    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

    The day a puppy finds Mycroft out on the grounds of Musgrave, is the day Mycroft's life changes forever.

    Set when Mycroft is sixteen; he's doing his A-Levels and going to leave home for university next year. He's shy and introverted, usually focusing on just his schoolwork or minding his hurricane little brother. Once he takes responsibility for 'Sherlock's' dog, who bonds strongly to Mycroft, he finds there's more to life than just work - love, care, and fun.

    That's how Mycroft meets Greg, a fellow dog owner. Slowly he learns how to love and be loved by not only a dog, but by the stunningly handsome boy of his dreams.

    Suddenly Mycroft isn't so afraid of going to university anymore, knowing he won't be alone.

    Summary

    They grew up in a rough neighborhood, where an intelligent, gentle boy like Mycroft Holmes would have been savaged if it wasn’t for the fact that his best friend was Greg Lestrade, one of the toughest kids around and one who was devoted to keeping Mycroft safe from anyone who might want to hurt him. That devotion deepened into something very different as the boys aged and, though his heart swelled with pride when Mycroft won a scholarship to a prestigious college, that same heart shattered when Mycroft went away, determined to study theology and forge a life in the church.

    Without Mycroft's steady support and clear sense of right and wrong, however, Greg takes a different path and forges a life in the criminal underworld. After a 'business' deal goes bad, Greg races to the one person he knows he can trust, but have Greg’s choices forever closed the door on their relationship, be it one of friendship or something much, much more? When an unfamiliar car pulls up to the front of Mycroft’s church, that question has a chance to be answered…
