    Summary

    Greg Lestrade and John Watson met years before they saw each other again at Baker Street. There were obvious reasons why it didn't work out then, but perhaps that doesn't mean they cannot have another go at it.

    Summary

    In nature Aggressive Mimicry is the act of a predator resembling a safe species to appear harmless and unassuming.
    John Watson has always had to make himself look small and unassuming. Invisible. This habit was adopted as a result when he was expelled from his second school after getting into, and winning, a fight with the local bully who targeted him for being poor from a broken home with a lesbian sister and an alcoholic mother.
    He looks like a harmless little doctor. This leans for false assumptions that he is a harmless little doctor.

    It is a lie.

    When a harmless species resembles itself to look harmful to predators in the plant and animal kingdoms, it is called Batesian Mimicry.
    Sherlock looks sharp, cool, abrasive and acts as if he doesn’t care what others think. This was a persona formed in high school to distance himself and to stop others from hurting him for being different.
    He is happy to tell everyone that caring is not an advantage and that alone protects him. It fits with the claims that he is a high-functioning sociopath.

    That is a lie.

    This story is from the point of view of a man who made the mistake of thinking they were the truth.

    Summary

    Summary

    John finds his life to be boring and dull, sitting on the same train he always sat on, making his way home, the thought of his whisky bottle the only thing keeping him going.

    Warning: This is a bit dark, and relates slightly to recent events in Brussels. So be warned.

    Summary

    London is an empire on its own. Streets filled with different shades of amber lights, people with different layers of complexion and buildings standing with different tales. Sherlock Holmes knows every insignificant fragment of London. He’d even go so far to say it is his domain, his empire. But even those shadows cast by those amber lights can be misleading, and so can your own mind.

    Summary

    "We have what you might call... a difficult relationship." The long and winding road to Holmescest, and beyond. 

    Mycroft wanders on the edge of sleep, the pleasant twilight of the mind when all things seem possible. His room is still and calm; there’s only the low, steady tick of the clock and the occasional shift and snap from the banked fire in its grate. He lies on his left side, one hand under the pillow, the other lightly resting on the crotch of his pyjama bottoms. He thinks of school, his mind’s eye summoning up the invisible threads of friendship, competitiveness and hatred that join his fellow eighth-grade students and himself in a tangled web. A snip here, a twist there, and with a little time and encouragement he hopes he might yet shape the threads according to his will.

    Summary

    Third installment in the Love and Umbrellas series

    If you haven't read any of the oneshots I would recommend at least reading chapter 28 and 37. Not necessarily required to understand this story but might be helpful.

    Summary

    You’re fine.
     
    You work. You work. You work. You work.
     
    You bounce from crime scene to crime scene, no patience for the in-between timewasting of ordinary lives. You fill the days, the hours, the minutes and seconds and nanoseconds with case after case after case. You try to ignore the silent itch slithering in your veins, crawling beneath your skin, burning in the crook of your arm. You hold everyone at arm’s length, wrapping yourself in condescension, wearing it like a coat, the collar pulled up high to protect your own too-vulnerable neck.

    Summary

    It's John's birthday and Sherlock's been hiding after the latest experiment went horribly wrong. Sherlock decides to test the water by leaving a present at the flat.

    This is written off that OTP Tumblr prompt with the cake photo. You know the one. If you don't your innocent eyes are going to be violated if you click on the link or chapter two. The reason this is mature is because of the subject matter (read: joke). I could probably get away with T but...
