Why You Should Read It:
Its a lovely “what-if” tale revolving around John and Sherlock meeting as teenagers.  Their personalities are sharp and jagged, but fit neatly together.  Their relationship is a bit unhealthy but very them.  I’m labelling it “dark” because of some light themes that appear, but are very muted.  The sequel (yet to be posted) is supposed to expand a bit on these.  Harry is a great character and I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen Sherlock’s father in fic as a character and not just a very minor presence.
