Any fics, gen or John/Sherlock, where Sherlock is regarded as the very child-like genius that he is. From the perspective of John, Mycroft (brotherly), or even Lestrade (friend/fatherly). He doesn’t know when he needs to sleep, or eat, or how to act in social situations. And if relationships are involved, he is even more confused. Actions that would be taken as romantic by anyone else, Sherlock just sees as him genuinely liking someone and stumblingly trying to show it. He puts himself in danger, frazzling his caretakers, simply because he can’t see past the game, focused, like a child. Things like that. He needs people to look after and protect him.
Would love any help! Thank you!
I'm sorry if this is not allowed, but I'm looking for a picture, or a series of pictures.
I'd probably found it on tumblr somewhere, and they were screen caps of A Study in Pink, when they'd just found the Pink Lady.
Lestrade and John are essentially quoting characters from the Mean Girls, like:
Sherlock: They wanted to get me socialized.
Lestrade/John: Oh you'll get socialized all right, a little slice like you.
Sherlock: What are you talking about?
Lestrade/John: You're a regulation hottie.
Lestrade/John: Own it.
And I'm still working on converting a bunch of people to Sherlock, for which I think this'd be helpful. I hope someone out there knows what I'm talking about!
Thanks in advance!
It was with John sitting dead in a chair with Sherlock just found him and having fallen to his knees, utterly devastated. The colours were very grey and black.
It's sparked some thoughts for fic in my head and it would be greatly appreciated if someone could point me towards it.
In the story, John prevents Sherlock from dying when he's supposed to and almost causes the end of the world. At the end, John makes Sherlock into an idea, thus rendering him immortal. It's also hinted that Mycroft knows all of this.
There were some lovely pictures to go with the story, including one of a starry hall containing four thrones for each of the Horsemen. John's was a stuffed armchair with Sherlock standing just behind.
Does anyone recognise this?
Found! It's Come and See by definewisdom.
Remind anybody of something?

I feel like I'm losing my mind - I have googled and gone through pages and pages of posts both on AO3 and at SherlockBBC and can't find what I'm looking for. Perhaps I hallucinated them?
Search #1: A comic (several pages long) of BBC John and Sherlock at the seashore. Sherlock is pouty and John offers to teach him how to swim. The art was gorgeous and the story engaging.
Search #2: A fic about BBC John describing the three types of smex he and Sherlock have - married and animal and one other kind. It was sweet and hot and I cannot find it.
Any and all help gratefully accepted!
ETA: Both found thanks to lovely, lovely folks. Links to both in the comments. Thanks again everyone!
I'm looking for a fic I've read some time ago. I'm afraid I don't remember the particulars, but I think it was a movie fic, possibly a PWP. It featured a Holmes getting overwhelmed by sounds and smells during a ball or a social gathering and using Watson's pulse in stead of his watch to focus and calm down. Does any of this ring a bell?
Also, I've recently read the two wonderful Sub Rosa and Dr Watson's Inner Monologues and I was wondering if there were more Sherlock Holmes artfics/comics out there...
Thanks for the help!
Can anyone help me find this again? Thank you.
Found!! The art was by spacefall and the fic, Haunted by rabidsamfan, and there is even a sequel to it!
I'm actually looking for a piece of art - I hope this isn't too out there for anybody.
I first saw it on one of the kink memes (I think) but the artist had continued to add to it on her LJ. It was a graphic novel style piece wherein Sherlock fell ill during a case (he had been working too hard) and John did his doctor thing. The artist had parts one and two up already.
It was beautifully drawn - truly gorgeous and accomplished. I suspect the artist actually worked in the field professionally. She also had hand drawn bookmarks for several different versions of Holmes and Watson; maybe she's been in the fandom for some time?
I hope somebody out there knows who this artist was. This piece has been haunting me and I can't make it go away until I see it again!
EDIT: Found! In comments
It features a (very nonfunctional) Dalek, a flabbergasted Doctor (Who not Watson, no idea which incarnation), a self satisfied Watson (having just shot said Dalek) and a gleeful Holmes (very proud to have such a good shot as his BFF).
The dialog was, I believe, merely an exchange between the Doctor and Holmes, the Doctor wondering what just happened here and Holmes boasting Watsons shooting prowess. Watson himself is satisfied with looking cool and the Dalek with looking dead.
Please tell me somebody knows where I can find this.
