Title: Vespers
Author: peevee
Pairing: fem!Sherlock/fem!John
Length: 2,805 words
Rating: E
Warnings: underage
Verse: Sherlock BBC
Author's summary: Sherlock reads Sappho, and Joanne listens to bats.

Everything was quiet. Sherlock let her eyes drift shut, let her breathing slow. Joanne shuffled close to her and tangled their fingers together, gazing up into the leaf-shadowed sky. Sherlock’s skin felt electrified where they touched.

Reccer's comments: As always, anything and everything peevee has ever written will turn me to mush. But this little ficlet is one of her works that is most dear to me. Teenage Sherlock and Joanne go out camping together. The tension between them is so thick in this piece you can almost taste it, and the way they discover each other is so true of teenage exploration and so full of insecurity, tenderness and affection it makes me want to cry. I also love the tiny little cameo Mycroft has and the way we get a little bit of insight into Sherlock's life as a young girl. And of course, the biggest selling point is peevee's glorious, lush, beautiful language. Porn and beauty. Never mutually exclusive when it comes to peevee.

Title:Sink Like a Stone
Author: pennydreadful
Pairing: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Length: 5000
Rating: Teen
Warnings: Character Death
Verse: Sherlock BBC
Author's summary: After defeating Moriarty at the pool, life isn't quite the same around 221B Baker Street...it's more peaceful. And stranger.

Reccer's comments: A bit of an oldie, but still thoroughly enjoyable. It's a wonderful subdued, slightly surreal fic the first time through, but I think it packs even more of a punch on a second read through.
