Detour by DobbyRocksSocks reviews
It wasn't fixed, and it wouldn't be easy, but with Sherlock right there, face pressed against his neck, John thought that maybe they could fix this. Maybe they weren't completely lost… maybe they'd just taken a detour.

To See You Again by Arisprite reviews
When John wakes to a world where no one can see or hear him, it takes everything he has, including the upheaval of past mistakes to find out what happened in time to save his own life. No slash.

An Army Doctor by author's archive reviews
Everybody knew just knew that John was an army doctor that got shot and had a honorable discharged. But there are many things behind those woolen jumpers and kind face.

Waiting for Time by Supervillegirl reviews
After Sherlock's death in 2011, John decides he can't bear to live in Baker Street anymore, and he leaves a letter to the new tenant. It doesn't make it to the new tenant. It makes it to an old one: Sherlock Holmes. In 2009.

Returning to the Past (For You) by astronomyluvr reviews
Post Reichenbach. John leaves London after the fall, and joins up with a new team in Afghanistan for most of Sherlock's 3 year absence. In honor of series 3 but disregards TEH. Not brit-picked. Rated for brief moments of gore, fight scenes and possible swearing, to be safe.

Are You Watching Closely? by Supervillegirl reviews
I'm sure we've all wondered what would have happened if Sherlock had told John somehow that he wasn't actually dead.

A Chance to Practise by KathyG reviews
In this story, set in "The Great Game", it occurs to Sherlock that he could teach John to observe and deduce by assigning him the missile-defense case that Mycroft has given to him. One-shot.

A Common Mistake by scrub456 reviews
A ridiculous bit of adventure. For the residents of 221b, it doesn't always make sense to do things the easy way. (Characters and their actions may appear OOC, with intent.)

Turn Left - The Veteran's House by Soledad reviews
What if John never met Mike Stamford at the park? Would his ways and Sherlock's ever cross? AU, featuring a great deal of OCs.

A Peculiar Case of Mistaken Identity by beesandbrews reviews
John's lost wallet leads to a case of mistaken identity and the uncovering of a convoluted plot by Sherlock that has ramifications for Mycroft and the British government. Contains depictions of violence and medical drama.

Wrong by AutumnAtMidnite reviews
Wherein John Watson puts his foot down when it comes to a certain habit of his new flat mate, and in so doing, proves Sherlock Holmes to be very wrong. Rated for mentions of drug use & language.

Saving Grace by navigatio reviews
Mary is dead, drowned in the Cherwell, leaving behind a grieving John and baby daughter. And then there's Sherlock, who has no idea how to help. Contains character death, 1 big case and 2 small cases, pointless sentiment, and an epic friendship between two blokes who really don't know how to talk about their feelings. Chapter 24/24: Acceptance. Compleeeeete!

It takes John Watson to save your life by Ernil i Pheriannath reviews
A series of One shots where John saves Sherlock's life in so many ways. Will be updated sporadically as and when I get any time to write. As always I like my characters hurt, so plenty of angst, H/C, whump and bromance (no slash) will ensue. Please review if you can.

The Adventure of the Reigate Ritual by Vivat Musa reviews
221b ASAP. Dying. SH PS: Need milk. That was the text that sent me from Lyons, France to Baker Street, London in twenty-four hours. The punctuation and post-script should have been enough to warn me not to overreact, but I was focused more on the third word. Also, asking for milk while on his deathbed seemed like the dickish thing that Sherlock Bloody Holmes would do. ON HIATUS.

Reversal by scrub456 reviews
Sherlock is perched on the ledge. Lazarus is ready. Something goes horribly wrong. The wrong man ends up taking the fall. Nothing is as it seems. *A Reichenbach Conspiracy*

fantastically, wildly improbable by scrub456 reviews
John stops a suspect from escaping. Sherlock thinks he's an idiot. Everyone else thinks he's some sort of superhero. It's all in the perspective. (This is a rather over the top bit of case-fic adventure. Rated T because John gets sweary.)

Gun Safety by scrub456 reviews
Sherlock really has no clue when it comes to the proper handling of a firearm. Fortunately for him, John does, and he's determined to teach Sherlock everything he knows. Even if it kills them both.

John says Sherlock won't like him when he's truly angry. Sherlock sets out to test the theory. (Set very early in the friendship.)

Enemies and Different Sides by Hekate1308 reviews
I'd grown accustomed to the fact that Moriarty was Sherlock's polar opposite. I'd not been prepared to meet mine in Colonel Moran. John reflects after the capture of Sebastian Moran. Post-Reunion.
