So desirable in every way were the apartments, and so moderate did the terms seem when divided between us, that the bargain was concluded upon the spot, and we at once entered into possession.
Happy Birthday Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, sorry that character you hate is what you’re known for.
‘What is the meaning of it, Watson?’ said Holmes solemnly as he laid down the paper. ‘What object is served by this circle of misery and violence and fear? It must tend to some end, or else our universe is ruled by chance, which is unthinkable. But what end? There is the great standing perennial problem to which human reason is as far from an answer as ever.’
“There is nothing more to be said or to be done tonight, so hand me over my violin and let us try to forget for half an hour the miserable weather and the still more miserable ways of our fellowmen.”
Diary Entry by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, December 1893 (via better-left-invisible)
Trying to write a paper on 'Gloria Scott' and then I started talking about how much of a jerk Victor is until I remembered that isn't from the story. I thought you would appreciate how Texts has leaked into school work. - <3–Anonymous
We made the conscious decision to have Victor be the darker version of John Watson, since we couldn’t really tell a story with two Johns. In the original story, Victor was stubborn and prideful, obviously a Daddy’s boy, and ended up having a mental breakdown/identity crisis after reading the letter. I mean, he was “heartbroken” in Sherlock’s own words and ran off to India to plant tea. Pretty intense.
In my mind, he was more physically threatening/aggressive with Hudson than not. That’s extrapolated from this passage: “Well, matters went from bad to worse with us, and this animal Hudson became more and more intrusive, until at last, on his making some insolent reply to my father in my presence one day, I took him by the shoulders and turned him out of the room. He slunk away with a livid face and two venomous eyes which uttered more threats than his tongue could do.”
Texts Victor is rooted in canon, but yeah, the very dark parts had to be transplanted in.
ACD cranks that soulja boy.
how do ski
you can rly see how much he changed the character
pilot!sherlock looks desperate and kinda needy
official sherlock is a lot more cold and collected
I like to imagine pilot!Sherlock is very similar to university!Sherlock. He seems much younger, much closer to the Sherlock described in A Study in Scarlet. It mystifies me that they chose to change his characterization so much.
Oh my gosh I just have so many Jeremy feels.
I want to love him and snuggle him.
A few ACD scholars have written about how they think Sigerson is his own person. So there’s probably an AU where Jeremy and Sherlock are running around together. Seems like an OT3 with John to me.
iamilex replied to your post: sherlock these women are so much younger than you…
Only by about a decade, give or take. :D Actually, how old is Sherlock? I vaguely remember his age getting discussed before, but I can’t remember if that was here or on the kink meme…
Sherlock is two years younger than John in ACD canon. So, if John is 37ish (according to Scandal), then Sherlock is 35ish.
Nobody hates Holmes like Sir Arthur hates Holmes.
