[Sherlock – Sherlock/John] Mazarin221b – The Boys of Summer

Title: The Boys of Summer
Author: Mazarin221b
Rating: NC-17 || Status: Complete
Summary: John and Sherlock meet the first time during the summer of 1992 in Bournemouth – John is a lifeguard, earning money during his gap year before he goes to medical school. Sherlock has been dragged along on a final family holiday before he goes to Cambridge. They meet, and its the most interesting thing that’s happened to either of them the entire summer.

He’s a bit of an oddity, this beautiful boy with his bucketful of jellyfish, but John likes him immensely. Proud and defiant and brilliant. John grins at him and gently swirls a stick through the bucket of jellies, watching them pulse and float through the water.

“You’re not wrong. You’re amazing, in fact. I’m John Watson. Would you like to go, maybe get something to eat?”

The boy grins, a bright, lopsided smile that makes John’s heart skip a beat. “The name’s Sherlock Holmes. And I’d love to.”


This was adorable! I love how John and Sherlock meet in this and how they are so into each other. I felt kinda bad for them once their time together was winding down and how they couldn’t really stay in touch afterwards. Of course they meet again later, which is pretty much the happily ever after I needed. XP
