So I thought it was about time I made a Master List of my fan fiction. It's gotten to the point where there's stuff that I forgot I wrote! :p (Although most of it was probably pretty forgettable.) Anyway, for those looking for something special, ch-ch-ch-check out the Big List o' Fic after the cut!

The second edition of my Great Sherlock Fanfiction Quiz is now live!

CLICK HERE TO ENTER

50 questions about popular Johnlock fics that will test the limits of your fic knowledge and beyond - authors, summaries, AU’s, crossovers, genres, and kinks galore!

There is no registration required. You will be asked to enter a name before the quiz starts, but you can put anything you want. Take as long as you like to complete it, there is no time limit. You will get a certificate at the end with your results that you can save and print out or post on your own blog.

The quiz may contain spoilers for some of the fics and may not be appropriate for under 18′s. And remember: this is just for fun!

The 8th installment of my underrated Sherlock fic series comes at a time of sweeping changes in the series, in the fandom, and in social media platforms. *mourns LJ* Throughout it all, I continue to be impressed and amazed at the high quality of the creative effort put forth by fans. Including those who are less popular for whatever reason, whether lack of exposure, unlucky timing, subject matter, or readers just not being willing to give a new writer a chance. But if you feel like you've read everything and are still on the lookout for more excellent tales of Johnlock, I hope you'll find something here that clicks with you. And please leave kudos for the authors if you like their work!

Previous installments:
Part One from October 2013
Part Two from May 2014
Part Three from November 2014
Part Four from May 2015
Part Five from November 2015
Part Six from May 2016
Part Seven from November 2016

My qualifications for this list are:

- Fic complete
- Last chapter posted prior to April 1, 2017
- Fewer than 200 kudos as of this posting
- Earned a 'favorite' from me on AO3

Summary: It was so nice to see they'd finally got things sorted. After all they'd been through, they deserved to be happy. (Or: Five times people imagined what John and Sherlock get up to in the bedroom, and one time we see what they really get up to.)

Notes: This was originally written in 24 hours for the [livejournal.com profile] come_at_once challenge using the prompt "That's what you think". I had to stop writing at 2 a.m. so I wasn't quite satisfied with the ending, and rewrote it afterwards. The first version, "Alternate Facts", is here.

2016 may go down as a terrible year by many counts, but in terms of fics it was terrific. It was seriously hard to narrow it down but I've compiled my 50 favorites that completed posting in 2016. (Previous years' lists are here: 2013 / 2014 / 2015)

AUs tend to dominate this year's picks, but there's a strong secondary showing of post-series 3 fics. Overall, lots of angst and cases, historical fiction, science fiction and magic, a bit of humor, a smattering of fluff, and even a couple of genfics this time round, but by and large it's Johnlock front and center.

With what has become my standard disclaimer: There are plenty of other fics that I loved, and even more that I simply didn't get around to reading (yet), so it's not a judgment if your favorite (or one you wrote) isn't on here. Think of this as a sampling rather than a definitive list. I hope this will help you to re-acquaint yourself with fics you loved, give a chance to others you may have skipped the first time round, and possibly discover something entirely new and astonishing.

Open to read... )

This is the result of a woeful tale of procrastination, writer's block, overstretching, and eventually perseverance: two versions of the same story. The shorter one is all I managed to get done in time for the [livejournal.com profile] holmestice exchange. The longer one is the story I originally set out to write, finally completed mere hours before the absolute deadline I set myself of December 31st. I don't know if one is better than the other; the shorter one is fluffier but has several incomplete arcs. The longer one is angstier and might meander a bit but they both get to the same point in the end. In any event, I am extremely grateful to the Holmestice mods for their patience and generosity with me, and to [livejournal.com profile] kinkajou for the prompts which seemed to have been custom picked for my particular likes.
