Author's Notes: Written for the watsons_woes JWP 2016 Prompt #18: From "Handwritten" by The Gaslight Anthem.
And with this pen, I thee wed
From my heart to your distress
Unbeta'd, so please feel free to point out any errors.

Summary: Joan received the letter, with no return address, a few days after meeting Morland Holmes.

My dearest Watson –

I understand from his letters that Sherlock has had some difficulties recently, both legally and with respect to his sobriety. I worry about him. Despite his many fine qualities, Sherlock does not possess my patience, and would fail to thrive in captivity.

I've done all I can, over the past few years, to ensure Sherlock has the support he requires. Apparently those measures have been insufficient. That's very disappointing.

Of course, I am aware Sherlock has other powerful champions, besides myself.

Do you?

With warmest regards and sincere hopes for your continued health and happiness,

Jamie Moriarty

Ooh interesting! How did you imagine the connection to Morland?

Well, I'm still mid-season. But Morland Holmes seems like a big enough player, and dangerous enough, that Moriarty would be well aware of him.
