    Summary

    Thirteen years on from their wedding day, Mycroft Holmes lives an entirely different life. He's devoted to his children, writing a book, and happy spending his days with his and Greg's youngest son. Mycroft reflects on how close he came to losing it all, as he plans to surprise his husband for lunch at work.
    Greg knows he's not as smart as his genius husband...but he's capable of learning. And one thing he's definitely learned over the years is that his husband means everything to him, and that family is something we build and protect.

    Summary

    It’s a lot like leafing through pages in a large picture book, or watching life being lived on the other side of a window. The glass is clear, but still a barrier. Objects are out of reach, though the acts that unfold can tug at your heart or spark a forest fire of rage. Or encourage a person to engender a certain numbness of feeling. 

    Mycroft Holmes lives a quiet, steady life. He works. He paints. He takes walks. It’s what he does to ignore the flurry of partnering around him. Whether it’s the biological drive to mash two bodies together, or the religious dictum of the salvation in finding one’s Devotee, it’s not for him. It won't ever be for him.

    Until the day he meets a blind man in the park.

    The world will never be the same.

    Summary

    This is a Christmas love story:

    Greg Lestrade loved Christmas. He loved winter, the bite in the air, the flurries and occasional actual snow, the colorful lights, the sometimes loud decorations, the songs, the singing, the parties, the people, the presents, the surprises, the food and the drink, and the genuine good cheer...

    Mycroft Holmes hated Christmas. He hated the winter, the cold actually made his knee and hip ache - though that was not something others were ever to know - the tiny crystals of frozen death that fell from the sky to disrupt the proper function of transportation were terrible, the blinking lights and loud noises brought about his migraines, the abysmal excuse for what passed as music - not to mention the people singing it, dear Lord - the ever increasing social obligations and nonstop political kowtowing, the people, the sheer volume of people...
