Stoppit. Stop making me sad.
As a side note, I always want to ruffle Sherlock's hair when you draw it.

Greg is just so strong. Always so strong. When we see him in the series he exudes such a deep strength, and in all of your pictures he is the same: solid, and dependable, and strong. This is the heart of Lestrade's character: solid, dependable strength. I know that he is fragile inside, that there are days when he also feels like he too just can't do it anymore. But Lestrade will never show this side of himself, he keeps his head up and he soldiers on. He holds himself up. He is strong: true strength is not being strong but acting strong. Being broken but carrying on anyway. And this is Lestrade.

I love how you draw him because you draw him so strong. His posture, his expression, the line of his back and the width of his shoulders and the postition of his arms, he is always so so strong. He is a constant, a rock. He is solid. He is something for Sherlock to hold onto, to depend on. And here he stands tall and firm and brave, and while Sherlock grasps onto him and buries his face in Lestrade, Lestrade himself just stands and holds him so tightly and with such strength. It destroys Lestrade to see his little detective so upset, so lost. Lestrade himself is very much lost. But he does not show it. Sherlock needs him, and he is there.

And Sherlock knows that Lestrade will never let him go, will never let him down, will not release him from the hug until he wants to be released. Greg will hold him forever if he needs it. Greg will carry him forever if he needs it. He can rely on his Lestrade. The world might fill him with doubt, but he will never doubt Lestrade because he will never have any reason to doubt Lestrade. Greg is his safety. His rock. Greg gives him strength.

Greg feels the same way sometimes. So tired, so old and so sad. He feels like he can't do it anymore. But he holds his head up and he acts strong, for Sherlock. Because Sherlock needs him to be strong. And when Sherlock hugs him like this, with his thin little arms round his neck and his little face buried in Lestrade's neck and his soft hair brushing Lestrade's chin, it gives him strength. Sherlock gives him strength.

Lestrade is so strong and so wonderful. He gets his strength from Sherlock and he gives his strength to Sherlock and he stays strong for Sherlock and Sherlock makes him strong. When Sherlock cannot do it anymore, Lestrade makes it better; When Lestrade cannot do it anymore, Sherlock makes it better. They need one another so much. It is such a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. It is love. It is a love that does not need a title or a name. It is something pure and wonderful and beautiful and very very strong.

Awwh, dear lady. What a wonderful thing to come home to such a lovely comment. Your comment to my picture was as always beautiful and awwh I want to draw you much more pictures – only to make you happy, my friend. ^^

Yeah I draw Lestrade always very strong and solid – a rock in Sherlock’s fast changing world. Like you said even if Lestrade should break himself – he will be always be there for Sherlock – he knows that S needs him – that S needs his calm, solid presence in his life – that he needs someone he can hold on and someone who loves him without demanding something back. I think the most beautiful aspect of Lestrades character is his selflessness and that he puts the wellbeing of other people before his own. That’s also the reason I think why he endured his wife cheating on him for so long – I don’t think he didn’t know it – what his wife did beyond his back – Lestrade is smart – he is good at detective work and he can put two and two together but he put his wife wellbeing before his own – like he puts S wellbeing before his own – the only difference is – that S would never willingly hurt L because he cares for the DI – even if he doesn’t show it often.

Yeah L will never let S go – only when S want it himself. I think it is a wonderful aspect of there relationship that L let’s S pick the pace. That he can seek comfort when he wants but it is his choice. Sometimes I think L handles S like a scared deer – one false move and S will bolt and Lestrade figured the exact way how to prevent S from turning away.

Awwh your words were so beautiful. So incredible beautiful. And awwh I love the end of your comments – awwh you are absolutely right – it is love and it does not needs a title because it is wonderful and pure and strong.

Thank you for saying what you said and I hope you had a splendid day today. Take care, my friend. <3

Aww I love your detailed replies my friend :heart: you understand them so well and it is so wonderful to see. Aw indeed Lestrade is so so utterly selfless. He puts everyone ahead of himself. He tries to help everyone at any cost.vHe will do anything for the people he loves. Especially Sherlock.

And awwwww what you say is so lovely about Greg letting Sherlock choose the pace. I think that is very true also. Greg just wants to make Sherlock feel happy and safe. He lets Sherlock choose what happens. He puts Sherlock's wants and needs ahead of his own, always.
