The Prize by [info]trillsabells
On 29 January 2010 an unknown Event wiped out 98% of the population. This is the story of the survivors, four months on. Based on this prompt here (AU, Sherlock/John, post Apocalypse, NC-17)
I'm surprised I didn't try this when I first encountered the story at the Sherlock Holmes fest. This is definitely a satisfying, wonderful and enjoyable read. The world building, the characters interactions, the story plot itself, everything about this is amazing. Even the action scenes were perfection. So go readREADREADREAD!

Across the universes - zihna
Did you know that at this second, you're in not one, but an inifinte number of universes, all running parallel to each other? Here is a universe where you didn't put on your socks this morning, and here is one where you died, and here is one where you're not you at all, but someone else entirely.

Or, ten universes John and Sherlock never existed in. (Sherlock/John, AU)

These are really fascinating outtakes on Sherlock and John in different settings/universes/roles.

Gordian - fresne
On any given day, Sherlock might come out of the bathroom smelling like an Alpha on the hunt (Alpha #8) or an Omega in heat (Omega #9), a Beta brooding (Beta #3), or like no gender at all. The last one was his actual scent, which wasn't so much scentless as confusing. At least in an adult.

If Sherlock and John were the sort of people to read Mills and Boon novels, they could have said that what occurred was because destiny intervened and set two destined lovers in the one true pairings path.

It was the lasagne. (Sherlock/John, AU, NC-17, Omegaverse)

A very fascinating Omega fic. Love the descriptions about smells and the fact that Sherlock is wearing perfumes to hide his Unpresented state.

Two Coffees One black One with Sugar please - Linpatootie
A somewhat pointless experiment on Sherlock's behalf leads to John having to re-evaluate pretty much his entire life. (Sherlock/John)
Snippets of slice-of-life situations in Sherlock and John's lives that made them grow closer together and step into another phase of their relationship/bond.

Love is a much more vicious motivator. Takes place after "The Reichenbach Fall". (Sherlock/John, NC-17)

*ugly sobbing* This fic is amazing.

The year that never was - emotionanalysis
An originally unnamed fill for this prompt. One morning John wakes up to find London empty except for him and Sherlock. (There may or may not be a not-so-subtle reference in the title.) (Sherlock/John)

Bittersweet and sad but then it turned into a hopeful fic as they finally appreciated life.

East of the Sun-- Part 1 | Part 2 by plalligator
John rather thinks he might have been something else before he was, well, John. A discarded coat, maybe, worn through at the elbows, frayed and stained; or some bright-eyed bird or mammal; or a few inky, smudged sheets of newspaper; or a handful of rich, red clay. (Sherlock/John, AU)

Bells are ringing  --- Basingstoke
"Oh bloody fucking DAMN!" Sherlock shouted, apropos of nothing. John nearly dropped his tea.

John turned and found Sherlock shaking his passport. "Mycroft made me French!"
(Sherlock/John, crack)

And so they had the fastest wedding ever.


The Avengers

No Hard Fillings - Anonymous (Tony/Steve, AU, wip, G)
prompt: Tony owns the chain PIES 'R US, which just happens to be across the street from a family owned pie shop called ROGERS' PIES. The baker at ROGERS' is the one and only Steve, and Tony attempts to woo him away from ROGERS' PIES to come and work for him. Steve refuses. A PIE FEUD COMMENCES. Pies are eaten, sex is had, contests are won and lost, and in the end: EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL AND NOTHING HURTS.

Bonus points for an appearance by Dean Winchester as "Pie Judge."

The prompt itself is made of win. I just couldn't resist reading. As always Tony gets the best snarky dialogues and when he's up against Steve, lots of snarkiness follows.

Two or three ain't bad -- [info]plingo_kat (Tony/Steve, wip, various character cameos, PG-13)
Prompt: Tony wants Steven, but knows that Steve is a romantic at heart. Tony realizes his usual charming ways won't quite cut it, so he instead turns to his bros for advice. This might include learning to cook an actual meal from Pepper, hapless discussion on romance in general from Thor, or Clint being around to roll his eyes and tell Tony why he's an idiot. Anything you want!

This shouldn't have been hilarious if it weren't for the Tony voice narrating his attempts to woo Captain America. It's just too amusing to imagine this without actually smiling.

(aka that time zara wrote 8k worth of dick jokes.)

Random and entertaining. This made me giggle a lot because I can actually see Tony doing this.



Peanut Butter-Pumpkin Wedding Cake by [info]sparseparsley (NC-17, AU, Dean/Castiel)
Modern Day AU.  The good ones are sometimes assholes and always taken.

Lots of misunderstandings in one fic and everything about this fic is so amusing, I had to rec this as well.

Below Skyscrapers by [info]aces (Dean/Castiel, AU, R)
Modern Day AU.  "Castiel, this is Detective Dean Winchester," Bobby's saying, voice rough and real.  It's a distraction, although a brief one, the angel glancing at him before studying Dean again with that same silent intensity.  "He'll be on the Circle Murders too."

A lovely AU fic in which Dean dislikes angels and Castiel is only trying to do his job.

Dean Winchester, Straight Shooter by [info]triedunture (Dean/Castiel, NC-17 | 16,000 | exhibitionism, sex work, some h/c)
Modern Day AU.  Dean Winchester, star of StraightShooter.com, is a gay-for-pay porn star with a huge following.  Cas Novak signs on to do a scene with him, even though he dislikes "straight" porn stars on principle.  But Dean is more complicated than he first appears, and after inadvertently learning his secrets, Cas finds himself falling for him.

This is one explicit, hardcore work of fanfiction involving Dean and Castiel. Still, somehow this fascinates me.
