    Summary

    (Royalty/Diplomat AU.) Mycroft Holmes, newly appointed as Her Majesty's Ambassador to the United States, is settling very nicely into Washington. His apartment at the British Embassy is comfortable and pleasingly private... right until the moment when a half-naked prince strolls into his kitchen.

    Prince Gregory is the youngest son of the reigning British monarch. He's staying in the royal flat upstairs, and what he lacks in boundaries, he makes up for in charm and good looks.

    But would a romance with a royal pose a risk to Mycroft's career?

    Summary

    He'd read fairy tales when he was a kid, had read myths, heard snippets of folklore. Now and then he'd hear weird rumours on the streets of uncanny things that he'd dismissed as the drugged out ravings of hallucinating junkies, but now he was wondering what he'd missed, and if they really had seen things.

     

     

    Greg Lestrade had always considered himself an ordinary bloke, not prone to flights of fantasy. When he is kidnapped from the streets of London and wakes in a dungeon, he must reevaluate everything he thought he knew about the world, and about himself.

    Summary

    This grew out of several weeks of trying to express something that, to me, seems probable about at least some people's sexuality--and certainly of some versions of Mycroft's sexuality. It's an element that's often expressed in terms of sub and dom, or humiliation kink, or exhibitionism. However, I think often that only approximates what is going on. There's just something insanely erotic about knowing one is seen so intensely, and allowing it--encouraging it--giving in to the desire to be observed and desired.

    Within that context, you're invited to be amused by Lestrade's cleverness, and Mycroft's failure to avoid the key trap of his seduction.

    Summary

    In a land far from our time, Greg and Mycroft are nobles. They’ve never met, until one day, they fall for each other in a way that neither would have expected. But Mycroft wakes alone as Greg had said he would, covered only by a heavy jacket, and carrying a secret just as heavy.

    Secrets can be hidden, unless there are circumstances that bring them to light. Such as a betrothal interrupted, a bond that was never expected, and a spark of recognition that could bring Mycroft’s entire world to an end.

Like a certain Detective Inspector of his acquaintance, who he would very much like to make a better acquaintance, if he only had the chance. Perhaps a little wish might be of help... at least in his dreams...
