    1. “Dear John” by BloodSeiryu, FourCornersHolmes, and Tindomerelhloni is, in my opinion, the best fan fiction out there. It’s a completed series, and the whole thing is a beautiful piece of literature. I shed more than a few tears while reading!

    2. Hi there! I’m looking for a fic(s) that resemble “The Wars We Fought, Things We’re Not,” wherein Sherlock and John get a child for the purpose of a case. (Parentlock/Casefic?) Thank you!!

    3. Hi there! I’m looking for parentlock/case fics, something that resembles “The Wars We fought, Things We’re Not.” I fell in love with the idea of John and Sherlock getting a kid for a case, and I haven’t been able to find any so far. Thank you!!

    4. Do you think you could possibly find some Sheriarty/JIMLOCK fanfic please? (Moriarty/Sherlock)
      P.s sorry about the capitalization – my phone autocorrects it as I usually type it in caps

    5. Do you think you could try and find a Jimlock (Sherlock/Moriarty) BBC Sherlock fanfic please? And feature it in one of the next fanfic lists? Loving this so far.

    6. This website looks awesome and super helpful for finding fanfics. The thing is, I’m looking for Sherlolly (Sherlock and Molly) fan fiction, and I only found one story, which I wasnt overly appealing. I know it’s an unusual combination, but I’m looking for relatively clean sherlolly fanfiction, and idk if there just isn’t a lot of it out there or it the filter on this website doesn’t work, but I need some help finding what I’m looking for.

      1. Hey Katherine, thanks so much for your comment – its actually an issue we’re aware of… simply put, we messed up. Sherlock was our very first list EVER when we launched over 2 years ago and we didn’t really know what we were doing. Only recently have we been doing better at making sure all ships are better represented and that our lists are helpful to everyone.

        That said, with our recent acquisition of and an upcoming rec list in Harry Potter, we’re stretched for time and won’t be able to update the Sherlock rec list until 2019. I’m so sorry you’ve had a poor experience with us and totally agree with where you’re coming from.

        Also we’re definitely getting lots of feedback about adding diversity in our lists around Rating and have been asked to add Ratings to the info on each of our fics. We’re working on this as well.

        Thank you so much for commenting! -Ronnie

        1. Thanks so much for the info, I can understand a time crunch. I can’t wait to come back later for some quality Sherlolly fanfics. 🙂

    7. I recommend the Fics Engazed series. They are fics with strong moments, but they are incredibly well written. If you have not read it, I recommend you take a look and see what they found.
