    Recommended just for the part where Greg says, "Mycroft Holmes. Love of my life and test of my sanity." Because that sums up so much of what I love about these two together.

    What if Greg met Mycroft at Sherlock's wedding, and they hit it off and later moved in together, but Greg didn't know Mycroft was Sherlock's brother? It shouldn't work as well as it does, but this story very much works. A nice portrait of how the two men care for each other.

    Summary

    The idea of Sherlock and Eurus connecting over music, over anything, is terrifying. Mycroft has spent decades watching over Sherlock, talking about their fictional family dog and the myth of the east wind, trying to protect Sherlock from the things he doesn’t remember. He’s worried about Sherlock and stood guard over Eurus, and been worse than useless in the end. He was complicit. While he thought he was juggling both threats, maintaining enough control over the situation to keep everyone safe (mostly Sherlock, but the rest of the world as well), he had allowed the threat to escalate. 

    In which Mycroft is not an easy man to know and an even harder one to look after. Fortunately, Lestrade is diligent and determined, and knows how to pay attention to people. Where family comes with obligations, but it also cares, even when you don't want them around. Where life mostly goes as expected, but sometimes has unanticipated joys.

    A terrific post-series deep-dive into Mycroft's emotions and reactions to Eurus and how he learns to accept when he's wrong, particularly about Lestrade. There are some wonderfully funny (often dry) lines, which is what put this on my list. My favorite exchange is

    “So,” Mummy says, turning her attention to Lestrade, “you work with our Sherlock?”
    “And sleeps with our Mycroft,” Sherlock adds helpfully.

    An original take on just how odd, and traditional, Mycroft courting Lestrade might be. Set during Sherlock's absence, this is a lovely evocation of mood and discovery, with many reasons to be sympathetic for Mycroft. Particularly since Greg knows something he doesn’t.

    Summary

    Prince Sherlock must marry, and his brother is determined to find him the perfect partner before the three nights of the Winter Ball have passed. In Gregory Lestrade, Mycroft thinks he has found Sherlock that perfect partner: a man who is kind, brave, intelligent, and even attractive.

    Very attractive. Very, very attractive.

    This fairy tale AU features a playful Mycroft, dubbing himself the Enchanter, working to transform blacksmith Gregory Lestrade into the perfect husband for Prince Sherlock, only to get caught in his own spell. A lovely spin on Cinderella with a bunch of fun cameos.
