    Summary

    John is the best retrieval expert the British Army has, and so naturally it's him that's sent in when some man with little sense of self-preservation keeps getting himself taken hostage - again, and again, and again.

    Summary

    At seventeen past eight Sherlock blows through the door with a dry leaf in his hair, stripping off his gloves, the scarf, the coat, John’s gun, soft sheddings and a thud. John, on the sofa, head full, just enough of a fever to make everything seem soft and strange and not entirely unpleasant, picks up a smile through the fog.

    John’s a bit haunted.
    It’s all right.

    Summary

    “You’ll let me see it, of course.”

    It takes John no time at all to realize what is being asked, to stiffen with indignation, but he asks, “See what?” nonetheless.

    The look those grey-green eyes level at him says please don’t actually be that stupid far more eloquently than should be possible. “You are loup garou, recently infected under traumatic circumstances and subsequently discharged from military service, most likely from a post in Afghanistan or Iraq. Your wounds would have healed with the passing of the initial fever, so whatever lingering effects you are suffering are likely psychosomatic – and severe enough to bar you from the one occupation where being a ruthless hunter is seen as a qualification rather than a detriment.” Those eyes flick back up from their cataloguing of John’s limbs and body to meet his eyes. “When I say you’ll let me see it, I am then, of course, referring to your wolf form.”

    “And why would I do that?”

    “Potential flatmates should know the worst about one another.”
