A Common Mistake by scrub456 reviews
A ridiculous bit of adventure. For the residents of 221b, it doesn't always make sense to do things the easy way. (Characters and their actions may appear OOC, with intent.)

Turn Left - The Veteran's House by Soledad reviews
What if John never met Mike Stamford at the park? Would his ways and Sherlock's ever cross? AU, featuring a great deal of OCs.

Wrong by AutumnAtMidnite reviews
Wherein John Watson puts his foot down when it comes to a certain habit of his new flat mate, and in so doing, proves Sherlock Holmes to be very wrong. Rated for mentions of drug use & language.

Saving Grace by navigatio reviews
Mary is dead, drowned in the Cherwell, leaving behind a grieving John and baby daughter. And then there's Sherlock, who has no idea how to help. Contains character death, 1 big case and 2 small cases, pointless sentiment, and an epic friendship between two blokes who really don't know how to talk about their feelings. Chapter 24/24: Acceptance. Compleeeeete!

It takes John Watson to save your life by Ernil i Pheriannath reviews
A series of One shots where John saves Sherlock's life in so many ways. Will be updated sporadically as and when I get any time to write. As always I like my characters hurt, so plenty of angst, H/C, whump and bromance (no slash) will ensue. Please review if you can.

The Adventure of the Reigate Ritual by Vivat Musa reviews
221b ASAP. Dying. SH PS: Need milk. That was the text that sent me from Lyons, France to Baker Street, London in twenty-four hours. The punctuation and post-script should have been enough to warn me not to overreact, but I was focused more on the third word. Also, asking for milk while on his deathbed seemed like the dickish thing that Sherlock Bloody Holmes would do.

Reversal by scrub456 reviews
Sherlock is perched on the ledge. Lazarus is ready. Something goes horribly wrong. The wrong man ends up taking the fall. Nothing is as it seems. *A Reichenbach Conspiracy*

fantastically, wildly improbable by scrub456 reviews
John stops a suspect from escaping. Sherlock thinks he's an idiot. Everyone else thinks he's some sort of superhero. It's all in the perspective. (This is a rather over the top bit of case-fic adventure. Rated T because John gets sweary.)

Gun Safety by scrub456 reviews
Sherlock really has no clue when it comes to the proper handling of a firearm. Fortunately for him, John does, and he's determined to teach Sherlock everything he knows. Even if it kills them both.

Prove it to me by scrub456 reviews

Enemies and Different Sides by Hekate1308 reviews
I'd grown accustomed to the fact that Moriarty was Sherlock's polar opposite. I'd not been prepared to meet mine in Colonel Moran. John reflects after the capture of Sebastian Moran. Post-Reunion.

The Empty Home by chai4anne reviews
Sherlock would always be haunted by memories of one particular case. The first body, its once-so-familiar features blurred by the passing of time and death, moved him more than he would ever have expected. But the worst was the skeleton he uncovered later, bits of hair and clothes still clinging to it—which had no effect on him whatever, until he looked up and saw John's face.
