Quick Like a Bunny (Sherlock/Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) (PG-13, gen)
ace, that coat, straight out of a romance, lithe, sherlock
Hi, everybody!

The idea for this story popped into my head as I was finishing up my Irene Adler fic, but I didn't think I'd really write it. Two days later, I had it drafted. Big thanks to my lovely betas, octette and kate_lear, for willingly wading into this insanity. Thanks also to endgame, whose post on the flat's layout proved tremendously helpful.

It's rated PG-13 for language, and it's gen, despite the machinations of Mrs. Hudson - Sherlock is asexual, John is straight. But it's still a love story.

As always, I'd love to hear what you think.

Wow! I admire your writing. This fic is fantastic. I am adding it to memories. <3

Thank you so much - this made me smile!

I got LiveJournal just so I could review this story (well, this and one other story). It's totally awesome!
Ted had the oddest look on his face. Slowly, he said, like one hesitant to repeat another's blasphemy in case the lightning strikes weren't fussy about who the real sinner was, "A waste of time?"
For that line, you win cookies in your preferred flavor!

I'm so pleased you liked that line - I remember being happy with it when I wrote it!

And aw, thanks for letting me know you got an lj to review this (and another story) - I remember the story that I got an lj for, and I still think it's one of the best things I've ever read.

You can never go wrong with chocolate for me. Thanks!

This is adorable. I giggled a lot; not least at "three of them are competent."

Thank you so much - I had so much fun writing this!

Here from crack_van.

Awww. I really enjoyed QEftSG when I was, ahem, much younger, and this is hilarious and adorable. John really is a natural client for the team, and I especially enjoyed Kyan and Carson's efforts to make him over.

It's shocking how long ago that first season of QEftSG was, isn't it? I'm so pleased you enjoyed this, thanks!

Two great tastes that taste great together! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the kind words!

This is absolutely absurd and wonderfully in character and I love it to bits.

This made me laugh out loud: "John," he said, tone so sombre that John rather expected him to announce that Lestrade was on his way over due to a triple murder in Lambeth, "tell me about your daily hair regime."

Regimen, John wanted to correct, but Kyan had either mastered the perfect deadpan, or, far more likely, he was simply utterly serious about grooming.
John mentally correcting Kyan is pitch perfect. He's so conciliatory with the interlopers, a perfect foil for Sherlock finding the men nearly beneath his notice until they try to "manage" their relationship or, God forbid, touch his skull.

Sherlock's delight in that meal has me grinning. John knows his Sherlock and loves and accepts him. Sex doesn't have to be part of every love affair and I think John's all right with that. I certainly am.

This was recced at lj user=crack_van> and I'm delighted to have read it.

Oh, this comment just delights me! I really like the way you characterized John and Sherlock as you found them here - thank you so much!

Also over here via the crack van. I loved the way you've included all the fun parts, but at the same time preserved the relationship between John and Sherlock. Best line is when Thom just states that Sherlock loves John and he doesn't disagree.

I'm here from Crack_Van too. Marvelous story! :D

That was just brilliant! I loved absolutely everything about it, from your perfectly put-upon John to your yes-I-love-him-no-I-don't-want-to-do-him Sherlock. Thank you so much for that. It really brightened my day. :D

This comment brightened my day, so thank you!

This reminded me how much fun it used to be watching QEFTSG—yes, the US version here in the UK. THey'd definitely have their work cut out for them with Sherlock. This is lovely, full of so many delightful moments.

Aw, adorable icon! And thank you for letting me know you watched the US QEftSG cast in the UK - now this story only feels terribly implausible instead of completely so!

A bunch of fic recs because I haven't the patience to do them all one by one.

Oh wow this was awesome. Just left me with a warm glowy feeling. Thank you! :D

Thank you so much! I'm pleased you enjoyed it!

Ah, that ending! So adorable! So perfect!

Awwww, I loved this! Just the right amount of fluff... :)

Awwwww, *smishes the boys to bits* This was brilliant.
