Cream, One Sugar by somethinginthewayful (T)
Two-shot fic challenge from Nocturnias Sherlock decides that he wants a girlfriend and Molly seems the most logical choice. But when she rejects him he has to win her back. Drabble, a product of boredom and Reichenbach Feels .

The Five Stages of an Illogical Death by AndInTimeThisTooShallPass (T)
‘Molly Hooper was going to die soon’. Sometimes, awareness of the end can provoke you to create a new beginning. ANGST. SADNESS. REDEMPTION. MAYBE EVEN LOVE.

Lime Blossoms and Other Pick Up Lines by silberias (T)
Sherlock gave her a posy of flowers one day, and Molly followed up on a hunch that he hadn’t chosen any random assortment of flowers because they were /pretty/ of all things. Sherlolly courtship through the language of flowers, based on prompt over on tumblr from Hihiyas.

Perfect Rings of Scars by Nocturnias (T)

Foolish Consistencies by Lono (K+)
“Molly is always the one to break away from their kisses.”

Her Last Bow by Petra Todd (T)
Like a knight going off to war, when Sherlock goes off to fight Moriarty’s network, he takes a favor from Molly Hooper.
(Of course, favors are normally *given* but Sherlock isn’t really one for manners.)

The Deaf and the Blind and the Color Red by Rayndrop
Sherlock abroad hunting Moriarty’s men; Molly at home carrying on & looking no one in the eye. If they ever had anyone else in the world, they’ve both given that up now. The only lifeline that connects them is an unreliable black-&-white camera in the St. Bart’s morgue & a one-way phone sending untraceable texts from locations undisclosed. It’ll have to be enough. Sherlock/Molly.

The Full House Series by Emcee Frodis (T except for two parts E and M)
When Sherlock asked Molly to help him, she never thought she’d be given a more difficult task. Until what he asked for next.

Post Mortem Series by dietplainlite (T except for the last one which is M)
This day, it’s like every fantasy she has ever had about him coming true, except thrown into a fun house mirror.

ALTERNATE UNIVERSE

Always Something by Emcee Frodis (T)
When Sherlock Holmes asked John Watson to move in with him, there was something he neglected to tell his new flatmate. Unfortunately, John Watson sees but does not observe.

Andromeda by Petra Todd (T)
By age seven, Sherlock Holmes knew two things with absolute certainty: that somewhere out there in the world he had a soulmate, and that he wanted absolutely nothing to do with her.

His Own Heart Laughed by Lono (T)
No space of regret can make amends for one life’s opportunity misused -A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens

“How could anyone so smart not understand such a basic human need as love?” Molly spends the night with Sherlock.

Sustain (or Concerto for the Famished in D-Minor) Series by MaybeAmanda and onemillionnine
“So now you’re behaving like a six year old ’cause he didn’t take you along on his honeymoon?” Lestrade said. “Grow the hell up.”

SERIES TWO (setting and characterization)

Longer Than The Road That Stretches Out Ahead by sunkenstandard (E)
Sherlock loses his mind and Molly holds on to it for him, and they see the world’s largest fibreglass Holstein cow. (post-TRF) (available Russian translation)

ALTERNATE UNIVERSE
