Do You Want To Be With Somebody Like Me? (18/?)

And finally, I have updated this! I know, I know, seven months is waaaay too long, and I apologize (especially to @bakerst-sherlolly and @one-amber-owl), and I will not do it again. Bad me, no cookies. But I am moving plot forward in this part, I promise! So please, enjoy.

Do You Want To Be With Somebody Like Me? - Moriarty’s return has only granted Sherlock a temporary reprieve from punishment over his actions regarding Magnussen, and when a mission involving Sebastian Moran crosses Mycroft’s desk it seems to be the perfect way for Sherlock to pay his penance. This particular mission requires Sherlock to have a paramour, however, but Mycroft has that taken care of in the form of Molly. What begins as a ruse to fool Moran slowly becomes something more real, though, and as this mission takes Sherlock and Molly across the globe chasing after a ghost he begins to realize that there is much more that he can lose this time if he makes another wrong decision.

Read Chapter 18 @ AO3 (leave comments/kudos there)!

Or start from Chapter 1!

It took nearly a week to search out his contacts in Vienna and the outlying areas to begin doing what Moran wanted him to do. He was trying to be as discrete as possible about what his intentions were; if his contacts knew he was working for Moran and therefore Moriarty’s organization, they would shrivel up, and it could incite a domino effect among many more of his contacts. He had to be extremely careful how he went about things, and the fact that Moran wanted daily updates when there were none to give because he was being so careful was extremely frustrating.

He and Molly had gone out to walk around the MuseumsQuartier, enjoying the various sights there. He had let her lead the way, pulling him wherever she fancied, his mind half there and half on how to extricate himself from the problem of possibly losing his contacts if his true connections came to light. Eventually, Molly realized he wasn’t enjoying the sights with her and soon was heading back to the car they had rented.

“I’m sorry I spoiled your day,” he said when they approached it.

She turned to face him, leaning against the car and pulling him towards her. “You just seem so lost in thought, Sherlock. Talk to me. Tell me what’s going on n that mind of yours.”

He settled his hands on her waist and then looked down at her. “When I begin collecting information on the people that Moran wants and he begins forcibly making them a part of his new organization, it will become obvious the information I collected was used to ramrod them into accepting his vision. Therefore, my contacts will know I’m one of his sycophants, and they will no longer trust me.”

She reached up, playing with the scarf around his neck. “Do you have to use your contacts?” she asked.

“They’ll make it easier,” he replied.

“But would it be impossible if you didn’t use them?”

He looked over at her. “Harder, but not impossible.”
