Fic recs

Hey all, It has been a  while since I have been on LJ to post, mainly because i've been lost in teh world of Pintrest and Ao3. But I'm back with several fic recommendations.

First up I've been immersed in the Sherlock fandom recently, especially Sherlolly- Sherlock/ Molly Hooper because they are just so damned cute. I'm not a Johnlock fan and I think the shipping war between the two is ridiculous.
There are some amazing stories and so here are a few:

The Full House by Emcee Frodis
In this one Molly helps Sherlock fake his death and then he stays with her whilst trying to bring down Moriarty's network. Very brilliantly written, excellent characterisations. Although Chapter 31 made me tear up. Well worth it.

Sustain or Concerto for the Famished in D minor by MaybeAmanda
Molly decides that she wants a baby and Sherlock, eager not to lose his pathologist, offers to help. Not Romantic to start with but heads that way. Not very Bamf Molly but damn it gets your heart strings. Slow road to love and Sherlock with the baby is Ovaries!exploding.

The Pirate and the Doctor by Petra Todd
I must have read the fic about ten times already. Basically Sherlock is a pirate set back in Victorian times. Molly is an assistant to her father the pathologist, only doing all of the work.  Sherlock kidnaps her in order for her to do some work for him and suddenly they are on the run from the East India Trading company. It's fantastic and detailed and I can;t express how much I love it.

Finally a shout out to my little brother (Havok) who has written a fic called John Grey which is a non-ship Harry Potter story. He hasn't posted it anywhere because he is somewhat shy but OH. GOOD. LORD. It's long, its well written, it turns the world on its head and the characters are just excellent.
Starting from book one, what happened if the Dursleys were just that little bit meaner, what happened if Harry Potter had an 'accident' before being allowed to Hogwarts. What if he became someone quite different?
If anyone wants to read this frankly amazing story, please email me and I'll send you the attachment because it is seriously long but oh so worth it. Havok really has made it his own and I am so proud of my little brother.

I completely understand the lure of AO3. Pretty much live there in the Avengers section myself. :)

Your brother's story sounds really interesting. I'd love to give it a read. My email is angelskuuipo @ yahoo dot com.

Excellent fics! I actually just read "The Full House" last weekend (better than many a published novel - it was brilliant). I proudly fly the Sherlolly flag on my ship - I haven't been so involved with a ship since 10/Rose. I just joined AO3 a few days ago and have been reading there nonstop. Very glad there is a censorship-free fic archive out there now!

It is amazing isn't it. Really gets your heartstrings. Glad there is another sherlolly on here. I hope to be writing more for this fandom. Have you checked out Petratodd's tumblr? She has some great sherlolly pic sets and lexie's artwork. She is amazing.

You're right about "Sustain". It definitely pulls at your heartstrings.

Have you read the sequels?

Yes, I have them on pretty much constant reread. Def on the Sherlolly train.
