Carry On by Mazarin221b [4K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. Canon. Hurt/comfort. Injured!John.
“Christ, Mike, I think he’s in love with me,” John says, then drops his forehead on the bar.
Mike takes a long swallow of beer, then eyes John a bit more closely. “What the hell makes you think that? He’s not … I mean, not that I don’t like the bloke, I mean, I do, but really. Sherlock? You sure you don’t still have concussion issues?”
(Five times John didn’t want to be carried, and one time he did.)
The Sea Rolls On by eight_demands [15K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. AU. Pirates. Action/adventure.
John knew he was being reckless. They’d all heard stories about sailors who’d been taken by pirates on the border islands, how beautiful young men or women were used to lure the unwary into deserted back alleys, where they’d be robbed and killed – if they were lucky. John wasn’t lucky. He knew that even before the sharp blow against his skull dropped him into darkness.
Achieving the Together-Coloured Instant by teahigh [20K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). Established. Canon. Character focus. TRF aftermath.
John wonders if this is how it’s going to be: A life speaking in code, because they’re both too stupid to figure out how to say, “I love you.”
With a Cup in One Hand and a Sword in the Other by goddessdster [15K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. Partial AU. Magic realism. Tarot. Casefic.
John’s true self expresses as a Wand and Sherlock’s as a Sword, so whatever they are, they’re perfectly matched. Except maybe Sherlock isn’t entirely a Sword. This would bear examining, if it weren’t for the murderer stalking Deaths.
The Moment Pleasantly Frightful by teahigh [17K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. Canon. Hurt/comfort. TRF aftermath.
Sherlock disregards social cues and oversteps boundaries all the time, every day. During interviews with clients, during working with the Yard. Hell, even going for a walk through the park or going out for dinner. John has long since become used to it, but that still doesn’t mean he wants to think about what kind of damage Sherlock would be capable of inflicting in the privacy of his bedroom. Mostly because John can’t imagine there being anything Sherlock wouldn’t do.
Northwest Passage by Kryptaria [95K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. Partial AU. Hurt/comfort. Rural living. Light D/s (Dom!Sherlock). Alternative meeting.
Seven years ago, Captain John Watson of the Canadian Forces Medical Service withdrew from society, seeking a simple, isolated life in the distant northern wilderness of Canada. Though he survives from one day to the next, he doesn’t truly live until someone from his dark past calls in a favor and turns his world upside-down with the introduction of Sherlock Holmes.
If I had a boat I would sail to you by Sunnyrea [20K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. AU. Action/adventure. Historical. Titanic fusion.
“Why are you going to jump?” He asks and Sherlock sees he genuinely wants to know.
Sherlock looks back at the water. “I’m bored.” Sherlock sighs heavily. “Bored of everything in this ridiculous life.”
“Would it be less boring if I jumped too?”
Practical Johnkeeping by what_alchemy [4K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). Established. Canon. Old age. Hurt/comfort.
Sherlock predicts nectar flow the same way he deduces a murder, but he harvests the honey like John coddles the dog.
Electric Pink Hand Grenade by BeautifulFiction [67K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. Canon. Hurt/comfort. Sick!Sherlock.
“If Sherlock’s brain is a hard drive, then these attacks are an electro-magnetic pulse.” Sherlock Holmes does not do anything by half, not even a migraine.
Song of the Dauntless Knight by antietamfalls [48K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. AU. Medieval. Hurt/comfort. Action/adventure.
14th-century England. Sir John Watson and his knightly comrades return home from fighting for the Black Prince in France and enter into the household service of Duke Moriarty. Among the many castle denizens is Lord Sherlock Holmes, heir to his brother the Earl and long-time hostage of the Duke. An unlikely relationship soon emerges.
Follow You Into The Trenches by twisting_vine_x [13K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. Canon. Torture. Hurt/comfort. TRF aftermath.
When Sherlock goes underground to track down the gunmen, he doesn’t do it alone. Unfortunately, Moriarty’s operatives aren’t exactly helpless, and when John ends up in the line of fire – again – the ensuing events turn Sherlock’s world inside out in ways he might not ever be able to come back from.
The Carpathian Affair by songlin [5K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). Established. Partial AU. 1940s. Casefic. Injured!John.
“So, are you going to leave me to guess blind at the whole thing, or are you passing up a chance to show off for once?”
Sherlock smiles. “I’ll tell you this much: Vera Spaulding hasn’t been to the police. Take a moment then, and think. Why would she possibly report her employer’s disappearance to a private detective rather than the Yard?”
A Break In Routine by IamShadow21 [2K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. Canon. Humour. Injured!John. (Warning: S/J dub-con.)
“It wouldn’t hurt you to pull your load for once, you know,” John snipes. He’s grumpy, and he knows that it’s his arm that’s making him so grumpy, which serves to compound his grumpiness enough to turn him into a nagging spouse, apparently.
Sherlock doesn’t condescend to even answer. He probably thinks that kitchens clean themselves if you leave them long enough.
Fill our mouths with cinnamon now by lbmisscharlie [114K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. Partial AU. Kidfic. Action/adventure. Hurt/comfort. Epic.
“Imogen, then, she lives with you full time?”
“She does, yes. Will that be a problem?” Sherlock’s tone was almost forcefully flippant and John considered his answer carefully.
He thought of night terrors, of screaming and waking in sweat. He thought of guns in desk drawers and frustrated outbursts at useless limbs. “I don’t know,” he answered honestly.
Back in the Day by KeelieThompson1 [108K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. Partial AU. University. Hurt/comfort. Drug use. Humour. Alternative meeting. Epic.
John’s drunk and some idiot’s got himself high in the bathroom. It’s a shame he’s the only trainee doctor in the house.
A Johnlock story set while John is at university and an AU in that this time Sherlock is the one who’s a few years older and is trying to find something to keep his interest in London after getting bored and being thrown out of Uni.
