    The 2024-25 season brings changes to the Penguins. Sid and Jamie are both negotiating new contracts. Injuries, however, make Sid take stock of his career and what he wants for his future. Once upon a time, he thought he'd play hockey forever, but that was before Jamie and Kylie entered his life. Now he has to think about more than just himself. They say that when it's time, you'll know. Sid knows. Change is inevitable and this is a season that will bring big changes for Jamie and Sid, their hockey, and their futures.
    This is the season prior to the Prologue & Epilogue of All of Me Loves All of You.

    ...

    Summary

    In the episode "The Lying Detective" we saw how much Culverton Smith's statement affected DI Greg Lestrade. It was the final straw upon which he decided it was time to retire. Leaving London behind he settles down in a remote part of Wales. Almost three years later he's built himself a life that makes him happy. The only thing missing is another person to share his life with. This is when life drops a man in his lap who he had considered a friend and perhaps even more before he had left London.

    The story got a T rating so far. That might change later. I'm going to add tags as the story evolves.

    It might start a bit sad but I promise it's going to get better quickly and you can expect some fluff and a happy end.

    Special thanks go to @MapleleafCameo for taking the time to beta this story.
