Fan Fiction rec.  

Have you ever read a fan fiction that makes you want to read it a thousand more times?  And it just does everything so perfectly that you want to die on the spot?  Yeah that's how I feel about this fan fiction.  How We Navigate.  Please go check it out.  It is amazing.  And if you like it, be sure to leave a comment, this is her first fic and I seriously want her to write more.  :)

summary:

John's on crutches and off the rugby team. When he saves friendless school freak Sherlock from being beaten up, it's the start of a long—and complicated—friendship. High school Johnlock. Drug use, fights, family issues, sexuality, rescue, comfort, etc.  rated: teen


my review:
This is an AU fic that takes place when John and Sherlock are teenagers.  I think the writer is American so it comes off as if they are in America but I'm not sure if that's intentional or not.  Other than that the rest of it is near perfection.  Seriously both John and Sherlock are spot on in character.  They are also perfectly canon.  It is beautiful how she writes their relationship.  A lot of fan fiction tends to get fluffy and goes into great detail about how the characters are feeling.  This fiction doesn't do that, it just shows you in such a beautiful way how the friendship grows from nothing.  There is also great character insight in here as well.  Mycroft is also perfectly written and a fantastic subtle addition to the story.  I just can't express enough without giving anything away how well this is done.  Just go and read it.  That is all. :)
