Biological Imperatives by VictoryCandescence
[John & Sherlock] Summary: Two men in a baby shop. Philosophy and speculation ensue.
“Get this one,” he says, and thrusts a romper at John’s face over the rack. It’s a pale pink, with flowers printed up the legs, and a tiny bee embroidered on the front, a little dotted line looping around it showing its flight pattern. It’s achingly cute, John has to admit. [John and Sherlock go shopping for a gift to give to an expecting friend and fluff ensues. This fic is adorable and is on my list of things to read when I'm down.]

Imagines Moti Series by SwissMiss
[John/Sherlock, Reichenbach/Post-Reichenbach, magical realism] You didn't get one for everything that happened in your life. That would have been a bit ridiculous, if your skin reacted every time you sneezed or ate an egg or got a paper cut. Only things that had a strong emotional impact, positive or negative, ended up imprinted on your skin, a permanent reminder for you and the world of how your sojourn through this earthly existence had marked you.

And now, for the shipping forecast by raven
[John, Post-Reichenbach] After Sherlock's death, John thinks (too much), drinks (not enough) and, on a tide of sisters' ex-wives, cheese and kindness, sails on.

The Ties That Bleed by luchia13
[John/Sherlock, Post-Reichenbach, Magical realism] Summary: John Watson has been bonded by blood to Sherlock Holmes. Until the day Sherlock dies, they will be tied together. Until the day Sherlock dies, John can't.
“Oh, sometimes you just think about shooting yourself in the head,” Mrs. Holmes says enthusiastically. “I know right after my husband died I kept thinking about doing it. You can always still feel them. For God’s sake, I buried him with my own two hands – not a lick of help with grave digging, my boys – and I keep wondering when I’ll stop feeling his heartbeat.”

John isn’t quite sure why it’s so reassuring to hear a sixty-year-old woman who is the equivalent of his mother-in-law pleasantly shout out her suicidal tendencies, but it is. “God, it’s never going to go away?”

Mrs. Holmes puts a hand on his shoulder. “Do you honestly want it to?”
[I wish there was more of this fic, it is super good and I love the world the author built.]

Alternate Endings by Cathedral Carver
[John/Sherlock, character death] John decides Ella may have a point after all, and since he doesn’t particularly like the ending to his and Sherlock’s latest story, he decides to change it, on paper at least. Well, not on paper, really. Just, in writing. The beauty of the written word, he’s discovered over the years, is that when he’s writing, he’s in bloody charge. He can write whatever the fuck he wants and fuck anyone who dares argue with him, even—

Well, anyway.

He takes a deep breath and begins altering his world.
[Sad but gorgeous. I made a cover for it which can be seen here.]

Strangers by Paisley Pie
[John/Sherlock, AU] "The average human being is subject to a thousand different bothersome weaknesses every moment of every day, with hunger, thirst, fatigue and lust being the most prevalent. But would it be possible for one to create a human being sans the trivialities? All the strengths of man, and none of the weaknesses?"

In 2110, Sherlock Holmes builds a machine.
[In which Sherlock builds an android named John Watson]

There Will Be Time by AkitaFallow
[John/Sherlock, Retirement] There's an old couple in the cottage down the road a ways. The boys of the village love to sneak a visit, when they can--old Dr. Watson is always good for a cup of tea or a spot of mischief, and tells the most fantastic stories. And Mr. Holmes might be a cranky old bugger, but he's a cranky old bugger who blows things up.

And there's always the honey.
[Told from the POV of a boy who becomes friends with John and Sherlock, it is a lovely story.]

Lady Macbeth by [ profile] sariagray
[John/Sherlock, Post-Reichenbach]
11. Earth

He’ll work his way through the Ukraine, and Russia, and then down through China until his feet run out of land and his hands run out of blood to spill and his predator-mind runs out of prey to hunt, and he can sink into the ocean like a very tired stone and let the salt and the water scrub him clean of it all, let it wrinkle him grotesque.

12. End

And then he will wash up on the sun-baked shores of California, blank and new.
[I love the way the author chose to write this fic. Also, I have a soft spot for post-Reichenbach fics from Sherlock's POV. I also did some art for this fic, which you can find here.]

Equivalent Exchange by thedeadparrot
[Sherlock/John, FMA AU] Summary: John comes back from the war broken in more ways than one. [The AU I didn't know I wanted.]

What Might We Deduce About His Heart by EditedByRents
[Post-Reichenbach] Sherlock character study with a side of grieving John. Lovely editing and an interesting Sherlock/London element. (Music: The Cottage on the Beach by Dario Marianelli (Atonement OST))

Off I Go by caminolte
Great Sherlock character study, I especially love the progression of the vid and all the different facets of Sherlock's personality. (Music: Off I Go by Greg Laswell)

A Magic Trick by NolaEspoir
[Reichenbach/Post-Reichenbach] Long (6 minutes) but interesting vid explaining how Sherlock was able to fool John with his death using the drug from Baskervilles. Well executed.(Music: Song For Bob by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford OST))

I Was Looking For A Breath of Life by Ideducedit
[Reichenbach] Great video about how John needed Sherlock in his life to make it interesting. (Music: Breath of Life by Florence + The Machine)

Animus Vox by caminolte
Glorious editing porn. (Music: Animus Vox by The Glitch Mob)

Moriarty - One Wish by Vatufe
Very nice Moriarty vid. I think the reason I like it so much is that the audio part is made from quotes and music from the show so it gives the vid a more, I don't know, intimate feel?

The Fall by dodo00228
[James Bond crossover] Ok, I have to admit that I'm not really sure of what's happening in this video but I still really like it. The crossover scenes are well done and I love all the bits with Lestrade.

The Reichenbach Anthem by Moriarteaanyone
[Reichenbach] Fast editing and a nice change from all the slow Reichenbach vids.(Music: Hero by Skillet)

Medicine by CrazyBoutBillie
[Post-Reichenbach] Lovely vid about John grieving and Sherlock returning. I love the mood the song creates as well as the scene between John and Molly, a relationship that doesn't feature much in fanvids (or on the show, really). (Music: Medicine by Daughter)

Outsider by duchesscloverly
[Mycroft/Lestrade] I'm not really into Mystrade (except for Pru's girl!Lestrade fic, which I adore) but I do enjoy the occasional fanart/vid about them. I thought this was very well done as well as being quite sad. I also enjoyed Those Things You Do by the same vidder, who you should check out for more Mystrade vids. (Music: Outsider by Will Young)

Mission Impossible by Radculas
The vidder says it's a trailer mashup but there's no dialogue from the M:I trailer so it might just be the music? I'm not sure. Anyway, the important bit is that it's a Mission Impossible AU (kind of) and it's a great action vid. I tought the scene where Mycroft explains the case was very well edited.

yesnotoaster: (Sherlock - Thinking)
I am currently working on another rec post but I thought these two vids deserved their own post. Yes, they are that good.

I meant to insta-rec the first when I watched it in april, I don't know what happened. Anyway, it's called (22)1BR/1BA and it was made by [ profile] purplefringe. It's a post-Reichenbach vid about how John copes with Sherlock's death. It is amazing and it might possibly be my all time favourite vid about John Watson. There are no words to describe how much I love it but I still managed to leave a comment to the vidder that captures part of why I love the vid: "I like the tone of the vid, how it shows a John who is lost and sad and lonely, who doesn't really know what to do but is trying to figure it out." Check it out, take a moment to contain your feelings, and let the vidder know how brilliant their vid is.

Before presenting the other one, let me tell you about my Sherlock dream vids of which there are three. I want a post-Reichenbach vid about Sherlock bringing down Moriarty's web, a vid about Mycroft being all mysterious and powerful, something stylish with international intrigues and finally, a vid about the relationship between Sherlock and Mycroft.

The next rec is exactly what I wanted dream vid #3 to be. It is called Corner of Your Heart and it is by a new vidder called forexitsigns. It is absolutely gorgeous and heartbreaking and gives me all of the Holmes brothers feels. It even has young!Sherlock&Mycroft! Watch it, shower the vidder with praise and then run to their other Holmes bros vid, Time Spent. Once you feel like your heart might burst from all the Holmes feels, leave a comment to tell them what an amazing vidder they are. Seriously, guys, there are three comments in total and two of them are mine. Surely I cannot be the only one who thinks these vids are brilliant.

I guess this is going to be a thing now? I don't know, I just have a lot of feelings about Sherlock that I need to share in rec form. I read very few fics last year, so some of the recs are a bit old but I separated them so that you didn't have to go through things you read ages ago.

Fics and vids under the cut! )
yesnotoaster: (Sherlock - Thinking)
Let me ruin Valentine's Day by posting this heartbreaking Sherlock fanvid.

It's based on Alone On the Water by MadLori, a fic in which Sherlock gets sick and dies. The fic is almost one year old, but I had never heard of it until last week. The few snippets I've read on Tumblr made me tear up so when someone posted the vid I was wary. I waited 24 hours before giving in and watching it.

It made me cry, you guys.

I wasn't going to read the fic because I tend to avoid this type of story (thinking about Yellow Means Slow still makes me sad) but now I know that I can never, ever, read it because it will kill me. (Watch out for the inevitable "OMG I read it and now I want to die" update later this week.)

Anyway, sorry for ruining your day. I'll try to make it up to you later today.

Two dark!Merlin fanvids: Gimme & Dark!Merlin. I like that it is Gaius' death that sends Merlin over the edge in the first one and love the bedroom scene in the second.
Hot in Herre A silly sexy Eleven vid.
Do What You Want Fun Eleven&Amy&Rory vid.

Don't Leave Me Holmes/Watson (2009 movie)

Evil!Sherlock AU In which John and Sherlock are a pair of murderous psychos who toys with the police. I'm not usually a fan of dark AUs in fic form, but this one I'd like to read. It's so creepy/sexy!


Sweethearts is an imaginary movie starring David Tennant, Billie Piper and Paul Bettany in the role of SIS agents. I really wish it were real. (on Tumblr, go back one page to see the rest)

But first, a rec. Absolutely Cuckoo by [ profile] zoetrope. It's 46 seconds of awesomeness, people. Click and watch.

As for the crazy dream, it started with me walking in a park. A man was walking toward me and I felt threatened so I shot him repeatedly until he finally fell on the ground. Then I realized it was Jesus. I spent a good portion of my dream walking around, crying and feeling guilty. Then, during the funeral, I went to the park again and Jesus appeared and made a speach about how I shouldn't have worried, people kill him all the time. Then he put an arm around my shoulder and lead me toward the funeral so that we could tell everyone that he was back. The last thing I remember thinking before I woke up was that finally, I believed.

*pokes brain* You're so weird.

SGA Fic rec: Meet The McKays by [ profile] sdraevn (McKay/Sheppard)
That story is hillllllarious! I laughed from beginning to end.

Random SGA thing: In French, they call him Mackay. o.O

Two confessions: Lifehouse is my guilty musical pleasure. I love The Rock.

I watched Pride & Prejudice the other day, the Kiera Knightley version. It wasn't too bad, but I can't say I enjoyed her in the role of Elizabeth. I did, however, like the first propositioning scene very much. And Bingley was just the cutest thing.

I also watched The Life Aquatic, which was a quite enjoyable lunch for the eyes.

I'll end this completely random post by saying that I am looking forward to see more of Matt and Danny on Studio 60.

Oh, and one last thing, I still haven't placed the guy that played the restaurant owner in SG-1 Memento Mori, so if you could watch the beginning of this clip and tell me where I could have seen the guy behind the counter, I would be very grateful. Thanks to Madelyn, I'll be able to sleep tonight. :P

Wombats and Superheroes by [ profile] lalejandra (Elijah Wood/Adam Brody) PG
That was all he needed—a crush, like a five year old, and visions of Elijah as evil Lois Lane to his evil Superman.
yesnotoaster: (SGA)
I just finished reading all Madelyn's John/Rodney recs. I feel so accomplished. *beams*

I friended [ profile] sga_newsletter a few weeks ago, and I kept seeing mentions of Sparky. I quickly learned that it was the 'ship name for John/Elizabeth. I was curious about its origin (I'm used to names being smushed together, it might sometimes be ugly (Bangel?!?) but at least it's (usually) recognisable, unlike the weird HP 'ship name (Guns and Hancuffs, Pumpkin Pie, Leather and Library )), so I googled it and found out that it was named after the spark between the two characters. And then I laughed for five minutes.

The spark between the two characters? What spark? Sure, Elizabeth does seem to have a crush on John in some episodes, but that's it. I never saw anything more between the two of them. Hell, when I think about Elizabeth in a relationship in Atlantis, and by relationship I mostly mean sex, I think about Grodin, Bates and Ronon. And she could totally have Caldwell, too.

That's also why, when people ask "the big question" about who (Teyla or Elizabeth) Sheppard will end with, I roll my eyes. There have been moments between John and Teyla, but nothing that screams UST to me. I don't even think Teyla sees John that way.

The more I think about it, the more I cannot see John in a relationship on the show. He's...I don't know. Distant, maybe. Kind of untouchable. i can't see him play the love game.

And that's not because I'm a slasher at heart. I love Clex with all my heart, but on the show, I'm waving the Chlark flag. On SGA, though, the only pairings I can really see are Ronon/Teyla and Elizabeth/people-I-have-named-before. No John/anyone, no McKay/anyone. I guess I like the friendship pairings better.

Alright, enough thinking, I'm off looking for another source of recs. Oh, and you should totally read Shielded In My Armour, there's cuddling.
