    Summary

    Gregory Lestrade is extremely good at his job. The last thing he needs is a ridiculous civil servant berk in a three-piece-suit telling him what he should and should not be doing.

    Summary

    It seemed that Lestrade's salt-and-pepper hair grew in the same on his face as it did on his head. His beard was bristly, patchy, viscerally appealing in a way that had little to do with aesthetics and more to do with masculine sensuality. Mycroft was stood rapt, conjuring up the rough brush of the beard against his lips without having moved an inch. His apprehension dropped away, lost behind a painful stab of want.

    Christmas, when he and Lestrade had both been strong-armed into growing beards for a cause, proved to be the turning point for the whole desperate scenario.

    Summary

    He’s just one click away…

    Mycroft Holmes has found the perfect lover – online. When the sexy words of ‘Sterling’ fly across the computer screen, he can seduce him in a heartbeat. The hot, detailed images of them together feed his sexual fantasies. The best part? Mycroft doesn’t have to make a commitment to ‘Sterling’. No fuss, no muss. He can switch him off at any time. So why is he feeling unsatisfied?

    Gregory Lestrade, known only to his internet romance as ‘Sterling’, is ready for the next step – to meet in person. He wants to make it real with the man whom he only knows as ‘Mallory’. Their virtual relationship has left him in a constantly aroused state, hungry for a taste of his lips and the touch of his skin. He wants to make love – all night long – to the man who’s captured his heart sight unseen.

    Except, once 'Mallory' and ‘Sterling’ meet face-to-face, both are surprised at the outcome…

    Summary

    Greg is an early-morning runner. Mycroft is an early riser who happens to live on Greg's running route. Hilarity ensues.

    Written for MystradeDoodles' prompt: "Greg is a runner. Rom-com." Mycroft/Lestrade.

    Vaguely suggestive in places, but that's it. (Really!)

    Summary

    Embarrassing as it is -- considering Lestrade actually is a decently intelligent and aware person despite what Sherlock insinuates at least twice a week -- he very simply does not notice someone standing in his doorway until the man clears his throat. "Detective Inspector Lestrade?" the man asks as though he already knows the answer.

    "It's the name on the desk."

    The man's mouth settles with a hint of a smile. It's a bit obnoxious really, the unconscious condescension he exudes; like he knows all the answers to questions Lestrade can't even begin to think of asking. "I'm here about Sherlock Holmes."

    Summary

    “So I suppose you wear that ring for another reason, then.”
    Mycroft thinks ‘I wear it because it’s easier than an outright lie’, ‘it symbolises everything I’m not allowed to want’ or ‘it’s part of the disguise’ would likely ruin the companionable mood that’s taken months of effort to build between the two of them, so he opts for the simple and dismissive response.
    “Yes.”

    Or, in which Mycroft wishes that people would ask questions with simple answers, but with a certain Detective Inspector, the answer is never that easy. Except for when it is.

    "I should let you know that MI6 is not in the habit of ceding to terrorists," Q tells him with chilly poise. "But it is after hours, and this is at least a halfway decent kidnapping."
    Bond's answering hum of amusement resonates and mingles with the sound of the revving engine.

    Steve walked into his apartment to find Tony sitting on his kitchen counter, cross-legged, facing the door and flicking his thumbs against the screen of his futuristic phone in a way that meant he was either playing a game or hacking the security of some undoubtedly highly dangerous and deeply hostile organization.

    "Hi, Honey!" Tony trilled without looking up. "Welcome back!"

     

    Steve comes home.
