alchemine: (john looks up)
I slept so badly that I'm practically hallucinating with fatigue, and to add to the fun, I also started my period this morning. I really need for everyone here in the office just to stay far, far away from me, but will they? Probably not.

All this is to say that I'm kind of useless today. But I do have a couple recs of Sherlock stories I really enjoyed over the weekend:

Rags and Bones by emungere - Sherlock just wants to hold John's hand. Since he's Sherlock, the fact that it's no longer attached to John's body doesn't stop him. This is fantastically creepy and disturbing, and yet full of tenderness and love at the same time; Sherlock's way of grieving over (what he thinks is) John's death feels perfect for him, and he's just barely sane enough to recognize that other people will think his behavior is crazy.

Action Man by thesardine - Mycroft's POV (both as a child and as an adult), showing quite poignantly what it would be like to grow up with a sibling as different, and as difficult, as Sherlock. Really captures that brotherly love/hate dynamic between them, and also does a good job of depicting the way a very young child speaks, which is uncommon.

Vinegar Valentine by runic-binary - Moriarty sends Sherlock a Valentine's Day gift. It's as horrible and disgusting as you would expect a Valentine from Moriarty to be, and Sherlock enjoys it way more than he should. I love the bit about Sherlock running tests on the package before he opens it, and also his comparison of the red velvet wrapping to "arterial spray and phenolsulfonphthalein." Oh, Sherlock.
