Also, y'all, I love this show, especially this season: ( Killjoys up to & including 3x04 ''The Lion, The Witch, and the Warlords'' )

The time was during the GREAT HIATUS right after Sherlock fell from the roof of Bart's Hospital and was thought to be dead. We knew that he was alive, but not what had happened to him. I planned to write about how Moriarty had to be bigger than just one man if it could threaten John from beyond the grave. Since Molly was the only one that we were certain knew that Sherlock was alive, she had to be in the story.
My push came when there was a fairy tale fic challenge. I realized that Molly would make a great Little Red Riding Hood, and so I wrote the story about her and the wolf. The problem was, how do I describe all of the machinations of Moriarty's empire. It was too big, and too complicated, so the story trailed away and died.
This was not easy to finish! At the end, I was changing plot points every day. I finally got it done by simplifying the plot. One point of view character instead of three. Drop the police subplot, and just mention it at the end. Find a motivation for Molly's character and cut out anything that does not advance that arc.
When I finished it, it was really stilted and hard to read. I had to open a new window, and retype the entire story to make it flow well. I was reediting sentences up until the minute of posting, and still must have lots of typos. I could not find a beta.
Even so, I am pleased with the work. I pushed through, and completed it. The story works. It still fits in canon, and I was able to link it to my current Season 4 fics by adding details that I could not have known at the time that I started it. It is a great relief to have finished it. Cheers all. Please give me comments if you can.
Patricia Tepes was totally awesome in making me exactly the art I wanted in a time frame that frankly, I didn't deserve. I loved everything she made, and she deserves heaps of Kudoes.
A song that is a cover by another artist. I think this has to be Tori Amos' cover of I don't like Mondays, originally by the Boomtown Rats.
