Misc:  exiled to Mantua (Shakespeare)

Consider me your Shakespeare Good Fairy

Just in case anyone is interested, Digital Theatre has a promotional coupon for 25% off their Shakespeare productions. The information is here. It includes the Tennant/Tate "Much Ado About Nothing", as well as a bunch of other productions. The offer is good until Monday.

I have bought "Much Ado About Nothing", and it was well worth the price. Even the Standard Definition is very high quality.

Summary: A family reunion takes place at the beach house in Nice, six months after Siger's death. Mycroft takes his first holiday in seven years, and the family tries to find a new normal.
Author's notes: Set in the Trio 'verse, post-'Carry On'.

I'm really, really, really sorry about all these OCs. I really am. I can't help myself. I'm sorry. They just sort of...showed up, and I made the mistake of letting them in, and now they're using all the hot water and eating all my food. Please send help.

This is the weird result of aelfgyfu_mead's comment of wanting to see the Holmes brothers in bunk beds at the beach house. I started one story, but then got distracted by this idea, and now 7,000 words later, here we are. There are bunk beds, though. I did manage to get them in.
