    Summary

    When Greg Lestrade met Mycroft Holmes for the first time he wasn't quite sure what to make of him. But nine years down the line, he could never have dreamed that this was where they were going to end up.

    AKA: A slow-burn Mystrade, starting in 2005 and covering all three seasons of Sherlock.

    As of 19/04/2016, I am going through this fic and reformatting it, so if you find some inconsistencies in formatting, that's why. I'm also trying to remove the typos and the unnecessary words and clunky phrases. It's a long story and it'll be a long process, so your patience is very much appreciated.

    Summary

    John knows the human body intimately. He’s had plenty of opportunity for study as a doctor, soldier, and lover. There’s one particular body, however, he knows very little about. When Sherlock launches himself head-first into a new obsession and they get sent on a case in an unlikely location, the pair discovers each other’s bodies with confusing yet delightful (and sometimes hilarious) results.

    Summary

    Sherlock takes a remarkably early retirement at 47, and convinces John that a change of pace would do them both good. They buy an old cottage on the South Downs, and exchange their nonstop life in Baker Street for quiet contemplation, bee studies, and book writing.

    They might go completely insane, but sometimes it takes stepping outside of the life you're living to find the life you want.

    Sherlock takes one last look out to the horizon, mouth downturned and brow furrowed, before seeming to shake himself and catching up to John with a few long-legged strides. John turns back toward the path cut into the cliffs, climbing steadily toward the rolling downs already green and lush in the weak April warmth.

    They reach the top and Sherlock strikes toward the west, back to where their hired Land Rover sits a mile away in a public carpark. John falls into step beside him and takes a deep breath.

     

    “I expected a case,” he starts. “A bit chilly for a walk, really, so. D’you mind telling me what we’re doing out here?”
    Sherlock doesn’t even pause, simply tucks his head down against the wind and continues walking.

    “I’m retiring,” he says simply.
