“How long did you keep a picture of me?” Sherlock says, and his voice is rough and low.
John opens his eyes. “Long enough it wore holes at the creases.”

(Sherlock/John, NC-17, 4800 words)
In which Sherlock did some modeling for Calvin Klein in the 90’s. Underwear modeling. And John was (and is) very appreciative of this.
I have a thing for fics in which one character wanks over pictures of another. Is there a name for this kink? Can I create a name for this kink? Well anyway.
His teacher had just looked at the picture and shaken her head, remarking, “It’s breathtaking, John. Absolutely breathtaking. You have such an eye for the camera. And for your subject, your muse.”
“He’s – he’s not my muse.” John had returned sheepishly.
Camera Obscura, by sheburns1
(Sherlock/John, explicit, 6,998 words)
In which John takes up photography, Sherlock is camera shy, and John helps him get over it.
There is a wonderful build-up of tension in this fic. And…this might be the only fic in this list to have legit plot. …Not that there’s anything wrong with not having plot.
For several more minutes, John tried to decide whether he wished their conversation to be inane, profound, informative, or provocative. Finally, he said, “D’you ever wonder what it would be like if we had sex?”
John was not sure precisely what he expected to hear in response, but it was not what Sherlock said, which was, “All the time.”
Anterograde, by Berlynn Wohl
(Sherlock/John, explicit, 6,264 words)
In which Sherlock and John want to try having sex, but they don’t want it to screw up their friendship, so they decide to drug themselves so they won’t remember (bear with me here) and film it. Then they leave a note: yes or no. If yes, it was successful, and they can watch the tape together. If no, then they destroy the tape and pretend like it never happened.
DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME, FOLKS. Okay, I know this sounds weird and maybe mildly creepy, but holy goodness, I love this fic. I would have had this post up earlier, but when I skimmed through this looking for a good quote to pull, I got sucked into re-reading it. So I had to go back and skim through for a quote again. But I found myself re-reading it. Again. That is how much I love it.
