    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...

    Summary

    After everything, comes a time of quiet. There's cases, and Baker Street, and really, life is good. It gives John time to work through something he's been struggling with.

    OR: The one where I surprise myself by writing Johnlock. And like, quite a lot of it.

    Summary

    There is an oft-cited experiment discussed in classrooms and cocktail parties alike, a convenient analogy when one endeavors to make a point about not noticing the obvious until it is inevitable. Simply, if you place a frog on a hot plate, it will jump off immediately, but if you put that frog on a cool plate and turn up the heat slowly, slowly, it will simply burn.

    Or: How these two idiots melt together, finally.

    Summary

    "You fear becoming the plaything of a powerful man."

    Greg Lestrade might have risen to the rank of Detective Inspector, but he's still just an East End boy at heart. That's why this arrangement with Mycroft Holmes, power incarnate, is starting to feel so weird—if only Mycroft weren't so hard to resist.

    When family tragedy and a murder in the East End start stirring up the shadows of the past, Greg could lose the chance at happiness he's waited twenty years for.

    But is there hope for two souls from such very different worlds?
