What sort of name is ‘Benedict Cumberbatch,’ anyway? Not to keen on that blond hair of his… or is it ginger? Looks a bit ridiculous.
And this Martin Freeman character is basically a hippie.
OOC: This post was slightly OOC. Just so you know. And I love Benny’s lovely hair and Martypants’ hippie ways. - BW
I’ll admit, it’s an interesting name. I’m actually quite fond of Benedict’s face. To be honest, I had to do a bit of research but he’s a superb actor.
As for Martin… he oddly reminds me of a hedgehog.
We have… a few times. Sherlock usually starts its off, and usually when I’m at work. He knows better, of course, but he simply can’t help himself. I won’t repeat the texts he’s sent me because they’re not proper for polite company… or any company for that matter.
And they nearly gave me a nosebleed.
Sherlock, don’t even think about sharing those texts here when you get a hold of this… - JW
I think people have very vivid imaginations. I don’t know where they get a lot of this. Some of it’s quite good, while other bits are.. quite disturbing.
And why would someone write a “fanfiction” about Sherlock getting cancer and dying like that?
Anyway, I got to this first. I’m sure Sherlock will add in his two cents later.
To be completely honest… I’m more surprised at the amount of graphic detail some stories tend to get into when involving the more intimate scenes.
It’s somewhat creepy when you think people are writing about these intimate, private parts of your lives, yes. Suppose this comes with ‘fame,’ or whatever it is we have.
I got to this before Sherlock did, so I’ll answer first.
1. His deduction skills.
2. His hair.
3. Those cheek bones.
4. That voice.
5. His humanity.
6. His imperfections.
7. His enthusiasm.
8. His unpredictability.
9. His mind.
10. His sentiment.
I suppose it’s my turn then.
That face he makes when he thinks he’s done something clever. The face that follows when I tell him he was incorrect. Whenever I catch him having conversations with the cat. “Captain Watson” Every time he does that duck thing with his mouth. Day worn jumpers. Sunday mornings. When he thinks I’m not paying attention. The way he habitually licks his lips all the time.
It’s much too difficult to only pick ten things. So I’ve elected to choose the ‘all of the above’ option. - SH
I’m really not. -SH
You are. Sometimes, you are. - JW
Sherlock has never been much for religion, anyway, as it would seem quite a few scientists are. I’m not so sure myself, but there are days when I think there must be some higher power out there… and other days when it feels like we’re on our own. But Sherlock doesn’t care much what other people think of him, so he isn’t easily bothered by people who go out of their way to make the effort to be offended by our relationship. I could go into a rant about how we don’t even hold hands in public, so I don’t understand how this would bother people we’ve never even met. He has made a scene in public before, however, but mostly to embarrass me, I think. The elderly woman whom he kissed me in front of acted rather scandalized. Looking back now, it is a bit amusing.
Are you two ever going to get married?
Curious in Texas
I don’t think Sherlock is really the marrying type. - JW
I’m not. I’m more of the civil union type. -SH
Oh. Well. I didn’t really think you were that type either. That is, to say we haven’t talked about this lately. Really? - JW
But we have talked about it. I think twice. Three times perhaps? -SH
Alright, fine, but we haven’t talked about it lately. I didn’t think you were serious about it. I mean, do you still… do you really want to do that? - JW
Why wouldn’t I be serious? It isn’t exactly a joking matter. -SH
And you’re not prone to joking, Mr. Captain Obvious-I-take-everything-literally-to-a-fault. Okay, well… we could, if you wanted to, make it official. You sure you want to be stuck with me for the rest of our lives? - JW
Well we don’t necessarily have to make anything official. Besides, I thought I had already made that clear to you when we went looking for houses together? -SH
Yes, you did. Just giving you another out, in case you’d changed your mind. Well… we could make it official. Matching, ah, bands and all that - just something simple. - JW
You should know me by now that whenever I have made up my mind on something that I stick to it. This is of no exception to that. Something simple would be preferred, though I draw the line at bridal gowns. -SH
Funny. Seeing as how neither of us are female, no one will be wearing a gown. I might just bring out my best suit for this, however. We don’t have to make a big deal out of it, you know - just have it done at court, maybe just invite a few of our friends as witnesses? - JW
As much as I would like to agree to having a simple court room ceremony, I’m afraid Mother simply won’t allow it. Once word gets out, and knowing Mycroft it will, she’ll be all a flutter with wedding arrangements. -SH
Ah yes, the elusive Mummy Holmes, who I have not actually MET yet. Will she mind that you’re marrying another bloke? I’m fairly certain my parents won’t be overly thrilled. - JW
Considering the fact that she bore no daughters, I would assume she would just be happy with the fact that one of her children is getting married. Being that I am the youngest, she’ll go out of her way to make it a momentous occasion. -SH
Alright. From how you and Mycroft talk about her, I always just figured she was more the traditional type. I imagined she would want at least one of you married and bringing in a few grandchildren, and that is a completely different matter we can discuss later. Maybe just one big decision at a time here. - JW
I believe she has already come to terms with the fact that neither of her boys will be bringing her any grandchildren. Not biologically anyway. Though perhaps it’s best that our family genes end with our generation. -SH
Who knows - Mycroft may yet produce an “heir” or two. Shame for the Holmes name to end with the pair of you. I suppose there’s artificial insemination, or adoption… but, that’s a conversation for another time.
So, are you getting down on one knee or am I? Personally, I would love to see the great Sherlock Holmes in that position. - JW
Mummy Holmes. Apparently she exists, but Sherlock is reluctant to introduce us.
Seriously though, I’m not sure - John Lennon, Diania Princess of Wales, the Queen, President Obama… and Sean Connery, of course. Sorry, suppose that was a few more than just one person.
Sherlock is busy at the moment, so I’ll just answer for now. “Smart but oddly stupid?” That doesn’t sound familiar at all.
Yes Sherlock Holmes, I’m talking about you. Sometimes, you just have to be painfully literal. Sherlock doesn’t always get things I tell him the first time around. Lots of times, he’s not even listening to me. I suppose, you just have to really get his attention, be direct and explain exactly how you feel about the situation. If he values your friendship, I’m sure he’ll see things your way.
Hope this helps.
So, boys - who wears the pants in this relationship?
We both wear pants.
Well… most of the time anyway.
I don’t think that’s what they meant.
Neither of us are really dominant or sub-dominant.
We’re more like equals, I suppose.
Pants, John. They asked about pants, not dominance.
Yes, but they weren’t asking in the literal sense, Sherlock.
They meant, who has the most power.
Well if they wanted to know that, then why didn’t they ask it?
Pants and Power are two entirely different things.
It’s a figure of speech, Sherlock.
It’s derived from the time where women wore dresses and men clearly held the most power in the household.
That Halloween costume doesn’t count. Besides, I only cross-dressed for certain cases which required a more feminine touch.
… you still don’t get it.
