SNARRY SWAP: Gift for: vividzephyr, "Crime is of the Essence"
Title: Crime is of the Essence
Gift Recipient: vividzephyr
Other pairings/threesome: Past Sherlock/Harry, insinuated Sherlock/John
Word Count: Approx. 42,700
Warnings: (highlight for spoilers) *General man-sex between consensual partners. Mentions of drug use, violence, prostitution, thievery – but only by the bad guys and not described.*
Summary: When a man he hasn’t seen in almost ten years appears in his home with a man he thought was dead for twenty years, Harry Potter knew his evening had just gotten complicated.
Author’s Note: This is for vividzephyr whose artwork always inspires me! She asked for a Sherlock (BBC)/HP crossover. I know you wanted Harry to have a crush on Sherlock and Snape to be jealous but it didn’t quite work out exactly that way, although Snape does get jealous! I also threw in a portion of your other prompts to make up for the small twist in your request - hopefully you can spot them!
Thanks to my wonderfully patient sister for being my beta and plot advisor when I got stuck. Any remaining mistakes are my own.
Special thanks to NambaWann, lorystar7, carolinelamb and reichan3586 for their help on the German translation. If I messed it up, it’s completely my fault.
Story note: The year is 2018. It’s canon until the Epilogue. Harry never married. Ron and Hermione had Rose and Hugo earlier than indicated in the books so that they are older in this story. Rose was born in 2002 and Hugo in 2005. Other minor modifications made without notice probably!
