Sherlock is a werewolf who is captured by a facility which wants to experiment on him. When John is placed into his cage they expect Sherlock to attack him, but instead, he tries to mate with John.
I adore this fic. specifically the first chapter. Without being in any way a crossover or reference, it reads a little bit like Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein in the sense that it questions the meaning of being human by juxtaposing a human being and a ‘monster’ and having the monster be the better ‘human’. I don’t see fanfiction very often with large themes and questions such a the meaning of humanity, so that this author was able to do it an do it well absolutely blew my mind. Sherlock is fascinating in this and it’s brilliant the way he walks the line between man and beast. John, of course, is great as well, he’s intelligent, strong, and wonderfully sassy. This is the kind of story that reminds me why I love and respect this fandom. Mature readers for sexual content.
