A/N: I do not own BBC Sherlock or any characters from the series. I am certainly not the first person to come up with the idea of Hamish, however I did try to keep my ideas as original as possible.
I am not a people person and I'll never pretend to be. We, Holmes', aren't exactly known for our social skills. We're rude, impatient, and possess a remarkable ability to hail cabs at a moment's notice. We also have a keen eye for detail; so much so it usually sparks harsh resentment in others.
At least Sherlock and I are like that.
I try to be patient, loving, and understanding like John because I know Sherlock always wanted that (though he never actually said it), but I'm not. Honest to God I try, but people are just such insufferable twats that I can't take it and I snap at them.
As a whole my life is good. Our life is good. We officially moved to a posh, little house in Chelsea when I was three, but we still rent 221B Baker Street and stay there during cases sometimes. When we walk around town people recognize us. Paparazzi follow fairly regularly. Buggers. It makes being antisocial much more difficult than it should be.
Growing up in Chelsea is its own reward (and its own punishment, for that matter). Living in Chelsea automatically equals money, power and social status (for the record, I don't particularly give a shit about any of these things). I attended a relatively expensive private school for boys, but there I was considered "poor" because I don't drive a Lexus or have a summer home in Prague (and for the record, I'm not old enough to drive). (I'm in college right now, mostly because I'm a genius. In England you usually start college at 16.) If you don't live in Chelsea we all just seem like a bunch of snooty rich people. Some of the time, you'd be right.
I don't judge people based on how much money they have. I base my opinion of them on how gargantuan their level of idiocy is. I honestly think it's fairer for everyone this way. They are assessed on their frequency of stating ignorant and/or totally brainless comments and I am assessed (negatively, more often than not) based on my reaction to their short-sightedness.
By now you're probably thinking 'yes, yes, this is all very nice, but just who the hell are you?' Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Hamish Watson-Holmes. My parents are Dr. John Watson and Sir Sherlock Holmes. Welcome to my life.
A/N: I will repost chapter 1 as soon as I am done writing chapter 2.
