    Summary

    This is a sort of odd pastiche, blending Sherlock with Mary Poppins. Yes, it's been done before, with similar motives I suspect. But I wanted to try this to see how it came off.

    The core version of Mary Poppins I am drawing from is P.L. Travers--a much more brisk, but also much more seriously, sternly magical version than Disney's version. That said, there are elements of Disney's version that are welcome in. Dick Van Dyke's cockney accent is atrocious, but his sweet, loyal, constant affection for his Mary is worth giving to Lestrade. And I can imagine Mycroft secretly loving the song about the Birdwoman on the steps of St. Paul's--he's a man who serves for a reason, and he seems to care about people, so long as they're kind enough to keep their distance and give him a bit of air and privacy.

    Anyway. See what you think. I had a good time, even if it doesn't work, but I hope it blends the two worlds gracefully...including a Sherlock who would much prefer to be Peter Pan than inherit the job of Mary Poppins/Mycroft, taking care of the world's immature brats.

    Summary

    In writing this story, I have tried to adhere to the canons of both the Harry Potter and Mary Poppins universes as closely as possible. In spite of rigorous research, the writing of this story still necessitated embellishment, guesswork, and the invention of characters. All characters/objects/events that I have invented within this story will be denoted with (*) at his/her first mention. Because dating pre-Tom Riddle is not as extensively detailed as the rest of Rowling's universe, I have pieced together inferred some dates and characters. I have also incorporated both the film and book canons for Harry Potter, but with greater emphasis on book canon. In this story I have utilized the book universe for Mary Poppins, as it takes place in the 1930s, and allowed for easier dating. Mary Poppin's characterization is based on both the book series by P.L. Travers and the 1964 Disney film starring Julie Andrews.
