Excerpt: Sherlock squinted at the screen and re-played the clip of CCTV footage. I leaned over, but couldn’t see much at that angle. Sherlock handed me the phone and started for the bridge. “You were right, Lestrade. Unless this turns out to be a very elaborate publicity stunt gone wrong, this might be a ten.”

Summary: A case and a touch in the dark.

Excerpt: Holmes’s hand closed about my wrist, one finger sliding over my skin beneath my cuff. In the dark, the touch was somehow loud and definitely distracting. He tugged. Thus linked, we went on.

Rating: R-ish
Word Count: ~9.5K
Warnings: None (although not Series 3-compliant)
Summary: A rather mundane case brings John and Sherlock to a castle. John finds the atmosphere stimulates his imagination. Sherlock takes note.
Prompts: Included: “…would prefer something leaning towards the fluffier/crackier end in this 'verse” and “feel free to ignore the season altogether and/or go with future fic” and “fluff, hurt/comfort, schmoop…magical realism…” Being thus liberated, I may have gone a bit wild.
A/N: Written for [livejournal.com profile] rhuia for the June 2014 Holmestice Exchange. Many thanks to her for the great prompts and many thanks to my beta who wishes to remain anonymous. There is a prequel to this story, entitled Moats. (Please see end notes for photo source.)

Rating: R-ish
Genre: Slash, romance, AU
Word Count: ~1.5K
Disclaimer: Sherlock is not mine and no money is being made.
Summary: Starlight. Conversation. Surveillance tapes.
A/N: Not Series 3 compliant. A continuation of the fic written for Let's Write Sherlock Challenge 13-Vacation Getaway. Although these two chapters may be read alone, they may also be read as part of the Mystrade set of stories which, more or less, began with an earlier holiday in We Are Sorry For Any Inconvenience.

Excerpt: The room at the top of the stairs was dominated by a skylight, a huge oval of star-scattered heavens. By the faint light from the landing, Greg saw a few outlines of furniture and more sky out a series of arched windows making up one wall. It didn’t seem very secure, not at all suited to Mycroft. There was a click and the light disappeared, the stars coming into sharper focus.

Summary: During the Hiatus, Greg’s and Mycroft’s interest in one another develops beyond the professional.
A/N: Not Series 3 compliant. Written for Let's Write Sherlock Challenge 13-Vacation Getaway. Although the story may be read alone, the theme of the challenge prompted me to write another story in the Mystrade series which, more or less, began with an earlier holiday in We Are Sorry For Any Inconvenience.

Excerpt: Nine days of leisure stretched before Greg. He hadn’t a reservation or a plan for a single hour of it. He’d received a few winks and nudges when he’d said he hadn’t booked anything. A week in bed with a like-minded partner would have been an excellent way to spend the time, but he didn’t have that lined up either. He pushed a certain thought away as he slipped between the tourists and commuters and continued east along the Embankment.

Rating: PG
Genre: Slash
Word Count: ~650
Disclaimer: Sherlock is not mine and no money is being made.
Summary: During the Hiatus, one of the Met’s cases and one of Mycroft’s investigations intersect and both Greg and Mycroft find themselves looking for evidence of something other than crime.
A/N: A little vignette which can be read alone or with the other Mystrade stories that are part of the Other Experiments Series. Ex Libris would be an extra scene between Necropolis and Safer.

Excerpt:
The concerto finished. Greg paused in his reading, eyes flitting around the edges of the page. At the top, a hare and a winged serpent nestled in the vines. Below them, a knight charged inside an ornate letter, brandishing an upraised sword. Was it the picture that had appealed? In the quiet, the faint snap of a mobile sliding closed sounded loud.

Summary: During the Hiatus, one of the Met’s cases and one of Mycroft’s investigations intersect and Greg’s and Mycroft’s interest in one another develops beyond the professional. Sherlock finds much of it inconvenient.
A/N: Written for [livejournal.com profile] mmc12 whose generous prompts for the December 2013 Holmestice Exchange included "Johnlock, Mystrade and Anything!" which spurred me to write a sequel to Necropolis. The two may be read as a pair or as part of the Other Experiments Series where they would fit in after We Are Sorry For Any Inconvenience and before Leaf Fall.

Excerpt: “Lestrade’s managed to find the Cheapside Hoard of homicide when I can’t do anything about it."

A/N: Written for the Spook-Me Multi-Fandom Halloween Ficathon 2013 to fill prompts involving demons/ghouls and drawings of old, crowded graveyards.

On AO3

Can be read alone.

Necropolis may also be read as a sequel to We're Sorry For Any Inconvenience.

Excerpt: “It’s not what I would have expected in a tomb.”
“No,” Mycroft said, stepping forward to stand next to Greg. “My…forebears had unusual views on many subjects.”

Rating: Between PG-13 & R-ish
Genre: pre-slash and rather fluffy
Word Count: ~10K
Disclaimer: Sherlock is not mine and no money is being made.
Summary: Months after The Fall, John doesn't return from a holiday. His friends and family don't report his absence to the police. Mycroft thinks Lestrade may know why. At least that's the ostensible reason for his visit to Lestade's office.
A/N: Written for the Sherlockmas SPF 2013 to fill Prompt #39: Lestrade; upgrade to first class for [livejournal.com profile] bwblack)

Also, posted on AO3

Can be read alone.

(The first paragraph is a summary of the opening scene between Mycroft and Lestrade in Carbonado. The full conversation that preceded Mycroft’s offer may be read here.)

We're Sorry For Any Inconvenience may also be read as part of the Other Experiments series where it would fit in after Carbonado.

Excerpt: Lestrade considered the man standing in his office. He was sure that if Sherlock wanted his brother to know he was alive and well and where he and John were, Mycroft wouldn’t be suggesting a friendly chat over dinner. Mycroft gestured towards the door as Greg stood and rounded the desk. He knew it was a dangerous move to accept, but Sherlock wasn’t the only one who loved a challenge.
