    Summary

    Who is Sherlock Holmes? How did he become the man we all meet in "A Study in Pink?" While we are taken though the amazing twists and turns of the detective's life in BBC's Sherlock, we meet the mysterious detective in his twenties, with little to go on until season 4 about anything that's happened in his past.

    It may be a bit unconventional, but I intend to create a backstory for Sherlock (specifically BBC's Sherlock), while trying to stick factually as close to canon as my memory allows. While still technically an au, I'm hoping to answer many of the questions I personally have about Sherlock Holmes in my own creative telling of the life of the world's most famous consulting detective.

    Summary

    A few years after Sherlock met John Watson, almost ten to be exact, things finally seem to settle into a normal routine. Sherlock still does consulting detective work, and John still dates girls and writes the blog, but one day, a text comes in from a long forgotten enemy; a text to turn the entirety of London on its head for the detective, his blogger and his godforsaken brother, Mycroft. Follow along as we delve into a relationship everyone assumed to be too damaged to repair, a family few were aware could ever exist, and an underground network of criminals destined to break even the strongest of wills.

    Summary

    Prequel to and concurrent with The Night Children, which tells the story of how a young Sherlock became homeless and collected a band of Irregulars on Baker Street, one of whom was John Watson. That story was told from John's POV.

    This is the story of what was happening to Mycroft during all those years, how he came to be separated from his brother and lost track of him, and how they were reunited many years later. Sherlock tells part of this story in The Night Children (part 1) and Boxing Day (part 2). This story is Mycroft's POV.

    It's summer, it's the 1980s. The young Holmeses spend a night out star-gazing, because young Sherlock loves the stars like he loves his brother Mycroft.


    From chapter 5:

    God, it was dark! Really dark! The rope scraped against Mycroft's forearm and thigh as he moved along it. The rough contact through the fabric of his jeans and jumper acted as an anchor in the pitch-black sea surrounding him, and he found his breathing quietening down a bit. A few feet across the roof, he heard a small voice behind him, “Mycroft...?”

    “I'm here, Sherlock. It's all fine. I shan't be long.”

    The night air carried a minute whiny noise that Sherlock would probably later vigorously deny to have made. Mycroft suppressed a sigh, turned and scrambled back to where his brother sat in the open window.

    “It's dark,” said Sherlock timidly. Being a tough pirate was really hard sometimes, it seemed.

    Summary

    Sherlock remembers flashes of time the way lightning strikes and thunder sounds during storms: suddenly and overwhelmingly. Some memories flood back like the opening of a dam, others yet like a broken tap, slow and steady and weak. And at the center of them all lies John Watson, the axis mundi of Sherlock Holmes' life. Time floats on with John, and Sherlock starts to realize he's dividing his life into two categories: Pre-John and With-John. As the axis turns harder and faster for Sherlock, he feels his life both coming together and unraveling at the same time. And soon, Sherlock finds himself in his greatest deduction yet, that of his mind and his heart, and finally sees how a self-professed 'high functioning sociopath' falls in love.

    Summary

    Watson had let his arm fall while I was deep in those thoughts, and now the hand not resting on my hip was mapping other parts of my body. He wrapped his hand around my forearm, over the discolored skin from an acid burn, a relic of my university experiments. Then with his forefinger he tapped the uglier needle-pricks along my wrist, the price of a 7% solution. Caressed the well-healed knife wound on my shoulder, acquired in Surrey when I had only Hopkins for company but stitched by my doctor's own hand.

    I’d told him the stories behind each of these marks and others in moments like these, willing ablutions for the mischief I’d gotten into when he wasn’t there to watch over me. But some tales remained untold, the scars a testimony to the confidences we have still to share. And my Watson, my Boswell, is of course the master when it comes to words and story-telling, but I do love bearing my past to him like this. So I was not so surprised when he grasped at my thigh, pulling my leg against my chest so he could better see the puckered skin some six inches beneath my knee.
