For some reason I remember this one story on fanfiction.net where John discovers Sherlock's drug stash, and he asks Sherlock how does he think they pay for the war. Sherlock assumes John is talking about their side, but gets told off when John tells him Afghanistan is the biggest opium producer and they get their weapons and ammo from selling to rich druggies like Sherlock. Then, John mentions how maybe Sherlock paid for the bullet that nearly killed him. I remember it wasn't a happy ending, with Sherlock throwing out the drugs and asks if John is happy, but it doesn't really fix anything.

Hello. I have been trying to find a Sherlock Holmes ACD verse for quite awhile now. I remember i read the fic on ffn.net and it is multichapters. It rated G or K i dont remember. It's mostly about holmes and watson friendship, very adorable. If i'm not mistaken, the first chapter involved Mrs. Hudson asking Holmes and Watson dont refer by their first name to which they smiled and said "we don't know". And there's also a chapter, in the middle, around 12 or 24 sth idk, that featured holmes and watson on a case and they stayed at their client's house i think. There was a boy with a teddy bear and watson fixed the teddy bear for the kid (and holmes smiled when he saw watson i think).

I could have sworn that the tittle is sth like a fairy tale of baker street or sth, very long name, but i still cant find it. Also, most chapters were often shorted. Thank you.

Edit: i found it! It's Tales of 221B ! The chapter that Mrs. Hudson asked them is chapter 2 not 1, and the tittle is shorter than i remember lol

I'm looking for a Sherlock Holmes fan fic that has Sherlock getting into an accident and caused him to be deaf and blind at least tempoarilly.  It's a based on the book series.

Hi all,
I'm looking for BBC Sherlock slash fics, preferably long, slow build ones, where Sherlock is in a relationship with another man, who is not either John or Lestrade. Basically, I'm looking for long slash fics that have Sherlock as one of the partners, but are not Johnlock or Sherstrade. The other person can be an OMC, a crossover character, a more minor character from Doyle canon, anyone. Just curious to see how such a relationship would be percieved by the other characters, particularly John.

Hi all,
I'm looking for two specific BBC sherlock fics:
1. Sherlock suffers some form of brain injury that leaves him in a childlike state, John looks after him at Baker Street. I remember John was in a relationship with Mary, and at one point was startled at how good Mary was with Sherlock. Mycroft visits at some point and gives John guardianship of Sherlock, but requests visitation rights or something. I think he also deposits a sum of money in John's bankaccount, because money was tight or something. I think it was on ff . net.
2. A post-Fall fic where Sherlock comes back with an injured leg I think, requiring a cane or something. It was a long fic, and at the end Mycroft danced on the table with sabers or something after losing a bet to Sherlock. They get Sherlock some kind of giant dog that destroys one of his scarfs I think.
Also, if there are any fics where Sherlock returns post-Fall with some kind of physical disability, that would be great too.
Thanks very much!!

I just read a retelling of The Adventures of the Dying Detective in the BBC 'verse and I was reminded of an old story taking place during the case. I remember very little but I'd love to read it again. It takes place in Victorian times and I'm pretty sure it's Holmes/Watson slash or at least pre-slash. I only remember part of it. Watson was very hurt that Holmes didn't trust him as a doctor and believed that everything Holmes had said was right, so he decided to leave. I'm not sure what happened to him then. Holmes notices something is wrong when Watson doesn't return. I think he went looking for him?

Does this seem familiar?

Im not really sure what 'verse these were set in but it HAD to be one of the older ones because both contained stuff like gas lights and carriages that really arent used in the new series so im gonna put this under verse:other since i have no idea what some of the universes in the tags are for.

both synopsis under here )

Was wondering if any of you tech savvy people could help me. I absolutely loved this BBC Sherlock fic - Painted by Numbers. It was magical realism, John and Sherlock were in a relationship and everyone had a number on their foreheads, supposedly representing their IQ. I've sure a lot of you have read the fic in question but now it's gone. The author has closed/abandoned LJ and Ao3 accounts and I can't find it anywhere.
I know when this has happened before sometimes people can find an archived version somewhere out there in the ether[net]! I tried doing this but no luck and I don't really know what I'm doing.
Anyway I would LOVE to read this again so if anyone has a saved copy or has any idea how to access deleted fic please, please let me know!
The URLs I had for it in my bookmarks were:


Title: Painted by Numbers
Author Woe-in-a-hoodie or Malacophilous?

Many thanks

Does anyone remember a fic in the ACD-verse where Holmes did go over the Reichenbach Falls and was killed. However, a woman who knew voodoo tried to bring him back to life but when she was unable to complete the ritual, he was left in a half alive state. He managed to drag himself back to London where Mycroft and Watson spend most of the story trying to get him all the way back to life and keep him from decaying (ew!) further. The story may be unfinished, at any rate, I don't remember the ending.
So, does this ring any bells with anyone? I'd really like to find this one again.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a tag for zombie Holmes.

Hope someone can help me find this. Read it years ago. It was bbc verse. Sherlock had deduced that john was attracted to him but was waiting for john to make the first move. John doesnt so sherlock eventually kisses him which goes well except when the kiss is over john denies being gay/attracted. I cant remeber how but Sherlock convinces john to try a relationship and agrees to go very slow. Sherlock eventually deduces that john had a previous homosexual relationzhip but it was abusive. John wont tell him who. Sherlock spends month carefully and lovingly helping john learn a real relationship and how homosexual sex should actually feel. Last seen has them in tbe park sitting next to each other holding hands after john had run away after cinally realizing just how abused he had been by the previous lover.

Any ideas?

I'm looking for a fic in which Watson is fooled by a lady who uses an onion to make herself cry. Holmes sneaks his lock picks on to Watson with a hug, and it causes a huge fuss.

In particular, there's a scene where they're arguing next to the fireplace, and Watson describes all the colour rushing out of Holmes' face and into his as Holmes goes pale and he blushes.

It's possibly Granada verse, but I think it's ACD.

...Or rather a fanfic featuring a custom that was unknown to me, until reading of it in the fic, and it's basically the telling of the bees; in which its exactly what is sounds like: you tell the bees when an important event in your life occurs.

I can't recall much of the fanfic, but I think, unless I'm mistaking it with another, that it was written for an exchange, but can't remember if it was for holmestice or something else and John is the one telling the bees stuff. It's a very good story and the writing style is lovely.

I know that's not much to go on, but I hope this rings a bell and someone can help with the search!

Just like the title said, I'm looking for a story where Hannibal is John's father and Sherlock finds out after they meet on a case. From what I remember John helped his father with killing when he was a kid and that's how he got his training as a doctor. I can't remember what site I found this on, but probably Fanfiction.net or A03.

I'm looking for a story where Sherlock cares for John's newborn baby after Mary dies.
I remember that the story starts at the hospital. The baby is left at the neonatal ward and Sherlock fetches her and asks the nurses for instructions on baby formula etc. He is the sole carer of the baby for a long time, John has somehow shut off and is indifferent towards the baby. I think that Sherlock even names her.

I might confuse more than one stories. I remember that Sherlock was fascinated by the baby and kept her with him most of the time. John was drowned in grief and didn't react to the baby crying. I remember that Sherlock took care of both father and child. There was a scene with both John and the baby coming back to Baker Street after the hospital and Sherlock guiding John back inside and upstairs.

I can't believe that I forgot all about it.

Thank you in advance for your answer

ETA: Partially found. The hospital scene is from Just for fun by Littlepippin76.

So the fic that I'm searching for I read on AO3. It's an established Mystrade and in the first chapter Greg is home when there's a knock at the door and there are these two kids,a boy and a girl teenagers twins, and they are there to return Greg's suitcase. The girl sort of freaks out when they discover that Greg is a DI but the boy is ok with it. Mycroft gets home and I think Greg invites them to have dinner and they end up staying the night. Greg gets attached and so does Mycroft, they sort of keep an eye on the kids. The kids father is a drug leader who hits them and forces them to sell drugs. The girl always tries to defend her brother from their abusive father. At one point they run away after the father hits them and the girl defending her brother hits him with something and kills him. Greg and Mycroft send Sherlock and John to find them. I remember that they go to the kids school and Mycroft says that the boy had some disorder that Sherlock had. I remember more of the fic but have research on AO3 and google for the past 3 months or so and haven't been able to find anything, I'm hoping that someone in this community recognizes the fic. I do remember more of the fic but I don't want to give all the plot away, but if someone needs more detail to jog their memory I'm will to give it.

Thank you!!

I'm looking for a specific fic I read a while back on ao3, where Lestrade was an alpha of a large pack in London(I think they were actual werewolves) and Mycroft is his omega. Sherlock is also an omega, and I think Molly and Andersen possibly. Omegas are really rare or something. John comes back from Afghanistan a broken alpha without a pack, and he persuades Lestrade to take him in, and ends up submitting to Lestrade. It did pair Mycroft/Lestrade/John together for some scenes, and I think it was part of a series of possibly unrelated but similar fics. It was really long, but I can't for the life of me find it anywhere. Help?
Thanks : )

Hi, I'm new here, but I've been searching for these two stories all over the place, and I'm desperate.

The first one: I think it's on fanfiction.net but I could be wrong. I know it's set in the BBC verse, and Sherlock comes home to find John dead, supposedly of natural causes. Sherlock shuts down and Mycroft and Lestrade come and have to force Sherlock away from John's body. Afterwards, when Molly is about to do the autopsy, John starts breathing. It turns out that he was poisoned by Moriarty.

The second: It's set in ACD verse. Not sure of the website, but I think it's in Lestrade's POV. Basically Holmes tells Watson to go to a barn and free a girl while he and the officials take on the bad guys. It turns out Holmes is wrong and the thugs are actually in the barn and Watson walks in on them. When Holmes sees the kidnapped girl, he immediately runs out. When he gets there, Watson had been beaten badly and stabbed and they had hanged him to the rafters. I'm pretty sure he didn't die.

Any help would be appreciated.

Ok, I'm out of my mind trying to find this fic; I read it between 6 months to a year ago, and I'm almost sure it's a oneshot. It starts with Sherlock confronting Mycroft about their father's death, as he'd been recently working on a case that made him realize that Mycroft had killed their father when they were children. Mycroft at first panics and tries to make excuses and use subterfuge, but in the end the truth comes out, that he was abused for years by his father, and that he only killed him, by poisoning his drink with pills of some sort, when the bastard started to move in on little Sherlock.

All of the story takes place in the flat, though there are plenty of flashbacks, and at first Sherlock doesn't want to believe Mycroft, but John is there to serve as mediator and make Sherlock realize the truth. The story ends with Sherlock starting to remember bits and pieces of their childhood which explains why Mycroft was always crying and distant, and the two of them hug it out on the couch.

I'm pretty sure I read it on FF.net and not AO3, but I could be wrong. Please help if you have any idea what I'm talking about. It was a very good fic and I'd love to read it again.

So I remembered this fic from the old kinkmeme (sherlockkink). I think it was called The Contract, and it was a multipart but never-finished fill for an arranged marriage prompt. And it may have disappeared forever from the Internet, but on the off chance that it is available somewhere, I really would like to read it again.

It was set in the Victorian era, but with some alternate history things about the British upper classes having developed a sort of institutionalised version of Greek pedagogical eros that combined with really only needing one son to continue the family line and devolved into (often creepy and exploitative) mandatory arranged relationships for younger sons. From what I remember, the author put a lot of thought into how the legal system, courtship traditions, and fashions would work within the society.

And it was super-creepy. Moriarty had not-so-secretly had his eye on Holmes for a few years (long before such attention would be considered appropriate even in-universe) and convinced Holmes's father (who is deathly ill) that the best way to provide for his two sons is for him to designate in his will that Sherlock be married to Moriarty. The rest of the fic was Holmes, Watson, and Mycroft trying (unsuccessfully, thus far) to contest the legality of the change and Moriarty planning all of the devious things he's going to do once he has Holmes in his clutches.

If anyone remembers it and/or knows if the author ever reposted it somewhere else (or if you are the author and I can persuade you to repost it), that would be much appreciated!!

I'm looking for a short fic I read ages ago, possibly on Cox and Co. Years after Reichenbach, Holmes is approached by a blackmailer who acquired Moriarty's estate at auction. Among Moriarty's mundane academic books, said bad guy finds a love letter from Holmes to Moriarty (the two apparently had an affair while the former was a student). Any help finding this would be greatly appreciated!
