Okay, I'm going to apologize for this up front.
Every month at thegameison_sh, there's also a Bonus Challenge. Bonus Challenge entries are mostly just for fun; they're not posted anonymously. There are prompts for said bonus challenges, and they're usually heavily image-based. This time around, the Bonus Challenge calls for a ficlet based on one of several prompts, and this is the only prompt I found myself moved to use, aided and abetted by the song I had on:
Lestrade drives Mrs. Hudson to the coast
You can imagine where my mind took this, probably. And I'm sorry. I like this world, and I can't get away from it just yet; in spite of how much it hurts, I enjoy exploring its mysterious edges. I needed to further tie the metaphysical to the temporal.
Title: I Dream a Highway (Back to You
Characters: DI Lestrade, Mrs. Hudson
Notes: An epilogue to the triptych consisting of I Meet You There, and We Go / The Half-Open Window / I Broke Them All For You.
Summary: They'd made no stops, her hip be damned. It's an important errand.
