"And if I'm very very lucky, I might even get to see him become a good one."

"Whelp, I suppose you better make your ten years count."

Based on a friend's request, the popular idea that Lestrade was the one who got Sherlock clean from drugs some years ago, before he met John. How? I went all morbidly creative and went with the Crossroads Demon thing from Supernatural, which in case you don't watch the show, a person can make any wish come true if he buries something in the middle of a crossroad (in which case a demon will show up) with the price that he would only be able to live ten more years before being dragged to hell.

Yeah someone push me off a cliff.

Wow. Just wow. You are EPIC. I needed SuperLock in my day. :)
As said in my comment, I love this concept - I've never seen it before.
I also really like the expression on Crowley's face, and the quiet pain on Lestrade's. That Greg's smoking makes an impact, at least to me. And the idea that Lestrade would sell his soul to the king of hell for a 'brilliant man'...T.T It implies a lot about them, and their strange relationship. It also gives us a brief look into why Lestrade even puts up with him in the first place.
Nice shading, and the shadows are well-placed - good job! The full moon was a nice touch, as was Crowley's sardonic grin.
Definately five stars!
What do you think?

Darn you! I'm trying not to give you full starts on everything but it's so damn hard!
The idea is amazing, the preformance even more.
Everything fits in, right up to the text.
I don't think I can, in general, fill in 100 words without each of them praising this.
So I'll try.. Something.. Anything.. Okay soo.. Uhhh..
The shading in Lestrade's hair (Yes, I bloody well went there) It's bautiful but some of it looks abit like a lump and it's lightend from the back too which isn't so reasonible.
So. There! I found something wrong with it. Not so much, though.
OHH - The moon isn't a perfect circle. (muhahhaahahaha)
I'll just quit.
This is amazing.

Oh, god yes. Wait, to break the deal, would Sherlock have to slip back into drugs? Of all the stories I have read, four out of five times the person gets out of the deal, somehow. I wonder if Sherlock would do that again for Greg... probably....

I am so mad at you right now. I was thinking of this last night, and couldn't sleep because my brain took it as writing prompt. Thank you for helping me come up with a great crossover idea.

Oh, Lestrade, honey... :tears:

I love the detail in this! I see Lestrade's smoking as a sort of distraction, so he doesn't overthink his decision. I wonder if Mycroft knew about this... And Sherlock better be grateful.
