Sherlock Recs


The Man Who Wasn't There by kantayra
Summary: Yesterday, upon the stair,/ I met a man who wasn’t there./ He wasn’t there again today./ I wish, I wish he’d go away... How Lestrade first met Sherlock.
Warning: Themes of drug use.
(A plausible backstory for how Lestrade met Sherlock, and co-incidentally, Mycroft and they aren't really conspiring to drive Lestrade insane, but it sometimes feels like it.)

Felt, Not Defined and If Debated, Lost by wouldbeashame
Summary: Sherlock organizes the things he has to do on a hierarchy of importance. Some things jump to the head of the line, no matter what else he has on.
Warning: Slightly graphic descriptions of the after-effects of corpse torture.
(Wherein Sherlock is an actual friend towards Molly in his own uniquely disturbing way, but tries not to let on, and Molly gets to vent. Disturbingly.)

Come and See by mariana_oconnor
Summary: John Watson is Death. He wasn't supposed to kill the cabbie at the end of A Study in Pink, Sherlock Holmes was supposed to die that night. But Sherlock's still alive and now the world is starting to fall apart.
(It's a Four Horseman AU that at the end, you may wonder if it isn't canon. Or hasn't always been canon. Brilliant, brilliant 17.5k Big Bang, and be sure to check out the associated art by togsos and venturous. It's been recced many times by other people since being posted, but I just got around to reading it and I can't not rec this fic.)


Dates of Vast Importance by mia6363
Summary: John made everything comfortable.
(PG - Kissing, Sherlock/John. Reading this fic is like slowly curling up under a warm blanket on a cold day; even the occasional occurrence of gunfire and sharks do not hinder this effect.)

Insufficient Clearance by weefreethings
Summary: Mycroft's superiors in Military Intelligence have decided to put a stop to his little side projects, such as kidnapping his brother's flat-mate and dating Inspector Lestrade.
(PG - Romance, Mycroft/Lestrade. This story involves an AU concept regarding the Holmes family that I would love to see the author expand on in more stories. It's also rather rare to see Mycroft in this much trouble with an authority figure.)

A Previous Engagement by wreathsandbells
Summary: In which there is a misunderstanding, Sherlock goes on a series of dates, and John is confused.
(PG - Kissing, assorted dating, Sherlock/John. Sometimes it takes a lot of clues before John catches on, but he gets there in the end. An interesting re-take and reference to some ACD!canon, no need for familiarity, but those who know it will spot it.)


Sherlock Timeline by wastingyourgum
(An ambitious attempt to codify and pin down the timeline of events in the Sherlock series to date into one handy reference post. There are footnotes and everything!)

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 the main Sunday Recday post at sherlockbbc.

Yay! So tempted to read them now at the library. So, so tempted.

They are all worksafe (depending of course on your workplace's opinion on men kissing each other and people torturing corpses) so I don't think any of them would shock the library. "Come and See" is a bit long for a quick view though, so save it for when you have a bit of time to settle in because it might eat your brain. :-)

So, for my birthday, today we took the dog to a dogpark for the first time and I made my mom watch A Study in Pink. She actually found it entertaining, and thought John&Sherlock were creepy. *hee*

I may be able to convince her to watch the rest of the show, too.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 28th, 2011 04:58 am (UTC) (Link)
It is a show that needs to be watched. New season is supposed to be out sometime this fall.

Also, happy birthday!!! I must beat my ninjas for not informing me!

It's actually the 29th and since there isn't one this year, it's possible nothing got sent out.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 28th, 2011 05:08 am (UTC) (Link)
Aw, that's not fair! You totally exist and your existence should be celebrated!
tigriswolf From: tigriswolf Date: February 28th, 2011 05:24 am (UTC) (Link)
Awww, thank you. What's funny is that my school didn't accept my birthday until the seventh grade. The computer just refused to believe that it existed, so all my teachers thought it was the 28th.

No, when your birthday is on the 29th, then on the non-leap years you get two birthdays. (Or at least that is how one leap year baby told me.) People give you cake on the 28th and March 1st.

We used to do something like that when I was younger.

PS Happy Birthday!
