Reagan Quimby (FC:Anna Poppelwell)-
Reagan grew up in Durham near the Holmes family estate. She and Mycroft dated for a summer, and was Myc’s first foray into the world of relationships. The few months they spent together involved lots of chaste kisses and hand holding, mostly initiated by Reagan. Violet Holmes thought Miss Quimby was a right proper girl and highly approved. Mycroft secretly thought Reagan’s brother was far more entertaining.
Bairavi O’Connor (Connie) (FC: Amara Karan)-
Connie was the eldest daughter of an Irish man and Indian woman who owned a fusion restaurant in Cornwall. She met Mycroft at Cambridge and the pair hit it off instantly. They tried dating for a brief while, but Connie quickly noticed that something wasn’t right. She was the first person to openly question Mycroft’s sexuality. Although their relationship ended, they remained excellent friends (and are still in contact). Connie helped transform Mycroft from a shy and bookish boy into a confident and outspoken man. The pair shared many interests and traveled in similar circles; it was through Connie that Mycroft met:
Pierce Aberdeen (FC: David Kross)-
Pierce was the first person Mycroft actually loved. He was the lead singer in a band that Connie often went to see. The pair got along well, Mycroft easily falling for Pierce’s natural charm. They agreed to room together their second semester at Cambridge, when Pierce’s original roommate moved out. The tension between the boys was manageable until they lived together, and infatuation exploded into a sexually charged relationship. The boys were together for three years. Pierce was a sweet-talker, but he had his fair share of flaws. He could be verbally abusive, and had trouble with the word “no”, especially after a few drinks. Everyone knew that Pierce wasn’t always faithful, especially when he was wrapped up with his “Rockstar Mentality”. Mycroft ended their relationship in their Senior Year after confronting Pierce. When Mycroft asked his boyfriend whether he was ready to get serious and start focusing on their post-collegiate lives, Pierce replied that the only thing that mattered was his band. Dissatisfied with the answer, Mycroft left with damaged self esteem and his first taste of heartbreak.
After three years of a serious relationship, Mycroft spent a good deal of time fooling around. His relationships were limited to one-night-stands and casual flings, until he met:
Chase Campbell (FC: Joseph Gordon-Levitt)-
Chase loved Mycroft, honestly and deeply. He was captivated by Mycroft’s intelligence and sense of humor, and was instrumental in reminding Mycroft that happiness in a relationship is attainable. They met early on in Mycroft’s career as a politician, and were together for the better part of Mycroft’s 20’s. His longest relationship was with Chase. However, as Mycroft got more involved in the world of politics and government, he began to have less and less time for his lover. Their schedules rarely coincided, and while Chase distinctly set aside time, Mycroft would end up cancelling dates or having to reschedule. Chase was understanding, and wrote it off because Mycroft was “an important man”, but the young bureaucrat knew that he was hurting his lover. Foreseeing that the higher he ladder climbed, the farther he’d be from Chase, Mycroft made the decision to end the relationship, and quietly broke Chase’s heart.
They still send one another letters at Christmas.
After Chase, Mycroft had little interest in anything serious. Now in his thirties, he was content to focus on his career. Casual relationships became normal again, if he sought contact at all.
Throughout his “fling” period, Mycroft met:
Rick Powell (FC: Hugh Grant)-
Rick and Mycroft hooked up several times over the course of a few months. One evening after a few drinks they settled into the familiar- “well, we’re not getting any younger…” conversation, and agreed to date. The sex was good, and they were from similar social classes. Neither had their heart in the relationship, and it was quickly apparent that nothing would ever come of it. Still, Mycroft stayed with Rick for a number of years. They were together until Mycroft got tired of Rick’s chronic lies and attempts at hiding a gambling problem. The couple split, and it was back to random hookups.
About six months after Rick, Mycroft met:
Adam Harris (FC: Alexander Ludwig)-
The young man was Mycroft’s mid-life crisis, and the beginning of his “Sugar Daddy” phase. Mercifully, by this point the bureaucrat had Anthea, who was able to talk him out of this month-long phase. Mycroft quickly moved on to someone a bit more age-appropriate. Enter:
Tyler Lloyd. (FC: Andrew Garfield)-
Although Tyler’s age was a bit closer to Mycroft’s, he was still considerably younger than the Bureaucrat. Their year-long relationship was defined by Mycroft squandering away money and gifts on the Liverpool native. Tyler was arm-candy and Mycroft was a limit-free credit card. There was no depth to their relationship, and even the sex was lackluster. Mycroft was soon bored, and wrote Tyler an extremely handsome check in exchange for a permanent goodbye.
After a string of unsuccessful, unfulfilling relationships, the Brit found himself both disheartened, and bitter.
And then came:
Nickolaus Kenning (FC: Cillian Murphy)-
The American had just the right mix of charm, class, and wit to catch Mycroft’s eye. What held his attention was the New Yorker’s intelligence. Nick was a challenge, mentally and emotionally, multifaceted and genuinely interesting to Mycroft. Nick’s schedule was just as busy as Mycroft’s, eliminating the bureaucrat’s guilt over spending too much time at the office. Although Nick came with a criminal record and a healthy dose of psychopathy, he is, to date, the only lover that has stimulated Mycroft on such a deep level. However, with so many conditions to consider, Mycroft isn’t sure they’ll ever have a “normal” relationship.
Time we updated this isn’t it brother dear. Don’t forget about that German.
One, what are you both doing in my files, two, this will only be updated with individuals that I’m in/have been in an actual relationship with. Ergo, no reason to update yet. Especially not with Sven.
Evan looks quite a bit like Pierce. Older obviously, but similar.
It’s like being handed a hit list. Happy Christmas!
Sven? My body isn’t even cold yet, darling.Source: governmentsanctionedbrollies
