Bipolar Sherlock

Does Sherlock have a bipolar affective disorder? Is he a manic depressive? If so, how is he treated? How does it affect his life and his relationships?

I explore:

  • some general myth busting about bipolar

  • psychiatric evaluation of Sherlock’s mood

  • explain how to produce a realistic version of Sherlock with bipolar for any aspiring fanfiction writers.

Land of Hope and Glory Part 1

Summary: “John stares blankly at the detonator in his hand. He knows he will never live to be eleven or twelve or thirteen. He deserves to die, but the man standing next to him doesn’t. Sherlock doesn’t deserve this.”

AU – The British Empire spans the globe; her greatest threat is not foreign enemies but domestic terrorists, killing in the name of freedom. Mycroft Holmes leads the grim war on terror and Sherlock is his best secret agent: cold, calculating and obsessive. He is hell-bent on destroying the rebels – until one explosive day when he meets a child soldier named John.
