    Summary

    Detective Inspector Greg Lestrade has always known that his job came with the risk of danger; he was prepared for knives, guns, and belligerent drunks, but he never saw being taken hostage by violent members of a Mexican drug cartel coming. His only hope of being saved is that one of his closest friends is a consulting detective and another is the "minor" wizard-behind-the-machine, Mycroft Holmes. If "friend" is really the right word for what Mycroft is to him...God, he'd like to live to find out.

    Summary

    "All lives end... all hearts are broken."

    Mycroft Holmes never needed a reason to loathe Christmas - but getting dumped by the love of his life certainly did the trick. It's been a year since Mycroft lost the man he adored, and with Christmas Eve fast approaching, he's counting down the hours until all this festive lunacy is over.

    Sadly for Mycroft, fate has other plans.

    It's going to take three ghosts to show him the error of his ways. But can he make amends in time? Or will he prove to himself, once and for all, that caring is not an advantage?

    Summary

    "Don't know if you're doing anything right now, but there's a few of us at Walker's on Craig's Court. Thought you might want to come down for a drink."

    "Why would you think that?" Mycroft says disbelievingly.

    "Because you qualify as a member of the sad divorced bastards club," Greg says as Anderson returns from the bar, and sets two glasses on the table. Greg knows how it feels to find yourself living alone again. How empty a flat can feel, and how hard it can be to remember who you are without that other person. He knows how loneliness can creep in. "Might as well attend a meeting."
