THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR ALL EPISODES OF SHERLOCK SERIES 3 (THE EMPTY HEARSE, THE SIGN OF THREE, AND HIS LAST VOW)
ithinkthereforeisherlock: Hello, lovely followers! As many of you may have seen, I did a post last week - before HLV aired - rounding up some fics that had already been written about TEH and TSoT. I wanted to fill out that post some more, and include HLV as well. There has been more written about the first two episodes as well, so I’ve included everything that was on the first post, as well as some additional fics, here. Enjoy, and happy reading!
The Empty Hearse
Thirteen by lifeonmars
There are thirteen possible ways to approach John Watson, and none of them are right.
You Can(‘t) Switch The Bomb Off and You Didn’t Call The Police? by pennypaperbrain
Of course he called the police. That just means the police are about to die, with them, if Sherlock doesn’t solve this. He’s overreached himself. Wanted to impress John by solving everything and waltzing away just as the police turned up to attend to the minor practical issues. Impressing John, moment by moment, keeps John needing him.
Unexpected Consequences by flawedamythyst
As lovely as it was to be back on the case with John, Sherlock couldn’t help noticing that things weren’t quite right between them yet.
Begin Again by mazarin221b
Much as they began and ended they begin again.
All In by missilemuse
Mary had never expected to meet Sherlock Holmes, never expected to come face to face with the man John had placed on a pedestal in his heart, a place she could never even touch, much less dream of usurping. She was completely fine with that. She did not want to be John’s God; she wanted to be his wife.
Cats and Dogs by Emcee
Molly has a dog. Dogs are loyal, sweet and nice. But Molly always loved rude, selfish and standoffish cats.
The Sign of Three
Tiebreaker by earlgreytea68
John Watson is always aware of where Sherlock Holmes is. Sherlock shouldn’t have stopped for his coat on his way out.
Unexpected Sentiment by flawedamythyst
Stamford stayed home and got drunk rather than go to John’s wedding.
Sky on Fire by what_alchemy
After John’s wedding, Sherlock catches an overnight train to Scotland.
suddenly I meet your face by coloredink
"I don’t sit in your chair," said Sherlock. "It’s yours."
Yellow Diamonds by mazarin221b
There’s an eternity between the time they find themselves on the stairs and the rest of the night.
Of all the selfish things that Sherlock has done, this one is so outrageous and so courageous John is at a loss as to what to say. He knows he wants it, knows whatever it is Sherlock is offering will only happen once. So he slides across the ocean of cool blue sheet and pins Sherlock down with a kiss, leaning on his elbows with his hands wrapped around Sherlock’s shoulders.
Sequelae by hitlikehammers
The truth is, Sherlock’s coming apart at the seams. He needs—he needs, but they can’t all dance.
The truth is, they need just as much, just as desperately. The truth is, he hides far too well, and they’re clever, they are, but they’re blind: they’re not him.
And the truth is: John and Mary don’t see until it may be too damned late.
Stag Do by rubyofkukundu
Sherlock and John are both drunk. What happens after Mrs Hudson ushers them back up into the flat?
If You’ll Have Us by fifthnorthumberland
Three weeks after their wedding, they give Sherlock a ring.
Unspoken by SilentAuror
Ten minutes before the wedding ceremony. Sherlock decides he has something to say at the last minute.
The Rising Tide by SilentAuror
John is dreaming. Outside the cottage in Brighton, the tide is rising.
Boundless by destinationtoast
Sherlock may have misunderstood about there being limits.
Scars by mildredandbobbin
On his honeymoon, John starts receiving anonymous texts with increasingly disturbing images. He discovers how much he doesn’t know about Sherlock’s time away.
Set post-TSoT, pre-HLV. Spoilers for TSoT, speculation for HLV.
Have To Take You In by achray
Four brief alternate endings for ‘The Sign of Three’. In which whatever else Sherlock is up to immediately after the wedding, he is *not taking drugs in 221B on his own* (as he implicitly does in ACD canon at the end of ‘The Sign of Four’). I will FIX IT. Chapters 1 and 2 are gen, friendship, chapter 3 is slash or pre-slash, chapter 4 is explicit John/Mary/Sherlock: each can be read separately or together.
(i’m happy just to) dance with you by trustingno1
"This," John says, grinning a little helplessly, "is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever done."
Sherlock pulls the curtains closed, pulls them closed so John won’t have to ask, allows a corner of his mouth to curl up in genuine amusement. “Yet here you are.”
I’m You, Aren’t I by AxeMeAboutAxinomancy
What would have happened had Mrs Hudson thought better of bringing a client up when she knew the boys were pissed on John’s stag night?
His Last Vow
The Eastern Wind Leaves With These Words by homeswinchesterwatson
They stand facing each other on the run way, but does it really need saying?
They’re Putting Me Down Too by pocketsebastian
He’s seven when he comes home with scabby knees and a bruised cheek.
Kept the Hives by aderyn
They did name her Sherlock.
Human Error by lily_winterwood
Silly John. Did he ever know? Did he need everyone to spell it out for him? Spoilers for “His Last Vow”.
Unseated by moonblossom
She’s in John’s chair again, and it’s all wrong.
In The Bleak Winter (A Canticle for Advent) by CaitlinFairchild
Sherlock Holmes was shot in the autumn of 2014. This is what happened after.
Good Man by elsmaster
John Watson is not an evil man, but sometimes he does wonder.
A House of Many Rooms by Lothiriel84
"You were there in my mind palace, telling me what to do."
A Boy’s Best Friend by second_skin
Sherlock’s father gave him a puppy. It changed his life.
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.
Meant To Be by Mianmaru (~10k)
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.
Drouk by Alma_Anor, merripestin (~16k)
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.
Interval by berlynn_wohl (~3k)
"You shouldn’t leave the window open in your state. It’s dangerous.”
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.

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?”
