5 Recs - Sherlock (BBC), Molly Hooper/Jim Moriarty

I pretty much adore Molly and ship her willy-nilly, but Molliarty is my first love. I've highlighted one excellent story and there are four others under the cut. Consider this a mini-manifesto of a sort. Enjoy!

Fandom Category: Sherlock (BBC)
Pairing: Molly Hooper/Jim Molliarty
FicTitle:Sweet Dreams
Author: special_schizo
Link: http://special-schizo.livejournal.com/15371.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 for language and general disturbingness, spoilers series 2x01
Genre: bit of angst, bit of dark
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Molly finding her inner strength (and inner darkness) is a common Molliarty theme. This story, set during Scandal in Belgravia, is an excellent example. It is unflinching in portraying Molly's weakness but brilliant in showing her tapping into that fierce core that Molly fans believe in. And it's dark and sexy in a very unexpected way.

Fic Title: Descent
Author: special_schizo

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 for themes, spoilers series 2x01
Genre: Character Study, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Molly changes from pawn to queen. A fascinating AU that starts with the idea of Molly becoming obsessed with Jim in early series 2 and spins an alternate path for her from there. Shows a type of relationship Molly rarely gets - respectful.

Fic Title: Secrets of Molly
Author: emmyangua
Link: http://emmyangua.livejournal.com/70351.html
Rating/Warning(s): light R for sexual situations, spoilers series 2x01
Genre: angst/dark, smidge of smut
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Molly growing a spine is always great to see, and this story takes a look at how Molly could be strong and a little twisted all on her own. Darkly fun and sexy.
Amusing side note: the actor who plays Molly read this fic and tweeted about it. Canon/Fanon collision!

Fandom Category: Sherlock (BBC)
Pairing: Molly Hooper/Jim Molliarty (implied)
Fic Title: The Anatomist
Author: rosa_acicularis
Link: http://rosa-acicularis.livejournal.com/30916.html
Rating/Warning(s): R (violence, possible incest), spoilers series 1
Genre: AU, dark
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because this is the craziest, most brilliant, creepiest Molly-centric AU out there. What if Molly and Jim were twins? Insane, incestuous (implied), murderous twins? What if it were ALL a great game, from the off? What if it was brilliantly written, with compelling characterization and smart, snappy plotting? It would be this fic.

Pairing: Molly Hooper/Jim Molliarty
Fic Title: Home is Where
Author: Mad Maudlin
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/127698
Rating/Warning(s): PGish, spoilers series 1
Genre: fluff (really!), AUish
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: There's not a lot of fluff for this pair, for obvious reasons. This story fills the gap by going AU - Jim stumbles to Molly after The Great Game but before the truth comes out and there's genuinely sweet moments.
