John doesn’t mind treating the homeless in the A&E. He only minds when they follow him home.
Note that while this story is tagged as underage, no sex happens until Sherlock is of the age of consent in the UK.
Let me start off by saying that I have a big soft spot for homeless Sherlock fics, especially because I love caretaker!John so much, so I was really looking forward to giving this fic a go.
The story starts off with student John treating Sherlock at the A&E, then returning home to find that the teen’s broken into his flat.
At the start of this fic, Sherlock is underage; he’s 15 years old while the author stated in the notes that John is 7 years older, putting him at 22. John does show interest in Sherlock before he is of age and there’s also an incident where Sherlock tries to offer him sex, but nothing besides a kiss happens before Sherlock is 16.
Though this fic was well written, the author does have a tendency to drop words, which could be easily fixed with a quick read-through. The plot was pretty straight-forward and coming out of it, there was really not much to cling to. This was mostly due to the fact that the story felt very rushed. The author talked about how much John and Sherlock couldn’t wait for Sherlock to finally become of age so they could be together, but none of the actual struggle was written in. Still, this fic is good for a nice, solidly written read.
Pairings: John/Sherlock, minor Greg/Molly

My favorite quote:
Mrs Hudson’s mouth is twitching with poorly restrained amusement. “And your brother as well, I’m guessing. Come along dear.” She sets a hand on Mycroft’s back and starts ushering him from the room. Mycroft sputters, looking like he wants to dig his heels in, but Mrs Hudson’s more stubborn than that. Sherlock smirks as their landlady efficiently hastens his brother out of the room and throws the door shut behind them.

"Sail" is absolutely a Sherlock song, and no one will convince me otherwise.
another commision from Inchells>; I asked her for some Kid Sherlock doing his version of science and she came up with the brilliant idea of Mycroft taking advantage to get some cookies.
Sherlock is determined to make the best darn cookies his brother has ever tasted!
S: And that’s why I would tell my past self about you, John.

FuckYeahTeenLock is proud to present our Two Latest Mods!
We’ve added two new moderators to the blog. Everyone welcome Archie and Jaime, better know as prolific teenlock authors archipelago and WhichWolfWins.
Here’s a little more about your new mods:
Jaime followed a shiny black Impala along the yellow brick road into fandom. There, surrounded by smutty fics and shiny gifs, she was introduced to a world of people who loved the same things she did. Upon discovering that she wasn’t the only one who thought maybe, just maybe, there could be something more between the beautiful men on her screen, Jaime put her fingers once again to her well-worn keyboard and decided to discover just what it might be. Again and again she fell in love and had her heart broken, but one thing that she never felt again was alone.
GAAAAAAAAAAAAAH YES PLEASE THIS I NEED FAN ART.
Sherlock got a letter from John during summer holidays
