Recs: Sherlock Recs



omnia mutantur by definewisdom
Summary: Chance (and not so chance) meetings between the Sherlock characters and the Endless.
(It's been ages since I read anything to do with Sandman, and I found this fascinating.)

Sonata by coryphaeusrex
Summary: Sherlock and Mycroft are both musical, but they never play together any more.
(Music and the Holmes boys, and John's perspective on them. Funny and touching.)

12 Days until a Funeral by trillsabells
Summary: Sherlock has to pick up the pieces when John suffers a personal tragedy
(This might be quite triggery for some. Read the notes before proceeding. An in-depth journey through the grieving process. It's heart-breaking and heart-warming and so very very sad. There are two preceeding stories to this one, but this can be read as a standalone.)

Obviously by beneficia
Summary: Sherlock isn’t psychopathic. He is not a high functioning sociopath. He doesn’t fall anywhere on the autistic spectrum and he is not anti-social. He’s just like every other member of his species. Or, well, former species now, thanks to Mycroft.
(Absolute crack that makes absolute sense, for certain values of absolute.)


Five Times John Caught Sherlock Cuddling And One Time He Participated by zannabq
Summary: See title
(There needs to be more cuddling around here. Gen, squint and otherwise.)

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


Skewed Data by entangled_now
Summary: It's not intentional, not the first time.
(Author's Rating: R - This fic is one of those stories that breaks the classifications. Check that. entangled_now is one of those writers that breaks classification systems in the best way possible.)


The Perils of Urban Warfare by phantomjam
Summary: The problems of acclimatising to civilian life a.k.a the travails of John, his therapist and Sherlock.
(Author's Rating: PG-13 - I don't know how I missed this one 'til now, but I'm reccing it in case anyone else is living under the same rock as me. It's first-time John/Sherlock, among many many other greater things.)

If you've seen something amazing that you think more people in the Sherlock fandom should have the chance to enjoy, please rec it at this week's Sunday Recday post at sherlockbbc. You can rec on this post if you really want, but many more people will find them if you rec at the comm. Share the awesome!

The Sherlock fandom is insanely productive, what can I say? XD

Thank you as always for these! :D

*runs off to the Sunday Reccing post to see if anyone else has mentioned Rate of Change*

Got it, thanks!

(Also, the Obviously story is a fascinating parallel to this one which I ADORED.)

Hee! Sherlock really is a cat.

Re your eta: OMG I know! I saw how many pages of comments it had and I was all "Where the hell have I been???" O.o

There is so much really awesome and literary fanfic being produced by this fandom, it's astounding. And daunting as hell as a writer.
dendritejungle From: dendritejungle Date: September 13th, 2010 03:36 am (UTC) (Link)
Heck, it's astounding and daunting as a READER - I can only imagine how much so it must be for a writer!

FWIW, though, I think you totally hold your own. I'm not just saying that as a friend - y'know, albeit in that weird never-actually-met-you-internet-y sort of way - either. (I have some friends, bless 'em, who are awesome and funny but I quietly avoid their fic because I can't bring myself to lie or make a pathetic comment like, "I...uh...like your correct use of semicolons! *thumbs up*") Much as I love your funny stories, it's been really neat to watch Sherlock bring out a more...thoughtful? poetic? flavour to your writing which easily equals anything else I've read in this fandom. (And given the quality of writing in the fandom, that's saying something!)

*facepalm* I really am some sort of weirdo one-woman cheerleading squad of yours, aren't I? Sorry. :P I promise I do get effusive over other writers too!

AHAHA I just apologized for over-complimenting you, didn't I? Because I don't want to make you feel uncomfortably over-praised, and am not comfortable giving lots of praise - HOW CANADIAN IS THAT?!?! LOLING 4EVAR

Thank you! I can barely skim my flist most days. This real life business takes up SO MUCH time. I am so happy and grateful to have your rec posts popping up and providing me with Sherlock.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 13th, 2010 03:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Happy to provide! This real life business, eh? Where does it get off taking up so much time?

You always rec the best fic. Love all of it, esp Sonata and we deffo need more cuddling;)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 13th, 2010 05:48 am (UTC) (Link)
Cuddling is very necessary. *nods*

Thank you so much for The Perils of Urban Warfare rec. Oh my gosh, that was fantastic and somehow I hadn't seen it. Really brilliant.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 13th, 2010 09:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have no idea how it slipped past my radar, it seems like half the planet has read it from the comments.

There'll be another recs post going up on Sunday too, not sure if I'll be doing them every week or not after that, I'll have to see how the time management goes with the SPN reaction posts.
