Have you ever thought about that Sebastian Moran is the only person who gets to see Jim in the small ‘every-day’ situations? Not just as the business man he is, but he sees him unconcentrated and staring into the void for no good reason. Sebastian can watch him when he’s asleep and the few minutes of waking up in the morning, making tiny noises and being so very human. It’s not just the good sides, though. Sebastian knows when Jim’s at the end of his strength and fucking knows what do to, if not - he’ll find a way.
Jim Moriarty is such an unreachable person, for so many people not more than a myth and a whispered name. But then there’s Sebastian Moran, important enough for someone who’s probably never thought of having someone that close.
