Verse: Sherlock BBC

Author's summary: London is possessive; Sherlock's just frustrated. (Alternatively, five times London cockblocked Sherlock Holmes and one time it didn’t.)

Reccer's comments: This is the perfect Sherlock/London fic. It consists of five sharply polished vignettes, each of which tells the story of a near-miss encounter between Sherlock and a different character, and one gorgeous epilogue where he finally gets lucky. It's funny, hot, weird and achingly tense.

Raz stares at his fever-bright eyes before Sherlock’s mouth crashes into his; there’s the taste of smoke and teeth catching at his lips, and when Raz pulls away to breathe Sherlock makes a low, disappointed noise in his throat.

“All right,” Raz says thoughtfully, unlocking the door. “But no fucking.”

“What, then?” Sherlock demands, even as he’s crowding inside.

“Something better,” Raz says.

(Full disclosure: I was one of the beta-readers for this story, although I didn't contribute much more than 'yes this is excellent'.)
