: The Final Resolution
: Rusty Armour
: Sherlock, John, Mrs. Hudson, Lestrade, Mycroft, Molly, Mary (sort of), Moriarty (sort of)
: Parody, Humour, Slash (mild Mystrade)
: When Sherlock notices that his world is starting to unravel, he questions the very fabric of reality.
: Definite spoilers for “The Final Problem,” not to mention “His Last Vow,” “The Six Thatchers” and “The Lying Detective”. Some more general spoilers for the series as a whole.
: It seems strange to write a 3,000 + word fic revolving around “The Final Problem” when I refused to waste even a minute writing an episode review. However, the parody!muse just wouldn’t leave me alone, so I had to write this. I guess it was my way of coming to terms with “The Final Problem”. Parts of this ended up being more serious than I intended, but I think these moments contribute to the overall theme of the story – as pretentious as that may sound. If you enjoyed “The Final Problem” (and the fourth series in general), you probably shouldn’t read this fic. *g*
I wrote this in two days and didn’t have a beta. Apologies if it shows.
I've now changed the title of this story slightly because a reader pointed out that the phrase "the final solution" has terrible historical associations with it. I should have been more sensitive when I was considering this story's title and I apologize for any unintentional offence that I might have caused.
: With great power comes great responsibility. Thankfully, I have neither. Sherlock
and its characters are owned by other people, though I feel fortunate to have been allowed to play in this wonderful sandbox.
