Since I've become unduly interested in this show, I'm giving the fandom its very own post. No housekeeper, though. :) EDIT: I did not like the direction this show went, so my recs are largely from season 1 and AUs only.

Authors:
~Works by
A.J. Hall; usually gen. Includes The Four Paw Problem (a talking cat gets John's protection), Breakfast at 221B (asexual Sherlock talks about Mycroft's sex life), and a crossover (Sherlock and John are after Torchwood).
~Works by
Flawedamythyst; usually some type of Sherlock/John. Includes It's All Fine (Sherlock comes out as asexual) Horse and Carriage (Asexual Sherlock wants to marry John), and Like Flawed Wallpaper (Sherlock and John both realize due to Harry's wedding that they want it to be Sherlock/John).
~Works by
Elapsedspiral, usually gen. I particularly like Baskerville (a retelling of that story) and Aptronyms, in which John and Sherlock are just two guys with the bad luck to be named after the ACD characters and who constantly run into mysterious coincidences.
~Works by
Etothepii; usually Sherlock/John. Includes It Feels Like Home When I'm With You (a ghost!John story), and a crossover with Pullman's His Dark Materials series (Sherlock is actually Mycroft's daemon; John's is a husky; setting is fusion but emphasis on BBC).

Crossovers:
  While I'm on the subject of crossovers with His Dark Materials, here's three more in addition to Etothepii's:
