Alright guys, I’m ready for the 100% real, super non ooc, Moriarty spinoff series that’s based around The Hounds of the D’urbervilles and the Carl Powers case and the real Final Problem. Written, starring, cast, and directed by Andrew!
Gavin Jeremy was more dangerous than Geoff had anticipated. He hadn’t
meant to, exactly, had only needed someone to show the new kid the
ropes, had trusted that Gavin would throw on his polished shine for
long enough to go through the basics before ditching him somewhere.
He hadn’t anticipated coming back hours later and seeing the two of
them still together, loud and animated in their excitement, Jeremy
bright eyed and overeager, Gavin more himself than he normally
allowed around strangers.
that should have set off alarm bells, maybe Geoff should have stepped
in and done something about it, but honestly he’d just been feeling
fucking relieved. Falling into the highly selective pool of people
Gavin has claimed as his own is intense, but it’s better than the
alternative, better than unworkable aloofness, awkwardness masked by
cold disinterest, or worse, active dislike. Dislike which wouldn’t be
expressed, would be kept hidden behind false pleasantry and left
festering for months before manifesting in malfunctions and
incidents, jammed weapons and disabled break lines. A messy end.
god it’s not like Geoff had known how far it would go, how one good
start would grow into burning buildings and wicked laughter, how the
seemingly calm and level-headed Jeremy would only amplify the
calamity of Gavin at his most dangerous. The way Jeremy would provide
enthusiastic encouragement, an ardent defender for when things got
violent, a sounding board for bad ideas, a willing volunteer, and how
in return Gavin would lavish him with praise and affection, stolen
trinkets and his most dazzling megawatt smile.
have something like Gavin and Michael’s dynamic, but where Michael
draws lines, hauls Gavin back down to earth, tells him to piss off
and go do his own thing for a while, Jeremy will bring Gavin the sun.
Listens to every madcap idea with a delighted look on his face, as
keen to participate as he was the day Geoff hired him, be it a plot
to teach a violent rival crew a lesson with a firehose or the
unnecessarily risky decision to rob a target while they attend the
LSPD’s police ball. Regardless of how badly their last endeavour
ended it never takes much more than one of Gavin’s wild grins to have
Jeremy dropping whatever he’s doing and following him out the door,
the rest of the crew watching on in despair as disturbing phrases
like “trained alligator” and “confetti canon
bloodbath” drift down the hall.
worried. He adores Gavin but he knows him better than anyone, knows
it’s his job
to read people, to push their buttons and draw out the exact
responses he’s looking for; he wouldn’t mess with a crew-mate on
purpose but Geoff isn’t entirely sure he’s always conscious of it
anymore, and Jeremy is still trying to find his place. Having all of
Gavin’s attention is a bit like getting struck by lightning, awesome
and terrible and utterly overwhelming, far too easy to lose yourself
in. So Geoff has to ask, check a dozen times, determined to make sure
his newest hire doesn’t feel compelled, knows his place within the
crew doesn’t hinge on his participation in Gavin’s extracurricular
activities, that Geoff was the only one who’s orders he actually had
attempt is met with amusement, Jeremy quietly pleased by the concern
but firm in his assurance that he’s only playing along because he
wants to, that this is all a part of what attracted him to the FAHC
in the first place. It took a while for Geoff to see that his fears
were unfounded, or at the very least misguided. To recognise that for
all Jeremy’s apparent eager naivety in leaping to play a part in the
allure of one of Gavin’s plans there was nothing at all innocent
about the gleeful look in his eyes, the dark edge in his laugh, the
way he pushed and prodded Gavin into plotting bigger and more daring
escapades. As much the corruptor as he was the corrupted, an equal
partner in the mayhem. And, well. Isn’t that worrying.
So this semester I forced managed to convince my roommate to watch gravity falls with me, and since she was such a good sport about it I made her a sticker sheet as a reward for finishing. The main inspiration for this was actually the bear sticker, since that was her favorite part.
