does anyone remember pennydredful’s fic A Taste of Murder where Sherlock was essentially eating out girls from some assassin gang to deduce which one was the murderess from their pubes?
that was hella hot fic
With new “real rape” laws in place, every unbonded omega is at risk, including Sherlock Holmes. He needs someone to help protect him and hide his true nature, but John Watson may be more of a problem than a solution.
Three years after Sherlock fakes his death, he receives a text from Mycroft telling him it is time to come home. But the text doesn’t give the whole story. Not by half.

How is John supposed to know what is happening with him, in a world where Alphas and Omegas are almost non-existent?
Held in trust by PlainJane (~29k)
John believed he would never have an alpha. Sherlock knew he could never keep an omega. Seventeen years is a long time to wait to learn just how wrong you can be.
A Question of Intent by Mildredandbobbin (~22k)
Sherlock was on the bed, naked, writhing, tangled in the sheets, on all fours and apparently in the full throes of a Heat. So very not good, the non-lizard part of John’s brain was saying — the enlightened 21st Century, reconstructed Alpha part, the part that supported Omega contra-heat, equality, pro-choice, the Omega rape legislation and general gender liberation. The part that knew Sherlock did not, obviously did not, want to copulate with him and certainly did not want to bond.

While Sherlock and John are being held prisoner by Moriarty, John goes into heat. Jim chains them up just out of reach of each other and plays with John himself.
Ours by KeelieThompson1 (~76k) ♥♥♥
John is an omega who has been on heat suppressants his entire life. When Sherlock realises this and shows an interest in John, they have to work their way through the problems caused by John having never had a real heat in his life.
It’s Just Not On by dorothydonne (~6k)
John and Sherlock are attracted to each other, but it’s just not natural. Two alphas? You may as well be trying to breed llamas with chickens.
Calculated Pain by Durrant (~20k)
John Watson is an omega, but he has no intention of belonging to some alpha. He is going to get an education and become a doctor, if that means that his alpha is out there alone somewhere then that’s hardly his concern.
Beats of Three by Belladonna_Q (~24k)
Sherlock is an Alpha, John a Beta. Driven by an instinct to mate and protect, Sherlock and John spend Sherlock’s Rut together… with an unintended consequence.
Civil Disobedience by JayEz for merlenhiver (~29k)
Sherlock has been living as an Alpha his entire live. It doesn’t pose a problem – until a unit of the Reformist movement led by Captain John Watson kidnaps him and denies Sherlock his meds.
Late Bloomer by Mommybird (~6k)
Holmes men tended to bloom late. Sherlock, however, is an unfruitful vine.
He’s decided to just be himself, cliché as it sounds. The lie about being Sherlock’s mate will be difficult enough to keep up, he’s not going to think up more of a charade regarding himself on top of that.
If he uses the wrong fork at dinner, fine. If someone calls him on it, he’ll just stab them with it. Job done.
The Reluctant Bonded by corpsereviver2 (~16k)
When Sherlock had turned twelve and was considered old enough to be told of such matters, his father had explained that it was the nature of the Omega to be in orbit like the Earth around the stronger, sun-like Alpha who had the responsibility to nurture the weaker mate. Since that lecture, Sherlock had no good opinion of either bonding or astronomy and had decided to ignore the existence of them both as wholly irrelevant.

Sell Out by Unloyal_Olio (~4k)
Omega!Sherlock has hidden his status all his life. Still, he has to let himself go into heat at least once every 18 months or so. After alpha!John moves in that becomes a problem. Finally, Sherlock arranges for John to be out of the country for his upcoming heat.
…John comes home early.
Mummy, No Thank You by Unloyal_Olio (~20k)
Mummy Holmes arranges a marriage for Sherlock. Since Sherlock refuses to meet anyone properly, she must go to one of the breeding camps where older omegas are kept. She finds John Watson. Sherlock and John get along fine, but Sherlock refuses to marry and breed. Mummy decides that John should marry and breed with Mycroft if Sherlock doesn’t want to. Sherlock is not happy at all. Thus, a p0rny, case-ficky, dark comedy.
Sweet Surrender by Supernatural4ever (~10k)
Omega!John & Alpha!Sherlock
The Decree by Sulla (~14k)
Omegaverse where there are popluation problems and omegas have to have children. John is outed as an Omega and Sherlock tries to convince John that they could be happy together if they mated.
This pretty much summarizes the general plot of Omegaverse fics, as seen on the Sherlock BBC Kink Meme.

He sipped his long-cold tea before dropping his cigarette into the chipped, mint-green cup. It extinguished with a hiss. Sherlock blew on the ink to dry it and then folded the letter, stuffing it into an envelope. He composed a P.S. in his head.
You wouldn’t be proud of me. I steal morphine from people who need it.
Atonement Crossover - John/Sherlock - NC-17 - This part R
finding well written fanfiction for your OTP
finding out it’s multichapter AND completed
When the doorbell rings at 221B Baker Street, Mrs. Hudson, on a well-deserved holiday out in the country, is not around to answer. Thus, Sherlock Holmes, grumbling, clad only in his dressing gown, is forced to endure the humiliation of shuffling downstairs and opening the door himself.
“Um,” says the rather attractive deliveryman, who is wearing the customary deliveryman hat and holding a square cardboard box. “Pizza for Sherlock Holmes?”
“What kind?” Sherlock barks.
“Extra sausage, Mr. Holmes,” the deliveryman says, looking at the bill. “Just like you… ordered…”
“Don’t just stand there like an idiot,” Sherlock says. “When I ask for extra sausage, I mean extra sausage. The last two times I’ve ordered pizza from you—”
“—an absolutely unacceptable amount of sausage—”
“Um, Mr. Holmes?”
“—and I’ve already spoken to your superior about the cheese—”
“For God’s sake, Sherlock!” says John Watson, tearing off the deliveryman hat and throwing it to the ground out of frustration. “You know, for someone who has so many costumes, you are spectacularly bad at roleplaying.”
“John?” Sherlock says, but John has already pushed past him and started up the stairs, pizza box and all. “John, I was merely getting into character.” He follows John back into their flat. “Would you prefer the fireman outfit? John?”
EVERY FANDOM NEEDS MORE FANTASY AUS
Okay, but seriously I keep seeing people reply to this with comments like, “I can’t find any good fantasy AUs ARE THEY OUT THERE?!”
In Sherlock fandom, go to AO3 and check out random_nexus, bendingsignpost, cypress_tree, you_light_the_sky, mamishka, lindentreeisle, winter_of_our_discontent, shiny_n_new, nox_candida, lavvyan, tashilover, and skarabrae.
I know there are more, but they stand out to me on a quick sweep through my bookmarks, and I’m too hungry to do a deeper search at the moment. It should keep you for a while anyway. ^_^
(You can also find most of these ladies and gentlemen on Tumblr, if you convert the underscore to a dash. Mamishka is the-mamishka, and you_light_the_sky is youlighttheskyfanfiction. <—Particularly recommend this one as they’re in the habit of posting ficlets to Tumblr.)
I didn’t check to see if anyone else posted this yet, but SherlockBBCFicRecs recently posted an amazing collection of these too that I wish I could reblog: http://sherlockbbcficrecs.tumblr.com/post/57309997958/
Yes, because all fan-fic is well written, and all JohnLock is as good as anything that’s won the Pulitzer Prize. The main problem with fan-fic isn’t the material, it’s the fact that it’s written by fucking idiots who just want the main characters to fuck. If it’s neither of those things, and is well-written, then it’ll probably be good. It’s as simple as that. Get off your high-horse, you total fucking asshole.
Hi, Jack. Can I call you Jack?
It’s fanfic. Not fan-fiction, not fan fiction, not “fanfiction” in quotes. Fanfiction, fanfic, or just fic. That’s what we call it. That’s what it is.
The argument that all fanfiction is Pulitzer-worthy is not an argument that appears anywhere in this essay. What does appear is a list of Pulitzer-winning, acclaimed, and beloved works that can best be described as doing exactly what fanfiction does. The reason we’re listing them out here is because many people think that fanfiction is plagiarism, theft, illegal infringement, or to quote one person’s words to me directly, “the devil’s work.”
But I’m so glad that you don’t think fanfic suffers from any of those problems because clearly they were just distracting me from the real issue. Thank you so much for explaining to me that all fanfiction is written by fucking idiots who just want the main characters to fuck.
But for your well-positioned advice, I might have assumed that the Sacrifices arc by Lightning on the Waves, who has spent nearly a decade rewriting the entire Harry Potter series in order to completely deconstruct and critique the class, race, and social structures that JK Rowling built, was something worth talking about.
I mean, it’s one of the longest works of fiction ever written; it’s longer than Proust. It’s got hundreds of original characters on top of the giant cast of Harry Potter, and but for your timely arrival I might have thought it was a painstaking reworking of plot and a profound exploration of character.
The author’s stated purpose is, “I’ve tried to take several clichés (among them Harry being Sorted into Slytherin and having a twin brother who is deemed to be the Boy-Who-Lived) and write a story that’s both good and has rounded characterization.” But I guess the author was lying and she really just wanted to see Harry fuck someone, and all those three million words were just about fucking. I mean, after all, you said so.
But, thank god, you got here just in time to tell me this was just a shitty piece of dreck by an author who wants two characters to bone.
Or this House of Leaves/Inception crossover. It has anagrams, puzzles, hovertext, careful page formatting in the style of Danielewski, reversed text, and an intricate layering of two universes over one another in ways that amplify and transform both. But I guess it’s just trashy porn and not a clever example of literary remix culture, right, because—
—I mean, you’re so sure and I’m sure you’ve carefully examined the opinions of hundreds, if not thousands, of other people who agree with you on this subject—whereas I’m just a woman and a fucking idiot and an asshole, that’s what you said, yeah?, who actually reads this detritus.
