enjoy state of the art information technology

Bella looks up Tony Stark. (There's no reason not to.)

...Okay. He looks familiar. And his death those several months ago was really very suspicious, and she doesn't think anyone has been doing her morgue trick in New York City. And his more reclusive identical twin's body was never found at all. (If there was an identical twin, and not just Tony Stark theatrically pretending to be two people with mirrors or holograms or Photoshop and cooperative witnesses giving insistent interviews and then suddenly being dead and no longer able to pretend. There was, after all no sign of a twin before a sudden debut when he - they - was or were fifteen, and... "Sherlock Holmes", really? There's not even a hint of a twin in Tony's birth announcement, which she checks because that's the obvious thing to check.)

Come to think of it, Mr. Does Not Stick To Flypaper never introduced himself.

She supposes that his cute laser trick didn't work that well, if he got got. (But she saw it burn him. It's a clever weapon, should take almost no skill to wield a continuous beam - what kind of onslaught could have gotten around that?)

Nothing about her routine changes in response to this information.

Until several days later when she's crossing another neighborhood (seventeen to go) and - he just keeps popping up, doesn't he?

"Fancy meeting you here," says Sherlock(?).

"Sherlock Holmes," he says, "at your service." He sketches a bow. "And did you look up my late brother?"
eversomuchfun: Mocking. (<= it must have burned)

"Clone," he says succinctly.

"Because he was incredibly lonely," says Sherlock. "To give you an idea, he popped me out of the tube when he was twelve and neither of his parents knew I existed until they were assassinated a year and a half later. A year and a half which I spent growing at a rate of seven to one and poking my nose into everything I could get my hands on."

"Quite," he says. "I caught up when he was fourteen and proceeded at an ordinary pace from there."
eversomuchfun: Hands. (== I think that's sorted)

"There were eleven of them, and they were hiding in our basement," he explains. "Even I am not paranoid enough to carry a laser pointer in my own fucking home. To my ultimate regret."
eversomuchfun: Speaking, perhaps impatiently. (>= do I make myself understood?)

"A gang of vampires killed everyone I have ever loved—it's a short list—and forcibly turned me. When I woke up, I slaughtered the rest of them and then waited for the man who let them in to come back so I could express my displeasure by torturing him to death. Apparently they were expecting me not to care afterward, but I cannot for the unlife of me imagine why."

—He smiles, abruptly, softly.

"Thank you. Your sympathy is very much appreciated."
eversomuchfun: Looking ceilingward. (<= hardly very sensitive of you)

"Turning into a vampire was the single thing in the world I was most afraid of, before," he says. "It's not so frightening from the other side, but all in all, I would rather have Tony back."
eversomuchfun: Speaking, perhaps impatiently. (>= do I make myself understood?)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-06 11:47 pm (UTC)(link)
"As I knew him, yes. I would not mind him being a vampire as long as he was still essentially Tony, but I have some reason to doubt that would be the case."
eversomuchfun: Upset or uncertain. (>= soul or no soul)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-06 11:59 pm (UTC)(link)
"Even I have some changes. If I met my previous self, I am not sure we'd get along, although I am not nearly what he feared becoming."

"Previously my most compelling motivations were ethics and love of Tony. Now my most compelling motivation is hatred of boredom. I am also rather less upset about being a clone," he adds as an afterthought.

"If I had the sort of fabled destructive tendencies I was originally afraid of, this planet would currently be a smear of molten rock across the cosmos."
