rabidsamfan: samwise gamgee, I must see it through (quest)
Once he had accepted shelter as a given, watching the world from the safe harbor of his brother’s shadow. But he had been very small then, and the world had been full of sunlight. No sooner had he looked beyond the gentle shade to the bright green world than he had known he must venture forth, leaving umbra for penumbra, and further yet again. And when he stood in the antumbra he turned to see the light that had been hidden from him and saw only Mycroft’s silhouette, standing guard, a blotch between him and the glories of the sun.

When he found himself thinking that even the sky was mourning, he knew that exhaustion was catching up with him at last. A week since the murder, scant hours since he’d solved the crime, using every resource, calling in every favor, forever since he’d paused to dream. He wanted nothing more than sleep, but this was a funeral he could not miss. Not with John bending down to Harry’s grave, tossing a handful of mud onto the coffin. Mycroft’s umbrella was unfurled above him, fragile silk and steel against the elements, and Sherlock stood beneath that shelter and was glad.

I managed to get some words out, over here: http://archiveofourown.org/works/443526

The story is AU Sherlock, based on the Nanny John universe started by [livejournal.com profile] emungere in a story called "Ain't Seen the Sunshine" where John and Lestrade are the ages we know them at, but Sherlock and Mycroft are 5 and 12 respectively and John gets hired originally as the Nanny. The story led to blogs and the blogs are good reading and well...

(Yes, I do sometimes forget that I'm trying to amuse a fictional six year old.)

Yay!

I've been ridiculously busy, and am at skip a gazillion on my flist, and apparently I'm still thinking about bbc Irene.

so I've come to some head canon that will let me live with her. Maybe Sometimes. When I'm in a good mood. )

And this one, about Mike Stamford of the BBC Sherlock'verse is one of those stories. Blame it on me wanting to be able to find it whenever I want a giggle, okay? But trust me, this is brilliance, indeed. A wonderful look into the motivations and personality of the man who knows both John and Sherlock and decides, for the sake of all good things, that this is a combination that needs to happen.

"Colleague?" Sherlock asked.

John's ears reddened. "Yeah, well," he mumbled, "I didn't want that smarmy bastard to cry confidentiality and send me away, so I promoted myself."

Sherlock shook his head a fraction, as if recalibrating his thoughts, one eyebrow flying. "Ah. 'Colleague' implies a need to know, and 'partner' would have been misconstrued, as would 'flatmate'."

"And bankers don't hand 'friends' money." John held out the cheque, shrugging his apology. "One of us ought to be able to pay the rent."

Sherlock ignored the offering. "Keep it," he ordered. "One of us needs to remember to pay the rent."

"You sank the boat?"

"I created a diversion."

"You sank the boat?"

"Technically, the Friesland is... was a ship rather than a boat. Which is why it was large enough to carry the boat we are in now."

"Sherlock, you sank the boat!"

"That's right, John. Do catch up."

"I was on that boat!"

"You were being held prisoner on that ship by a man who wanted to pull out your fingernails one by one until you told him what you know."

"But I don't know anything!"

"Precisely. Which is why I sank the boat."

"Oh, shut up and paddle."




The prompt today wanted to play with the Friesland, but I'd already done that so I had to reach...
