I've been lurking in Sherlock fanfic for about a year. I finally got an account so I can properly thank the many terrific authors here for sharing their talents.

I'm a mom of youngsters and have a demanding job; my brief escapes to ficland help keep me sane!

Silver Blaze by LittlePippin76 reviews
Based on the ACD story Silver Blaze, but with the BBC characters, and my own spin.

Ten chapters, some hurt and comfort, some angst, some humour, some friendship. Now complete.

Coming Full Circle by KCS reviews
"Beautiful, isn't it?" he inquires with admiration at his own handiwork, as Sherlock gently arranges the doctor in the recovery position.

What Meets the Eye by worldaccordingtofangirls reviews
Amnesia is just another case to solve. In fact, it's a challenge that Sherlock could even enjoy. It's easy, really; he can deduce it all. The tottering old lady is his housekeeper. The man with the silver hair, his boss. The worried girl..infatuated. And as for John Watson? His husband. Obviously.

Necessary Faith by Alecto Perdita reviews
[Part 1 of "Too narrow a space to live"] Mary Morstan is a hunter of the supernatural sort and John isn't sure what to make of that. Nothing about life without Sherlock Holmes makes much sense anyway. At least hunting the things that go bump in the night gives him a sense of purpose again. Post-Reichenbach; minor crossover with Supernatural

Sick Fic by LittlePippin76 reviews
Sick Fics are my guiltiest pleasure. I've read many, so if you've written one, you've inspired me. This is my take on how I think Sherlock would react to a poor poorly John. Characters are not mine. Have fun.
