Friday: Fanart and a Fic
Word count: 22,184
Summary: On 1st January, 1920, John Watson meets Sherlock Holmes.
There is a crater in the middle of Europe, and John Watson had been pulled out of it alive.
Why read it: JAZZ AGE AU!!!
I can not tell you how much I love the idea of Sherlock in the 20’s. The author does an amazing job keeping the fic remarkably similar to the show, while still managing to avoid any anachronisms that might be tempted to sneak in. Oh, and her depiction of Sherlock playing the violin?
I could read that for-fucking-ever.

Summary: Mrs. Hudson plays matchmaker for her tenants.
Why read it: We all know that the biggest shipper of Sherlock/John is Mrs. Hudson. (With Mycroft as a close second, of course.) This is a really cute portrayal of Mrs. Hudson’s efforts to transform Sherlock and John’s relationship from this:

Summary: It’s bigger on the inside, she’d said, and he’d smiled and whisked her away.
Why read it: Here’s a beautiful look at the women of Sherlock as companions of the Doctor. All of their experiences are so unique and true to each character, ranging from humorous to tragic, just as anything Doctor Who related should.
I know the men of Sherlock get the most love, but in a show full of BAMFs, let’s give it up for the ladies.

Summary: Sherlock is conducting a vulgarity experiment. Everyone gets to suffer for science, especially John.
Why read it: This fic, dear followers, has some truly cringe-worthy, WTF, I can’t believe he actually said that, moments…
Although what is said, isn’t really quite as shocking as when it’s said. This fic delighted that childish little part of me that seriously gets off on seeing someone shocked silent. It just instilled in me the urge to be completely and utterly inappropriate at the most inconvenient times.
I haven’t felt that since the last time I read Christopher Moore. Good job, pennydreadful, good job.

Summary: For once, John sees something that Sherlock doesn’t.
Why read it: It is my firm belief that all wing!fic should include gratuitous amounts of wing!kink. This fic, however, is so stunningly beautiful that I really didn’t miss my usual shameless smut. Of course, if someone out there feels a sudden urge to write wing!kink, hit me up.

Summary: Mrs. Hudson walks in on Sherlock giving John a blowjob.
Why read it: Personally, it would only take the above summary to get me to read this fic, but it also helps that it is entirely true to Mrs. Hudson’s sweetness and charm. But really: Mrs. Hudson walks in on Sherlock giving John a blowjob!
