John/Sherlock - Three times they ended up in bed together
At first blush, this is your standard trope favorite of a first-time John/Sherlock. And if it were just that, it would be a lovely little read. But it’s more. If you are in the mood for some thinky sex, for some unexpected and non-standard, beautiful language, then give this a go. It’s such a joy to find something different, and I love this story for that.
Points for gratuitous use of ‘Holmes’ and ‘Watson’, which makes my fangirl heart flutter.
Sherlock should be fencing in a wood-paneled hall somewhere surrounded by family crests, sipping brandy at the ancestral fireplace by the tapestries, not riding the push of John’s hips in jeans with John still molding him into the leather of their couch.
“If we do this I won’t go back,” John says before he can stop himself from making that clear. The truth is better; he knows how he’ll be, after. He knows how he’s been until now, consumed. Sherlock should be able to read and interpret this from the way John’s hands return to gripping and pushing and shaping him, making the improbable angles of their bodies slot up like the best sort of puzzle.
