Sherlock recs


GEN FIC

A Jimminey-Christmas Carol by hooxeii
Reccer's Summary: Moriarty is visited by three spirits. It doesn't go well.
(What's Christmas without unrepentant evil? And crack-fic!)

Friends in Embarrassing Places by catslyn
Summary: Set after The Blind Banker. John goes to court to face the music… and the ASBO. Lestrade and company get involved despite John’s best efforts to keep things quiet.
(You want to know what happened with John's ASBO? This is what happened with John's ASBO.)

Frightening; or, Five Times John and Mycroft Had Tea by Dreamwidth user SarahT
Summary: Negotiating a difficult relationship, with biscuits.
(A trip through the aftermaths of the episodes and some of the greatest hits of classical canon with tea and biscuits and Mycroft.)

The Crossway by catslyn
Summary: One-shot. Post The Great Game. John is dead, Sherlock is falling apart and Mycroft will do anything to fix it all. Crossover with Supernatural, so be warned!
(It's a Supernatural crossover so I am primary-fandom-inclined to rec it. Fortunately it also kicks ass.)


'SQUINT' FIC*

Facts Over Feelings and Something Like Shagging by amedia
Summary: People with concussions forget things.
(Medically necessary snuggle-like activities, concussion-induced amnesia and the subsequent fluffy angst arising therefrom.)

And the marshmellows wept, for they saw they knew neither fluff nor sugar by jbs_teeth
The glory cannot be summarized.
(No, actually it's on a comment fic meme with no summary given and I can't think of how to summarize it without a spoiler. This is the most fantastic concept and execution for a light and schmoopy Holiday fic for this era of Sherlock I've seen yet.)

Secret Santa by thinkpink20
Summary: The Met play their own game of secret santa.
(Because Sherlock so would. The squint is in a Sherlock/Lestrade direction.)

*Squint = If you look at it one way, it's plain Gen, if you squint, you might see slash or pre-slash.


PRE-SLASH FIC

Burn The Heart Out of You by starjenni
Summary: Sherlock has not backed off. Moriarty follows through on his threat. How much of Sherlock must he destroy before Sherlock lets him go?
Warnings: Contains story spoiler, highlight to read. Death, Major Character Death, mass public terrorist-activity-related death, destruction of iconic locations, oh and death. Did I mention the death? Well, there's death.
(It's now complete! starjenni's epic post 1.03 tag is now complete, so there's no danger of getting to the end of a chapter and gnawing off your appendages before the next one comes and stomps all over your heart again some more. I put this in pre-slash because my mind was so blown by this story I couldn't recall if anyone had sex in it or not. o.O)

Hugging You Is Like... by treez_r_green
Summary: Five times Sherlock hugged John from behind, and one time John hugged Sherlock.
(PG-rated hugging and mushy schmoopy fuzziness)


SLASH FIC

The Troubles of Marriage Counselling by starjenni
Summary: Sherlock and John go to marriage counselling. Hilarity and angst happen in equal measures.
(T-for-Teen-rated. Cute and funny as hell, with a big dose of schmoop.)

Lay Me Down by moony and irisbleufic
Summary: The only courage greater than the kind it takes to wax confessional in written correspondence is the courage it takes to follow through with action. (A direct follow-up to the epistolary The Shape I Found You In)
Warnings: Allusions to suicide without stating it outright.
(Very NC-17. Also very romantic. These two writers' styles blend seamlessly, and the setting and background characters are richly detailed. The entire 17K fic is achingly beautiful and sensuous. Be sure to read the preceding fic before reading this one.)


HET FIC

The Breeze Deep on the Inside by seren_ccd
Summary: When Molly and DI Lestrade share a drink at a pub, a part of her wonders why he’s talking to her. The rest of her doesn’t care.
(R-rated. Molly/Lestrade. I know! Sweet, slow, romantic and wholly believable.)


ART

Seismic Waves by staticlights
(Post 1.03 Art, implied character death, quietly heartbreaking.)

Hey, I just dropped by because I love rec day (even a day late), and I always check out the links. So I just happened across your rec of my Christmas fic, and I was so flattered. What a nice thing to accidentally find! Thank you.

Ack! I'm sorry I didn't let you know I was reccing it. I meant to ask, do you have it reposted anywhere off-meme you'd rather the link go to?
jbs_teeth From: jbs_teeth Date: December 14th, 2010 12:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
Nope. If I actually ever finish one of the three or four other Sherlock stories I started, I may dust off my LJ blog and repost, but I'm not holding my breath at the moment.

Thank you, again.

Oh, gosh! I was checking out your recs and I saw that you recc'd my little Molly/Lestrade fic. Thank you so much! I'm extremely flattered. *blushes and twirls around*
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: December 15th, 2010 06:13 am (UTC) (Link)
It's a super rare pairing and you made it so believable, I couldn't not rec it. :-)

hello - agreeing with you entirely that the marriage counselling fic is lovely but it's by starjenni not me!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: December 19th, 2010 12:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Crap. It's always something. Thanks for the heads up, that's been fixed now.
fengirl88 From: fengirl88 Date: December 19th, 2010 01:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
you're welcome!

and oops - the *sulks* icon is my default one, because I love that scene so much, but not a good one to use for that message. sorry!
