    Summary

    Appalachian AU! In November 1973, Vietnam vet John Watson returns to his family's old home in Arthel County, West Virginia, deep in coal country. His low expectations include recuperation and boredom. Instead he finds a ruined landscape, a series of grisly murders, and one of the world's weirdest neighbors.

    Warnings/content: Some violence. Explicit sex. Tobacco-chewing. (Not all at the same time.)

    Huge thanks to beta reader bethbethbeth

     Best Original AU Winner of the 2014 Holmsies!

     The Bone Fiddle Fanmix! Music is the heart and the spine of this story, so here is over two hours of it. Traditional Appalachian music, period-appropriate rock, and atmospheric alt-country. All the murder ballads mentioned in the story are here.

    Beautiful cover art by songofthecuckoo.

    Phantom of the Opera and Johnlock, fused. Enough said.

    The period-drama Johnlock to end all period-drama Johnlocks! A genuine epic to boot. And such great smut! Two thumbs way up!

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Lovely, lovely fic. Bit of a slow-build at first, but extremely satisfying in the areas of angst, romance, and sexytimes. Plus the bonus of sweetcupncakes' gorgeous prose. Teenlock never looked so good.
