Story: Whispers in the Corner
Author: esama
Fandom: Sherlock
Genre: Crossover, Drama, Mystery, Romance
Pairing/Character: Harry/Mycroft, Sherlock/Watson
Summary: Everything started with a stumble - his new life in a new world as well as his surprisingly successful career as a medium.

Squeeing: I think everyone has writers they will cheerfully follow from fandom to fandom like a puppy on a leash. Esama is one of those writers for me. What I especially like about this fic is how the old trope of "Harry falls into a different world" is given a gritty, but not suicidal edge. The idea for what Harry ends up doing with the Resurrection Stone is great, and as always, Esama is a consummate storyteller. This whole universe is very vivid for me.

Excerpt: But it is hundred times better than some of the alternatives and even while his magic would make him exceptionally good and successful thief or a burglar, it is simply not within Harry to go down that road. Being a medium is rather ridiculous – and he is cheating every step of the way. Anyone could've done it with the Ring after all. But still. It's something.

i love the fact that you matches him up with MYCROFT!! Its a nicely done story with layers that make it more than just whimsy, not that there is anything wrong with whimsy.

It was an interesting piece. Esama always had interesting ideas which sometimes seem to be rare in fandom.
