Mentioned to Beth I was reading Sherlock fic this morning, and she asked me to point her to some good stuff. So here's the two best that I've read so far, both from the kink meme because apparently all I do anymore is read kink meme fills. Both of these are WIP, but the first one is going to be finished quite soon according to the author.

Once More, With Feeling [link]
Promopt: You know the episode of Miranda where her mum sets up a party to introduce Miranda to a blind date, so Miranda and Stevie pretend to be together to get out of it? Yeah? :D
John's mum is desperate to set John up with a nice girl. So she invites him over to a dinner party to introduce him to this woman she thinks would be just perfect for him. Only, John is really not interested, so makes his excuse by claiming that, actually, he's gay and he doesn't think his boyfriend would like that very much.
His plan backfires when John's mother invites both John and his significant other to dinner, and John has to bully Sherlock into accompanying him for an evening of unparalleled awkwardness.
Why I love it: Okay, so this is flat out a romcom story. It is absolutely hilarious to watch John flail about as he tries to figure out why Sherlock is being so damned perfect.

Too Much To Hold [link]
Prompt: I know we've had autistic!Sherlock before, and some really good kid!fic, but I'd like to see them combined: I'd like to see John having to raise a friend's autistic kid for some reason, and finding out about Sherlock's diagnosis in the process (ending in J/S, of course.)
Why I love it: Okay, why I love this takes a little back story. Back when Mom was still taking classes at the local college, she met a woman named Cara in one of her ASL classes. Cara has two sons, one named Noah who is autistic. I have on occasion watched Noah, and he is by far my favorite little guy ever. (True story: we both have a ridiculous amount of love for HSM and we both think Sharpay is "not nice but good singing.") Because of this, I have jumped on every prompt on the kink meme that has come up mentioning autism. The author of this particular fill is doing a wonderful job of conveying autism realistically without being over the top or insensitive.

Title: What He Missed
Fandom: BBC's Sherlock/Doctor Who (Eleventh Doctor)
Characters/pairing: Implied John/Sherlock, one-sided John/Eleventh Doctor
Warnings: No beta and not Brit-picked because this was just a quick thing to keep me entertained at work. Apologies for any errors.
Summary: An old friend comes to visit John, but the good doctor has to decline his generous offer.

Notes: For this prompt at [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc_fic: Sherlock/Doctor Who crossover: Either Sherlock and Watson on the trail of the Master (and getting taunted every step of the way, of course), or Sherlock having to work with Eleven, or Watson being Eleven's companion. Or all of them, at once. TAKE YOUR PICK. I don't care what other details you throw in, so long as it turns out to be epically awesome. Possibly a bit angsty-er than the original prompter wanted. Feel free to point out any mistakes, since this was so hastily done.

Sherlock is bored. )
Current Mood: bored
Title: Few of Them Remember
Fandom: BBC's Sherlock/Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's Le Petit Prince
Characters/pairing: Sherlock Holmes/The Little Prince (as in Sherlock Holmes is the Little Prince, not Sherlock in a relationship with), John Watson, light S/J
Warnings: Familiarity with The Little Prince/Le Petit Prince helpful, as it probably won't make sense otherwise. Full text can be found here and the original French (which I highly recommend reading it in, if you're able) is here. It's very short, my book is less than 90 pages, and it's one of my favorite stories that I've ever read so GO READ IT RIGHT NOW.
Summary: Sometimes, Sherlock dreams. Of a rose. Of a desert. Of being tamed like he once tamed his fox.

Notes: For a prompt at [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc_fic: tl;dr Sherlock is The Little Prince, all growed up.

Then if a child comes to you, if he laughs, if he has golden hair, if he doesn't answer your questions, you'll know who he is. )
