    Summary

    This is a Christmas love story:

    Greg Lestrade loved Christmas. He loved winter, the bite in the air, the flurries and occasional actual snow, the colorful lights, the sometimes loud decorations, the songs, the singing, the parties, the people, the presents, the surprises, the food and the drink, and the genuine good cheer...

    Mycroft Holmes hated Christmas. He hated the winter, the cold actually made his knee and hip ache - though that was not something others were ever to know - the tiny crystals of frozen death that fell from the sky to disrupt the proper function of transportation were terrible, the blinking lights and loud noises brought about his migraines, the abysmal excuse for what passed as music - not to mention the people singing it, dear Lord - the ever increasing social obligations and nonstop political kowtowing, the people, the sheer volume of people...

    Summary

    Greg Lestrade has been carrying a torch for Mycroft Holmes for years. Between cases and the petty dramas of life, he can mostly keep it at bay, flickering on a low burn in the back of his mind.

    However, after he's pulled into a search and rescue operation for the man, he finds himself thrust into an unexpected role. He's trying to be respectful - and careful - but Mycroft Holmes is a force to be reckoned with, and the torch is burning brighter than ever.

    Summary

    Summary

    “We’re not mates, Cora,” he insists. “I mean look at him-“

    “Ouch,” the kid says, no longer pushing that shit eating grin.

    “He’s- he’s,” Derek tries, at a loss of how to explain why this can’t be possible. Why it shouldn’t be possible.

     

    Or the one where Derek gets attacked by hunters, ends up with amnesia and forgets Stiles is his mate

    Bookmarker's Notes

    One of the first fics I read in this fandom. Also one of the best. So well written, I remembered most of the plot...15 years later.
