Sherlock Recs
Bit of a scramble compiling and coding these, so if I have anything wrong or miscategorized, please let me know.


Tea and Chicken Sandwiches by hoc_voluerunt
Summary: "When Sherlock had warned him, way back in January, that he sometimes didn't talk for days on end, John hadn't taken him at all seriously." Sherlock falls into a black mood, and John learns to wait it out with an arsenal of tea and sandwiches.
(A wonderful bit of passive caretaking.)

Sit Tight by musicalluna
Summary: So far John had managed to nick himself only twice, but it was getting harder and harder to sit still with every passing moment.
(Pure John whumpage, with bonus fascinating trap.)

The Ship-full of Friesland By gayalondiel
Summary: Sherlock asks John to assist with identifying a few patients.
(The note I had on this in my rec post staging area was: "Sherlock vs cows." I stand by that note.)

He Lies Slain by gayalondiel
Warnings: Character Death
Summary: Sherlock wakes in hospital to find John at his bedside, but bad news is coming.
(May require tissues. Mention is made in comments of a sequel, but I'm not sure if that's been posted yet.)

You Make It Real by gayalondiel
Warnings: Discussion of cancer.
Summary: Something is wrong; John won’t tell Sherlock what.
(A very real feeling of preliminary grieving and denial in this.)

Deducing What Matters by donutsweeper
 It might be Sherlock's most important case to date: the whereabouts of John Watson.


'His World' and 'Strangers' by selinabln
(Two drabbles of great and wondrous awwwwwness. The second contains an ACD reference.)

TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life by bengalensis
Prompt: Sherlock has had a spell put on him. He can only speak in TVTropes phrases.
(This is one of the funniest stories I've read in this fandom to date and the post has NO COMMENTS. None except the one I'm about to leave. This is a tragedy of epic proportions. Go, read, comment.)

Evening Falls So Hard by morganstuart
Description: From a bridge, John takes in the view of life after Sherlock.
Warnings (Highlight to Read): Musing/discussion about suicide
(Oooooof. And ow. References to a 'Final Problem' scenario. Oh John.)

*Squint = Could be read as Slash or Gen.


It Starts by daisychains123
Summary: He’s standing on the doorstep to their old flat, a million things running through his head about what he wants to say and do and all he can think is; will this make John happy?
(PG. The perfect fic written in response to the art "Three Years" by mariejms, which I also recommend, and which can be found here. The story matches the feeling of the art perfectly.)

What Does The World Get by wreathsandbells
Summary: A women's magazine quiz leads Sherlock to investigate the nature of love.
(PG. Attempting to define love in a geeky-analytical manner.)

The Sorrows of Young Sherlock by lotherington
Prompt: Sherlock's sorrow is a compact but unexpectedly heavy ball that John keeps in his shirt pocket.
(Very interesting and lightly meta magical realism piece. Eloquently written.)


Tales from the Teacup by yourebrilliant
Summary: Lestrade has a new case for Sherlock and his tiny partner
(Slash, PG, Established relationship. A long case-fic set in a crack AU world where John Watson is small enough to fit in a teacup. Utterly adorable. Based on sadynax's drawing/comic here.)


A Different Light by starrylizard
Music: My guiding Light by Evermore
Summary: John's POV. John is invalided home from Afghanistan with a psychosomatic limp, an intermittent tremor in his hand and a feeling that he doesn't quite fit. Then he meets Sherlock and learns to see the world in a different light.
(A wonderful summary of John's character transition in "A Study in Pink")


Three years by mariejms
(Reccing again so it doesn't get missed in the associated fic rec.)

My Cup Of Tea by sadynax
(And again, reccing again so it doesn't get missed in the associated fic rec.)

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 Sunday Recdaypost atsherlockbbc, because it'll get seen by way more people there!

They were absolutely poignant.

I really appreciate these rec posts! I would miss so much without them! :)

There is so much talent in this fandom and the posts fly past so fast, it needs more people reccing so people can find things they might have missed.

Hmm missed a couple of these--and I will certainly comment on the TV Tropes fic when I get home.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 27th, 2011 01:33 am (UTC) (Link)
The TV Tropes one is a complete hoot. I was shocked no one had commented on it!
ungalad From: ungalad Date: August 26th, 2011 11:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
OMG the TV Tropes fic is really, really awesome! I read it on the meme, I didn't know it was posted elsewhere. Thank you! :) And thanks for the rest of the recs, you always share something I feel like reading, no matter what mood I am going through. :)
