Summary: When they are children, Moriarty is a game. A story they tell only to each other, in whispers. Jim and Molly Moriarty from the beginning.

Review: A very intersting and creepy take on the coming of age story. In which Jim and Molly are siblings, and share the title of Moriarty. Each of their characters are given added depth from their background, without taking them outside of the characterization that is shown on screen during Sherlock Series 1. 

The main concentration of this story is on Molly, though. Rosa has an amazing grasp on her character. She's no nonsense without being apathetic. No matter how she personally feels about someone, she won't let herself be pushed around unless it's for her own betterment. Not even her brother is worth sacrificing for.

I think that is what makes this such a great Dark Fic. The characters are truly willing to sacrifice each other to get ahead.
