  2. Summary

    May every winter change to spring aka Spring Series

    This series contains one multi-chapter story featuring percilot (plus a bit of merlahad) and a few additional one-shots that could be seen as flashbacks. Those shorter stories are all snippets from Percy's and James' relationship and life with Roxy before V-Day. Some of them are even referred to in the main story Once in a Lifetime (check the notes of every one-shot/chapter for more information).

    "Behold, we know not anything;
    I can but trust that good shall fall
    At last – far off – at last to all,
    And every winter change to spring."
    - Alfred Lord Tennyson ("In Memoriam")

    Summary

    Mycroft Holmes suffers a great loss. He longs for something he never really had. He grieves for a person he didn't really know.

    But someone else has suffered a loss far greater than his.

    Mycroft is faced with a situation that's out of his control, and his usual self-assured calm is shattered. He's forced to trust the people around him, because he knows he can't trust himself.

    Summary

    On Christmas Eve, Greg Lestrade accidentally swipes right on Mycroft Holmes.
    It doesn't matter though, does it? Because he won't see unless he swipes right too, and there's no way - there's no way -
    The thing about Christmas, though, is that unexpected things happen.

    Summary

    cra·que·lure
    /kraˈklo͝or,ˈkrakˌlo͝or/
    noun
    a network of fine cracks in the paint or varnish of a painting.

    Mycroft Holmes had everything in hand: a powerful position in civil service to the Crown with the ability to affect politics across the globe, an impeccable taste in modern luxuries, and an iron-clad philosophy on life and how one should live it.

    He didn't expect it to shatter around him in a series of events facilitated by his siblings.

    This is the story of his rebirth.
