  1. Summary

    Jack Harkness is a man with a long, storied past. Only a fraction of it is 'known', but so much more of it has shaped him. These are the stories that have not been told, the impacts seen but kept hidden.

    This is the tale of a man granted eternity, and it is a cautionary one, children. There is a reason everything comes to an end. Here there is no Happily Ever After ...

    Summary

    It was entirely possible that there existed, in this world, more than one Greg Lestrade. Multiple versions of the man that endeavored to leave Mycroft wrong footed every time he met with him...

    Mycroft Holmes has made it his life's work to wrangle his brother, when he isn't up to his eyes in his career. So when he meets a precipitously grey Detective Sergeant willing to keep a weathered eye, Mycroft's interest is piqued... in more ways than one.

    Summary

    Crowley was still as stone beside him. His ears were cherry-red. “So...if we pretend we’re in a relationship, we’ll be safe.”

    “I believe so.”

    “And that would, that would involve, what?” he spoke hesitantly, softly. “Holding your hand, telling you that you mean a lot to me, kissing you for them to see?”

    Two great hands were constricting Aziraphale’s lungs. He fought back an undignified wheeze. “Yes, I think so.”

    “I can do that,” he croaked.
    ~
    In a panic, Aziraphale tells the archangels he survived hellfire due to his soul mixing with Crowley's because they're in a romantic and sexual relationship. They want him to prove it. Cue a fake relationship.

    Summary

    “It’s… a means to an end,”  Mycroft explained, picking up the phone. “Just one meeting, and I will have gotten this over with. I can move on, and what would be the harm in that?”

     

     

     

    Mycroft Holmes' life isn't going according to plan, and there is little he can do about it. His career is a mess, his house is a shrine, and he can't even manage to get laid. In fact, he's never quite figured that last thing out. Maybe it's time. Perhaps, if he could work out how to have a relationship, he could work out the rest.

    Enter Greg Lestrade, who comes highly recommended by Mycroft's shark-like coworker and sometimes-friend, Alicia. Mycroft, under the impression he is going to see a counselor, is shocked to realize he has been misled.

    He should back out. He should never think of this again. He should, but...

    Just... just wonderful. I connected so much with basically-Demi Mycroft. The feels are off the chart. 💙

    Summary

    Sitting in a safe house that looks like an office building on its outside, and more like a palace from the inside, Greg feels very keenly that this entire situation stems directly from a phone call which happened over a decade ago.

    *

    Greg and Mycroft are caught in a minor explosion. Unfortunately, said explosion takes place in a highly classified government bio research lab. To err on the safe side, they'll need to spend two weeks together in isolation. What could possibly happen next?

    Summary

    “But—“ Greg couldn’t seem to make himself pull his wrist out of that long-fingered grasp. “But wait, what’s your— Um. What’s your name?”

    For this he got a slightly mocking smile. “Does it matter?”

    “Well, yeah?”

    “Fine. It’s Mycroft. You?”

    “Greg.”

    “Fantastic,” Mycroft drawled. “Now we’re friends. Come on.”
