Double Checking

Rated: PG
Category: Double drabble. Gen. Family.

Summary: It’s not just Santa who checks his list twice.

---

The first time, he’d made his own list.

It had taken some doing, since he hadn’t even known where to start.

Fortunately, he had friends that did, and the basics had already been done.

Several of those were in play, of course, but leave it to Sherlock to be unique.

He’d asked them to check for the rare ones. The ones that might make sense to a mind like Sherlock’s.

The doctors had given him that look – the one he received so often from those who didn’t know his brother – but they’d done what he asked.

When some of their tests came back positive yet again, they shook their heads in disbelief, but Mycroft only sighed.

It took five days for Sherlock to regain consciousness that time.

When he did, the idea of the list was introduced.

Somehow, miraculously, Sherlock agreed.

The list had made Mycroft’s life so much easier. It made antidotes and reversal agents and supportive care and expected duration of action so much more predictable.

But you’d better believe he still ran all the tests, even the ones not on the list.

Because Mycroft Holmes was no fool.

And only a fool didn’t check the list twice.
