I have a fierce FIERCE hankering for fics which involve Watson not in his right mind or kind of out of it. i.e. Faulty reasoning, hallucinations, distraction, synesthesia or in some way perceiving the world with a skew. This could be because of an injury or madness or magic or because he's a ghost the whole time or anything at all.

ACD is my favorite but I'll welcome any and all verses except for Ritchie.

Here are some wonderful examples/bribes.Under here )

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.

I'm going to feel really stupid when this is found, because I'm pretty sure I read this recently. I'm looking for a relatively short fic that involves Holmes and Watson spending the night in a cabin, snowed in/caught in a blizzard. The trick is, the author wrote the same scenario from three different perspectives - book canon/Granada, RDJ verse, and Sherlock. All three were very well written, very in line with the tone of that particular fandom. No major detailsto speak of, although I know the RDJ bit included the 'old cock, mother hen' routine, and the Sherlock bit involved them needing to stop because Sherlock saw the cabin and stood up on the snowmobile, which resulted in him being hit on the head by a low hanging branch. Sound familiar?

Edit: Found (extremely quickly, as always) in comments.

Hey guys, I'm looking for some recs again ;) This time, I'd love to read some fanfics where Holmes is/gets turned into a vampire. I read one yesterday, but it was unfinished. I'd prefer ACD or Granada verse, but BBC and RDJ verse is fine as well. In the story I read, the whole thing, although supernatural, was still very realistic with how Holmes had to cope with the change and it would be awesome if you would know any stories like that. So no Twilight, Holmes sparkles in sunlight stuff xD Also, it doesn't have to be slash, but if it is, I only read Holmes/Watson. But gen is fine too.

thanks, guys <3

So, I'd really love to read a story where Holmes and Watson have to work/interact whatever, with a third person and Holmes unusually takes a liking to them, or at least Watson thinks so and is hurt by how Holmes seems to disregard him. Maybe because the other person is better at deduction than Watson? or something like that. In the end, of course ;) Holmes makes it all up to Watson and shows him who his one and only friend is.

Basically, and story where Watson gets pushed in the background a bit by someone else. I'd prefer canon or Granada verse, but BBC verse is fine as well.

also, I love stories where Holmes is protective/supportive of Watson, so if you know any good ones, let me know :D all verses are appreciated, though as always, my first love is canon.

Can anyone point me in the direction of supernatural themed fics of any description for either BBC Sherlock or ACD Canon? It can be something with a rational explanation as per Hound of the Baskervilles - or vampires, werewolves, ghosts, spooky atmosphere, AUs, crossovers, etc. Non-slash only, please!

Thanks in advance for any recs :)

All I remember is that Holmes and Watson bought a new bed that was big enough for both of them.  They were returning to Baker St. when it was delivered.  There was a reporter outside who was threatening to out them, I think.  Mrs. Hudson saved the day by saying the bed was for her.

That is literally all I remember.  I can't even remember if I liked the fic or not.

Any help appreciated.

I have somehow lost a very rare story; I'm greatly hoping someone can find it. It was a Watson/Lestrade fic, either ACD or Granada verse, and it involved Lestrade and Watson growing closer during the three year hiatus. After Holmes is revealed to be alive, Lestrade goes to see him, because he knows that Holmes will always be more important to Watson, and demands to know if Holmes didn't realize how badly he was hurting Watson, or he just didn't care. I remember that Holmes' reply is something like, "Lestrade, you've fallen in love with my Watson." It ends with Watson moving back into Baker Street, but still remaining with Lestrade. Does this ring any bells?

While I'm on the subject, if anyone knows of any other good fics with Lestrade/Watson interaction, I'd love to see them. Slash or just platonic friendship; I'll take what I can get. But please, ACD or Granada only.

Edit: Story found!!!

Hello everyone!

I'm looking for an specific fic,ACD I think-perhaps Granada verse- it was and I remember that Watson and Holmes are walking through a river, stepping on slippery stones, when Watson slips and falls -I think there was a waterfall???- Holmes rescues him of course. I think they were on the countryside because of a case, but can't remember if the case was related to a friend of the good Doctor or I'm mixing fanfics!

Really hoping someone could help me out! And thank you in advance!

Hello everyone! I'd love it if someone could help me find a fic where Holmes and Watson are starting their friendship and Holmes takes a case where there's a woman with two kids and he cant help them in the conventional ways (deduction and such) and ends up giving her lots of money  so she can start over. After this, Holmes tells Watson, expecting the worst but instead Watson makes it his problem and decides to help his flatmate, because I think that the money Holmes gives away it was the money for the rent. Holmes is very much surprised. I can't quite remember if it was Granada verse, Ritchie's or ACD canon

FOUND- See comments for link and saviour

Hey guys I hope all of you had a splendid holiday and are celebrating our beloved Holmes birthday today, January 6 you know! The man is turning 160th old that’s quite the accomplishment. Anyway I'm currently going to be bedridden for the foreseeable week due to surgery and my mom's flu and I was hoping you guys can help me find some great reading material. I have a new laptop that I haven't bookmark things in yet so I would really like to start. Anyway I'm in the mood for the original canon with Holmes and Dr. Watson romance to be honest. I'm looking for some very specific stories that hopefully someone out there will know them.

Okay so the first one I'm looking for is basically about Dr. Watson being replaced by Mycroft because Mycroft believes that Dr. Watson is unsuitable companion for Holmes after he returns from his hiatus. The story begins with Dr. Watson about to move back into Baker St when Mycroft shows up and tells Watson that his presence and services to Holmes will no longer be required and that Holmes no longer wishes to be associated with him. At first Watson doesn't believe him and then Mycroft threaten him with revealing Watson's secret pass to Holmes if he doesn't leave London immediately. Mycroft then has Watson located to a remote town in England that is almost unknown on the map. The Watson gets involved in a murder spree and tries to help the constable and local town doctor to solve the mystery. The police force hate Watson and believe him to be stupid then Watson is kidnapped and framed for the murder of the entire population of the inn he was staying at. Meanwhile in London Holmes is delighted to have Watson moving back in with him before he receive the unpleasant visit of Watson's replacement provided by Mycroft. He then finds out that Watson is missing and Mycroft's betrayal to his friendship with Watson. Holmes looks everywhere for Watson without much luck, then he received a letter from the doctor of the town Watson is in requesting an explanation for Watson sudden appearance and he’s help with finding missing Watson. Holmes takes Lestrade with him to the mystery town and meet up with the town doctor who informs him of the situation. Watson after being kidnapped was heavily drug with exotic plants and tortured before Holmes recues him from a hidden green house. Mycroft comes to the town and Holmes is beyond angry and he isn’t the only one. The town doctor gives him an earful and Lestrade over hears everything including Watson’s past. Once Watson gets better they return to London to resolves the rest of their issues. I remember this story being either canon or at the very least 09vers. Please can someone help me find it please! I remember seeing it in Watsonwoes and in another place in LJ but for the life of me I can’t remember!

The next story is one where Holmes is a criminal who is injured and on the run from Scotland yard. He hides himself in Watson’s office and has Watson treat him. It instant attraction between the two where Watson can’t stop stinking about Holmes. I remember a scene where Holmes breaks Watson out of jail and takes him to the punch bowl where Watson watches Holmes fighting and gets aroused and Holmes notices it and makes a very naughty comment. I do remember it was a 09vers as well so that might hell too.

Anyway guys I would also really like if you guys can recommend any canon stories you might know of that are long and has a strong Holmes character. Anything would really do I will even accept 09vers too since I don’t want to be bored. You know what any version with a strong Holmes will do with Holmes/Watson pairing prefered! So please if you could help this fan it would totally be appreciated! Thanks guys!

I'm looking for this established Holmes/Watson fic, victorian!verse. At the beginning, Watson is playing cards with some Yarders in a pub, and someone makes an off-hand homophobic remark. Watson, taking it too seriously because he is deeply afraid that anyone might find out about him and Holmes, reacts far too strongly. Everyone looks at him, taken aback, with the result that Watson gets more and more flustered and eventually storms out. Someone (Lestrade?) goes after him to see if he's alright and again, Watson's reaction is too extreme. Watson goes home and confesses to Holmes that he made a blunder, but I have no idea how it develops from there. I think someone does try to blackmail them?

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

*FOUND: A Case Of Identity by sparkle_free, wherein Holmes goes "undercover" as Mary.

I just finished the game and I'm seriously impressed with it. It is even better than Sherlock Holmes vs Jack the Ripper.
Now, I'd really love to read a fanfiction that somehow involves the events of the game. For example the explosion in front of the house where Watson gets injured and Holmes just runs away, or where Watson discovers that Holmes is still alive and so on.

I guess the chance of such a fic is rather slim xD  so if you don't know any.... I'm open for all fanfictions you can suggest, the longer the better  ;)
The only thing I don't like is BBC!verse, sorry :P original prefered.

Hello everyone!

I was hoping for a little help in finding a certain type of fic.  I am looking to read any and all fics where John Watson does not forgive Sherlock Homes for his presumed death.  And ideally, I would like this fact to be acknowledged.  I don't have a preference as to which verse this is in.

Thank you :)!

Hi everybody!

I just finished http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5796884/1/All-Hope-Abandoned and I know I've read several other stories where Holmes hurts Watson. But now I'm looking for fics where it's the other way round, meaning Watson hurting Holmes, either deliberately or accidentally.

It can be slash or gen, mental anguish or bodily harm.

I do prefer happy endings but it's not a must.

Oh, and PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE no BBC!verse or 09movie!verse.

Happy Sunday and thanks ever so much!

I have vague memories of a story crossing over one of the Victorian Holmes/Watson 'verses with Jeeves/Wooster, wherein Jeeves is somehow related to (son? cousin?) Holmes and/or Watson; they actually raised him, I believe. He is acting as a secret government agent sort of thing, and ends up falling in love with Bertie. Holmes is rather WTF? about it because Bertie, is, well, not of the same intellectual caliber, to put it diplomatically. Watson reassures him that whatever else Bertie is, he's an honest, good-hearted man who obviously adores their son/cousin/nephew/whatever.

Does anyone remember this?

I'm looking for a fic (if there is a fic) that has all the Holmes gather annually for them to complain to each other and generally argue who has the better Watson. There would be BBC!Sherlock, RDJ!Holmes, Granada!Holmes, and all the other Holmes you can think of, including the Great Mouse Detective.

If there is such a fic, it would be greatly accepted into my databanks of goodness.

I am looking for any good Holmes/Watson Granada or ACD fics that are kicking around, especially if there's less of a chance that I've read them before (because let's face it, I've read almost all of them). 

I'm a sucker for happy endings, but I do love me some relationship angst :)

I am looking for a specific fanfic I read several months ago.  It may be ACD, RJD, or Grenada-verse.  What I rememeber is that Holmes has a case and is running all over London with Watson.  Watson is starting a relapse of his fever that he suffered from in the war and trying despeately hard to hide it from Holmes.  I remember Watson worring about what good he would be to Holmes if he couldn't even try to keep up.  Watson finally collapses chasing Holmes halfway up a hill in the middle of the street, frighteing Holmes half to death.  Holmes takes him home and nurses him back to health feeling very guilty that he didn't notice.  It could be a pre-slash, slash, or a gen fic(with heavy pre-slash overtones).  That part I can't remember.

Does this sound familar to anyone?


Found:   An Understanding by endsoftime.  Thank you to equusentric  and  mick_gz  for their wonderful help in finding this story.
