There are two types of people.
Scared? Psssh, look at that last gif. Look at his face. That’s not scared. That’s curious. That’s excited. He thinks John is Moriarty for just a second, and he’s impressed.
Because imagine if Moriarty had wormed his way into being Sherlock’s roommate. His companion. His motherfucking friend and confidant. All while acting as clueless and compassionate. While never, ever letting on to motherfucking Sherlock that he wasn’t what he appeared to be. Sherlock - the literal master of both observation and disguise.
Sherlock would be wetting himself. Seriously.

London, that great cesspool into which all the loungers and idlers of the Empire are irresistibly drained.
[…] try to imagine fandom’s reaction if the next big Holmes adaptation to come along had Holmes and Watson as British, yeah - young black British men, living case to case on a council estate in a dodgy area of London. How fandom would react if Sherlock Holmes didn’t employ street kids and homeless people like trained animals to do his bidding, but instead was part of that invisible underclass; if instead of having his eccentricities tolerated~ by Scotland Yard on account of being the Great White Genius, Sherlock Holmes, BME, school dropout, and sometime addict, was regarded by the police as practically a criminal already, one more thug, one more junkie, one more dealer in the making. If he had to choose between buying the week’s groceries or palming a twenty to a bored constable for the chance to spend five minutes on a crime scene, in the hope that whoever’s under enough pressure to deal with crime rates in the neighbourhood will pay him enough for a perp to feed himself and Watson for a month or two. If the greatest threat to his safety were police brutality, or the prospect of being done for a snitch; if his arch enemy weren’t Moriarty, but the systemic poverty and inequality that has him helping out his oppressors just to get by, and that makes the other side of the law look more tempting to someone with his skills every day.
I would watch the hell out of that. I’d even write for it. What do you do with Mycroft being part of the “Establishment” then? Mycroft works at the local youth center? Mycroft as a pastor, deeply disapproving of his brother’s failure to reject street culture and conform? Hell, Mycroft IS the police? Token affirmative-action face of colour, should have made DI ages ago but is still a PC even though half the force secretly ask his help? And because they resent Mycroft, they resent Sherlock even more, fueling the rivalry? Lestrade can stay a DI, with the authority to choose to work with either Holmes but not enough authority to force everyone else to do so.
I’m curious to see how Mrs Hudson and Moriarty would work in this.
Holy fuck this would be truly awesome. Mrs Hudson could be a nice woman who occasionally makes the boys a meal or offers up a warm bed during severe weather. And Moriarty, fuck. He could be like a well-to-do man who previously was in Sherlock’s situation. He somehow moved on from that kind of life, and sees a lot of himself in Sherlock actually, but hates for that reminder. Wants to take Sherlock down, put him back in his place.
Shit, this would be bloody brilliant.
aaaaalllll stuff I want to cram into the ‘#221b baker towers’ tag proper. DAMN YOU TUMBLR.
What the fuck do I need to do to make this happen?
The idea of Moriarty as a cop is deeply appealing. Talk about a spider-web of insidious oppression.
I would give so many dollars to this Kickstarter, just saying.

Have some Moriarty, on the side of the demons. Quote is from ‘Good Omens’ by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.
Pencil, coloured in photoshop with a touchpad. My wrist hurts.
Fixed that for you.

Reptiles Who Look Like Moriarty
“His shoulders are rounded from much study, and his face protrudes forward, and is for ever slowly oscillating from side to side in a curiously reptilian fashion.”
See, it’s canon.
