  1. Summary

    This series comprises stories that take place in the same universe as my Unforgivable Things series, but which don't take place during the timeline of those four stories.

    The stories in this series don't require knowledge of the main UT series, and will include pastfic, side branches of the storyline, and anything that comes to mind that takes place in that universe. Stories will be added on an ad hoc basis.

  3. Summary

    An occasional series set during the early years of Mycroft's career, based on the Moscow rules, mostly famously articulated in le Carre's Smiley novels:

    1. Assume nothing.
    2. Never go against your gut.
    3. Everyone is potentially under opposition control.
    4. Do not look back; you are never completely alone.
    5. Go with the flow, blend in.
    6. Vary your pattern and stay within your cover.
    7. Lull them into a sense of security.
    8. Do not harass the opposition.
    9. Pick the time and place for action.
    10. Keep your options open.

    Summary

    A not-so routine kidnapping provides the great Sherlock Holmes with a case unlike any he’s handled before: a race against a clock which obeys no set rule of Time; a world consisting of other people’s conflicting realities; and a search for a girl whom he’s only encountered between the pages of a storybook … [ACD Sherlock Holmes x Alice in Wonderland steampunk crossover, originally written for the Holmes Big Bang 2010 challenge.]

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The very concept of this made my head go splodey; the fic entirely lives up to the promise of the idea.

    My rec from 221b recs: "Mycroft is very much on my mind these days, so as my last rec this month I bring a tiny jewel of a Mycroft fic. A short, very funny view on the early days of Mycroft's career in the civil service, partly told from the point-of-view of the one person in the administration more devious than him. And any author who can cite the Thirty Year Rule is a writer after my own heart."
