    Summary

    A very upscale bar/private club needs a bartender and scruffy, punky Greg Lestrade is certain he has the right skills (and needs the job), so walks in to apply in person. He didn't realize that someone else he knew works there, also. Though... 'knew' probably isn't the proper term for a one-night stand where you didn't even learn their name during the fun...

    It had been, Molly Hooper would reflect in later years, far worse than the “not a good day” she’d tried to make it out to be.

    Summary

    It was a marriage of convenience. In a time when Greg Lestrade, as the second born son, was more than likely to be parcelled off in an arranged marriage with a perfect stranger, the offer of security and independence wasn’t one he could turn down. Maybe slightly lacking in romance, Mycroft’s proposal was simple and pragmatic. Engagement: short. Marriage: mutually beneficial.

    Marriage of convenience is my favourite trope.

    Summary

    The moon shone brightly on the garden, the colours of the roses now muted blue-greys like pebbles along the shore. A shiver ran down his spine as the hairs on his neck tingled. 

    “Hello?” he said. Looked to the left and the right. Not a soul. “Who’s there?” His grip on the umbrella handle was clammy.

    A foghorn bellowed in the distance. Clouds crept over the moon’s face, casting long, gauzy shadows over the garden.

    Mycroft stepped back, and shut the door. He tried to quell the racing of his heart as he stood there, listening. 

    “I’ve been waiting,” the man said, his voice as rough as waves hitting the rocks.
