Primogeniture (BBC Sherlock drabble, Mycroft + Sherlock)

Note: Unless otherwise noted, all my Sherlock writings can be regarded as Holmes brothers gen or pre-slash. Alas, the heart ships what it ships.

And for this one, I hope to God I didn't get the peer system wrong....

Title: Primogeniture
Characters: Mycroft, Sherlock
Rating: G

Mycroft Julius Holmes became the 7th Viscount Holmes at the age of twenty and ended his tenure in the House of Lords by twenty-four. Yet it would be fair to say that his real career did not start until afterward, when he left all spotlight to occupy, in his own words, a minor position within the British government.

It was a familiar position for the Holmes men to be in. Mycroft did all the right things, exactly as the 6th Viscount Holmes had done before him. Service. Duty. Crown and Country—all those probably got engraved into the DNA somewhere along the line, together with the gift and the curse. They'd had ancestors laying buried underneath those words in Westminster, recalcitrant and solemn.

Sherlock hated it.

Despite all his genius, it never occurred to him that Mycroft would turn out just like Father.


D: awwwwww
They totally make up in the end I swear.
Lovely fic! Loved the insight into Mycroft and Sherlock's background.
Thank you. :) The rest of their background was rather foggy in my head but this part really stood out to me.
哦漏你也阿福了吗你也来萌兄弟了吗!真是人生何处不相逢啊! >_<







这个周末来鸡血+1 XDDDDDD

Awww, lovely done - super short and to the point!
Thank you. :D I hope to expand on it some time.
The peerage title is fine, and Mycroft would have inherited the title far enough back to have been one of the remaining hereditary peers before he relinquished his position in the Upper House. It's a little different now; the majority of the Lords in the House of Lords are now elected to their seats, and further reform is planned to do away with hereditary seats in the Upper House entirely.

Viscounts are pretty minor nobility; most inherit little more than a title these days.
Thanks for the elaboration. Good to know that wiki did not fail me. :P And it seemed a bit too...flashy to make the Holmes a Duke or an Earl, so I settled with Viscount. :)
ohh, why must you say pre-slash XD

i would love to have some full slash holmes brothers :D

but alas, yours is the second best thing I can be happy with :D
Oh, I'm so happy to see a fellow shipper! Given the rate my morals are degenerating, I'm sure full-fledged brothercest slash will develop in time.
Sweet. So bitter. (Here from brothermine).
Very nice - snappy, punchy: both in a deeper way as opposed to a more common way (because this is Holmes&Holmes after all). My brain is just not functioning right now.

I like it.

Holmescest is quite, quite delicious to me. I'm not particularly worried I think that :3 really. Though the only other incest pairing I've enjoyed is Quincest (Bleach)

I've seen a few fic - there was one which I read about two years back which was ACD-Canon that kinda made me go Oh- that just odd but damn it's hot - plus I had one in my mind before I realised somebody else had already written it! :(
Yay for acceptance! I am actually really, really afraid of posting non-gen H&H stuff to any comm. I think people are going to go "omg wtf is wrong with her". :(

As for that fic you had in mind--I say go for it anyway! :D
