* Comments: I just really love this clever twist on the plot of the first Holmes novel, ''A Study in Scarlet.'' It's set in an alternate universe Victorian London where Lovecraftian monsters rule the earth, and... well, you should probably just read it. Beautifully written, subtle, and creepy.

''AStudyInEmerald'' by NeilGaiman (AU, Crossover with CthulhuMythos. Available to read online [[http://www.neilgaiman.com/mediafiles/exclusive/shortstories/emerald.pdf here.]])
* Recommended by Count Choculitis, @/{{Ainyre}}
* Synopsis: The Great Detective and his new flatmate investigate the murder of a member of the royal family.
* Comments: I just really love this clever twist on the plot of the first Holmes novel, ''A Study in Scarlet.'' It's set in an alternate universe Victorian London where Lovecraftian monsters rule the earth, and... well, you should probably just read it. Beautifully written, subtle, and creepy.

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4821971/1/Edward_meets_Sherlock_Holmes Edward Meets Sherlock Holmes]]'' by Sherlock Carr
* Recommended by Novatel
* Synopsis:Why did Edward stop hunting criminals? During those brief ten years, he was just like a superhero...So why? Because he met someone. A man named Sherlock Holmes.
* Comments: Crossover with Twilight of all things, and still manages to be great. Sherlock Holmes uses his intelligence to fight Edward Cullen, a vampire.



''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6096601/1/ A Study in Rum]]'' by Nytd
* Recommended by Belphegor
* Synopsis: One wicked and clever pirate. One singular and brilliant detective. One hundred and fifty years apart. An impossible meeting? Perhaps just improbable... Crossover with Pirates of the Caribbean.
* Comments: Nytd is first and foremost a PiratesOfTheCaribbean fanfiction writer, but although this is a crossover, it remains a Holmes story throughout, with Doctor Watson as the narrator from beginning to end. It's fascinating, quite gripping and often funny, and the author has the 'voice' and feel of her characters down pat - no-one is forgotten. A definite must-read.

* Recommended by Shareth
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: Life in London can get plenty interesting when Sherlock Holmes is hot on the trail of the dastardly Moriarty. Things take a bizarre turn, however, when Holmes and Watson intervene in a most unusual assassination attempt on a strangely dressed young man.
* Comments: Gets the tone of the original Sherlock Holmes stories spot-on while effortlessly blending in pre-Movie Star Wars-verse elements. The best and truest-to-literary-canon Sherlock Holmes crossover this troper has read since 'A Study in Emerald'. Highly recommended.

* Recommended by Tropers/RubberLotus
* Crossover with: The Great Mouse Detective
* ''Synopsis'': Watson observing something before Holmes has? More likely than you think.
* ''Comments'': Absolutely marvelous, though sadly shorter than it ought to be. What the film itself only hinted at is fleshed out just a little bit more in this fic, as one particular human begins to take note of the world of talking mice.

[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9158342/1/From-the-Sidelines From the Sidelines]] by Riandra
* Recommended by Tropers/RubberLotus
* Crossover with: The Great Mouse Detective
* ''Synopsis'': One night, while on a food run, Dr. Dawson experiences a most heart-pounding adventure.
* ''Comments'': Much like the above - just a quick peek into those instances where the worlds of mice and men intersect, if ever so briefly.

* Synopsis: "For me, there still remains the cocaine-bottle. And he stretched his long white hand up to it." ''TheSignOfFour'' officially ended with these words, but Dr. John Watson's dilemma did not.
