Sherlock Rec!  
So I've been trying to do monthly rec posts for Harry Potter and Teen Wolf, since those are the fandoms I am pretty active in. But I do dabble in other fandoms, so if I read a fic that I want to add to my master rec-list, I'll probably just do I quick post as well. :)

Title: Performance in a Leading Role
Author: madlori | favicon Mad_Lori
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 156,714
Notes: AU: Hollywood, first time, secret relationship, switching
Summary: Sherlock Holmes is an Oscar winner in the midst of a career slump. John Watson is an Everyman actor trapped in the rom-com ghetto. When they are cast as a gay couple in a new independent drama, will they surprise each other? Will their on-screen romance make its way into the real world?

I just finished this fic today and it blew me away. It's been recced everywhere and I actually think it is one of the highest rated fics on Ao3, but I put off reading it because, not only is it extremely long, but it is an non-canon AU, and those can be hit or miss for me, but this fic was fan-freaking-tastic. The story is wonderful, the Hollywood background is AMAZING and so fleshed-out, and the connection between Sherlock and John is so believable. I loved the evolution of their relationship and how they were influenced by their careers, and the way the other characters are incorporated into the storyline is perfect. Plus, super hot switching sex! Seriously cannot recommend this fic enough!
