Sometimes it's hard to be a sidekick...

[Sherlock is flirting with Moriarty, which seems to be happening far too much for their writers' sanity, and is generally distressing the whole entire world with its unholy not-rightness...]

John: *comes downstairs, mobile in hand* "Ah, Sherlock? What the bloody hell are you *doing*?!" #
Sherlock: "Tweeting." #
John: "Yes, I can see that. You remember that is the man who cracked my ribs, bruised my jaw, nearly froze the puppies...?" #
Sherlock: "Mhmm." #
John: *cold look* "So glad to see where Sherlock Holmes's loyalties lie." #
Sherlock: *finally looks up, slightly surprised* "It's all part of the game, John. Surely you realize that much." #
John: *frustration, exasperation, rage, take your pick* "The *game*?! You--" *promptly changes course, spins on heel, snatches coat* "I'm going out. Don't wait up." # #
Sherlock: *not rising to John's tantrum* "While you're out, pup need food." #

sun_goes_where: Next time I'm in the market for an assistant... remind me not to be. #


[As part of whatever their disturbing game is, Sherlock recently sent Jim a vial of formaldehyde with a fingerbone inside...]

Bastion: "Sir, I have concerns." #
Moriarty: "And banal, humdrum concerns I'm sure they are." *fully realises Sebastian will keep on until he listens* #
Bastion: *with the usual practised patience* "You and Holmes the younger." #
Moriarty: *picks soldering iron back up* "And I hoped you'd surprise me with something new." #
Bastion: "You realise, don't you, that he's only stringing you along?" #
Moriarty: *bitch, duh! voice* "Er, yes, that's why it's fun!" #
Bastion: *is really very VERY patient, and hence still alive* "I think he hopes to keep you distracted." #
Moriarty: "And he isn't succeeding. Now, have you any more agonisingly obvious observations to share?" #
Bastion: "So, shall I take the finger-bone in the jar and have it disposed of?" #
Moriarty: "Technically it is a vial, and you may leave it exactly where I have placed it." #
Bastion: "Very well, Jim." *I-hope-you-know-what-you're-doing glance; leaves him to his soldering* #
Moriarty: *cranks up music (Eurobeat Brony over Shostakovich's Fifth)* #

one_red_dot: @damnmyleg_sorry Would you object if I contacted you? #

(Er, poor Bastion? Possibly? What do you guys think of him, anyway?)

Incidentally, I humbly suggest you don't try Jim's several-pieces-of-music-at-a-time fetish at home. The things I subject myself to for research. The Soviet composers treading a deadly line between outward conformity to the Party and speaking to the hearts of the public. The Eurodance tracks about cartoon ponies making dresses. The horrible, horrible juxtaposition.
