    Summary

    Now that John has his magic back, how is this going to affect the Work with Sherlock? Not to mention the Wizarding world’s relationship with the Muggle British Government. And how much does Jim Moriarty know?

    Summary

    John sat back on his heels, rubbing his head absently as he stared at the picture in his hand.

    He didn’t look dazed because of the blow to his head, thought Sherlock. It was something else. “What is it?”

    “This photo,” John said. “It’s my mother.”

    Summary

    “What life? I’ve been away,” Sherlock said. Was this really the time to be playing games? “Just tell me where I can find him, Mycroft.”

    “He’ll be at a charity event tonight, one sponsored by the Earl of Undershaw.”

    Sherlock tried to ignore the amusement on Mycroft’s face as he told him. What could be so amusing? Charity events were always deadly dull. He was sure this would be no different.

    Summary

    Easiest case ever, John thought, if his cousin had brought a photo of him at 18. Case done. Person found. Sherlock would only need lift his head and look across the room to ask, “John? Is your surname Brandon, by any chance, rather than Watson?” John could just see it. He would nod in agreement and Sherlock would drop his head back on the couch and say, “I thought as much. Dull. Bored, John!”

    What's a man to do when his estranged family hires his own flatmate to find him?

    Summary

    Mycroft was just sitting back with a snifter of brandy, congratulating himself on a job well done. It wasn’t easy, bringing a man back from the dead, even in the most superficial sense, yet he liked to think his efforts were well-placed.

    Which, of course, was the moment his door came crashing open and Sherlock stood there, hair a mess and coat a charcoal smudge around him. “How could you, Mycroft? You said you would watch him.”

    Summary

    “Don’t you think you’ve gone too far, this time, Mycroft? No-one knows better than I that you can be petty and vindictive, but I thought you liked John?”

    Mycroft’s forehead had pre-emptively creased when Sherlock entered, but now the lines deepened. “I don’t know what you’re talking about, Sherlock.”

    Summary

    “So, why are we going to … Little Whinging? How is there even a town named Little Whinging? Is it next to Greater Whinging? Part of Blubbering County? Bisected by the Distraught River, perhaps? Ridiculous.”

    John just sighed. “We’re going because Lestrade asked us. He said this was right up your alley—a classic locked room mystery, clearly a murder, but with absolutely no clues or evidence left behind, not to mention an undetermined cause of death. Victim's name is Vernon Dursley."

    Summary

    “Ian?” Sherlock heard the break in John’s voice as he looked at the lanky teenager alone in the waiting room. The boy huddled in a corner, staring at nothing as he absently rubbed at the blood stains on his jeans. His blond head lifted when he heard his name, and for a moment he just looked through John as if he were yet another unknown hospital employee. Then the recognition broke through, and, tears welling up in his eyes, he said, “Dad.”

    Summary

    For more than three decades, John Watson and the written word had been the best and closest of friends. Even when he hadn’t been writing himself, he had immersed himself in works by other people—anyone from Marcus Aurelius, to Dickens, to Jasper Fforde.

    And then, he’d been shot.

    How a bullet through his shoulder had left him bereft of words, he didn’t know.

    Summary

    A one-shot look at what might have happened when, in Reichenbach, the Chief Superintendent shows up at 221B with Donovan only to meet, not plain, ordinary (ha!) John Watson, but rather Lord John Hamish Watson Brandon, Earl of Undershaw … who is NOT amused.

    Summary

    Sherlock looked at his friend, noting the white at the lips, the lines of strain in the forehead, as his fingers curled around the boy’s shoulder. Then, before he could help himself, he asked, “He’s not your nephew, is he?”

    Summary

    “We need you to help us slay a dragon, Dr Watson,” said Thorn. “Mr Gandalf assures us you are ideally suited for our purposes.”

    “A dragon?” John asked. “The ones I’ve seen in the zoo don’t seem particularly threatening.”

    Thorn gave him a wry smile. “A metaphorical dragon, doctor. One named Moriarty. Perhaps you’ve heard of him?”

    Summary

    Post-Reichenbach, all John really wants to do is clear his friend's name, but in the face of the press and all the skeptics, what can one, lone blogger do? Be Brave, of course.

    Inspired by Sarah Bareilles’ wonderful, catchy tune, “Brave.”

    Summary

    John looked up, face calm again but with wounded eyes. “It’s not the way I would have wanted you to meet, but … come in. Father, this is my flatmate and best friend, Sherlock Holmes, and my good friend Detective Inspector Greg Lestrade. Sherlock, Greg—this is my father, Jonathan Brandon.” He paused to swallow. “Earl of Undershaw.”

    Summary

    Sherlock was staring now. “Whatever is the matter with you, Mycroft? You haven’t insulted me once and you’re barely following the conversation.”

    John cleared his throat. “I think I can answer that question for you, Sherlock. Mycroft? What’s the date?”

    “10th January.”

    “And the year?

    “2006.”

    Summary

    “If I’d had a different kind of father, everything would have been different. I might have wished otherwise, but there’s not much about the last twenty years I’d change.”

    After the trip to Buckingham Palace, Sherlock finds out that maybe John's family background was different than he'd thought ... and this time, his father is not the problem.
