Can you help me find a fic?

I thought it might be useful with a thread like this. If you have ever read a fic and want to find it again, see if someone else here on the forum can help you out.

I have such a problem right now. I read a fic about a year ago or so, and would love to read it again, but I can't remember it's title or author. It was Johnlock (of course) where Sherlock was held prisoner by some group or other (can't remember who), and Mycroft and John managed to get him out. He was found in an almost dungeon-like place, with no hair and thin as a skeleton. After he was released from hospital, Sherlock wasn't ready to move back to 221b, so he moved alone out to some cottage (Scotland, perhaps? Not sure). John visited him several times, and Johnlock grew from there.

Anyone remember reading this?

Great idea for a thread, Vhanja. 

And this rings a bell. I will have a look and keep thinking about it.

Re: Can you help me find a fic?

I remember coming across something that I didn't read, but I saw the synopsis in my search results. It was about Sherlock investigating a case of someone who shaved the heads of his victims. But I remember getting the impression that it was going to be more about the aftermath than the actual case (though I could be wrong). I can't remember if it was on AO3 or another site.

Clueing for looks.

No, the shaving wasn't particularly relevant for the story, it was just a detail I remembered. The main part of the story is the aftermath with Sherlock's mental recovery and him and John growing closer.

Sorry, I have not found it yet but I will keep thinking.

Re: Can you help me find a fic?

Vhanja, I asked a fanfic specialist on Tumblr and she thinks it might be this one:

I think I read it myself, Chryse is an amazing author. If this is not right, please tell me, then we will do further research.

Re: Can you help me find a fic?

Well, not me, this Tumblr fanfic enthusiast. They do regular recommendations so I thought they might know it.
