I love your brother bonding stuff. What struck me as really powerful about this fic was when Sherlock asks why Mycroft brought him back when he knew he would have come back to find his best friend had moved on - not that Mary had taken Sherlock's place, but that John had expanded his life to include someone else who somewhat helped to fill that hole. And Sherlock can't deal, so he wishes he'd never even come back. That's some great insight into Sherlock's character; I don't know that I had thought about it that way.
It's great how Mycroft blends cold, hard logic with regard to why he did bring Sherlock back with an encouragement to Sherlock to acknowledge his need to connect with others and actually encourage Sherlock to try to find a place in John's new life. Rereading some of my favorites of your fics recently, it's struck me how the brothers sort of trade off the role of the more "human" one. The sharing of that role in this fic is interesting: Sherlock is acting vulnerable and human but wishing to be able to be alone again, while Mycroft is cold in tone and demeanor but reminds Sherlock that he is not and should not be a machine. And of course, his reason for being here is "human" as well: he obviously wants to make sure Sherlock's okay.
Bringing it back around to their pointless brotherly squabbles was probably the best way to calm Sherlock down, actually. I'm glad it helped Sherlock feel less alone, exactly as Mycroft intended.
Another wonderful Sherlock fic. Well done! :)

Ah, nicely done! I love the witty Holmes brothers here - not just true to character but a believable continuation of their relationship.

Oh that line made me LOL. I know it's the title, but I'd become so absorbed in the Holmsian banter that I didn't even think which card game it was.

Wow, that's brilliant! I love that ending so much more than the original! The characterization is just spot on, too!
Mycroft and Sherlock are so great when they're trying to be nice to each other. :3
Great job on this!

This was even more lovely than your HLV brothers' piece-both are terrific. Since Mycroft seemed to appreciate the change that Sherlock would come home to better than he did, it's fitting (and touching) that he'd step up to help with this big bump in Sherlock's life.

This really made the end of that episode so much better. I was so sad when Sherlock had to go home all alone without John. Thanks for writing this!
