    This is a pair of stories about the relationship between the Holmes brothers, told in a series of vignettes from their pre-canon childhood through the end of season/series 3. They can be read independently, in any order. "Telling" is written from Mycroft's POV, "Without Remorse" from Sherlock's.

    Summary

    John and Sherlock are just passing the time. It may or may not be a game.
    *****
    “I mean, it’s not like Mycroft sends you flowers.”

    Sherlock snorts. “If he did, I guarantee that they would be fraught with meaning.”

    “What, in the ‘language of flowers’ like a Victorian suitor?” John laughs at the absurdity of the idea. “Okay, so what flower represents ‘I worry about you constantly’?”
    “ ‘Eat more green vegetables.’ ” They start snickering.
    “ ‘I’ve been monitoring you by CCTV.’ ”
    “ ‘Give me back my purloined ID cards.’ ” At this point they succumb to a hearty fit of giggling.

    When Mycroft brings flowers the next morning, it is no exaggeration to say that they are both rendered speechless.

    “So,” Sherlock holds the case out at arm’s length, admiring the skull. “One of those proper relationship things, with an ‘aggressively monogamous’ partner. Think you’re up for it?”

    Summary

    “You’ll let me see it, of course.”

    It takes John no time at all to realize what is being asked, to stiffen with indignation, but he asks, “See what?” nonetheless.

    The look those grey-green eyes level at him says please don’t actually be that stupid far more eloquently than should be possible. “You are loup garou, recently infected under traumatic circumstances and subsequently discharged from military service, most likely from a post in Afghanistan or Iraq. Your wounds would have healed with the passing of the initial fever, so whatever lingering effects you are suffering are likely psychosomatic – and severe enough to bar you from the one occupation where being a ruthless hunter is seen as a qualification rather than a detriment.” Those eyes flick back up from their cataloguing of John’s limbs and body to meet his eyes. “When I say you’ll let me see it, I am then, of course, referring to your wolf form.”

    “And why would I do that?”

    “Potential flatmates should know the worst about one another.”

    Summary

    Harry and Niall have a thing. They're sleeping together and it's fun and easy and wonderful. Then everything changes because of one word and they have to figure it out together.

    "Look at me," Harry begs softly. "Come on, it doesn't have to be a thing. We can just talk about it."

    "I don't want it to be a thing," Niall agrees suddenly, like he's figured something out. "I don't want it to be a thing, I don't want to play pretend. I just want you to take care of me. It's not about props and stuff. I just want it to be natural. Like what we do, but more."

    “Do you ever wonder if there’s something wrong with us?”

    “We’re gods created by an age that had no use for them. I would be surprised if something weren’t. We were never welcomed by the others, nor adored by humanity. We should have withered long ago.”

    Summary

    “I have long since established that I am not where I once was. So would you be so kind as to enlighten me?”
    “What do you mean?”
    “This is still London, of course. It isn't the where I'm having a problem with, it's the when. What year is it?”
    “It's 2014.”
    The man whirled around and looked at John with a manic glint in his eye. “Say that again.”
    “2014?”
    The man's smile widened. “Oh, and here I was worried that it would be a dull evening.”
