Half-Cocked (Chapter 4 up now) (Complete)
Sherlock looked at the things glistening on the table. So this was something John was into. Sherlock was unsurprised. John had been extensively bedded. It didn't take a deductive genius to figure out that a man with a wide sexual experience would like to experience many…wide things. Sherlock, however, was pretty sure he didn't like the things glistening on the table. Then again... (Humor/Romance) (NC-17)

Well Met (in progress; probably forever; all chapters stand alone) "A Shot in the Arm" up now
There's no place or time in which John Watson and Sherlock Holmes wouldn't have met. If it hadn't been St. Bart's it would have been somewhere else. But where? And how? Here are some other ways that most legendary of partnerships might have begun. (Humor/Love) (PG to R)

Minutiae (Or 156 Things I Know About You) (in progress; probably forever; all chapters stand alone) chapter 50 up now
Here, in no particular order, are some of the things John has learned about Sherlock, and some of the things Sherlock has learned about John. In the end there will be 156 mundane and unusual facts for each of them. (Humor/Sex) (PG to R)

Limb From Limb (Complete)
For John Watson it was worth a wound, it was worth many wounds, to know the depth of loyalty and love which lay behind those sharp, grey eyes. *Warning for brief violence and homophobia* (Angst/Love) (NC-17)

Hair Raising (Complete)
What do John and Sherlock do when medication side-effects leave Sherlock with extremely sensitive follicles and a desire to experiment? What do you think they do? Have a sort of remote control sex of course... (Humor/Sex) (NC-17)

The First Time... (Complete)
There's a first time for every thing, for every little thing. Here are stand-alone tales about the first time Sherlock and John had sex in public; the first time Sherlock set his privates on fire; the first time Greg met Mycroft...and so much more. (Humor/Sex) (G to NC-17)

Bits and Pieces and Drabbles (in progress; all chapters stand alone) Next Story: Sharp
Sherlock and John in wee little dribs and drabs. Short bits of fiction, prompt fills for friends, 221Bs, or just little stories that don't want to grow up to be big stories. (Humor/Sex) (G to NC-17)

Somnophilia (While You Were Sleeping) (Complete)
Sherlock did it to John that way only once. Once, however, was more than enough. Because when you've got a brain like Sherlock Holmes, you can take once and you can take it apart... (Consensual/Humor/Sex) (NC-17)

Long Time Coming (Complete)
Get John and Sherlock engaged they said. It'll be fun they said... Yes, well the first 'incident' occurred six days, eleven hours, and forty-two minutes before they got married; the last about twenty seconds before they walked down the aisle. What happened in between even I don't quite believe. I'm Aurora Aurelia Abbington, the skull on the mantle, and I have another story to tell. Are you ready? Are you? Please, someone has to be. (Sex/Humor) (NC-17)

Wee Tumblr Fics (Complete)
Tiny 300 words stories about John and Sherlock that I publish each week on Tumblr. (G to NC-17)

A Little Birdie Told Me (Complete)
Silly stories and serious based off great tweets by the writers, directors, producers, or actors of Sherlock (Tweets? A little birdie told me? Get it? Cough.) If you unearth any you think wonderful, please share! (Humor/Sex) (PG to NC-17)

A Fit of Pique: Vexation, Umbrage, and Discontent (all chapters stand alone; in progress, probably forever) Vexation: Power Princess
They are little girls, all three. They started as a joke between John and Sherlock, a tease, a taunt, a fit of pique while they argued about empathy and erections. But over the years Vexation, Umbrage, and Discontent grew, like children always do... (Humor/Family) (G to PG)

This Time No (Forgiveness) (Complete)
It was Sherlock's fault. It usually is. And though he'll ask forgiveness for what he's done, for the very first time John will say, "This time no, Sherlock. This time, never." And maybe, just maybe, John Watson is going to mean it. (Angst/Drama; includes a few chapters of self-harm.) (NC-17)

Sherlock Advent Calendar 2012 (Complete)
Bare-bottomed boys, petulant skulls, public eye sex, marriage proposals...just another Advent for the boys of 221B. (Humor/Sex) (NC-17)

Sherlock Advent Calendar 2011 (Complete)
Terrible Christmas cards, sexual congress in the cold, phone foreplay, jumper romance, a sexy swagger with a side of pistol whipping, squidbabies, nipple tassles, and resolutions…what did the boys not get up to during 2011 Advent? (Humor/Sex) (NC-17)

The Heat of Healing (Complete)
Fibrin. Collagen. Plasma. Blood. Crutches. Canes. Plasters. Slings. For a little while this might have been the damn tone poem for 221B. There was a brief, strange period early in their first year when one man, the other, or both were hurt, half-healed, or tending the other's wounds. And it was wonderful. (Romance/Drama/Painplay.) (R)

Feeding Sherlock (in progress; also probably forever; all chapters stand alone) chapter 14 up now
Sherlock habitually starved himself of everything: Food, sleep, sex. Fortunately John finally figured out how to get Sherlock to eat. To want to eat. To absolutely, damn well love it. (Humor/Sex) (NC-17)

Mehndi (Complete)
Frankly it was the mehndi swirled all over Sherlock's half-bare body that gave John pause. Lots of dry-mouthed pause. And a desire to take the Camden Market case. Right. Now. (Humor/Sex) (NC-17)

I'll Give You F****** Fluffy (Complete)
. That's what the old Scotland Yard vet had called John. Fluffy. Well John Watson-Holmes is not fluffy, damn it. And he's going to prove it with some wall-slamming, hell-yes, super-duper aggressive sex with the mister. That'll show them. Oh hell yeah. (Humor/Sex) (NC-17)

How to Kill John Watson, Easy Peasy (Complete)
You don't need a McMillan Tac-50 with telescopic sight to take John Watson out. All you'll require to dispatch Dr. Watson quickly, cleanly and easy peasy is this: One riding crop + patent-black stilettos + lisp + Sherlock Holmes. (Humor/Sex) (NC-17)

Jerk (Complete)
Sherlock is drunk. John is not. Regent's Park is empty. And it's a Tuesday. "So are you going to wank for me John Hamish Watson-Holmes?" The man so named thought about the answer briefly, then replied. "Yes, my espoused, I do believe I am." (Humor/Sex) (NC-17)

Shhhhhh! (Complete)
Their trousers were at their ankles, the library was quiet, and John's motivation was clear: For every multi-syllable word he used correctly, Sherlock would reward him with one balls-deep thrust. Quick…what's a six syllable word for oh-dear-god-yes? (Humor/Sex) (NC-17)

Narcissus (Complete)
Sherlock's got laryngitis. John decides to soothe his poor wheezy sweetie. Of course he does. It's entirely natural for him to do so with a little sexing. Of course it is. Making love to his lover whispering sweet, sweet nothings to him…in his own voice. (Humor/Sex) (NC-17, John/Sherlock)

Tooth & Nail (Complete)
John Watson, doctor, ex-soldier, tiny tyrant, and extreme dental phobe is stoned. Rat-arsed. High as a horny kite. And if he doesn't stop dancing on the coffee table he's going to do himself a serious mischief. Yet it seems the only way to get John off the coffee table is to, um, get John off. Obviously. (Humor/Sex) (NC-17, John/Sherlock)

The Blown Fuse (Complete)
The entire idea of Sherlock is noise. He's six feet of sassy retort, seventy-two and one half inches of verbal brimstone. In short, the man is mostly mouth. So why, why, why was his silence now filling the cold room with heat? (Humor/Sex) (NC-17, John/Sherlock)

Empathy (Complete)
John would like Sherlock to take an empathy test. Sherlock does not want to take an empathy test. John...does things. Sherlock relents. The results surprise...some. (Super amazing bonus: The names of their non-existent children revealed!) (Humor/Sex) (PG-13, John/Sherlock)

Whipping Boy (Complete)
After John hit him, Sherlock got hard. What a surprise. Of course it'd been an accident, of course John had apologized profusely, and of course that had been the end of that. Except it hadn't, god no. Consensual riding crop violence. Sex/Angst/Humor) (NC-17, John/Sherlock)

Suck (Complete)
It was unquestionably the most pornographic thing John had ever done, and yet it was as quiet and gentle as god damn kittens. Something happens during John and Sherlock's unexpected vacation. Other than food poisoning. And a possible aneurysm. (Humor/Sex) (NC-17, John/Sherlock)

Voice Over (Complete)
Sherlock is maaaad at John. So mad he's not speaking to him. As in not speaking. Did you hear that part? About Sherlock? Being silent? Do you know how hard that is for him? But it's fine. It's all fine. Because John's going to talk for both of them. He's going to relate. Discuss. Describe. John's going to f***ing narrate everything. Humor/Sex) (NC-17, John/Sherlock)

Look at What the Met Dragged In (Complete)
“No offense Sherlock, but John and I are a lot more rough round the edges than you are. You’d have made a much prettier girl.” Sherlock’s long, painted fingers ran slowly up one long leg, tugging the wrinkles from his black hose. “True…” (Humor/Sex) (PG, John/Sherlock)

Shave and a Haircut (Complete)
"Sherlock, let me shave you." That's how it starts. What happens next involves a straight razor, 20 questions, and some very creative foreplay. (Sex/Humor/Angst) (NC-17, John/Sherlock)

Sacrilege (Complete)
"Face the other side of the confessional brother John." Dear god John's dreams never go the way they're supposed to though, heaven help him, not for lack of trying. And this one? This one is sending him straight to hell. (Humor/Sex/Religion Treated Lightly) (NC-17, John/Sherlock)

Four Shame, Sherlock (Complete)
It’s possible Sherlock may feel no shame. At all. Ever. John’s still not absolutely sure about this, which is why the good doctor enjoys testing his lover’s limits—well, his sexual limits—seeing exactly how far he’s willing to go. (Humor/Sex) (NC-17, John/Sherlock)

Wet Dream (Complete)
John Watson also performs experiments. Of course he does. Why should the fabled Sherlock Holmes get all the fun? Mostly, John experiments on Sherlock. Actually the only experiments John does are on Sherlock. While Sherlock's sleeping. Only while Sherlock's sleeping. The results can be...wet. (Humor/Sex) (NC-17, John/Sherlock)

Skullduggery (Complete)
The skull speaks! "It all started after I died. Life was good; it was me and Sherlock, Sherlock and me. For eight years we had a great thing going, we understood each other, we were simpatico. And then he showed up." (Sex/HurtComfort/Humor) (NC-17, John/Sherlock) (Also available in Danish!)

All That Glitters (Complete)
So. John and Sherlock. Sherlock and John. Getting together. Romantically. How'd it all start, anyway? Well, essentially it was Gary Glitter's fault, and you can take that to the bank. (Humor/Sex) (NC-17, John/Sherlock)

When Fact Meets Fiction (Complete)
What happens when a figment, a fiction, meets his father, a living, breathing man? (Humor/No Sex) (PG, Benedict/Sherlock -- Respectful; restrained; no sex -- and yet a bit hot.)

Nail Me (Complete)
A story wherein we borrow one infinitely charming characteristic of Benedict Cumberbatch, and give it to Sherlock, while at the same time eventually finding a reason to get on with some sex by way of two manicures and maybe a pedicure. Total fluff. (Humor/Sex) (NC-17, John & Sherlock)

The Catalyst (Complete)
If the Sherlock we imagine existed—the sweet one who is tender to John—I think a fight like what follows would eventually have to happen, what with John seeing how kind Sherlock can be, yet witnessing daily how awful he often chooses to be instead. Lestrade said Sherlock was a great man, someday he might even be a good one; while Mycroft thinks John could be the making of his brother. I think John will be Sherlock's catalyst for change, change for the better, but it's going to hurt along the way. This is how I'm imagining it starts. Don't worry, it ends well. It ends very, very sexy and quite fluffy actually. (Sex/HurtComfort/Angst) (NC-17, John/Sherlock)

Black & Blue (Complete)
Why do so many of us love hurting our lovely Sherlock? Whether that thought intrigues you, it's certainly on the mind of John Watson. A doctor who has started to do things to his lover he never, ever thought he'd do. (Consensual riding crop violence and sex NC-17, John/Sherlock)

Which 'Well Met' Please?
NEWWWWWWWW
atlinmerrick
I'm giving away a copy of "The Night They Met," which comes out this autumn.

I'm doing that because I'm writing the book as we speak and want to take one of the Well Met AO3 stories and not only lengthen it, but tell what happens next — but do that in "The Night They Met." So, of all the Well Met tales, which should be expanded for the book do you think? Please tell!

The person with the most delicious reason why they picked the story they did gets the book for free (or "The Day They Met," which is out now).

I've opened the comments here to anonymous replies in case you don't have an account here. By 22 July 2015 do please tell me which "Well Met" needs expanding for inclusion in "The Night They Met," receive my gratitude and, quite possibly, a book. Thank you!

I now write for the newly-formed imprint Improbable Press, and am its acquisitions editor.

A sort of Advent of porn for 2014…quick little stories prompted by imagesCollapse )

Keeping It Loki (Ch. 8)
NEWWWWWWWW
atlinmerrick

Sherlock sneered at the Sherlock glamour and just like that it turned into Loki turned into John turned into that pretty actor Sherlock side-eyes when he sees him on TV, turned into a younger Loki turned into Molly turned into Thor turned into empty air.

Empty air everywhere. Then Sherlock turned around, and there they were.

Lokis. Lokis everywhere.

A Series of Sweet Things (Well Met)
NEWWWWWWWW
atlinmerrick
Sherlock's brief joy at the admiration is tempered to resignation, because here it comes. After Sherlock does his Sherlock thing, he's grown used to thank yous that aren't, thank yous that ignore what he just did by asking him to do more, but that's not what he gets now.

Except he does.

John Watson leans close, whispers, "So…can you do me a favour? Just one small favour?"

      ~ A Series of Sweet Things

Minutiae (156 Things I Know About You): Ch. 56
NEWWWWWWWW
atlinmerrick
Until recently, John thought there were only two things that would prevent him from kissing Sherlock. Cigarette breath was the first. Cooked okra, the second.

The third? Well that one was a surprise.

      ~ Minutiae

Keeping It Loki (Ch. 7)
NEWWWWWWWW
atlinmerrick
Sherlock doesn't get off on force, or domination, or pushing past John's boundaries. But that night on the rooftop of 221B?

Well, that night Sherlock learned he gets off when John pushes himself.

Using Sherlock's body.

      ~ Keeping It Loki

Driven to Distraction
NEWWWWWWWW
atlinmerrick
John's intention had been to finally get his driving licence because apparently, his sister said, that's what grown-ups do. But when he met his driving instructor in a mostly-empty parking lot, well John hated the man on sight.

He looked so annoyingly GQ what with that hair curling perfectly against his collar, the flawlessly pressed suit, light eyes slanting up just-so, voluptuous lips that—damn it, that's not the point. The point is...

   ~ Driven to Distraction

The Day They Met (Soon to be called "Well Met")
NEWWWWWWWW
atlinmerrick
"I was invited to a friend's wedding."

The small man across from Maiko Sato Mayfair sat in his chair so stiffly he appeared bound to it.

"And he asked me to lead the waltz."

Hands and knees pressed together, John Watson's body language was not just closed, it was locked down tight.

Maiko smiled. She knew how to fix that.
