He just stood there, hands in pockets, looking at his big brother as nothing had happened. Well, it was his usual look, the one that couldn't tell you much of the thoughts and emotions hidden behind those eyes. Actually, Mycroft was not much different, they were brothers after all and they were both extremely good at hiding feelings. So they were standing staring at each other trying to guess the following movement of one another. Sherlock expected everything, just everything, he never knew what could Mycroft do if his honour was wounded, and Sherlock was sure that it was. He hadn't told his brother about the plan, he had made him consider his little brother dead. It hurt, it definitely hurt. Not his feelings, but his pride. He had always been the person who knew everything about everyone. And now he was fooled by his own little brother. And that fact made the great Sherlock Holmes feel nervous. Like he was again five years old standing before his brother with his broken toy in one hand and a notebook torn apart in another. Oh, he felt extremely nervous.

And then, all of a sudden, Mycroft made two rapid steps towards him and just hugged him with one hand. It was strange, unpredictable, stunning, but somehow right. Sherlock was not good at analyzing feelings and emotions, even his own ones and what was going on in heads and hearts of other people he could never tell for sure. It was not his area. But now he suddenly understood, that he had really hurt his big brother, hurt his feelings. He finally understood that Mycroft was the one who cared about him all along. In his own strange way, but he did. That stubborn politician, holding so much power in his hands was worried about his stupid little brother. Stupid and cold-hearted little brother.

Sherlock lowered his head, feeling the vanishing smell of somehow strangely familiar perfume and breathed out:

"I'm sorry, Mycroft"

I hope they do something in the serie, that there relationship becomes better, that Sherlock understands that Mycroft actually really cares (unless what he did) although I like it sometimes when they annoy each other ;)

Oh, all my feelings for this short fanfiction! :love:
Why? First of all, because of the idea. I am (still) so disappointed that Mycroft was left out in Reichenbach; I'm talking about the scene when Moriarty talks about killing Sherlock's only friends. It's like Sherlock and Mycroft don't care for each other, and they are just trying to be more annoying than the other :/ Me don't like, because that's not the kind of relationship I had hoped for.
ANYWAY, now we have it, question is, how does it continue???
In my imagination it is more or less like you described it - Sherlock, because of what so reasons however, didn't say a word to Mycroft, who will be first pretty pissed off, but secretly very very happy that his younger brother has survived. Then maybe a little smile or some awkward hugging, but then the "Imma better tan u!"-thing will start all over again. But I am convinced their relationship will be a better from this point on. :)
So, to get straight to your story: I think you brought it wonderful across. (:
I just think that Sherlock is maybe a bit too emotional, but that is your interpretation of his character, so I'll shut my mouth about it; I won't tell you what you have to write! XD

A last word about the format: It is indeed a very short story, but I would still have made some paragraphs - it's just nicer for the eye than those 3 blocks. ;) (For example new paragraphs at: "So they were...", "And now he was fooled...", "And that fact...", "He finally..." )

Да, это уж точно. "Ох уж эти мне братья. Жить с ними невозможно, но и без них тоже не проживёшь..."
