Rating: PG13 - mpreg with mentions of sex but nothing graphic (although Chapter 24 is pushing the boundaries!)

Summary: John held himself together after Sherlock jumped but the emotional strain was enormous and Sherlock didn't fare much better. When Sherlock finally returned they were both just so glad to reaffirm their bond they didn't really think about the future, or if they did they simply assumed their lives would carry on as they always had. 
Needless to say they soon discover that their prolonged separation has had a very specific effect on John; the results of which mean nothing will ever be the same again. Told entirely in 221B’s this story charts all the little things Sherlock and John experience as their lives change forever.  
The B’s so far are Blood, Breathe, Bag, Beta, Bucket, Brother, Brilliant, Bet, Best, Bother, Bang, Bleak, Beginning, Baby, Born, Biscuit, Beneath, Bump, Basement, Beetroot, Blimp, Blur, Benedict, Beg, Break, Butterfly, Boy, Brooding, Bemused, Blue, Broken, Bourbon, Before, Breeches, Bedroom, Bewildered, Bassinet, Bee, Bach, Black, Blinked, Blame, Blind, Brain, Better, Blaze, Back, Birth, Been, Blooming, Betty, Bored, Bone, Believable, Burning, Bladder, Bugger, Blank, Beautiful, Bond & Blessed.

Author's Note: This isn't standard Omegaverse because, as I'm not comfortable writing dub/non-con scenes, I decided to create
my own version. If you want to know more about it, I've done an explanatory post here.


Chapter 61 - Blessed

‘Mycroft,’ Sherlock calls ever so softly, beckoning to his brother with his free hand, ‘Come in.’

‘I’m not intruding?’ Mycroft remains in the doorway, his usual confidence absent.

‘It doesn’t normally bother you,’ Sherlock’s retort contains no malice and when he meets Mycroft’s eyes they both remember another age, another time, another life. After a heartbeat Mycroft inclines his head and moves into the room, silently shutting the door before padding, cat-footed, over to the bed.

‘I should have brought a camera,’ he murmurs, eyes travelling over the tableau of Sherlock cradling John and his son, both of whom are sleeping peacefully.

‘Over there somewhere,’ Sherlock waves his free hand towards the side of the room, ‘but that can wait. First I want you to meet your nephew … Hamish Sherrinford Watson-Holmes.’

Mycroft looks down at the tiny child and once again the past rushes in. Except the last time he was introduced to a new born he was seven years old and the child had ivory skin and a shock of black curls, not chubby pink cheeks and a head of golden fuzz.

‘He’s got John’s colouring.’

‘And cobalt blue eyes.’

‘All babies’ eyes are blue, Sherlock,’ Mycroft squeezes his shoulder gently.

‘Hamish’s won’t change.’ You could bend rocks round Sherlock’s certainty.

‘Regardless,’ Mycroft smiles, properly, ‘You have been truly blessed.’

Oh how wonderful! I love your Mycroft here (or should I say uncle Mycroft). I have enjoyed all prior installments and I am sad to see it almost ending (cries...)
I would totally love to see the picture Mycroft takes, I am sure is would be priceless.
Thanks for sharing

*hugs you and offers one of her tissues*
I am also very sad *sniffle* but getting comments like this cheer me up no end.
I'd love to see that picture too. I'm hoping Kiz - the wonderful person responsible for the sketch I'm using as the story icon - might see this and sketch it for me. Fingers crossed!

A bless, this one is really sweet. Mycroft you silly man! I'm sure you phone has a wonderful hi-res camera in it! If not "Anthea" - who is no doubt waiting in the hall - has one in hand.

One more chapter! :(
Thanks for sharing all of these with the rest of us.

Ah but you see Mycroft has left his phone and Betty *sniggers quitely* outside as he didn't want to be disturbed. Yup, a tiny weeny baby has cracked the iceman's veneer very effectively :)
And thank you for commenting and chatting and generally being a lovely person!

*still wibbling*

This is really, really sweet. It's nice for the brothers to be able to get past their usual blathering and just enjoy this amazing moment. And, yes, Uncle Mycroft, take lots of pictures!

I just re-read the entire series on AO3 and was hoping that you'd go for "Sherrinford" for Hamish's middle name. It's just too perfect. As are the cobalt blue eyes. *joins Sherlock in his certainty* :)

I'm so torn! I love this story SO much (I love happy endings/beginnings!), but I'm really sad that there's only one chapter left! :(

*hugs you fiercely*
I'm going to miss this too!
*wipes eyes and tries not to sniff any more*
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments and encouragement and general wonderfulness!

Hamish!!!!! From the description he sounds very beautiful! Do you think Sherlock and John would mind if I steal him for a little while? :p

Uncle Mycrofy, you are going to be wrapped around Hamish's little finger. There's no doubt about that!

*sniffs happy tears*

Give them a week of no sleep and crying and they'll be happy for you to borrow him for a couple of hours!
*hugs you and proffers the tissue box*

Thank you! And I know what you mean about needing the picture - do you know any artists you could persuade?

Thank you! And I don't, either, even though if I wrote more I'd just be stretching it for stretches sake. However I have a cunning plan ...

Okay, this one made me sad in a completely different way from the others, because dammit, I don't want this scene to be a 221B! I want it to keep going, I want to know what else Mycroft will say to Sherlock, and what they'll talk about, and that it's cut short by needs of the format is MAKING ME SAD. Because I LOVE when Sherlock and Mycroft talk, and I'm only getting a snippet of it!

I love that rocks bend around Sherlock's certainty, and that Mycroft hesitates before coming in.

HOW IS THERE ONLY ONE MORE LEFT?????

I'm really kind of chuffed that you're sad there isn't more of my writing, although obviously I don't like making you sad. However I will put a continuation on the list (which will make more sense once I've put the last chapter up, I promise).
I love Sherlock's certainty too!
*hugs you very hard*

Yeah, Uncle Mycroft continues to be love. He should have brought a camera - I love that.

You could bend rocks round Sherlock’s certainty. So, so cute, but in a very Sherlockian way. Great line, great sentiment.

Yes, Sherlock does take emphatic to a whole new level :)
