Disclaimer: I do not own these characters, and am making no profit from their use, more's the pity.
Warnings: Violence, sex, some torture in this chapter
Summary: Written for a kinkmeme prompt: Moriarty frames John and "Anthea" of betrayals which cause both of the Holmes brothers to cut them off. Cue BAMF!John and BAMF!"Anthea" doing their best to clear their names. Both het and slash; Mycroft/Anthea and John/Sherlock.

Part Eight

YES. Way to go John! La ti da, oh a bit of torture for two hours--Oh, hey look, I broke your neck. BAMF!John FTW!

And also BAMF!Anthea/Jane. <3333

Mummy Holmes is amazing, and I second all the others who agree that they should totally cast Judi Dench for that role. Yes.

Can't wait to see the brother's Holmes' reaction to how Moriarty died. "Oh hey, BTW, crazy psycho guy? Broke his neck. You're bloody welcome you right bastards."

Quick and easy, and lacking all the necessary drama I'm sure the brothers assumed there would have to be. And also looking forward to their reaction to the spontaneous kiss. <3


I figured that's the way John kills someone - if, for whatever reason, he thinks they need to die then he just makes them dead. No dramatic confrontations, no last minute speeches - just dead.

And after that wonderful poster was made for me with Judi Dench as Mummy, I knew I had to squeeze a comment like that in somewhere...

Now I'm thinking (picture it with me...)...Mild mannered everyday people looking after petulant Man-Child (Sherlock/Mycroft) by day Super Kickass Spy Team at night, hnn hnn?

Mummy needs to hire them as a Special Ops Team of 2 they kick so much ass.

Feel like i've been waiting for this forever but you gave me all I could want. Again they prove what BAMF's they can be. Now can't wait to see what Mummy has to say and what's gonna happen with Sherlock and Mycroft (rubs hand together in glee...)

Also, meant to say how I love that two people with the most ordinary names in the world are two of the most extraordinary!!

Did not expect John to snap Moriarty's neck. It's so perfectly understated yet BAMF that now I can't imagine any other end their torture session. Love that John considers Jane a sister in arms. Brilliant. Time for groveling!

I figured that's the way John's going to kill someone - no dramatic confrontations or last speeches for him. He just makes them dead.

poor them. but at least they are free now again. can't wait for you to go on and for sherlock and mycroft to make john and jane forgive them and to make them better.

I love it that John's killing Moriarty is un-dramatic yet totally BAMF. And I nearly cried out in relief when they finally made it out!
I expect some good apologies though!

I figured that's the way John's going to kill someone - no dramatic last stands or speeches, they're just dead.

yay! finally free! and i am all for grovelling of the Holmes-boys too ;)

Oh, there are some serious apologies to be made, that's for sure...

Total win! BAMF!John and Anthea, contrite Sherlock and Mycroft and AVRA! Awesome Avra! I love this so much!

<3 <3 <3

I must admit I adored creating Avra into the kind of kickass woman who could have dealt with both Sherlock and Mycroft...

Yay, so glad to see this updated. Poor John, lots of healing to go through now. Will be interesting to see how Sherlock reacts when he realises the extent to John's injuries.
Also, I love that John was able to kill Moriarty and that he and Jane were able to basically rescue themselves - go the BAMFs!!!
Will be eagerly awaiting for more.

Thanks! And I loved writing John and Jane as kickass action heroes who saved themselves.

A truly bamf! chapter...I loved Moriarty's ignominious end..no long villainous monologue, just exactly what he had coming.

Also John doing what John does best, being extraordinary while wearing 'the-fuzzy-cable-knit-sweater-of-nothing-to-see-here'

Thanks for the update, as always I eagerly await what comes next.

Exactly! John's not the type to get bogged down with dramatic last stands or speeches - if someone needs to die, he makes them dead. End of story.

Also, 'the-fuzzy-cable-knit-sweater-of-nothing-to-see-here' needs to be an icon or something, because that's hilarious! I wonder if I can squeeze that phrase into a fic somewhere...

*throws confetti*

Hooray! New Chapter! I read this all with one hand scrolling, and the other at my mouth...like I was watching a scary movie. Action packed, with a great payoff.

Thank you for writing!

Thank you for getting them out of there, and for clearing up the Moriaty mess at the same time, that was perfect! And please make the Holmes' work to be forgiven! Yes they were stupid, and yes they were set up, but still... Lots of grovelling!

Thank you ever so much for writing and sharing your wonderful stories!

Thanks! After what had happened in the last chapter, I thought it was important to get John and Anthea out of there as quickly as possible...

Yay! John is way more of a BAMF than James Bond. *nod* And Anthea is right up there with him. Like a female version. Jane Bond... would you beleive, it's taken me this long to realise why John decided to call her that. *facepalm.*

Unless there was another reason, and I'm completely wrong. Nevermind!

*waits impatiently for the next chapter*

Thanks! And I called Anthea 'Jane' because it's one of the most generic female names in the English language, and because it made her parallel with John very well.

Wow. I cringed through the torture--a bit hard to read. I knew that as soon as John knew the two hours were up, he'd turn on Moriarty, but I didn't realize he'd be quite so effective! I should have known. Of course Moriarty and his thug had become complacent: John was doing everything he was told, and if they thought about it at all, they probably thought he was too weak to do anything at that point. Moriarty had no idea a simple recitation of the time would be all the trigger John needed. (I wonder if he died with that look of surprise on his face. . . .)

I love that Jane did indeed manage to break out--and was annoyed at herself for being almost a whole minute late. Her tone to John is exactly right: he needs her to be business-like at this point. It's also fabulous that she's so ready to believe that John can throw knives expertly. (Of course he shrugs it off: "I probably missed by a mile." Never mind that most of us couldn't lift a scalpel by that point, let alone throw it in the direction of heavily-armed men.)

I love that John and Jane rescued themselves from the criminal mastermind. They couldn't get past all of Moriarty's people alone, but that was just because of numbers.

John and Jane's giddiness at having escaped rings very true, even while John seems fairly convinced they've escaped torture only to go to jail. Poor John! Please give him some painkillers, stat!

I'm looking forward to Jane and Mycroft, and particularly John and Sherlock, having some time alone to recover, and so the Holmes boys can make some starts on amends. I also want to see John meet Avra!

I'm sure Moriarty did indeed die with a look of surprise on his face.

I definitely loved writing John and Jane as kickass action heroes who essentially saved themselves - it was only the clean-up they needed help with.

And the brothers have some serious grovelling to do, most definitely.

This has been a terrific read. BAMF!John putting Moriarty down like the practical man he is. No muss, no drama - just did what he had to do and moved on. I loved that. The dolphin noises comment? Applies here too. I love Mummy Holmes, and cannot wait to see how that plays out. I thought it a great detail that even now John still expects to go to jail. He's free of Moriarty, but even seeing the Holmes boys stricken and anxious, he expects no good fortune. Having survived is success enough. I'm also curious to see how they respond to the spontaneous thank!God we lived kiss. This fic is made of win!! I'm looking forward to seeing some proper hurt/comfort for our poor doctor, and am eager to see how his and Anthea's friendship evolves from here, as well as how the boys show their remorse. Thank you so much for writing this!

I figured that's what John does - if, for some reason, he decides someone needs to die, he just makes them dead. End of story. And of course he expects to go to jail - as far as he knows, they still think of him as Moriarty's lackey, poor guy (I'm awfully mean to him).

Attack John! Attack! Rip Moriarty's balls off!!!
God! I want the next chapter. N'awww. More waiting *Huff* You're too good at writing, you're making me bounce in my seat already.
