Unexpectedly found myself reading the wrong sort of fic. Discovered that het!John, especially if homophobic, is played in my head by Simon Pegg.

(Hey, it helps keep them straight, pun not intended. This is not my John.)

I'm contemplating starting a list of bad lines in fanfic. The one I'm thinking of right now is "Suddenly, his hands seemed to be everywhere." The image is... not what the author intended. (It doesn't help that it's a remarkably silly fic to begin with. Definitely not a contender for the Fic Find.)

This isn't a mindblowing sex fic... ok, only in parts... it's more of a very well-written novella. Guessing on the actual length/word count, but it kind of feels like the novella entries for the Hugo that were available online before Worldcon, only with less aliens and time travel.

The Whore of Babylon Was a Perfectly Nice Girl, by out_there. Under what circumstances has completely in-character Sherlock slept with half of London? Find out!

(There was another fic, Make Whole What Has Been Smashed by [ profile] gigantic that was sort of time travel, or actually Merlin-style living-backwards, which was charming but not the Fic Find of the night.)
airynothing: (find)
Every other evening or so I go trawling for Sherlock fic. I keep reading until I hit the jackpot. (The alternate evenings I am still stuck on whatever I just found...)

Tonight: breathlessly good. I've been avoiding anything where they're writing the characters into standard kinkplay with all the trappings, because dull. Kink should arise effortlessly from the characters' pretty little twisted minds ([ profile] wordstrings! Paradox series!), not be all heavy-handed and S&M club.

This is different, it's perfect. Transport, by [ profile] thisprettywren. I like the pun in the title. I just read it three times without stopping, and I'm resisting going back right now. Looks like I'm going to have to check her other works too...

Finds from two nights ago: a trio of stories (two related, one different) by [ profile] the_arc5: Here, our minutes grow hours and Until the second hand stops, a pair of fics with adrenalinejunkie!S&J, and a very different, more subdued take on broken!Sherlock in All that I have. John in this one is my 2nd favorite version, altered-boundaries!John, but not as intensely so as in Paradox. (I was calling this version of John no-boundaries!John, but the boundaries are there, just... not anywhere near where you'd expect them to be.)

Previous find: a cache of Study in Emerald crossover. Basically, BBC Sherlock and John in versions of Neil Gaiman's take on Victorian Holmes and Watson in Lovecraft's universe. The Queen's Guard by [ profile] lavvyan, Brightly Burning, Never Look Back by [ profile] thedeadparrot, Memories and Possibilities (in increasing order of goodness).

Previous find: Apotheosis, by mad_maudlin. My favorite BAMF!John story. Actually, anything where they use "assassin" and "John" in the same sentence is good.

Previous find: recollection is getting a bit blurry, but there was definitely some Two Two One Bravo Baker by abundantlyqueer in there (WIP).

First finds: [ profile] irisbleufic's stuff, and the aforementioned Paradox series, the latter of which I found by putting "dark" in my google string, and which is the hands-down best sociopathic!Sherlock (and altered-boundaries!John) ever.

This took a lot longer than I expected. Must have something to do with all the re-reading...
