Disclaimer: Almost all of these fics were found at Archive Of Our Own (AO3) and they were selected according to my tastes and preferences. My opinions and reasons for putting them on a list are my own. So here’s the list of fics I read and liked/loved from the airing of The Reichenbach Fall to a couple minutes ago.
A Study in Mourning by bendingwind [G; gen; Sherlock/John; WIP]: Three years is a long time. Long enough for a heart to mend and move on, if not forget. Set after The Reichenbach Fall, mild John/Sherlock.
It’s a nice, sweet fic. Doesn’t pack quite an emotional punch but I was already emotionally compromised by The Reichenbach Fall so it did its job.
Hold Tight by ImpishTubist [T; gen; Lestrade & Sherlock]: Lestrade returns home one night to find an unexpected visitor in his flat.
In which Lestrade finds Sherlock in his flat post-Reichenbach and talk about why Sherlock is dead but not dead and what he should do and what he’s going to do. This is part of a short series, but I only read this one. They all seem to focus on the paternal!Lestrade & Sherlock relationship, which I’m okay with.
Reparations by LonelyBuzzard [G; gen; Mycroft & Sherlock]: Post-Reichenbach: Sherlock visits his brother.
In which Mycroft accepts his mistakes and the two brothers decide how to proceed in order to best protect John and the others.
The Mourning Woman by M_Leigh [G; gen, m/m; Sherlock/John, Molly]: “The last time Molly Hooper had a secret to keep, for somebody other than herself, she was fifteen years old.” Molly takes care of business, after the fall. Sherlock/John-ish.
Minds Like Ours Dream Up by BlackEyedGirl [M; m/m; Sherlock/John, Lestrade, Mycroft]: John can’t write up the case until he finds out why. He needs to write their story true. [Post The Reichenbach Fall, major spoilers.]
This is the fix-it fic that made everything okay.
