  1. Summary

    Jack Harkness is a man with a long, storied past. Only a fraction of it is 'known', but so much more of it has shaped him. These are the stories that have not been told, the impacts seen but kept hidden.

    Summary

    “It’s… a means to an end,”  Mycroft explained, picking up the phone. “Just one meeting, and I will have gotten this over with. I can move on, and what would be the harm in that?”

     

     

     

    Mycroft Holmes' life isn't going according to plan, and there is little he can do about it. His career is a mess, his house is a shrine, and he can't even manage to get laid. In fact, he's never quite figured that last thing out. Maybe it's time. Perhaps, if he could work out how to have a relationship, he could work out the rest.

    Enter Greg Lestrade, who comes highly recommended by Mycroft's shark-like coworker and sometimes-friend, Alicia. Mycroft, under the impression he is going to see a counselor, is shocked to realize he has been misled.

    Summary

    Sitting in a safe house that looks like an office building on its outside, and more like a palace from the inside, Greg feels very keenly that this entire situation stems directly from a phone call which happened over a decade ago.

    *

    Greg and Mycroft are caught in a minor explosion. Unfortunately, said explosion takes place in a highly classified government bio research lab. To err on the safe side, they'll need to spend two weeks together in isolation. What could possibly happen next?

    Summary

    “But—“ Greg couldn’t seem to make himself pull his wrist out of that long-fingered grasp. “But wait, what’s your— Um. What’s your name?”

    For this he got a slightly mocking smile. “Does it matter?”

    “Well, yeah?”

    “Fine. It’s Mycroft. You?”

    “Greg.”

    “Fantastic,” Mycroft drawled. “Now we’re friends. Come on.”

    Summary

    Greg notices the kid watching him, and for a moment he fantasizes about watching back, doing the old once-over and eyebrow quirk. Do people still cruise like that?

    AU with a younger Mycroft, who can't stop watching the silver fox at the pub.
