Anthea's Day Off
by CaffieneKitty
-




A: Have found Moriarty. Please advise.

M: Anthea, it's your day off, you shouldn't be working. Has the bank trace finally yielded a result?

A: I'm not working, and it's not from the trace. I'm at a night club on Oxford Street. He's *here*. Have called in strike team, eta 5 minutes.

M: I have only minimal CCTV coverage in that club.

A: I know, why do you think I come here?

M: Observe and report every 15 seconds until the team gets in place. Do not approach him and take no unnecessary risks.

A: If you insist, sir.

A: Target appears quite drunk.

A: I believe he's attempting to perform something called a 'stanky leg'.

A: He's still drinking heavily. Mimosas.

A: He's not alone.

M: Description of associate?

A: Male, dark hair, 6 foot, 13 stone, seems military, tattoo on right arm, scars.

A: Associate also drinking. Has bottle of rye and looks quite put out.

A: Moriarty now attempting 'the Worm'.

A: Worm unsuccessful. Dancers falling. Utter mayhem. Have lost sight of target.

M: Don't approach.

A: It's a club, sir. Among many other things, I do know how to keep from being seen in one when it suits me. Also, there's mayhem.

M: Be careful. The team will arrive in 3 minutes.

A: Target reacquired. Bottom of dog-pile on dance floor. Mimosa everywhere.

A: Target's associate pulling him from pile. Highly proficient at cursing. Definitely ex-military.

A: Associate has slung Moriarty over his shoulder and is in process of extracting him from the club. Crowd is making lewd suggestions about what he intends to do with Moriarty.

M: Which exit?

A: Heading to back, multiple exits, leading to Falconberg Mews and Tottenham Court Underground.

M: I'll trigger a delay on the Central and Northern Lines.

A: Have advised team, their revised ETA will be too late, am following.

M: No unnecessary risks.

A: It's not unnecessary.

A: Am following by sound. Moriarty singing a song about coconuts, very loud, high-pitched, carries well over club music.

A: Associate getting delayed by crowd, is frustrated, pushing through.

A: Associate has pulled fire alarm. Club evacuating, chaos. Have warned team to expect masses of confused civilians on arrival.

A: I've lost them. I'm sorry, sir.

M: The team will gather statements, and I will be personally scrutinizing all the CCTV feeds in the area.

A: I'll come into the office and help but it may take some time. Pushing in this crowd with the fire alarm may start a crush.

M: That's all right Anthea, leave your statement with the team commander and try to relax. It's your day off.

This is what Anthea does for FUN! :-)

God, Moriarty must be such a pain in the ass to know, even if he's not your enemy...

Given his personality in TGG, I figured that'd be the case. :-D

I love Anthea...
I imagine she's the type to stand in a dark corner and sip her drink when clubbing. I also imagine she enjoys crowd-watching, even though she may find them boring and tasteless.

Great fic! Need more Mycroft & Anthea!

I know! I saw the prompt and that was the first thought in my head. :-D

Moriarty would sing "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts," wouldn't he? Loved this!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: November 22nd, 2010 06:28 am (UTC) (Link)
Indeed he would. :-)

Ha! I'm assuming the associate was Moran.

caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: November 22nd, 2010 08:03 am (UTC) (Link)
That was the implication, but since he hasn't showed up in this series yet I didn't want to specify.

Hahahaha, what is the worm thing? A kind of dance?

Ah, need more Anthea fic.

How to do the Worm. If you poke around YouTupe I'm sure there are videos.
tardis_stowaway From: tardis_stowaway Date: November 22nd, 2010 08:49 am (UTC) (Link)
Utterly hilarious! Moriarty's unsuccessful attempt to do the Worm killed me with laughter. I love Anthea's snarky texts.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: November 22nd, 2010 04:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
From what we've seen of Anthea, she's got a quiet sarcastic wit, so I'm glad that came through.

LOL

LOL! Loved it! Loved Moriarty's behaviour and Anthea's reaction to it.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it!

Thanks! If Mycroft and Anthea ever decide to have more text conversations in my head, I'll post them, but no promises.
