    Summary

    It seemed that Lestrade's salt-and-pepper hair grew in the same on his face as it did on his head. His beard was bristly, patchy, viscerally appealing in a way that had little to do with aesthetics and more to do with masculine sensuality. Mycroft was stood rapt, conjuring up the rough brush of the beard against his lips without having moved an inch. His apprehension dropped away, lost behind a painful stab of want.

     

    Christmas, when he and Lestrade had both been strong-armed into growing beards for a cause, proved to be the turning point for the whole desperate, shattering, uncomfortable scenario.

    Summary

    Sherlock fled London a couple of years after John left him in hospital with nothing but an old walking stick and a half-hearted goodbye.

    Rosie grew up thinking that Sherlock died when he committed suicide in front of her father by jumping from Barts' roof.

    So it's somewhat awkward when they run into each other in a Sussex general store between the loaves of bread and the Mars bars...

    Summary

    "I can't, I don't know how," Remus stuttered as Molly dropped the infant into his arms, who immediately ceased crying and stared up at him with wide eyes.

    "Nonsense," Molly said. "Be a dear and keep him from falling while I feed Ginny."

    "Ba!" Ron giggled, and slapped Remus in the face.

    Molly is the emergency contact for the Order when those listed can no longer be reached. Remus' life finds a different path.
