The Cinnamon Peeler series by
coloredink: Because romantic cannibalism is oddly compelling. I am always intrigued by the variety of deviance that is inspired by Sherlock’s character.
Learn to Wear Each Other Well by sinuous_curve: (Mycroft Holmes/Gregory Lestrade). Delightful.
At Least There’s the Football series by sheffiesharpe (Mycroft Holmes/Gregory Lestrade). In which Lestrade is an uncle, Anthea is a ninja and Mycroft is “occasionally unduly formal.”
A Love with No Name by aceofhearts61: (Sherlock/John) Asexuality, romance.
Performance in a Leading Role by Mad_Lori: (Sherlock/John) AU In which Sherlock and John are actors cast as co-stars. Lovely.
Planet Sherlock by pir8fancier: “Because of the dead bodies, explosions, black eyes—and the broken jaw that one time—it took John a good six months before he realized that Sherlock was sabotaging all of John’s relationships.” A common trope, perhaps, but this is one of the best.
A Reliable Man by randomly_rusted: (Mycroft Holmes/Gregory Lestrade). Dark. Perfect. Power plays. Brilliant. One of my all-time favorites.
Thermodynamics series by entanglednow: (Sherlock/John) Asexual romance. Dead owls beget strange bedfellows.
Sympathy for the Devil and Mycroft Holmes by scifigrl47: Author’s summary- Mycroft has always protected his younger brother. This is one of the best Mycroft characterizations I’ve found.
Equivalence by introductory: Author’s summary- Sometimes you’re Anthea, sometimes you’re Anthony, but you’re always still you. Anthea is genderfluid, and very few people understand. This was the fic that spurred my epiphany about being genderqueer. Realizing I didn’t have to choose was powerful.
