    Summary

    Severus Snape has his emotions in check. He knows that he experiences anger and self-loathing and a bitter yearning, and that he rarely deviates from that spectrum… Until the first-year Luna Lovegood arrives to his class wearing a wreath of baby’s breath. Over the next six years, an odd friendship grows between the two, and Snape is not sure how he feels about any of it.

    Summary

    "And what about John Watson?" Sherlock had asked. He had expected a rather dull answer...after all, he had been away. He had not expected to hear that John had spent the past two years in prison. Series 3 AU. Not slash.

    I cried and then cried again. It took me two glorious days to read. It goes on my short list of essentials.

    Summary

    This series was inspired by my desire for a coherent explanation for Sherlock's many strange behaviours.

    Set starting immediately post HLV, it focuses on the hunt for Moran, Sherlocks relationships, especially with Mycroft and John. It eventually moves into the struggles to deal with the impact of Sherlock's backstory, which is not a happy one. There is eventual parentlock, but even that is not straightforward at all.

    Please heed the tags. However there is fluff, smut and humour too. Did I mention Mycroft is my hero? I have done so now....

    Extract from review of this series by the very kind and generous rosethorn37:
    "Ever wondered why Sherlock is the way he is?....Come tumbling down the rabbit hole in this beautifully written exploration into the childhood trauma of Sherlock Holmes, leading to a life of drugs, violence and sexual degeneracy...."

    All characters, apart from Wasim and some baddies, belong to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle though I doubt he would recognise them.....Events are original but springboard off the BBC TV series Sherlock, all credit and hail to the Mofftiss :-)

    Convincingly deals with season 3. No magic ending but a satisfying, real, happyish ending nonetheless.

    I laugh and cry when reading this. I always make time to immediately read each update.
