When creating a character, there’s a lot of questions you ask yourself. Whether it’s an original character or one you’ve been playing for a long time, using a character sheet to get to know your character better can always be a nice idea. With it’s help, you’ll be able…
Yo, never be afraid to come and bother my muse on anon or not. I live for destroying them and breaking them to where they can’t return. I love it when people pester them about their relationships and feelings. Just because the muse may feel and say one thing doesn’t mean I, the mun do. I thrive for those asks that challenge my character and, in fact, most of them help build my characterization. So ask away my friends.
He frowned, recalling a few unsolved murders that sounded like what she was describing. ”Well. Taking a vampire in for a statement would be nothing short of a disaster. I’ll come to the location of the kidnapping. But no tricks.” He warned. ”How is the woman related to you? Is she a friend? She isn’t another vampire, is she?”
He couldn’t believe that this vampire nonsense was coming out of his mouth. However, if this was all true, then he had to do what he could to help the lady in question. The detective wanted to wait and get all the facts before he called the entire team into what may be a dangerous situation. Maybe he should have called Donovan or Dimmock in just so he wouldn’t be going into this alone…? Ah well, too late now.
She laughed a little at his comment; well, it was more of a burst of air through her nose, not quite a snort, as she chuckled. “Alright, do you want to follow my car, or come with me?” she offered, figuring he might feel safer if he had a getaway car of his own. But she did enjoy showing off her new Lamborghini. Maybe next time…
She scolded herself mentally for not saying that Marc had seen it. A gay doctor would make anyone feel better about a situation. But Tina had been the one to see the guy. Maybe if she lied… “She’s a very close friend and she lives in the same house as me. She’s a vampire too, yes.” Probably best not to lie to a detective. Not that she was going to bring Tina into this if she could help it.
"I’ll follow you." He replied, not intending to take any chances.
He thought about the situation. Now he had two vampires, or pretend vampires, to contend with. He braced himself for the trip and visit. At least she hadn’t tried to kill or eat him yet. But that didn’t mean that she didn’t intend to when he got to her house.
"I’m ready when you are."
Of course you will, she thought, but smiled at him in a friendly manner. “Alright. It’s not too far from here, really. About three streets away.” She fished her keys out of her pocket and flashed him a grin. “Let’s go then.”
She walked out of the room, knowing he would follow her, and out the front of the building. Her car was parked just off to the right. She glanced over her shoulder and unlocked her car, motioning for him to get into his own before sliding in and rolling down her window. Loud music blasted from her stereo as soon as she started the car, and she took off down the road, keeping an eye on the car he was following her in.
When she finally pulled into the drive, she killed the engine and scrambled out, waiting at the front of the car for Lestrade. Glancing up, she caught a glimpse of Tina in one of the windows and sighed. Best to keep him out of the house, in the sunlight.
YES! Thank you Lu! One reason I was able to love S3 so much was we finally got a glimpse of what goes on in Sherlock’s head and how Sherlock perceives the world. 1) Sherlock is NOT kind to himself. In TEH we begin to see it. John’s voice in his head is derogatory, negative, unkind. And it continues throughout the series, all the way to the culmination in his mind palace where there is not ONE kind soul to him. No one is nice to him in his head. And maybe it’s because that’s how Mycroft has trained him to be, but still. Sherlock has never learned to care about himself, his body, his well-being. Only his mind. And even his mind is unkind. 2) Sherlock perceives everyone as wanting something from him. Be smart, be intelligent, solve it, please can you fix it for me. He and Jim Moriarty are much alike, but mirror opposites still. Is it any wonder Moriarty has a special place in his mind palace? Everyone wants something from Sherlock, and Sherlock is never one to disappoint when it comes to those he cares about. 3) We call Sherlock selfish a lot. And yes, he is, but geeze, given how he sees himself and those around him, really who are the selfish ones?
Sherlock can be an asshole, can be selfish, but he is also, at heart, a person who wants to do good, who wants to please, and who is still that child left feeling different and hurt, like no one wants him because he is so different. S3 really gives us a lot to think about, does it not?
