    Summary

    Fluff. I often let Lestrade take the emotional lead--even if he's not the experienced player on the gay team, he seems likely to be the more experienced player in total, and by far the more at ease with romance. But there are good reasons to play it the other way around a bit. So this story mixes it up a little. Mycroft may not be a pillar of swaggering male confidence, but he's definitely a bit more together about this than Lestrade...poor behbehs.

    Summary

    This is more or less a sequel to Control, though it's not an immediate sequel. Lestrade's POV, includes memories, focuses on the moment when, Lestrade injured, his relationship with Mycroft is revealed to John, and then Sherlock. But they're more or less secondary--the trigger, but not the gunshot.

    Hope you enjoy. This one's sappy.

    “I’ll never be able to un-see it,” Mycroft whispered. “I’ll never be able to un-hear it. Sherlock is going on, pretending as best as he can like it never happened, but I can’t. I’m not…I’m not okay, Gregory, I’m not.”

    The aeroplane flew over the red-brick house in Hanbury Street with the blue door and silver knocker. The unexpected sound caused one man to look up from his newspaper for the first time in an hour. The other man frowned and turned up the volume on the wireless.

    Summary

    Workaholic Mycroft realizes he's lonely, and a chance encounter with Greg Lestrade makes him realize he wants more in his life. Greg, who also happens to be lonely, certainly isn't opposed to the idea of helping him unwind... Focus on Mystrade. I OWN NOTHING.

    Gifted to the lovely jaimistoryteller (jaimi-or-jaemi over on FF.net) because sadness happens, but there are always reasons to smile.

    Summary

    Another exercise. The goal in this was to work a trope backward from my own norms, and definitely from usual fic assumptions. In this case I'm attempting to play with warm and cool, reserve and emotional intimacy, and play them from a very different POV and expectation. I love to ask myself questions about how a character's facade differs from his or her core traits--how impressions differ from reality. How what you see can be conditioned by surface illusions.

    Within that, I just wanted to try a very different moment of intimacy between Mycroft and Lestrade. See if you like.

    The title is taken from Joni Mitchell's song of the same name. The two are thematically related, if not in lockstep with each other.

    Summary

    Lestrade is confined to bed with a broken ankle and John comes to Mycroft’s to help care for him. Sherlock, still under observation from his injuries in the explosion, comes along to help. Sherlock isn’t really much help, but he sure likes Mycroft’s toys.

    Summary

    Lestrade helps John save Mycroft and Sherlock from a drug lord, and inadvertently ignites a spark that had, previously, been smoldering. What results is inexplicable in the most delightful way... Also, I give you Johnlock on the side. I OWN NOTHING. Also, thank you to the lovely jaimi-or-jaemi, without whom this work would not exist.
