Recs and Reviews
The dynamic manic_intent writes between Sherlock and Gregson here is fabulous, Gregson entirely centered, confident in his skin, and able to throw Sherlock off-balance as a result. The POV switches between Gregson and Sherlock in scenes set both before the start of the show and after the reveals of season 1, and watching their relationship develop, always casual but increasingly important to both of them, is deeply satisfying.
Elementary was never going to make anything like this Sherlock’s backstory with Gregson – they certainly weren’t going to include the stealth Sherlock crossover! – and some details have indeed been Jossed by season 2, but the relationship this fic portrays is so richly textured that it nonetheless remains incredibly convincing.
