    Summary

    Greg's life is going along okay. He's a bit lonely, but who isn't? At least his regular coffee place has his order down so he doesn't even need to pay attention anymore. But all that's upended the day he accidentally picks up Gregory's order instead of his own, and it's so good he changes his regular order. Several matchmakers-in-training and a misunderstanding and suddenly, Greg's got himself a new pen pal. Sort of. But it's not a rom-com. Definitely not.

    Summary

    I would not wish any companion in the world but you.
    (William Shakespeare, The Tempest, Act III, Scene 1)

     

    My name is Greg Lestrade, and this is how it took all but four days to turn my life upside down.
    It started something like this:
    'Make sure he's looked after. He's not as strong as he thinks he is.'
    'Yeah, I'll take care of it.'
    It's funny, isn't it, how a throw-away reply can change your life around but you won't hear me complain. My life has become very good indeed, and I guess I have Sherlock Holmes to thank for that.

    Summary

    When Mycroft finally finds out what Gregory Lestrade's doing to support himself post-Reichenbach, he tells himself it's only professional interest. He will need to log into SilverFox to offer the surreptitious financial support he feels is appropriate after his brother essentially ruined Gregory's life. Surprisingly enough, he finds himself unable to resist, and the line between professional and personal interest blurs almost immediately.
