Illustrated fics

Anonymous asked:

Do you know how to find fics that have gifs or illustrations in them? I really love coming across one like that but I don’t know how to search for more. Thanks a bunch!

Hey Nonny!

Ahhh, the only ones I know of are these:

A Study in Sensuality (or, That Johnlock Gif Story) by MojoFlower(E, 4,693 w., 1 Ch. || Unilock || Porn Gifs, PWP, Pole Dancer Sherlock, Student Sherlock, Student John, Photography, Sensuality, Voyeurism, Masturbation, Rimming, Fingering, Blow Jobs, Anal Sex, Felching, Unsafe Sex) – When John signs up to partner with Sherlock Holmes in photography class, he never guesses it will end up with him balls-deep in his study partner’s arse. Easy A? (TO READ)

Excerpts from Purgatory by reapersun, what_alchemy(E, 5,829 w., 1 Ch. || Post-TRF, Doctor John, Reunion Fic, Rough Sex, Angry Sex, Bottomlock, Fic with Pics)  – John serves community service in homeless shelters for chinning the superintendent. Unbeknownst to him, the Homeless Network has his back.

Tease You Till You Come by phoenix089(E, 6,090 w., 1 Ch. || First Time, Clueless Sherlock, Sexting/Texting) – Initially, Sherlock was rather put out by John’s lack of presence on the case. But then he starts to receive pictures, several of them, of an unexpected nature. The case is forgotten rather quickly after that.

——-

If anyone knows of any others, please do add them!! ❤

Okay, the pics are not anything like those in the fics you mention above – but here are some fics that I have illustrated:

Whiskies Neat by ellipsical (I only illustrated one chapter, but it’s a lovely story!)

And then two that I have written and illustrated profusely (they’re not at all smutty, hope that doesn’t disappoint!)

Interview, a short punklock thing

The Adventure of the Misguided Merchant a Victorian remix thing

and I believe that @khorazir​ is the grand diety if the illustrated fic:

Slipstream, The Summer Boy, Enigma, The Horse and his Doctor(Which are all on my marked for later list ) all come to mind, but I think that there are more!

Thank you very much for the mention and the recs, @bluebellofbakerstreet You’ve created so many lovely covers and fic illustrations.

All my own fics have illustrations, mostly one per chapter, sometimes more. Over the years, I’ve also created a good number (as in a few hundred) of illustrations for fics by others, either as commissions or because I simply liked the story (or both). They can be found at my #fanfic tag here on tumblr.

I also know that @ceruleanmindpalace illustrate their own fics and sometimes create illustrations for others.

Summary:

According to folklore, the nights between Christmas and Twelfth Night are the most dangerous of the year. During them, the Wild Hunt rides, and ghosts and demons come out to haunt unsuspecting and misbehaving folk. An investigation of a series of strange occurrences leads John and Sherlock to Hay-on-Wye on the Welsh Marches, to face ghosts weird and ancient as well as close and personal – and perhaps to start the new year on a more hopeful note than the previous one.

======

Rec: This is a fascinating paranormal-adjacent mystery with some timely politics that allow Sherlock to stretch his chops beyond his usual “observe and deduce” spiel. It was especially interesting to learn about the local traditions and see how Sherlock dealt with the inexplicable – not just the folklore, but the emotional sie of the equation as well. Oh, and lest I forget: there was just one bed, and it certainly lives up to the hype!

(On the Rosie front, she is mentioned but does not actually appear in the story.)

Awww, thank you very much for the lovely rec. As for the one bed thing, well, the rules are the rules … 😉

COVID-19 Lockdown Fics

Anonymous asked:

Hello! Do you know any good fics about John and Sherlock in covid lockdown together? I’m kinda done with real life lockdown (my country hasn’t started vaccinating yet) so I wanna flee in theirs 🙂 Would be even better if it’s post season 4/with Rosie (I have a soft spot for toddler Rosie) and not explicit. Thanks in advance and I hope you’re doing fine!

swissmissficrecs:

Reply: Sure, I have a few. I’m just going to toss them all in regardless of rating because there aren’t that many, in case others are interested. Also including a couple where they are in lockdown in separate places but find a way to “be together.”

COVID-19 Lockdown Fics

an experiment in social distancing by simplyclockwork (2K, E, Johnlock)
Sherlock and John explore the less G-rated potential of social distancing through video chat.

Collateral Impact by BakerTumblings (32K, T, Johnlock)
Ever think about what it might’ve been like on Baker Street, for John being medical, and what might have crossed his mind? Some short, random COVID 19 thoughts.

Fourteen Days by Ranowa (6K, T, Johnlock)
Sherlock does not do well, cooped up at home.John does even worse than Sherlock.Sherlock, therefore, devises a plan for immediate action.

In His Care by BeautifulFiction (20K, T, Johnlock)
John catches Covid-19, and it’s up to Sherlock to take care of him within the sanctuary of Baker Street.

Inhale with Ease by Vulpesmellifera (25K, E, Johnlock)
In the years after Vivian Norbury’s capture, life seems to work out just as John planned. He’s got that respectable job at the surgery and goes home to his wife and child. He joins Sherlock on cases a couple times per week. It’s a rhythm he can live with – just enough adrenaline highs to balance out the drudgery of a normal bloke’s life.Until a pandemic, and Victor Trevor, arrive in London.

Putting Up Shelves by khorazir (11K, M, Johnlock)
Sherlock claims to be an expert at putting up shelves. John gets the totally wrong idea. DIY, awkwardness and some soul-searching ensue. And some shelves are put up …

The Secret of Hazel Grange by SilentAuror (18K, E, Johnlock)
John has a secret, and Sherlock is bothered. Trapped together at Baker Street during the lockdown, the tension only grows worse as Christmas draws nearer…

The Source of Light by bookjunkiecat (4K, T, Johnlock)
During the outbreak of the virus, John, as medical personnel, is essential on the medical frontlines. This means a necessary separation from his loved ones. Stretched thin, exhausted, he nevertheless makes time for a Skype call with Sherlock and Rose. Even though all he wants is to finally tell Sherlock how much he loves him, now isn’t the time. Circumstances, however, don’t always work as we expect.

There is also an AO3 collection (which includes many of the above) for the topic with a whole lot more, including lots of shorter, lower rated ones: Isolated Johnlock

#ade recs fic: The Best of 2020

a-different-equation:

It’s a bit of a tradition, and because 2020 was A YEAR, the annual rec list is a) a bit shorter and b) at the beginning of 2021. But duh, we all made it through 2020, and I guess we all agree on one thing: Ao3 (and fandom) was a bright spot in such dark times.

Hold Me Fast and Fear Me Not by JesBelle: Sherlock Holmes is a monster. Moriarty is a faerie. Mrs. Hudson is neither a teapot nor your housekeeper. And John Watson is just trying to keep up. (BBC!Johnlock, explicit, 42k)

This story has everything: it’s a dark fairytale, which means magical realism, transformation, and lots of secrets. It also has one of the best texting between Harry and John Watson in all of BBC SHERLOCK fanfic. Have I mentioned the amazing world-building? And the poetic language, and – don’t know if it’s true – the husband as a beta. Overall gorgeous, and so hot.

The Sky is Full of Fiddles by agirlsname: It’s 1895 in the heart of Swedish folk music and dance. During certain weekends, boys are allowed to visit girls at night, wooing them with fantastical poems. If a girl lets a boy into her room they can share a bed all night, fully clothed, to talk and eat caramels together.John is seventeen and looking for a girl to marry like everyone else. He’s very surprised when another boy suddenly stands outside his door, wanting to share his bed… (BBC!Johnlock, teen, 25k)

You can read the story for Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, and I am confident that most of the readers clicked on the fic because of the pairing. However, I am also confident that in the end, a lot of them stayed and were in awe of the beauty of Swedish folklore, its history and culture, present and past. I, personally, love it when natives tell their stories, because fandom is and should be diverse, and this story reminds you why.

How To Unfold a Heart by @elwinglyre: To Sherlock’s dismay, John’s return to Baker Street with Rosie is only temporary. Sherlock’s daily visits to Regent Park with John and Rosie illuminate his lost childhood memories and missed opportunities. But with each trip to the park, Sherlock also feels a growing sense of hope. That is until the past horrors return unexpectedly in a cryptic note folded in the shape of a heart. To decipher the message, Sherlock must uncover the nature of the hearts around him, including his own. (BBC!Johnlock, explicit, 25k)

This has allllll the goodies: pining!Sherlock (also obvious!Sherlock, clueless!Sherlock, besotted!Sherlock, and have I mentioned pining!Sherlock), slow burn, BAMF (and OMG, Sherlock LOVES it), some fluff, a bit of parent lock (you’re going to loooove this Rosie, pinky promise!), and most importantly: READ ALL THE NOTES ❤ The queer ballad, the queer swans ❤ It’s a queer Romantic Comedy at its best. 

Forever Turning Corners by @discordantwords: Exactly one year and four days after Sherlock Holmes flung himself from the top of Barts Hospital, John Watson buys himself a bottle of good scotch and a train ticket. The train ticket is an impulse, the scotch is not. (BBC!Sherlock, mature, 9k)

Arthur Conan Doyle’s “Silver Blaze” brought me into this fandom ca. 25 years ago, so it was elementary (ha!) to read this twist on the canon story. It’s not Doyle, but it’s own transformation and it’s glorious: on point, quick-paced, and with a twist that is almost as surprising as “the curious incident during night-time”. Oh, and Reichenbach-ANGST, another (instant) classic.

Putting up Shelves by @khorazir: Sherlock claims to be an expert at putting up shelves. John gets the totally wrong idea. DIY, awkwardness and some soul-searching ensue. And some shelves are put up… (BBC!Johnlock, mature, 11k)

This is so precious. It’s charming and funny and romantic and a bit sexy – the perfect mix. I’m always in favour of word games, so I was grinning a lot. As for the IKEA adventure, I guess everyone has a tale to share about their manuals.

Speaking of manuals: Sherlock’s drawings ❤ I think I spotted them on tumblr before. Fantastic! My favourite is the first, even I cannot say why.

That he picked up the design of a manual to illustrate his feelings and wishes for their relationship is so Sherlock. In a good way, very good way.

This is partly c+p of my own comment, and I’ll repeat it as often as needed until everyone reads the story and admires the art. AMAZING!

And last but not least, my absolute favourite, and if you aren’t teary-eyed at the end of the first story… I don’t know anymore. 

Fairy Lights by @vtsuion: A cold winter’s night in Sussex brings a mystery beyond even Holmes’s powers of deduction. Also, a Holmesian fairy tale. (ACD!Johnlock, gen, 4k)

This one is pure poetry, and it’s like a comfy blanket and some hot tea/coffee, and just all the warmth you can imagine – and a touch of magic, you know of the childhood memories kind: winter but only the quietness and peace. 

It’s the very rare pieces you want not only to print out but to be read as a good-night-story because it’s… eerie.
