    Summary

    In 1938, John Watson was at the peak of his music career, performing original jazz tunes in the hottest clubs to adoring crowds. But now the year is 1945 and Captain John Watson has just returned home from the war. Attempting to cope with the horrors he saw in the Solomon Islands, he struggles to get even a weekday slot performing at the jazz clubs. When he hears a radio announcement for a song-writing competition, he knows this is the opportunity he has been waiting for. He only needs to put a band together that can help him win the grand prize.
    But first, he needs to face his survivor's guilt to honour his best friend's dying wish: he must find Victor Trevor's spouse- someone named Sherlock Holmes- and deliver a message.

    Summary

    Freshers’ Week: as much an idiotic-bordering-delusional social ritual as Mycroft had always informed him it would be. Joining in was irrefutably out of the question for Sherlock, who only wanted to get stuck into his degree work as soon as possible.

    Until, by a clumsy act of fate on the first night, he bumps into a certain John Watson who spikes his interest in a way he doesn't yet fully understand... Perhaps a bit of partying wouldn't be so bad after all. And if it just so happened to result in more time spent around John, well, Sherlock certainly wouldn't be complaining.

    Summary

    Sherlock is investigating a new case and needs an accomplice of a particular size. John Watson fits that bill perfectly. Persuaded against his better judgement to cooperate with Sherlock's crazy scheme, John Watson finds himself compromised, in more ways than one.

    Summary

    John’s breath shook the collar of Sherlock’s shirt, breath which was pleasantly warm and bathed the skin of Sherlock’s neck and collarbone in a tantalizing way that Sherlock wasn’t sure if he wished to analyze at the moment, yet was doing anyway, because how couldn’t he? It incited a slight tremble in his skin at first, the slightest pricking sensation as his breath shuddered to a stop in his throat at the sudden and unexpected intimacy of it. John’s breath, John’s, brushing against him and Sherlock letting it remain so close as if it belonged there, no more alien to his own body than the clothes he wore. Because it was John’s.

    Inspired by my love of Outlander, but not exactly an Outlander AU.

    Summary

    My name is John Watson, and I'm a victim of depression.

    Well, that's wrong. An over-exaggeration really, as I am a victim of nothing but my circumstances, of which depression may happen to be a side effect. As well as panic attacks, and another plethora of symptoms which all led back to my past.
    To be completely honest, I may not be a victim at all. Just a person, who was living their life, and then one day decided they wanted to end it. I hate the word victim. It's scrawled across psychologists' notebooks, every single one I've seen as if I'm some trauma patient. Shocker: I'm bloody not.

    -- John Watson and Sherlock Holmes meet in the most uncanny of places: Baker Psych Ward in St. Barts Hospital. With John's striking past and the uncertainty of the future, will they be able to not only survive the day to day at the hands of 'experts' but also to thrive when half the city wants them dead?

    Summary

    John Watson has been invalided home from Afghanistan and is struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD and insomnia, when an old friend from med school recommends something that might help: An ASMR YouTube Channel run by a friend.

    One session in and John is hooked, not only by the way the ASMR seems to calm him after nightmares, and help him sleep, but also by the mysterious man who runs it.

    Summary

    John Watson has survived bad parents, war, tragedy and Sherlock Holmes. He's damaged, and freely admits it--admits that, often, his coping mechanisms have been almost as bad as the things that made them necessary. Some of it is his own fault--but some of it isn't. And some of it makes John dangerous, to his friends and to himself.

    Summary

    John heaved a deep sigh as he started up the stairs to their flat. Sherlock had been in a royally foul mood all week. The Yard hadn’t had any particularly interesting cases and the last client they’d had had left in tears within the first five minutes of her being there.

    Sherlock, it seemed, had made it his personal mission to destroy every last bit of Christmas Spirit John had tried to bring into the flat, and John was done. If Sherlock was going to insist on being a Scrooge, then he could do it alone.

    Maybe a few visitors can help him change his ways

    Summary

    Most people don't know Mycroft Holmes is an Omega (and thats very critical to security) almost no no one knew Jim Moriarty was an Alpha (and that's a headache) so how can Mycroft trust James really means to court him, for himself? and what is going to happen when it eventually becomes public?
    NOTE: the primary relationship has political and trust issues, however the threats and Trigger Warnings are from a different direction.

    Follows directly after Syncopation (and will make more sense if you read that first although there is a slight recap)

    Summary

    This is based on a prompt found in the AO3 Facebook.

    Sherlock is an Omega whose Alpha and mate died or mysteriously disappeared, thus severing their bond, which almost killed him as well. Sherlock is devastated and very depressed. An Omega who lost their mate is worthless at the eyes of society. They are damaged goods, used. If they are young and fertile enough, they will be sent to breeding camps and spend the rest of their lives in slavery and misery. Which Mycroft would never let happen, or, there was the option of becoming the Second Mate of an Alpha who was already bonded. The Omega would be welcomed into the family, have the pups the Alpha wished and live comfortably and protected. There would be no love and the second's mate place was very low compared to the first, but it was better than the alternative.

    Still mourning his beloved Alpha, Sherlock refuses to be someone else's mate, of course. But time is running out and Mycroft will not let his brother go to the camps. So Sherlock is forced to marry John, a wealthy Alpha doctor, who is already married to Mary, an infertile Beta.

    Summary

    The flat at 221B was haunted, or so the landlady said. John Watson rented it anyway. After all, his own demons were far worse than anything the ghost of 221B Baker St could throw at him. Working on a slightly different narrative style so please R&R.
