Recs: Sherlock BBC

Sherlock BBC is an enormously active fandom, and I can't pretend to have sampled more than a tiny fraction of the offerings, but these are my favorites to date. Thanks to justjuly4  for her suggestions; feel free to add your favorites in the comments!


Fanfiction and Filks

The Paradox Series by wordstrings 
Sherlock/John fic series that just keeps getting better and better, hopefully still in progress as I am absolutely in love with it. Beautifully written, showcasing Sherlock's obsessive nature and John's unflappability and how things really might play out if they were actually a couple.

The Shape I Found You In and Lay Me Down byirisbleufic  and moony 
First bit is a hilarious epistolary fic, and the sequel alternates POVs by author. Sherlock goes to Stockholm, and eventually John follows him there. Hot and sad and breathtaking by turns.

Undercurrents by entangled_now 
As we've heard, Sherlock gets off on dead bodies, and now he wants John to imitate one. Weirdly hot in a creepy kind of way.

Alone on the Water by MadLori
Sherlock is diagnosed with a terminal illness that threatens to rob him of everything that makes him great. Sherlock & John friendship (mostly), and angst like whoa, as the summary warns.

Declarations of Mutual Devotion by waketosleep 
Sherlock decides that he and John should get married. Funny, IC Sherlock & John friendship.

Sherlock's Theme by morganstuart 
Funny Sherlock BBC filk set to the theme from Firefly. What's not for me to love?

Fanvids

Anomie by Charmax
Gorgeous, haunting atmospheric look at the London of Sherlock BBC, set to a remix of "People Are Strange" by the Doors.

I'm Bored by AcquaNeve
Pure silliness, but so apropos.

Hot n' Cold by chavivi86
There are several Sherlock/John vids set to this song, but this is my favorite.

The Internet Is for Porn by NoxFlavored
I adore the Avenue Q soundtrack, and this is skillfully edited for maximum hilarity.

Um, yeah, me too :P. My RL beta is responsible for this as well as my House obsession. But I just got her hooked on Castle and The West Wing, so we're even ;).

Fly, I read a very unusual angst story which I can't help recommending, the title on FF.net is "Starts Off Like This", and I never heard about the author before, but this piece of writing has style and dark unnerving atmosphere. It's short, by the way. Here's a link:
