Work Text:

“Come with us.”

“I can’t.”

“Why the hell not?”

“Do you have any idea how much work I do here?”

“Earth’s been there long before you, and it’ll still be here long after you.”

“I can’t.”

“Oh, that’s rich. Fine. Stay.”

“Wait! Wait. I-”

“Greg, please.”

“Come along or stay here- either way, I’m going.”


“Evening, Mycroft.”
