In honor of Ladies' Week, here are my top five favorite femslash fics!
No Bangs Without Foreign Office Approval
Sherlock and Joan go through training together and go from friends to clandestine lovers lovers before separating to in France. There, they must pursue a British spy turned Nazi traitor, allying themselves with Resistance leaders, sticking to their cover and hiding from the Gestapo. And there *might* be an explosion or two along the way.
It’s 1942, and while London’s nights are no longer interrupted by air raid sirens, the war still rages and not all of it is fought openly. From its headquarters in Baker Street, the Special Operations Executive plans to set Europe ablaze with its networks of spies and saboteurs in Nazi-occupied territory. Joan Watson knows what it is to keep a secret, but she isn’t expecting to be recruited into the clandestine world of SOE. Nor is she prepared to meet Sherlock Holmes, a former private detective who has by her own admission ruined her own life at least three times over—and who has a murder to solve in Occupied France.
