    Summary

    “I’m sorry, Sherlock, but I think what you just said is that you’ve been catfishing a murderer online, pretending to be a couple, your brother and I, and now you want us to meet him? A murderer? As a couple!” The last few words are really quite loud, and Rosie makes a startled squeak in the kitchen.

    Sherlock glares at him.

    Greg takes a deep breath. “Sorry,” he says, automatically, then – “No – no! Not – not sorry, because – of all the things, Sherlock, that you have ever done, this is undeniably the most – the most utterly – I –”

    He closes his eyes, fists clenched, and takes several deep breaths.

    “Overlooking many, many other problems with this entire scenario –” he pauses and takes another breath, “– what on Earth makes you think that, as a couple, a detective and a – a – whatever he is –” he gestures wildly at Mycroft – “would put themselves online on a dating site?”

    Summary

    Death comes to us all, even The British Government. Sometimes it comes with a gunshot; sometimes in a cup of tea. How a man faces death, and what comes after, says a great deal about him and about his life.

    This is potentially a bit angsty, but no more angsty than Mycroft himself would allow--and possibly a bit more sappy than he'd appreciate. You'll have to tell me if you think the ending is happy or not.

    Summary

    This one is an attempt to blend my usual talking heads with a bit of an adventure, and a "we've known each other forever, but this is when we become friends" story for Lestrade and Mycroft. It could be pre-slash. It could be pre-BFF. Whatever, it's about why we decide to stand for people, and how we stand for them, and how we become a team, and how it can matter without anyone ever quite saying so. Because so often the most important things are largely unsaid, without being unrecognized.

    If you get the whim-whams thinking about being trapped in a fire? Yeah. Um...not the story for you. Right? Right. And insofar as i know, only madmen and madwomen like Sherlock and Anthea think the way to install extra access into a house on fire is to, well... No. I won't give it away. But their approach is not, so far as I know, recommended. By anyone. Anywhere. Just in case you wondered.

    Summary

    I locked all four boys in a house with no power to make them do this. So that now you may see a glimpse of a happier moment in the childhoods of Sherlock and Mycroft, or what the rest of the world might recognize as "terror," as it involves those two and a deck of cards. How do you handicap Mycroft?

    Summary

    Set during the hiatus. Reeling in the aftermath of another near miss with Sherlock, Mycroft seeks comfort in Lestrade’s company. This is becoming a bit of a habit. More so than even Lestrade understands.
