Oh, Brother Mine by daretobeboring Oh, Brother Mine by daretobeboring
Man, I am Captain of the good ship Angst lately. :P Sherlock waking up post-overdose in hospital to find Mycroft there. Because I am the biggest sucker for any sort of brotherly love between the Holmes siblings.

EDIT: Spam. Deviantart continues to think I am it. I'm really sorry I can't thank everyone individually, but please know I'm incredibly flattered by the love this is getting. Thanks so much, everyone!

EDIT2: Oh, oh, oh my lord, can I please point everyone in this direction? :iconyodaben2: wrote a flawless fic (in French no less, I don't know why this makes it better but it does) inspired by this piece and I think it's quite beautiful. All of you go read it. Go go go.

So I first discovered this picture about a month ago. Then last week, I happened to stumble across 1984 in the library, and not thinking much of it, I checked it out. the instant I hit the "Big Brother Is Watching You" bit, my first reaction was "O_O" Then I remembered this picture, and I nearly choked trying to keep from making too much noise in the library. Clever you! :D

I may or may not have commented on this before, ages ago under my previous name (Randee15, I think), but I just wanted to again praise you for this beautiful picture. You've captured so much emotion and love in this; and I also love the quiet "calm before the storm" atmosphere.

And Mycroft reading "1984" is just hilarious. It adds just the right teensy bit of comic relief to this sombre scene. (And it's realistic -- while in the hospital, whether as a patient or a visitor, you really do need ample reading material!)

Mycroft... is reading... "1984"! Because he's BIG BROTHER! pijehpapciha;gejip

Sorry.

Such a beautiful, but sad (of course) piece. I think Mycroft was Sherlock's go-to when it came to drugs, so I was really happy to see this. Thank you!
