I’m looking for some fic recs that deal with the (direct) aftermath of the swimming pool face-off in 1x03. It doesn’t have to be canon compliant – so it doesn’t acknowledge the canon way it was resolved in 2x01. At the end of 1x03 it really could have still gone anyway and I would just love to read some fics which deal with that. Either it happened like in canon, but an author expounds on this shared and quite scary experience between Sherlock and John and doesn’t just ignore it like in the TV Series. Or these fics have their own take on what happened after 1x03 and expand upon that idea.

I just finished reading Light Our Own Fires (2010) by blackeyedgirl and absolutely loved her take on the aftermath and how she further worked it out. And that has given me an appetite for more stories using that setting / plot.
I don’t mind if it is gen or slash and any rating is good.
I enjoy all kinds of genres: angst, fluff, est. rel, getting together, friendship!fic, H/C, humor and so on.

Although I’m not a great fan of very overt BDSM or D/s stories. A little bit of spanking or binding or jokingly calling someone sir during sex-scenes are ok, but someone only getting off on pain (receiving or giving) and the other aspects of the BDSM scene kinda squick me. Also not the greatest fan of an actual Dom/sub relationship, I just can’t see the appeal . I respect it as a lifestyle-choice, but it just squicks me and thus I don’t want to read about it.

Thank You in advance

PS I hope I tagged ok, but I wasn’t entirely sure which tags to use (I used the tags that I think are probably going to reflect the stories)

Hmm, let me think. All these are Sherlock h/c and I think most of them have the AU situation of there being an actual explosion at the pool.

In verityburns case the answer to your question "how does anyone even write a 101,000 word fic??" is "very, very well." I like her stories.
