Title: The Camford Dares
Author: writerfan2013
Pairing: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Length: 17,000 words
Rating: T
Warnings: none
Verse: Sherlock BBC
Author's summary: Sherlock is being mysterious and secretive and John is being particularly stubborn and their annoying case in a well-known university town is not helping anything. Casefic! Mystery and infuriation but ultimately Johnlock.

Reccer's comments: This is a really well-done combination of casefic and relationship fic. Full of many beloved tropes: mutual pining, UST, working undercover, bed-sharing, and more, plus some midlife not-really-crises-but-definitely-annoyances as John is forced to run around a college campus after Sherlock and attempt to blend in with undergrads. The mystery is interesting and clever, and the writing is sharp enough to refresh familiar tropes and make them feel memorable and unique. Best of all, John and Sherlock's relationship is suffused with both infuriation and affection -- the author catches its difficulty and its sweetness at the same time, which is hard to do. I enjoy and admire this fic very much.
