Title: бонус (Bonus)
Author: [personal profile] gardnerhill
Pairing: None
Length: 396 words
Rating: Gen
Warnings: None apply
Verse: My Dearly Beloved Detective
Author's summary: Freedom can reside in a simple change of clothes.

Reccer's comments: My Dearly Beloved Detective has a female Holmes (Shirley) and a female Watson (Jane) -- one of only a tiny handful of Holmesian 'verses with this configuration. This focuses on Jane, and how she practices at presenting more traditionally male, along with musings on male presentation as protection in sexist Edwardian London.

Title: Sacre Coeur
Author: Mamaorion
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Length: 127158 words (including appendices; actual story is around 95,000 words)
Rating: Mature
Verse: Sherlock BBC

Author's summary: Memories return. Old secrets are unearthed. Seven years of hidden love ignite. Who is behind the mind control, and how far back does it reach into Sherlock's past?

This multi-chapter patchwork fixit fic diverts from the path at season three and turns season 4 into a collage. This was the Johnlock I wanted. May it be healing for you, too.

Reccer's comments: This is marvelous storytelling, with twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It re-imagines Season 3 in a whole new light, and therefore Season 4 -- well. I don't want to give away too much. But the tale involves memory loss, secret organizations, and a backstory that includes Sherrinford as the third Holmes sibling (and what a delightful, if flawed, character he is.) Mary is a marvelous villain here, done in a way that I wish the show would have done. There are flashbacks to Sherlock's teenage years, where *everything* begins, and connects neatly with all the events in canon up to, and partially inclusive of, Series 3.

And of course, at the heart of it all is the love between Sherlock and John.

venusinthenight: sherlock and joan listening to a suspect (elementary - sherlock/joan judging you)

Title: (untitled single line-art drawing of Sherlock Holmes and Joan Watson)
Artist: [tumblr.com profile] ainosgarden
Pairing: Sherlock & Joan
Rating: Gen
Warnings: None
Verse: Elementary
Artist's summary: I know this is a bit late, but…

Happy Valentine’s Day to platonic life partners as well!

A single-line drawing of Joan and Sherlock from Elementary.

Reccer's comments: It's a very simple single-line art drawing. I like how Sherlock is sitting more "properly" with a single leg crossed in the loveseat, contrasting with Joan sitting with both legs crossed on the loveseat.
