Ahoy! The Collected Mutineer here. The Collectress has taken the majority of this week off in preparation to post her epic DCBB tomorrow. As such, this may be my only chance to have a go at Fanfic Wednesday. So of course, I chose not one, but three Sherlock fics. You’re welcome.
I love a good Johnlock. I love a good Johnlock even more when the author has a definitive grasp of Sherlock Holmes’ point of view. That may seem like an obvious requirement, but it can be difficult to write the world’s only consulting detective, and remain in character. Whenever I find a story that captures him properly, I bookmark it, regardless of tags, genre, WIP, pairing, or warnings. Give me a proper Sherlock Holmes, and I’m a happy girl.
Pairings: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Word Count: 62,006
Author’s Synopsis: Sherlock is head over heels for John, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at him. First-person present-tense series of short scenes from Sherlock’s point of view, borrowing heavily from Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories.
My Thoughts: This is the king of Sherlock POVs. If you’ve read ivyblossom’s The Quiet Man, then you know how freakishly good she is at first person present tense. She immerses you so well into the mind of the character that you almost forget you’re just reading a story. And on top of it, she manages an easy-to-read stream of consciousness that isn’t confusing or bogged down by unimportant details. In this narrative, we get a fantastic look at the inner workings of Sherlock’s constantly engaged mind. We fall in love with his brilliance all over again, and of course, get front row seats to him falling in love with John. This story is beautiful for so many reasons, and one to which I will undoubtedly return.
