Okay, I give up. Sherlock recs? Please? With sugar on top? I feel like a goddamn junkie and left to my own devices, I'll hit the kink meme first and that can't end well. I mean, literally--there might be crying.

Pleeeasseeee? I need this. I've been editing and beta'ing AIRPS fic all day.

Light Our Own Fires by [personal profile] blackeyedgirl. Set post-The Great Game, and my new favourite Sherlock fic. It gets right to the heart of the characters, and is beautifully written on top of that.

I haven't read much Sherlock yet, but if you haven't watched it already I recommend having a look at the 'unaired' pilot version of Ep1 if you can get hold of it. It's amazing how slight differences in style and interpretation can change aspects of a show. I actually slightly prefer the unaired version, although that doesn't detract from my appreciation of the final versions.

The following link may assist - there's only a couple of Sherlock recs on Ruric's journal currently, but as she was the one whose recs got me into Merlin, I suspect they'll be excellent reads and I suspect there may be more to come. http://ruric.dreamwidth.org/tag/recs:+fiction+-+sherlock

The recced fics aren't always the most technically brilliant, but they are a lot of fun and a great place to start.

This went up just a bit ago, and it doesn't look like anybody's rec'd it to you yet. It's both Victorian!Holmes/Watson and Modern!John/Sherlock -- if that's not a problem for you, here's the link:

Hey girl hey! Thanks for rec'ing my fic! I was just trawling the internets looking for good ones I'd yet to read, and totally clicked this without knowing it was a link to something I'd written! That kinda made my day.

I don't have recs because I'm too much in the haze of reading everything posted EVAR, but I was going through the prompts/fills at the sherlockbbc_fic LJ comm, and found a Great Mouse Detective/Sherlock crossover WITH a vid. AUGH SO MUCH AWESOME:

Geez, I am a bad friendslisterfriend. See, I have nothing to rec, and the only thing that got me excited about your post was your account of your activities today.

Hope you find something good to read (and enough time to finish betaing and editing). :P

2010-09-05 10:26 pm (UTC)
*grins* I'll try to finish the beta tonight so the author can post today or tomrrow. The fic? Incendiary.

Editing my fic is going a lot slower. *sighs*

I'm still waiting to see the BBC series, but I've been gobbling up fic for the movie like crack-rock candy.

I found a couple of decent recs lists, and a huge Delicious collection:

Terra Lily's recs list: http://terra-lilly.livejournal.com/11574.html?style=mine

Butting in to say: ... About that. I seem to have some two weeks of miraculous free time coming up after this week, and I am in possession of the sum total of Sherlock. There could be an actual fangirl weekend, is what I'm saying. Possibly with equids on the side. *whistles innocently*

Laws of thermodynamics series (http://community.livejournal.com/libraryofsol/tag/series:%20thermodynamics) by [livejournal.com profile] entangled_now is one of my favorite things I've read in this fandom. Actually anything she writes in sherlock is fucking amazing.

I made a rec list (http://verizonhorizon.livejournal.com/102605.html#cutid1) post that's primarily fluff, with exceptions that have all been covered in above lines. One author my rec list has that many don't because she hasn't been posting to comm's is garryowen@dreamwidth - great stuff!

And if you want to cannonball into the fandom, I had a request from someone to upload my collection (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=SRSM0T3E). It's almost 500 stories/13MB of unorganized, varied pairing (no incest and very little Sherlock/Moriarty) fic in flavors ranging from gen to slash to squint. There's dark!fic, deathfic and the occasional non-con tossed in for variety. And a few WIPs, which are marked.

If you don't send me feedback, I will sob uncontrollably for hours on end, until finally, in a fit of depression, I slash my wrists and bleed out on the bathroom floor. My death will be on your heads. Murderers.

That's why he goes bad, you know -- all the good people hit him on the head or try to shoot him and constantly mistrust him, while there's this vast cohort of minions saying, We wouldn't hurt you, Lex, and we'll give you power and greatness and oh so much sex...

Wow. That was scary. Lex is like Jesus in the desert.
--pricklyelf on why Lex goes bad

Obi-Wan has a sort of desperate, pathetic patience in this movie. You can just see it in his eyes: "My padawan is a psychopath, and no one will believe me; I'm barely keeping him under control and expect to wake up any night now to find him standing over my bed with a knife!"

Beth: god, why do i have so many beads?

You know, if obi-wan had just disciplined the boy *properly* we wouldn't be having these problems. Can't you just see yoda? "Take him in hand, you must. The true Force, you must show him."

Aside from the fact that one person should never go near another with a penis, a bottle of body wash, and a hopeful expression...
--LJ, Summerfling, on shower sex, 7/22/2005

It's weird, after you get used to the affection you get from a rabbit, it's like any other BDSM relationship. Only without the sex and hot chicks in leather corsets wielding floggers. You'll grow to like it.
--LJ, revelininsanity, on my relationship with my rabbit, 2/7/2006

Smudged upon the near horizon, lapine shadows in the mist. Like a doomsday vision from Watership Down, the bunny intervention approaches.
--LJ, cpt_untouchable, on my addition of The Fourth Bunny, 4/13/2006

Rule 3. Chemistry is kind of like bondage. Some people like it, some people like reading about or watching other people doing it, and a large number of people's reaction to actually doing the serious stuff is to recoil in horror.
--LJ, deadlychameleon, on class, 9/1/2007

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Fan Fiction is John Cusack standing outside your house with a boombox.
