Re: Johnlock Fic Recs *warning - adult content*

So glad you guys liked it! I never thought it would be endearing either, but it was just too adorable. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

Chapters: 7/7
Fandom: Sherlock (TV)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings

Summary: 

Baker Street is very much the same. Only different. 


And Sherlock is just trying not to drown.

Bookmarked that one the other day out of curiosity.  Now, with your recommendation, I will have to read it!

By now, I have read it as well and it is great. You won't regret it.

For me it was interesting to see thst the author made many choices about how Johnlock could go on after TFP, and most of the times she wrote the complete opposite of what I am writing.

Re: Johnlock Fic Recs *warning - adult content*

Hi everybody,
Any suggestions for some long form, not AU, not post-Reichenbach fic? For some reason, I've been reading a lot of post-Reichenbach lately and I'm a bit sick of grieving, grumpy John and sorry, remorseful Sherlock. I don't mean it doesn't feature Reichenbach at all, just something not centred around it. 
I always prefer a good serving of fluff in my fics, but something angsty with a happy ending will be welcomed as well.
Thanks

Have you read "Nature & Nurture"? One of my favourites. Parentlock of a very different kind. Sexy. Angsty. Fluffy.

Yes, I read it and I loved it. I'm already trying to forget it so I can read it again http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png
 Thanks anyway.

Maybe you could browse a bit in this thread. Or try this tumblr blog, they have lots of fic recs according to preferences/subjects:

Re: Johnlock Fic Recs *warning - adult content*

There is also the epic, novel-length series "There but for the Grace of John Watson". It's in three parts. Part three is unfinished, but part one and part two form a complete story in itself. Part three is really the start of a new story. So you can read Part one and two and have read a complete story.

Novel-length and novel-quality with a lot of angst, but with a happy ending.

You can also try Midnight Blue Serenity by BeautifulFiction.

http://archiveofourown.org/works/635897/chapters/1151468

(My link might only work for smartphones.)

Sherlock poses as a bar tender to solve a case. It is really hot and the case is interesting.

Or if you prefer older fics you could try "The Green Blade" by verityburns.

http://archiveofourown.org/works/320879/chapters/516147

It's a case fic about a serial killer with what was called "Johnlock if you war your Johnlock glasses". Nothing explicit, but sweet hits that they could be more than friends soon. (If I remember correctly. I really should read it again myself!)

Thank you! I'll be spending 10+ hours on trains and buses this weekend, and this should help.

Yess! I loved this one. I betaed the Russian translation (so I spent quite some time with this fic) and I was astonished by the different (bromance) reading of the story. Johnlock was like a Schroedinger cat there: it was simultaneously there and not! lol
I also kept thinking about our debate thread a lot

I just finished "The Case of the Green Gown" - wow, what a read! Thank you very much to those who recommended it. I had never heard of it before and would probably have missed it. Of the many good things that can be said about it, I would like to mention one that impressed me very much: for me this is the first truly convincing relationship story for Mycroft. Beautiful and sad. 

I just finished it also and would like to second everything Susi just said.  It was fantastic.

My God. This fic. Thank you guys for bringing it up, and my utmost gratitude to whoever recommended it in the first place. I just finished it, and I'm all emotional and overwhelmed and stunned. If you haven't read it, leave everything you are doing and go for it. It's an outstanding story, extremely well crafted, complex and bittersweet.

I really enjoyed this one, it was a thrill to read from start to finish. I loved how we got inside Sherlock's head after the aftermath of TFP. Thanks for the rec!
