[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/661305/chapters/1206223 Baker School Blitz]] is a {{Series/Sherlock}} HighSchoolAU fanfiction written by Satine89 (aka Tropers/LargoQuagmire), where John Watson, an older teenager with Social Anxiety Disorder, is sent to London's only boarding school equipped to offer support and psychological services to mentally unstable teenagers, Baker Boarding House. And despite every effort to acclimate and create a normal life for himself, [[YouCantFightFate John ends up in the social circle of the blunt scientific genius Sherlock Holmes]]. And somehow ends up being recruited for the boarding school's acapella singing group, which is basically a dumping ground for the school's biggest problem students, as overseen by Mr. Lestrade. The fic is ongoing.

----
!! Baker School Blitz provides examples of:
* AdultsAreUseless: Played straight and subverted with Dr. Donovan, whose usefulness to John waxes and wanes with her attitude. Subverted entirely with Mr. Lestrade, who somehow manages to neutralize the toxic blend of personalities in his acapella singing group and handle [[spoiler: Jim's insane crush on him]] with grace.
* AllGaysArePromiscuous: Jim definitely plays the trope straight, though his case is {{Justified}} by virtue of his severe nymphomania. [[spoiler: The only other explicitly non-heterosexual character, Sebastian, has only slept with Jim, and is now dealing with the consequences of falling for Jim.]]
* AmbiguousDisorder: As in canon, Sherlock; Mycroft's condition hasn't been mentioned, either. [[BlatantLies Moran insists there's nothing wrong with him]], but John begins to doubt that the more he gets to know him.
* [[spoiler: AmbiguouslyBi: Sherlock, who slept with Jim as part an experiment. He could also be Ambiguously Asexual, though...]]
* AnythingThatMoves: Jim's slept with every member of the acapella club except for John.
* ArcWords:
--> '''Seb:''' ''He's my best friend.''
* AscendedMeme: Anderson's first name is Moira. John decides to just call him Anderson.
* BlackComedy: John's internal monologues veer into this occasionally.
--> ''...Jim, whoís too distracted with trying to flirt Mr. Lestrade to death to notice someone as wholly insignificant as his intended rape victim...''
* BrutalHonesty: Sherlock edges out Jim as the worst offender.
* ButtMonkey: Anderson.
* CargoShip: {{In-Universe}}, John thinks this about Mycroft and his umbrella. [[spoiler: And the NoodleIncident with Jim and the broom.]]
* CatchPhrase: Jim calling people, things, or situations "ordinary". John [[VerbalTic picks it up slightly.]]
* ComedicSociopathy: '''Jim.'''
* CompanionCube: Mycroft and his umbrella.
* DeadpanSnarker: Most of the characters, especially Sherlock, have mastered this art; John is catching up with them. The author's notes also tend to invoke this.
-->''Introducing the greatly insufferable mind of Sherlock Holmes, master of deducing life detail from Tesco coats.''
* DepravedHomosexual: Jim Moriarty. {{Justified}} in that he's a nymphomaniac and treats sex as a compulsion.
* DramaticIrony: Jim reading ''{{Literature/Lolita}}'', given his similarities to H.H. and [[spoiler: his Dolores-like fixation on a much older gentleman.]]
* [[EmotionlessGirl Emotionless Guy]]: Sherlock ''can'' express emotion, but doesn't seem to do so very often.
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
--> '''John:''' ''I also canít help but think that something is about to go horribly wrong in my life, but I always think that. Itís the nature of being socially inept.''
** [[spoiler: In chapter six, Jim attempts to sleep with/assault John. [[CaptainObvious Everything goes horribly wrong.]]]]
* [[spoiler: FromBadToWorse: Chapter Six, in its entirety.]]
* [[spoiler: HeroicBSOD: John literally blacks out after Jim's seduction attempt turns into a violent outburst. John notes that this has happened to him before he attended Baker House.]]
* HormoneAddledTeenager: Jim has shades of this.
* LiteralMinded: Sherlock generally answers John's hyperbolic questions in all seriousness.
* LoonyFriendsImproveYourPersonality: Subverted in one author's introduction.
-->''Loony friends aren't exactly a godsend, on most days.''
* {{Mondegreen}}: Becomes a recurring issue starting with Chapter Eleven. John only knows semi-coherent words for Music/EltonJohn's 'Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting', for starters; a large chunk of Chapter Twelve is the boys arguing over various Mondegreens in Music/FallOutBoy's 'Sugar We're Goin Down'.
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Anderson is the acapella group's Zoidberg in almost every situation.
* MythologyGag:
** In the first chapter, John's sister Harry thinks he might have PTSD, much like John's original therapist in {{Series/Sherlock}}'s first episode. Also in the first chapter, John's old school counselor that brings him to Baker House is Mr. Stamford, and he hails from the town of Northumberland.
** Sherlock lives on floor ''2'', pod ''21'', room ''B''... but with Anderson, not John.
** Moran plays first-person shooter video games, to tie into his canon portrayal as a sniper.
** Matching his description in Holmes canon, John notes that Jim moves like a feral lizard in his first appearance.
** Sherlock spends a great amount of time trying to reverse-engineer a solution that detects the smallest amounts of blood in any liquid, a reference to the original Holmes story ''A Study in Scarlet''.
** As in many iterations, Sherlock plays the violin.
** The Belgravian Women's Finishing School is a reference to {{Series/Sherlock}}'s ''A Scandal in Belgravia''.
* NotGoodWithPeople: Just about every teenager in the fic - John has Social Anxiety Disorder, Anderson is an asshole, Jim can't control his baser impulses, Sherlock specializes in brutal honesty, and Moran can barely stand being around the group half of the time. Henry also counts, as he literally believes people are being possessed by hounds.
* ObliviousToLove: [[spoiler: For all of Jim's romanticism, he has absolutely no idea that Moran is trying to fall out of love with him.]]
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: No one besides Dr. Donovan calls Anderson 'Moira'. Subverted with most of the other characters, who address each other with their own weird nicknames (Sebastian calls Sherlock 'Lock', for example) or by their given names.
* OnlySaneMan: John, despite having a disorder that makes general interactions stressful and anxiety-filled, often comes off better than all of his acquaintances in social situations.
* SherlockScan: The entirety of Chapter Two, where Sherlock introduces himself to John. Occurs infrequently afterwards.
* [[spoiler: ShipperOnDeck: {{In-Universe}}; Jim, [[ForTheEvulz for whatever reason]], tries to edge Sherlock and John together more than once.]]
* ShoutOut: There's a ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' poster in pod 21's common area, and Moran's been trying to read ''Literature/AClockworkOrange'' for weeks.
** Music/AmyWinehouse is playing during [[spoiler: Jim's seduction attempt on John;]] he's also reading ''{{Literature/Lolita}}'' at the time.
** The boys play John a whole bunch of bands/singers in Chapter Twelve, and [[DeadpanSnarker spend a great deal of time snarking about everyone's various tastes.]]
* TheSociopath / TheVamp: Jim is basically a walking time-bomb with those traits.
* [[spoiler: StalkerWithACrush: Mr. Lestrade's had to change his number a couple of times because of Jim.]]
* [[spoiler: TeacherStudentRomance: Jim wants this to happen with him and Mr. Lestrade, fueled by his erotomania. It's definitely one-sided.]]
* WhamLine:
-->[[spoiler: '''Jim:''' It's none of your ''goddamn'' '''business!''']]
