To Everything, There is a Season- 8/8 Complete!Rating:
PG 13 (just to be safe)Characters: This chapter:
Sherlock, Lestrade, Mycroft, John!Spoilers:
A not quite attentive parent? Slightly dark, manipulative relationship. Drug use. Angst. Much angst.Disclaimer:
I owe none of this, sadly enough. And I beg little familiarity with the British school system, police procedure, or drugs or drug use. Also- possible Americanisms, and this hasn't been completely beta-ed.Summary:
Act I: This is the story of Sherlock and Mycroft's childhood together, back when Sherlock still looked up to and his world revolved around his brother. When Sherlock lived like he wanted to and only his brother understood.
Of course, it couldn't last forever; no matter how much he wanted.
Written pre- series 2, in vignette's from Mycroft's POV.
Act II: Having decided he doesn't need anyone and can survive perfectly well on his own, Sherlock strikes out into the world. He hits a few bumps and lows before finally finding the one person he's really been looking for all along.
Written pre- series 2, in vignette's from various characters' POV.This chapter:
Sherlock Holmes and John Watson finally meet... need I say more?A/N:
Well, this is it folks. After months and nearly a year of working on this story, we are finally at the end.
Somehow John's chapter, the most important chapter in my mind, turned out to be the shortest. I considered adding to it and making it longer, but it feels perfect and I don't want to change anything.
Just a warning: this chapter has not been beta'd, so be aware I have no familiarity with nearly everything UK. I apologize for any Americanisms, or anything else that may not make sense. Also, the tenses might be a little funny in some places.
Any feedback would be very welcomed; or any ideas for stories from this verse you would like me to write, I would love to hear! This verse is very dear to me and I love writing in it. I don't quite want to leave it yet!
I hope you enjoy, thanks for reading! And for sticking through this with me! Thanks everyone!( The end of the beginning.... (Part 8)Collapse )
