Warnings: PTSD, drug addiction issues. WIP.
Summary: It’s the fall of 2000, and to help him out after his military career has ended due to injury, John Watson’s sister Harriet gets him a job as US tour manager for rising star of the industrial scene and enfant terrible, Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock’s not long out of rehab and there are plenty of doubts as to whether he’s serious about recovery. Plus, the music industry is shaking in its boots over the Napster mess. All John has to do is keep the money coming in and make sure his star doesn’t screw things up. After the army, that should be easy, right?
Author's Note: There are a lot of people who've helped with this: thanks to my fantastic betas emmadelosnardos, greywash, ardatli, and miraculousspaceship who have set me straight more times than I can count, already. Any mistakes are mine and not theirs. Also thanks to my Britpicker nichellen, and abundantlyqueer for soooo much military information and patience with my multitude of questions. And thanks to my anonymous music insider, you know who you are.
