Title: Rise And Fall
Author: [livejournal.com profile] wave_of_sorrow
Beta(s): [livejournal.com profile] jenlee1 and [livejournal.com profile] shadowsofapen
Character(s)/Pairing(s): John Watson, John Watson/Mary Morstan, Sherlock Holmes/John Watson (UST)
Verse: '09!movie
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 7,344
Disclaimer: Don't own. Don't claim. No money being made.
Summary: Of sins and virtues, sinners and saints, and trying to do the right thing.
Spoilers/Warnings: some spoilers for the book canon (FINA, EMPT), minor character death, vague mentions of drug (ab)use, angst, ridiculously long sentences, happy endings that simply do not come.
A/N: The bits at the beginning and end are taken from the poem The Tyger by William Blake. The title plays on the quote by Shakespeare, "Some rise by sin and some by virtue fall." There are two more Shakespeare quotes in the fic itself, both italicalized and from A Midsummer Night's Dream and Troilus And Cressida, respectively.

This was written for [livejournal.com profile] thebetterangels as part of the fic auction hosted on [livejournal.com profile] waltzmatildah 's journal. I'm terribly sorry this took so long, I hope you enjoy it nonetheless!

I would like to thank my two wonderful betas, [livejournal.com profile] jenlee1 and [livejournal.com profile] shadowsofapen , who both did an amazing job. Thank you so much, darlings! I also feel that I should mention, though they tried their best to beat those commas into submission I snuck a few back in when they weren't looking. Any remaining mistakes are entirely mine.

Last but definitely not least, I want to thank the amazing [livejournal.com profile] blacktablet who put the idea in my head, held my hand through writing it, tolerated my panicked emails, gave me inspiration and encouragement, and without whom, frankly, this would never have been written. A large portion of this is entirely thanks to her genius, though she may not always have known she was inspiring me at the time.

Before this turns into even more of an Oscar accpetance speech, here's the fic. As always, comments, constructive criticism and feedback of any kind would be very much appreciated!

Summary: See Author's Note.
Spoilers/Warnings: drug use
A/N: Written for [livejournal.com profile] jenlee1 who prompted "Watson has had it with Holmes' drug abuse - perhaps there's been a particuarly frightening overdose-related incident, or perhaps he's just come home one too many times to find Holmes bleeding and incoherent on the settee.

Either way, he issues an ultimatum - either Holmes gives up the needle, or he's leaving.

What happens from there, dear author(s), is entirely in your hands ;)"


This was written in the middle of the night while I was listening to U2's Every Breaking Wave. Any and all feedback or comments are very much appreciated.
