    Summary

    Ella Thompson’s photograph, on her website, depicts her smiling thoughtfully. Impossible to judge intelligence from a photo, but the text on the site contains only one typographical error and the prose is free of platitude or “affirmation.” She picks up on the third ring.

    Sherlock has some questions about memory, in the aftermath of TFP.

    Summary

    "When all else fails, there are two men sitting arguing in a scruffy flat like they've always been there and they always will." Such is the stuff of Legends. Except as a single parent, John Watson has to wonder if being the "last refuge for the desperate, the unloved, the persecuted" as Sherlock's partner will make his greatest challenge—raising a child—all the more daunting.

    Summary

    Say, is there Beauty yet to find
    And Certainty? and Quiet kind?
    Deep meadows yet, for to forget
    The lies, and truths, and pain? . . . oh! yet
    Stands the Church clock at ten to three?
    And is there honey still for tea?
    -The Old Vicarage, Grantchester by Rupert Brooke

    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

    A look backwards: About a year before TRF, Sherlock and John share an adventure to discover the connections between a ghost story and the case of eleven inebriated men. At the same time, the detective and the doctor discover significant connections between their working relationship and meaningful friendship. No fluff nor slash, but insights abound. As usual, all disclaimers apply.

    Summary

    Why would 13-year-old Mycroft have been entrusted with the truth about his sister when his parents were not?

    What would Mycroft have thought of John's new girlfriend, Mary?

    Was Mycroft telling the truth when he denied being "given to outbursts of brotherly compassion"?

    What was going through Sherlock's head as he pointed a gun at his brother?

    Four dialogues.

    Summary

    Sherlock made Mycroft promise to watch over John in his absence. Now Sherlock's minder needs a minder of his own. A diplomatic incident in the Ukraine reminds Mycroft he might have the perfect operative at his disposal.
    This was sparked by a scene in The Abominable Bride. It feels like the beginning of a longer work, but for the moment, it is complete.

    Summary

    If the British Government won't do anything, Mrs. Hudson will take matters into her own hands. After all, why did he give her his private number if not for situations like this?

    Sort of a missing scene (a conversation we weren't privy to, anyway) during the car chase in The Lying Detective.

    Summary

    She doesn't understand. She can see ways the world fits together in minute detail, memorize books just by glancing at them, but she can't explain something so simple as happiness or pain. Sherlock may be slow, but he understands this, at least a bit.

    Because there's a difference between knowing facts and being able to process concepts like death or love, and in the end Eurus was still a child and she didn't understand.
