hound-of-d'urbervilles

Dullards would have you believe that once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth…but to a mathematical mind, the impossible is simply a theorem yet to be solved. We must not eliminate the impossible, we must conquer it, suborn it to our purpose. Whatever remains, however dully probable, will satisfy earthbound thinkers, while we have the profit of the hitherto inconceivable. Besides, I doubt anyone with a silver bullet in his brains couldn’t tell it from lead.

Professor James Moriarty, The Hound of the D'Urbervilles

I will be forever grateful that there is an actual book, existing, written, published, in which Seb has The Hots™ for Jim

Let me just point out “My destiny and his wound together. It was a sensation I’d never got before upon meeting a man. When I’d had it from women, the upshot ranged from disappointment to attempted murder.

SEB IS BI AND HE’S HOPELESSLY IN LOVE WITH JIM PRAISE THE LORD AND THANK KIM NEWMAN LIKE I DO EVERYDAY

anonymous asked:

How did you meet/find Sebastian?

“I have no idea how he found me. I met up with a friend one day who was pushing me towards working with some creepy bastard who needed a sniper. Barman nearly shat himself when he mentioned Moriarty to him and we got free drinks for the afternoon- so at that I made my way over to Conduit Street and haven’t left since.” - SM.

‘Only an idiot guesses or reasons or deduces,’ the Professor said, patiently.

They’ve called him the Napoleon of crime, but that’s just putting what he is, what he does, in a cage. He’s not a criminal, he is crime itself, sin raised to an art form, a church with no religion but rapine, a God of Evil. Pardon my purple prose, but there it is. Moriarty brings things out of people, things from their depths.

But, at that moment, I was his, and I remain his forever. If I am remembered, it will be because I knew him. From that day on, he was my father, my commanding officer, my heathen idol, my fortune and terror and rapture.
