Title: The Whore of Babylon Was A Perfectly Nice Girl
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Pairing: John/Sherlock
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 33,038
Summary: Sherlock walks into a room and takes all the space right out of it. He does the same inside John's head.

Basically, the fic I wanted to write but couldn't. I have pages and pages of scribbles in my notebook that look like jumbled snippets of drafts for this, but this is so perfect, so complete, and such a great character study.

The Paradox 'verse has to be taken on its own terms but this version of how Sherlock and John could get together sticks to canon like glue. I'm not always down with the John Watson characterisation in this one but it works 90% of the time. Sherlock is spot on in every scene though -if you buy sexually experienced Sherlock, that is. It's a gorgeous read. I finished it in one sitting, which is unusual for me because I don't normally read anything with a word count above 10,000. I saw this one being recced all over the place, and yes, it's definitely worthwhile.

So go forth and read it and then leave a comment and say you enjoyed it. I did, and I'm not even a big fan of sexually experienced Sherlock.
