  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

    Greg's life is going along okay. He's a bit lonely, but who isn't? At least his regular coffee place has his order down so he doesn't even need to pay attention anymore. But all that's upended the day he accidentally picks up Gregory's order instead of his own, and it's so good he changes his regular order. Several matchmakers-in-training and a misunderstanding and suddenly, Greg's got himself a new pen pal. Sort of. But it's not a rom-com. Definitely not.

    Summary

    (Royalty/Diplomat AU.) Mycroft Holmes, newly appointed as Her Majesty's Ambassador to the United States, is settling very nicely into Washington. His apartment at the British Embassy is comfortable and pleasingly private... right until the moment when a half-naked prince strolls into his kitchen.

    Prince Gregory is the youngest son of the reigning British monarch. He's staying in the royal flat upstairs, and what he lacks in boundaries, he makes up for in charm and good looks.

    But would a romance with a royal pose a risk to Mycroft's career?

    Summary

    At the end of a shite week in the middle of a rubbish month and wrapping up what would likely be the worst year of his life, Mycroft Holmes summoned him to his club, poured maybe one too many fingers of scotch, patted his knee, and shook his hand before sending him home in a posh car.

    He was done for.
