…I’m just gonna put this right here.
Oh… Okay, Sherlock too.Sherlock Holmes: A Study in Wigs
Don’t forget Moriarty!
Oh dear lord.. WHAT HAVE I STARTED?!
Observation: Sherlock is wearing his bed sheet.
Deduction: Sherlock sleeps naked.
Posit: Sherlock is only wearing the sheet to Skype. He usually wears nothing around the house.
Sherlock walks around the house wearing only a sheet, potentially maybe even less.
Sherlock often doesn’t seem to notice whether John is actually around or not.
If you were prone to bouts of partial or full nudity that you didn’t want anyone to witness, you’d pay more attention to the location of your “flatmate” to prevent embarrassing mishaps.
I infer from this that Sherlock walks around in this state whether John is in the room or not.
If you’re going to be so obvious, then why not say that Sherlock walks around naked all the time? Pff.
I’ll go a little further with the observations, if I may:
Observation #1: At the point we enter the conversation, Sherlock already has his laptop open in the kitchen and has made himself a cup of tea or coffee. Inference: he was already talking to John via Skype before temporarily going back into the bedroom.
Observation #2: When he comes out of the bedroom he has nothing in his hands - nothing that he might have been going back to retrieve. Also, John feels embarrassed. He must have gone back into the bedroom to cover himself up with a sheet, then, probably at John’s request.
Observation #3: It doesn’t seem too early in the day and yet Sherlock seems sleepy. Obviously he was up rather late, then. (That drink is probably coffee not tea).
Observation #4: John was in Dublin the previous day. Since he’s somewhere rural now and it’s probably still morning (unless Sherlock was up really late) it seems unlikely he’s been back to London yet.
Conclusion: Sherlock had the laptop in the bedroom with him (no doubt because he was talking to John in Dublin late into the night after going to bed). His sleep was interrupted by news about a new case - on learning where the crime scene was he contacted John to send him to the location. He then went back to sleep, then once John was at the scene he woke Sherlock up again via Skype. Sherlock, needing coffee, got up without bothering to dress, carried Skype-John into the kitchen, talked to him while strutting about naked making coffee before finally giving in to John’s pleas that he go and cover himself up. Because late at night is one thing, but mid-morning on a crime scene with a bunch of police officers looking over your shoulder at your naked flatmate is another.
So many talented people in this fandom…and they use their talent to contribute to all the right causes.
Reblogging again because this post is made of perfect.
I love this fandom with all my heart.
Mrs Hudson just walked in on a terribly awkward moment. Yes, Hide it with the magazine Sherlock. She’ll never know.
Haha, the comment above.
Day Five. Favourite Episode from series 2:
A Scandal in Belgravia.
I like this one best of the second season, because this is the one where he has fewest flaws. I mean, I feel that Sherlock got all very human in the second season, and there is something in me that don’t like that. I didn’t like that he got scared and started (almost) crying in The Hound Of Baskerville, and I most certainly didn’t like that he jumped of that building, in the way that made him a hero. I know he didn’t die, but it still doesn’t make it better, maybe worse in one way. Though, of course, I gotta say I also like the fact that he cares about his people, but still.
SHERLOCK CHALLENGE [day 1/10]: Favorite Male Character » Sherlock Holmes.
Don’t make people into heroes, John. Heroes don’t exist, and if they did, I wouldn’t be one of them.
I kinda don’t like the way they made him into just what he said doesn’t exist. A hero.
Day Four. Favourite Episode from series 1:
No doubt in my mind that my answer on that one is Study in Pink. I love that one, I’ve seen it like 15 times or something. I think I like it so much ‘cause this is the episode were we are introduced to all the characters. I think that they’ve put a bit more character into the characters in the first one, since that’s the first one we see. I’m not saying they haven’t in the later episodes, but not as much as in the first one. Also, all my favorite quotes are from that episode.
Day Three. Second Favourite character:
After sleeping on if for some hours now, I gotta say dr. John Watson. I mean, I like them all, (mostly!!) but he stands out.
Day Two. Favourite Female character:
Uhm, this one was harder than the first. I like Molly, and I like Irene Adler (I kinda changed my mind about her, sort of) but I gotta say Mrs. Hudson. She is so sweet and lovely. “I’m your landlady, not your housekeeper, dear.”
Day 1. Favorite male character:
Sherlock Holmes, no doubt.
