Sherlock used to be the Brian Kinney (of Queer as Folk) of London. For research, oc.



Here Be Dragons by Winter_of_our_Discontent. 16k. From a fic prompt in the kinkmeme: Sherlock is an irritating and bored version of Merlin. John is a dubious, reincarnated Arthur who wants to pretend he's not a complete BAMF.This is amazingly written and you can really tell the author is a huge Arthurain myth nerd. This was only halfway complete when I read it (and I thought it'd been abandoned) so this is VERY EXCITING FOR ME. :D

John is Sherlock's guardian angel. 1.8k. cracky and hilarious.

High School AU. 14k. Still with the case solving. John is the new kid.

Boarding School AU. 16k.

Vampires! lol. and that's all I really have to say on the subject.

Special Delivery. 6.3k. WIP that may as well be discontinued, but with a v interesting premise (like the talking to objects one, sort of). haven't red the last chapter or two, so idk if it suddenly got crazy or something.

everything by etothepii. As you may have noticed with his HDM fusion, his writing kind of transcends the stereotypically terrible tropey AUs he writes for. it probably helps that he wrote them a few years before things like that were sort of standardized (ex: werewolf fic without any mention of a/b/o!) I particularly liked his online gaming one and whichever one wherein he talks about Anthea being faceblind (such a cool idea!).

Things you've probably read because they are amazing and the best.
The Art of Seduction by flawedamethyst. 97k, but in many parts. Queer as Folk AU! Beautifully fraught with UST.

The Internet Is not Just for Porn by cyerus. 1.9k.John is Sherlock's internet boyfriend - from CANADA. I'm pretty sure you once said something disdainful and unimpressed about this but they make fun of Windows Vista, okay? Ultimate lasagna, right there.

The Theory of Narrative Causality by falling_voices. quiteafewk. The BNF AU.
