    She has access to basically everything her parents did, and there are many things she didn't bother to search through. Mycroft also usually kidnaps people and is less conventional by nature. Perhaps it's a secret that could threaten Sherlock's connections with the police and such, which is pretty vital to most of the plots.

    I don't do the arsehole version too well, it's bloody exhausting. I can do you an early thirties all right.

    But I'm like 90% sure that Sherlock is in his early thirties in the BBC show too. Arsehole version?

    Mycroft is a calculating character, kidnapping if not done properly (untraceable as well as having some sort of immunity in case she actually go to the police) can destroy his career and send him to prison.

    A criminal-charge severe enough that could send Sherlock to prison without even big brother can help? Mycroft 'The British Government' Holmes?

    The thing is, she isn't the type to go to the police. She deems them useless unless she's completely helpless. If not, she'll try to figure whatever it is on her own.

    In that case, what might prevent Mycroft of making sure that the information will not become public knowledge, ever?

    Something her parents did to it? Like if Mycroft sees it, it gets released to everyone.

    The deadman's switch. It is possible but on the other hand it will put their only offspring into danger so great, it practically would be an open season for her. Don't think that Mycroft letting Sherlock to have Irene Adler's phone for six months is because he cannot break the lock himself. There are ways to circumvent even the supposed acid trap.

    FYI, one of my Mycrofts protects Sherlock to the point that he adhere to 'the dead doesn't talk' principle. Considering how his world is, it is not farfetched.

    I can't think of any other effective method. I'm sure Mycroft is saying that those diet tips better be good. XD

    The early thirties is around time of Study in Pink to TGG-ish? Arsehole version prone to throwing himself onto the settee and sulking Very Happy
    Possibly information too sensitive to be made public.
    There's an ACD story CHAS where Sherlock goes to blackmailers house, to retrioev docs from a safe, a woman arrives, he hides, woman being blackmailed shoots the blackmailer, basically he witnesses a murder and lets her get away because she's not a danger to the public.

    Wink Some sort of secret formula for instant good health and ballet-dancer figure?

    IMO, don't tie Mycroft on this if you cannot think ways to contain his 'Queen, country and little brother' zeal. What about your supposed separate plotbunny for Mycroft?

    Yeah, around that time. Oh, that arsehole version. He seems to have many.

    The other plotbunny was to use Sherlock, Mycroft's weak point, against him. She would carefully manipulate him under Moriarty's control (this is when he's alive, obviously) so that Mycroft would risk himself. From there, she would try to kill him.

    *Smirk* I like that, it is just the matter of how much I must contain myself from releasing the full business end of my real - full version of Mycroft.

    Lol, a worldly man for sure.

    Back to plotting and scheming. What is your separate plot for Sherlock?

    It was basically what I mentioned before without the whole Mycroft thing going on. My character goes to Sherlock for help as a last resort. Another combination of the Sherlock and Mycroft plots would be that she goes to Sherlock half for her own purposes and half for Moriarty.

    If she also in a business relationship with Moriarty, she would be on Mycroft's list of 'to examine for use or dispose at will'. Which one our Sherlock is interested on?

    The last part denotes a working relationship with a notorious criminal who is not only a thorn on Mycroft's side ever since the Bond Air incident but also dare to toy with little brother dearest.

    Yes, I understand that, but what were you saying when you asked which one Sherlock was interested in?

    I'm interested in solving a case in which this young woman's parents were murdered.
