There are so many references to the Canon and various adaptations when it comes to August and his siblings. Here are a few I've noticed.

Perhaps...I should've stayed with Milo.

 There's just...so many family complications right now. 

I don't think this all is about Charlotte or me, not really. Lucien barely said anything to me growing up, and now he's willing to see the world burn because--why? I supposedly died and he spent a few months in prison under another name? It's not like any of his clients cared about his morally-upstanding reputation. I think Lucien or Mum found out something...not good about the Holmeses and sat on it until they had an excuse. Charlotte was just the one who happened to be young and confused and messed up enough to make the kind of mistake they were waiting for. And I was that mistake. 

I wouldn't put it past Lucien to have expected something like this, to have figured it was worth risking his boring little brother who hadn't done anything useful for the sake of a bigger game. Charlotte would hate me for making the comparison, but I saw some of that in how Leander's "out" would play into her and Emma's plan.

I just wish I had a place to think for a while without running again. 
thelastgoodone: Clipping from family tree with the name "August Moriarty" and the parenthetical comment "...improbable." (Family tree)
Name: August Moriarty (also known as "Michael" and "Felix" at various points, nicknamed "Augie" by his ex-fiancée)
Age: 23 as of The Last of August
Profession: grad student at Oxford (ca. 2012-2014), mathematics tutor to Charlotte Holmes (2014), analyst at Greystone (2015?-2017?)
Appearance: Tall white guy with an ill-advised blond fauxhawk. Is described in the past as having floppy, "Disney prince" hair and preferring tweed jackets, but abandons these for a "starving artist" look (t-shirt, ripped jeans, steel-toed boots) by the time James Watson meets him in The Last of August.

August is a nice person, with a tendency to want to see the best in others. Which is a shame, because the people in his life generally aren't and don't.

Dreamwidth tells me this style is called "Neutral Good." That seems appropriate.
