    Summary

    After a life-changing event, Greg Lestrade retires from Scotland Yard and moves to a small market town on the south coast, far away from the stresses of London, policing and Sherlock Holmes. Finally free to pursue his life as an artist the rumour that nearby Musgrave Hall has a now-permanent resident doesn't bother Greg at all. Not until the day Mycroft Holmes walks into his art supplies shop and turns Greg's world upside down again, proving that age is just a number and miracles, sometimes, really do happen

    Summary

    Sex therapy was meant to put Greg Lestrade's marriage back together, not test it to the limits. Life is rarely simple though. In the ashes of the past, good new things can finally bloom and add some colour to Greg's world.

    Unfortunately, not everyone is convinced those good new things are good... and nor is the past quite ready to let Greg go.

    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.
