I haven't seen these stories recced all over the place yet so I'm gonna do it. Descriptions are spoiler-free for the movie, but fics themselves obv. likely to be spoilery:

Leaves Wreckage Where It's Blown - A sweet friendship/UST/unrequited piece with a bit of a punch at the end.

Circuit - Electrostim PWP. Perfectly in-character, unexpectedly hot and poignant even if you--like me--don't care for the kink.

Quite Enough - This story basically embodies my reading of the movieverse Holmes/Watson dynamic. Bittersweet hurt/comfort missing scene.

Psychologically Disturbed - I always feel uncomfortable reading threesomes/OT3 fics so I usually avoid them, but this Holmes/Watson/Mary + Irene fic really wowed me. It doesn't try to deny or disappear anything difficult about their canonical relationships, and it also doesn't use the threesome as a cheap way to resolve their canonical tensions/dynamics, but as a way to reconfigure them. And the characterizations are pitch-perfect where they adhere to canon and convincing where they expand on canon. Give it a shot even if you don't normally read OT3 fic!

One of the interesting things about Archive of Our Own is that the signal:noise ratio is really, really high, especially compared to LJ fic comms. I read everything with the Sherlock Holmes (2009) tag without reservation, because even the bad ones are generally better than you'd find anywhere else.

Still working furiously on SH fanart, but real life is getting in the way.
