    Summary

    WARNING!
    WARNING!
    WARNING!

    This story has one detail--one hard, ugly detail--that may just set your skin crawling and your triggers flashing. It's very brief, it's very concise, but it's one observed reality that's just a punch in the gut. The cold light of reality on something far too often wrapped up and sanitized and veiled away from the public behind platitudes and pastel scrims. It is horrible, and ick.

    It's also less than a full sentence. It's one horrible detail and it's gone. But if you can't deal with crib deaths in the first place, or dead babies, it is...not nice. Nor intended to be. Some things are almost impossible to grasp if you don't actually look at them, and Mummy's inability to ever get completely over her losses makes less sense without it.

    That said, it's a warm section, and is ultimately as sweet as it is bitter, and as profoundly loving as it is sad. And there will be more happy-happy joy-joy tomorrow.

    Summary

    "I can't shake the feeling that I could be of more use, to more people, in a hospital, taking care of people, than organizing volunteers to pick apples and repave streets. There's a certain selflessness in dedicating your life to healing others, isn't there? And I could do that. I'm smart, I'm good at science. I have gifts. Is it self-serving of me to not want to waste them? Wouldn't wasting them be the selfish path?"

    Summary

    A scheming mother. A fumbling client. The ancient Celts. All of them, in one way or another, bore the blame for the accidental marriage of Sherlock Holmes and Molly Hooper. And the fact that Sherlock wasn't terribly upset by the nuptials? Well, that was entirely his bride's fault.

    Summary

    Well, I wanted to have more Mycroft/reader stories for my main man Mycroft.
    Warnings:
    You are not a genius (in this story, I'd never know you if you are in fact one in real life), an evil genius (*points to previous statement*), super powers, half animal, adopted, half-related, magical, supernatural, princess or political figure of any kind. You are legal, you are in college, and you are in for the ride of your life.
    This is a story of a normal (I use this term lightly, we're all mad here) and an abnormal man.

    Summary

    Mycroft and Mummy.

    They do better when they're working on something. I had been going to put them in the kitchen together, but Mycroft insisted on going out to the stables to take care of the horses, thus forcing all sorts of baby-in-the-manger vibes.

    It is love. It's just---complicated love.

    Summary

    Prompt: When Sherlock asks about Mycrof's diet he's not trying to snark or tease - he's genuinely worried. At one point in time Mycroft had an eating disorder which actually put him in the hospital - ever since Sherlock's been asking about his brother's diet and seeing if he's eating enough.
    Bonus points of Mycroft has a relapse of sorts (perhaps after he starts dating Lestrade/John?) and Sherlock helps him through it.

    Summary

    Plenty of people have their doubts that Santa Claus exists. Well, he does exist but since most people are quite capable of providing presents for their loved ones themselves, Santa only takes care of the wishes that are really difficult to fulfil. One of the most difficult wishes ever came from a Mrs. Holmes in London and even Santa had decided that her wish was a hard nut to crack. He postponed fulfilling it year after year, until finally he decided it was time to tackle the problem.

    Summary

    From the text: “I did the calculations,” Sherlock said, an incongruous statement in his piping child’s voice. “It doesn’t work. He’d have to visit a whole bunch of houses every single second. He’d have to travel faster than the speed of sound.”

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes is a prince, next in line for the human throne, in a world full of fairy tales and nightmares, where the land is divided up into kingdoms based on species. No one expects him to show a trait that has eluded his family for centuries, one that would get him knocked out of running for the throne of the Human Kingdom – the trait of magic. But with Sherlock being so close to either taking the throne or being sent away to the Magic Kingdom to become adept at what he's clearly not, they are starting to grasp at straws to keep their son with them. That was when they stumbled upon the least likely of people to ever step foot in the castle: John Watson, former knight and skinwalker.
    Now, with Sherlock's fate in John's hands, and a war brewing in the north, these two young men must put their trust, and maybe their hearts, in each other's hands.

     

    Updates quite infrequent.

    Summary

    This one is darker, unsettled, and...edgy. The world is too much with this one. The dream of Christmas always lies over an uneasy recognition of a broken heart lurking in every story, and only a hope for death to have no dominion and the gritty world to have no final word in the face of our hope.

    There will be happiness again--but this one is about searching for happiness in the face of unhappiness, loss, heartache, and ordinary human imperfection.

    Summary

    Kink meme fill: Any situation where Sherlock is injured and Mycroft ends up carrying him. Despite the fact Sherlock is, even though injured, still complaining that he can walk (even when he can't), but also holding on to Mycroft because he is actually in a lot of pain. Bonus for any reference to all the times Mycroft carried Sherlock when Sherlock was a kid (5 + 1 situation maybe?) Basically loads of brotherly love and fluff, even if they are bickering as they go.

    Summary

    Summary

    "There, among the honeycomb pallor of his skin, lay marking that hold their own kind of sunshine glow. V-shaped tattoos of sunflower gold map John's collarbone, leaving room for curling spinning designs that race along his abdomen and arms in intricate patterns that melt into his flesh - part of him in every way."

    ---

    Sherlock is sure that Mycroft has something sinister planned when he takes his younger brother to the country for Summer break; Mycroft never wants to leave London. However, change can't be so bad when there's a dark, abandoned house resting atop the hill just behind the Summer Estate, ready to be investigated.
    When Sherlock decides staying inside all Summer is a bit excessive, he decides to explore the old house; but when he meets a boy that doesn't like to obey the strict rules that Sherlock has come to learn about the world, will he accept what the boy claims to be true, or reject him?

    Summary

    And the evening continues. This is warmer, happier, and cozier than the last one, as Mummy and Mycroft find a point of peace and understanding to be getting on with.

    The dinner is very stodgy indeed, but is also wonderful, simple comfort food the kitchen could have made in advance and left simmering/warm while they continued to prep for the feast for Christmas day.

    Summary

    John Watson just wants to be seen. Desperately. It is really no great irony, he thinks, that Sherlock Holmes cannot see at all.
