Leaving Home

Bonding with his baby brother Sherlock, Mycroft leaves for school far too soon. Enjoy this next chapter of Memento Vivere as much as I have at Leaving Home! Art above by GorryBear at DeviantArt.com!

Teaser below!

The days remaining until his departure seemed to pass more quickly than time normally did, although rationally Mycroft knew that such was not the case. But there were fittings to be had for his tail coats, striped black trousers, and black waistcoats. In addition, there were other necessary purchases to be made and the selecting of items that would go into the two large trunks being packed. Add in the deciding of which books he wanted to take with him and Mycroft was kept very busy indeed. He missed his lazy afternoons with Sherlock.

Almost at the end of the preparations, he carefully wrapped and packed two other items in the case that would stay with him though-out the voyage: the daguerreotype of his mother as a young woman and the silver urn that contained her ashes. The responsibility of carrying the ashes to England was not one he resented. Then, finally, he packed his journals and the binoculars.

Just as he finished, there was a soft tap at his door. “Come in,” he said.

The door opened and Ananda stepped in, a small brown paper wrapped parcel in her hand. “I have a gift for you,” she said.

Mycroft pushed himself up from the floor and she handed him the parcel. “Thank you,” he said, before carefully unwrapping it. Inside was a small watercolor painting of Sherlock sitting in the garden and smiling.

Ananda gave him a gentle pat on his arm. “So he can be with you always. And be assured that William will have the tintype for which you sat last week to look upon.”

In The Silence Between

It’s the tale of Sherlock’s life, beautifully told, while including his violin! My friend mydogwatson does it once again, she never disappoints!

As always we have a teaser…

John Watson was also a man who had dreadful nightmares. 

The first few times it happened, Sherlock was at a total loss as to what he should do. A proud man like John Watson would hardly want to be seen in such a situation. But at the same time, it did not seem right to just ignore the sounds coming from the upstairs bedroom. The tortured moans. The whimpers. The banging of a fist against the wall.

It had taken an embarrassingly long time for Sherlock to have an idea about how to help, although once he did, it seemed painfully obvious. He picked up his violin and briefly thought about what to play. Something Grandmama had once said came back to him.

“The most comforting and peaceful music ever composed, my lovely boy, isVenus The Bringer of Peace. Its exquisite tranquillity has the power to soothe my soul.”

Sherlock was not concerned at all by the matter of souls, but if there was anyone who deserved exquisite tranquillity, it was John Watson. So on nightmare nights, it was always the Holst that he played.

Sometimes when he played, it would just go quiet upstairs and he assumed that John had fallen back to sleep. Other nights John would get out of bed and pad barefooted into the sitting room, curl up in his chair and just listen to the music.

They never talked about it.

Sherlock liked to think that they didn’t need words. That the music was enough.

Enjoy the full story In The Silence Between and please share your thoughts on this amazing story, afterward!

Anywhen…

Life has been incredibly busy for me, and I know you’ve heard this before, so I won’t bore you… Today though I made myself a cuppa of tea, and read mydogwatson‘s latest story: Anywhen! It’s a happy ending to a chain of stories, as John and Sherlock finish their little dance! I especially love the connection between the Victorian Holmes and Watson! Of course, I’ll tell no more than that, you’ll have to read for yourself!
