->'''Sherlock:''' Are you the real John?
->'''[[spoiler: Desire]]:''' Yes, of course! Who else would I be?
->'''Sherlock:''' I've met two other men today who said they were you.

Franchise/SherlockHolmes is having a bad day. His flatmate has been kidnapped, he's stuck in the middle of nowhere, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick and he's fighting off hordes of monstrous beasts from his darkest nightmares.]]

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, he's in Silent Hill.

''Welcome to Silent Hill'' is a crossover between ''Franchise/SilentHill'' and ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'', AU for the latter series after ''The Great Game''. It's notable for being one of the few fics where [[InsufferableGenius Sherlock]], as opposed to [[TheLancer John]], is the one who's forced to fight through the monsters and insanity.

There are 37 chapters in all, plus two {{alternate ending}}s. The entire series can be found [[http://archiveofourown.org/series/19902 here]].

'''WARNING: This fic contains explicit violence, drug abuse, torture (both physical and psychological), brief sexual references, and swearing. Lots of swearing.'''
