    Summary

    The idea of Sherlock and Eurus connecting over music, over anything, is terrifying. Mycroft has spent decades watching over Sherlock, talking about their fictional family dog and the myth of the east wind, trying to protect Sherlock from the things he doesn’t remember. He’s worried about Sherlock and stood guard over Eurus, and been worse than useless in the end. He was complicit. While he thought he was juggling both threats, maintaining enough control over the situation to keep everyone safe (mostly Sherlock, but the rest of the world as well), he had allowed the threat to escalate. 

    In which Mycroft is not an easy man to know and an even harder one to look after. Fortunately, Lestrade is diligent and determined, and knows how to pay attention to people. Where family comes with obligations, but it also cares, even when you don't want them around. Where life mostly goes as expected, but sometimes has unanticipated joys.

    Excellent extrapolation of Mycroft's psychological problems after Eurus, and how Lestrade helps him through. Chilling evocation of Mycroft's terror.

    fantastic sequel to Mice's previous J & W stories, enlivened by the preposterous predicaments and coincidences typical in canon. I totally lost it when Rugger Mkwan'hembo popped up.

    Summary

    When John and Sherlock are attacked on a London street late at night by strangers wielding mysterious weapons, Sherlock hovers over John's fallen form and calls for help. He certainly doesn't expect a three-decker purple bus to appear and whisk them away to what can only be a secret experimental medical facility. Hallucination and reality butt heads as Sherlock grapples to understand a world he has deleted, and learns that John Watson is even more than he seems, but still all that he's wanted.

    Summary

    After Sherlock’s suicide, John struggles to understand exactly what Sherlock was to him, and why he is mourning so deeply and wholly. He accepts help from an unwanted source, and in time is able to reconcile his feelings and move on to love again - just in time for Sherlock to reappear, awakening in John all the old feelings, but this time, the missing piece of the puzzle as well, the one he’d been unconsciously suppressing before the fall. To complicate matters, he’s got a relationship that’s actually working, a wedding to plan, a bright future ahead of him rather like the one he dreamed of before Afghanistan. Before Sherlock.

    John has learned a lot about love in the years Sherlock’s been gone. The question is - how much has Sherlock learned?
