Jamie’s comment:

I’m a sucker for hate sex fics, and this didn’t disappoint. The plot is intriguing and clever, and the AU itself is very realistic with nice nods to the BBC canon; also, Jim and Irene are written with sexiness and ease, and the speech is laugh-aloud amusing when it wants to be. This is very definitely worth a couple of hours of your time.

Alfie’s comment:

A fandom classic which has become a fandom of its own: it’s a brilliant fic. Novel length with intelligent case and incredibly hot gay sex - what more could you want? Also including BAMF!John and a cast of well written, believable, loveable OCs. If you enjoy the main fic, I recommend the ‘DVD extras’ and other offshoot Bravo Baker ‘verse fics.

Talented People With Interesting Skillsets (link to series on AO3)

Author: CharleyFoxtrot (original fic) & others (extras)

Rating: Explicit

Pairings: Sherlock/John, Sally Donovan/Harry Watson

Summary: A precog, a telepath, an empath and a clairvoyant walk into a bar. That their names are Sally Donovan, John Watson, Greg Lestrade and Sherlock Holmes may or may not be highly relevant. 

Length: J.B. Rhine Was Kind of a Dick - c.25000 words over 7 chapters; Crazy Men With Guns c.38000 words over 9 chapters. (Plus additional works)

Alfie’s comment:

Clever, well characterised, easy to understand and believe AU - you half forget that the ESP skills are anything other than part of who the characters are. I really enjoyed reading both of the main fics and the additional riffs and remixes, and I hope they keep writing in this ‘verse.

Pairings: Jack/Ianto

Summary: Jack is an artistic photographer, Ianto works in a small, independent, family-owned photograph development lab. Jack wants Ianto to pose for him, but Ianto’s going to take some persuading - especially since Jack wants him to pose nude…

Alfie’s comment:

A lovely litte AU and a fic that I really enjoyed - from an author that I loved anyway. The characterisation is very good, and the characters sit well in their reassigned, non-Torchwood roles. Possibly controversial views if you’re intro digital photography, but very enjoyable nontheless!

Pairings: Sherlock/Others; Sherlock/John

Summary: A chronicle of Sherlock’s formative lap related incidents. (Five times Sherlock came in his pants, and one time he didn’t.)

Length: 6 Chapters

Alfie’s comment:

I wouldn’t really be lying if I said I was mainly reccing this for Victor’s chapter, and for Sherlock saying “Unhand me!” It’s all well written and awesome (and you feel awful for Sherlock at times), but Victor’s chapter is hot.

There Are No Genes For Fate

Author: lily_winterwood

Rating: Teen

Pairings: Sherlock/John

Summary: It’s as if the past few years of building his reputation as the most accurate and merciless Identifier in London don’t count, because the instant John Watson stepped into his life he had turned it upside down/ With one little lie, Sherlock finds his entire world crumbling at the edges. Gattaca/Sherlock fusion AU.

Length: 11 Chapters

Alfie’s comment:

I wouldn’t usually rec a non-Wholock crossover, but this fic stood out for me. I’m pretty sure that you can read and enjoy it without having seen Gattaca as the ‘verse is explained very nicely (but I would recommend it as a film if you’re into sci-fi… or Jude Law being incredibly attractive and a great deal of pretty suits), although the fic contains major spoilers for Gattaca as it is a wonderful, seamless fusion of Gattaca and The Reichenbach Fall.
