Title: A Symphony of Chemical Reactions
Author: what_alchemy
Length: 2351 words
'Verse: BBC
Pairing: John/Sherlock
Rating: G
Author's summary: Cooking’s just chemistry and time management.

Reccer's remarks: Oh hey! Another one from the "How on earth has this never been recced before?" department. And it was a Holmestice present for our very own [personal profile] unovis . Sherlock prepares supper for John, with attendant research and predictable results. Empty bladder before reading. Do not attempt to consume anything, whether solid or liquid. Note this was posted in 2012, so considerable water has passed under the bridge, but I submit that anyone incapable of being delighted by this story is incapable of being delighted, full stop.

Excerpt:
In the cupboards: half a loaf of brown bread gone stale, tins of beans and sponge and soup, taxidermy owl, millet flour, melted sweets, mousetraps, desiccated clementines.

Fridge contents: snout of wild boar, aloe plant, blackcurrant preserves, empty milk carton, thin-sliced roast beef (by smell, too old for consumption; not too old to repurpose into mould cultures), apple juice, HP sauce, leftover beans, squirrel scalp ...

Title: Now advance they to the crime scene
Author:  merripestin
Length: 755 words
'Verse: BBC
Pairing: John/Sherlock
Rating: R
Author's summary: Hwaet! I sing of those immortal heroes: The Tall Detective and The Shorter Man.

Now tall Sherlock, called the genius,       sees the parsley in the butter,
cries Oh! and soon declares the answer.       He knows the killer, has deduced it;
and John Watson, called the doctor,       whose gun is sure, whose hands are steady,
cries to him in admiration,       hails him Brilliant and Fantastic.


Reccer's remarks: Merripestin has been recced here before, and with good reason, what with the splendid writing and the general versatility. "Now advance they" absolutely slays me, and it may slay you too if you meet either of the following conditions: (1) you have ever studied Old English and/or Old Norse poetry; (2) you have backbuttoned out of one too many fanfics in which Sherlock is referred to as "the taller man"/"the dark-haired detective"/"the tall slender baby deer" and John is "the shorter man"/"the sandy-haired man"/"the clumsy typist." During a sex scene.

Condition 1, if you do not already meet it, may sound like a chore, but take a quick look at this lovely riddle-poem. Yes, this rec reflects an attempt to lure you into not only merripestin's delightful fic/poem/thing but also to one of my favorite literary genres.

Rating: C, for crackety-crack-crack-crack (G)
Author's summary: Getting shot out of the canon...

Reccer's remarks: Look, it takes more time to describe this delicious little item than to read it. ACD's works compare stats, get taken out, sit on the shelf. No, it's nothing like hoping you're going to get asked to the prom, FFS, why would you think that?

Absolutely do not omit to read the exchanges in the comments, which are hilarious. Your reccer left kudos and welcomes any and all suggestions for coming up to the commenting standard set by other readers.

Excerpt:

“What about you, Vall? When were you last taken out?”
The Valley of Fear shrugged. “Don’t know. Can’t remember.”

Title: The Giant Rat of Sumatra, for Which the World Is Not Yet Prepared
Author:  tibididim
Length: ~2300 words
'Verse: BBC
Pairing: John/Sherlock
Rating: R (the author says T, but I say the brief sex scene is a bit more explicit than that)
Author's summary: "I don't think you should write about this one," said Sherlock.

Reccer's remarks: Oh, gosh. Remember the dear dead days when you could write comedy BBC John Watson/Sherlock Holmes without ignoring canon? *sighs wistfully*

This gem dates from the 2010 (inaugural!) Holmestice exchange, and I present it as an amuse-bouche for the beginning of this month's reccing stint. How shall I describe it? Once upon a time there was a coypu, that is to say an animal of the species otherwise known as a nutria. Never you mind how it got to Sumatra, or exactly by what means it then traveled to London; but, naturally, having arrived in London, it went on to a rendezvous with Sherlock and John. As fans of Arthur Conan Doyle will already suspect, the story is TOO HORRIBLE TO TELL, except to a certain select audience. Spoiler: the coypu has gone to join the choir invisible.
 

Excerpt:

"People like this sort of thing,” John said, studiously tapping out three more words. “Slight urban legend element, bit of disgustingness, happy ending - a man facing down a coypu -”

“They’re also known as nutria,” Sherlock said.

“Armed with nothing but a vastly superior intellect, man versus beast,” John continued.

“You’re starting to convince me, John,” said Sherlock, thoughtfully, “It seems much more dramatic now.”

Title: Robots and the Men Who Love Them
Author: JaneTurenne
Pairing: Holmes/Robo-Watson; The Doctor/Robo-The-Master
Length: 1,078 words
Rating: General Audiences
Verse: Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century x Doctor Who
Author's summary: An inevitable crossover--silly, fluffy, slashy, robot-lovin', timey-wimey crack.

Reccer's comments: So, a thing I did not know: somewhere in Doctor Who canon,* there is a Ninth Doctor (but not that Ninth Doctor) whose traveling companion is a robot version of the Master.

Given that, one obviously must have the Doctor and robo-Master stop in during the 22nd century to have tea with Holmes and his robotic Watson. (And then one must have Holmes and the Doctor needle each other about who is more gauche for keeping around a roboticized ex-lover, while the robots themselves merrily get up to hijinks.)

Happily, JaneTurenne has ably answered the call for this absolutely necessary story. I giggled, and giggled some more.




* In The Scream of The Shalka, to be precise. It is available on the BBC website, 90 minutes runtime, in Flash animation -- which requires a lot of clicking 'next' to watch, because it only loads three-ish minutes at a go. Watching it is not necessary to enjoying JaneTurenne's story, however; I enjoyed the story even before I knew the Doctor Who part is canon.

btw, for the trivia hounds: this particular Ninth Doctor is Richard E. Grant, who was also Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft Holmes, and Jack Stapleton. The other Ninth Doctor, Christopher Eccleston, wasn't anyone so far as I know -- and that kind of slacking is very possibly why every other British actor has had to shoulder three Holmesian roles apiece.

Characters: Lestrade, Sherlock & John
Length: 5615 words
Rating: Gen
Verse: BBC Sherlock
Author's summary: Written for the kinkmeme prompt "Lestrade finds a pet bird at a crime scene, but he likes birds, so he delivers it to Sherlock and John rather than having it euthanized. Sherlock is fascinated."

Reccer's comments: As a favour to Lestrade, Sherlock agrees to take care of a peculiar piece of evidence – a little pet bird. Sherlock takes a liking to it, though he pretends otherwise.
If you’re looking for something amusing and sweet, this is the fic for you.

Title: The Adventure of the Delirious Detective

Length: 6066 words
Rating: G /Pre-Slash
Verse: BBC Sherlock
Author's summary: Sherlock is back in 221B, but John isn't yet--until he receives a frantic phone call from Mrs. Hudson begging for his help.

Reccer's comments: This fic is based on ACD’s The Adventure of the Dying Detective and was written post Season 2. I like the underlying humour of this piece, and even if Sherlock’s way of trying to earn John’s forgiveness is very… Sherlock, it still feels a bit less manipulative than what happened in canon (it’s what needs to be done to solve a case!) and it’s a less angsty reconciliation than many written before TEH.

Length: 824 words
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Verse: Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson (1980)
Author's summary: Holmes makes a little confession over breakfast, and Watson does a lot of internal giggling.

Reccer's comments: The Whitehead and Pickering television adaptation of 1979/1980 is one of my favorite Holmes/Watson pairs — [livejournal.com profile] scfrankles described them recently as "a charming version of Holmes and Watson—devoted to each other, with a nice line in banter," and I can't improve on that.

This little story is note-perfect in its execution of Whitehead and Pickering's teasing, affectionate push-pull. I'm of two minds as to whether Whitehead's Holmes would ever say "I love you" aloud, but if he did, this is precisely the way it would go down. Fans of the series will recognize these two as utterly themselves, but no specific knowledge of their canon is needed to appreciate this bit of humorous fluff: you only have to appreciate a Holmes and Watson who truly, sincerely, enjoy each other, and are not shy about letting it show.

Pairing: Gen
Length: 2,897 words
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Verse: Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles [AKA LEGO Hound of the Baskervilles (Tuzarfilms)] / The LEGO Movie (2014)
Author's summary: Watson is still recuperating from his last adventure – he’s not so sure he wants to be The Special.

Reccer's comments: I was introduced to Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles, AKA LEGO Hound, last autumn and I loved it. (It’s a delightful little film on YouTube—only 42 minutes long. There’s a link in the author’s notes if you want to take a look.) And when I signed up for Holmestice the following month, more in hope than expectation I added it to my list of wants.

So I was thrilled when my assigned author chose to write something in this ‘verse. The film is deliberately cracky but the makers clearly love Holmes and Watson and their relationship, and have huge respect for their source material. In her fic [livejournal.com profile] gardnerhill keeps that delicate balance so well. And her idea of doing a crossover with the official LEGO Movie was inspired. I must admit I still haven’t seen that but I found a quick look at the trailers and other info on IMDB got me caught up enough. And you really don’t need to have seen either film to enjoy this story.

The fic begins just after Holmes and Watson have returned back to London from Dartmoor. They are confronted by a strange young woman who—somewhat to Holmes’ chagrin—seems to think Watson is the special one. And so a very funny adventure begins, filled with wonderful characters and brilliant lines—and Watson remaining resolutely and amusingly unimpressed throughout by The Prophecy that says only he can bring down the villain...

Author's summary: Death. Fic. 1899. What it says on the tin.

Reccer's comments: Well. You may be looking at that warning and that summary and thinking, ‘This really isn’t for me.’ But this is death played firmly for laughs. The story begins with what seems to be a retelling of The Blue Carbuncle. However, things quickly take a very different path…

This is so well-structured—the joke builds and builds. There are so many wonderful lines, and the story is laugh out loud funny. Just perfect.

Verse: Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson (1980)
Author's summary: Holmes stood; the infant steadied itself with a fistful of his waistcoat. “Watson, I am given to understand that this is—”

“Violet Victoria Mary Smith-Watson,” I said, hearing the death knell of my easy, bachelor life with Holmes.


Reccer's comments: In recent months I have had the pleasure of being introduced to many new Sherlock Holmes ‘verses. This is one of the more unknown ones. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson was a 1979-80 series, starring Geoffrey Whitehead as Holmes and Donald Pickering as Watson. Going by this fic, and also by the one episode I’ve seen, this is a charming version of Holmes and Watson—devoted to each other, with a nice line in banter.

The story is shown from Watson’s POV as he is abruptly given the responsibility of caring for the orphaned baby of a distant cousin. We follow him as he moves from thinking of himself merely as Violet’s guardian to accepting he’s now her parent. And also accepting that he was never, to use a contemporary term, a single father after all...

The fic is sweet, though never sentimental, and the tone is essentially humorous and lighthearted. But that is tempered with an acknowledgement of the realities of life in the Victorian era—especially how vulnerable children could be—and the realities of Holmes and Watson’s adventurous life.

The author links to a relevant Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson episode in her notes for your convenience, but you don’t need to have seen that or any of the series to thoroughly enjoy this heartwarming story.

Title: Albion and the Woodsman
Author: Glenmore
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Length: 54,437 words
Rating: Not Rated (I would rate it Mature)
Warnings: None
Verse: Sherlock BBC

Author's summary: Post Series 3. Sherlock and John are devastated after Mary Morstan makes her final moves. Sherlock relapses at the crack house, John walks around the world ...and a lot happens in between. Parentlock, in the good way.

Reccer's comments: If you are the type of reader who, like me, generally avoids first-person storytelling, then do yourself a favor and make an exception for this one. It's one of those rare fics that successfully paints Sherlock Holmes as a devoted single parent. The story is in turns funny, heartbreaking, and heartwarming.

It is told from Sherlock's POV, and begins post-series 3. It starts out after Sherlock has been shot for a second time by Mary Watson, an event that leads to her arrest and to John needing to disappear for awhile in order to get his head together. He leaves for a year-long walkabout around the world, leaving Sherlock devastated and returning to drugs. Of course he cleans himself up, only to be confronted several months later by a pregnant stranger claiming that Sherlock is the father.

We get to watch Sherlock fall immediately in love with his son Albion, and then take to single fatherhood like a duck takes to water. As Sherlock grows into his new role, he continues to pine for John and wait for his eventual return. The way Sherlock refers to John in his absence by different epithets such as 'eleven jumpers Watson' and 'Three pairs of brogues Watson' kept me delighted and laughing throughout.

We are introduced to several OC’s, not the least of which is Albion himself. His nanny gives soldier!John a run for his money (once he returns), and even the mother who abandoned him manages to turn her life around and gain at least a smidgen of our respect.

There are struggles and lessons to be learned, not the least of which that 'happily ever after' does not mean what all the fairy-tales claim. Reality is much more complicated, but all the more rewarding because of it.

Title: Point of Maximal Impulse
Author: Smirkdoctor
Pairing: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Length: 15,517 words
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: None
Verse: BBC
Author's summary: Today was the first standardized patient interaction, and John was nervous, and very nearly late. He knew it was silly, but the act of finally introducing himself as “Doctor Watson”, of laying hands on another living, breathing human aside from his learning partner for physical exam maneuvers...in a medical capacity...well, it felt huge. He took one last deep breath and rapped three times on the door of exam room 221-B, listening for acknowledgement from the patient within. “Oh, do come in,” drawled the richest baritone voice John had ever heard.

Reccer's comments: Anatomy lessons have never been put to better use. Most medical realism/kink fics I have seen are angsty and/or dark, but this is a fun romantic comedy of ophthalmoscopes, dissections, physical exams, dirty mnemonics, and more Latin terms for body parts than you can shake a stick at. A med school AU that doubles as a Six Thatchers pastiche chock full of canon references, flirting, and insane wish fulfillment.

As a side note, if you are easily grossed out, I would recommend downloading the fic to read rather than viewing it on-site, as a few of the embedded end-of-chapter images are anatomically graphic (a dissected human heart, the inside of an eyeball, and cutaway diagrams of veins and nerves).

Title:Through The Clouds
Author: mazarin221b
Pairing: Johnlock
Length:20,004
Rating:Explicit
Warnings: None
Verse: Sherlock BBC
Author's summary:Sherlock takes a remarkably early retirement at 47, and convinces John that a change of pace would do them both good. They buy an old cottage on the South Downs, and exchange their nonstop life in Baker Street for quiet contemplation, bee studies, and book writing.

They might go completely insane, but sometimes it takes stepping outside of the life you're living to find the life you want.


Reccer's comments:I have such a thing for retirement stories, they melt me into such happy goo. This one is warm and so charming. This was gorgeous from start to finish, it made me all warm and fuzzy inside. This fic was like a warm fuzzy blanket wrapped around me. :)))))

I adored the lovely imagery the bathtub scene and bees(Sherlock must retire with bees) were delightful. Also the slow burn between them she captured the ache of finally requited passion.

Here is a small excerpt....Sherlock takes one last look out to the horizon, mouth downturned and brow furrowed, before seeming to shake himself and catching up to John with a few long-legged strides. John turns back toward the path cut into the cliffs, climbing steadily toward the rolling downs already green and lush in the weak April warmth.

They reach the top and Sherlock strikes toward the west, back to where their hired Land Rover sits a mile away in a public carpark. John falls into step beside him and takes a deep breath.



“I expected a case,” he starts. “A bit chilly for a walk, really, so. D’you mind telling me what we’re doing out here?”
Sherlock doesn’t even pause, simply tucks his head down against the wind and continues walking.

“I’m retiring,” he says simply.

Verse: BBC
Author's summary: Halloween, 1989: John and Sherlock both have big plans for the night, but some serial killers have the worst possible timing.

Reccer's comments: I went into this thinking, okay, a fun little Halloween story. Then BAM! i got hit hard in the feels. First off there's the case, which is a fabulous tongue-in-cheek romp through the 80s that leaves bodies galore in its wake. Then there's all the fun of dressing up for Halloween in sexy, subtext-laden costumes. But finally (most importantly), of course, there are John and Sherlock pining desperately for each other until they finally get a clue, and it’s at that point that the fic takes off from being a good-natured dashabout and becomes something of real substance and beauty. This is one of those stories that you think is just going to be a quick distraction, but ends up sneaking into your heart and settling there.

Pairing: John/Sherlock
Length:17,771
Rating:Explicit
Warnings: None
Verse: Sherlock BBC
Author's summary:John starts writing gay romance while holed up in hospital. Sherlock reads the first fic on accident, and it sticks with him for days. He can't help but read more from the unknown writer. Little does he know, the writer isn't exactly unknown to him. The writer happens to be the A&E Doctor he's feuding with.

Christ, can you imagine what he'll think once he finds out?

Reccer's comments:This was an absolute delight from start to finish. They way she wrote both John and Sherlock was just brilliant. I adore John as a Doctor that uses his free time to write slash fanfic how fun. And she wrote a Sherlock that was secure about so many things, yet so insecure about anything to do with feelings or love.

I thoroughly enjoyed this fluffy, silly, angsty, happily ending wonderful AU......His screen name, DoctorJohn, always made him cringe, but it had been all he could think of at the time. He was comfortable telling himself it was the pain medication that took away all his sense of decency, and had decided to be happy that he hadn't gone with DoctorLove. That had unfortunately been an actual option he'd filtered past.

Since he didn't have the Internet, he was able to write in the notepad app without his moniker staring down at him the whole time, which helped. He already had a premise in mind; the lonely doctor. Cliché, yes, but he'd found that in this type of writing it was less about whether something was a cliché or not, and more about whether you could make it palpable. Your character could bugger the delivery boy as long as your readers wanted to know who came first, and where.

His lonely doctor ended up sitting in a coffee shop flirting with a nurse.

At the beginning of all this, when he'd started writing his own fics, he wondered if he always fashioned the main character after himself. When he realised that, yes, he did, he wondered if that mattered. He hated wondering on that alone. He wanted to have a place other than the comments section where he could talk to other writers, a place less public.


You should read or re read this wonderful story, you will be happy you did.

Verse: Sherlock BBC
Author's summary:John Watson, the new Earl of Saughton, is madly in love with the beautiful Mary Morstan. But he has returned from the Peninsular War to find his family on the brink of ruin and his ancestral home mortgaged to the hilt. He has little choice when he is introduced to Mycroft Holmes, a civil servant of apparently unlimited wealth and no social ambitions for himself - but with his eyes firmly fixed on a suitable match for his only brother, the unorthodox and irascible Omega Sherlock Holmes. Can John forget the woman he loved and find happiness with a man so very different from his lost love?
Reccer's comments:This story was amazing from start to finish. She did a lot of research into that time period and you could tell. I found her characters engaging just brilliant. She has such a way with words...This story was a delight and such a fun ride. I will want to come back and re read this gem over again. So many lines were perfect I loved this one of so many..... Sherlock had lifted his head and there was an amused look on his face as he stared at his husband. "John, I am quite aware that you are a good and moral man, and that your words and thoughts on that matter are genuine. You are my moral compass, a fixed point in a changing age."


Her Sherlock is amazing and a little bit reckless but her John's such a gentleman and caring doctor, until the need to deliver a brutal beat down arises. :))))))))) They make the best team together as always.

Author's summary:AU set after WWI in 1922. John is adrift in a loveless marriage. He takes a holiday to the country and meets a difficult patient. The spark that ignites between them might relight John's life or burn it to the ground.
Reccer's comments:This story was stunning and brilliant through out until the ending. What a glorious time period this was and it flowed beautifully. She had such a way with words, the flow of the story was perfect. This story was exquisite and all the little details made it come to life.

This fic was a delicious slow burn and I do looooooove those. All the secondary characters were lovely. Mrs. Hudson was the sweetest.

One of my favorite moments well one of so many is the turning point in chapter 9: "They watch each other closely, the scared doctor and the quiet detective. John's hand hovers between them, paused in indecision like his brain. Sherlock, eyes still locked with John's, reaches up to encircle John's wrist, slow and careful. His fingers are warm against John's pulse point and the contact soothes him more than he thinks it has any right to. “John.” John makes a quiet noise in the back of his throat, almost a question. “Mm?” “Let's go home.”

*happy sighs* If you have never read this you should you will love it soooooooo much.

Author: songlin
Pairing: John/Sherlock
Length: 5,444 total
Rating: PG/T, verging on G
Warnings: Nah, unless you're seriously arachnophobic, and then only for House Rules
Verse: BBC Sherlock
Author's summary: There is none for the series as a whole.
House Rules: In which it is explained, via text messages and notes, exactly why John Watson has to put his foot down when it comes to the refrigerator and what is kept in it. Also: camel spiders, and why they are the physical manifestations of fear.
On Holiday: In which the happy couple takes a vacation to sunny Spain. Thank God for those funny little cards that make mobiles work abroad.
A Curious Incident: In which Sherlock has to see a man about a dog.
Where the Lovelight Gleams: They say you get to missing the people you've lost around the holidays.

Reccer's comments: The first three parts of this series provide some of the most sheerly hilarious Sherlock-and-John interactions I've ever read. Oh, the shoutiness and the carping and the complaining and the threats and the mutual adoration! The fourth is set post-Reichenbach. I've tagged for humor on account of the first three parts; the last changes mood starkly (but bear in mind your reccer requires happy endings).

Excerpt (brief, but surely sufficient to lure you):
"I know roughly 42 ways to kill you with my bare hands, I am armed, I literally know where you sleep and I spend a lot of time with my teeth in close proximity to your cock. Do not test me, Sherlock Holmes. John"
