    Summary

    Detective Inspector Greg Lestrade has always known that his job came with the risk of danger; he was prepared for knives, guns, and belligerent drunks, but he never saw being taken hostage by violent members of a Mexican drug cartel coming. His only hope of being saved is that one of his closest friends is a consulting detective and another is the "minor" wizard-behind-the-machine, Mycroft Holmes. If "friend" is really the right word for what Mycroft is to him...God, he'd like to live to find out.

    Summary

    “I’m sorry, Sherlock, but I think what you just said is that you’ve been catfishing a murderer online, pretending to be a couple, your brother and I, and now you want us to meet him? A murderer? As a couple!” The last few words are really quite loud, and Rosie makes a startled squeak in the kitchen.

    Sherlock glares at him.

    Greg takes a deep breath. “Sorry,” he says, automatically, then – “No – no! Not – not sorry, because – of all the things, Sherlock, that you have ever done, this is undeniably the most – the most utterly – I –”

    He closes his eyes, fists clenched, and takes several deep breaths.

    “Overlooking many, many other problems with this entire scenario –” he pauses and takes another breath, “– what on Earth makes you think that, as a couple, a detective and a – a – whatever he is –” he gestures wildly at Mycroft – “would put themselves online on a dating site?”
