Notes: Written for watsons_woes July Writing Prompt #10: A Higher Power. I apologize if I've gotten details of the 'Game of Shadows' scenes incorrect, I am writing this on my phone on a Greyhound bus going through the Rocky Mountains and don't have immediate access to the source material. Please forgive any errors, I will fix what needs fixing later.

Summary: The second stage of grief is anger.

Mutual Annihilation

At each mention of 'God's unknowable will' by the memorial priest, Watson's ire rose.

Divine will hadn't killed Holmes; pigheaded impulsivity and the need to best Moriarty had. A need more important to Holmes than friendship and even life.

Holmes had looked him right in the eyes. Right in the eyes, then closed his own, before pulling Moriarty to their doom. God's will was not involved. The inexorable orbit of destruction Holmes and Moriarty shared had collapsed, and Holmes chose to die, taking the evil professor with him.

In John Watson's opinion, God's bloody will could go hang.

(that's it)
