Summary:First, he is shot in Afghanistan. Second, he wakes to a phone call in Chelmsford, Essex. Third is pain, fourth is normalcy, fifth is agony and sixth is confusion. By the eighth, he's lost track. (John-centric AU)

Review: If you are looking for a clever and in character fic that gives you an expanded world view on what is already an amazingly beautiful canon, this is the story for you. John is brave and handles his new reality so well in a situation that would have sent most people crazy.
After John’s accident his reality is split into four different universes. When he goes to sleep he wakes up in another and it’s a hard task keeping what’s happening in them straight when they’re so extremely different. But John is so talented he is useful wherever he resides.
Extra kudos for having John use the canon verse to keep an AU!Sherlock alive secretly and drive him up the wall trying to find who his mystery saviour is while John chills in a separate flat with no bulletholes or thumbs in the fridge.
There is no slash in the first story which can be read on its own.
