Like anyone needs a rec for this one - 240k hits on AO3, which is a lot, even for a story of 27 chapters.

Two Two One Bravo Baker Sherlock Holmes and John Watson meet in Afghanistan prior to the events of A Study in Pink. BBC Sherlock fandom.

What To Do When Your Flatmate is Homocidal

OMG. It has been a long time since a single story made me laugh out loud so many times. And cry.

"Bad news. We ran out of olives. Oh, you say, that is no very great problem. I myself have run out of olives on countless occasions."

Also: "John threw toast at my head. He’s so violent."

Also: “John,” I will say, “I would like you to channel your homicidal tendencies towards people that are not in our inner circle of beloved friends.”

Also: “John,” I said, “I feel you have forgotten to bring your pants to this argument.”

I'm sorry. Me and Lestrade will just be laughing over here like maniacs.

Tolleranza - a nice treatment of a trope. During the war, Steve goes with the Commandos to a brothel and gets one of the girls and her boyfriend to show him how to please a woman. Hot, with some language kink, and a side of suprise!UST.

I found that piece because she did a different variant on the "learn about sex" trope with 007/Q: Equanimity - wherein Bond goes to Q to learn about gay sex.

And THIS is the result of my recent realization that, duh, if the author on AO3 wrote something you really enjoyed, you should click over to their list of works and see what else they have going on. All her Tony/Steve is very sweet, including the virgin!kink-y Exactly the Way You Like It, which I had actually read before, and the delightful Steve Likes Tony. Poor Tony. :)

ETA: Not to mention another take on the same trope AGAIN, this time Jensen/Cougar. Impersonation.

No Stargate. Yes, Ratatouille (O.o) and also Terry Pratchett. No LOTR (FPS or RPS) but laughing to see 21 Jump Street. I wonder if she's a fan of the original show, like me, or if she saw that horrid looking movie that came out recently. Johnny Depp was just lovely in Jump Street.

Q/Bond rec

I can almost guarantee you this will be my only rec for this pairing (outside a reiteration that the 5 pieces hils rec'd yesterday were all fun!). I prodded [personal profile] bluemeridian's recs, and kept passing on things because they sounded dumb, or tedious, or too much trouble. Since I know she is an excellent and reliable rec'er, I think I my interest in this idea is already fading.

However! The above is actually sort of a Sherlock rec, actually. Q is cast as the youngest of THREE Holmes brothers, and the three of them spend a fair amount of the story texting. Beware major spoilers for BBC Sherlock - I think this story is set between the second and third seasons.

(Please note there is no warning on the story for Q's untreated eating disorder, though you could classify it as similar to Sherlock's cocaine use - Sherlock uses drugs to distract from boredom, and doesn't care about them so much when he's busy. Q uses hunger as a tool to ground himself in the humdrum of real life, from which he finds himself almost completely detached. In the end his relationship with Mr. Bond seems to be curing that detachment, and maybe the eating issues will be set aside. Anyway, just fair warning if that's a problem for you.)

[ profile] hils is the source of some very excellent fic recs. Which is why she is SUCH a troublemaker, in as much as she is the reason I read that first Cap/Iron Man fic...

In any case, she has done a little selection of Q/007 recs, Skyfall-universe.

They're not about to become my new OTP or anything, but they have a funny chemistry that's apparently easy to turn sexy, though the recs are more silly than anything else.

*shakes fist at [ profile] hils*

Looking for breakfast reading, I explored around and found this: Destroyer of Worlds. Jensen/Cougar. Inside Jensen's nerdy little needy head. Cougar is a looming, unachievable temptation, and Legless Pooch guest stars in a pirate hat.

It was so very, very lovely, that I clicked over to check out what else she had done. Not much Avengers, but then, there's this:

For America

Asdkwjotejgkdwoi! And they say masturbation won't make you go blind. Dear Lord, somebody should confess to this, because Captain America wanking off in the shower like that has got to be some kind of wonderful, chocolate covered sin with whipped marshmallow cream on top.

Do you need something sweet and seasonal?

Subordinate Clauses is J2 (see I TOLD YOU!). Jensen is an architect who has lost his job, Jared is Santa's son, and the workshop is a structural nightmare that needs to be remedied.

I loved this, and with some editing, may read it to The Barbarian before bed tonight. It is a little bit of romance, but toally G-rated.

I am seconding [personal profile] princessofgeeks on this one.

If you have even the SLIGHTEST interest in the Sherlock with Cumberbatch and Freeman as Holmes and Watson, you *must* read this. Also, if you just want a really excellent example of over-the-top PWP written convincingly and in character and really, really well, *amazingly* well, you should read this just as an example of what really good fanfic can be.

BTW, pls not to mention to Husband that I am reading even this one piece of Sherlock Holmes slash. The only thing that would prevent the divorce filing would be that it is so clearly based on Sherlock, and not on the original stories...
