    Summary

    The watercolor painting on his studio table mimics the sunset: stains of color running into one another, edges blurring and lines saturating around coin-sized pools of wet pigment. He watches as the gleam of color dulls into a dry matte, and he thinks of how his own life is doing the same. A drying out of the steadfast and glorious career of Mycroft Holmes, his covert accomplishments disintegrating into the bones of an archaeological dig that no one will ever even think to fund.

    Mycroft Holmes has sequestered himself in a desolate part of the world as he struggles with the consequences of the events at Sherrinford. He is confronted with the unexpected when a visitor appears on his doorstep.

    He's not as strong as he thinks he is, but if Greg Lestrade cannot find Mycroft Holmes, how on earth can he be expected to help the man? Can two lonely men find peace at Christmas?

    Warning that this is a loooooong fic. Thank you for your patience...

    Summary

    "All lives end... all hearts are broken."

    Mycroft Holmes never needed a reason to loathe Christmas—but getting dumped by the love of his life certainly did the trick. It's been a year since Mycroft lost the man he adored, and with Christmas Eve fast approaching, he's counting down the hours until all this festive lunacy is over.

    Sadly for Mycroft, fate has other plans.

    It's going to take three ghosts to show him the error of his ways. But can he make amends in time? Or will he prove to himself, once and for all, that caring is not an advantage?

    Summary

    Mycroft has to visit the village record shop to find the gifts Sherlock wants for Christmas. Of course, that puts him squarely in the one place he doesn't want to be, owing to the spike-haired, fantastically-enticing boy working behind the counter, whose name is Greg Lestrade...

    Summary

    Christmas is, after all, a time for forgiveness.

     

    Technically a sequel for Christmas Miracles (of sorts) although I don’t think you really need to have read the first one to understand this one

    Summary

    It was May before the people in Greg's village began to understand that the winter wasn't ending. The snow refused to melt, the air would not warm.

    This is the story of an endless winter, the harsh north wind, and a somewhat cranky sorcerer.

    Summary

    Come out on a date with me. Drinks. G

    It may be a short text, but he agonises over the wording. ‘Come out for a drink with me’ – too open to interpretation. If he’s learned one thing about Mycroft Holmes, it’s that he’ll make almost any assumption other than that someone might actually be attracted to him.
    And anyway, they’ve been for drinks a hundred times: cordial but businesslike discussions of what to do about Sherlock, of how to approach a particular case or hurdle or setback. Thinly-veiled arguments over what right one or the other of them has to intervene in some disastrous move of Sherlock’s; over how best to help him when he relapses. Prickly, difficult times when the elder Holmes is absent and preoccupied; subdued occasions when Greg is so tired he can hardly think.
    In the forty-five minutes it takes Mycroft to reply, Greg hoovers his entire flat.
