    Summary

    Sherlock, as it turns out, is quite correct--Mycroft Holmes isn't nearly as strong as he thinks he is. In the aftermath of that hideous day at Sherrinford, Mycroft's subconscious leads him to the one person it's safe to admit that to.

    Summary

    An official from the Home Office whom a young Mycroft Holmes would very much like to impress is judging a charity dog show event in Scarborough. In an effort to ingratiate himself with the man, Mycroft enters himself and his little brother's Irish Setter, Redbeard, in one of the show's junior handling classes. His parents, not knowing his true motives, are delighted that Mycroft is showing an interest in extracurricular activities at last. Seven-year old Sherlock most certainly is NOT delighted – at least, not when his brother's extracurricular activity involves HIS dog.

    But it's just one show...what could possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    Written Pre-Season 4 [completed and published before 1/1/17 and "canon compliant at the time of posting"] although the events take place Post-Season 4:

    John rescues a child from a car explosion and suffers physical and emotional consequences-vertigo, deafness, PTSD. With his family taken from him, only Sherlock is left to pick up the pieces. Will John let him? [As this was written before Season 4, it makes certain assumptions. If S4 follows canon trajectory, Mary and baby will die. This fic makes no predictions how. Warning: Casefic chapters 7-16, refer to crimes of pedophilia.)

    Summary

    His immune system is decimating his nervous system - a civil war raging inside of him. Is there a reaction he's supposed to be having to this news, now? Something normal: cry, scream, pound the wall? Shake his fist at the uncaring universe?

    John can't stop this. An uncomfortable bed at some hospital ward isn't going to stop this.

    They keep telling him that this will most likely pass, but no one is answering the most important question: how will he be able to endure the uncertainty and the long wait?

    Summary

    Sherlock is home, he and John are returning to cases, and all's right with the world--right? But a series of minor mishaps and injuries makes two things very clear to his friends and family: first, Sherlock's time away wasn't the grand adventure everyone has assumed it was; and second, that time has left Sherlock with a legacy that's bleeding into his life today. Sherlock is Not Okay, and it's not going away.

    EDIT: I have now made this part of a series, since I am going to be doing occasional one-offs in this same universe.

    WORKS INSPIRED BY THIS ONE: The lovely Aunt_Didi has begun a podfic of this work--it can be found on both of our dashboards.

    Summary

    It's Mycroft's 12th birthday. Mummy has promised him a spectacular present, and he can't wait. All he has to do is meet Sherlock and Sherlock's nanny and head home. But first, he has to deal with abandonment, a mugging, the Tube, and espionage.

    Before Mycroft was the British Government, but not before he was responsible for saving the day...

    NOTE: Now part of a series of Birthday Adventures, set across the boys' lives and occurring on the birthday of one or the other. They will not be in chronological order, but rather based on whichever plot bunny nibbles on my toes next.

    03/17--Edited to add reference to Eurus, though in an admittedly minimalist kind of way. Just as a reminder, I'm of the school that believes Eurus is the "middle child" John refers to, which makes Sherlock still The Baby.
