| Gyreflight chapter 1 . 6/24
This plays out so perfectly that I think it's already written itself into my head-canon as an off-screen scene.
I really like your first-person John – steady and watchful and competent, but with his own edge of unpredictable individuality that can believably attract Moriarty's fickle attention. Moriarty himself also comes across very much in character – unbalanced, capricious...as terrifying in his unreason as his ruthlessness.
That first-person, present-tense perspective also very effectively adds a direct physical immediacy to the characterisation already gained through John's phrasing and observation – some of which deserve special mention in their own right:
/"Please," he says, and it's the scariest, least sincere please I've ever heard. It sounds like a death threat./
/Moriarty's voice is soft, so soft, like he's telling a story by firelight. In a dungeon. While you're chained to a wall./
Very nicely done - thanks for the read.

This made my hair stand on end! Well done!
Favorite line: "What's the worst thing that can happen to you?" "Nothing." Perfect summary of John Watson's philosophy of life. I also appreciated the "Hitchhiker's Guide" reference. Nice one!

This creeped me out. I could totally see this happening. Your Jim was spot-on. Great job!

Oh, I love this!
Jim's words, while being strangled and slightly infatuated, was truly a joy to read. Both spine tingling and oh so naughty all at once. Bravo!
