Friday Fics Fix - I Think You're My Best Friend

Do you feel like some Sherlock-y goodness? Of course you do!

And lucky for you, I just happen to have some. I know, convenient, huh?

I came across this awesome li'l fic - the first in a series in fact - about an aromantic Sherlock.

I've brought you asexual Sherlock fics before now, of course, but that doesn't mean I can't bring you more dammit! 

And, as I said last week, fanfiction can sometimes be a godsend when it comes to plugging the gaps in the diversity of your reading.

(And a lot of diversity seems to come from the Sherlock fandom - aka the Sherlockians - possibly because Sherlockians are a) awesome and b) completely uncontrollable. And I should know, because I totally am one. 😈)

A little note though - this fic mistakenly places Aromantic (Spectrum) Awareness Week in November (possibly because this was the date of the first AAW.)

For the last few years, this awareness event has actually taken place in February.

So this week's fic is:

National Aromantic Week (I'm Not A Machine) by shnuffeluv

Enjoy, be awesome, and come back next Friday for more attempts to use fanfiction to make the world a better place (Mwahahaha! 😉)

Like this post? Try these:


  1. Ooh this looks amazing! I've probably mentioned I don't read much fanfic but at the same time YOU'RE SO RIGHT how it does fill gaps and holes in media/books!! *scuttles off to check this out*

  2. I really need to watch Sherlock. It's on my to-do list! Going to demand my boyfriend watches it with me after we've finished Hannibal.

    1. I hope you enjoy it! (If you become a full-blown eccentric rabid Sherlockian, please don't blame me!)

  3. I think the one thing I love about fanfiction is the fact that it is the most diverse you can get! If I was really into it, I think I the spectrum that it goes to would really make me happy. If only regular books would be as inclusive!

    1. well hopefully all the fanfiction writers (the good ones anyway) will graduate to mainstream fiction, and bring diversity with them!
