It's really not. It's just a Sherlock AU, that's all. For some reason the fact that it's a Sherlock AU in which John and Sherlock are actors seems to really be breaking people's brains. But that's truly all it is.

In fact, the author stated quite explicitly, back when the story was being posted, that it was not RPF. Also, there's this, which I'm quoting from her LJ page:

So you can imagine that more than one reader had a bit of a flashback when Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman were each other's dates to the Emmys. [...] I was, however, relieved to see people saying "Well, that isn't how I pictured it, because I imagined Sherlock and John, not these two." I'm glad to have that distinction preserved, because it was hard work keeping Performance firmly out of the RPF category. A lot of real actors make appearances in it (John is friends with Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connolly, Natalie Portman talks to them at a party, etc) but the two main characters are that...characters, and not meant to be skins over the actors who play them.

... yeah, it's still RPF, tho.

How so?

I have no idea how you are coming to this incorrect conclusion.
