"Stop it, John. You’re distracting me."
I got a request for Merlock, and I got carried away. Octojohn’s in there too because we all love him.
I’m thinking of some au where merfolk and cecaelia don’t get along because merfolk think that cecaelia are vulgar and weird looking, while the cecaelia think that merfolk are a bunch of stuck-up assholes. (Which they kind of are.) Except Sherlock and John have been buddies since they were little shits, and they get along super well. Not to mention how Sherlock finds John’s anatomy fascinating, (skin has pigmentation and texture of an octopus so can camouflage with his surroundings) and John finds Sherlock really elegant and beautiful
And Sherlock stole a case file while the police were by the beach for some murder or something.
