Well not so much a piano, but.

( It hadn't always been like this. )
Don't ask, I don't even know. I have nine Sherlock stories in various states of completion (Sherlock/Irene and Irene being awesome on her own and a handful of Sherlock/John and a short piece with Sherlock and Molly and two separate film fusions and the plottiest post-Reichenbach gen epic ever), and this was really not one of them. But the widespread fancasting of Tom Hiddleston as Victor Trevor has never gelled with me (sorry, Hiddles, I really do like you), and when I realized that, in my own headcanon, Victor is totally the subtle, multi-faceted, brilliant JJ Field, a new bunny was born. This one will be told in four parts, as is any sonata worth its salt. Beware the shameless abuse of musical metaphor.
Epic thanks to the best Britpicker in the world, everywherestars - you're are amazing and I adore you, my dear.
