If you are at all familiar with the BBC mini-series Sherlock, you are also no doubt familiar with the cheekbones, the coat, the Reichenbach feels and the homoerotic subtext galore. The homoerotic subtext especially permeates the series as thickly as cigarette smoke. Seriously, you could cut it with Mycroft’s cake knife. If you intend to read any Sherlock fanfiction at all, you must be prepared to ship Johnlock in some way, shape, or form.
Seeing as we here at 3 Chic Geeks love you endlessly, we went and did some serious field work
even though we detest fieldwork. Following a solid month of lurking on Tumblr, Livejournal, FF.net and AO3, and a bizarre incident involving Excel smut that you’re probably best off not knowing about, we came up with this. What is this, you ask? A list of the best fanfiction to read? Don’t be silly, of course not. We’d never do anything that useful. However, it is a comprehensive statistical guide that may consist of guesstimations at best to the most common objects Sherlock Holmes presents John Watson with while proposing marriage. You’re welcome.
