Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Genre: Gen
Characters: Mycroft Holmes, Anthea
Rating: T

Summary: There was something that Mycroft Holmes could not work out. He detested this.

Also available at the AO3, as is the rest of the series. Not necessary to have read the others to follow this one.

Author's note:

Title is a misheard lyric from Mountain Sound by Of Monsters and Men. (Warning for Extreme Icelandic Hipsterism in that video.) The actual lyric is "hold your horses now," but I'm sticking to my version, because I like it better. (My son swears it's "hold your horses down," but I'm pretty sure he's wrong, too.)

Thanks to the indefatigable apocryphile/[livejournal.com profile] cityesm for a beta & britpick, as always, and to [archiveofourown.org profile] leigh_nahurriyeh for lending me her Mycroft ~~feels~~ for a few thousand words.

Ms. Devetzi? May I have your assistance for a moment? )
