Sherlock Holmes Fanfiction- Warm To Me (HolmWat)
Bill Nails
Title: Warm To Me


Rating: R (for sexytiems)

Summary: London is experiencing a heatwave; luckily for them, Holmes and Watson have each other for company.

I kind of started off with the intention of filling a prompt (London's experiencing a dreadful heatwave. Holmes and Watson are hot, literally. Make them hot for each other!) over at sherlockkink but probably brought little bits of a few other prompts into it too! It's the first time I've written in this style (it's sort of like a short series of drabbles I guess), but I'm quite happy with the way this turned out so I hope you enjoy it. It was quite nice to write about hot sunny weather since much as I love the snow I'm getting a bit sick of it now- roll on spring! :3


Warm To Me

At the first glimpse of spring, Holmes informs Watson that the forthcoming summer will be one of the warmest they have ever experienced. He is, of course, correct in his assumptions, and by the first Sunday in July the weather is no longer regarded as ‘gloriously sunny’, but instead ‘stiflingly hot’. The streets are surprisingly quiet, the people of London having for the most part locked themselves away in the hope that their houses should provide some much-needed shelter from the sun.

Holmes has taken to lounging around the house completely shirtless, but Watson has his suspicions that this has less to do with the heat and more to do with the fact that the man is an insufferably arrogant moron. He is of course entirely unimpressed with these displays; a true gentleman dresses with style and dignity no matter the occasion.

When Holmes appears shirt-free for the third day in a row, Watson decides that something really ought to be said on the matter; weather be damned, one simply does not walk around half-dressed. It is most unfortunate that whenever he opens his mouth to voice his opinion, his focus switches to the rich tan of Holmes’s summer-bronzed skin and the way the muscles of his back flex as he sweeps his bow back and forth over the strings of his violin.

Perhaps he shall tell him tomorrow. It is very hot today, after all.


By Wednesday, the temperature has risen so much that even Watson is struggling to keep himself looking well-dressed and dignified; his jacket lies forlorn and forgotten in a corner and his shirt sleeves are rolled up as far as they will go in an attempt to keep cool. He has taken to sprawling in an armchair and fanning himself with an old newspaper, trying to block out the screech of Holmes trying and failing to tune his violin.

When Watson sighs exasperatedly for the fifth time in two minutes, Holmes places the instrument in its case and strides over to him, crouching between his spread legs and looking him straight in they eye.

“Perhaps, my dear fellow, the reason you are so hot is due to the fact that you are wearing entirely too many clothes.”

Watson raises one eyebrow and regards him tiredly as though he really just cannot be bothered any more; he doesn’t argue as Holmes gently unfastens the top button of his shirt, working his way downwards. The last button popped, Holmes leans in close, and Watson’s breath catches in his throat as he realises that he is undoing the buttons of his trousers with his teeth. Holmes runs the tip of his index finger up the underside of Watson’s cock, breath warm against the head.

“I thought you might welcome a distraction from this irksome weather,” he states happily, taking him carefully into his mouth.

Quite, thinks Watson.


The next day, it is so hot and humid that they cannot be troubled to do anything at all; even talking seems like hard work, so they spend much of the day in irritable silence. Eventually the sticky heat is too much and they realise that the only way they can bear it any longer is by taking a cool, refreshing bath.

With the weather such as it is, it has not rained in over a week and to fill the bath twice would be wasteful, not to mention requiring a great deal of effort. The problem is, however, it doesn’t seem right that one person should be allowed to wash first, leaving the other with the dirty water. The only fair way to do this, they conclude, is to bathe at the same time.

The bath is fairly wide but also rather short; the only possible way they can both fit is if one man sits cross-legged whilst the other straddles his waist and sits in his lap. It’s not exactly the most spacious arrangement, but of course these desperate times call for desperate measures.

No one is exactly complaining.


By Saturday, the warmth has become a little more bearable; the streets of London are still unusually quiet in the sultry heat, and it is still too hot to consider doing any real work, but they are at least more comfortable than they have been in days.

They make love on the cool tiles by the empty fireplace until the sweat trickles over their skin in rivulets and drips from their glistening bodies, making them slide against one another in a way that isn’t entirely unpleasant.

Satiated and sleepy, Watson lays his cheek on Holmes’s sweat-slick chest and asks, “why must it be so relentlessly, inescapably hot?”.

“My dear Watson,” Holmes responds with a teasing smile, “you are relentlessly and inescapably charming, yet I don’t allow that to dampen my spirits.”

Watson laughs and turns his head in order to look at him properly. The floor is hard and unforgiving on their backs, and they are sticky and grimy with dust and perspiration, but Holmes is flushed and gorgeous and his eyes crease in the corners when he smiles and Watson thinks, there is nowhere I would rather be than here with you.


Comments are always joyfully received, and rewarded with sexual favours gratitude :D

Oh, this is both so hot and so sweet! The last section is just too adorable! ♥

Why thank you m'dear! Whenever I try to write hot sex nowadays it veers off into sappy adorableness. I DON'T KNOW WHY. :D

Oh, wow, melikes. :) Silly Watson, didn't he know everyone else is naked too behind their doors?

Also, that last part where they're on the floor, reminds me of when I was a kid trying to sink into the relatively cooler floorboards in a delusional attempt to escape the rising heat. Until this day, I prefer marble/tiled floors to hardwood ones. :P

No, Watson thinks that you are incorrect and that actually everyone is smartly dressed apart from Holmes. What if they have an unexpected visitor? WHAT THEN? The embarrassment he would face if his hat were crooked and his shoes un-shined! He would lose all respectability. Really, what a thing to suggest XD

That last section left me with a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. ♥

Hee, I'm glad x) Warm and fuzzy feelings FTW!

I say yes to heat induced loving XD!

Oh, this is so, so, so awesome. *applauds/flails* Fantastic stuff!


I'm very glad you liiked. I'm trying to picture someone both applauding and flailing at the same time and it's not really working haha XD

Quite, thinks Watson.

Ahahaha! This was lovely.

Thank you :3 Also, you just know that Watson's thoughts remain that of a polite English gentleman at all times. Or most of the time, anyway; I'm sure there comes to a point he can no longer maintain it XD

Unf. So hot, and lovely, and I adored the snark, both aloud and in Watson's head. Thanks for sharing this. >:D

Hee, you're welcome! ^-^ I'm glad you enjoyed ♥

The last button popped, Holmes leans in close, and Watson’s breath catches in his throat as he realises that he is undoing the buttons of his trousers with his teeth. Now that was an unexpected suprise!

I love it, especially the mental image of them both trying to squash into the bath :D

I think Watson was pleasantly surprised too x) And they HAVE to squash in the bath there are NO OTHER OPTIONS POSSIBLE OKAY. They don't want to or anything... XD

*thud* I absolutely adore this!!! Love the drabble-style. I can't even choose which one I like best! Brilliant job, thank you so much for sharing. Hope to read more from you! :D

Hope to read more from you! :D

Aw, thank you! I very much appreciate the compliment, I really do :3 ♥

Simply wonderful! It makes me long for summer, and being half-dressed, and I felt like I could really feel their sensations.

Haha yeah, it was nice while I was writing it to escape to a place of warmth and sun for a while x) Of course, when it gets to summer I'll complain it's too hot and I'm sick of putting sun cream on my pale skin etc etc because I'm annoying like that

It's not that I enjoy torturing our poor boys, but I can't help yearning for the heatwave to last just a little longer...

Of course! The longer it lasts, the more hot sweaty sex they have! XD

Thank you ^-^ I try to write them having hot sex and they just end up being adorable, it's totes their fault XD

I really loved that. And I especially loved how the bath scene is open to our imagination! :D

Haha yeah, I got the idea for it and was trying to decide who's on top and who's on the bottom, what they're doing and so on... then decided that actually I'd like to leave it for people to put their own preferences in XD

*Fans self* this was so adorably hot. Seriously. So good. Omgah ♥

I may have to take a cool bath myself, now~

Thank you! I'm very happy you liked it :D

awwww! This is so sweet and hot and lovely! Such a treat, since it is anything but hot where I live!

:3 It's anything but hot where I am too... except now the snow is melting so there's just mucky slush everywhere :'(

Very, very lovely! I've really enjoyed everything of yours I've read in this fandom :)

YOUR COMMENT MADE ME GIGGLE AND DO A LITTLE DANCE. XD Really, it is the highest praise that you like not just one but all of my Sherlock Holmes fanfiction x) Well, all three of 'em anyway XD

ahahah! that was wonderful--I love how practical and economical (w/ the bath water) they are at all times ;)

They HAVE to be practical and economical, and if that means they have to sit delightfully close to one another then that's just a hardship they'll have to bear XD THEY'RE ONLY DOING IT TO BE PRACTICAL AND ECONOMICAL, DO YOU HEAR

We're having a heatwave at the moment, and I'm thinking that this might be just the thing to break the monotony.

Gorgeous imagery, just beautiful.

Thank you very much x) Where I live there's half-melted dirty snow everywhere so it was nice to pretend for a while that nice weather's on its way!

Oooooh *u*

This is so sweet and hot just in the right amount.
Really good work!

Thanks! Glad you liked it ♥♥♥

Woo! Gotta love that summer heat! Plus Holmes shirtless = 8th wonder of the world.
The last section gave me a great many warm fuzzies with which to cuddle during this insufferably cold winter. Many thanks!!

Holmes being shirtless should actually be mandatory at all times. Though I do have a thing for the whole Victorian shirt + braces look so... I guess he's sexy pretty much all the time! ^-^
I was hoping to create enough warm fuzzies to heat my house since I'm using so much goddam electricity trying to keep warm; I should probably get to work writing some more soon XD

Oh! Heat!sex, bathtub!sex, rolling on the floor and getting dirty!sex. Niiiiiice. It's all good, my imagination filled in alllll the blanks. It actually made it a little more Victorian in my mind, what you didn't say.

Otherwise, I love how this was written. Lovely piece, thank you for sharing!

Thank you, I'm glad you liked it :3 And yes, I left a lot of it unsaid so people could use their filthy imaginations XD


wonderful!! :D my favorite part was probably Watson thinking he should tell Holmes to wear a shirt.. and then promptly forgetting to do so. hahah! It was a fun read, especially the ending! I'm a sap, I appreciate these things!! XD

No one else has yet come forward to claim their reward- take off your pants and let the sexytimes begin! 8D

He'll tell him to put on a shirt TOMORROW, okay, sheesh, he's a busy man! Sometimes these things slip his mind, he'll tell him one day or next week or something! XD

I'm glad you enjoyed reading it :3 ♥

This is an utter delight. I love the affection between them and all the delicious imagery (tub - mmmmmm) and I especially love the ending, which is pitch perfect. Very happy-making!

Hee, I'm glad you enjoyed it and think it's 'happy-making' x) Mmmmmmmm tub imagery mmmmmmmm 8D

I'm grinning now - I loved that!

This bit:

“I thought you might welcome a distraction from this irksome weather,” he states happily, taking him carefully into his mouth.

Quite, thinks Watson.

Watson's so proper all the time - it's great :D

I am most pleased that I have made you grin XD
Watson believes that blow jobs are no excuse for not being a respectable gentleman :D

*applauds enthusiastically* Huzzah!
Well done! I loved how a lot isn't said, in so many words, but implied. Fun and... pardon me please... very HOT!
*smacks self and send self to the punnery for smackins*

Hee, I'm ever so glad you liiiiked ♥
