Riptide: You charmer you.
Drank the Sherlock Kool-Aid this weekend and thoroughly enjoyed episode 1, "Study in Pink". Mycroft is perfectly unctuous and slithery, but more than that, I loved that bit at the end where Watson is waiting patiently, just outside the police-line, with a wee mousey look, all, JUST IN CASE YOU NEED ANYTHING, YOU KNOW, I'LL JUST BE, UM, HERE, FOR ETERNITY.

Married in the first episode.

Feel free to fling slashy fic in my direction. :)

It's such a delicious show. I love it so much! I've only watched the first four but I've been thinking about it quite a bit since. <3 Watson so much.

I'm trying to move ahead with other eps in S1, but am hampered by the fact that J appears to want to watch the show as well...

I was so happy that G loved the show, too! He keeps reminding me that we need to catch up. <3

Gatiss et al have done an amazing job with this series. As far as fic goes, there's so much of it now that I don't read any without a rec. I'll be watching this post to see which stories people have enjoyed most.

Gatiss is so puzzling to me, because he's a great actor (loved League of Gentlemen!) and I love the things he writes for the screen (this, Agatha Christie's Poirot), but then I couldn't get into his novel at all. Hm...

And another sucked in by this show...

Recs... hmm. The first one that comes to mind is Two Two One Bravo Baker by abundantlyqueer. It's an absolutely gorgeous AU. Let me find a summary: Captain John Watson of 40 Commando, the Royal Marines, is assigned to protect and assist Sherlock Holmes as he investigates what appears to be a simple war atrocity in Afghanistan. An intense attraction ignites between the two men as they uncover a conspiracy that threatens everything they’ve ever known, but Sherlock is as much hunted as hunter, and everyone close to him is in deadly danger. Can he solve the case in time to save himself and John? (This one also includes some seriously gorgeous fanart.)

As for the rest of my bookmarks - apart from even more AUs, most of it features stuff you can't read yet unless you don't mind massive spoilers for EVERYTHING.

Hm! Usually I am pro-spoiler all the time, but I'm actually glad I hadn't been spoiled for the ep I watched this weekend. Can I get by on more fics if I can zip my way through the rest of S1? Or are all the spoilers for S2, end of, which I have heard of as a sort of chorus of lamentations across the internet?

Okay, so I went through my bookmarks and I think I've picked all the ones without spoilers. (But check the headers/info anyway in case I missed some, okay?)

The Dealt Hand by solsticezero
Gen. A fourth episode, beginning where the third ended. In which Sherlock and John play the cards dealt to them; featuring running, puzzles, running, a card game analogy, and more running.

A Study in Sherlock by bendingsignpost
Gen, BAMF!John. Standing firm and unaided, John touches his sister's mobile in his pocket. He looks up at the windows of 221b Baker Street and thinks, Oh, what the hell. He climbs into the cab.

The Love Song of Two Idiots by mirrorskippy & ladyflowdi
John/Sherlock. The eighth time Sherlock proposed to John, it was on a Thursday afternoon in the middle of a Tesco. And like the seven times before, he got rejected.

The Plan by blind_author
John/Sherlock. John had a plan, and its name was Get Some Sex. And the capitals were most certainly necessary.

Five Ways John and Sherlock Didn't Actually Get Together, Plus One Way They Did by winter_hermit
John/Sherlock. Five (silly) ways John and Sherlock didn’t actually get together, plus one way they did.

Faerie-Touched by blind_author
John/Sherlock, AU. In a world of sorcerers and magic, Sherlock is a Faerie-born and John, lacking any kind of magical talent, often seems a bit out of place. But he has a gift all his own...

But Love Is A Voice On The Wind by snowishness
John/Sherlock. Sherlock keeps getting texts from Mycroft with tips on wooing John. Sherlock resents this (I don't need your HELP, Mycroft), but does them anyway.

Learning Curve by queerlyobscure
John/Sherlock. John is brilliant, sometimes. Sherlock appreciates it.

Tuesday Morning by moony
John/Sherlock. It may be the worst Tuesday imaginable. Also, brains.

any amount of sense (or: five times people thought john and sherlock were dating, and one time they didn’t.) by preromantics
John/Sherlock. Wherein John and Sherlock have been dating for a long time, almost as long as it takes to figure out that they are.

Reasoning by b_c_draygon
Sherlock/Various; John/Sherlock. Five times Sherlock engaged in sexual activity because of a logical reason – and one time he couldn't find a reason, and didn't need one.

A Mile in His Shoes by mamfidd
John/Sherlock; bodyswap. John and Sherlock switch bodies.

If they loved John and Sherlock like we love John and Sherlock - two parodies. by warriorbot
Sherlock/Jeeves & Wooster crossover; John/Sherlock. It was in the Bow Street police station on boat-race night that I ran into old Lockie Holmes again. I'd been pinched for making off with a policeman's helmet and he was chatting rather intently to one of the constabulary.--> Truly delightful.

And more:


The Second Law of Thermodynamics (& sequels) by entangled_now (series tag)
John/Sherlock. In which there's no heating and there's a dead owl in Sherlock's bed.

Impropriety Be Damned by ptelefolone
John/Sherlock. For the prompt "Having sex on the floor of John's room while Mrs. Hudson and Mycroft are downstairs". --> Hot and funny.

This Is Not America by lei_che_sogna
John/Sherlock. Nobody had to write it, but I did and here it is. [--> Wonderful crack fic. Absolutely hilarious.]

that thing you like by misspamela
John/Sherlock. "Happy Christmas, etc. etc."

Beethoven's Two Romances by pixieblues
John/Sherlock. As John has become Sherlock's gun, Sherlock is becoming John's violin.

Delayed Reaction by cj_ludd18
John/Sherlock. In which John Watson suffers under the delusion that he's only gay after that third vodka martini, and is proven wrong in the best way possible. (i. e. sex.)

Perspective by irisbleufic
John/Sherlock. When circumstances shift, so does your outlook.

House Rules by riandarcy
John/Sherlock. It occurs to John one morning, as he's moving a thumb out of the microwave and into the refrigerator, that perhaps the time has come for a serious discussion about house rules.

Five Things Sherlock Will Never Admit Out Loud by raina_at
John/Sherlock. See title.

And you might want to check this rec list: http://sherlockxjohnrecs.tumblr.com/recs The descriptions are relatively short, so make sure you double-check for spoilers and whatnot.

The end of season 2... yeah. Even if you vaguely know what's up, I'd avoid spoilers anyway. It's so much more fun if you don't know in detail what's going to happen.

If you know Sherlock Holmes canon at all...I'd think it would be pretty hard for you to be 'spoiled' by most fic. *G*

You can check out what I have booked marked at delicious.com if you like. It's tagged tv:sherlock and you can find it here https://delicious.com/chant4me (I do read mycroft/lestrade as well as john/sherlock)

A couple of fun ones (Summaries are mine):

"Hitting the Water at Sixty Miles an Hour"
http://archiveofourown.org/works/820938/chapters/1555212

It's Mummy Holmes's birthday but Sherlock is being quite recalcitrant about attending. It seems that there is something about their relationship that Sherlock has neglected to tell John...like the fact that his mother thinks they are having one.

"What Meets the Eye"
http://archiveofourown.org/works/347350

When a blow to the head causes Sherlock to lose his memory he decides to keep it to himself. It's simple really, he can deduce his relationship to other people with ease. The only one that is a true puzzle is John Watson. John, who brings him tea and fusses over him and does all the little things that make his life easier. John, who takes care of him and worries over him and....John, who MUST be his husband.

"Limpet"
http://archiveofourown.org/works/249925

John's reaction to Sherlock's constant touching. (A bit of silly fluff with unexpected clinginess. *g*)

Yeah, I'm fairly sure I can piece together the end of S2, what with having read the books and having sat here watching various people on lj weeping and rending their garments. I feel prepared. But I still like to watch things in order :D

Thank you for sharing your links! They're lovely! Limpet especially !

C'MON IN THE KOOL-AID'S FINE

It looks like you've got recs to keep you busy (and I'm so coming back to check some of them out myself *g*), but if you're jonesing for more, I have haphazardly bookmarked some on my AO3. Careful of spoilers though.

If you're interested in podfic recs, let me know :)
