    Summary

    In a different world, when Mycroft kidnapped John for the very first time, after he met Sherlock, John forgot to mention it to Sherlock.

    In that different world, after Jeff Hope had been shot, Mycroft doesn’t greet them at the crime scene but there is still their late night meal of Chinese, in which then Sherlock and John both returned to Baker Street and tumble into bed together for a night filled with hot, sweaty sex (as it should have been all along).

    In that different world, the Holmes brothers belatedly realise that John Watson is not actually such an easily manipulated pushover and could in fact spell out a lot of agonising pain and trouble for them. And all because mothers love him.

    It must be the jumpers.

    Summary

    Mycroft has been trapped by his mother to introduce her to the “woman who has captured his heart” at a family dinner. What she doesn’t understand is the “woman” is not a woman so much as it’s Gregory Lestrade. But Mycroft has a plan. A plan that involves bribing his assistant with an expensive week long cruise in the Bahamas, enduring the smirks and pointed comments from his smug baby brother and the unexpected arrival of one very confused and then very amused boyfriend.

    Summary

    "You can't." A deep breath. "You can't keep leaving me Sherlock, I barely survived the first time you 'died', I was the bloody walking dead for almost two years. Ironically Mary helped me through that; put me back together like some broken statue. Bits were still missing, but I was at least recognisable as vaguely John Watson shaped. When you came back you had those missing bits with you and I was whole again." Here John looks up and unapologetically holds Sherlock's gaze, his eyes shining wet. "Then that... that bitch tried to take you away from me again! And she almost bloody succeeded! You flatlined on that table, Sherlock, you were dead. You left me, broken and scattered."

    Sherlock watches, amazed, as John allows a tear to trail down his face; his John strong enough to allow his emotions through.

    Summary

    Sherlock grabbed him and pulled him back up against his chest, whispering into his ear. “I will never let you go, Mycroft.” His hands moved gently up Mycroft’s torso, holding him tight, reveling in touching his brother’s skin. “Never ever, ever.”

    Summary

    EDIT: It was for the best. It was always for the best, wasn't it? All of the choices he made, all of the lies he's told, everything he ever did; he did it because he believed that it was for the best. He did his absolute best to protect them all from the truth, but it wasn't enough.
    Rudi knows that despite all the power Mycroft has, he could never talk back nor defend himself from his parents. That's why he was going to barge down that office and give them a piece of his mind, because a person could only handle so much before the ice begins to crack.

    Summary

    How could he let this happen? How could he have been such an idiot? He was supposed to be the smart one yet here he was.

    Some people made wrong orders of coffee for their boss, others forget to carry the one in the equation, why were his mistakes so grand?

    Or just a short insight on how Mycroft feels on certain parts of the series.

    Summary

    Everything was his fault. If only he was cleverer. If only he didn't ignore the signs. Mummy was right, he was very limited. So he would do everything to make sure that all the people he cares about are safe, even if he ends up being painted as a villain.

    My take on how Sherlock confronts Mycroft after TFP to make sure he's alright.

    Summary

    "In all his years as a copper, there was no one case that made him quite as sick as the one that found him sitting before a fire in a government official’s study. It was exactly the type of case Sherlock would jump to be on, he mused, although he supposed there wasn’t much more to be “solved” at this point, just the aftermath to deal with... Not that Sherlock could have solved his own murder, anyway."

    Greg and Mycroft deal with the aftermath of Mary's final move.

    Summary

    There were many things that Mycroft didn't like in this world. He didn't like brightly colored ties, or people singing in the bathtub or rubber ducks. But one of the things that he absolutely hated was chickens. Actually, he didn't mind chickens when they were cooked and covered in gravy. But other than that exception, he absolutely hated the bird. Or why Mycroft hates Chickens.
