    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.

    Summary

    “Daddy, I have something for you!” Mariko says, all heart-shaped beaming smile that creases little dips into one of her chubby cheeks. Yuuri reaches out to push the hair that is clinging to her cheek with the sea water back behind her ear.

    “Oh, what is it?” he asks, giving her a little smile.

    “Tada!” Mariko says, opening her hands to reveal a small perfectly shaped little shell. “I found it when I was burying Beka!”

    (Or: local power couple continue loving each other and both their children a lot, but are getting real tired of waiting for best kazakh boy to become their son-in-law officially.)

    Summary

    Here’s how Sam Wilson can spend his one week off: Sleeping on Steve’s couch, worrying about his mother, replacing a roof in the Florida heat, being envious of Clint Barton’s beautiful life, and putting up with Bucky Barnes’ drinking, swearing, pranking, and aggressive pig-headedness.
    Or, he could just stay home.
    Sam is desperate enough that he decides to go with Option #1.

    Summary

    An arm is thrown around Tenzō’s shoulders. “Most shinobi your age retire, Kakashi.”

    “Pot-kettle,” replies Kakashi, with a defiant prod at his side. “Besides, I am retired. Why else would I be lazing around hot springs?”

    “To attract trouble,” says Tenzō, entirely serious.

    Summary

    Near death experiences tend to make a guy re-evaluate his life, even when that guy is an infamous Ravager captain. After the Ego incident, Yondu needs a getaway. His retirement asteroid becomes a peaceful home base for the Guardians: no Stakar, no space battles, nothing to worry about but Yondu's cabbage crop and the occasional rampaging bilgesnipe.

    But Kraglin – haunted by nightmares, keeper of secrets, in charge of his captain's legacy – has started to crack at the seams.

    It'd be real nice if somebody noticed.
