He found himself with dysentery and lost in a sandstorm so he thought he was good as dead, but he was found by a merchant caravan. The women gave him their ancient medicines and mixtures that desert dwellers had used for hundreds of years.

He was so lost in his fever that he did not question the veracity of their claims. When he was well again after only a few days, an impressed Watson asked them to teach him about their medicines. He explained he was a medicine man and would gladly trade techniques while he searched for a British camp. They agreed, and Watson was happy to learn what he could to when supplies became scarce; an all too common occurrence in the middle of a war.

When he found a British camp to return to, Watson thanked his companions and saviors. They gave him some of their oils, along with the knowledge of how to find and make more. From then on, if Watson saw a plant he recognized, he took some, stored it, and labeled it. So it was that when the morphine ran out, he had dried plant leaves that helped with the pain.

He found that garlic functioned as an antibiotic and also helped to counteract the venom of scorpions slowing its ill effects. Watson used the powdered wormwood the medicine’s women had given him, for the worse cases of malaria. Patients with dysentery, Holarrhena’s oil, diarrhea and other stomach disorders could be eased with boiled rice water, which helped prevent dehydration.

Back in London, John Watson didn't expect these skills to be used after the war, but he never forgot them. When Sherlock was so ill he refused to eat or even sip at a cup of tea, Watson had a solution. He forced Sherlock to take boiled rice water and peppermint, the peppermint improved the flavour as well as helping the stomach. Sherlock labeled him a witch and primitive primate, but when he was eating soup a day later, Sherlock didn't dare to say a word against his methods ever again.

Characters: Sherlock/John
Warnings: None
Artist's Notes: Prompt of [ profile] watsons_woes Prompt #22:
The Bard: We can't have a challenge without a little Shakespeare. Use a quote, a reference, or the man himself - it's all up to you

I choose the sonnet 17 :

Who will believe my verse in time to come
If it were filled with your most high deserts?
Though yet heaven knows it is but as a tomb
Which hides your life, and shows not half your parts:
If I could write the beauty of your eyes,
And in fresh numbers number all your graces,
The age to come would say this poet lies,
Such heavenly touches ne'er touched earthly faces.

So should my papers (yellowed with their age)
Be scorned, like old men of less truth than tongue, And your true rights be termed a poet's rage,
And stretched metre of an antique song.
But were some child of yours alive that time, You should live twice in it, and in my rhyme.

Oh say can you see… the alliteration in this lyric? Use at least one alliterative sentence in today's entry - and the more alliterations, the better!
Beta: Thanks [ profile] trista_zevkia

Sherlock Holmes was stressed and mad because his dad, Siger, left him with a riddle and he was unable to find the needle in that impossible field.

“Three terrible trigger tigers touring together in the tainted lands,

Tumbled and twisted with fever, without a river on the sands,

Until one died, stabbed, and mourned for the older in Afghanistan,

Two of the trigger tigers came back to homeland feeling strangers,

One tired tiger tried to be caring and tender, treating the helpless,

The other trigger tiger turned treacherous; distasteful and mindless,

You need to find and bind with the tender and kill the treacherous danger.”

What Sherlock didn't know was he had one of the tigers at his side, and the other was waiting with his enemy for the moment to attack.

Watson was used to woes, with his mental, mad genius of friend, sharp-looking Sherlock. But being beaten up in a back alley, with a bleeding brain and a blinding pain in the plain posterior of the parietal part of his cranium was too much to bear.

With rage and revenge John started to shoot and shout to his friend, while the fiend who created the condemnatory concussion he crushed.
