    Summary

    Greg's used to be picked up by an unprepossessing black car to do whatever it is Mycroft Holmes asks with no questions. When the car takes him to Mycroft's house, something is different. He always said he has Mycroft's back, but this could be the situation that forces both of them to admit things they've long buried deep.

    Summary

    Circumstances have rooted Greg Lestrade in the rolling hills of northwest Connecticut to work as a falconer and naturalist. High Point Nature Preserve is a dream - 400 acres of hardwood forest, a dedicated staff, and hawks, owls, and eagles under his care. He can see himself living out the rest of his days there, retiring eventually on the edge of the Preserve that’s helped to make him who he is - along with a tight circle of friends and family.

    Yet, he isn't settled. Some youthful, idealistic part of him longs for adventure and travel. Yearns even more deeply for someone to share it with.

    It seems like those things could be in reach when he meets Mycroft Holmes, an Englishman visiting family in the US. Only one problem: Mycroft leaves for England at the end of the summer.

    Summary

    Sherlock's deduced that John is dating again, even though John hasn't said anything about it. And Sherlock's deductions are always right, aren't they? He wants John to be happy, but the mere thought of losing John and Rosie again devastates him. Can he prove to John that he and Rosie belong at Baker Street with him?

    Or, a fic fueled by a misunderstanding that could have been avoided if either of them would talk about how in love they are with the other.

    Summary

    “Surely my use of the word ‘partner’ was a rather large clue, brother mine?”  Once again, Mycroft’s words are softly delivered but his growing irritation at Sherlock’s distracted attention shows in the minuscule downturn of his mouth. “You go as part of a couple; romantic, of course.”  Mycroft sneers slightly at the concept before continuing.  “You are relatively famous, that should be enough to entice someone into spending time with you.  Surely some pretty young thing will be eager to spend time with the famous Sherlock Holmes and his infamous temperament; it will only be for four days, after all.”  He has chosen his words with care, knowing they will get a rise from his brother and sure enough ….

    “Pretty young thing!”  Sherlock spits, his pale eyes suddenly blazing, full attention finally on his brother. “I don’t want some insipid person fluttering their eyelashes at me and simpering at my every word!  What I want….” Sherlock trails off, aware that he has already said too much.

    “Indeed.”  Mycroft raises an eyebrow and leans forward once more in his chair, hands templed, an unconscious echo of Sherlock’s favoured pose.  “Then ask him.”
