It will also give you an excuse to shed those tears you’ve been holding back after watching that last BBC episode. Except this time, you’ll feel like they were honestly earned. Emily Watson stands up for a bullied Tristan and the kids’ friendship starts.
Sherlock visits the Watson flat to pick up Tristan, meets John and the adult romance ignites. When John’s marriage makes Molly crave a family of her own, she opts to have a baby through IVF.
As a member of the police force, Anderson is hardly under suspicion and, with the reticence of many sexual assault survivors, Sherlock refuses to name his attacker. All of which leads to Anderson doubling down on his hate for the consulting detective, taunting him and virtually stalking him as Sherlock, still suffering PTSD, tries to carry on.
Another offering from Mad Lori (known as Mad_Lori on Archive of Our Own), this recasting of the Holmes-Watson relationship as a tinsel town tale deserves mention as well. Sherlock is a faded Academy Award-winning actor trying to regain his luster.
They meet as leads on the set of a gay romance that threatens to become reality as they struggle to salvage their careers. With more than 6,000 bookmarks, 13,000+ kudos, and over half a million hits, this story is clearly one of the most popular and beloved in Sherlockfanfiction.
This one-shot fanfic is a witty exercise in cold smolder between a properly warm Watson and a practically hypothermia Holmes. When their building’s heat goes during a blizzard, John finds Sherlock working on cold cases and oblivious to his dangerously chilled state.
Mycroft sends Sherlock to Afghanistan to investigate a series of atypically gruesome deaths. A seamless melding of character and plot, this Sherlock fanfic perfectly captures the voice and tone of the BBC series.
The author actually took the time to construct an intriguing mystery that would be right at home in the episode lineup. John Watson leaned on the empty message board as he stared at Sherlock, pushpin heads digging into his tensed shoulders.
Sherlock stared at the ground, impatiently tapping his fingers against the door frame without rhythm. John took a deep breath and choked out, “I broke up with Mary…” He stopped, swallowed back a resentful memory of Mary’s parting words.
The words are casually tossed out between them; Sherlock still maintaining faith in his ability (right) to chase off John’s girlfriends. John bit his lip, feeling the tiny sprouts of hope in his chest withering away.
Anxiety stirred memories in the back of his mind, brewing together the sound of Sherlock’s scorn of sentiment and ridicule of romance with the reverent tone Sherlock uses for John’s name when deductive epiphanies arrive. John can’t decide if he wants to kiss the bastard or strangle him for being spectacularly unobservant.
“Roommate kicked me out.” John sighs and insists on taking the couch that night.) Sherlock breathed out slowly, wiggling his fingers as if trying to magic away John’s confession.
“Is that it?” John waved a hand at Sherlock, then tucked it back under his armpit. “I finally get the courage to tell my best friend that I love him.” John paused, licked his lips.
And I broke up with a woman I once wanted to marry to be with you, and you can’t say anything.” John felt sick. “I don’t know the right words.” John watched his best friend’s face turn guilty and strangely vulnerable.
“Not like this.” John straightened as best he could when leaning against a wall, lifting his chin defiantly. Sherlock leaned down and pressed a gentle kiss on John’s lips.
The list that is tacked haphazardly on the refrigerator of 221B reads, ‘Kidney(s), and/or a full cadaver (preferably male, late 30s, under six feet tall), bag of fresh toes, sixteen cow’s eyes (corneas retained), dual exhaust hand –held flame thrower, an unopened first edition copy of Joseph Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’, and no less than ten abhorrently gruesome murders in the upcoming month.” The one neatly hanging next to it simply reads, “Sex.” One of these lists is not John Watson’s. If John Watson were to put what he really wanted in list form, to live in a land somewhere beyond ‘almost’ now that Sherlock Holmes has indeed returned to him, he would never be able to look his flatmate in the eye ever again.
