Teenlock AU: John forgot to hide the kisses at the crime scene and the journalists made a pretty accurate deduction of their own
idk can you tell it’s potterlock i don’t think so
Someone’s figured out how to send anonymous Howlers, for good, and for not-so-good.
For tumblr user practicefortheheart who asked for potterlock for the Winterlock Exchange.
This is a really short potterlock fic, but it’s definitely one I want everyone on tumblr to go read right now. I really love this fic. I thought it was cute and the author did a great job of portraying John’s snark and Sherlock’s grumpy, analytical self. Not only is it humorous, but it’s also got an important message, especially in regards to tumblr.
This fic deals with something many of us are probably familiar with: anon messages, except in the form of Howlers. It starts out sweetly enough, with people sending nice messages to each other, but, as things are wont to do, soon things turn nasty and people start sending Sherlock hurtful messages, of which John has had enough of.
I’m going to take the opportunity to use this lovely fic to talk about something that is a big issue here on tumblr: anon hate. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen the people I follow have messages sent to them that were specifically written to be hurtful and put the other person down.
Not everyone was raised like me (I, who had it constantly ingrained in her head), but I’m sure at some point in your life you probably heard someone say, even if not to you, “if you don’t have something nice to say, then don’t say it at all.” If you didn’t before, you have now. Please don’t send anon hate to anyone. It’s unnecessary and surprisingly hurtful, even though these anonymous people really shouldn’t mean a thing to you. Be kind.That is the message in this cute little fic. Go read it.
:edit: This is Grace chiming in to say this fic was really adorable and well-done and a perfect analogy for cyber bullying, something we all deal with. Written and executed well with a relatable message and some cute fluff. Both Jaime and I highly recommend it! Especially if you’ve ever had to deal with anon hate.

My favorite quote:
“EVERYONE APPRECIATES YOU COACHING THE FIRST-YEAR, INTRA-HOUSE QUIDDICH SESSIONS! MOSTLY BECAUSE THAT’S VERY NICE OF YOU BUT ALSO BECAUSE YOU LOOK WELL FIT IN YOUR GYM KIT!”
John stood up, raised his glass to the Great Hall at large. “You are welcome!” he announced, and sat down to catcalls and wolf-whistles.

THIS RIGHT HERE, FOLKS. THIS IS WHAT FINALLY KILLED ME.
In which, Mycroft doesn’t approve.
Just a quick comic. I have a drawing class tomorrow and can’t risk making my hand tired. I’ll do the requests in my inbox at the end of the week.
After performance Sherlock.
Wasn’t even supposed to draw anything but I had a bad day. Drawing Sherlock makes me feel better.
He signs his correspondences to the police as Sherlock H, as he always has, and he signs his letters to his parents as SH — they can take what they will from the S. He signs his school assignments S. Holmes, and manages to get away with it because he is the only Holmes in his classes. FtM!Sherlock. Contains trigger warnings for trans issues and brief mention of suicidal ideation.
This fic by etothepii is about how a young girl named Sophie Charlotte Holmes grows up to become a young man named Sherlock. It’s very solidly written, the characterization was well done, and it had a very defined beginning, middle, and end; I liked it.
There wasn’t much that I didn’t like about this fic. I would imagine Mycroft would be way more accepting of Sherlock considering how supportive he was of Sherlock’s differences throughout the story, but I understand that his being less willing/capable of understanding Sherlock was a very important plot point, so it kind of had to be that way.
My favorite parts of this fic were Sherlock and Mycroft’s correspondences; they seemed very much like things the brothers would’ve done when they were younger. Also, I really loved the ending! It made me smile; in fact, most of this fic did.
This was a well-done, very quick read. It was straight and to the point.

My favorite quote:
Unfortunately, my favorite quote is from Sherlock and Lestrade’s conversation at the end of the fic, but it contains a major spoiler, so here’s another good one:
Soon, he needs to shave. He can see the bristles on his face, can feel them rough against the pad of his thumb. The first time he does it, he laughs — well into his twenties, and shaving for the first time. He’d never shaved before, when he’d been presenting as a woman — not his legs, and not under his arms, because he’d never seen the point. There’d never been any need. He’d always worn as many clothes as he could, to obscure his figure.
He uses a safety razor and still manages to look like he lost a fight with an angry sheet of paper (or a dozen).
But when he looks into the mirror, his face won’t stop grinning.

"Yes you are"
John’s over supportive rugby team/wingmen.
John being in denial will always be a beautiful thing.
7 year old sherlock yelling bee facts at other 7 year olds and john is standing behind him saying “Yeah!” every once in a while with his arms crossed
