Title: Pull
Author: [ profile] philalethia
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: E
Warnings: Past drug use
Verse: Sherlock BBC
Author's summary: John pulls Sherlock's hair in a moment of frustration. Sherlock is surprised to find that he enjoys it.
Reccer's comments: Philalethia’s works are unilaterally three things: kinky, scorchingly hot, and magnificently in character. Time and again Philalethia tackles kinks that I swear were once on my never-ever-in-a-million-years-would-I-read-that-kink list. Pull covers one of the tamer kinks on that list, hair pulling (woot! one I can rec without personal embarrassment!). It begins with Sherlock’s heightened arousal when John pulls his hair. His curiosity is sparked, and we all know what happens with a determined, curious Sherlock. What follows is divine, and the culmination is infinitely satisfying.

Title: Holocene Park
Author: sanguinity
Pairing: Gen
Length: 24,827
Rating: Teen and Up
Warnings: None
Verse: Elementary
Author's summary: “It’s fifteen feet tall, got claws as long as my hand, and teeth.” Trina’s expression dared Joan to contradict her.
Joan eyed the length of tooth Trina was indicating. “All right,” she said. “Tell me everything you know."
Reccer's comments: First things: this story was written for me, so I’m a bit biased about it. That being said, even if it weren’t for me, it’s brilliant. While technically a crossover between the terrible, terrible Asylum film (simply titled “Sherlock Holmes,” though most of us just call it “the one with the dinosaurs”) this fic manages to transcend it’s awful painful crossover and take highly ridiculous subject matter and make it into a delightful romp. This is case!fic at it’s finest, with a strong relationship between Holmes and Watson, a look into Joan’s past, and lots of secondary characters to help keep things interesting. Trust me, this fic is not worth missing. It will be a classic in the Elementary fandom for sure. Additional warnings for past intimate partner abuse, mild gore, and animal harm.

Title: The Steep Part of the Wind
Author: hophophop (amindamazed)
Pairing: Gen
Length: 2,371
Rating: Teen and Up
Warnings: None
Verse: Elementary
Author's summary: It’s been a scant twenty minutes since the airport shuttle dropped him off, twenty hours since he was cleared to leave Switzerland, twenty days since they determined this was the path they’d take. And yet he can’t formulate how long it’s been since he slept; he’s not sure what day it is. No matter; he feels every second from the moment Watson walked alone into the park etched into his cells.
"I was hoping to talk to my daughter."
Reccer's comments: A popular story for Elementary fanfic writers to tell is the reverse Reichenbach story: what if it was Watson who was Reichenbached, rather than Holmes? While many stories explore that, very few deal with some of the logical aftermath; most importantly, what do they tell Joan’s mother? This story tackles that question, and in such a way that it makes you hurt. Beautifully written, with raw emotion, this will make you ache for Sherlock, Mary Watson, and of course, Joan, who will have to deal with the fallout someday.

Title: Heavy Blows
Author: apidologist
Pairing: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Length: 2,293
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: None
Verse: New Russian Holmes
Author's summary: Holmes is especially obnoxious, even more so than usual, and Watson can see no alternative but to teach him a lesson. He suggests the only reasonable solution to Holmes' orneriness: a boxing match. Things get heated. What more can I say.
Reccer's comments: A short but satisfying story very much in the lines of the New Russian series: there is boxing, arguments, and then smut. I don’t have much to say about this one, but it really manages to make clear that this is the New Russian Holmes ‘verse, and it’s quite enjoyable.

Title: Day One: Umoja
Author: gardnerhill
Pairing: Gen
Length: 443
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: None
Verse: Watson and Holmes (comic)
Author's summary: They remember that day and each other. They just remember it differently.
Reccer's comments: There isn’t much fic for the brilliant comic book series “Watson and Holmes” but this one is a good one. While incredibly short, it manages to capture the humour and rapport between Holmes and Watson while also discussing a very serious topic: what it means to be a black man at the crime scene.
