Fanfic Wednesday: “Let Me”


Let Me” by  (AO3)

Pairing: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson 

Word Count: 11,756

Author’s Summary:

Sherlock Holmes has suffered from insomnia all his life. When Watson realizes the extent of it, he searches for a way to comfort Holmes, and in the process confronts things neither of them have been saying.

My Thoughts:

While my favorite Johnlock fics are usually set in the modern universe established by BBC’s Sherlock, I occasionally come across a story set closer to (or sometimes in) the original Arthur Conan Doyle canon. “Let Me” is set in Victorian London, and explores Sherlock’s insomnia. I’m a complete sucker for the “I can’t sleep well unless we’re sleeping in the same bed” trope, and this story does not disappoint.

It’s elementary.
