Sherlock/Moriarty Fic Recs

High Noon - (mirrorverse) "And you know what? One day, showing up just won’t be enough. One day, we’ll be standing around a body and Sherlock Holmes will be the one that put it there."

This Heart Between Us Could Start a War - Mycroft called it loneliness, but then, what did Mycroft know anyway.

Phone SexIt’s just when Sherlock is contemplating doing something, anything, to keep himself occupied, that the phone rings.

i’m being born again (you may call it suicide) - (genderswap) jennifer moriarty spends a lot of time alone. she doesn’t mind; it’s not a problem. she likes being alone; she likes her own company.

Inhibitor/Catalyst(“There is no bigger picture. There are only moments. What do you want from this one? Do you want to play?”) Oh god, yes.

Five Ways Moriarty Could Have Answered His Question Sherlock tasted like flies caught in amber, and when the resin melted, it flowed like honey down his throat. 

this is not a love story - Sherlock, Moriarty, and the empty space between them. This is the closest they get to love.

Experience - Moriarty has chased Sherlock for too long and too hard and he looks at Sherlock as if. As if he’d like to cut him open and dissect him. Sherlock understands the impulse.

VicissitudeJim takes it upon himself to reinvent the mirror, to strip Sherlock bare and cover him in the brushstrokes of flowering bruises to prove to him, once and for all, that he is nothing less than what he is, nothing less than a masterpiece.

I Am You - Depeche Mode
This addiction that we’re both part of
leads us deeper into mystery
keeps us craving endlessly
I am you and you are me
I am you and you are me

Climbing Up The Walls - Radiohead
I am the key to the lock in your house
that keeps your toys in the basement
And if you get too far inside
you’ll only see my reflection
Either way you turn, I’ll be there
Open up your skull, I’ll be there

Face to Face - Siouxie and the Banshees
Commit your crime in your deadly time, it’s too divine
Face to face, no telling lies
The masks they slide to reveal a new disguise
You never can win, it’s the state I’m in
This danger thrills and my conflict kills
Face to face, and dream of flying
Who are you? Who am I?

I Found A Way - First Aid Kit
It’s me you’ve come to take, my duality awakes
By midnight time I could not see
if I were you or you were me
We play the game with skillful hands
and so I asked for your demands
Give me your love, give me your thumb
and he traced us back to where we begun

Don’t Move - Phantogram
It’s not your heart that you’ve been thinking of
Just the feeling that you’re gonna die
Keep your body still, keep your body still
All you do is shake, shake, shake
Don’t you know you’re alive, burning in the sky

I Like Pretending - IAMX
Are we machines, obsolete, alone?
And if we dig deep the circuitry burnt out, bends
into neurotic repetition
The whole world’s insanities,
the bleeding hearts and tragedies,
won’t distract me from the death wish
Are we pretending?

n - iamamiwhoami
Dress the part, it’s storytelling time
We push the boundaries
So the rules are bent just in time
Tell me how the story ends now

Without You I’m Nothing - Placebo (ft. David Bowie)
You never see the lonely me at all
I take the plan, spin it sideways, I fall
Without you, I’m nothing
Without you, I’m nothing
Take the plan, spin it sideways
Without you, I’m nothing at all

"Even though he’s an international super-villain, I think he takes great pleasure in what he does. So it was important that I really enjoyed it and we got the sense that Moriarty is really playful about it and not serious. And then sometimes you think that he really is serious about it…sometimes he’s massively scary and sometimes he’s just charm itself." - Andrew Scott (x)

Call Me Maybe (Sherlock + Moriarty)

    Martin Freeman (Watson) has said that when Sherlock and Moriarty are together, his job as an actor is to get out of the way. So how does Moriarty actually regard John Watson?
    Andrew Scott: Oh, he’s absolutely on his radar. Moriarty has an obsession with Sherlock, but that means the detective’s best friend is always going to cause some sort of stirring of strong emotions. There’s a scene in the final episode where I wanted to be able to show that in a small way what Moriarty’s attitude to John is. I think it’s one of restrained respect, but also one of envy. Because Moriarty is a sociopath, I think there is something he doesn’t fully understand about friendship. He doesn’t have any friends himself, and that’s what separates him from Sherlock.

The genius of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. When it came to villains and mystery and heroes and adventure, there’s never been anyone to touch Sir Arthur. Every so often I have to write a ‘hero meets villain’ scene. A suave exchange of verbal blows. Simmering hatred in clipped sentences. Wit and war!

I do it with a heavy heart because I know there’s a moment that can’t be beat – this simple exchange in The Final Problem, written in 1893.

Moriarty: ‘Everything I have to say has already crossed your mind.’
Holmes: ‘Then possibly my answer has crossed yours.’

Better Than Heaven – Bloc Party
Never been a big fan of things
But I’m growing so fond of you
You get sadder the smarter you get
And it’s a bore
Much too, much too typical 

Dull Life – Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Step slowly, you know that you fall between
Dark places, what a simple web we weave
We’ve seen the nightmare of the lies that you speak
We’ve seen the nightmare of your lies 

Another Case – Uh Huh Her
I’m better than the other ones; you’re a harder chase
I will take you to the other side; I will set you up
I will break you either way it seems
It’s a testimony to how this will end
I will stay awake till I’m the only one
That’s another case you failed 

Infra-Red– Placebo
One more thing before we start the final face-off
I will be the one to watch you fall
So I came down to crash and burn your beggar’s banquet
Someone call the ambulance; there’s gonna be an accident 

Megalomania – Muse
Take off your disguise
I know that underneath it’s me
Useless device, it won’t suffice
I want a new game to play 

Do I Disappoint You? – Rufus Wainwright
Do I disappoint you, in just being human?
Why does it always have to be fire?
Why does it always have to be brimstone?
And do I disappoint you?
Do I disappoint you in being like you?
