I love me some Mystrade. I've never actually read any that was terribly in character, for Mycroft in particular, but it's never really bothered me. This is no different. I suppose it's hard to write true-to-canon fic for two characters we've never even seen interact. God I hope they get some screen time together in series two.
So yes, more fic, two in two days. I wrote both of them a few weeks ago, actually. I just really need a distraction right now, hence the de-anoning and reposting.

: Mycroft has known Lestrade for years now, and has had a crush on him since day 1. But he never did anything about it, because not only was Lestrade's hair less grey back then, but Mycroft was chubbier, too. And why would such an attractive man want to be with a fattie? And so Mycroft diets and admires from afar for years and years, until Lestrade says one day, "Jesus, just buy me a drink and ask me to come back to yours, what is the problem here? I'll say yes, you know."( Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known. )
