This batch of recs is for Sherlock BBC. Fics are slash and het with some gen mixed in. Ratings vary. Please always check fic headers and tags for warnings.
Six Minions and a Scarf by misura (Mycroft Holmes/Greg Lestrade)
This is lots of fun. Basically what happens when Mycroft tries to take care of his sick-with-the-cold lover (and of course overdoes it). Executed in misura's lovely style.
Five Times John Talked to Mummy (and one time he didn't) by coloredink (Serlock Holmes/John Watson, Mummy)
This is sweet and funny in turns! Interestingly enough, Sherlock and John don't interact that much in this. The central interaction is, as the title would suggest, between John and Mummy Holmes and it's really fascinating how John and Sherlock's relationship and Sherlock's relationship with his mother come to light and John and Mummy's relationship develops. The entire thing is very well written to boot.
walk through ghosts by augustbird (Serlock Holmes/John Watson, John Watson/Mary Morstan)
This fic isn't compliant to S3 as it was written before that season aired but it's still such a lovely and heartbreaking read! Everyone is great in this - Sherlock, Mary (who's a little different that S3 Marry of course but it hardly matters when you get to reading this). It's emotional and feels very real. I'm kind of bad at describing the sort of feelings this kind of fic evokes, but it's definitely the sort of work that gets you on an emotional level.
