AN: I had to sort this out in my head before I wrote this all down: basically, the characters of Sherlock (TV) writing RPF on the In-Universe Sherlock and John.

I can't actually explain the inclusion of the Mystrade. I'm not even sure how it happened. It just... appeared. The muse does work in curious ways.

Subject: Prompt Time!

It's time for that weekly writing exercise again, fellow shippers! Best one gets free pints at the Black Hound on the next night out (which should be more than enough prompting for any of you – except you Rance, you can have lemonade, what with the AA and all...) and fics are judged by the entirely unbiased hoop_the_loop over at 's see how much slash we can get out of this! (and het for the rare ones among you who write genderswap)

Remember, 221b format as always. Other than that, anything goes!

Prompt: this article they had in the Mail re: the Freak. John gets described as entirely too secretive about the two's supposed 'salacious' romantic life, with all sorts of 'sources close to the pair' insinuating gossip about two single men sharing a flat together. We all know what the Mail's like with things like this, but run with that. ;-)

Oh wow! Brilliant! I love your style, and your Sherlock is great!

just_tea_for_me
I hardly think Sherlock would be so melodramatic as to mope endlessly and with so much sighing and self-angsting over the prospect of unrequited love with John. Still, your writing does show some promise at least – your slash is still one of the more superior examples on the site, better than some of the other drivel I've had to trawl through.

You know exactly how to wind a man up don't you? You build it up until Sherlock's a squirming, writhing mess of gibbering sex-mad idiot, and then just leave it there for us to wait till you update! Tut tut, shame on you.

Mind you, I'm glad he doesn't know we write these, never mind read your particular brand smut; I think he'd be just a little bit offended if he knew his fictional self once professed ardently to "hunger for John's cock".

Reply: sergeant_sassy
What he doesn't know wont hurt him, will it? ;-) Anyway, it's just a bit of fun. And it's not like he'll ever find out that most of your division are secret Johnlock shippers who write scenarios about how much sex they're having inside the walls of Baker Street (and in taxis... and down alleyways... and in closets... ;-). He'd never come back to the crime scenes if he knew... well, having said that he probably would, actually. Freak's gotta get his kicks somehow.

Reply: silver_fox
We all know exactly how you think Sherlock gets his kicks, don't we? Mainly, getting buggered senseless by a certain army doctor. =)

On a tiny nitpicking note: you use the word "engorged" three times, and maybe adopt another word to describe thrusting? "Moaned wantonly" is also used twice. You can borrow my thesaurus tomorrow, I think I've got one somewhere.

And on that note, I hope that performance appraisal is going to be on my desk by 10. Super's on my back already as it is.

Subject: HELP!

Right, I'm partway through that fic I told you about on Thursday, bout 5k words now and counting, and it's turning out to be a bloody monster of a thing. Sherlock and John have had a major fight, of the throwing-plates and wanting to throttle some pale lanky idiot in a dark coat variety, that kind of bad fight. John's stormed off and gives Sherlock the silent treatment when he gets back (like the one we saw during that case couple of weeks back – what was it? The Copper Seaside? The Pewter Beaches?), and now Sherlock's trying to get back in his good books. I'm nearly done, I've already got the ending worked out, just can't get the dialogue down right. You know how it is sometimes.

Any suggestions?

Woohoo! Took my advice about the shagging senseless did you?

Reply: silver_fox
Surprisingly, Dimmock wrote the whole of that scene. Absolutely no shame, got to hand it to him, just nodded when I told him where the story was at and how it was going to end, and handed this smutty wonder on my desk this morning. His full stop skills have no shame either, which is a bit more distressing. Do you know how long it takes to edit his sentences?

Reply: sergeant_sassy
Ha ha, I can imagine. My sympathy.

Next chapter up of Unexpected Pleasure. And there seems to be an influx of newer RPF fic after that recent case of theirs, which is always a bonus. Can't blame them for being inspired to write it. People thought the Hounds case was bromantic – this one was like condensing the X-Files UST into one manageable half an hour crime scene.

Reply: silver_fox
Oh, that wasn't our division, think Bradstreet was covering it. Summary of the main gossip? I'll hear it in the staffroom on Monday anyway.

Reply: sergeant_sassy
John brushed Sherlock's hair out of his eyes at one point when the Freak was too deep in his bloody 'Mind Box' or whatever it is to notice. Also, Sherlock doing the whole alpha-male thing whenever an attractive man starts hitting on John. The Freak couldn't be more obvious if he tried. Poor Bradstreet didn't know what hit him when he complimented the man's jumper. You'll probably be getting a bill from his psychiatrist in a couple of weeks.

Rest assured, I will be writing some inspired fic. ;-)

John was such a BAMF! And the bit when he broke Seb's nose was completely priceless. Awesome!

just_tea_for_me
First off, have you ever actually studied the anatomy of the body? In case your tiny intellect didn't even think of straying onto Wikipedia to verse yourself in basic biology, let me inform you from the off that the heart cannot be taken out as though a mere trinket as you suggest – not only is there the primary stumbling block of the ribcage being in the way, but also the blood flow around the body would stop without any working valves. The consulting detective you therefore have swanning around London like a love-struck idiot, would drop down dead with a hole in his chest should your fic ever come to light.

Reply: BohemianSoul
It's an AU, darling. It's not meant to be completely realistic, a bit of playful fun. Utterly vanilla compared to my usual fare, you should be proud of me. And I thought I handled Sherlock's character rather well. In real life, though I of course don't know him as well or as intimately as I'd like to, he appears to fawn over John, ignoring all other women in the vicinity in favour of lusting after his short, yet totally oblivious flatmate.

Reply: just_tea_for_me
Jealous are we?

Reply: BohemianSoul
Not me, no. Goodness, I have far more tempting interests now I've settled. Marriage is a wonderful thing. But I would say Sherlock seems to be rather bitter around John's twittering little girlfriends, wouldn't you?

Authors

hobbitsizedbadass
One of the first authors to post in the fandom, asides from silver_fox and sergeant_sassy (also highly recommended). Started out writing first person POV John-centric Afghanistan-era fics, but has been moving away from that into writing realistic and well-written Sherlock/John (We think he even invented the term 'Johnlock', although it can't be proven). His AU fics include fandom classics like Hold the Fort, Scorched Earth and Desert Storm, all which revolve around John's growing attraction to Sherlock.

silver_fox
Johnlock shipper, and author of the fandom legend: Tick Tock Man, a Steampunk!AU with Sherlock and John (Holmes and Watson in this 'verse) kicking ass in an alternate Victorian London, aided by the BAMF Inspector Lestrade and the shy but equally BAMF school governess Miss Hooper. Now appearing to be permanently collaborating with under_my_umbrella penning very very M Mystrade fics. Oh so NSFW. Or anywhere public and not by a bunk tbh.

just_tea_for_me
Recent addition, but notable for precise details in deductions that would make the detective himself proud. While they have a habit of writing other characters (Anderson and Mycroft mostly) in an acerbic, almost 'bashing' manner, their Johnlock UST is so heartfelt and emotionally wrenching, something to read and weep at with a box of issues by your side.

Just wanted to drop a note and say how much I love your fics, especially the Experiments arc you've got going on. Maybe in your next oneshot, you could have Sherlock finally getting on with it and expressing his intentions so John doesn't have to decode anymore conflicting signals. Sherlock's not exactly making it easy for John in these fics.

Reply: just_tea_for_me
I would think in the real world, should this pairing actually have any grounding, that John should instead make it clearer to Sherlock that his intentions and affections would be reciprocated before something so serious was admitted rashly and without due thought and consideration. Human emotions are after all difficult to decipher. and erratic at best.

I found the subject matter of this story tastefully dealt with, not some of the maudlin angsting tripe one finds on other sections of the site. I've seen more well-structured Mills & Boon than I have some of the poorly written 'Johnlock'. Sherlock thankfully hasn't been portrayed as a completely useless and pathetic in lusting after his flatmate, which is laudable characterisation entirely detached from the man's true character. Some minor grammatical issues (really, have you ever been acquainted with the comma?), but other than that, relatively commendable.

Reply: hobbitsizedbadass
'Relatively commendable'. You do spoil me with your praise, you do ;-) Cheers though for the feedback, and thanks for the heads up on the grammar issue – having no beta reader does mean that all self-editing is under my own (poor) management =(.

[New PM] from just_tea_for_me
Notes on the newest chapter of Aim, Fire that you sent through on Monday evening. Apologises for the delay in the feedback, I have been unfortunately held up with some rather pressing matters at work which required my full and utmost attention.

Your comma skills are improving rapidly, so I would congratulate you on that front – even if your paragraphing does still resemble sardines in that you seem to be trying to restrict your writing to as few pages as is logically possible. And Comic Sans! Have you completely taken leave of your faculties. Size 11 Times New Roman, is fine and SPACING WITH DIALOGUE!

Asides from that, I think there is only one section of this text I would query:

John breathes warm air onto the gooseflesh of Sherlock's skin, hearing the man murmuring gently in his sleep. He knows if he could compose great songs, odes and melodies, then he would make them sound like Sherlock, a replica in sound: a vibrant whirl of tempo and strings, and then, mid-way, the lessening of the drum-beats to the boomboom of a heartbeat, the soft aria of inhaling and exhaling, predictable as tide. He wonders if the heat of his breath, the rhyme of his heartbeat transferring through closeness to Sherlock's chest, could seep into the man's pores, fill him up, taking on John's heartbeat, lungs expanding in sync. He wonders if he's still himself at all anymore, if he's not become co-dependant, so much so that he needs this marble man by his side, a whirring mind and a ticking heart so brash with love. He wonders if he'd mind very much to find out that was the case...

I understand the needs for poetics, and can put up with the insufferable poetry inspired prose – please try and remember you aren't Wordsworth, and don't even try to emulate Keats at any point – but 'brash with love'? Do you really feel a man like Sherlock Holmes even allows himself to admit how much he is in love?

Maybe you should change this?

[New PM] from hobbitsizedbadass
S'ok mate, this week's been an absolute nightmare this end as well, stupidly hectic, and of course, my mad man of a flatmate hasn't helped either. I'm just glad it's all over and I can get back to writing.

I can see what you're saying about Sherlock as a character – but I'd have to disagree with you. I do think he can love, violently and utterly; because he... well, he appears to be at least... a man who doesn't do anything by halves, isn't able to, would never want to. Of course he has the capability of love, and I highly doubt he is so removed from society to cut himself off all forms of affection open to humans.

Everyone mentions the Great Game and the clearly obvious slash in John's Blog, and they're right, Sherlock does have a heart and he would be a fool to deny such a thing. I'm sure IRL if he just said something or made it clear his whole body wasn't 'transport' to him, that John would never even think to reject his proposal of mutual attraction.
