Title: Encompassed by Evil
Characters: Watson, mentions of Holmes
Word count: 522
A/N: Amnesty #3 - Words to live by prompt. I read Connie Willis' 'Doomsday Book' a few weeks ago, and the quote she uses from Brother John Clyn was incredibly striking so I thought I would use a phrase from that. "So that notable deeds should not perish with time, and be lost from the memory of future generations, I, seeing these many ills, and that the whole world encompassed by evil, waiting among the dead for death to come, have committed to writing what I have truly heard and examined; and so that the writing does not perish with the writer, or the work fail with the workman, I leave parchment for continuing the work, in case anyone should still be alive in the future and any son of Adam can escape this pestilence and continue the work thus begun.
" I used the quote 'waiting among the dead for death to come" in this piece, and drew the title from it as well.
