Buthal by JessamyGriffith [21K]
Sherlock/John (non-explicit). First time. Partial AU. Urban fantasy. Celtic mythology. Kidfic. Favorite.
Just as every story requires a villain, it also needs a hero. Every fairy tale ought to have magical curses. And every good legend must have a man fighting a monster.
But monsters, like men, come in many shapes and many sizes, and it is not always easy to tell which is which.
A twisted fairy tale. Here be giants.
This Machine Called Man by tartanfics [29K]
Sherlock + John. Friendship/pre-slash. Partial AU. Android!Sherlock. Casefic. Alternative meeting. Favorite.
London, 2081. John Watson, former army roboticist, has an expired licence and an illegal tri-wing screwdriver in his desk. Sherlock Holmes has fingerprints and a name, and in an office somewhere in Whitehall there are blueprints for the metal underneath his perfect, artificial skin.
Contamination by jacquez [16K]
Sherlock + John. Friendship/pre-slash. Canon. Casefic. Deviance. Humour. Favorite.
Sherlock snatched the photos from his hand. “Happy birthday to me,” he said, spreading them out on the table. “This is even better than the year I got a pony and it bit Mycroft.”
John blinked. “Is it actually your birthday, or are you just happy to have pictures of a particularly gruesome murder to look at?”
