Sherlock/John (non-explicit). First time. Partial AU. Action. Military. Humor.
John is the best retrieval expert the British Army has, and so naturally it’s him that’s sent in when some man with little sense of self-preservation keeps getting himself taken hostage - again, and again, and again.

Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. Partial AU. Alternative meeting (military). Action. Epic.
A novel-length, pornographic case-fiction set seven months before and three and a half thousand miles east of A Study in Pink. Captain John Watson of 40 Commando, the Royal Marines, is assigned to protect and assist Sherlock Holmes as he investigates what appears to be a simple war atrocity in Afghanistan. An intense attraction ignites between the two men as they uncover a conspiracy that threatens everything they’ve ever known, but Sherlock’s as much hunted as hunter, and everyone close to him is in deadly danger. Can he solve the case in time to save himself and John?
