Why This Must Be Read: Sherlock loses his mind and Molly holds on to it for him, and they see the world's largest fibreglass Holstein cow.  Another fic where Sherlock ends up at Molly's flat after his fall from St. Bart's but very original and well-written!  The Sherlock stream of thought here is kind of amazing, so spot on, probably the most well-written Sherlock Holmes I've ever read.  I came across this recced on Tumblr last night and just fell in love with it. Basically, Sherlock is at Molly's, forced to turn to Mycroft to hunt down the assassins, and meanwhile must resign himself to the fact that he might never be able to return to his old life again, never see John, Mrs. Hudson, or Lestrade again.  He completely loses it at first and Molly is the only thing keeping him grounded.  Fic is long, stays in character, and just completely wonderful.
