Summary: In which Sherlock and John meet ten months and three-and-a-half thousand miles earlier.
Why read it:
Is a “why read” section even necessary for this fic? You’ve all probably seen this fic squeed, sobbed, and flailed over on your dashes for quite some time now.
Is there anything that I, a lowly fangirl, can possibly say in order to pimp out this masterpiece anymore than the fandom has already succeeded in doing?
Notes: Yes, this is a WIP, and therefore against our policy. For our 221st post though, we thought it necessary to finally rec this magnum opus.
Sadly, it will be our last regular post for an indeterminate amount of time. As promised, the rec list from the A Study In Fic submissions will be posted…. eventually.
It might even happen this week. Maybe. But we here at Fuck Yeah Sherlock Fics, ever the classiest of bitches, are proud to be ending things with a bang.
Rating: PG-13 (Hold the fuck up. On a Saturday?)
Genre: Humor/Gen *gasp* ain’t that interesting?

Summary: Fill for the kink meme prompt:
Sherlock in a sex shop.
Why read it: Because it’s freaking hilarious.
Sherlock, if he ever even knew to begin with, has obviously deleted everything he’s learned about the more… nontraditional aspects of sex. That’s OK though. What’s the point of investigating something you already know?
Give this a shot people, I promise you’ll at least crack a smile. And you can’t leave John to suffer through this by himself, he’s getting a bit desperate.

Summary: A well-timed blizzard, sibling rivalry, and Sherlock-in-a-box. I don’t even know.
Why read it: Because Sherlock’s reaction to his brother coming over is something akin to this baby eating a lemon.
The combination of childish!Sherlock and meddling!Mycroft has never failed to amuse me, especially when John is forced to use all of his army training to stop himself from cutting a bitch. Trust me, it’s a fun read.

John keeps his hands in his pockets, except at streetcorners, where he still sometimes tries to get Harry to hang onto his sleeve as they cross. It’s embarrassing. She walks ahead of him a little bit, to discourage that kind of thing.
Why read it: Eleven-year-old Harry Watson is a BAMF. She will kick your ankles until she gets whatever it is she wants, and let me tell you, that shit hurts. She can also tell you all about just how fucking awesome bunnies are. And let’s face it, they’re the most bad ass mothers out there.
^ Case in fucking point.
And she snoops well enough to make any Holmes proud. All while wearing her favorite fuzzy yellow jumper that makes her feel like she’s wearing the goddamn sun.
I guess jumper-love runs in the family
Notes: This story is actually the sequel of another great story, The Dangerous Book for Boys. The sequel can be read alone, but I would definitely recommend reading both.

Summary: John isn’t the most eloquent of men.
Why read it: I don’t know if I can tell you how beautiful this fic is. John’s voice here is absolutely perfect, and I adore the way the format moves through his and Sherlock’s entire life together. All of the word choices are phenomenal and the touches of humor are amazing and the emotions are heart-rending and I just LOVE. THIS. FIC. SO. MUCH.
Rating: NC-17 (Warning: Non-con)

Summary: Sherlock has become obsessed with his flatmate. Hypnotizing John to let Sherlock do what he likes seems the logical solution.
Why read it: Have you ever read one of those fics that has you yelling at your screen? No? Well you’re about to. (If you choose to read this fic, that is…)
Given the summary, I knew where this fic was going from the very beginning, but that didn’t stop me from frantically shouting at Sherlock the entire time.
When he started to get bit-not-good ideas in his head:
When he decided that there would be absolutely no consequences for his actions:
When things went too far:
That being said, this is a fic that will have you cursing like Martin Freeman on a bad day. Loudly, explicitly, and creatively. It’s a real punch to the emotions and if that’s your thing, give it a read.
