John has no idea what to say to that. He kisses Sherlock instead, dips his fingers just under the waistband of pyjama bottoms, begins tugging them down.

They especially don't talk during sex.

If they are going to have sex, Sherlock notices the signs hours beforehand, and he prepares carefully. The lights are off, they're under the covers, he prepares himself using lots of lube so he can make it feel as much like a woman as he can, and he doesn't let himself make any noise so that, if John wishes, he can pretend that he's still with Mary."

Summary: AU - John and Sherlock are professional tennis players and it’s Wimbledon. One is a broken almost was at the end of his career, the other an arrogant rising star tipped for greatness.

Rating/Warnings: Explicit (lot of warnings)

Long Ago and Far Away
Summary: AU - ‘Are you in the habit of inviting queer men back to your flat, John?’ he murmured, his eyes half-lidded as he stared at John again. John huffed a breath through his nose. ‘None quite so peculiar as you,’ he said after a long pause, lifting his eyes to Sherlock’s.October, 1937. A chance encounter late one night leads to Sherlock following John home. I can’t really put it much better than Vera Lynn herself: That certain night, the night we met / there was magic abroad in the air.

Rating/Warnings: Explicit

The Progress of Sherlock Holmes
Summary: Sherlock is head over heels for John, but you wouldn't know it by looking at him. First-person present-tense series of short scenes from Sherlock's point of view, borrowing heavily from Arthur Conan Doyle's stories.
Rating/Warnings: Explicit

The Road Less Traveled
Summary: Sherlock realises that John's dating habits involve an unacceptable level of risk... what if he meets an unusually tolerant woman and ends up getting married? Slash / Romance / Angst / Humour ... Now with added Christmas!

Rating/Warnings: Explicit

Saving Sherlock Holmes
Summary: Sherlock Holmes, schoolboy. Yeah, that basically sums it up.
Rating/Warnings: Mature

A Cure for Boredom
Summary: They'd never talked about sex in the year they'd known each other. Well, that wasn't quite correct: Sherlock had never said a word about sex; John had bemoaned his personal dearth of it on many occasions.
Rating/Warnings: Explicit (PWP)

The Heart in the Whole
Summary: Events after 'The Great Game' leave Sherlock dependent on his best friend and colleague. But John has a secret of his own...
Rating/Warnings: Mature

Control Alt Delete
Summary: If you could delete everything except what was really important, would you? Sherlock and John explore the question and each other. Rated M for Men Going at It and some very dark scenes. Inspired by season one.
Rating/Warnings: Explicit

Curious Case
Summary: After burning his hands, Sherlock's unable to release his 'tension' in the usual manner. Who should he turn to? His totally, completely straight friend and flatmate who's totally not into Sherlock or his boy parts at all. Definitely.
Rating/Warnings: Explicit (PWP)

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.
Rating/Warnings: Teen

The Violet Hour
Summary: AU - In 1920, two years after the end of the Great War, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson investigate two disappearances, eerily similar but separated by 80 years. In the process, they make enemies (and friends) of Bloomsbury intellectuals; travel to Sussex; deal with the aftermath of John's past in the trenches; read Victorian pornography; drink copious amounts of tea; and, of course, fall in love.
Rating/Warnings: Explicit

Hallowed Eve
Summary: It probably wasn't the smartest idea to let Sherlock choose the costumes for Halloween, but John never considered himself the smartest man in the room, anyway.
Rating/Warnings: Teen

Be Here Now
Summary: John Watson was already fighting demons when he and Sherlock met. With Sherlock's suicide, it all comes flooding back, forcing Sherlock to intervene before he's solved the persistent riddles of Jim Moriarty and his game.

Begins six months after the events of The Reichenbach Fall.
Rating/Warnings: Mature (lots of warnings)

Off on the Wrong Foot

Rating/Warnings: Explicit

A Week is Just Seven Days Isn't It?
Summary: When John heads overseas for a week, Sherlock's forced to fend for himself. It goes about as well as anyone could have anticipated. Which is to say, very, very poorly. Don't worry, things'll be fine in just seven days.
Rating/Warnings: Teen, Pre-Slash

Electric Pink Hand Grenade
Summary: "If Sherlock's brain is a hard drive, then these attacks are an electro-magnetic pulse." Sherlock Holmes does not do anything by half, not even a migraine.

Rating/Warnings: M

To Light Another's Path
Summary: Teaching John to observe seems to be a losing battle, but when Sherlock falls ill and submits himself to John's care, will he realise that there is more to life than the science of deduction? Meanwhile, there is a murder to solve, and John must try and convince Sherlock not to sacrifice his own health for the sake of the case. Eventual John/Sherlock Hurt/Comfort case fic. Post the Great Game
Rating/Warnings: Explicit (Warnings: Language, occasional gore, medical treatment and symptoms, mentions of attempted suicide (in the past) and sexually explicit scenes)

Misdialed
Summary: AU John needs a new phone, one that doesn’t bend time and have an amazing man on the other end who claims to be the world’s greatest detective, except that he can’t figure out how he called Dr. Watson instead of his brother. However, with a criminal mastermind on the loose, John's phone connection may be the only thing that can save them both.
Rating/Warnings: Teen + 

The Thing Is
Summary: The problem with living with Sherlock, John thought, was that you never, never, ever knew the significance of anything. Like your flatmate's nose buried in your hair. Whilst you're in bed.
Rating/Warnings: Explicit

Molecular Gastronomy
Summary: Sherlock has to decide whether to solve an interesting murder case or to attend a cooking course and make John happy. Or can he do both at the same time? Johnlock, not explicit, funny
Rating/Warnings: Teen

Back in the Day
Summary: John's drunk and some idiot's got himself high in the bathroom. It's a shame he's the only trainee doctor in the house. A Johnlock story set while John is at university and an AU in that this time Sherlock is the one who's a few years older and is trying to find something to keep his interest in London after getting bored and being thrown out of Uni.
There's also a Sequel: One Fixed Point in a Changing AgeOne Fixed Point in a Changing Age which is now complete.
Rating/Warnings: Mature (warnings: drug use, alcohol use, slash eventually of course)

Give Me The Quiet Things
Summary: John had never been afraid of asking "What's the worst that can happen?" He was pretty sure he'd already seen it. And been very wrong.
Rating/Warnings: NC-17

Multiply (the sum of our parts)
Summary: After Reichenbach and in order to 1) Keep Sherlock alive, 2) Keep John alive and 3) Get Sherlock home to England as soon as possible, Mycroft devises a plan that will not only incentivise John's continued sanity and survival but force Sherlock to come running. It is a perfect plan, though perhaps less than ethically sound. He has no doubts that using frozen samples of your younger brother's sperm to create children for his husband to care for falls deeply within the realm of socially unacceptable behaviour, but it is efficient, and that is what matters most.
Rating/Warnings: Mature

Journey's End
Summary: (Canon, not BBC Sherlock) Set during the Hiatus, looking at what happened between the events in The Final Problem and those in The Adventure of the Empty House. Mentions FINA and EMPT, but also many references to most of the stories in the Adventures and Memoirs collections.

The Last Drop
Summary: Sherlock and John fend off boredom with a night of heavy drinking. (Part one in The First and Last Trilogy - The First and Last Trilogy)

The Iceman Cometh
Summary: An intriguing puzzle tempts Sherlock to accept Victor Trevor's invitation to the French Riviera, but all is not what it seems. Frustrated by the case and increasingly concerned about an absent John, Sherlock uncovers far more than he was meant to and is forced to become a fugitive, pursued by those on both sides of the law, as he fights for his freedom and the lives of all those around him.
Rating/Warnings: Mature - Non-con drug use, violence

Skeleton Key
Summary: Sherlock Holmes is anything but predictable; a fact that John has grown used to over the year they have known each other. However, nothing could prepare him for his reaction to Sherlock's mysterious decision to pierce his tongue. (Eventual John/Sherlock)
Rating/Warnings: Explicit

Ten Days
Summary: Sherlock Holmes has been dead for forty months, and John is at last beginning to live his life again. But just when he is beginning to believe that he might be happy, his world crashes back down around him. John is named a missing person. Someone is pointing DI Lestrade in the wrong direction. And as the days pass, his situation only grows more dire. It seems like the disappearance of his best friend is the only thing that can bring Sherlock Holmes back from the dead.
Rating/Warnings: Explicit. Warnings: Torture

The Sign of the Four
Summary: A year and a half post-Reichenbach, a damaged Sherlock Holmes returns to Baker Street. But everything's changed, leaving the friendship between Sherlock and John tense and uncertain. While struggling to adjust, Sherlock, John, and Mary Morstan find themselves on a case involving betrayal, deception, and tests of friendship. But will it make their bonds stronger or tear them apart? And will it matter if Sherlock's demons pull him under first? An incredibly angst-filled adaptation of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle novel. Essentially designed as a theoretical 'next episode' of the show.?
Rating/Warnings: Teen +

The Best of Times
Summary: Struggling to cope with life after Reichenbach, John is gravely injured during a vicious, apparently motiveless street attack. Convalescing, on Mycroft’s invitation, at the Holmes family seat, John encounters someone entirely unexpected and uncovers an intriguing seventeen year-old mystery. Things hot up as John finds himself battling to work out the solution before James Moriarty’s legacy catches up with him – and also rekindling a love affair that was never really given the chance to blossom.
Rating/Warnings: Mature. Post-TRF

Filthy/Gorgeous
Summary: Even if this was legal, even if there was nothing technically wrong with what he was doing he knew that if he were caught, or if he were seen by someone he knew, or if he were found out in any way the shame would never, ever die. What would his regiment say? What would his family say? What would anyone say if they discovered that John was currently in a cab on the way to pick up a male prostitute for the evening?
Rating/Warnings: Explicit. WIP - slow to update

The Real Meaning of Idioms
Summary: After two weeks away, John finally texts Sherlock. He doesn't expect Sherlock to respond. He doesn't expect Sherlock to keep texting him. And he really doesn't expect things to spiral out of control so rapidly.
Rating/Warnings: Teen+

Summary: Whatever it took, he was going to make this work.
Rating/Warnings: Explicit

What He Likes
Summary: 6 months post-Reichenbach, Sherlock approaches Irene with an unusual job offer: he wants to shoot up, and he needs someone to mind him. But can she remain detached whilst Sherlock spirals deeper and deeper into his addiction? A dark and frank character and relationship study.
Rating/Warnings: M for pervasive drug use, some language, and sexual content (Adlock, not Johnlock)

Some Things Never Change
Summary: All those light years away and the Admiral could still get under his skin. He flipped over to his back again and noted as the time projector flipped numbers across the wall as a reminder. He sat up on the mattress and started to button up his shirt. His fingers stopped moving almost before they started. Why the hell would it even matter anyway? No one in their right mind would ever consent to being his partner, and that included the Burskins.

Songs of Expedience
Summary: Post Reichenbach adventures told from varying perspectives. Sherlock, Sebastian Moran, and John told separately, then joined (minus one) into an ongoing narrative.

Rating/Warnings: M

Trying to Find the In-Between

Hearts for any Fate
Summary: Everyone’s eyes turn toward the young man being held by the scruff of his neck. He’s easily as tall as the sheriff, but much thinner in build. When he raises his head up, John’s heart catches at the sight of pale eyes reflecting the moonlight back to them. He very carefully controls his breathing but he can tell, even from this distance, that this newcomer noted the reaction. Jack takes in the raggedy young man’s clothes, his unkempt hair, pale eyes and high cheekbones. He thinks to himself "halfbreed" but out loud he calls Mike to come forward. Mike steps up and looks at the pitiful creature in front of them. He recognizes a boy he hasn’t seen in near ten years.
Rating/Warnings: Unrated, AU (Wild West)

Starry Eyed
Summary: When sixteen year old John Watson escapes from his poor and abusive home and manages to get into a private school, he can't believe his luck. However, the other students in this school aren't your average kind. When he runs into a bad-boy Sherlock who's known to be unpredictable as he is passionate about everything he does, sparks fly. However, Sherlock's never actually shown interest in anyone before, and his goof-off attitude hides a genuine brilliance about him. There's no denying that both of them spending a semester together will get a result. The question is, will it be good or bad for the two of them?
Rating/Warnings: Mature

An English Jazz Player in Chicago
Summary: "Yes, sir. I am Sherlock Holmes." Sherlock doesn’t seem to know what to say next as his tongue has turned into glue and his heart is now residing somewhere on the floor next to his feet. He wants this so badly and here he’s gone and botched it up right from the beginning
Rating/Warnings: Not Rated, AU (Chicago 1920s), (Now Complete)

Soldiering On Through Friendly Fire
Summary: A shadow from Sherlock's past forces the boys to reunite after the fall. Set directly after Reichenbach. John is not as unknowing as Mycroft thought, and not as easy to break as Moran thought. Sherlock might not be as unaffected by this caring thing as he thought himself.
Rating/Warnings: Explicit

Private Ponderings
Summary: Sherlock Holmes is in love. It had taken him an inexcusable amount of time to figure it out, but in his defence it must be said that (a) it is extremely hard to deduce oneself and (b) never having been in love before he is completely new to the feeling.

The Measure of a Gentleman
Summary: It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a partner. Less universally acknowledged is that a single man in possession of very little in the way of fortune may be in want of a partner as well, but John Watson had little time or energy to devote to his own wants or needs... Enter one Mr Holmes...

Summary: "The fact you endured three years of hell on earth to get back to this flat means that you valued enough of your life before the suicide to come back at all. So feel free to bitch at me, bully me, hurt me, shut me out and hide from me --it won't fucking matter if you do, because I am unwilling to let you go a second time." A story in which John and Sherlock struggle to become what they've always been, Mycroft interferes, and an unforeseen obstacle climbs out of the rubble to threaten everything that they've all worked for. Eventual Johnlock, Post-Reichenbach, Mature rating.
Rating/Warnings: Explicit

Midnight Blue Serenity
Summary: “This was like nothing John had ever thought to associate with Sherlock: stubble, skin-tight jeans and three small silver rings gleaming at the crest of one ear. It was unbelievable, like stepping into an alternative universe, and John couldn't stop staring.” When Sherlock infiltrates a club in order to track down a serial killer, his altered appearance is enough to make John question his assumption that Sherlock is beyond his reach. However, is he the only one who appreciates his flatmate's charms, or is Sherlock at risk of becoming the next victim?

Long Time Coming
Summary: Get John and Sherlock engaged they said. It'll be fun they said...

Rating/Warnings: Explicit

Rating/Warnings: Mature

Come to Morning
Summary: John Watson was a Shire Hobbit, born and bred, but he was really quite terrible at it. Perhaps that's why Bilbo Baggins has never heard his story before.

Rating/Warnings: Teen+, AU (Crossover/Fusion - The Hobbit)

Loosed Reins
Summary: “You’ve stuffed an entire body into the fridge this time,” John accused. “What happened to the milk? The leftover risotto? My bloody jam?”
Sherlock opened his eyes at that. “As a doctor, it should be readily apparent to you that there is only a partial body in our refrigerator. Popular horror stories notwithstanding, it’s rare for an entire corpse to fit into one this size. I had to cut it up into several parts to pack it in, and there is still only seven eighths of it there.”
John stared at the ceiling. “That’s... not better.”

You Can Hear the Wind
Summary: Sherlock discovers he can feel emotions after all. He’s just not sure what he’s supposed to do about them. And why is John always upset with him?
Rating/Warnings: Teen +

Triage
Summary: Sherlock’s mind goes exceedingly, devastatingly quiet and gray-blank. When he speaks it’s through a thick haze, it’s through molasses, he’s so disconnected from the words that it may as well be the unconscious shooter speaking.
“It was only a twenty-two,” he says, voice unfeeling and unwavering, as though that makes any sense at all.

Rating/Warnings: Explicit

The Measure of a Gentleman
Summary: It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a partner.

Enter one Mr Holmes...

Rating/Warnings: Teen +

Crossing Bridges
Summary: Looking back later in life, John always felt that he should have seen it coming sooner. But the first weeks after the Heroic Return had been so filled up with moving back in and press conferences and recovering from the recent months and explaining and forgiving and soothing hurt friends and solving that case Lestrade had brought to them probably just to come to terms with Sherlock again that John only realised something was seriously wrong with his friend when it was too late for an easy way out.
Rating/Warnings: Explicit

Reichenbach Rising
Summary: Mycroft’s eyes were blazing. “I know you want to physically harm me and I do hope you have the opportunity soon, but again, I need to know, John.” Mycroft stepped closer, his keen eyes slicing through all of John’s frail artifice. “I need to know if, given the chance, you would lay down your life for the life of Sherlock Holmes.”

I Will Take Care Of You

Sequelae
Summary: The truth is, Sherlock's coming apart at the seams. He needs—he needs, but they can't all dance.

And the truth is: John and Mary don't see until it may be too damned late.
Rating/Warnings: Mature, Polyamory Johnlockary, check the tags, Season 3 spoilers

Bleed Me Out

Stag Night for Two
Summary: Begins with the stag night scene in The Sign of Three. John grabbing Sherlock's knee leads to much more. Incorporates elements from His Last Vow now, as well, and has kind of gone totally off the canon rails. In the best way, I hope.

Lots of lovey, porny goodness, and later some good violence and villains.
Rating/Warnings: Read the tags

Summary:

Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, and Mycroft Holmes had never been under the illusion that they'd beaten Moriarty at his games, but the uneasy truce that had been struck had become a fairly comfortable place. That is until strange reports start to reach Whitehall, a friend falls ill, and John notices changes in Sherlock that he can't begin to explain.

(Sequel to Be Here Now. This won't make a lick of sense unless you read that one.  Sorry about the length!)

Sherlock and John find comfort in each other's arms, but as ever with these two, it's not your typical relationship. It's fluffy at the beginning, gets deeply angsty in the middle, gets porny at the end. Tried to cover all my bases.
