Anonymous said: Hi! I've been looking for a fic I read a long time ago and I just can't find it. It's a Johnlock crack fic AU where Sherlock and John work in an adult/sex shop. I don't remember all too much except that there may have been a bit where they go to a convention and have their own stall..?
The asker followed this up by letting us know that they found the fic: it’s ”The Vibe” by ms_soma.

reichenfeels221b said: Hi! My friend and I are both looking for a fic that is in the soulmate AU. People have names written on both wrists, but one name is their enemy, and the other is their soulmate. I can't remember a ton of details, but I know that Sherlock's mother always wore gloves to cover the names, and *SPOILER* Moriarty's names were both Sherlock.
ithinkthereforeisherlock: Crap, I’ve read this fic, I know it. I feel like I’ve read it multiple times! Maybe under our soulmate AU tag? The name is just slipping away from me…
EDIT: It is Sinister, Dexter by one_windiga.

Title: Not Yet Dead by Castiron
Summary: Sherlock Holmes has long been fascinated with (and haunted by) the tragic story of his namesake cousin. When his nightmares about it grow unbearable and he starts seeing hypnotherapist Jim Moriarty, however, Sherlock begins to wonder whether he himself is his cousin’s reincarnation. Have Sherlock and the modern John Watson known each other before this life? Can Sherlock solve a nineteenth-century murder and prove the historic Dr. Watson innocent, and also solve the current string of oddly-posed unidentified corpses?
Pairing: none (one-sided, past-life Johnlock)
Rating: Teen and Up Audiences
Warnings: Major Character Death
Word Count: 105,297
Review/opinion: From the submitter, thefandomwholived: In my opinion, this is one of the most brilliant case!fics in this fandom. I found all the cases well-thought and the story both original and captivating: I could have never anticipated all the plot twists I would encounter, even though the clues are there. Moreover, I love Castiron’s style, easy to read, yet never banal or flat.
Residentbunburyist: This was definitely an interesting concept, and I liked the characterizations for the most part. I was especially pleased with Sally— I always enjoy stories that flesh Sally into a fully realized and interesting character while still allowing her to keep her dislike of Sherlock, because hey, he’s not that likeable to a lot of people. The plot twist at the end was one that I feel like I should have caught on to so much faster than I did, because the submitter was right in saying the clues were very clearly there, but the author had done a good job of not even allowing my mind to wander in that direction until shortly before the reveal, so that was actually pretty fun. My main complaint about this story was that I felt it dragged on for far too long. Much of the middle section felt repetitive to me, and I think could have been sliced down substantially. And as obsessed as Sherlock was getting with the cold case of the former Sherlock Holmes, I was a bit unconvinced that he’d leave a serial killer who had racked up— oh, I lost count— over a dozen kills in a matter of months that no-one, Sherlock included, could figure out in the slightest, without taking a substantial interest. But other than that, I enjoyed this.

Anonymous said: I feel disgusted about how you abuse the term 'high functioning'. It's really disrespectful to use that term for fangirling, the term is for diseases, not to use for fun.
residentbunburyist: Yes, well, the wonderful thing about the English vernacular is that it is constantly shifting, and certain phrases become used in capacities that aren’t one hundred percent accurate to the original definition, but are pretty easily understood when looking at the surrounding context by the majority of people who know how the language works. And as the function of language is not actually to be pedantic, but to be understood by the people you’re trying to communicate with, as long as most folks get what we’re going for, I’m going to go ahead and say we’re okay.
If you’re upset with the hyperbolic or colloquial usage of words, I’d say that English probably isn’t the language for you. Petition for Newspeak to become a thing. Until it does, just think of us as the ‘doubleplusgood fangirls’ and avoid room 101.

Anonymous said: Hello, love your blog by the way! My encyclopaedia of Sherlock fics :) Anyhow, I was just wondering if there were any camp!lock fics, or something of the idea of either John making Sherlock go camping or they have to go camping for a case. Bonus if they fall in love and eventual smut :) thanks!
ithinkthereforeisherlock: Yup, I think we have a camping tag! This ask sounds familiar - try searching our blog for “camping” (instructions on tags page).
