Sherlock Holmes and James Moriarty are dead, or so John Watson and Sebastian Moran believe. Heartbroken and lost without the two men they had separately trusted, these two ex-soldiers find each other, and find a new life together. Art by alessiapelonzi on deviantart.
[For you Watson and Moran shippers, this is a must read, and you won’t believe the ending!]
A teaser from The Dawning Light: A solution in the valley of loss.
If you had told me two weeks ago that I’d be drunkenly hugging the man my boss had me targeting while he “played” with the detective, I would have laughed in your face. Similarly, if you had told me two weeks ago that my boss was going to shoot himself in the head, I probably would have punched you in the face. James Moriarty was stronger than that. Smarter than that. And so to what end? Just to prove a point. Jim was a man-child, sure… but he was never weak, desperate, or stupid. That’s what that was. I don’t know if I’m even in grief. I’m just shocked and confused and, if I’m being honest with myself, a little lost. I was a colonel for the First Bangalore Pioneers, yes, but that was years ago. Since being employed by Moriarty, I’d become accustomed to taking care of him and following orders. It was like being institutionalized.
