Excerpt: Sherlock stood in shirtsleeves before the piano in the corner, swaying as he played his violin, his back to me. Sunlight slanted through the southern windows, throwing blues and violets over him, greens and golds at his feet.

“You have questions,” he said and raised his bow. His tone was cool; he did not turn around.

Excerpt: Napoleon glanced over his shoulder. Above the antique desk that crouched on its claw feet on the far side of the room, a faint glow illuminated a fold of the tapestry behind which they had located the safe. Illya had cracked it like it was a child’s toy, but inside there had been a strong box that was resisting his attentions with unusual success.

Excerpt: He flitted across the moonbeams streaming through the windows. When I finally set myself in motion, he had stopped in the last pool of silvery light and was regarding me. There were no flames to colour him there; he was all pallor and darkness.

The room seemed inordinately long as I progressed through it, skirting the benches and pedestals and display cases that seemed to sprout in my path. I thought the shadows about him grew denser as I hastened forward and a fear that he might be swallowed by them before I reached his side gripped me.

He waited, as still and pale as the statues I had passed, except, as I drew near, I could see the pink bloom of his mouth.

Excerpt: “Nothing ever happens to me,” John said, meeting Ella’s detached gaze. He could look someone straight in the eye and not give away a thing. The skill had been as valuable in his career as when he played poker. His therapist glanced down to scratch at her notebook. She had perfected the same technique.

John looked beyond her. Outside the firmly closed windows, bare tree branches scratched at the pale grey page of the sky.

"Anymore," he added silently.

Although these two chapters may be read alone, they may also be read as part of the Mystrade set of stories which, more or less, began with an earlier holiday in We Are Sorry For Any Inconvenience.

Excerpt: The room at the top of the stairs was dominated by a skylight, a huge oval of star-scattered heavens. By the faint light from the landing, Greg saw a few outlines of furniture and more sky out a series of arched windows making up one wall. It didn’t seem very secure, not at all suited to Mycroft. There was a click and the light disappeared, the stars coming into sharper focus.

A/N: Not Series 3 compliant. Written for Let's Write Sherlock Challenge 13-Vacation Getaway. Although the story may be read alone, the theme of the challenge prompted me to write another story in the Mystrade series which, more or less, began with an earlier holiday in We Are Sorry For Any Inconvenience.

Excerpt: Nine days of leisure stretched before Greg. He hadn’t a reservation or a plan for a single hour of it. He’d received a few winks and nudges when he’d said he hadn’t booked anything. A week in bed with a like-minded partner would have been an excellent way to spend the time, but he didn’t have that lined up either. He pushed a certain thought away as he slipped between the tourists and commuters and continued east along the Embankment.

Summary: During the Hiatus, one of the Met’s cases and one of Mycroft’s investigations intersect and both Greg and Mycroft find themselves looking for evidence of something other than crime.
A/N: A little vignette which can be read alone or with the other Mystrade stories that are part of the Other Experiments Series. Ex Libris would be an extra scene between Necropolis and Safer.

Excerpt:
The concerto finished. Greg paused in his reading, eyes flitting around the edges of the page. At the top, a hare and a winged serpent nestled in the vines. Below them, a knight charged inside an ornate letter, brandishing an upraised sword. Was it the picture that had appealed? In the quiet, the faint snap of a mobile sliding closed sounded loud.

We're Sorry For Any Inconvenience may also be read as part of the Other Experiments series where it would fit in after Carbonado.

Excerpt: Lestrade considered the man standing in his office. He was sure that if Sherlock wanted his brother to know he was alive and well and where he and John were, Mycroft wouldn’t be suggesting a friendly chat over dinner. Mycroft gestured towards the door as Greg stood and rounded the desk. He knew it was a dangerous move to accept, but Sherlock wasn’t the only one who loved a challenge.
