SH: Good Old-Fashioned VillainThe year he'd learned how to talk was the year everything turned bad for the Moriarty family.
His parents had, innocently enough, bought Grimm's Tales to read to him. Child's tales, tall tales and fables; stories that grew within a child's mind, forming their imagination.

and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
