Do you think it’s worth it to write Johnlock fanfiction nowadays? I used to write a lot of it back in the hayday and remain a huge fan, I’m wondering if people would still read
Hey Nonny!
ABSOLUTELY. This is probably one of the best times to keep writing: people are looking for "fix it's" to the series, stuff to read while stuck at home, and just fandom in general, especially fics, are highly-trafficked. I know fics for sure are still wanted, so TOTALLY write something! And if you ever do, please let me know and I'll boost it for you! <3
Hope you come back, Nonny! We love our fic authors and artists!!! <3

Hi Steph! I remember seeing a post with all your fics lists but I can’t find it anymore. If it is not too much to ask, could you post it again? Hugs🤗
Hey Nonny!
No worries! I have a permalink of all my fic recs at the following link:
If you're on mobile, copy-paste that link into your mobile web browser, and it will load up fine :) It doesn't work if you try to open it in the app, apparently.
You should then be able to get to all the pages from there! I'm going to have to be splitting up the pages again soon so I don't want to out-date this post by linking all the pages separately, so just go there hahah.
Hope that helps!

Hey Steph! Kinda random question, but I was curious: how often do you have your queue set up to post each day?
Hey Lovely!
Hahah Not weird at all!
Ah, CURRENTLY, it's auto-queued for 5 posts a day, and then I fill in the gaps with content so I can try to have 1 post every half hour between 7 and 5 EST. When my queue is fuller, I up the auto posting to 7 or 11, since those two times post at a nice time like 2:30 or whatever, instead of 2:36, because I hate weird times hahah.
Anyway, yeah, so it all just depends how much stuff I answer the night before, and how full my queue is (queue can only be 300 max posts, so I up the auto-posting when I can't put new asks into the queue). This keeps my blog ALWAYS active and why I think it survived as long as it has.
I try to always post the newest stuff in the morning, and then that stuff gets queued for "next day reblog" in the afternoon the next day. Then it gets queued for auto-reblog later on for a third post.
I have a system, and it took 6 years to get it how I like it, but it seems to work, it keeps people interested, and it keeps the interactivity going here. I love it. It's just a lot more work than people realize hahha. It's not "just a queue". It's "ensure I have a lot of interesting and engaging content, and show that I try to reply to a few asks every day so people know I'm here" kinda thing, hahaha.
ANYWAY, sorry, I always go on a tangent. I know I'll eventually get bored of it here or have to abandon for my own mental health, but it's been like 7 years now and I'm still here. hahah.
*HUGS* Cheers for taking interest in my inner workings, haha.

hey steph! hope you’re good :)
I was wondering if you have a recommendation for fics where either john spoils sherlock or the other way round? like one just wants to treat the other, and the other one is spoilt and pampered.
No worries if not!!
Hey Lovely!
Ahhhh, I think the closest I have are on my Swimming / Spas / Beach Community Recs page! Other than that, nothing comes immediately to mind because my brain is fried, hah.
Anyone have any they want to suggest? <3

Ok so this must be the dumbest shit you have ever been asked, but what does bottomlock and toplock mean? I pretty sure it is what I think it is but anyway thank god for this anon option
Hey Nonny!
Naw, not stupid, I've actually had this asked before! <3
It's literally denoting the sexual position of Sherlock:
Toplock: Sherlock Tops
Bottomlock: Sherlock Bottoms
Switchlock: Sherlock and their partners switch throughout either the story or the act itself.
That's all! Don't feel dumb: I try to open my apt door with my car key fob at least once a week, and will try to find my phone when I'm holding it switching music, LOL. <3

Assumption: IRL everyone thinks you love anything strawberry, but you're actually allergic!
LOL I'm not allergic to strawberries. I do love them though! Not "everything" strawberry though because the artificial stuff can get gross.
Anonymously tell me your assumpmtions about me and I’ll confirm or deny them.

dearest Steph. I am looking for a fic that I read forever ago and I cannot for the life of me find it. I assume that I first found it on your blog because frankly that's where I get all my reading material from, your lists are so amazing, well put together with tags and summaries and categories and you're just the best, like, ever.
The fic that I'm looking for deals with child abuse, and it's okay if you don't want to publish or go looking for it, but it basically plays both in the present and in the past in Sherlock's own childhood. A case they are working on brings back the memories for Sherlock, and there's chapters where he is a young boy going by the name William who runs away from home after being molested by his uncle, and he lives in a barn and visits the local library sometimes and survives all on his own for a couple months, always evading being found because he's terrified he has to go back to the uncle, but in the end he is found, and the uncle has been arrested almost immediately following Sherlock's disappearance. After this experience, Sherlock decides not to go by the name William anymore and go by his middle name Sherlock instead I believe.
Don't feel pressured to go looking for this or even publish it, but I'd love to find it again because it was very beautifully written and deals with the tragic and traumatic topic very well imo
Wishing you all the best and all the happiness, and hopefully a less stressful season ahead of you soon
Sending virtual hugs (only if you like hugs, otherwise imagine cool nod and finger guns that definitely make me look only cool and not ridiculous at all)
Thank you for letting us come to you with stuff like this, you're seriously amazing and wonderful
Hey Nonny!
Ahhh, no worries at all! A description like that will certainly help you find the story. I feel like I KNOW which fic this is, but I am not 100 on it....... Anyone able to pinpoint this one?
And thank you for your kind words, Nonny. I LOVE hugs and am so touch starved ugh. I want to be in a cuddle pile so bad. :|

Hey Steph! - I'm looking for a fic I read a while back. I believe there is something about we're all mad here, And Sherlock drowning in a pool of his own blood on the floor of the flat. --- thank you if you can, thank you if you can't.
Hey Nonny!
Ahhh, the name sounded familiar, but I haven't read it.... I found this on my MFL list:
We're All A Little Mad Here Series by angelblack3 (E, 98,019+ w. across 4 works || Series WiP || Dark AU, Obsessive Behaviour, Stockholm Syndrome, Torture, Kidnapping, Dark Sherlock, Abusive Relationship, Bondage, Aphrodisiacs, Rape/Non-Con, Painplay) – In this universe, Jim got a hold of Sherlock way before he ever met the ones that were meant to save him. Now, they're happy business partners. Though, according to Jim, Sherlock isn't nearly as happy as he could be. He should find someone like Jim found his dear pet Sebby. Sherlock is skeptical, until he finds an army doctor with a psychosomatic limp in a twisted sense of fate.
Not sure if that's it? I haven't read it so I can't help you beyond that!
Anyone know for sure what Nonny is looking for?

Hey there! No question here, I just wanted to say thank you! I am not exactly in the Sherlock fandom anymore, but I just rediscovered your blog and remembered how it was this blog that made me finally feel at home and welcome in the fandom which meant a big lot to me at the time. I was in a time of my life where the fandom was one of the very few things giving me joy and the escape I deperately needed, so you making me feel at home was very important to me. And I just thought that I would like to tell you that. Thank you <3
Hey Nonny!! *HUGS*
AHHHHH I'm so happy you had a positive experience here, and I am glad you're doing alright. Thank you so much for the lovely compliment!! <3 Seriously, it's such a nice thing to read! <3 Cheers Nonny!! <3 Have a great day!

hi!! i recently got into johnlock and the universe has somehow directed me to your blog (which is an absolute godsend omfg). have you got any good possessive!john fics?
Hi Lovely!!!
AHHHH!! I’m so glad you enjoy my blog!!! <3 Thank you so much! <3
AHHH you know what??? I don’t get asked this all that much at all! I think mostly because it’s easier to find Possessive Sherlock fics and people then just... forget LOL
So guess what?? You’re the prompter for any fics I actually tagged or filed with Possessive John! <3 A pioneer you are! LOL I’m combining it with a few of the Obsessive fics as well, since I don’t have many new ones.
As usual, gang, feel free to add your own!! <3

John seems annoyed to be second-best, Sherlock thinks, so Sherlock decides to give the departing woman (and maybe also John) a demonstration of who, exactly, John belongs to. But there's more than one level of sexual jealousy and more than one display of possession going on here, outlined in the window of 221b Baker Street. Part 2 of Lock and Key
Apodyopsis by QuinnAnderson (E, 3,347 w.,1 Ch. || PWP, Rough Sex, Table Sex, Anal, Sexual Tension) – Apodyopsis: (æpəʊdaɪˈɒpsɪs) noun. the act of mentally undressing someone. Part 2 of Undressed

Caves in the Mountains Are Seldom Unoccupied by starrysummernights & TheMadKatter13 (E, 7,925 w., 1 Ch. || Were-Creatures ||  Werebear John, Pseudo Bestiality, Rimming, Heavy Dub Con, Rough Sex, Come Inflation / Eating, Size Kink, PWP, Bratty Sherlock, Rutting) – “This isn’t something to play at, Sherlock,” he snapped. “If it doesn’t work out- what you’re asking of me- we can’t shrug and say 'oh well, at least we tried'.

My Life for His by QuinnAnderson (E, 8,816 w., 1 Ch. || Guardian/Protector, Greek Mythology || Growing Up, Sex, Religious Themes, Suicide, Minor Character Death) – It began when Sherlock was eight, and he attempted to climb all the way up to the highest branch in the old willow tree in his back garden. He'd thought he was still small enough that it could support him, but the second he'd grabbed hold of it to pull himself up, the branch snapped, and down he went, plummeting a solid twenty metres. The odd thing was, he never actually hit the ground.

The Kepler Problem by kinklock (E, 24,270 w., 1 Ch. || Sci-Fi AU, Alien Sherlock, Space Repairman John, Alien Biology, Horny John) – Working in uncharted space exploration was not as exciting as John had hoped, especially when it turned out to be mostly bot maintenance on uninhabited planets.

To finally go pro in the newly formed world of professional surfing and leave the dark memories of his past behind him as he rips across the face of a towering blue barrel. To lounge beside the beach bonfire every evening with an ice cold beer tucked into the cool sand beside him and listen to Pink Floyd and the Doors while the saltwater dries in his sun bleached hair. That's all he wants, that is, until the hot young phenom taking Oahu and the Hawaiian shores by storm steps up next to him in the sand in the second round of the 1976 International Surf Competition. (PUBLISHED AS ‘The Sea Ain’t Mine Alone’)
Proving A Point by elldotsee & J_Baillier (E, 186,270 w., 28 Ch. || Me Before You Fusion || Medical Realism, Insecure John, Depression, Romance, Angst, POV John, Sherlock Whump, Serious Illness, Doctor John, Injury Recovery, Assisted Suicide, Sherlock’s Violin, Awkward Sexual Situations, Alcoholism, Drugs, Idiots in Love, Slow Burn, Body Image, Friends to Lovers, Hurt / Comfort, Pain, Big Brother Mycroft, Intimacy, Anxiety, PTSD, Family Issues, Psychological Trauma, John Whump, Case Fics, Loneliness, Pain) – Invalided home from Afghanistan, running out of funds and convinced that his surgical career is over, John Watson accepts a mysterious job offer to provide care and companionship for a disabled person.

When this child is born, the angel comes into being to protect and care for them during their life on Earth. For John Watson, all he cares about in the world revolves around his Chosen, Sherlock Holmes. Watching him grow up though, the angel soon learns that God must have had a sense of humour the day he decided to make Sherlock, as trouble seems to follow him like a magnet wherever he goes. John can't decide what's worse, the idea of losing his Chosen one, or the fact that he may be breaking the most taboo law of heaven as he disguises himself as a human to better protect and befriend the beloved detective he's always watched from afar. He was meant to care for him. But what happens when caring evolves into something more? What happens when an emotion an angel is supposed to be incapable of possessing comes to life suddenly and viciously inside John's chest?

Yo, where do u watch leverage?
Well I first watched Leverage on a pirate website. But currently Leverage is available, with ads on IMBD! The ads suck but you know, I guess it gives you that "watching it live" feel.

@leoruby-draws LOL Totally Spyral! is a Grayson rewrite project of mine, turning it into a less queer-baity, less Nu52 ish Spy comedy/romance. It started as a one-shot idea before I got 4k in and realized that Dick hadn’t even gotten his alias yet, so I gave in, expanded it, and now we’re looking at 7-ish chapters.

Who do you prefer: Martin or Ben? Just wondering which one is your favorite, I know we all like both of them <3
Hey Nonny!
Ah, I lean more to being more of a Cumbercookie... I find him aesthetically pleasing in an odd way, but as Martin ages, OOOOOOOF I just. Mmm. The man knows how to wear clothes and make it look like art. Real talk though??? I want to be in the middle of a cuddle sandwich with the two of them, to be honest hahahhah. Mmm.

Do you know of any fics that have Mike Stamford in them more than just at the beginning, like being friends with and hanging out with both John and Sherlock or helping them on cases maybe? Thanks! Love how you help and guide those of us who can't seem to find what we need 💋
Hey Nonny!
Oh, that'd be fun fics to read! Ahhh, I can think of an AU fic with a more prominent Mike:
Eyes Up, Heels Down by CodenameMeretricious (E, 107,845 w., 43 Ch. || Sports Equestrian AU || Fluff, Angst, Humour, Rider!Sherlock, Groomer!John, Show Jumping, Slow Burn, Happy Ending) – Sherlock is a top eventing rider currently training at Baker Farms. John is the new groom who's been told to steer clear of the surly rider and his horses. Part 1 of Baker Farms
And this one I'm reading has John and Mike as good friends:
Red Lights Out by days_of_storm (E, 333,458 w., 103 Ch. || Formula One / Car Racing AU || Mechanic John, Driver Sherlock, UST, Friendship, Pre-Slash, Romance, Perfect Cooperation, Accidents, Manipulation, Slow Burn) – John Watson is an overqualified mechanic and former rally driver who works for McLaren. Silverstone GP is impending when he meets Sherlock Holmes, a prodigy driver whom nobody takes seriously, except for McLaren boss Greg Lestrade. (STILL READING)
I know there's a tonne more, but my brain is poopy right now.
Please add more, my friends!
