4 The Buddy System Character piece. Mycroft and Greg, pre-friendship. Set post "Vows." Non-slash. Can be pre-Mystrade if you're long-sighted and squinting hard.

6 Lestrade Exerts His Pull This is fluffy, and it's mild, clean, flirty Mystrade. It's also non-erotica: courtship, no more. I'm rating it T kind of out of pessimism, more than out of anything much happening that is likely to scare the horses...unless you've got fairly tetchy horses. So. Greg. Mycroft. Flirting occurs. Greg's having a terribly good time quite intentionally fishing for Mycroft.

7 Remembrance Sunday John and Major Sholto attend Remembrance Sunday at the Cenotaph in London. A lot of character study, a bit of adventure. John, Mary, Mycroft, Sherlock, Major Sholto. Not slash. Pro-Mary. Rated T mainly because the content is just not light. But it's not sexy, violent, or graphic. Just kind of grownup mature.

1 Hand Studies Those of us who do any form of life drawing, do hand studies. And hand studies. And more hand studies. This is an experiment in written hand studies. I spent a surprising lot of time looking at the actor's hands, trying to see them through Mycroft's eyes. Considre it somewhere between a writing exercise and a character study.

2 Look, Look Well, Oh, Wolves This is a follow-on to "Twisting in the Wind," sort of. It's more a character study/introspective on Sherlock and women, and on Sherlock and Mycroft. Yes, that does make sense. It's also what pushes it to a slightly wary T, mainly for mild and gentle consideration of subject material that some people find taboo.

5 Madrigal For Two Voices This is an experiment in wrapping two separate dramatic elements around each other. There's a case Lestrade and Sherlock are working, and there's an ongoing dicussion about Lestrade, Mycroft, and to some degree about Sherlock's past and past relationships. It can be seen as pre-Mystrade or Mystrade with the right glasses, but can also be seen very much as early friendship.

5 Twisting in the Wind Speculative backstory for Mycroft, Sherlock, and their family. Redbeard. Mummy is clever; Father is wise. Dysfunctional families, loving families, brothers.

123The Lion and the Mouse: Texting Subtext » Sherlock has returned after Riechenbach Fall, and it's time to renew old connections, in his own technophilic way, including one connection with someone who knew he was alive. This is mild Sherlolly, in the nice, wobbly area between friendship and romance. Sherlock, Molly, and Company. Content is mild. Irene Adler is a secondary player, but present.

15There's a Light Mycroft finds himself on the run in London, avoiding assassins and fighting for his life, and that of John and Mary's six-month-old daughter. This was written in response to a reader request for my Mycroft X Baby. It's adventure, but it's also mushy. Consider yourselves warned.

6The Best Man Mystery Sherlock meditates on John's choice of him as best man. It is a puzzlement. Fluff in the key of Silly-Sherlock.

1 CAM Another attempt to catch the upcoming Charles Augustus Magnussen episode ahead of the arc. Once again, I was jossed, but I think I caught some mood and elements that carry well, and I like the piece. Mycroft and Sherlock, after "The Sign of Three."

6In Memory Yet Green This is a response story to "The Sign of Three." If you've not yet seen it you may want to skip, as it's mildly spoilery. Mycroft and Sherlock, upon an event foretold in the episode that may or may not come to pass. Just for the sake of this one little possible echange, I can't help but hope it does.

The Rook-Delighting Heaven This was a fun shot at predicting what Charles Augustus Magnussen's episode might be like. It's completely jossed, but I still really like it. So, Mycroft and a Charles Augustus Magnussen that never was.

4 Blue Notes on White Nights Very low-key friendship with a dash of lightweight hurt/comfort. Quiet, moody. You can see it as Sherstrade if you squint right. Lestrade's having a bad night. So's Sherlock. Depression stinks.

3 The Shadowed Precinct This is pure self-indugent fluff. Working on the premise that Lestrade, at this point, pretty much has to be doing undercover for MI5/6 to be doing what he's shown doing by the end of season 3. (No, no spoilers in this-just maintaining the assumptions set up in "Hounds of Baskerville). I am in love with Mycroft's office and with light Mystrade. Very light. First posted on AO3.

4 A Brother's Gift Mycroft goes to Serbia to rescue Sherlock. Canon compliant with Season Three. Posted previously on AO3. Mycroft doesn't like doing field work. The noise. The people... and he never mentioned the rats...

2 Nor Cease from Mental Fight: Grooming Mycroft This is really a continuation of "Midyear Assessment." Once I'd postulated Mycroft having mentors in MI6, I found I needed them to have their own version of a midyear assessment of their young protege. And once I had to have that, well, the rest fell into place. Takes place in a universe where "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" blends seamlessly into "Sherlock."

3 Goldfish More of me noodling around playing with ideas and snatches I've managed to watch from the new episode: I'm still limited to spoiler reviews and YouTube clips, so my overactive imagination does all sorts of wild things with the fragments. Mycroft and Sherlock discuss goldfish. Romance implied...

7 Midyear Assessment This is backstory/character development speculation regarding comments made by Sherlock and Mycroft during the recent episode, "The Empty Hearse." Spoilery if you haven't seen it. Sherlock and Mycroft have started school and are dealing with other children for the first time. Their headmistress and teachers try to evaluate how they're doing after their first half-year.
