Written for the kink_bingo prompt “orgasm denial/control”. Rated NC17 overall for mature content, language, sexually-suggestive behaviour, masturbation, sex, slash, and Victorian euphemisms.Summary
: A gentleman knows how to behave in public. The only thing “stiff” should be his upper lip. Fortunately, Holmes is only a gentleman when it suits him.
LSA sez: I’ve been meaning to slash these two forever and a day and haven’t done it yet. I’ve always been intrigued by Holmes. (Though honestly my fave incarnation of him has been as a teenager just coming into his abilities -- and his tragedy -- in YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES.) I’ve flirted with the fandom, but not followed closely. Then I saw Jude Law breathe life into what I’d dismissed as a boring and stodgy character, and Jane Turenne
make it scorchingly hawt in her fics. I’ve been kicking around ideas. Kink_bingo just gives me an excuse.
O sez: And yet, I had to drag her into the literary canon. :D I've been reading Holmes since I was very young (I got the "Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" probably around 7 or 8, and was utterly hooked.) So our discussion of the recent film consisted of LSA loving it (including the egregious Irene Adler), and me going "But but but but" a lot, till I found out she hadn't actually read canon. OHHHHHH. :D For someone who just picked up her Complete Edition (and is ripping through it like Calvin through a box of Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs), she's really developed a fine ear for the language. :D
For those of you who would like to follow along from Watson's official
perspective, herewith The Adventure of the Norwood Builder
