    Summary

    He had just been learning the shape of his life after divorce when this relationship with Mycroft came along. And now a feeling of change hung about the corners of his mind like a spectre, unwilling or unable to let him go, and the sand under his feet always seemed to be shifting, shifting. Greg needed something solid to lean on.

    They'd fought their battles, and reached a measure of peace. But it was still going to take a little time to bring everything into accord.

    Summary

    Things were good, all told. Weren’t they? He had a job he was good at, a modest flat, a fantastic daughter who worried about him a bit too much for comfort, an ex he could at least speak with without it devolving into shouting and tears, and his car was in decent repair. On paper he was doing just fine. So why did he feel so…at a loss?

    Furthermore, Greg and Mycroft weren't actually dating. Mycroft was just a casual shag. This was an important thing to remember.

    Summary

    It seemed that Lestrade's salt-and-pepper hair grew in the same on his face as it did on his head. His beard was bristly, patchy, viscerally appealing in a way that had little to do with aesthetics and more to do with masculine sensuality. Mycroft was stood rapt, conjuring up the rough brush of the beard against his lips without having moved an inch. His apprehension dropped away, lost behind a painful stab of want.

     

    Christmas, when he and Lestrade had both been strong-armed into growing beards for a cause, proved to be the turning point for the whole desperate, shattering, uncomfortable scenario.

    Summary

    Sex therapy was meant to put Greg Lestrade's marriage back together, not test it to the limits. Life is rarely simple though. In the ashes of the past, good new things can finally bloom and add some colour to Greg's world.

    Unfortunately, not everyone is convinced those good new things are good... and nor is the past quite ready to let Greg go.

    Summary

    [Mystrade Bodyguard AU]

    Drago Kovácic is dead. Whoever killed him left no trace and Mycroft's superiors are convinced he's next in line. The safest option is to ramp up Mycroft's security until the threat is over, with a dedicated bodyguard to accompany him at all times—whether he likes it or not.

    The arrival into Mycroft's life of handsome security professional Greg Lestrade rather changes things. Greg is charming, easy-going and gorgeous—and Mycroft soon has a very different problem on his hands. Will their professional relationship stay professional? Will Greg be able to keep Mycroft safe? And will the shadows of the past prove too much for them to handle?
