This was cute, but I wasn't wowed.Five Times That Watson Did Not Wake Up in Canon
by Taz Rec
10,000 words. Five moments that lead to Holmes and Watson getting together.
This is the second Holmes five-things fic I've read where unlike most such fics, the five scenes are all from the same universe and build on each other to form one long story. This could have used some editing (mainly typos and oddly-placed commas), but was quite enjoyable.To Rise to the Occasion
by ponderosa Rec
1600 words. Surely a single uncooperative limb does not render a man useless.
Oh, this is great! I think there was an SGA fic where someone can't get it up (I have it bookmarked to read at some point), but you don't really see this sort of thing that often in fic.Jump the Gate
by blue_soaring Rec
2700 words. Once Watson regains the power of speech he isn't at all certain he wishes to utilise it.
I clicked on this because it had the tag "premature ejaculation" and I was curious. It wasn't quite what I thought it would be, and had a little more ashamed!Watson than I really care for, but I enjoyed it.Impecunious
by damned_colonial Rec
4000 words. So alarming did the state of my finances become, that I soon realized that I must either leave the metropolis and rusticate somewhere in the country, or that I must make a complete alteration in my style of living. -- A Study in Scarlet
Yes, you've seen me rec this one before. But this is an expanded version, now 4000 words instead of the original 600! This isn't exactly what I would want in a rentboy!Watson fic (like, I would want him to actually be a rentboy, not just mistaken for one!), but it's definitely enjoyable.At a Blind Corner
by eggshellseas Rec+
7200 words. Holmes discovers he possesses a curious power over Watson, and that Watson is a man who still has a few secrets.
Quite by accident, Holmes discovers Watson is submissive! I love how he proceeds to test his theory (and how Watson goes along with it).
