    Summary

    Greg should have known better than to say the phrase ‘I’ll owe you one,’ to Sherlock Holmes. This was his own fault, really. After four years, he really ought to have learned by now. But Greg had been tired and desperate and Sherlock had been acting like a stroppy child. The words had slipped out and then Greg had immediately forgotten them. 

    -

    In which Greg agrees to pose as Sherlock's boyfriend at Christmas, finally meets the invisible Mycroft Holmes, catches feelings, and has a very happy holiday indeed.

    Summary

    Circumstances have rooted Greg Lestrade in the rolling hills of northwest Connecticut to work as a falconer and naturalist. High Point Nature Preserve is a dream - 400 acres of hardwood forest, a dedicated staff, and hawks, owls, and eagles under his care. He can see himself living out the rest of his days there, retiring eventually on the edge of the Preserve that’s helped to make him who he is - along with a tight circle of friends and family.

    Yet, he isn't settled. Some youthful, idealistic part of him longs for adventure and travel. Yearns even more deeply for someone to share it with.

    It seems like those things could be in reach when he meets Mycroft Holmes, an Englishman visiting family in the US. Only one problem: Mycroft leaves for England at the end of the summer.

    Summary

    This is a Christmas love story:

    Greg Lestrade loved Christmas. He loved winter, the bite in the air, the flurries and occasional actual snow, the colorful lights, the sometimes loud decorations, the songs, the singing, the parties, the people, the presents, the surprises, the food and the drink, and the genuine good cheer...

    Mycroft Holmes hated Christmas. He hated the winter, the cold actually made his knee and hip ache - though that was not something others were ever to know - the tiny crystals of frozen death that fell from the sky to disrupt the proper function of transportation were terrible, the blinking lights and loud noises brought about his migraines, the abysmal excuse for what passed as music - not to mention the people singing it, dear Lord - the ever increasing social obligations and nonstop political kowtowing, the people, the sheer volume of people...
