March Sherlock Recs

AKA that time when Grace finally discovered how much she loves earlgreytea68's writing, and decided to work through her entire masterlist. Literally the only author being recced here, but she inspired some serious reading...

[Sherlock: John/Sherlock]Title: The Haunting of 221B Baker Street
Author: earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John
Rating: R
Word Count: 10,388
Content/Notes: major character death, ghost!fic, ghost!sherlock
Summary: In which Sherlock Holmes is a ghost.
Really unique fic with Sherlock having actually died after Reichenbach and haunting 221B. Definitely some melancholy themes, but I thought the ending was suitably satisfying.

Title: Working the Edges
Author: earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John, background Lestrade/Mycroft
Rating: R
Word Count: 56,089
Content/Notes: AU: Sports, AU: Olympics
Summary: No matter where you put Sherlock and John, they click. Including the Winter Olympics.
Really lovely, charming read. John was aces as a hockey player, and I really liked Sherlock as a figure skater. It definitely felt very much like them, even though they were at the Olympics. Sweet, relatively light read.

Title: Letters Series (5 Fics)
Author: earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John
Rating: R
Word Count: 71,463
Content/Notes: implied switching
Summary: While he's dead, Sherlock writes John letters.
Lovely post-Reichenbach series with a gorgeous amount of feels. Adored John and Sherlock's relationship here and how clearly, absolutely in love they were. Some sadder themes, but they were all handled really beautifully.

Title: Saving Sherlock Holmes
Author: earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John, background Lestrade/Mycroft
Rating: R
Word Count: 139,494
Content/Notes: AU: Boarding School, AU: Alternate First Meeting, underage
Summary: Sherlock Holmes, schoolboy. Yeah, that basically sums it up.
Wonderful Sherlock AU that takes place when Sherlock is a teenager. This has a very canon feel, but it essentially plays with the idea of, what if Sherlock met John sooner? How would that have changed things for him? I adore the way canon events and characters are incorporated in here, and the relationship between all of the characters is just wonderfully done. Really awesome read!

Title: Baseball Series (4 Fics)
Author: earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John
Rating: R
Word Count: 146,072
Content/Notes: AU: Sports
Summary: Sherlock Holmes is a pitcher and John Watson is a catcher. No, no, no, it's a baseball AU.
I was a little skeptical of this one, since baseball is such an American sport, and NOT one I can picture Sherlock playing, but it totally works! The author does a brilliant job with the characterizations, so it really feels like Sherlock and John playing baseball. Fun and charming read that just flew by.

Title: Nature and Nurture Series (6 Fics)
Author: earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John, background Lestrade/Mycroft
Rating: R
Word Count: 220,445
Content/Notes: kid!fic, parentlock, babylock, marriage!fic
Summary: The British Government accidentally clones Sherlock Holmes. Which brings a baby to 221B Baker Street.
Oh this is such a lovely series! Little Baby Oliver (aka Clone Sherlock) is too freaking cute, and I just adored the relationship between John and Sherlock. They figure things out relatively quickly, which means we gets lots and lots of awesome domestic, relationship goodness! Sherlock is maybe a smidgen fanon-y, but he was really wonderful in the fic, and seeing him with his new little family was fabulous.
