Author's Summary

If ever a people deserved tasering, it’s Holmeses.

Comments

Half character study of female!Lestrade, half love story, this fic shows Mycroft and Lestrade falling in love with the Sherlock seasons weaving together in the backdrop. It's witty, in character, and beautifully written - an altogether enchanting Mystrade romance.

Characterization

Great - Female!Lestrade is notably more feminine than the canon character but she's just as vibrant, dedicated, and frustrated as we see in the show.

Pacing

Slow

Tone

Poignant
