    Summary

    Greg Lestrade is in a rut: there's not much in his life that brings any joy these days. If this is a mid-life crisis, he'd rather skip it and retire. Maybe he needs a holiday. Maybe he should chuck it all in and go live on a boat. He knows something needs to change, but what?

    Summary

    “I’m sorry, Sherlock, but I think what you just said is that you’ve been catfishing a murderer online, pretending to be a couple, your brother and I, and now you want us to meet him? A murderer? As a couple!” The last few words are really quite loud, and Rosie makes a startled squeak in the kitchen.

    Sherlock glares at him.

    Greg takes a deep breath. “Sorry,” he says, automatically, then – “No – no! Not – not sorry, because – of all the things, Sherlock, that you have ever done, this is undeniably the most – the most utterly – I –”

    He closes his eyes, fists clenched, and takes several deep breaths.

    “Overlooking many, many other problems with this entire scenario –” he pauses and takes another breath, “– what on Earth makes you think that, as a couple, a detective and a – a – whatever he is –” he gestures wildly at Mycroft – “would put themselves online on a dating site?”

    Summary

    For a long time, I was asked to write a Greg Lestrade story, so I did. However, these stories take on a life of their own and often refuse to stop writing themselves. This is the second half of one such narrative.

    Summary

    Mycroft Holmes was old and tired and had lived half his life mourning a dream that had almost been his. Every year he waited for her and every year she returned if only for a few fleeting moments. Yes, Molly Hooper was dead, but the streets of London would not let her go.
