  2. Summary

    A world where the people of Sherlock's universe sort of, kind of, sometimes have ESP along the lines of the Talents in Anne McCaffrey's "Pegasus" series. Kind of.

    If you want to play in this series, I'm okay with that. Let me know and I'll add you as a co-author.

    Summary

    [Mystrade Bodyguard AU]

    Drago Kovácic is dead. Whoever killed him left no trace - and Mycroft's superiors are convinced he's next in line. The safest option is to ramp up Mycroft's security until the threat is over, with a dedicated bodyguard to accompany him at all times - whether he likes it or not.

    The arrival into Mycroft's life of handsome security professional Greg Lestrade rather changes things. Greg is charming, easy-going and gorgeous, and Mycroft soon has a very different problem on his hands. Will their professional relationship stay professional? Will Greg be able to keep Mycroft safe? And will the shadows of the past prove too much for them to handle?

    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?”

    Summary

    They stood face to face in the middle of a clearing. The dim light of the moon barely allowed Sherlock to see the glassy terror in John’s eyes and the sweat that glistened off his forehead. His nose was bleeding again, blood dripping in a slow stream from his right nostril.

    They were both gasping for air, John’s eyes locked on Sherlock’s. There was no recognition there, just wild animal fear.

    Time stood still for an eternal few seconds, and Sherlock took a shaky breath. “John—”

    Spell broken, John spun and bolted back into the woods.

    Still heaving for air, Sherlock took off after him.

    Summary

    “I love you.”

    Sherlock sees the words hit John with almost physical force. He reels back a little, jaw twitching and eyes filling.

    “I love you,” he repeats, a little softer, a little more gentle, as earnest as he possibly can. Because they’ve been teetering on the brink of this thing for years, and it had become painfully obvious over the last few months that they were at a tipping point. This had to happen. Now it has. Now they can see where they end up.

    The tears in John’s eyes spill over, and he wipes at them angrily. “Do you even know what that means?”

    Summary

    John knew his routines were a bit too subtle for the crowd, well as subtle as stripping could be. That was why he was struggling to earn his cut at the club. He knew he needed to start booking private dances to keep his job, and pay his rent. Luckily for John, his first private dance is booked by Sherlock Holmes, a man who seems to appreciate subtlety and the way chains look against John’s skin.

    *This is completed and chapter two will be posted in a week*
