Thank you Shadowfall for letting me try this! So I just read a really entertaining SPN fic where Dean is actually Lucifer and well, that pretty much throws Season 5 and the apocalypse on its side, and I got to work thinking all about Destiel and amazing angel stuff. (It was this one: http://archiveofourown.org/works/556708)
But I didn’t bring my Destiel blend.
I have this.
And you know what? That’s ok. I went months and months just reading all about John and Sherlock, one romancing the other and usually only after a lot of angst and misunderstanding before those two doofuses worked everything out, and then I realized I had overlooked an interesting pair.
YES. The Government and the Inspector. Mycroft IS so much more than appearances would let you believe – that’s part of what he does, is it not? How else can one man be the Government and walk through society without a billion bodyguards as entourage? He’s like John in that he has BAMF-moments that no one expects. But then Lestrade is totally like John too when he is as straightforward as he seems and uncorruptable and utterly loyal. And I’m just making this all up as I go, but what if these two are like different aspects of John? Huh. Anyway, they are both great men who do not seem like they would be a match AT ALL but now they’ve at least shared some screen time so FOLKS IT IS CANON NOW. That’s how it works, right?
And this tea? It’s an interesting mixture that doesn’t work against itself even though it should. It creates something wonderful and amazing, yet understated.
