I suspect this is going to be a stressful week for Sherlock fans ... knowing what might/must be coming Sunday night ... so I thought I'd rec this little happy ending AU now that it's finally a completed work. I've probably mentioned it before, but we got the last chapter over the holidays and I realized I had forgotten to mention that...

So ... what if Sherlock and John were actors who met and fell in love while they were filming a movie about two men meeting and falling in love? What if it were sent in current day Hollywood. Not an RPF, but full of real people none-the-less. :)

If any of that is peaking your interest ... then have at it. It's DELIGHTFUL.

Sherlock Holmes is an Oscar winner in the midst of a career slump. John Watson is an Everyman actor trapped in the rom-com ghetto. When they are cast as a gay couple in a new independent drama, will they surprise each other? Will their on-screen romance make its way into the real world?

(crap. now I want to re-read it :) can I just get a job where I can read fic all day long??? pretty pretty please? LOL)

OMG, I wrote something!!

Aiming for short fics, little pieces as I try and find my way back from that 7500 word fic that nearly killed me.

Anyway ... here's a little word doodle, a post-ep for A Study in Pink. I have more "John and Sherlock giggle a lot" fics in my head. This is the first piece of them.


"Do you know what this fortune cookie tells me?" John asks after one too many beers with his Chinese takeaway.

"Yes," Sherlock intones from his spot on the couch.

John just giggles. And continues, "This fortune cookie tells me that you, Sherlock Holmes, are a fraud."

Sherlock makes a noise that John thinks he might eventually learn to translate, but it's late, he's recently shot a man, and he's a little bit drunk.

"You said you could predict the fortune cookies," John says, as if that's his point. He thinks maybe that was his point. At some point. And then he realizes he is laughing. At nothing, seemingly. Which just makes him laugh harder.

"Christ," he thinks, shaking with laughter, shaking for reasons he's not thinking about, tucked up in a cushy chair in front of a fire, feet propped on a side chair upon which rests a Union Jack pillow. Queen and Country. Bravery and Stupidity. Christ.

"There's a little "hmmm?" noise from across the room, which pulls him out of his thoughts. Sherlock turns, his hair tangling in the bobbles of the damask pillow he's got mashed into the sofa corner behind his head. There is a tiny little smile on his face, just one corner of his mouth quirked up, and a glint in his eye.

"Well, come on you mad bastard," John prods, "Go ahead, prove me wrong."

"Simple," Sherlock said, languidly.

"I'm waiting," John said.

"My dear Doctor Watson. Surely you know this already. The fortunes are never accurate ... and frequently ungrammatical. Therefore I can always predict... that they will always be wrong."

John makes his own sound then, a scoffing noise that, oddly makes Sherlock smile.

Sherlock is on his feet now, pausing to dig something out of his coat pocket, and as he heads towards his bedroom, he drops a set of keys in John's lap.

"The proof John, is in the pudding," he says as he makes his way through the kitchen and goes into his bedroom, closing the door behind him.

And John finds himself giggling once again as he looks around the room. The fire dances shadows across the boxes, and the keys in his hand grow warm under his touch.

This is a place where things happen, where they will happen to me, he thinks.

Christ, what has he gotten himself into?

But he holds the keys out in the palm of his hand. And his hand is steady.

And he can't stop smiling.

Sherlock fic continues to eat my brain. Nothing new there. But all along I've been off-handedly looking for some fic where Sarah was a decently rendered character and not just the girl to get out of the way pronto in order to get the boys in bed together.

Well I came across a fic the other day where John and Sarah decide its time to include Sherlock in their relationship, and it's got great Sarah moments, great John moments, great Sherlock moments, and and every permutation of them all combined ... and its hot as hell. Also. Naval puns. Quebec will never not be funny now...

So if you need some John/Sarah/Sherlock in your weekend, give this a try :)

Things changed at 221B Baker Street the first time John came home and found Sherlock lying on the couch, syringe held lightly in his fingers. For one thing, Sherlock was smiling.

“Sherlock. What...?”

“Ah, John.”

John moved on instinct, perching on the edge of the coffee table, checking Sherlock’s pulse, his pupils, then plucking the sodding needle out of his infuriating flatmate’s hand.

“It’s... all … fine,” Sherlock murmured softly, his deep voice languid, slow in a way John had never seen Sherlock be before. John found Sherlock’s now empty hand winding itself around his calf, gripping it in a way John could only define as possessive, although he wasn’t sure Sherlock was even aware of what his hand was doing.

“I’m never going to live those words down, am I?” John asked, shaking his head and smiling down at this odd still quiet creature in front of him.

Sherlock made a humming noise that was equal parts agreement and amusement as his eyes slid closed.

“Do you suppose you could solve a mystery for me sometime Sherlock?”

Sherlock opened his eyes, and looked at John. His hand was still wrapped softly around John’s leg, and his thumb was tracing patterns across John’s corduroy trousers.

“The biggest mystery of them all is why you do the things you do.”

And John couldn’t help joining in when Sherlock began to laugh.

Author’s note: This little thing sprung up from a bunny I was given on Twitter one night. I think it may have evolved from the original prompt. But here it finally is. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the music Sherlock is playing is Shostakovich’s Concerto Number 1 in A minor for Violin, Opus 99.

Wherein I give you recs to stuff I read and found interesting.

I still don't know that I buy Sherlock/John as a sexual relationship, but I am happy to read fics and see what works for me and what doesn't. Heck, I read a LOT of Goren/Eames over in the LOCI fandom and I never once bought that as an actual 'hey let's have sex and fix each other' relationship. But it was fun!

So here's a few different takes on how Sherlock and John might have ended up in bed together.

Title: What Makes Us Rich
Author: [ profile] flawedamythyst
Rating: explicit
Length: 3128 words
Pairing(s)/Character(s): Sherlock/John
Summary: In which an asexual Sherlock tries to figure out what John sees in sex. Sherlock likes experiments, but the results are not always clearly defined. Fascinating look at the compromises and compensations of a complex relationship.

Sherlock beamed at him and stood up, crossing the room to him in a couple of fast strides. Suddenly, the prospects for entertainment this afternoon were looking up. He pulled John to his feet and kissed him, dragging him close and taking the time to feel both the texture of his jumper, rough against his fingers, and his hair, which was even softer than he'd hypothesised.

It didn't take much time after that for them to get upstairs, twined together on John's bed (“I wasn't kidding about needing a Hazmat suit to touch yours, Sherlock.”) and swiftly losing items of clothing. Sherlock poured over John's body, testing the different textures of it: the smoothness of the untanned skin on his sides, the thin texture of the hair on his chest, the uneven scarring on his shoulder. It was fascinating to see it all spread out for him, exactly as he'd thought it would be, all of his history on display for Sherlock to read at his leisure.

Title: Beethoven's Two Romances
Author: [ profile] pixieblues
Rating: PG
Length: 2870 words
Pairing(s)/Character(s): Sherlock/John
Summary: In which John gets seduced in ways he never thought he would be ... or even thought he wanted.

Sherlock does stop playing this time, only to level an affronted glare at John. “And you say I have no knowledge of the ‘real world’. This is one of the most famous pieces of music in history, and the foundation of most of the songs ever written.”

John shrugs carelessly. “Music’s never been my forte.”

Sherlock rolls his eyes. They couldn’t be more different people, John thinks as Sherlock lifts his arms again, and he turns back to the headline of today’s newspaper.

“I shall just have to educate you then, John,” Sherlock murmurs, more to himself than to his companion, and the recognisable tune of Canon in D strikes up once more.

Title: Timeline
Author: [ profile] entangled_now
Rating: explicit
Length: 1310 words
Pairing(s)/Character(s): Sherlock/John
Summary: Sherlock needs John. John is endlessly useful in all kinds of ways. Also a bonus fic for those of you with a fondness for people writing on their bed partners.

John's tempted to protest again, because Sherlock gets far too many things his own way.

Until Sherlock says his name, in that heavy, familiar way that John's completely incapable of saying no to. Moreso since he ended up in Sherlock's bed, which he's not sure if he should worry about or not.
