July 2016 has brought us up to 221 works and more! Your mods would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of you - writers, reccers and readers alike - for making this collection a very special little corner of the "Sherlock" fandom. :-)

The story that made us hit the magic number was an excellent example of what we collect, and why we collect it - a rock solid casefic, based on an ACD story, but with all the particular warmth and depth and special-ness that is Sherlock and John's friendship in the BBC series:

10:16 pm - FIC: Two left, one right (BBC Sherlock)

This one was written for therapeutic reasons after the blood, sweat and tears of "And yet, here I am". Throughout "His Last Vow", Sherlock gets trampled on by so many people in so many ways that I felt he deserved at least some twenty minutes of relative peace and happiness between disasters.

And while I did definitely not mind the scene in which Molly slaps Sherlock for not letting his friends help him deal with his supposed drug problem, I did mind that there was never a resolution to it. Molly matters to Sherlock, she's part of his family, a rock of reliability and loyalty. She deserved to make up with him properly.

Title: Two left, one right


Sherlock is back in hospital after absconding from it for John's sake. Molly Hooper, too, has something that needs to be put right. A bedside visit. - A missing moment from "His Last Vow", not in the sense that it must have happened; more a fix-it that I wish would have happened, and there's nothing in canon to say that it can't have, so there.

Pairings: Very tentative Sherlock/Molly
Categories: Friendship, Hurt/Comfort, and shameless Fluff.

Characters: Sherlock Holmes, Molly Hooper, Greg Lestrade
Rating: Harmless

09:56 pm - FIC: And yet, here I am
OK, this is the one scene I’ve always wanted to write. It began to take on a life of its own in my head the moment the end credits of “His Last Vow” started rolling, and it has been with me ever since.

It has been described by a reviewer on AO3 as "kind of brutal and yet beautiful", which is exactly what I was aiming at.

Title: And yet, here I am

I once heard a wise man say that sentiment is a chemical defect found in the losing side, and that you should never let your heart rule your head. It is perhaps a strange whim of nature that the wisest men are always the last to follow their own advice. And that includes myself, I’m afraid. I once told that very same man that caring is not an advantage. And yet, here I am.”

After the disaster at Appledore, Mycroft Holmes contemplates Sherlock’s future (or lack thereof). Sherlock himself has very little to say on the matter. A missing moment from “His Last Vow”. Drama, Angst, a lot of Hurt and very little Comfort. Rated PG-13 (or T) for references to suicide.
100% canon compatible.

Rating: Heartless
Feedback is much appreciated!
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/2325254

I started with the idea that Mycroft and Sherlock should sort this out without ever looking each other in the eye, and I was curious to see for how long Sherlock would actually keep his mouth shut as well. And of course, I wanted to see whether I could make them both cry. I must say I’m rather pleased with the result. Sherlock says all of two words, and that very late in the day, and I was certainly crying by the time I typed them.

Enjoy it, if you can!

11:50 am - FIC: The Adventure of the Left Shoe (BBC Sherlock)
How is it that there is SO much Hurt/Comfort being written in the Sherlock fandom?

Of course, Sherlock suffers beautifully, but canonically, you will need to bodily knock him out cold or shoot him in the chest for anyone to be allowed to take care of him at all, and you can't do that all the time in fanfic. So for the longest time, I never looked at any of it.

Until I realised that Sherlock lends himself perfectly to Hurt/Comfort precisely because he'd resent it so much.

So here it is, Jolie's first ever Hurt/Comfort fic, featuring

  • my favourite non-pairing (unrequited Sherlock/Molly)

  • Sherlock doing Parkour in his full coated and scarfed glory

  • Molly Hooper comparing the love of her life first to a cat and then to a waterfall

  • John commenting on the state of Sherlock's knees and refusing to give the dating advice that Sherlock never asked for anyway

  • and a left shoe.

Summary: One of Sherlock’s secret bolt-holes in London is Molly Hooper’s bedroom, and that’s CANON. But how the hell did that happen? - A missing moment from just before “The Reichenbach Fall”. Action, Friendship, and a goodly dose of Hurt/Comfort - or it would be, if Sherlock would ever allow that sort of thing. Unrequited Sherlock/Molly, 100 % canon compatible.
Category: Hurt/Comfort, Friendship, Humour, and don't Molly wish it were Romance, too.
Rating: PG
Feedback is much appreciated!

08:49 pm - FIC: Dust is Eloquent (BBC Sherlock)
I could do this all day and all night.

But after having done it for a couple of days and nights at the cost of severely neglecting my job, my family, my friends and my health, I'm not sure I can do this very often...

Summary: How did St. Barts Hospital become Sherlock’s home away from home? Set before „A Study in Pink“. Sherlock and Molly meet for the first time. Mike Stamford chuckles. Mycroft does not approve. Greg Lestrade saves the day. Unrequited Sherlock/Molly (100 % canon compatible)
Category: A little romance, a little drama, a little humour. Let's say Gen.
Rating: PG for subtle references to drug abuse.
Feedback is much appreciated!
Link: Dust is Eloquent

Molly is a wonderful character. It drives me up the wall how she lets Sherlock treat her, but we saw a big improvement to that in Season 3, and honestly, if Sherlock were to walk into my lab, I'd be bowled over just the same. So here's to you, sister!
