    Summary

    Mycroft spent most of his life building his empire for one purpose; to keep Sherlock safe. But it wasn't enough, and with everything crumbling around him he makes a plan. It will work. He will be gone, Sherlock will be safe, and there will be minimal collateral damage.

    Then Gregory Lestrade gets himself involved, and even that one last plan begins to unravel.

    Summary

    I started this story as an original m/m work but it kept stalling due to a) the characters not being the right gender for the fit of the plot and b) I really wanted to write an 'opposite' story to the one I wrote in 'A Case Of Bad Diction', where the Mystrade is set in modern times but with the characters completely shuffled and changed into an original shape. There are many published authors who have taken their love of Doyle's work and used it more as a writing prompt than a place of canonical severity (Sherlock Holmes vs. The Martians, anyone?). So...Here we are!

    Mycroft Holmes, professional thief, is annoyed by her girlfriend's distraction over a set of human luggage sitting in a St. Mary's morgue. That said luggage was being used to mule hard drugs into London by the Crown Cartel is an added irritation. All Mycroft really wants is for DI Grace Lestrade to play house with her and revel in her Belgravia estate and all its pretty baubles, but even this is marred by her post-modernist neighbours with their chrome and glass monstrosity next door. Worse still, they are neglecting their borzoi. Who knew dog thieving and corpses stuffed with drugs would go hand in hand?

    Summary

    "You fear becoming the plaything of a powerful man."

    Greg Lestrade might have risen to the rank of Detective Inspector, but he's still just an East End boy at heart. That's why this arrangement with Mycroft Holmes, power incarnate, is starting to feel so weird—if only Mycroft weren't so hard to resist.

    When family tragedy and a murder in the East End start stirring up the shadows of the past, Greg could lose the chance at happiness he's waited twenty years for.

    But is there hope for two souls from such very different worlds?
