sherlockruiningmylife asked: I love your blog and fic recs so so much! And I was wondering if you happen to know of any fics where john and sherlock go to france. I have read some where there is french spoken but I don’t really remember what they were and if they were set in france
AHHH I’m so happy you’re enjoying my blog!!!! ❤
I DON’T actually know the fic you’re looking for, though I can only find this one in my bookmarks that deal with Sherlock speaking French:
A Study in Winning by Jupiter_Ash (E, 106,658 w. || Tennis AU || John POV, Dirty Talk, Mutual Pining, Misunderstandings, Happy Ending, Sherlock Speaks French, Switchlock, Wimbledon) – John and Sherlock are professional tennis players and it’s Wimbledon. One is a broken almost was at the end of his career, the other an arrogant rising star tipped for greatness. It should have been a straightforward tournament. It really should have been. How were they to know that a chance encounter would change everything? Part 1 of Tennis
And I know of this one where John is a polyglot, but I haven’t read it yet:
Common Tongues: Unassuming Brilliance by jinglebell (E, 41,174 w. || PODFIC AVAILABLE || Anal, Rimming, Snowballing, Language Kink, Blow Jobs, BAMF John, Size Difference, Height Difference, Sapiosexual Sherlock, Barebacking, Size Queen) – John may be predictably average in most things, but there are a handful of areas in which he knows he is uncommonly skilled. He can make a great cup of tea, for one. He’s also good at patching folks up, putting bullets precisely where he wants them, and listening.The one skill that John is perhaps most exceptional in, though, is language. John is a polyglot.
I’m sure I have others but they’re escaping me at the moment. Any of my lovely have any of their own suggestions, or know of the fic @sherlockruiningmylife is looking for? I would also love to know!
I know of two fics by @khorazir, where John and Sherlock are cycling through France, one time in private and the other time as professional cyclists during Tour de France:
John and Sherlock travel to France to tackle the Col du Galibier (of Tour de France fame) by bicycle, and the confused state of their relationship after Sherlock’s return from the dead at the same time. A long journey, and a long climb …
It’s going to be the last Tour de France for professional cyclist John Watson. Despite the hardships of cycling more than 3000 kilometres in three weeks, in blistering heat and torrential rain, over dangerous cobblestones in northern France and the mountains of the Alps and the Pyrenees, battling thirst, hunger, injury and exhaustion, not to mention bitchy rivals, doping allegations, and the ever scoop-hungry press, he is going to enjoy the ride, damn it. That’s what John keeps telling himself – until he meets his new teammate, Sherlock Holmes, who adds a whole new list of problems as well as an extra dose of excitement to John’s life… (WIP)

Had a small exhibition of my Tolkien inspired artworks at the Baroque church of Greifenstein Castle last Saturday. I was invited to exhibit by musician Phil Cory @sonicwarrior888 who made beautiful music on his guitar and quartz bowls. Some of my Tolkien art is featured in one of Phil’s music videos.
