Sherlock/John (explicit). First time. Canon. Torture. Hurt/comfort. TRF aftermath.
When Sherlock goes underground to track down the gunmen, he doesn’t do it alone. Unfortunately, Moriarty’s operatives aren’t exactly helpless, and when John ends up in the line of fire – again – the ensuing events turn Sherlock’s world inside out in ways he might not ever be able to come back from.

“What the hell are you doing in Norbury?”
Grimly, John realizes exactly what the hell he’s doing in Norbury as everything in his head finally slots into place. “That fucking wanker sent me here. The bloody prick did it to me again. He knew it was something to do with Mycroft and he sent me away to keep me safe. I’m going to find him and then kill him with my bare fucking hands.”

“I want to go home with you,” Easter said to Lestrade. “My family is mean and I’m afraid I’ll disappear.” She ran to Lestrade and threw her arms around his waist, sobbing. John wasn’t sure if it was real. Sherlock and Wollstonecraft could cry on cue, but Easter was only eight…
“She’s shamming,” Sherlock said. “She doesn’t actually believe a word of it.” Easter cried louder. Lestrade looked stricken.
was once a stranger by thisissirius [5K]
Sherlock + John. Pre-slash. Canon. Hurt/comfort. Kidnapping. Torture.
“The box was barely big enough to lie in,” John says, hands flat on the desk.
Across the table, Lestrade’s face is a cool mask but it’s not the same disconnect that he feels with Ella; Lestrade’s trying to be professional but he’s still John’s friend. “You tried to escape.”
John smiles, scratching idly at the wood and he thinks about doing it harder; thinks about blood under his fingernails and breaking them and the pain. “There’s only so much a guy can do against a wooden box.”

John is kidnapped, and a live video feed is sent to Sherlock. Every hour, he has to make a choice. What should we do to him next?
Infiltrate (tear down the walls and the gate) by ladyflowdi [73K]
Sherlock/John (explicit). Established. Canon. Casefic. Action. Torture. D/s (both ways). Hurt/comfort. TGG aftermath. Epic.
This is a moment Sherlock will look back to time and again as the future stalks forward; an instance he will use to justify his actions, the decisions he will make. He’d known Moriarty was working solely for his attention, even John had recognized as much during the first assault. But Sherlock has been a fool, a dangerous, incompetent fool, because this is so far beyond all that. It always has been.
