Title: The Reverse Side of Fascination
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Characters/Pairings: Harry Watson, Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, pre-Sherlock/John
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 5,175
Disclaimer: This is a transformative work of the BBC’s Sherlock, which itself is a transformative work. Fun, not profit!
Warnings: Alcoholism, somewhat creepy tattoos
Notes: Originally wrote this over a year ago, got distracted by robots, didn't finish it, have now decided it's done. Gotta post it before Harry shows up in canon and it gets jossed. :P Title from this Schopenhauer quote: “Boredom is just the reverse side of fascination: both depend on being outside rather than inside a situation, and one leads to the other.” Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] call_me_ishmael for the beta.
Summary: Harry Watson is used to not knowing why she does things. Inviting Sherlock Holmes out to lunch is still one of her more baffling whims, but it's also one of her best.



She doesn't normally answer calls from withheld phone numbers.... )

Title: This Machine Called Man
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock&John, ensemble
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 29,000
Disclaimer: This is a transformative work of the BBC’s Sherlock, which itself is a transformative work. Fun, not profit!
Warnings: canon-typical violence, gore, and bad decisions; brief discussion of hypothetical cannibalism, sex bots
Notes: Originally written and posted on the [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc_fic kinkmeme, there titled Identification. Massively edited and expanded for [livejournal.com profile] robotbigbang. It will have two sequels, and if you read the fic on the meme you’re going to want to reread before you read the sequels. Thanks to beta [livejournal.com profile] miss_sabre and britpicker [livejournal.com profile] rhuia, and to co-brainer, enabler, ninja-artist, and beta [livejournal.com profile] call_me_ishmael. Further notes, including abundant thanks, are to be found in the author’s notes.
Summary: London, 2081. John Watson, former army roboticist, has an expired licence and an illegal tri-wing screwdriver in his desk. Sherlock Holmes has fingerprints and a name, and in an office somewhere in Whitehall there are blueprints for the metal underneath his perfect, artificial skin.

Chapters: One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven

Title: Folding, Unfolding, Refolding
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Characters/Pairings: Molly, Sherlock/John, Mrs. Hudson
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 3,965
Disclaimer: I don’t own Sherlock or get any money out of this endeavour.
Warnings: Some autopsy detail, discussion of death, grief, spoilers for Reichenbach.
Notes: ASiB made me want to write Molly. Reichenbach made me need to write Molly. Also I shamelessly sent my characters to a city I already know so I wouldn’t have to research it. Beta by [livejournal.com profile] miss_sabre.
Summary: Molly feels different, afterwards. She feels like she’s lost something, some part of herself that was capable of having a crush on Sherlock that, though pathetic, was at least honest and simple.


It is Molly Hooper’s job... )

Title: History Is What You’ve Travelled On
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock/John
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 1,275
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters or make money off them.
Warnings: Post-Reichenbach (no spoilers for S2), suggestion of torture and related injuries
Notes: I guess I had to write one last pre-series two fic. Beta credit to [livejournal.com profile] miss_sabre, title from the poem by Michael Ondaatje.
Summary: John always has to remind himself that Sherlock has done things in the last three years that John still knows nothing about.



It's like time has been reset.... )

Title: At Your Finger Ends
Fandoms: Sherlock BBC, Oxford time travel novels by Connie Willis
Characters/Pairings: (gen) John, Sherlock, Mike Stamford, Sally Donovan, Mycroft
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 7,500
Disclaimer: I don't own Sherlock, and I don't own all the dialogue shamelessly lifted from A Study in Pink, and I make no money off of any of this.
Warnings: Canon violence (nothing that wasn’t in A Study in Pink)
Notes: See the end for some notes re: AU, possible sequel, and the title. Beta by [livejournal.com profile] miss_sabre .
Summary: John has always wanted to be a historian. He was born in 2020, so he grew up hearing about developments in time travel technology and theory. For John, history is mostly about the adventure. Fusionfic with Connie Willis’s Oxford University time travel novels (Doomsday Book, To Say Nothing of the Dog, etc.), which you don’t need to have read to understand this. John is a time traveller from Oxford 2059 who gets stuck in London in 2009.

Fandom/Ships: BBC Sherlock, Sherlock/John
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 10,400
Disclaimer: I don't own Sherlock and this won't pay my bills.
Warnings: None
Summary: Sherlock texts, Sherlock leaves notes, Sherlock phones John, and he never really says anything.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] cathedralcarver  for [livejournal.com profile] holmestice . All the beta credit to the best beta that ever beta’d, [livejournal.com profile] miss_sabre . Also, this fit in one post originally but for some reason it says it's too large here. Sigh. Part one is here.
