    Summary

    The Holmes family has always had their own way of keeping Sherlock under control. When John finds out that Mycroft has kept up the tradition, he puts a stop to it.

    But years of being told that he's not worthy of affection, only discipline through punishment, has broken Sherlock in ways that John can't imagine, and John has no idea if he can be enough to put Sherlock back together again.

    Fortunately Captain John Watson never steps down from a challenge.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "I don't care what you've seen, Sherlock. This is not - it's just - No." John scrubs his hands over his face, because like what is his life? "I'm not having sex with you as payment, Sherlock."

    "Oh. So you want something else, then." Sherlock looks briefly disappointed, but mostly intrigued.

    "No! I don't want anything. I - you're my best friend, and you were hurt, and what your brother did to you..." John knows he's babbling, knows he's doing a piss poor job of explaining because Sherlock does not look the slightest bit enlightened. Rather, he's doing that face that means he thinks John is the one being an idiot. He shuts his mouth and takes another deep breath before beginning again.

    "Sherlock, what Mycroft did to you was not right. I understand that some families favour corporal punishment, but this?" He points to Sherlock. "What Mycroft was doing? That crosses a line. It crosses so many lines in so many ways that I can't even begin to name them all without wanting to shoot your brother. No matter what you did, there's no reason for this. There never could be. And I'm your friend. When you're hurt, or sick, I want to take care of you."

    Summary

    He was the best. His deep baritone sounds lured every soul he wanted into the water. No one could resist him. Man, woman, child. They were doomed when he decided they were his. Doomed from the second he started his song.
