Summary: He realised that some officers were able to maintain reasonably healthy relationships and remain on the force, but he had tried that. He was too intense, too passionate, to balance his life to the satisfaction of a partner, and when given the choice between a partner and his job he had chosen his job. Every time.
Why You Should Read This: This is a really great read. Entirely from Lestrade’s point of view. It covers canon events, briefly, and then diverts into something else entirely. It provides a nice look into the man that is Lestrade, and why he does what he does. Also includes BAMF!Lestrade, BAMF!Anthea, and BAMF!John. Sometimes it isn’t the genius’ that have to save the day.
