    Summary

    “I love you.”

    Sherlock sees the words hit John with almost physical force. He reels back a little, jaw twitching and eyes filling.

    “I love you,” he repeats, a little softer, a little more gentle, as earnest as he possibly can. Because they’ve been teetering on the brink of this thing for years, and it had become painfully obvious over the last few months that they were at a tipping point. This had to happen. Now it has. Now they can see where they end up.

    The tears in John’s eyes spill over, and he wipes at them angrily. “Do you even know what that means?”

    Summary

    All these fics feature a John Watson who has a different backstory to the one that is generally accepted as the real one within the Sherlock fandom. In all of these John Watson has never been an "Army Doctor" (a descriptor he has never actually uttered himself, just one he's never disagreed with when used by other people).

    Instead these fics feature a John who has had two careers; the first as a medical student and then a GP for a few years; the second after he enlisted in the British Armed Forces, either as an officer in an Infantry Regiment of the Army or as an officer in the Royal Marine Commandos.

    I have linked them together under a series header because I wanted to quickly be able to find all the stories I've written that rely to some extent on John having been an infantry soldier, rather than in the RAMC.

    I also hope it will help those of you who like their BAMF!John with those credentials find them as well.
