    Summary

    For seven years, Mycroft Holmes has kept a respectful distance from the one man who truly matters to him: Greg Lestrade. But when Mycroft finds himself in attendance at a Halloween party at Scotland Yard, he encounters a sight which might just push his restraint to the limit.

    Divorce wasn't easy for Greg. He's now single again and hoping to mingle, but there's only one person who's really on his mind. The chance to finally spend some time with Mycroft is a bit of a miracle - if only he hadn't picked this stupid costume...

    Summary

    No idea where this came from. It's WAY AU--not just wings, not just Alpha and Omega, not just sexual fluidity for real and for keepsies, but all of it tossed together in an SF setting that makes sufficient sense to me. I'll put it this way--it's logically not that distant from something like McCaffrey's Pern material, except we've mucked with our own genes...

    It's not all that explicit. It's just--it's this thing I wrote about Mycroft gender-switching and recognizing that means he'd really better get to work generating some heirs, as Sherlock shows no sign of getting around to it. Feel free to ask about the logic: as a snap-shot sort of story I did not pile in all that much appendix-like stuff that would "justify:" my silly SF scenarios.

    Summary

    When Greg's mouth acts before his brain and he tells his mom he's bringing someone on vacation to meet them, he has to think fast and figure out someone willing enough to actually go stay at his parents' in France and pretend to be involved. There is, of course, one person he wants to ask more than anything. However, wanting the scenario and then actually BEING in the scenario are two completely different things, and Greg soon realizes he is in way over his head. And quite possibly falling too hard, too fast, for someone who would never return those feelings...

    Summary

    Greg was in an office with a huge window overlooking a rough, grey sea, somewhere far from London. There was a tall, dark-haired woman with him, sitting in a chair and staring at him as though he were some sort of laboratory specimen. Her eyes were the sort of cold you might expect from a reptile. Greg was handcuffed to a chair by his wrists and ankles, his mouth held shut with duct tape.

    He suppressed a shiver. This, he thought, is not going to end well.

     

    An AU where it's not Molly but Greg who was targeted as one of Eurus's victims during the events at Sherrinford.
