    Summary

    Sometimes you don't really find yourself until everything has ended.

    A fic about finding love, healing and purpose after everything has gone to hell.
     

    __________________

    Sherlock feels an almost forgotten twinge of excitement and mystery. Survival is so dull most the time, but here was an interesting puzzle. A doctor and a soldier; capable, moderately intelligent, with a twisted sense of humor and a not-unpleasant laugh. Can always kill or ditch him later.

    “Afghanistan or Iraq?” The sandy blonde head whips around and the soldier’s eyes widen as he takes in Sherlock.

    “Sorry?”

    “Were you stationed in Afghanistan or Iraq?”

    Summary

    "For John, it's not a bullet that throws his existence into disarray – it's a bite."

    In a world where twelve percent of the population are Mactiri - people with the ability to turn into wolves at will - John finds himself struggling with a new and horrifying existence. The victim of a shocking attack, he is discharged from the army and sent home, determined never to acknowledge what he can now become.

    However, when his health starts to fail, it is up to his enigmatic new flatmate to show him that perhaps his life is not the nightmare John believes it to be.

    Summary

    Rain in the desert is breathtaking, completely alien after a lifetime of British downpours.

    John remembers vividly the distinct crackle and rumble of the heavens before they open, before the Afghan sands are drenched in water untinged by the smog of a busy city. He remembers the way everything stops, the way every living thing from the tiniest, hardiest plants to the bloodthirstiest Taliban pause for the duration of the rainstorm to simply sit back and watch the miracle of nature. John remembers even the rushed, everlasting thrum of his field hospital slowing at the rarity.

    The photo is decent - John, sat in front of a field hospital window, gazing out at the torrential rain with a faintly wistful smile on his face.

    The video is different.

    You can hear it.

    ///

    John has a tin of memory sticks, all full of videos and photos and memoirs of his time in the army. The Fusiliers (and others) put it all together and gave it to him just before he was shipped out. It lives in his wardrobe now, to keep away from a prying Sherlock, but the hinges remain well-used, and the videos are watched often.

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes isn't anybody's fool. In fact, she's regularly six steps ahead of Mycroft. That is, until his meddling knocks her through a loop, and before she knows it, she's adding a wing to her Mind Palace to house a not-so-aged Army Doctor. John Watson doesn't know what to make of this mad genius with blue eyes, but he knows working for Mycroft Holmes is, within the span of 24 hours, the biggest mistake of his life.
