Author has written 33 stories for Sherlock, and X-Files.

Fanfic is the proverbial candy store! So many stories, so little time! Take your pick of my contributions and enjoy! Feedback is welcome.


A.N: The Sherlock stories listed below have been categorized by casefic or introspective-character study and are in chronological order according to the episodes' timeline and seasons. Only the dates at the end of each synopsis tells you when I actually wrote the story. All I can say is that later works are an improvement over my earlier works, (let the reader beware) but so as to get the general feel of my perspective of this BBC Sherlock Universe, I am not deleting any stories from this fanfiction site. I hope this guide will be helpful in introducing new readers to this series of fanfiction stories.

Original Casefics: Canon compliant with BBC Sherlock and written BEFORE Season 4

BBC Sherlock: Working Backwards

A look backwards: About a year before TRF, Sherlock and John share an adventure to discover the connections between a ghost story and the case of eleven inebriated men. At the same time, the detective and the doctor discover significant connections between their working relationship and meaningful friendship. No fluff nor slash, but insights abound. As usual, all disclaimers apply. Published: 3/20/2015 - Updated: 3/20/2015 - Complete

BBC Sherlock: Epiphany

Nearly a year with his eccentric flatmate and John Watson is still learning what it means to live and work with the genius of Sherlock Holmes. Borrowing the time frame and characterizations from the BBC Sherlock series, this little fanfic tells their enduring story. I hope you will find the ending justifies the means. Please enjoy. Published: 1/2/2015 - Updated: 1/2/2015 - Complete (As of Season 4, this now an AU.)

BBC Sherlock: Parlor Tricks

Sherlock and John acquire an understanding about each other whilst solving the mystery of a man who stepped "back into his own house to get his umbrella and was never more seen in this world." Based on an "unfinished tale" referenced by Watson in ACD's "The Problem of Thor Bridge," this story is set more than a year into the partnership of the BBC characters. Published: 2/1/2015 - Updated: 2/1/2015 - Complete

BBC Sherlock: The Case of the FLAT-OUT Adventure

The enduring relationship between Sherlock and John can be seen in many subtle ways; how they work together, how they play together, how they understand each other, and how little they need to talk about it. Not a mystery, but an ADVENTURE, this fic examines the nuances of these extraordinary characters on what might be considered an ordinary day. Takes place before TRF.

Introspective-character studies: Canon compliant with BBC Sherlock written BEFORE Season 4

BBC Sherlock: Welcome to London!

One shot: This is a story about a detective and his friend, not a detective story. At 22 Northumberland Street, Sherlock and John sprang from Angelo's Italian restaurant when the taxi pulled from the kerb-and thus commenced their first adventure as partners. This one-shot pays homage to the "lightness of being" true friends in an enduring relationship. All Disclaimers Apply. Published: 5/28/2015 - Updated: 5/28/2015 - Complete

333333

BBC Sherlock: UNSUMMONED

"Blood is thicker than water," except when it comes to Sherlock Holmes. When "BLUD," to all intents and purposes, seemed to have failed the detective in THE REICHENBACH FALL, John Watson chooses to soldier up, face their enemy together, and summon the courage to protect his friend. This series revisits the tragic scenes in TRF from John's POV. (T for language in later chapters) Published: 9/5/2015 - Updated: 11/24/2015 - Complete

333333

BBC Sherlock: So Many Times

Sherlock admitted in The Empty Hearse that he had nearly contacted John so many times. So what prevented the cleverest man in the whole world from delivering even one word to let John know he was alive? (As usual, all disclaimers regarding ACD and the BBC series apply.) Special thanks to my blessing/beta/friend englishtutor and her indefatigable talent for cheering me on.Published: 6/21/2015-Updated: 6/21/2015 - Complete

333333

BBC Sherlock: Unspoken Subtexts from The Empty Hearse

Another of my earliest works. Scenes and Subtexts from The Empty Hearse. What were John's thoughts after discovering Sherlock was alive? What were Sherlock's after John's rejection? Each chapter inserts words not spoken that explore how their friendship survives The Fall. (Faithful to the BBC series with some liberties.) Thanks to sevenpercent for her insights that supported this rewrite. Published: 4/6/2014 - Updated: 7/12/2014 - Complete

333333

BBC Sherlock: Nine Slices of Cake

In TSOT, clever Mary Morstan knew the boys needed "to run" and urged them to pick a case, especially Sherlock who was definitely becoming obsessive compulsive about the wedding plans. This fanfic occurs in that split-second when John convinces Sherlock to pick a case. Comically played by Benedict and Martin, this moment is IMHO a precursor to darker events to come in HLV

Published: 8/20/2014 - Updated: 8/20/2014 - Complete

333333

BBC Sherlock: MISSING PIECES

Remaining faithful as possible to BBC Canon, these 3 chapters are my FIRST fics—apologies in advance—and were written to fill the 'in-between scenes' that IMHO were sorely missing from HLV. Originally one-shots entitled GO Home (1,2.3), cause I didn't know how to make chapters. SO PLEASE read this MISSING PIECES instead of the Go Home series as this linked version is updated in small but significant ways. Again apologies for my earliest attempts at Fanfiction. ;-(

Chapter 1: Will Wounds Heal? A "missing" conversation between Sherlock and John Watson that could have taken place in HLV. Sherlock wakes up again in the hospital after collapsing from bleeding internally at Baker Street in the aftermath of new revelations between John and Mary; Chapter 2: Another conversation between Sherlock and John "missing" from Season 3, His Last Vow (episode 3). Wounds may be healing. Sherlock has returned to Baker Street and is secretly planning to raid Appledore. John finally opens up about how he's managing with and without Mary since Sherlock nearly died. Chapter 3: During Sherlock's incarceration, Mycroft, John, and Sherlock shared hopes, regrets, and heal wounds of misunderstanding. The context of John's and Sherlock's exchange offers a basis for their albeit very restrained final meeting at the air base. Published: 2/28/2014 - Updated: 2/28/2014 - Complete

BBC Sherlock: THRESHOLDS

Set in the near future (with presumptions about Season 4) the Watsons share their euphoria after the birth of their baby girl with their Best Man/Best Friend. Would Sherlock have been able to value such human emotions without the critical thresholds he experienced in A Scandal in Belgravia? A look at select moments (mostly from ASiB)that influenced Sherlock's emotional development. Published: 10/17/2014 - Updated: 12/7/2014 - maybe may add a chapter or two if the muse strikes.

Introspective-character studies: Canon compliant with BBC Sherlock written AFTER TAB

BBC Sherlock: An Awakening

Spoiler Alert: This fic takes place AFTER the events in The Abominable Bride with the premise that TAB was a vivid glimpse not only into Modern Sherlock's Mind Palace, but revealed his personal thoughts and feelings about John, Mary, Mycroft, Lestrade, and of course Moriarty. Fluff and sentiment may make an appearance. Published -1/15/2016-Updated: 4/8/2016 - Complete

BBC Sherlock: Gift of Silence

Post S-4: John rescues a child from a car explosion and suffers physical and emotional consequences-vertigo, deafness, PTSD. With his family gone, only Sherlock is left to pick up the pieces. Will John let him? [Written preS-4, now it's an AU, but it followed canon trajectory that Mary dies. This fic made no predictions how.] Casefic chapters 7-16, refer to crimes of pedophilia.

Introspective-character studies: Canon compliant with BBC Sherlock written AFTER Season 4

BBC Sherlock One-Shot: To Hell and Back

Contains spoilers for Season 4. In TLD, John has a major attitude shift. First, he's a grieving widower who rages at Sherlock, then, the friend who absolves Sherlock of blame for Mary's death. This one-shot examines John's transition that opened the way not only for their mutual reconciliation but for that tender hug of mutual consolation between them at the end of the episode. Published: 1/3/2020 - Complete

BBC Sherlock: Time Well Spent

Contains spoilers for Season 4. At the bottom of a well in "The Final Problem," John had unexpected time for introspection. In this episode, there were several conversations John and Sherlock exchanged while John was in the well. Each chapter will explore segments of time John spent in the well between their broken communications. Published: 2/12/2017- Updated: 2/12/2017 -- Complete

BBC Sherlock: The Case of the Colonel Carruthers Connection

Had Sherlock not changed John's life would John have taken his own? War injury and PTSD aside, what mystery in John's past made him feel "so alone" and lost? This character study follows John's long journey on the road to redemption, from the invalided soldier suffering survivor's guilt and tempted with suicide to the grieving widower sitting in his old armchair in 221B. SPOILER ALERT: While the timeline of this story begins after the Blind Banker, there are many spoilers and references to all four seasons of the BBC Series, including The Abominable Bride. Readers should be familiar to some degree with these episodes. Warning. Since the topic of suicide is discussed throughout, this story has an M rating.

BBC Sherlock: Life After Death

"When all else fails, there are two men sitting arguing in a scruffy flat like they've always been there and they always will." Such is the stuff of Legends. Except as a single parent, John Watson has to wonder if being the "last refuge for the desperate, the unloved, the persecuted" as Sherlock's partner will make his greatest challenge—raising a child—all the more daunting. Published: 4/24/2017 - Updated: 8/9/2017 - Complete

BBC Sherlock: Death Wish

Post Season 4: Widower and Rosie's devoted dad, John Watson would never admit he was bored with enforced domesticity, but as Mary had once observed, "John needs to run every now and then." After receiving a mysterious letter about murder, Sherlock may have found the perfect case to recruit John into the fenlands to solve a mystery. Captain John H. Watson makes a rare appearance!

BBC Sherlock: Wits End

Post Season 4 one-shot: While legendary partners and enduring friends, John and Sherlock could go without direct communication for weeks at a time, each man knows he would be at the ready should the other make a call for help.

In this Post S-4 story, the legendary friendship endures. An unexpected encounter in a restaurant and a call from Lestrade reunites Sherlock and John for a mystery that has stumped the Met.

BBC Sherlock: A Whimsical Case

Post S-4 A new adventure for our Baker Street Boys! Sherlock and John meet young Lord Peter Wimsey, his valet Mervyn Bunter, and his friend DI Charles Parker and join on a quest to find a famous writer who is missing. This BBC Sherlock crossover with D.L. Sayer's Wimsey borrows from a true mystery that has never been solved. Loyalty and friendship are running themes throughout. Published: 11/19/2019 - Complete

333333

BBC Sherlock: A Case of Separation

Post S-4 While Sherlock's and John's separate and busy lives often keep them from working cases together, both men understand and accept this. But when Sherlock has not yet returned from his most recent investigation, John becomes concerned about his friend's prolonged absence and starts his own investigation. (Updated since the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.) Published: 2/17/2020 Complete

Sherlock and John are both on record as believing the other to be "the best and wisest man" he has ever known.

Sherlock came back from the dead twice for John. Apparently three times is too much to ask. Written for a prompt- what if Sherlock never called the ambulance to the flat.

His Last Vow: Alternative Ending by omegaxx reviews
What if John Watson had actually been the John Watson we knew, with "strong moral principle" and "nerves of steel"? What if Sherlock Holmes had actually been the Sherlock Holmes we knew, "prepared to do what ordinary people won't do"? This story is how, in my mind, "His Last Vow" should have ended.

Staying Human by Radon65 reviews
A few days ago, he had received word from Mycroft that there was going to be a 'documentary' concerning his suicide. Mycroft had informed him that some interviews on the programme might be of interest to him, and directed him to the correct channel that would permit him to watch it. And now he was writhing in the dark, clutching the sides of his chair and hyperventilating.
