Within the Sherlock Holmes fiction-writing fandom there's quite a bit of imaginative speculation over how a John/Sherlock relationship might look if Sherlock were asexual and John were, well, anything from straight but prioritizing his friendship with Sherlock to bi to fluid to gay (rarely asexual himself). Today I'm bringing you one such imagining: a story in which Sherlock might be sexually uninterested in John, but sensually starving for his attention.
Title: Sensual AceWhether you find "asexy" Sherlock believable, or prefer to imagine that the physical contact in this story will eventually lead to more directly sexual things, I personally think this is a contribution to the body of fan-created literature that is one part heart-breaking, one part heart-warming, with a wee bit of humor thrown in for good measure.
