Summary: When Professor McGonagall went to visit Harry Watson, son of Mr. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, to deliver his Hogwarts letter, she was in the mindset of performing a familiar if stressful annual routine. Consequently she was unprepared for the shock of finding the cause behind Harry Potter's disappearance. BBC Sherlock HP crossover AU

Brilliant. Characterisation, world-building, mysteries, deductions, clever plans, relationships, character growth, mistakes, consequences, they're all there, and all well done. This is an epic because it covers Harry's first four years at Hogwarts; you might want to take a breather in between each year... except that you won't want to, because this will drag you in and not let you go.
