    Summary

    Mycroft reflects on his relationship with Sherlock. Set right after the events of “Unwritten.”
    *****
    And there he was again, showing up on Sherlock’s doorstep with a bunch of flowers, for God’s sake. The English bluebells whose scent permeated Mycroft’s memories of that day, the day he had, against his better judgment for once in his life, reached for and grasped and clung to a dream.

    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.

    Summary

    Vignettes of the Holmes brothers, pre-canon through s03e03.

    His first memory is of the sensation of being spun in a dizzying arc, held securely by the wrists as wet grass blurs underneath him. The heady scent of rain and overblown roses hangs heavy in the warm air, and the sounds ringing up to the cloudy sky are those of his own laughter mingled with his brother’s. He is much too young to be aware of the possibility of slipping, falling, danger. He knows only that his brother’s hands hold him firmly and that Mycroft is the center of the spinning world.

    Summary

    Vignettes of the Holmes brothers, pre-canon through s03e03.

    *****

    “If I can’t call you Mikey, what can I call you?” Sherlock is seven years old and looks faintly worried.

    “Mycroft, of course. That’s my name.” Mycroft is beginning to feel a little silly. “I didn’t mean you can’t—”

    “I want to call you something no one else calls you.” Sherlock’s eyes are as bright as a rain-muted summer sky.

    “Brother, then,” says Mycroft.

    Summary

    A conversation between brothers.
    *****

    They had never before spoken of it overtly. “He never will, will he?” asked Sherlock. It was an odd time for a sudden brotherly heart-to-heart—Say, brother dear, I’ve just killed a man. Indeed, brother mine, but enough of that; let’s talk about your love life—but then again, they were nothing if not odd. Sherlock let out a short snort of laughter which appeared to disturb his brother.

    Mycroft studied him for a long moment before replying. “I doubt it, Sherlock.”
