Summary: As John watched, Sherlock raised a pale hand, a still-smoldering cigarette balanced delicately between two of his long, elegant fingers. Barely daring to breathe, John watched as Sherlock’s sinfully full lips parted to accept the slim white stick before the tip flared suddenly red and Sherlock’s chest expanded with the acrid smoke. Not breaking eye contact, Sherlock tipped his head back slightly and exhaled a slow stream of grey, flicking the end of his cigarette with a neat thumbnail before quirking the edge of his lips up in an undeniable smirk.
Super sexy and fun!

Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: Explicit

Summary: There are first times for everything.
Beautiful post-S3 fic that deals with Sherlock and John coming together in the aftermath. I loved the characterizations in this and I thought John dealing with his feelings for Sherlock, a man and his best friend, was really well done.

Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: Explicit

Title: Barter System
Author: Anonymous
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 6,981
Content/Warnings: sherlock kink meme
Summary: The first time John notices Sherlock wearing one of his tee-shirts, he’s surprised. Not that Sherlock would invade John’s privacy and take whatever he liked for his own use, of course, John’s gotten used to that, irritating though it is. No, what surprises him is that it’s John’s clothes that Sherlock has decided to help himself to. And not to perform some kind of experiment on the melting point of cotton tee-shirts worn by ex-army doctors or something, just to wear.
I love this trope, and it was really well done here. :)

Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 7,644
Summary: John watches Sherlock wander through the flat staring at everything like it's all new, touching random objects as if they can tell him something he doesn't already know. Their eyes meet. They look away.
Wonderful post-Reichenbach fic (where Mary does not exist) that deals with John and Sherlock getting used to one another again. And ~feelings~. Very believable and beautifully written.

Title: Impossible Loyalties
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] achray
Pairing: Sherlock/John, past Sherlock/OMC
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 8,466
Content/Warnings: past teacher/student relationship, implied bottom!sherlock, talk of public!sex, talk of unsafe sex
Summary: ‘You were having sex with your tutor?’, John said, trying but doubtless failing not to sound either surprised or judgemental.
Takes place in a vaguely season 2 space, not especially canon-compliant.
I headcanon Sherlock as being somewhat experienced with sex, and I loved his sexual history here, especially with John's reactions to everything.

Title: His Almost Lover
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] writcraft
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John
Rating: Explicit

Such a good trusting D/s fic with some super hot bossy!Sherlock.

Title: Nights Become Days
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] pandoras_chaos
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 9,099
Content/Warnings: rimming, bottom!john, implied switching, recreational drug use
Summary: Sherlock was suspiciously quiet and when John finally chanced a glance at him, he was completely unsurprised to see Sherlock's eyes narrowed in concentration, moving through his usual deductive capabilities. John knew the exact moment Sherlock became aware of the entire situation, as his eyebrows shot up towards his hairline and he gasped a little oh before a furiously crimson blush infused his absurd cheekbones.
"John, I," Sherlock cleared his throat and visibly steeled himself. "John, I believe we may have had sexual intercourse last night."
John sighed and rubbed his face again. "Yep, I got there myself actually."
Seriously freaking hot sex. Heavily implied switching, but the explicit stuff is all John getting the fuck of his life.

Title: The Haunting of 221B Baker Street
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John
Rating: Mature
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.

Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 10,809
Notes: first time, rimming, table!sex, bottom!john, light foot!kink

Wonderful fic with great characterizations and some of the hottest sex ever!

Title: Anything For You
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] SailorChibi
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 11,886
Content/Warnings: D/s, dom!sherlock, sub!john
Summary: Sherlock knows a lot of things about John, even some things that John himself doesn't know. Like the fact that John loves taking orders from Sherlock. Of course, it would be much easier if John knew that, too. Fortunately, John is about to find out.
Wonderful fic exploring a relationship between Sherlock and John with some D/s elements.

Title: Flaunting It
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] DancingGrimm
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 12,179
Notes: established relationship, switching, bottom!john, bottom!sherlock, dirty talk

Title: The City of Dreams
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] bittergreens
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 12,908
Content/Notes: established relationship, bottom!john
Summary: Post-case sex is the best kind of sex. Just ask Sherlock Holmes.
In which John and Sherlock go to the opera, apprehend a criminal, and then return to their hotel room to have jubilant, endorphin-fueled, post-case sex.
Seriously hot fic with established Johnlock who obviously can't have sex while on a case, so the tension between them is off the charts. And of course, when the case is finally solved the smut is fabulously hot. :D There's also a sequel that I think switches things up, but it's unfinished so I haven't read it.

Title: What The Fuck Happened Last Night?
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] MirabileLectu
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 13,025
Warnings/Content: mind altering substance: alcohol, drunk!sex, morning after, light bondage, bottom!john, implied switching, rough sex, marking
Summary: There are several combinations of things that are known to have disastrous consequences for everyone involved. Seven bottles of wine, two very drunk flatmates, and one pair of handcuffs might just be the worst.
Crazy hot and fun fic, and wonderfully believable. This entry was originally posted here on Dreamwidth. Please comment there using OpenID
