    Summary

    "Well. I'm flattered and insulted. Just another afternoon with Mycroft Holmes."

    "I do so like to be consistent."

    There were any number of reasons why this was a terrible idea—not the least of which was that Mycroft seemed to think that making Greg angry amounted to a sort of charm.

    (When reccing, tag as pre-mystrade.)
    I was a bit apprehensive about reading this, fearing that the characters would be shoehorned into roles that didn't fit them, but the role reversal was done brilliantly. I would happily read the whole series retold like this.

    Summary

    When John and Sherlock are attacked on a London street late at night by strangers wielding mysterious weapons, Sherlock hovers over John's fallen form and calls for help. He certainly doesn't expect a three-decker purple bus to appear and whisk them away to what can only be a secret experimental medical facility. Hallucination and reality butt heads as Sherlock grapples to understand a world he has deleted, and learns that John Watson is even more than he seems, but still all that he's wanted.

    I like the way/reason why Sherlock left the wizarding world, and the explanation for his "deletion" is great. Definitely left me wanting more.

    I like this for the female-dominated society perspective.
