    Summary

    To Sherlock’s dismay, John’s return to Baker Street with Rosie is only temporary. Sherlock’s daily visits to Regent Park with John and Rosie illuminate his lost childhood memories and missed opportunities. But with each trip to the park, Sherlock also feels a growing sense of hope. That is until the past horrors return unexpectedly in a cryptic note folded in the shape of a heart. To decipher the message, Sherlock must uncover the nature of the hearts around him, including his own.

    Post S4. First person Sherlock POV. Case fic.

    Written for Fandom Trumps Hate (which needs our support now more than ever before) and for the talented bluebellofbakerstreet, who requested some BAMF John busting in and saving the day along with fluff, because, um, BAMFs are softies at heart (and that's exactly what this story is about).

    Thank you so much to hotshoeagain for the incredible beta, advice and suggestions. You are a star.

    Summary

    Appalachian AU! In November 1973, Vietnam vet John Watson returns to his family's old home in Arthel County, West Virginia, deep in coal country. His low expectations include recuperation and boredom. Instead he finds a ruined landscape, a series of grisly murders, and one of the world's weirdest neighbors.

    Warnings/content: Some violence. Explicit sex. Tobacco-chewing. (Not all at the same time.)

    Huge thanks to beta reader bethbethbeth

     Best Original AU Winner of the 2014 Holmsies!

     The Bone Fiddle Fanmix! Music is the heart and the spine of this story, so here is over two hours of it. Traditional Appalachian music, period-appropriate rock, and atmospheric alt-country. All the murder ballads mentioned in the story are here.

    Beautiful cover art by songofthecuckoo.
