I was tagged by myk-myk-myk
Rules: In a text post, list ten FICS that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” works, or even all the same pairing or fandom, just the fics that have touched you or that stuck with you somehow. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!
I thought it will be difficult because I read almost only PWPs, but as it turns out I don’t.
A Silver Sixpence, by _doodle, John/Sherlock,
John, we need to get married.
This one I’ve read in 2011 when I was new to Sherlock fandom but it’s still one of my favourites.
Reaction, by blind_author, eventual John/Sherlock, JimJohn Non-con
Moriarty raped John that night before Sherlock came to the pool. Aftermath, hurt/comfort
When I first read it, it was the first time I’ve ever read a fic like this, I mean I’ve of course read hurt/comfort rape-aftermath fics but they didn’t seem as carefully written and were not as well written as this one.
Software Malfunction, tiger_in_the_flightdeck, John/Sherlock, space opera au
Assigned as the head of Medical Research on the Baker, John Watson meets- and quickly falls in love with- Sherlock, a specially commissioned Companion android with a malfunction.
I can’t even talk about this one, it wrecked me. When I finished it I was in McDonald’s, eating breakfast, I remember it was Friday after my early-ass lecture, so I was sitting, my phone in one hand, hash brown in the other, and I was crying because of this fic. Nomming while sobbing, yay.
Enduring, Aloneindarknes7, Non-con Thorin/Bilbo, implied unconsummated Bilbo/Bofur. Mpreg.
Thorin is a dick, he takes Bilbo for a sex-slave to breed himself an army of heirs. Gentle guardian Bofur who takes care of Bilbo, is in fact his only friend and only person that’s concerned for his well being.
This one also had broken me, but in a satisfying way. Thorin is a sick bastard that you hate, just the way I like (because I hate him even more than Mycroft and that’s telling), you feel absolutely heartbroken over Bilbo’s fate and sorry about him and Bofur and how impossible the happy end is. Also, it have mpreg, you know that I have a soft spot for mpreg right?
The Espresso is My Savior, I Shall Not Want, ShaneAndrew, Bilbo/Bofur, Coffee shop au
Every writer needs a good coffee shop, and Bilbo Baggins thinks the little family-owned place in the center of downtown is just the environment he needs to help him write his book - an epic tale of unexpected adventures and the like…
This one is just sweet and relaxing comparing to the above one. Bofur is a barista/waiter in a little Coffee shop he owns with Bombur and Bifur, Bilbo is a customer and aspiring writer. Romantic shmoop asdfghjkl…
Arthur’s Secret, dragoninatrenchcoat, gen, Arthur and Martin (in no-shippy-way)
Martin discovers something about Arthur he never would have guessed.
This one is really short but it made such an impression on me that… Just whoa. I still remember it, how subtly creepy it was and that unanswered question “WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?!” (I don’t want to spoil fun to anyone, but I suppose you shouldn’t read it if you don’t like blood)
Somewhere Deep in the Dark, EverlivingGhosts, Arthur/Martin, Carolyn/Herc
It was supposed to be a routine flight through Russia, but the crew find themselves in an impossible situation. With a crash landing looming, will G-ERTI be able to perform? And Russia in the winter can be a cold, dark place…
I remember I was so scared when I first read this. I was worried they’re not gonna make it… It keeps you in suspence, this one!
Taction, Kalimyre, Arthur/Martin
Arthur notices that Martin has problem with being touched. He loves helping, so he helps.
I’ve first found out about this one via iyori’s beautiful fanart.
From me, but never to you, RuleBritannia, Arthur/Martin
Real love is wanting you to be happy
Arthur writes a letter to Martin, the one he doesn’t intend to send. Sad but really good.
Contents May Have Shifted, thirdbird, Arthur/Martin
Martin gets stuck in the flight deck locker with Arthur. More than once.
This one is sweet and funny, never fails to cheer me up
Found, f-m-r-l, Holmes/Watson
What if Watson had literally become immortal?
Today au with a twist, I’m not gonna lie this one is my all time favourite
When Holmes played his violin, he became somebody else.
Erotic, sensual. Even musical.
Oops it may be more than 10, but whatever.
Everyone already did it, so I’m tagging no-one. If you wish to do it, do it and you can tag me so I can see it :)
