    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

    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

    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.

    Summary

    Sherlock had published an interesting thesis on the splintering of various woods on his website. As well as an equally fascinating treatise on different types of ropes and knots and the best techniques for securing someone. Obviously, his captors had followed those instructions to the letter; thereby disproving John’s theory nobody took notice of Sherlock’s website. A victory, perhaps, but one Sherlock felt he could have done without. Trust his readership to turn the tables on the author.

     

    Morons.

    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.)
