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.

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.

Translator: swissmarg
Rating: Explicit
Word count: 4,944
Relationships: Holmes/Watson
Summary: Dr John H. Watson leaves Sherlock Holmes out of fear of being labeled a sodomist and losing his standing in society. His marriage to Mary is a disaster. The ensuing situation causes both him and Holmes to fall apart. When they run into each other at a dinner affair, a possible solution arises.

======

This fic is quite different than the other ones I've translated by this author. It's an ACD fic, for one, and it's quite short, basically just a couple of scenes with quite a lot of ruminating and remembering on Holmes' part. And it is super sad. Check the warnings. But it is also a quite beautiful (if tragic) depiction of Holmes and Watson's undeniable connection.

Relationships: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson, John Watson/Mary Morstan
Warnings: Canon character death

Notes: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] saki101 for the Summer 2015 [livejournal.com profile] holmestice exchange. The request was for something with a little bit of music or magic. Some liberties have been taken with the canon timeline. Spoilers for “A Study in Scarlet”, “The Sign of the Four”, "The Empty House" and “The Noble Bachelor”.

Summary: Sherlock gives John a little something to commemorate the day they became mates.
Notes: This is set in a Stone Age AU I've had ghosting around in my head for quite a while now. Maybe I will get around to doing proper research and writing it some day, but until then, here's a very seat-of-my-pants little scene. Sorry for all the exposition. This was written for the [livejournal.com profile] come_at_once 24-hour porn challenge in response to the prompt 'Obsidian' by [livejournal.com profile] mildred_bobbin, but I would also like to officially enter this in [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68's AU Ficathon of Absurdity because a) this is actually in response to one of my prompts there and b) caveman!Sherlock is surely the epitome of the absurd.

Summary: There must be rules to this new game Sherlock is playing. Right?
Notes: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] tetsubinatu for the 2013 round of [livejournal.com profile] holmestice. The parts of the prompt I used were: BBC, John/Sherlock, explicit sexual content, sex without condoms/lube, (something that borders on) consensual humiliation (if you squint), John has a skill that surprises Sherlock (v. minor point but still), a bit of case stuff, some Lestrade but no Moriarty or Irene, and if you wanted Sherlock could be a virgin. Things that somehow found their way into the fic without invitation: semi-public sex, a steampunk jellyfish, abuse of mnemonics, inappropriate Pavlovian responses to text alerts, and unexpected angst. Also: this started out lighthearted but took a pretty serious turn at the end. Please heed the warnings.

Summary: Uni AU. Mike sets John up on a blind date, but she never shows up. Instead, there's this mysterious stranger...
Disclaimer: Sherlock is a BBC production created by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat. This is a transformative fanwork with no copyright infringement intended.
Notes: Written for mistyzeo's prompt 'stood up' for the flash 24-hour porn challenge on [livejournal.com profile] come_at_once. My original submission can be found over there, but I have rewritten the ending now. This has not been beta read or Britpicked. Although Sherlock and John are younger than in the TV series, I'm setting this in the current time so I don't have to worry about technological anachronisms. Despite potential appearances, this does not contain any genderswap. And although the contrary may be hinted at in places, this is not meant to contain underage. I intended for both Sherlock and John to be over 18. Finally, I know what's mentioned with the university classes could never actually work in the U.K. but let's just pretend it's more like the U.S. system of education where pre-med students may have classes with other majors, kay? Kay. Just remember, it's all about the smut. The rest is just transport.

Summary: When John Watson was thirty-nine, a black heart appeared in the middle of his chest. When he was forty, he met a woman named Mary Morstan. When he was forty-one, he became a widower. And when he was forty-two, dust became flesh once more.

Notes: This is a sequel to my fic The Best Picture of the Human Soul and will not make any sense if you don't read that first. Thank you once again to [livejournal.com profile] similarfrowns for the quick and efficient beta-reading and Britpicking.

The amazingly talented Erin has created a perfect illustration for this fic, which you can view on her art blog. It contains spoilers, so I recommend reading this fic first before viewing the art. ;)

Huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] obsessionality and [livejournal.com profile] similarfrowns for the super efficient beta reading and Britpicking. You guys are awesome! Any remaining oddness is, of course, my fault.
