Author's notes: This is a story for g_c who gave me the very awesome prompt of 'Lestrade and Sherlock get stranded on the side of some far-off, country road because Sherlock forgot to put [petrol] in the car'. I've taken some liberties with Sherlock's background. Thanks to the lovely people of britpickery for giving me great resources to help decide where Holmes Ancestry Home might be located.
( If there was ever a time for a cigarette, it was when you were stuck in the middle of nowhere with Sherlock Holmes.Collapse )
