Parallel Master Post

Title: Parallel
Author: [ profile] brbsoulnomming
Rating: M, for sex, death, and mature themes
Pairing: John/Sherlock, OFC/OFC
Wordcount: 77,400
Warnings: Original characters; sex; off-screen death; mild, consenting somnophilia
Summary: Written for a prompt over on [ profile] sherlockbbc_fic: There's a case at a secondary school/University, some series of threats or string of bizarre murders that has the entire campus shaken. In the course of the investigation, Sherlock and John meet two students. One is well liked if not popular, athletic, intelligent without showing off, involved only because they were close to a victim or witnessed something important. The other is a loner with no regard for social norms, an insufferable genius, always in the chem lab, and involved because everyone, including teachers/professors, think they're behind everything.

Sherlock and John are responsible for these two meeting. And, because they both want to help with the investigation, they get to watch them become friends and fall a little in love. And that makes them feel things about themselves that they've been working very hard to not feel, thank you.

You're in Sherlock fandom? *gloms!* I should have figured, you're always in the awesome fandoms! XD

...I also didn't actually know that anyone still remembered that! My roommate agrees with you and is poking at me to update, so it's quite possible I'll have an update of that soon.

I found this from a cross-posting on my friends page, and i just want to make the point that this is THE BEST case!fic I have ever had the good fortune to come across. Believable OCs throughout, in-character throughout, much love for the shock blanket and other BBC!canon references and a truly fantastic happy ending!

Why yes, I will be stalking your page adding you to my watch list.

[identity profile] 2011-05-30 03:09 am (UTC)(link)
:D Thank you so much! This was my first case!fic, and I enjoyed writing it so much; I'm so pleased you liked it! And that you enjoyed the references and the characters as well, of course!

I read this all evening yesterday and simply couldn't stop reading until it was two hours past my bedtime and I had reached the ending.

Very much enjoyed seeing Sherlock and John mirrored by Sam and Fiona and really really loved the happy ending. (Oh, and the case was excellent, too!)

Thank you!

[identity profile] 2011-05-31 01:07 am (UTC)(link)
Eee, I'm so thrilled you liked it that much! And that you enjoyed the ending! I'm such a sucker for happy endings; there was no way I couldn't give this fic one.

Thank you so, so much! <3

[identity profile] 2011-05-31 09:39 pm (UTC)(link) you.

This was impossible to stop reading, might have ruined my possibilities to pass tomorrow's exam, but at least atm I'm going to go with "Worth it!". Should really have know better than to start reading something with 77 000+ in wordcount.

Really enjoyed reading it! Loved how the relationship between John and Sherlock evolved :)

Eeep, I hope you do well on your exam! But thank you so, so much! I'm so thrilled you enjoyed it that much! :D :D

Thank you thank you! <3

I read all of this over two nights (I would have read it all in one night but had to get up early one morning) and I can't tell you how much I love it. I completely forgot I was reading fanfic! It's been ages since I've read a multi-chaptered fic of this length (short attention span) but I just HAD to keep reading. This is brilliant!

[identity profile] 2011-06-14 12:34 pm (UTC)(link)
I just finished reading this and I absolutely loved it. The OCs were brilliant (not that I normally have an issue with OCs, but it's unusual for me to enjoy reading their sections as much as the main characters.)

Thank you for all your hard work!

Ooo! A lovely long fic to sink my teeth into!
*hugs* I love long fics! :D

[identity profile] 2011-07-31 09:32 pm (UTC)(link)
I love this fic so much!! I already said so before, but now that I see it posted properly and un-anonymously, I feel the need to say it again: AWESOME! The girls are probably my favourite OCs ever! :)

[identity profile] 2011-09-30 01:17 pm (UTC)(link)
I read it in two days and left much work IRL undone, it was worth it!
Really can't begin to describe how much I loved the morning part, it was just perfect.
