This is what it is like reading fluffy Sherlock fanfic.

John comes into the flat, sees something Sherlock did, and gets angry or exasperated. 
Clever banter.
Some kind of truce.
Pleasant domestic scenes punctuated by an escalation of the initial problem.
Someone points out to John that his situation is SO GAY!
John agrees and confronts Sherlock.
MINDBOGGLING EXPLICIT SEX SCENE!

Now I'm not arguing, but there is a kind of disconnect to find something so soft and amusing that you can read it to your four year old as a bedtime story only to be shocked when the male parts come into play (usually very messily all over the thing that started the argument in the first case). And yet, I see this pattern again and again.

When I think of the difference between movie sex scenes and fan fiction, this difference stands out. The desire for sweet sex between people who've known each other a long time as opposed to hot sex between strangers.

I need to start cataloging the differences so that I can write a blog about it.
