Title: Father and Farther

Fandoms: Sherlock and The Professionals
Disclaimer: These universes do not belong to me; I'm just an appreciative visitor. I make no profit from this fan work.
Description: In the process of protecting his brother and himself, Mycroft Holmes solves a mystery more than four decades old.
Historian's Note: This takes place in 2005, approximately four-and-a-half years prior to the events in the Sherlock episode "A Study in Pink."
Author's Note: If I've done my job properly, familiarity with one of these two programmes is all you need in order for the story to work. This fits in the same universe as my Sherlock story "The Distance Getting Close," but no knowledge of that story is necessary for reading this one.

Title: Five Birthdays
Author: Morgan Stuart
Fandom: Sherlock
Disclaimer: This universe does not belong to me; I'm just an appreciative visitor. I make no profit from this fan work.
Description: Some birthdays are welcome. Others are not.
Author's Note: Birthdays usually don't affect me much, but later this month I celebrate a significant one, and it's on my mind more than I expected (or wanted) it to be. (Generation Watson, here I come.) This is a result.
Warnings (Highlight to Read): #5 includes general references to the Reichenbach scenario and assumed character death.

Title: Recorded
Author: Morgan Stuart
Fandom: Sherlock
Disclaimer: This universe does not belong to me; I'm just an appreciative visitor. I make no profit from this fan work.
Description: When each of the three men screams, all Sherlock can do is listen.
Historian's Note: This was originally written as a standalone story. If you wish, however, you're welcome to read it as a companion to the ficlets "Enclosed" and "Imagined." The story takes place after the Sherlock episode "The Great Game."
Author's Note: I'd honestly planned for this little horror piece to remain an anonymous posting at [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc_fic for the "evil Moriarty, give me chills" prompt, but now, a couple of months later, I realize that I don't have it in me to leave my stories lonely and unclaimed, regardless of their merits (or lack thereof). C'est la vie. This was, one might say, an experiment in style.
Warnings (Highlight to Read): Offscreen violence, torture, suicidal themes, and possible character death, open to interpretation.

Description: We are what we read, aren't we?
Author's Note: [livejournal.com profile] methylviolet10b requested a story in which no one dies or even bleeds (I'm paraphrasing). Not really my area, is it? This is my third story to be written in an airplane/airport. Consider yourself warned.

Description: All Sherlock has is time.
Author's Note: This is a variation on a favourite theme, written because I thought the "Fall Back into Sherlock Fest" at [livejournal.com profile] sherlockmas needed a bit more horror for the season. This is a 221b ficlet: 221 words, with the last word beginning with a "b."

Description: John Watson wasn't the first person Mycroft Holmes kidnapped for a little chat in a warehouse.
Author's Note: Okay, let's try this again. It seems my two-part experiment with the 221b format (221 words, last word beginning with a "b") was, in fact, a three-part experiment. This is the third part.

Warnings (Highlight to Read): Musing/discussion about suicide
