    Summary

    “Surely my use of the word ‘partner’ was a rather large clue, brother mine?”  Once again, Mycroft’s words are softly delivered but his growing irritation at Sherlock’s distracted attention shows in the minuscule downturn of his mouth. “You go as part of a couple; romantic, of course.”  Mycroft sneers slightly at the concept before continuing.  “You are relatively famous, that should be enough to entice someone into spending time with you.  Surely some pretty young thing will be eager to spend time with the famous Sherlock Holmes and his infamous temperament; it will only be for four days, after all.”  He has chosen his words with care, knowing they will get a rise from his brother and sure enough ….

    “Pretty young thing!”  Sherlock spits, his pale eyes suddenly blazing, full attention finally on his brother. “I don’t want some insipid person fluttering their eyelashes at me and simpering at my every word!  What I want….” Sherlock trails off, aware that he has already said too much.

    “Indeed.”  Mycroft raises an eyebrow and leans forward once more in his chair, hands templed, an unconscious echo of Sherlock’s favoured pose.  “Then ask him.”

    Thanks in part to his ugly divorce, Gregory Lestrade is saddled with what turns out to be a badly botched case. So, he calls in Sherlock to investigate. Unfortunately, things start to get a little hinky when Mycroft gets involved. In hindsight, Greg probably should've known working with the Holmes brothers would eventually derail his entire life.

    A slow-burn Mystrade with background Johnlock.

    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.
