The Detective and the Demon

By: oreganotea
Summary: “Every demon on record is described as either monstrously terrifying or breathtakingly beautiful,” Sherlock says. “I have never heard of a demon with a forgettable face and a propensity for ugly jumpers.” The demon looks down at his jumper. Okay, so it might not be the most flattering article of clothing in the world, but it sure looks a hell of a lot more comfortable than Sherlock’s two-sizes-too-small shirt.

Rainbow Hearts Retreat

By: PajamaSecrets
Summary: “It’s a same-sex couples retreat. For those experiencing troubles in their relationship. Consists of group and couples therapy as well as encouraging socialization between the couples. It’s all in their incredibly dull brochure.” “Rainbow Hearts Retreat,” John read. “Sounds… quite gay.”

He’s Not Paid Enough to Deal with This Shit

By: janonny
Summary: One of the first things John did was to write up step-by-step instructions on how to conduct a proper job interview before handing it over to Mycroft for his perusal. There were no kidnapping, deserted car parks or stolen therapy notes anywhere on that list. (Or the one where John returned from the war and ended up working for Mycroft as his personal assistant slash doctor on retainer. Everything was fine, until he was sent to post bail for one Sherlock Holmes.)
Rating: Teen and Up Audiences – F/M, M/M – AU-Canon Divergence, Humor, First Meetings

Love Is A Much More Capricious Communicator

By: guns_and_poses
Summary: For a prompt: When Sherlock first lays eyes on John, it’s love at first sight. Unfortunately, Sherlock is sort of a two-year-old about emotions, and gets clumsy, tongue-tied and stupid every time he tries to speak to John. As everyone goes on about how brilliant Sherlock is, John is left wondering if they’re talking about the same Sherlock Holmes. Because the Sherlock he knows is barely capable of stringing together a coherent sentence.
Rating: Teen and Up Audiences – M/M – Crack, Fluff, Humor, Embarrassed Sherlock, Clumsy Sherlock, Sherlock Being an Idiot, Misunderstandings, Love at first sight

The Adoption of John Watson Holmes

By: cyerus
Summary: Mummy thinks that John Watson is so good for Sherlock that she must make sure he stays with her son. If that means she has to force-adopt the man, then so be it. Mycroft is smug. Sherlock is horrified. John goes BAMF on everyone.
Rating: General Audiences – Gen – Crack, Fluff, Humor

I Just Had Sex

By: pennydreadful
Summary: Sherlock just had sex and he’s going to make sure everyone knows.
Rating: Teen and Up Audiences – M/M – Humor, Crack
