Summary: He signs his correspondences to the police as Sherlock H, as he always has, and he signs his letters to his parents as SH -- they can take what they will from the S. He signs his school assignments S. Holmes, and manages to get away with it because he is the only Holmes in his classes. FtM!Sherlock.

Review: I want to start out by saying that this is an amazing, and extremely well-rendered fic. Despite starting out as a Child!Sherlock story, it stays true to his acerbic personality.

I love how his relationship with Mycroft is handled from beginning to end. It shows why they have such antagonism without making either sibling the 'bad brother'. Each of their problems with each other are perfectly understandable and in the end they come to a truce, which lends itself well to what happens in Sherlock canon. You might even find yourself wanting to watch the series again with this version of Sherlock in mind.

Sherry's slow slide into understanding that she's not like the other girls, and then into discovering who zhe really was is amazing, heartbreaking, and extremely well rendered. I cannot suggest that you read this story enough
