Essentially The Devil Incarnate by Jennistar1 reviews
After the wedding revelations, Sherlock takes the only sensible recourse…he breaks into his brother's house and eats all his ice cream. Mycroft is surprisingly helpful. (Spoilers for 3x02 – the Sign of Three.)

And A Doctor by StillWaters1 reviews
It was only when people actually saw John working as a physician that they began to understand: that it wasn't just about bullets and IEDs and trauma care under fire. That "doctor" actually covered a pretty wide field. And that John was bloody good at covering ground. 5 times Dr. Watson treated others and 1 time he treated himself.

Afghanistan Comes Home by hjohn302 reviews
"Based on John's posture and reaction to what he read in the newspaper, it must be related to his military service. Based on his response to the phone call, it was a Bit Not Good." John hadn't talked for nearly two days, hardly ate, hadn't slept well since he got the phone call, and had been avoiding Sherlock. He wasn't fine. COMPLETE. (In Between 'verse) Rated for some violence.

"In Address of Doctor John Hamish Watson, Field Surgeon, your military service is once again presently active. You are to report to the nearest drafting division and present yourself to duty immediately." In which John is drafted, Sherlock is selfish, and war isn't as simple as it sounds.

As a young girl, Beru Whitesun dreamed of leaving Tatooine, but events kept her there, protecting the next generation of Jedi. (I wrote and posted this Aunt Beru fic here ten years ago under another name when the Prequels finished out of sheer desperation for fully realized female characters in Star Wars.
