alicambs: (Sherlock)
Northwest Passage by Kryptaria Seven years ago, Captain John Watson of the Canadian Forces Medical Service withdrew from society, seeking a simple, isolated life in the distant northern wilderness of Canada. Though he survives from one day to the next, he doesn't truly live until someone from his dark past calls in a favor and turns his world upside-down with the introduction of Sherlock Holmes. I went to recommend this elsewhere and discovered that I hadn't added to the rec list! It's an excellent read and a great character study of both men. In fact Alicat's review, quoted under the summary on A03, sums it up beautifully - "The essentials of their relationship distilled through solitude."

alicambs: (Sherlock)
Evidence of Human Life by thesardine Sherlock's sanity deteriorates while he and John are stranded on a deserted island. A fascinating description of Sherlock's mind being unable to cope with with the utter isolation and how John helps to keep him, just about, from going insane.
