Will wonders never cease! I finally found an S/J fic with a definitely sociopathic Sherlock that I thoroughly enjoyed. It's creepy in a good way.

Stolen Moments. Not terribly surprisingly, it's by [ profile] velvet_mace, the same author whose Collared WIP is an amazing helping of fucked-up angst, with forced-to-be-cruel!Sherlock and probably-going-to-be-broken!John, both at the mercy of utter-bastard!Mycroft. (And if you like that one, while it's currently up to Chapter 3 on [ profile] velvet_mace's LJ, there's a lot more in first draft form on the kink meme; follow the link labeled "Prompt" in the intro to Chapter 1.)

But back to Stolen Moments. It's in Sherlock's POV, and I don't think I'm spoiling anything if I say it involves hypnosis!rape. I am tempted to call it a 5 on the Sociopathy Scale, but I think that's due to my bias toward awarding 6's only to fics I don't like. Certainly this Sherlock has zero conscience, feeling regrets only for the possibility that he's basically broken his toy. And he does need to construct external constraints in order to change his behavior; he's not able to do so via willpower alone. So I'll go ahead and give it a 6.

I was keeping an eye out for an S/J fic that would ring up a "6" (the top score) on my improvised sociopathy-scale. Found one.

(Parenthetically, I note that this one seems to have been composed before the anon author saw episode 3. Figures. I have a theory about the effect of ep 2 on fic.)

I am not, technically, recommending this fic except to those interested in exploring the whole sociopathy angle. It turned my stomach, and I'm going to spend the rest of the evening reading out-of-character fluff. Also, since I'm posting this publicly, let me slap a trigger warning for rape and stalking onto this thing.

Nevertheless, it is extremely well-written from every angle, so kudos anon author! An Experiment, Of Sorts
