The New Year | greywash (Sherlock/Lestrade)

Also known as fizzygins on Tumblr, where she is often hilarious and sometimes gives teasing glimpses of more Good Morrow to come, she's probably my favorite author in Sherlock fandom. Her stories leave me breathless (and not just because her sentences tend to go until she runs out of breath writing them, I suspect.) The writing style isn't for everyone. Take the warnings seriously. But it's genuinely the best story in this pairing.

I don't remember what got me into Sherlock/Lestrade a couple months ago - it probably has to do with Sherlock's time as an addict, before he formalized his detective work. And he is all of those messy things in this story, sneaking into labs to do his work, pushing everyone to the edge because he's unable to channel his arrogance. But this is Lestrade's story, and instead of the usual guilt trips about Sherlock's age or trying to clean him up, it's selfish, agonizingly emotional and so, so plausible.

And now it's back to Game 4 of Rays vs. Red Sox. Keep yesterday's momentum going and make this a real series, boys.
