Re: fic recommendations - non-slash

Here I've got a WIP I like very much. It's been updated quite regularly so it shouldn't be a problem.
It's about Sherlock and Lestrade and how they first met in 1995 when Sherlock was a homeless, drug-addicted teenager. Seven years later they meet again and Lestrade realises what a genius he's discovered and how useful he can be for the Met. It's non-slash and very well written.

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8794590/1/Got-My-Eye-On-You

The story's a sort of prequel to two longer fics which are quite interesting and dramatic. They're set after TGG but show another outcome than the one we know from ASIB. They feature John (non-slash) and Moriarty. However, in these Sherlock is characterised as being an autist and showing some of the classic symptoms (i.e. he appears in some ways like a victim and less stronger than in the series). If you don't like this, don't read it.

Thank you, that sounds really interesting. I've just started reading "Collateral Damage" and it's very good so far. Sherlock's autistic symptoms are woven well into the story and presented in a way that makes them seem quite plausible. It surely makes him appear a bit weak, but it is a nice change from the many other stories where he is mostly just described as quarrelsome or arrogant.
Best sentence so far: Don't assume it meant that he cares for you more than he would for any stranger with a load of snipers threatening them. That's just the way he is. That nearly made me cry.

Re: fic recommendations - non-slash

Yes, I liked them, too. And we surely get a lot of arrogant, superior Sherlock in other fics. And besides, his brain functions aren't damaged.

Hehehe found a cute little sick fic, where John has a cold and Sherlock doesn't know what to do.

Re: fic recommendations - non-slash

I hope it is ok to recommend it here as QE says it's slash but I would G-rate it anyway,
and you would miss a lot if you love comedies and omit this one only because you don't like T,M or E-rated stories.

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8853079/1/Molecular-Gastronomy
Molecular Gastronomy by our Quite Extraordinary
who did a fantastic job here. A hilarious little comedy about the results of a special cooking course for Sherlock, funny from beginning to end 
Well, the end gets kind of fluffy.

And if you don't like to read about Sherlock/John as a couple at all, then just ignore this posting and forgive me. Thanks.

... but there may be some new players now. It’s okay. The East Wind takes us all in the end.

Re: fic recommendations - non-slash

Now, I've got one that really, really got me hooked. It's very well crafted, I simply couldn't stop reading. But, and this is a big BUT: it's extremely brutal. All the warnings the author gives are justified. So, if you are very sensitive give it a wide berth. If not, it will make a gripping read.

No slash. Well drawn characters. Additional information like detailed timelines in the appendix.

Post Reichenbach. Forty months after his faked death Sherlock returns to London after having learned that John has been abducted.

Re: fic recommendations - non-slash

This one is rec'd on the Johnlock thread but is not actually Johnlock. It's platonic/friendship and a very good series.

The Green Blade
Summary: As a serial killer hits the headlines, the police are out of their depth and the next victim is out of time. With faith in Sherlock Holmes at an all time low, this is a case which will push loyalties to the limit. Not Slash.

This time cheating & including 2 recs in one post:

Summarised by fic's author as:

Written for prompt. Mycroft planned the meeting of his brother and Watson, because it takes a particular type of person to cope with Sherlock Holmes.

Re: fic recommendations - non-slash

Really quite sweet little one-shot

Seeds


In a fit of boredom Sherlock plants some seeds, may or may not eat one cracker, and definitely waxes dramatic on the sofa for a while.

Re: fic recommendations - non-slash

I liked this little story:

Catching the Wind
Summary: "Sherlock is a stranger, looking at himself through broken, tempered glass. Amnesia is a tricky thing. Good thing he has John."

Some parts may be a little halting - I think the author is not a native English speaker -, but it is well-written and very emotional.

Re: fic recommendations - non-slash

Here's one by the wonderful Kerkerian-Horizon. She's German and writes excellent English. I love all of her fics. 
This one is non-slash and tells the moving story of how old Sherlock and John live together. Very moving.

Naah, those storys in which they're growing old always make me so sad and I'm still reading them only to torture myself. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cry.png
 
Now I have to remind myself that they're still young and that we only have six episodes up until now. It's alright girl... you're being all fine.... gaaah!!

Re: fic recommendations - non-slash

So On We Go

Summary: Four times Mycroft was allowed to be a brother and one time he really, really wasn't.

A Mycroft-POV 5-things fic which was just really lovely! A tad OOC at the end but that's ok.

Salvage
Sherlock returns and the boys salvage what's left of one another, putting their lives back together and solving mysteries along the way.

Re: fic recommendations - non-slash

Wow....okay...just wow. Read an amazing case fic just now. It's all in one chapter but it's very long. Platonic friendship between Sherlock and John and incredibly well written.

Serious recommendation!!

The Poster Girl
A seemingly straightforward case has Lestrade calling for Sherlock's help. Written from John's POV, this story takes place two months after the events in "The Great Game" and follows the investigation of the murder of Veronica Havisham: seventeen, popular—and murdered in Hainault Forrest on a Friday night in June.

I'm nearly done with this one. It's written well, and your slash-glasses don't have to be very strong. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
Thanks once more for recommending!

Re: fic recommendations - non-slash

 I liked that one as well and nearly recommended it in the other thread as the chemistry between them is points definitely to slash. Well written, good plots, fine character studies. Thanks again for recommending it. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: fic recommendations - non-slash

I've recently read three (IMO excellent) non-slash fics by author Kali47, which I'd like to recommend here. If you like exciting case-fics, as well as quite a lot of brotherly Sherlock-Mycroft-interaction, you'll love these.

The Long Week: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7911580/1/The-Long-Week
summary: Sherlock negotiated with Mycroft 24 hours at Baskerville. Therefore when his brother comes to him with a case, the detective simply cannot refuse... and all hell's breaking loose.

Behind Closed Doors: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8086632/1/Behind-Closed-Doors
summary: A violent serial killer roams the streets of West London in what quickly turns out to be Sherlock and John's most frustrating case ever.

Two Words: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8318174/1/Two-Words (fun fact for all German forum members: this takes mostly place in Germany ;-))
summary: When Mycroft mysteriously disappears somewhere in central Europe and the worst is assumed, Sherlock and John get on the very first plane which is vaguely heading in the right direction.
