Why This Must Be Read: The best thing about Elementary is the way it subtly subverts normative tropes and this fic is that in a nutshell. It's a casual conversation between Joan and Alfonso about their lives, about Sherlock and about his silent crush on Miss Hudson. It's a beautiful friendship story overtop of this amazing i-need-it-to-happen-now-and-need-to-read-more romance that you just know would WORK.

Read it, it's perfect.

"She wasn't going to patronise him: there were a lot of reasons why a black Latino ex-con from Brooklyn was unlikely to end up with a white trans woman from rural Nebraska. But improbable, as Sherlock would no doubt say while bouncing on the balls of his feet, was not a synonym for impossible."
